Product Description

A taut debut novel about a wounded soldier, a courageous doctor, and a dog in desperate need of a rescue

Soldier, surgeon, traitor, dog…

When Sergeant Nate Calloway is carried into the field hospital with no memory of how he got there or where the other members of his unit are,  Australian army surgeon, Captain Beth Harper cares only about repairing his broken body. But it’s clear that something went terribly wrong on the other side of the wire, and as Nate slowly recovers, he becomes more and more anxious to return to duty, go back into the field, and rescue his friends, his unit, and the bomb detection dog that he loves.

The only way Nate can be released to active duty is if a doctor agrees to accompany him, and Beth surprises everyone by volunteering. Her role is to monitor Nate and take him right back to hospital the instant that his health deteriorates enough to put their rescue operation at risk. But as she stays close, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to his courage, his determination, and his commitment to his fellow soldiers.

Instead of a straightforward recovery, however, Nate and Beth soon realise they’ve stumbled on a tangled web of deceit and danger, and the enemy is no longer outside the wire. He is one of their own, a traitor, and he has them in his scope.

'A great read i really enjoyed this book and just loved Nate and Beth they were great characters this is a super book with a great storyline it is the first I have read by this author but won't be the last would recommend.' —Sarah Clay, NetGalley

'Great Book!! Military novel based in what we have come to know as the sandbox and the brave Australian servicemen and the medical support staff working there. The betrayal is unique here as it doesn't come from simple greed but obsession and addiction. The romance between Beth and Nate is a tightrope of their different rank, their pasts and more than a bit of hardheadedness. Nate is a hunky strong alpha determined to rescue his men and service dog. Beth is his strong counterpart and the doctor that saved his life. The characters were unwavering and brave in a nightmarish situation, yet not over the top: very believable. No cliffhanger and a HEA this was a good read and I would happily recommend it.' —Eli Falcon, NetGalley

'Situation Critical is a fast paced, action packed, military suspense with a touch of romance. This page turner will keep you on edge till the very end.' —Dawn Bryant, NetGalley

'MS Knight has nailed this story. I fell into this one from the first page and didn’t want to put it down… A fabulous debut.' —Helen Sibbritt, NetGalley

'I love a good romantic suspense novel and this certainly ticked all the boxes… I think the author did a stellar job for her debut novel and I will certainly look for others.' —Marlene Pratt, NetGalley

'This book is a quick read, one that any fans of suspenseful action, with a romantic twist would enjoy. I definitely did.' —Claudia Blanton, NetGalley

My daughter asked me to download on Kindle once it was released.
A little slow at first on the romance....Beth was obviously attracted to Nate from their first unfortunate encounter.
Nate a little volatile considering what he was going through....but the spark was there.
Not a great love story!
Enjoyed reading this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fabulous story 21 April 2017
By Mrs. Helen Sibbritt - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
MS Knight has nailed this story, her debut and it’s a beauty, fast paced great setting military hero and a strong and caring Doctor heroine. I fell into this one from the first page and didn’t want to put it down, there are so many emotions they will make you cry and smile so make yourself comfortable and sit back and enjoy.

Dr Beth Harper has lost her fiancé and is determined to carry on and do what has to be done for the heroes in Afghanistan, but when a very badly injured solder is bought in with little to no information Beth is drawn to him in so many ways she knows already that Sergeant Nate Calloway is strong and determined as he ensures however he can that he gets back out there to find his missing men and his beloved dog, so Beth goes with him to ensure he survives and this start a journey that has many ups and downs and lots of danger.

Nate Calloway has little memory of what has happened to him his men and his dog but he knows he must get back out there and find them and also find out what happened, he is drawn to this strong beautiful Doctor who has done so much for him but he does everything he can to try and stop her from coming he must keep her safe at all costs. Nate has a bad feeling about this rescue mission there seems to be a lot going on.

Truly the characters good and bad, terribly bad people in high places in this one come to life on the pages there are traitors deceit and so much danger the risk of Nate and Beth not making it is strong so they give into their feelings for one very sensual night and then all just about blows up. I can’t highly recommend this one enough I loved Nate what a hero and Beth just beautifully strong oh and the ending gorgeous, do make sure you have some tissues handy though you are going to need them way to go MS Knight a fabulous debut.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great plot! 5 April 2017
By Brenda Telford - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Australian army surgeon, Captain Beth Harper was glad the stressful and lengthy surgery on the badly injured soldier had been successful – she was waiting for him to regain consciousness to try to find out who he was. With no dog tags or anything else to identify him, she and her team were hoping he would be able to tell them soon. But the disturbance in the recovery ward had her hurrying to his side – his volatile return to consciousness was a shock but her nurses managed to keep him controlled.

Learning his name was Sergeant Nate Calloway was all Beth discovered, because he couldn’t remember how he got to the hospital; what happened to him or why. He desperately wanted to return to his unit though, plus his bomb detection dog, Finnegan without delay. And he was prepared to do anything he could to make that happen – even though his injuries were severe and he couldn’t be moved anytime in the near future.

As Beth headed into the dangerous and unknown to accompany Nate and other soldiers on a search and rescue mission, she had no idea the danger they were about to face. Only there as Nate’s medical professional, which was the condition he was allowed to leave the hospital, nevertheless Beth was prepared. But the danger surrounded them – insurgents – and traitors – among them. What would be the outcome in a situation which was extremely critical? And would Beth ever see her family back home in Australia again?

Situation Critical is the debut novel by Aussie author Amanda Knight and is set in the hot and desolate war zones of Afghanistan. I felt a little let down though, as there was no intrigue or mystery about the bad guy/s – it was all given to the reader in full detail, quite early in the piece. I’m not sure why the author felt the need to “tell all” when she did, but that aside, the plot is a good one. Finnegan, the bomb detection dog, is gorgeous, though he doesn’t feature a lot. A romantic suspense novel, Situation Critical is worth recommending.

With it's complex plot, intriguing characters, secrets, lies, betrayal, treachery, treason, murder, and surprise twists, this page turner will keep you on edge till the very end.

This is a great suspense about members of the Australian military fighting in Afghanistan. What happens when there are turncoats in the midst, and they're not sure who they can trust? Driven by greed, desire, addiction, and blackmail, the turncoat's are determined to win by whatever means necessary. Now they're up against some of their militaries most elite, who will come out on top? You'll have to read it to find out! 

I would definitely recommend this book and author.
