Vacations should be an adventure, right?

By
Kat Martin



Every summer we try to have some kind of adventure. Not the hearty kind we used to undertake--like riding horseback into the high country or camping in a tent for a week. But whatever we choose, summer is great time of year for a getaway.


This year, we took off from our home in Montana and drove to the Western Writers of America conference in Albuquerque. We drove only back roads, just meandering two lanes, that wound us through six different states.


We visited Kathleen and Michael Gear--the authors of the PEOPLE series that takes place 10,000 years ago. They live on a buffalo ranch in Wyoming. We went to Moab, the rock-climbers paradise, where one of our grandsons lives. Spectacular scenery, like no other place in the country.


We were in Santa Fe for a couple of days--oh, that town is so cool. Historic buildings and gorgeous art galleries, to say nothing of the incredible New Mexican food. Off the beaten path, we saw tiny Indian villages and churches that were hundreds of years old. If you’ve never done a cross country road trip, it’s really a worthwhile adventure.


Speaking of adventure, DEEP BLUE is being re-issued September 1st, with a gorgeous new hunky male on the cover. Conner Reese is a salvage boat captain who is hunting for sunken Spanish treasure off the coast of Jamaica. He isn’t happy to have lady reporter, Hope Sinclair, along for the ride. It’s high action all the way and of course plenty of hot romance. If you haven’t read DEEP BLUE, I hope you’ll give it a try.


So tell me--what is your favorite adventure? Love to hear from you. Have a great summer. Kat







For reporter Hope Sinclair, writing about the recovery of a sunken Spanish treasure off Pleasure Island should be her big break. Yet Hope can't help feeling she's been hand—picked for this job for all the wrong reasons. Someone wants Hope out of New York-and off a story that could blow a corruption case wide open. But if they think sending her to paradise will shut her up, they've got another thing coming ...


Treasure hunter and former Navy SEAL Conner Reese isn't happy to have Hope along for the ride. He doesn't need the publicity, nor does he want a gorgeous redhead driving his crew—and himself—to distraction. But there's something else. Conner can sense extreme danger, and danger is following Hope Sinclair very, very closely ...

We love to take back roads and that has lead us to many adventures. We once used our GPS to find a restaurant. It took us to a dirt road that had not been used in ages and finding our way out was difficult.

Kat, Your summer adventure sounds like a lot of fun! My hubby and I are always taking back roads and not arriving at our daughter's on time. She's learned she'll see us when she sees us. ;)

My favorite adventure is exploring somewhere new, and really getting a chance to spend time checking it all out. I love learning all about the history of a place, and interesting events that occur there.
