Rated 4 out of 5 by from passion, emotion, intensity : LIGHT UP THE NIGHT is the fifth instalment in M.L. Buchman’s adult, contemporary The Night Stalkers military romance series focusing on a group of specially trained military personnel from the U.S. Army secret helicopter regiment the 160th SOAR (Special Operations Aviation Regiment). This is helicopter pilot Trisha O’Malley and CIA SEAL operative William (Bill) Bruce’s storyline. Although it is the fifth book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. The storyline finds Bill and Trisha at odds with one another. Bill doesn’t trust the military and prefers to work by himself. But finding himself with a group of pilots and a paramilitary unit, who rescued Bill from a Somali attack, he is about to undertake one of the most dangerous missions of his life-the SOAR unit has asked him to assist on their next mission to take down a group of Somali pirates who have captured several boats, including an American yacht, near the Horn of Africa. Bill’s reluctance stems from his need to work alone and his attraction to one helicopter pilot-Trisha O’Malley. The relationship between Bill and Trisha is one of immediate attraction but on the surface they rub each other the wrong way. From their turbulent first meeting the couple is in a continuous battle with their emotions and feelings for one another. But an urgent call back home will find Bill heading State side leaving a confused Trisha behind-only Trisha has her own demons to address before she is able to continue with the mission. The sex scenes are passionate and sensual. The world building continues throughout the series with the familiar names and places, military jargon and speech. The secondary characters are colorful, engaging and include many of the previous storyline couples and characters. Their relationship to one another is of respect, friendship, comaraderie and love. They are all very protective of one another and will ensure that no one, even the new guys, will place anyone in danger. With reference to the military jargon, there is a vast amount of technical information and detailed military language throughout the storyline but it does not deter from the overall premise. M. L. Buchman has executed his research very well. M. L. Buchman weaves a story of romance into a military action series with passion, emotion and an intensity that is breathtaking and real. You will feel the incredible highs and lows, the thrill of the hunt, and the honor that each member of the unit instills within his or herself. LIGHT UP THE NIGHT is a realistic and intelligent look at a military rescue operation with a little bit of romance on the side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from had me hooked Buchman develops this story in striking clarity. At times I felt like I was in a war zone myself. I loved how Buchman got technical without it dragging the story down. I found it to be a very gripping read, as well as a refreshing change from so many authors who simply allude to events rather than developing them. The colourful descriptions in this novel allow you to see what the characters were seeing. The shift between day and night, US and foreign added a dramatic counterpoint. The cast of characters in this novel were perfectly suited to the story at hand. I appreciate how everyone was more than simply their commission. Buchman works their everyday lives in with the events that they faced, showing how they balance. The main characters were exceptionally well and naturally developed. All aspects of their lives were developed, not simply those directly related to the story. And I love the way the main character thinks. By simply thinking, ?Gods she was stupid,? she opens herself up to an entirely new set of beliefs and principles that I found quite easy to relate to. As a whole, this suspenseful
