After the Night Author:Linda Howard FAITH DEVLIN: A poor, outcast child in Prescott, Louisiana, she'd always adored the town's golden boy from afar. But he called her white trash that sultry Southern night when his rich, respected father disappeared, along with her pretty Mom. Now Faith wanted to hate Gray Rouillard... not to feel a powerful surge of desire. But she couldn... more »'t quench her passion, any more than she could hide the truth about the past she had waited so long to unravel.
GRAY ROUILLARD: Even when he raised hell, he did it with style. Reckless, charming, and backed by Rouillard money, Gray controlled the town of Prescott -- and Devlin was a name he never wanted to hear again. But when he gazed at Faith Devlin, all he saw was a swirl of tangled sheets and her silken flesh beneath him. To care for her was impossible, unthinkable... because Gray Rouillard planned to use all his power to ruin her.« less
After The Night is my favorite Howard book! It is actually the only book in my collection I refuse to part with.... okay I do have a couple more but ATN will never leave me! I may end up buried with it so I can enjoy in the after life to! lol I think this was my first Linda Howard book, it is an awsome first read and it keeps you wanting more! I have read most Howard books, I am in the process of rereading Dream Man, another Howard novel that I can't part ways with! check that one out to, you will be happy you did!
My major requirement in a romance book is that the book has to have a âdangerousâ male in it, one that is willing to do whatever it takes to get his woman, his way, etc. This book definitely meets that requirement. It sizzles and is on my keeper shelf.
This is the 4th book of Linda Howard's I have read. If you haven't read a book by her, boy are you missing out, she writes such strong characters. The minor problem that I had with the story was a little bit of the connection with the h/h. But what I do like about this is the âgirl goes back to home townâ story is a little different. Now, I had to read this book for a book that made me think of summer, and let me tell you there were some SCORCHING scenes involving the couple in the summer on the front porch, the courthouse bathroom, and oh the kitchen table. All in all, I enjoyed it, just missed a little bit on the connection, not enough to no read this book!â
This was a nice effort by Linda Howard. Still, she almost lost me with her long drawn out tale of the youthful characters before they matured for the "real" story. It is also maddening that the characters don't say things that should be said until its almost too late. That adds excitement and challenge, but not nearly as good as her Mackenzie stories.
