A Party To Remember – Kat Martin

I love New Year’s Eve. When I was younger, I was pretty much a wallflower who sat home year after year. I would watch the glass ball going down in Times Square and wish I was there. As an adult I’ve tried to make up for all those lost New Year’s Eves and rarely miss going out on the town.

I love to dress up in black sequins and high heels, and am fortunate that my husband is a knockout in a tuxedo. One of my favorite New Year’s parties was in Beverly Hills. I was invited to a function that was the height of elegance and even had celebrities in attendance. I remember seeing Hugh O’Brien, who used to be Wyatt Earp on TV, a really gorgeous guy back then, and Faye Dunaway, who was class personified.

For me New Year’s Eve is champagne and romance, and being a romance writer, why wouldn’t I adore it?

This year, besides going out on the town, I’ll be celebrating the re-release of one of my all time favorite books–HOT RAIN. The hero, Jake Dawson, would look gorgeous in a tux–or better yet, nothing at all. Allie Parker is blond and sexy, and the chemistry between them burns. Jake’s an undercover agent working to catch a gang of drug smugglers. Unfortunately, Allie Parker believes he’s one of the thugs who have taken her prison and stashed her on the yacht they are taking to Mexico.

Jake has a helluva time keeping Allie safe and at the same time playing the roll of her captor. There’s a lot of humor in this one, which is why my readers chose it back when it first came out as their all-time favorite.

The book has been out of print for nearly ten years, so I’m hoping readers who haven’t had a chance to read it will give it a try. It’s got a fabulous new cover and will be out in e-book format for the first time ever.

I hope you’ll try HOT RAIN and that you enjoy. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Very best wishes,

Kat

  1. We didnt have a good NewYears Eve,I hoped to be on the couch reading a book,but,we ended up in a ditch an waiting for a tow truck for over a hour ,,,,not good,but we werent hurt or neither was the car so it was okay,,,we went home an jumped in the bed to sleep in the NewYear

  2. Wow, Kat, It sounds like you’ve spent New Year’s Eve in some amazing ways! I love the idea of decking out to the tens and hitting the town.

    “Hot Rain” sounds steamy. I’ll have to put it on my TBR for 2012.

    Happy New Year!

  3. Haven’t been out on a New Year’s Eve for years. The last one I remember was going to a town, 15 miles north and meeting friends. When we had partied enough and decided togo home, it had been snowing for several hours and we had to drive home in it. Fortunately we had 4-wheel drive, but even so, it was scary. We got home as the sun was coming up.
    HOT RAIN sounds good. Will have to checkit out for my NEW e-reader! YAY!
    Have a great New Year.

  4. Hi Kat, sounds like you had a great New Year’s Eve. I spent the evening reading. I brought in the new year with Emaly March’s new book Lover’s Leap and it was very good.

    Hot Rain sounds really good so I will be looking for it.

  5. Kat, congratulations on the re-release of HOT RAIN. Wow, that guy on the cover is really hot! Great title and great cover….an unbeatable combination. Loved the video. Thanks for coming to blog with us again. We always enjoy having you.

    Wishing you much success in 2012!

  6. HOT RAIN looks like a super read. Congratulations on it’s re-release!

    Sounds like you know how to party on New Year’s. When our family was young our best friends, who also had 4 children about the same age as ours, would come and spend the night. It was also our Christmas gathering with them and with sleding and chores being a part of it the whole time was great fun.

  7. Hi Kat. Congratulations on the re-release of Hot Rain. Sounds great. Love the cover.

  8. Hi, guys! Happy New Year! Well, we get a chance to start over again. Anyone make any new year’s resolutions? Mine is to be more positive, take time to smell the roses–in between working like crazy! Always enjoy blogging on this website…maybe because you all love cowboys and so do I! warmest, kat

  9. I stay at home on New Year’s Eve.
    Congrats on the reissue of Hot Rain!

  10. I was at a wedding this New Years Eve.. What a great way to start the year, by watching a lovely couple start a new life in a new year…

    Can’t wait to read this book.. Love the video…

    Happy New Year..

  11. Kat, sounds like you had a really fun New Years celebration. And congrats on the re-release of Hot Rain – looks fabulous!

  12. We went out to dinner for New Years Eve–the first time we’ve done that in years. Had a fun evening and boated back home to fireworks under a gillion stars.

    Vickie C, glad you’re okay!

    Kat, Hot Rain sounds fab. Glad it’s available again.

  13. Sounds like some great times this New Year’s. We winter at a town on the beach…one of these days, home to boat out into the harbor and watch the fireworks. We have a dock…now all we need is a boat! Will pass your cudos on to my husband, who did the video. I liked it, too! kat

  14. I was hoping I had HOT RAIN in my stash of unread books, but I haven’t found it yet. Sounds good. I like stories high in suspense and a secret identity thrown in is a bonus.
    I enjoy your books. You always have well drawn, complex characters, and stories that take interesting detours. They are certainly never boring and always well worth the read.

    My husband is usually in be by 10 every night and New Year’s Eve is no exception. In our 40 years together, we have gone to two parties. I usually stay up and watch the ball drop on TV.

    I hope this year’s New Year’s Eve celebration was a memorable one for you. Best of luck with your rerelease of HOT RAIN. I will definitely be looking for it.
