5.0 out of 5 stars Seal Team Ten 9 Sep 2006
By M Boon
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a re-issue of an early book by Mrs Brockmann titled 'It came upon a midnight clear'. The story centre's on Billy 'Crash' Hawken and Nell Burns. This book is slightly different from most of it's predecessors as a lot of the story focuses on the events of the previous year. I found that this in no way distracted me from enjoying the book immensely. Nell and Crash's time together evolves around a bitter sweet sub plot involving Crash's cousin Daisy and her husband Admiral Jake Robinson. A large amount of the plot is nail biting stuff, which makes you want to race to the end, while making you wish their was an extra couple of hundred pages in between. A very enjoyable book from the Tall Dark and Dangerous series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another SEAL That Will Want For Your Own!! 10 April 2005
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Typical of Ms. Brockmann and her SEAL team stories this read previouse released as "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear" offers the reader a smart fast paced read with one yummy hero and one fiesty heroine that will keep the reader entertained right up to the final page.

Nell Burns is the personal assistant to Daisy Owens. Daisy is the cousin of William "Crash" Hawkins. Daisy has also found out that she has a brain tumor and will not survive. Nell goes to Crash to give him this bit of bad news. Hawkins can't believe that he's about to loose such an important person in his life. His life as a SEAL prevents him from getting involved with anyone. Problem is he was not counting on Nell. She speaks to him in a way that no woman ever has. But, he lets her walk away from him. Will he get a second chance with her?

Nell falls, and falls hard for Hawkins. After just one night with her prince she walks away after he makes it clear to her that things would never work between them. Problem with this is Nell's heart doesn't get the message. A year later when Crash is arrested for murder, Nell, knows that he is innocent. She risks her life to help him and in the process they are thrown together and feels can't be ignored...or can they?

Billy "Crash" Hawkins is one hero you will instanly fall in love with yourself. Nell is another Brockmann heroine that is just sassy and fiesty enough to handle her man. This was a fast paced read that will capture the readers attention. I love her SEAL series and this read was not exception.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast Paced Plot 14 April 2005
By TwilightRizin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is fast paced and the plot is tightly woven. The scenes are memorable and believable (I find that hard to concieve in some romance novels). So I rate this a high 5 and wish i could give it a 10 for page turning, keep you on your toes writting.

5.0 out of 5 stars This author delivers the bang for the buck! 19 April 2005
By Janet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This author delivers the bang for the buck! Unforgettable characters, keep reading through the night suspense.

Crash Hawken, government agent, becomes the prime suspect in the assassination attempt his commanding officer. He is charged with treason, conspiracy, and murder. The only friend he has left is Nell Burns, a woman who believes that a friend in need is a friend indeed. These two, who were once lovers, flee together in an effort to find the real killer and clear Crash's name.

Nell and Crash have a history -- as friends, as lovers. And she knows he could not have committed these crimes. Soon they are on the run, determined to uncover what really happened the night of the attempted assassination. But first they have to survive another day.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the TDD books 26 Nov 2004
By Sasha Blue - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you are even reading this review, you are probably a fellow Suzanne Brockmann fan. If not, buy this book and you will join the growing group of fans. Ms. Broackman's books always feel "real," no matter how far fetched the back of the book may make the plot seem.

This book was previously released as "Upon a Midnight Clear," and is my favorite of the TTD books, and probably my favorite romantic fiction book period.

One of the faults attributed to Ms. Brockmann is that her female characters are not as interesting or likeable as her male charaters. Ms. Brockmann herself has refered to this as the "too stupid to live" female lead problem. That is definately not the case with this book. Nell Burns is spunky and easy to root for.

Crash Hawken, the title character, is one of the best written characters that you will find in the genre. I love every scene told from his point of view, and love whenever he appears is later TDD books, as you learn from this book what is going on behind his quiet demeanor.

The sub-plot of this story is the lovely romance between Crash's surragete parents, his cousin Daisey and Jake Robinson (the lead charater of the Admiral's Bride). It is poingent, and makes you appreciate every day (and every sunset) you have with those you love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Early Brockmann--really picks up after slow start. 27 Jun 2005
By booksforabuck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
William 'Crash' Hawken doesn't make any promises. He meets a girl, treats her well, but lets her know that he'll only be in town for a few days. Because being a Navy Seal means he won't be in any one place for long. He can't even promise a woman his government will let her know if he's killed in the line of duty. Because duty, for a Navy Seal working covert operations, is very much a gray zone. That's why Hawken has ignored the obvious chemistry he has with Nell Burns. Nell is the kind of woman who could capture Hawken's heart--put both himself and herself at risk.

When Hawken is framed for the murder of his best friend, Admiral Jake Robinson, though, only Nell believes in him. The court is lined with his brothers-in-arms, all quick to believe the 'evidence' and unwilling to believe that Hawken could never have committed this crime.

Nell doesn't mind rocking boats and calling on old connections to make sure Hawken gets a fair investigation--even though he did stomp on her heart the one time they made love. What she doesn't know is that her involvement puts her at risk. Because whoever framed Hawken definitely doesn't want anyone taking a closer look.

Author Suzanne Brockmann has become one of today's top-selling authors with her Navy Seal-inspired heroes and the tough, smart women who tame them. HAWKEN'S HEART shows Brockmann in an early stage of her career. (HAWKEN'S HEART is a re-release of Silhouette Intimate Moments #896 from 1998 entitled IT CAME UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR). HAWKEN lacks the tight pacing of more recent Brockmann titles. I found the first half slow going as Hawken and Nell develop and then abandon a relationship. In the second half, Brockmann delivers her trademark mix of action, danger, patriotism, and emotion.

Bottom line, skim the first half, then hunker down and savor the second.
