This “Best 5 Romance of 2013” (B&N) is back and better than ever!
This book, #4 in The Night Stalkers series, was a wild one to write. The original series was conceived as filling the four seats of a DAP Hawk attack helicopter with four amazing women:
- The Night Is Mine – Emily Beale as the pilot
- I Own the Dawn – Kee Smith as top shooter / crew chief
- Wait Until Dark – Connie Stevens as a shooter / chief mechanic of the bird
- Take Over at Midnight – Lola LaRue as the copilot
That all made sense. And the next two books were to be aboard the two-seater MH-6M Little Bird. So I was all set there. Or so I thought. Emily Beale, as always, had several surprises for me. This was the book where she truly stepped into and defined for the rest of the series, the hard-ass commander role–at the same time she took on the mama-bear guardian role.
But that wasn’t enough of a challenge for her. Oh no! Not for Major Emily Beale. She also had to cut her feet out from under herself…which forced her to launch a whole new romantic suspense series of the Firehawks while still making Lola LaRue the chaotic, conflicted romantic heroine fit to take her place. Seriously, the woman needs to take a break. Here Emily and Lola are, back better than ever in this fully re-edited version, to show us how it’s done.
Take Over at Midnight

They both came from the streets, now they must save a nation.

Her father said Lola LaRue would grow up to be a stripper and a whore. Instead she became a top helicopter pilot for the Army’s secret Night Stalker regiment.
Tim Maloney ran from his family to work in a chop shop, parting out stolen cars.
Both their lives changed the day the planes flew into the World Trade Center. Little did they know that they’d have to come together to save their country from the next great attack.
