For Scorpion agents Day and Knight, their relationship is slow to develop, and trust is hard to build. Then Day’s brother, Stephen, goes missing, and Day finds out more about him than he ever dreamed. Day’s first reaction to Stephen’s disappearance is to try to get out to him as fast as possible. 
Knight initially holds him back so they can attempt to find out what they’re walking into. But when Knight sees Day’s desperation, he steps in to help and tries to calm the man he’s growing to care about, even though the trail is cold and clues are scarce. 
When Day witnesses his brother being shot live on television, he loses the last of his control. Despite the lack of answers, Day is more determined than ever to find out what happened. Stephen is all the family he has left. 
Bone-deep fear and adversity threaten to tear Day and Knight apart, but facing unimaginable hardship together might finally cement the bond between them.

Dawn and Dusk is probably my favorite Dirk Greyson book! Day and Knight are amazing characters full of life, with real passions, problems and emotions. They come off the pages and make me feel for them and with them as they struggle through their relationship trials as well as all hell breaking around them as usual. Dawn and Dusk I think can be read as a stand alone but to get the full scope and understanding of Day and Knight a reader should read the previous 2 books. They are definitely worth it. 

In this book we learn more about their relationship and so do they. Stephen, Day's brother is in trouble so the guys don't get to sit around. They find trouble without ever having to look for it. The plot in this book is excellent as is the descriptive writing. I felt a part of the book and lost myself in every scene. I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this book to any who love an amazing adventure with lots of suspense and hot passionate romance.

Then Knight’s shoulders slumped slightly and he rolled his eyes. “Aw hell.” Knight pulled out a chair and sat next to him.
“You can go if you’d like,” Day said.
“Fuck no. If I do, you’ll probably find something and be on the next plane to Phoenix. I need to make sure you keep your head on straight.”
Day wasn’t sure if he should be insulted or not, and after tensing, getting ready to take Knight’s head off, he recognized Knight might be worried about him and this was his clumsy way of expressing it. “Fine.”
He got logged in and searched his brother’s name, which showed him information he already knew.
“Try federal databases,” Knight suggested, and Day turned to him. “It’s worth a shot.”
“Why suggest that? Not that I won’t try, but it seems an odd suggestion.”
“It’s as good a place to start as any, and a lot of agencies keep a lot of information. As former NSA, you understand that. So see if there’s anything unusual.”
“I wish you had your computer. Then we could double-team this,” Day said and set up some searches, getting them running. Of course, they came up with nothing he didn’t already know.
“Try Arizona DMV,” Knight said.
“I will,” he retorted testily. “Just give me five minutes.” He was already frazzled, and Knight looking over his shoulder, backseat typing, was more than a little annoying.
“Is that the address you have?” Knight asked when he got his vehicle information, and Day nodded. “Search it on Google Earth. Let’s see what it looks like.”
“Is that really going to help? Or are you getting off track? Fine. He said he was looking to settle down, so he may be using that location for his mail. At one time he was living out of his motorhome, but it’s hard to keep track. I’ve been busy, and it seems he has as well.” Day got a look at the address and was surprised to see a nice, small house, beautifully kept, with an arid garden in the front and what looked like a touch of green, probably artificial grass, for the yard. Day was realizing there was quite a bit about his brother he didn’t know.
“Who owns the house?” Knight asked, and Day figured it was best to let him do the driving. Knight was thinking more clearly than he was.
“It appears to be owned by a Clark Miller,” Day said.
“Go back to the DMV database and see what else you can find at that address.” Knight stepped away as Day complied, pulled up the information, and then stopped dead in his tracks. “What is it?”
“Look,” Day said, pointing. “That’s my brother. It’s a different picture, and his hair is shorter, and Clark has glasses.” Day brought up both images and placed them side by side. “You’d think they were relatives rather than the same person, but it’s definitely him.”
“My God, why would your brother have two different identities?”
Dayton wished to hell he had the answer to that question.

Day and Knight are 2 of my favorite characters you have written because they feel so real and continue to feel real as you keep writing the series. Do you have a series/book or an author who makes you feel this way about the characters? Who is it and what series/book?

I really love the works of Ken Follett.  He usually writes in a grand scale with incredibly interesting characters.  The thing I like most about Ken’s books is that they are so sweeping in scale that we don’t find out the back story of the characters by hearing about it, we often live it and really grow to feel for what his characters are going through, sometimes just to survive.  It’s his work as well as that of Clive Cussler that I used as an inspiration for these characters and their adventures.  
I have always loved adventure stories that left me on the edge of my seat.  At one time I used to read them almost exclusively.  Now they must take their place alongside some incredibly intriguing romances.  ☺  However I do have to say that part of what I loved about these adventure books wasn’t just the adventure, but there was always a love interest and sometimes I’d get more wrapped up in the love story than I did anything else.
