TAKE OVER AT MIDNIGHT
Military romance writers put a lot of research into their stories, and one look at Buchman’s Take Over at Midnight gives credence to this statement. Readers will be amazed at the attention to technical detail that is expertly woven into the fabric of the story. Moreover, this detail doesn’t disrupt the fluidity, and the average romance reader will be able to appreciate how the book flows seamlessly between the military aspect and the emotional aspect. With Buchman’s latest in the Night Stalkers series, she proves her literary military romance prowess with likable and multifaceted characters, a good plot and riveting action.
With scars from her past, Chief Warrant Officer Lola LaRue is not looking for permanency in a relationship; she’s looking to do her job and do it well. Sergeant Tim Maloney is a love ’em and leave ’em type until he meets Lola, who more than just turns his head; she quickly captures his heart. Lola tries to fight their connection and write it off as a mere fling, but when Tim starts thinking in terms of “we,” will she allow herself to fall completely? With the threat of biological warfare looming, will they be able to stop it in time, or will all their work be for naught? (SOURCEBOOKS, Dec., 384 pp., $7.99)
