It’s Christmastime in Boston, and this year the silver bells will be wedding bells as FBI agent Jules Cassidy ties the knot with the man of his dreams, Hollywood heartthrob Robin Chadwick.

The pair plan a quiet, intimate ceremony, to be witnessed by family and close friends from the FBI, SEAL Team Sixteen, and Troubleshooters, Incorporated, including Sam Starrett and Alyssa Locke. But the holiday season brings more to the happy couple than they expect.

A waterfall coming through their kitchen ceiling, a bat colony in the attic, old family tensions . . . even an international incident can’t dampen their spirits. But add to that a parade of unexpected guests, including a reporter looking for a scoop, an ex-lover hell-bent on causing trouble, and a dangerous stalker, and suddenly the wedding is poised to unravel in chaos.

But nothing will stop Jules and Robin from getting their happy ending, because along with a guest list featuring the most elite counterterrorism force in the world, they have their own secret weapon–true love.

Publishers Weekly

Brockmann's 12th Troubleshooter thriller (after Force of Nature) opens with gay FBI agent Jules Cassidy's marriage proposal to gorgeous A-List movie star Robin Chadwick (recently out of the closet and out of rehab). The two men's Boston wedding shower is crashed by Globereporter Will Schroeder, and the tape of Will's revealing interview with Robin ends up on the Net. Jules's angry friends from high-tech private security firm Troubleshooter Inc. move to shut him down. With the wedding set for December 15, Jules is sent to Kandahar (ruining Thanksgiving), and an insane celebrity stalker believes Jules, Robin and their mutual ex, Adam, are robots who need to be eliminated. A winning, innovative runup to Christmas from bestselling Brockmann. (Oct.)

Library Journal

When gay Troubleshooter Jules Cassidy and his partner, actor Robin Chadwick, decide to tie the knot, a quiet holiday gathering of friends and family is all they have in mind. Then a reporter crashes their engagement party; the president of the United States decides to attend the wedding; and a demented stalker, a jealous former lover, and a host of complications, both natural and human-made, threaten to keep things from going as planned. The action is more subdued than in many of Brockmann's titles, as romance takes center stage. A prickly relationship between the reporter and Jules and Robin's personal assistant blossoms into love, and of course the sweet, honest affection between Jules and Robin is all anyone could want. This heartwarming story is one fans are sure to enjoy. Brockmann (Force of Nature), noted for her gritty, action-filled Navy SEAL adventures, lives near Boston.

The Proposal
Friday, September 14
Boston, Massachusetts

Jules Cassidy was nervous.

After years of working for the FBI, nervous didn't happen to Jules very often anymore. At least not in a situation with nary a hostile gunman, armed terrorist, angry insurgent or crazed hostage-taker in sight.

As Jules effortlessly caught a taxi at Boston's Logan Airport, as he settled back in his seat for the stunningly traffic-free ride to the downtown hotel, as the relentless, week-long autumn drizzle that had plagued the entire east coast from Virginia to Maine finally stopped and the clouds opened in a late afternoon blast of sunlight suitable for accompaniment by a full choir of angels, he had to smile.

His entire impromptu trip north from Washington , D.C. had been a piece of cake – chocolate and practically dripping with strawberry-flavored easy.

Sign from God, anyone?

And yet, Jules was still undeniably nervous.

Some of it was from the taco Jules had grabbed in the airport. God, what a mistake. He'd thrown it away after eating only a few bites, but the portion he'd consumed had become his traveling companion – a lump of lead in his stomach.

Of course, some of what he was feeling came from the adrenaline surge of anticipation at the thought of seeing Robin after too many days apart.

Hey, babe. It's me again. God, I miss you. Call me back. And oh, may I state for the record that this phone sex thing is no longer novel...?

No kidding.

These past two weeks had been the longest the two men had gone without seeing one another since former A-list movie star Robin Chadwick had gotten out of rehab.

And no, Jules's nerves weren't from worry or fear that Robin had fallen off the wagon. Robin's commitment to his on-going sobriety was steadfast. Same as his commitment to their still fledgling yet extremely solid romantic relationship.

Yeah, and okay, there was that shifting-of-the-taco twinge of nervousness again. What if Jules was wrong, and it was too soon for this? What if Robin wasn't ready?

What if Jules's last minute, cancel-all-his-meetings-and-take-Friday-off, spur of the moment, rush-up-to-Boston-uninvited trip came across as needy and possessive? Desperately needy and possessive.

God, he wished there was a thought-vacuum that could suck the unwanted yet still persistently loud voices of cheating ex-lovers from the caverns of one's mind. It had been years since Jules had shared both his home and his life with his ex, Adam, and yet he could still hear the son of a bitch's voice. You don't own me, J., although you'd like to, wouldn't you? You'd like to lock me away...

In truth, Jules hadn't wanted to own Adam or lock him anywhere. But he definitely hadn't wanted to share him, either. And if that unwillingness to share was defined as being needy and possessive, so be it.

