Olympic downhill skier, Harper Young, knows what it’s like to look danger in the face. After all, she does it every time she races down a ski slope.

'Aiden dropped his finger to the trigger.'

Susan Sleeman, my go-to author for inspirational romantic suspense, has started a great new series with Night Fall. Nighthawk Security promises to be a super suspenseful series. Populated by the five Byrd brothers,, all former military or law enforcement, they have now formed a security investigative agency.

Sleeman is great at what she does and totally holds your interest all the way through, with surprises that will keep you guessing till the very end.

“She was dying, and it was his fault.”

Tight writing, fabulous pacing, and well-developed characters, all make Night Fall an intriguing romantic suspense. Harper Young faces life head on but when it comes to a stalker, she’s going to depend on Aiden Byrd and Nighthawk Security to keep her safe. I was on pins and needles several times while reading this book. Sleeman is a pro at weaving realistic suspense and the romance thread is just as heart thumping. I also appreciated a good level of wit
“She was dying, and it was his fault.”

With a first sentence like this, this story grabbed me from the start. 10 out of 10 for the author on the early twist. This was an exciting ride and I just adored the Byrd brothers who started their own protection agency. I just have a soft spot for a family series and finding a group of brothers a favourite due to their banter and need to be a hero mindset.

Granted, all five brothers who owned the agency had law enforcement experience, and two of the brother

I really liked this story so I'm not sure why it took me so long to get through it!

Night Fall is about the brothers of Sierra who works at Veritas Center (from another series by this author). The brothers are former military and law enforcement but want to work together as a protection team. Aiden, after giving a kidney to one of his family members, had to give up his career as a SEAL, but it turns out going private isn't all that safe either!

Their first job is to protect the Governor's daught

Eeep!!! A new series by one of my absolute favourite suspense authors!!!! And, wowsers, does Sleeman deliver in this enthralling, hair-raising and romantical first book in the Nighthawk Security series. There's so much to love that I'm a hyperventilating smitten mess so I'm just gonna lay it all out in point form for you.

Why this is my new favourite romantic suspense series:

There are FIVE Byrd brothers! (Excuse me while I breathe into a paper bag...I'm feeling a tad light-headed.) That's because

This is going to be another outstanding series!

Loved how edgy the characters are, they're just starting out in the security business and it shows.

Great storyline and had some unexpected twists in it, really enjoyed it!

WHOA! This story is fantastic!!! I’ve never read a novel by Susan Sleeman before; that is changing immediately. I enjoyed so much about Night Fall I don’t adequately know where to begin. First, the suspense is intense. I think around the 50-60% mark I looked at my husband and said, “I have no idea who the bad guy is!” I hate suspense/mystery novels that are easy to figure out. That is not the case with Night Fall. I was edge-of-my-seat the entire time and genuinely kept guessing right up to near ...more

What an impressive beginning to what promises to be a wonderful series! NightFall is the first book in the Nighthawk Security series. One that I have been waiting for a really long time! Nighthawk Security tells the stories about the five Bryd brothers who are related to Sierra Bryd from the Truth Seeker series. The last book moves from the brothers to Malone Reed who is Sierra’s love interest’s sister. The five brothers form a protection agency, and you get to see them get their own happy endi ...more

There are certain authors that I know will guarantee a reader a First Rate Romantic Suspense Novel and Susan Sleeman’s name will ALWAYS be in the Top Tier of that List! Her new series is called Nighthawk Security and if Book 1 NIGHT FALL is any indication, it is going to be even more spectacular than any of her other series! The thing I am most impressed with is how Sleeman has folded this Series’ characters right in with the characters from her Cold Harbor and Truth Seeker

Well-developed and intriguing “Night Fall” the first book in the “Nighthawk Security” series opens when Harper Young an Olympic downhill skier hires the Byrd brothers’ fledgling agency to protect her from a stalker who's growing bolder in his harassment of her. Doubly serious as her mother who’s running for re-election as governor is also receiving threatening letters, she depends on the brothers never expecting to have sparks ignite whenever she and Aiden, the managing partner of the team are c ...more

My review today is on the Romantic Suspense, Night Fall: Nighthawk Security. This is book one in the new series Nighthawk Security. I'm always excited when I receive one of Susan's books especially when it's the start of a new series. I don't know where she comes up with all her ideas. I really liked this one as we revisit the people of the last two series so it's kind of a continuation of the others but with new characters added. This story is well written, action packed, and fast moving. Fait ...more

So often we think we can do it all, be all, and everything will be fine. However, that may not be the best for everyone.
This is a lesson Aiden Bryd has to learn as he tries to lead his brothers and start this new business. Harper Young only wants to be safe and to be the top female skier in the country, but right now, her life is threatened. Can these two find the answers to both their problems before it’s too late?
Wow! Another fantastic start to a new series by Susan Sleeman!

