First in a thrilling military romantic suspense series based on the real-life elite helicopter pilots who transport Navy SEALs and Delta Force teams in and out of combat and covert missions. (SOAR are the heroes of Black Hawk Down.)

Ace-pilot Captain Emily Beale goes undercover as bodyguard to the First Lady, with her rugged commander, Major Mark Henderson, who is determined to cover her back. Can she learn to keep her desire at bay before her covert mission implodes

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun military romantic suspense February 1, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Night is Mine by M. L. Buchman has got to be the lightest-weight military-oriented romantic suspense story I've ever read, in spite of the number of times the heroine gets injured. What I'm saying is that I found the story to be a tremendous amount of fun, and I absolutely got sucked way into it the first night, but that I totally checked my reality-meter at the door. And I had a wilder ride than any of the chopper pilots in the story!

Let's start with our heroine. Emily Beale is a Captain in the U.S. Army. This is totally believable. And she is a helicopter pilot. Again, totally believable. She is also a member of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) generally referred to as SOAR, the elite unit that transports Navy SEALs and Delta Force teams in and out of covert missions. In other words, she flies in forward combat operations. I want to believe this is possible, but I don't think we're there yet.

Emily is the first and so far only woman in SOAR. And as the story opens, she and her unit are watching a profile of her that is being played on CNN. In spite of the secrecy that surrounds SOAR, this profile was okayed by "Command". Because Emily is not just an ace-pilot. Her father is a career FBI agent and is now the head of that agency. And when Emily was growing up in the suburbs of DC, the "boy next door" that she had her girlhood crush on, well he's now the President of the U.S. The youngest president ever. And no, he's not Clinton. And Mrs. President sure ain't Hillary.

That CNN profile showed nothing of Emily's piloting skills and everything about how good she looks in her flightsuit and how well she's figured out how to cook in the desert with minimal supplies. Someone back at CNN turned it into a girlie "puff piece".

4.0 out of 5 stars An Action-Packed Free Fall into Danger and Suspense April 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Captain Emily Beale may have been born to fly, but she CHOSE to both be the best and fly the best. She's the only woman to ever qualify to fly with the Night Stalkers, the Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR), flying Black Hawk helicopters in combat in service to her country. In achieving that goal she's fought tirelessly to be perfect, to fit into a world where only men dare tread, fighting more than a war - battling stereotype and prejudice just as fiercely.

She is a triumph and a credit to her country. It's all she has ever wanted to be. So when Emily is suddenly pulled from her division and brought stateside for a security detail that equates to little more than babysitting the First Lady of the United States, Emily is...less than happy for several reasons. Not the least of which is that she can't turn down a direct request from her Commander in Chief, even though she grew up with him.

Still, she's not the only one fuming over her new assignment.

Major Mark "Viper" Henderson is furious when his best combat pilot is yanked from his command by his superiors without so much as a by-your-leave and little in the way of explanation, apology, or information. He respects the hell out of Beale's skills with a Hawk and there isn't another pilot he trusts more to get the job done. Her reassignment will create a hole where her talent once shone.

And he shouldn't have kissed her. That wasn't the brightest move he's ever made. Not only because it was the height of impropriety and broke several significantly punitive regulations, but because it was motivated by a painful ball of frustration, fear, and fantasy that he's worked hard to keep under wraps. Plus, now that he's tasted her, felt her against him, he has memory to add to his dreams and imagination.

3.0 out of 5 stars Take the pilot's seat! February 6, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Night is Mine by M. L. Buchman is a collective throttle into an interesting suspense! Buchman's descriptions are an "All Access Pass" for what lies in the cockpit. I thoroughly enjoyed all the attention to detail, it felt as if I were sitting in the pilot's seat. I just adore a good military suspense, Emily played her part well, yet I was left without the more serious tones I 'm used to in a romantic suspense. I enjoyed the story until the rules of engagement changed and Emily became the First Lady's chef. I fear it left me feeling as if I had been cheated of what could have been a truly excellent story if Emily hadn't left her post. Taking the story all the way to the White House completely changed the experience of the journey. Emily's father being the Director of the FBI and the President a childhood friend seemed too far fetched. Mark's stolen moments with the First Lady, just didn't ring true to me. It is in my opinion that the conduct that compromised the chain of command between Mark and Emily also swayed my opinion of book. I wish there had been a more realistic romantic relationship between characters. I enjoyed the Night Stalkers brotherhood, I believe it is a strong concept that will unite further stories in the series. I hope to read more from Buchman in the future, his writing is rich in detail and gives the reader a wonderful view.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great And Interesting Find June 15, 2012
By Bukcrz
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Alright! A man who can write a romance that I never suspected written by a man, (found out after I've finished the book) A new author for me but unlike the rest of new authors I've pick up lately, I will be watching and waiting for the next book from this author.
Military themed books are not my first choice when looking for my next romance fix but this book's beginning intrigued me. It engaged my interest from page one to the end.
A strong heroine: not mouthy, not bitchy, nor even masculine. Her strength came from her skill that she can pit toe to toe to anyone in her field. Yet she does acknowledge the heart of a woman in her and never denied it. Has enough family and personal drama to make her character believable and relatable. (And I think she is the force propelling the story and not shared by her love interest.)
As for the hero: `sigh' Eat your hearts out ladies. He is tall, black hair, gray eyes that is always covered by his ray-ban, physically fit and attractive, flies a Black Hawk (just like the heroine), high rank, and a heart stopping smile. Oh and did I mentioned I think he is from Montana - his parents has a ranch there - and yet he can curl toes with his perfect Texan drawl when he needed?
As I am not as familiar with military romance or jargon - you know SEALS, Delta Force, Special Forces, or in this book SOAR - I got lost often when the author goes monologue and explain or describe something military in nature. I might take it in small dosage but sometimes it goes on and on. Also the heroine's strength is too perfect for me so it's hard to be totally swept in by the fantasy and story.
Other than that, the book is worth reading and I did not feel cheated of the time I spend on it.