It was the desperation that he hoped he could hide today – assuming Adam had been right and Jules was, in fact, desperately needy and possessive. Desperation was unattractive – so cloying, so unpleasantly pathetic. So obvious. You could smell it on a man in about a half-second of face-to-face.

Jules did a quick sniff check of his armpits. But all he could smell was that hideous taco. He definitely had a fantasy going involving a shower in his immediate future. Like, fifteen minutes after he got to the hotel. He'd change out of his FBI costume – as Robin called his collection of conservative dark suits and ties – and into jeans and a t-shirt. And there he'd be when Robin returned from the set. In bare feet and home-from-the-office hair, coated in exactly zero desperation.

It helped to remember that Robin wasn't Adam. Thank you, baby Jesus. Robin truly loved him – quite possibly as much as Jules loved Robin.

"Hey, babe, I got big news." Robin had left Jules a longer message in lieu of his standard brief morning I'm thinking of you voicemail. "Good news. Great news, actually." His expressive voice was laced with even more excitement than usual. Robin's mundane, day-to-day existence registered at a passion level of about fifteen on a scale from one to ten. This morning, however, he'd been up well past twenty and that had made Jules smile. "Art's writing another story arc for my character – they want me back. At least ten episodes this time, maybe even more. They totally love what I've been doing."

Yeah, like the entire world hadn't noticed that Academy Award nominee Robin Chadwick was not just acting rings around his cast mates in Boston Marathon, but was bringing them and the entire HBO TV show up to an entirely new level. Damn straight writer/producer Arthur Urban wanted him back for more. And yet Robin's surprise was genuine. He honestly didn't realize how amazing he was.

Robin had been bouncing back and forth between DC, where Jules worked, and Boston , where the HBO series was in production. It had started as several intensive days of work a few months ago, when Robin was first cast in a relatively small role -- a minor character for a mere two episodes. But Art Urban knew greatness when he bumped into it on his set, and he'd expanded and stretched out Robin's role over another six episodes.

It was doubly gratifying, because the character Robin was playing, Jefferson O'Reilly, was straight. It was pretty stupid, but gay actors in Hollywood rarely were cast as anything other than gay characters.

This job did, however, mean that Robin was spending more and more time in Boston . Apart from Jules.

"Don asked for way more money," Robin's voicemail had continued, "and they agreed. They didn't even fucking blink. They want to put me in the credits, which is, well... It's nice. I feel very Sally Field, you know?"

Jules did know. They liked him. They really liked him. And Don, Robin's agent, no doubt liked him, too. And for more than just the bigger paycheck. Robin's sister Jane was a Hollywood insider, and the last time Jules had spoken to her on the phone, she'd told him that Robin was garnering some early Emmy buzz.

"I haven't said yes," Robin had reported in his message. "I wanted... Well, I wanted to, you know, talk to you about it first, because... shit, it's Boston . If it was DC, I'd've already signed, but..." He'd gotten quiet. "I really miss you, Jules. Call me back, okay? I need to hear your voice."

Jules had called him back. Repeatedly. But every time Jules had been free, Robin's phone had been turned off. And vice versa. They'd phone-tagged seven times before Jules had cancelled his lunch, his two o'clock, his four-thirty and his six-fifteen and hopped the shuttle to Boston .

He checked his phone in the cab, only to find he'd missed three more calls from Robin. He dialed, but was bumped right to Robin's voicemail as the taxi driver took the exit from the highway.

It was then that his phone rang.

But it wasn't Robin. The call was from Alyssa Locke who, along with her former-SEAL husband Sam Starrett, were Jules's best friends.

"Are you there yet?" Alyssa asked. She knew he was heading to Boston . She also knew his evening's agenda. God help him.

"I'm at the traffic light at Arlington and St. James," Jules reported. "It's just a few more blocks to the hotel."

"You're not going to believe where I am." His former partner in the FBI was now the XO – second-in-command -- of Troubleshooters Incorporated, the most prestigious personal security firm in the United States . Alyssa could well be anywhere in the entire world. Or quite possibly orbiting the moon.

"Can you give me a clue?" Jules shifted to try to find a position where the taco didn't burn at his stomach lining quite so much. "Like, which time zone?"

"Same as you," she said.

"You're in the trunk of the cab that I'm sitting in," he guessed as he popped a few more antacids from the roll he'd picked up on his way out of Logan . "Which would put Sam in the glove compartment."

Her laughter was rich and musical. "No, but you're close. We're over at the Sheraton, on Boylston Street ."

No way....

    I highly recommend this book if you love Jules and Robin.

    I love reading any of the books that have Jules as one of the characters. He is one of my favorite characters in the Troubleshooters series and I would love to read more with him in it.

    A quick read

    I enjoyed seeing so many of the Troubleshooters characters together in this book, but there wasn't much plot or excitement. It was a good love story, but in this book, Robin and Jules have absolutely no sense of decorum or social etiquette. Jules has always been such a great character, but this book didn't show his fun, quirky personality at all. However, in the end I found myself very happy to see Jules and Robin's contentment and peace. I enjoyed Dolphina & Will's side story.