It’s here! Susan Sleeman has an new series: Nighthawk Security. It follows the Byrd brothers, who we first met in Dead End, one of my favorite books from the previous Truth Seekers series. Ever since that book, I have been hoping we’d see more of them and not only did we, but the five brothers (and their sister’s sister-in-law) now have their own series!

Nighthawk Security begins with Aiden’s story in Night Fall. The brothers are hired as bodyguards for Olympic Skier and governor’s daughter, Harp

One of my favorite things is starting a series of books by Susan Sleeman! This one is going to be amazing! If you've read any recent Susan Sleeman series books, Nighthawk Security will seem familiar to you. You have been introduced to the Byrd brothers in previous books and I, for one, couldn't wait to delve into their personalities! Night Fall is about Aiden Byrd, the oldest of the Byrd brothers - former SEAL and ATF agent. He donated a kidney to his father recently so he needed to step back fr ...more

This is book one in the Nighthawk Security series. What a great place to start. I love the Byrd family and can not wait to read more from them. I love the writing style of Susan Sleeman. Her books are packed full of mystery, suspense, family, fun, a touch of romance and military, FBI, Police type books. I love how most her books are stand alone, yet each series is also building in relationships and that some books lead to more meaning and we continue to reconnect with characters from other books ...more

I know I’m in for a great read when I pick up a book by Susan Sleeman, and what a treat to have a whole new series to look forward to. Night Fall is the first book in the Night Hawk Security series, and it’s featuring Aiden Byrd, one of five brothers who have formed their own security team. While each of the brothers has his own set of skills, they all work together well and complement each other. Aiden is a wonderful hero—competent, strong, and protective.

Aiden Byrd and his four brothers have started up a new business. Nighthawk Security. After Aiden donated one of his kidneys to his dad, he had to slow his life down. He'd been a SEAL and then an ATF agent. They figured this would keep him safer. Only, as the oldest brother, he still took charge and was the first to rush into danger.

I LOVED this story! A family of brothers with a history in military and police service started a new detective agency, and their first client is an Olympic skier receiving serious threats. The evolving relationship between the 2 main characters was believable, and the relationship between the brothers with different personalities and work histories just added greatly to the storyline. I can't wait to read more about the other brothers. Their tight family relationship and wide variety of experien ...more

I have been a Susan Sleeman fan for a while now, especially the way she brings characters from previous series into the current one. Night Fall (yes, I’m behind but there’s just enough time in the day!), book one in the Nighthawk Security series follows that pattern.

The Byrd brothers have left their former careers in different areas of law enforcement to build their own security business. When they take on protection detail for an Olympian being stalked, there is an immediate attraction between

Nightfall, Book 1 in the Nighthawk Security series doesn’t disappoint. The author brings to life her characters in this series as she has in all past series, and even better, she brings back characters from the Blackwell Tactical and Veritas Agency, people I already love, as supporting characters. It’s one big happy family reunion. And we have five more books to get to know new characters (more brothers!) and continue to visit with those family members I already love. Besides the character devel ...more

Sweet story but...

Sweet story but too PG for me. I also didn't know this was a book with strong religious basis. I could have read reviews and found that out so that's my fault. But the characters also didn't work for me. I like my mc females with backbone and I like my "bad guys" or "villains " to be lawfully punished or at least verbally reprimanded or fined, not forgive right away because that's the "Christian" thing to do. Im Christian and would have at LEAST smacked someone. Lol i would rec

I love finding a book that grabs my attention from the opening page! This new series with the Byrd family promises to be as good as the two previous series, Cold Harbor and Truth Seekers, from Susan Sleeman, with intertwined characters. The Byrd brothers have formed a security company and are trying to get everything going professionally with the help of Veritas and Blackwell Tactical.

It was also very fun to read about the Veritas characters that I know and love from the Truth Seekers series. I can't wait to read about the other brothers in the Nighthawk Security Series.
