Overview

All medevac helicopter pilot Jett McNally wants to do is fly and forget about the horror and heartbreak she left behind in the Middle East, but anesthesiologist Tristan Holmes has other plans. When Jett comes home from the war and destruction in the Middle East, flying and the adrenaline rush of a crisis are the only things that make her happy, and she volunteers to fly night call where all the action is whenever she can. So maybe once in a while she takes a few chances. Hey, that's life, right? Dr. Tristan Holmes is an expert at two things—high-risk anesthesia and pleasing women. Tristan gave up expecting anything other than a good time from the women in her life long time ago, and casual relationships are the perfect prescription for stress release. She doesn’t do relationships, so she can’t quite understand why it bothers her when Jett makes it clear she doesn’t want one. High-stakes medical drama, life on the edge, and love in the fast lane—it's all just routine for Night Call.

    Predictable Radclyffe

    Night Call is another Radclyffe novel based on an area that is familiar to her as a retired doctor, the medical profession. It reprises some familiar characters while introducing new ones.

    Jett McNally is a helicopter pilot and a veteran of the Middle East war. She's having trouble getting over what she saw in combat, plus she's trying to mend from a broken love affair, so working the night call flying the medivac chopper at a local hospital suits her fine. Her social life is limited and so are her friendships, so she doesn't have to share anything about her past with anyone. She can live a shadow existence without attracting much attention, she thinks. Dr. Tristan Holmes is highly respected for her skills as an anesthesiologist and is well known for her "love them and leave them" lifestyle. She's not looking for a relationship, but can't help being fascinated about the enigmatic Jett when they start working together. In fact, Tristan can't seem to get Jett out of her mind. She becomes determined to discover what makes this woman tick and finds, to her surprise, that she might be interested in more than just adding another notch to her bedpost. Drs. Honor Blake and her partner Quinn Maguire, introduced in earlier books, are central figures in this story. They provide a picture of wedded bliss and family ties that encourages Tristan to keep pursuing Jett, no matter how distant she seems.

    Night Call is another romance written in the style that Radclyffe's fans have come to expect and enjoy. It tells a familiar story of two women who meet, overcome an obstacle and find each other, with some sex scenes to spice up the plot. There was real potential in this story for Jett McNally's situation to be explored. The role of US women in a combat zone is a new one with many complications of adjusting to those duties while not really being considered battle ground soldiers. This would have been a chance to examine the feelings of those women and the struggles they go through in a system that is confused about their status, but Radclyffe didn't choose to take that course except on a superficial level. The opportunity to tell a fresh and topical story was bypassed in favor of a more routine romance. That will certainly please the die hard fans, but the possibilities that are glimpsed in this book will make some readers wish Radclyffe had used her considerable talent as a writer to do something different.

    If the reader is looking for a predictable story that hits all of the expected buttons, then Night Call fits the requirements. It's easy escapism for a few hours of entertainment.

    ANOTHER HIT!

    Radclydffe has AGAIN written a book that I find hard to put down, she is by far my FAVORITE author. This book is exciting, sexy and the characters are so well described (as always) that I can actually picture them as I read. Radclyffe is SO good that I read her books too fast and have to wait until the next one comes out, these books are addicting - I just re read my other Radclyffe books to keep me busy until the new ones come out!

    Highly Recommend!

    I'm a huge Radclyffe fan alright, but this book is one of my all time favorites. In fact, it IS my all time favorite from Radclyffe. The relationship between Tristan and Jett is absolutely amazing. I love the two of them together. If you have the chance, read this. I know you will love it.