    Funny, romantic-but-not-sick-inducing, well-written, page-turner with a series of interesting sub-plots and wonderful characters - Robin and Jules are just the most engaging protagonists of Suzanne Brockman's novels!

    Loved it, immediately re-read it, and have read it in parts about six times in the 3 months I've had it... Totally my idea of fun, it may or may not be yours, but I highly recommend you check it out for yourself...

    It was good

    I liked the book, but it was much more romance than the other troubleshooters. Those are more thriller with a little romance thrown in. This was a romance with a little thriller thrown in. I liked it because I like and know the characters, because I like and know the stories. But if I had read this first I wouldn't have read the others, just too much romance for me. Start with Troubleshooters #1 and get to know everyone first. :)

    need to be open minded.

    I am glad jules and Robin got together. It is not a love story for everyone due to the homosexual content, but it is well written and tasteful. I would read it again. I wiill read the entire series again.

    Brockmann fan

    All Through the Night is like getting back together with some old friends - she brings readers up to date on several of the Troubleshooters characters who have had small or no roles in recent books. Her books are always entertaining, full of twists and satisfying for the romantic at heart. Can't wait for the next one!

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT is, by far, my all-time favorite book in the SEAL Team Sixteen/Troubleshooters, Inc. series!<BR/><BR/>I've loved Jules Cassidy ever since he was first introduced in THE DEFIANT HERO, and I'm so, so glad that Suzanne Brockmann gave him the happy ending that he deserves. <BR/><BR/>Although I had doubts about Robin Chadwick when he first appeared a few books ago, I have to say that the love these two men share for each other is such a wondrous, joyous thing that I can no longer complain.<BR/><BR/>If you love this series, and especially if you love Jules Cassidy, you don't want to wait -- pick up this book today.

    A Gay Romance Novel?

    Yes, well, this one is a fun soap opera, along the lines of the Front Runner, and also written by a woman. It's the first novel about a gay marriage, and it is a good read, or so I thought. Since Brockman wins awards for her straight romance novel, it is no surprise that she wrote this one well, especially given that her son is gay and that she has long been an advocate of gay marriage. All profits from the book go to MassEquality, an organization dedicated to preserving gay marriage in Massachusetts. The characters are an FBI agent and a televison actor, both impossibly handsome, and throughout the book involved in emotionally wrenching subplots. These characters have appeared in some of her previous novels, but this is her first all-out hero and hero story.

    Great Story and Excellent Voice

    Michael Holland did a great job in providing the voices for all of the characters in Suzanne Brockmann's world. The book was too short. The story line may be controversial and you may want to read reviews from Force of Nature and the book All Through the Night to decide whether you are interested, but Michael did a fantastic job.

    Kept me up ALL night!

    If you have even the slightest problem with homosexual characters, then turn away. Personally I found the romance between Robin and Jules to be very sweet, though a little rocky at times. This is my first Suzanne Brockmann book, and I've never read anything like this before! Every time a new twist came into the story it had me on the edge of my seat, wanting to read more and more until my eyes dried out from lack of blinking! It wasn't just romance- it was combined wonderfully with action and suspense! For me, she could have gotten into more detail about the intimate moments with Jules and Robin. It would have made no difference. I simply loved everything about it.

    Not my cup of tea

    I have read all of Suzanne Brockmann's books and have enjoyed them, but I set this one aside after a few chapters and will not finish it. When all is said and done, Brockmann is a romance writer [go to the local book store and see where her books are] and the central characters in this romance novel are two gay men. I simply do not care to read romance novels about gay men. I will continue to read the author in the future when she will, hopefully, return to male/female relationships that I can relate to.

    A reviewer

    I thought this book was fabulous (maybe a tad rushed but fabulous). I adore Jules and Robin and applaud Suzanne for making such a non-sterotypical gay couple. I think she is doing wonders for people's views of homosexuals. And I hope she continues doing so. However I would love some rad sex scenes. You're giving the straight couples some pretty steamy scenes but what about our Jules and Robin? Some people may not be able to handle it and deem it too intimate but honestly, we saw the 'nasty' things our other favorite couples got up to behind closed doors, why not Jules and Robin? Anyway I think this book gives a great look into the two lives of everday normal couple who happen to be gay. Lacks the usual steamy sex scenes but I think the point of the story was to understand the love and romance of the couple itself.

    I can't get enough of this authors characters and creative writing style. the way she weaves such caring romances where you feel these characters are so vividly written they must be real. I thought Jules story might be over with the last book that came out and i thought this book no matter how much i like this auther might be just a quick write to grab holiday money.. It wasn't!! fab read and I even bought it in hard cover which i never do. you won't be sorry if you pick up this book!

    I LOVED this book! Jules and Robin's book was one of the best, if not THE best in this series. They sure went through a lot to be together, but boy was it worth it to be able to read this wonderful, romantic story. I dont remember the last time I read a novel where I beleived 2 people loved each other as much. There was no doubt in my mind these 2 were it. I can't wait for the next in the series to see them 'settled' in to married life. And it was great catching up with the people from the previous books. As usual Sam almost stole every scene he was in. LOVED IT, LOVED IT, LOVED IT!
