Bring On the Dusk by M. L. Buchman

This interesting military romantic suspense series continues with one of my favourite pairings I’ve come across in the series so far. Featuring strong Special Forces heroes and women who have been making headway in similar careers, working as pilots on dangerous missions, it’s interesting that it’s a rare male author in the genre who constructs such strong and capable heroines. And no, I don’t find them unrealistic or intimidating. Somehow these women also come across as realistic people you might meet in the street.

I do think the series – this is book #6 – is reaching a point where you might not want to start here. Yes, the stories are more or less standalones, but we’re at a point where past characters feature and where some, like our hero, Michael, have already played big parts in previous books. I think you’re better off meeting him in a book before this one.

This is real military romance, meaning the military aspect isn’t just window dressing to set up the male characters as sexy and heroic. They actually train and actually do their jobs, and the author doesn’t shy away from the military details.

The Night Stalkers has to be one of the best-researched series in the genre you’ll find, and I really appreciate the more realistic feel author M. L. Buchman gives to his books.

    1. I read his posts online and I really respect him. I know it was hard to turn up at romance writing conventions and things, but he’d determined to create strong female heroines.
      I think his books have less romantic fluff in them than books by women, but he also respects women so much, and never makes them victims.
      Also – I just love military romance!
