"A fervid romantic suspense"
Edison Lone, DC's best code breaker, wonders if he
should talk to the Center for International Information
Control though he lacks evidence. Edison knows that
someone is leaking sensitive information from the Internal
Bureau of Information (IBI). However, he is set up to
think it is IBI assistant Selena Silverwood, whose diary
contains heated fantasies he believes hide a code that to
his chagrin he cannot break.
The reason he cannot break her code is that there are
no secret messages to decipher. Instead Selena is writing
a novel using the office computer. Edison, who is already
falling in love with her based on her passionate secrets,
courts her to obtain her code. As Selena and Edison begin
to forge a permanent relationship, there remain those
individuals illegally releasing information and whose
preference is to eliminate Edison anyway possible so they
can freely leave the country when the time is right.
NIGHT PLEASURES is an enticing romantic suspense loaded
with action but emphasizes the sexual tension between the
lead characters that heat up the novel's pages. Edison and
Selena are an ardent duet whose fervent desires burn
through the plot of going undercover to find the
information leak. The audience might question Edison's
skills that he misreads Selena so badly in spite of the
mole that sends him down the wrong path. Readers still
will find NIGHT PLEASURES lives up to its title as Jule
McBride purveys a fervid romantic suspense.
