Take Over at Midnight-M.L. Buchman

Take Over at Midnight M.L. Buchman Sourcebooks, Dec 3 2013, $7.99 ISBN 9781402258190 Since her personal goal is to become a military helicopter pilot, Chief Warrant Officer Lola LaRue diligently performs her tasks while serving in Afghanistan. When she learns of her assignment to Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR), the CW2 is ecstatic. As she arrives at SOAR’s dumpy home base in Bati, Pakistan, Lola meets her teammates and quickly draws blood which “certifies” her as a Black Adder. Lola and “Crazy” Sergeant Tim Maloney hit it off, while Sergeant Kee treats her with scorn. Though thoughts of Tim constantly intrude, the newcomer concentrates on her dangerous missions in order to prove her worthiness as a female SOAR female pilot to her role model Major Emily Beale. Besides Lola rationalizes that crazy Tim comes from a large loving family and she comes from a whorehouse. The fourth Night Stalkers military romance (see Wait Until Dark, The Night Is Mine and I Own the Dawn) is a fabulous soaring thriller. Although nicknamed Crazy for a reason, Tim is similar to previous series male heroes in love; while Lola brings freshness with her horrible past impacting her relationships as the child is the adult. Filled with seemingly realistic action especially in the sky, in-fighting politics and a wonderful romance; readers will enjoy this entry. Harriet Klausner
