Behind the Scenes of a Lingerie Fashion Show.
One of the fun things about writing is the places your research takes you. In INTO THE FURY, Ethan
Brodie, a bodyguard at Brodie Operations Security Services-- BOSS,Inc, the guys
call it--is hired to protect the models in the La Belle lingerie fashion when
they receive threatening notes.
Ethan isnâ€™t happy with the assignment. Heâ€™s been having trouble with his
ex-girlfriend and heâ€™s sworn off women. The last thing he wants is to travel
with what he thinks will be a group of hot-bodied, air-head divas on a cross
Worse yet, heâ€™s promised his cousinâ€™s wife heâ€™ll watch out for her close friend,
Valentine Hart, one of the models on the tour. When one of the women is
murdered, things go from bad to worse, with copycat killers, unruly fans, and
millions of dollars in diamonds.
Ethan has his hands full, and of course, he is rapidly learning that being a
lingerie model is a whole lot harder than he thought. And the women, including
Valentine, are a whole lot smarter.
In order to get a feel for what a lingerie model--think Victoriaâ€™s
Secret--actual does, I did a lot of research online. The fashions shows take
hours of grueling practice and dozens of costume changes. The women can make up
to eight thousand dollars an hour, but they earn every dime!
Itâ€™s a glamorous job but it requires an amazing amount of discipline, physical
exercise, and a strict diet to keep their bodies in perfect shape. There is lots
of travel, long days, and all the partying is a myth. Hangovers do not make for
I had fun with the clothes, the brilliant colors, the extravagant fabrics--what
little they actually wear! What woman wouldnâ€™t love to look good in feathers,
sequined thongs, and sky-high heels--especially if she winds up in bed with a
hunky guy like Ethan Brodie.
I hope youâ€™ll watch for INTO
THE FURY and that you enjoy the glitz and glamour as Ethan is drawn into
And I hope youâ€™ll watch for the next two BOSS Inc. novels, INTO THE
WHIRLWIND and INTO THE FIRESTORM. Till then all best and happy
Take death threats against ten of La Belle's most beautiful
lingerie models as they travel the country on a widely publicized fashion show
tour, mix with macho bodyguards, throw in murder, mayhem, copycat killers, and
millions of dollars in diamonds, and you have INTO THE FURY, Kat Martin's newest
Ethan Brodie goes head-to-head with Valentine Hart in this novel of intrigue,
fast-paced action, and steamy romance.
For New York Times bestselling author Kat Martin, a career in
real estate led her down the road to romance.
Through real estate, Kat
found her own perfect match--her husband, Western author Larry Jay Martin.
"We were on opposing sides of a transaction--I represented the seller and
he represented the buyer," Kat recalls.
A short time after the two became
acquainted, Larry asked her to read an unpublished manuscript of an historical
western he'd written. Kat fell in love with both the book and the
"It was quite a romantic story," she admits. "I'd still like to
see it get published." Then, after doing some editing for her future husband,
she thought she'd try her own hand at writing.
Kat moved on to become the
bestselling author of over fifty historical and contemporary romance novels. To
date, 15 million copies of her books are in print, and she's been published
around the globe, including Germany, Norway, Sweden, China, Korea, Bulgaria,
Russia, England, Estonia, Lithuania, South Africa, Italy, Poland, Thailand,
Portugal, Turkey, The Slovak Republic, Spain, Argentina, Estonia, Czech Republic
When she's not writing, Kat also enjoys skiing and traveling,
particularly to Europe. Currently, she's busy writing her next book.
A bodyguard, a bounty hunter, a P.I.--the men of Brodie Operations
Security Service, Inc. are down for the job. . .
Sinners, whores, and
sluts beware--your time is at hand: a faceless menace is threatening lingerie
models on a cross country tour, and Ethan Brodie is there to defend and
Ethan's learned the hard way that beauty is no substitute for
character. So even though Valentine Hart is one of the most breathtaking women
he's ever seen, he's keeping his hands off and his eyes open. Or that's what he
Then one of the models is murdered, and the closer Ethan
gets to the answers, the closer he finds himself to Valentine--and the hotter
the pressure feels. There's more to Val--more to the other girls--than he could
have guessed. But one is keeping a secret that could kill them all.
