“The action is tight and fast paced, as we’ve come to expect from Stephanie Tyler. I was engrossed in it as much as the love story, which is not always the norm for me.” ~Under the Covers
Lonely is the Night is the 5th and final installment in Stephanie Tyler’s Shadow Force series and I have to say from the start that I’ll be sad to see it go. I’ve loved following this group of former military/black ops men and the women they love. Grier and Reid met in the previous installment, tangled in the same mission. They tangled in the sheets as well. Neither has forgotten their attraction to each other and when Reid finds that Grier, a US Marshall, has been kidnapped, he steps up to rescue her. Grier is tough as nails and when her captors plan to fight her in an illegal, underground boxing match, she doesn’t shy away. Her strength as a woman is part of Reid’s attraction to her. It’s soooo nice to see a kick ass heroine that’s not AT ALL TSTL.
The action is tight and fast paced, as we’ve come to expect from Stephanie Tyler. I was engrossed in it as much as the love story, which is not always the norm for me. Reid and Grier have an immediate attraction. No one has to be beaten over the head to realize it and their sex has intense chemistry…there’s light bondage scene…squee!!! Seriously, very hot. Loved that we got to visit New Orleans, meet a very intriguing tattoo artist, Gunner. There are lots of hints that the couples we’ve come to love over the last 4 novels are doing well. In that respect, it’s a satisfying conclusion to the series. On the other hand, we’re left with TWO cliffhangers in secondary characters: Grier’s US Marshall partner Jack and former outlaw, Keegan. I NEED to know what happens to these guys! I hope they make appearances in Tyler’s upcoming series, Section 8.

I’m well known to be a genre hopper, who has very few hard limits.My first real romance series was J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood and she still rocks my paranormal world, along with Karen Moning’s Fever series and Joey Hill’s Vampire Queen series.That being said, you’ll often see me reading erotic romance with a BDSM focus.I’m never afraid of dark and dubious reads a la Joey Hill, Tiffany Reisz and Cari Silverwood.When genre fatigue sets in, a witty historical romance never fails to satisfy me, and Lisa Kleypasand Sarah MacLeanare my auto-buys.My favorite series of all time is Diana Gabaldon’s Outlader saga, and I will fight for Jamie Fraser to the death ;). Much to my fellow romance readers’ surprise, I also cleanse my palate with popular contemporary reads.Romantic suspense.LGBT.Western.If the writing is on, I’ll dig in.
