Review: The Night is Mine by M L Buchman
The Night is Mine is the first book in the new Night Stalkers series by M L Buchman and a Romantic Suspense from SourceBooks Casablanca.
Name: Emily Beale
Mission: Fly undercover to prevent the assassination of the First Lady, posing as her executive pilot
Name: Mark Henderson, Code Name Viper
Mission: Undercover role of wealthy, ex-mercenary boyfriend to Emily
Their jobs are high risk, high reward:
Protect the lives of the powerful and the elite at all cost.
Neither expected that one kiss could distract them from their mission. But as the passion mounts between them, their lives and their hearts will both be risked...and the reward this time may be worth it.
Captain Emily Beale is the first woman to ever make it through the SOAR (Special Operations Aviation Regiment) training. Now part of the elite military fighting squad that calls themselves the Night Stalkers, Emily is flying a helicopter in the deserts of Afghanistan.
And loving every minute of it.
When an unexpected request sends Emily stateside, she is devastated. As a pilot - she wants nothing to do with being on the ground - or playing bodyguard to the wife of her childhood crush.
But that childhood crush is now the President of the United States - and her boss. So she can’t really say no.
And right now, getting out of Afghanistan might be a good idea - because Major Henderson kissed her. An offense that could have both of them thrown out of the military. No matter that the kiss was scorching hot - it’s not worth her career....
I enjoyed The Night is Mine.
I will admit that finding out M L Buchman is a man may have given me preconceived notions that a Romantic Suspense written by a man could not be as good as one written by a woman.
And I did find marked differences. There is more action in The Night is Mine and the sex scenes are less graphic (let’s be honest, the ladies can write some raunchy sex scenes) - but I liked it. A lot.
I give The Night is Mine 4 out of 5 stars and I can’t wait for more from the series - and from Mr. Buchman.
