Dear Listener:

Of all of my novels, After the Night remains one of my personal favorites – and Faith Devlin and Gray Rouillard are two of my favorite characters. Faith is strong, proud, and fearless, and Gray – well, he’s just downright sexy. Faith’s search for the truth about the devastating scandal surrounding her mother and Gray’s father blazes with intrigue. Add some sultry Southern hear, and you’ve got a real scorcher of a listen.

I hope you enjoy After the Night.

Sincerely,

Linda Howard

    "Can I give 6 stars?"

    This was a great "oldie but goody" from Linda Howard. The character development is great, the storyline interesting and compelling, and the male lead is off-the-charts sexy! I also loved the female lead for her determination not to let her family's dysfunction define her. This story is hot, funny and utterly absorbing. Oh, and the narration was top-notch.

    Great way to spend a credit!

    "Finally!!!"

    I agree with the review below - classic Linda Howard and one of my favorites. I was very excited to see this one available since I have been looking and waiting for this one to become available on audible. I'm still waiting for 'A Game Of Chance' & 'Mr. Perfect' then I will be complete. lol. The narration was excellent, I'll be looking for more from both Linda Howard and Natalie Ross.

    "I don't get it..."

    I've enjoyed many of Linda Howard's books - but not this one. If you like books that feature women who decide they are "in love" with men who
    treat them badly - then this is for you.

    Even though Gray was fully aware that Faith was completely innocent of her family's bad behavior, he was abusive to her throughout the majority of the book(called her trash, tried to drive her out of town, manipulated the rest of the town to snub her and refuse her service). His rationale for treating her badly is that he wanted to protect his mentally ill mother and sister - so at best, this makes him a lame mama's boy. Of course, Gray wanted to sleep with Faith even when he was trying to drive her out of town - and he expected her to be "on board" for that.

    Faith, on the other hand, had many redeaming qualities, but the fact that she decided that she was in love with Gray, regardless of the fact that he NEVER treated her well - made it impossible for me to have any respect for her. As far as I can tell, as a child, Faith decided she loved Gray because of his looks - I can accept that since she was a kid. What I can't understand is why a full grown woman would be "in love" with a man who, for no rational reason, has always treated her badly.

    I know my opinion strays from the rest of the reviewers - but I found this book painful to listen to.

    "Great book"

    I know why this was one of Linda Howard's favorites it is one of mine too. The story sucks you in and doesn't let go until the end. I would listen in the car, walking, any moment I could because I just couldn't put it down. The chemistry between the two main characters is very well written. Great steamy romance with a interesting ending. Still not sure how I feel about the Monica and Alex issue - a little creepy for me but Gray and Faith are great. Worth a credit!

    "I listen to this book over and over."

    It is the southern setting or the characters or the plot or all of the above but I listen to this book whenever I want to relax. It is one of my favorites. Some parts are a bit earthy but I think it adds to the flavor. The characters are so complex and sympathetic. It is like Sandra Brown's Envy or Ain't She Sweet by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. A good mix of pleasure and pain. I read all kinds of books but this book hits me where I live.

    "One of The Best!!"

    One of the best stories I have read/listened to in a long time. Faith was one of the bravest, most intuitive heroines I have read about in quite some time. Gray was a perfect match for her. The portrayal of a small towns bigotry was spot on, and how one man could exert so much influence to affect people's behavior was totally believeable.

    Natalie Ross is one of my favorite readers. She made this story very, very enjoyable. Whenever she and Phil Gigante do narrations I always put those books in my wish list.

    This book is worth a credit and I will be listening to it again. It has become one of my favorites.

    "Bravo !!!!"

    Ditto and ditto!! I thoroughly agree with the previous two reviewers. This was the first Linda Howard book that I ever read and I anxiously anticipated having the opportunity to hear it on audio. Her ability to write page-turning suspense and passion is unbeatable, particularly when narrated by Natalie Ross.
    The story-line of Faith, who grew up dirt poor with an alcoholic father and adulterous mother, was inspiring as you watch her become a successful young woman. The romance between Faith and Gray, the hunky scion of a wealthy family, was perfect. Great book and well done audio.

    "OHHHH WOWWWWWW"

    This is the sexiest, hottest book I've listened to in a long time. I keep looking around for my pirate! But, alas, I live alone.

    Grey was soooo knowledgeable in so many areas, especially cleaning up messes and massages. Faith is another strong heroine like Daisy from Open Season. That was my first intro to Linda Howard, then I went to Cover of Night and haven't stopped yet, but didn't know about this one.

    Wow. A wonderful surprise, wonderful treat, great listen, a well used credit and Natalie Ross was the deliverer. A definite replay....over and over again.

    Story
    "Intense and Well-done!"

    I enjoyed this story and found it quite addicting during my listen. It was intense, hot, emotional, and well-written. The characters were very compelling. I liked Faith, and even Grey while yes, he was intense and had moments of being very over the top and mean. For me, the author did a good job of establishing the reason why. I still found it compelling and did not find it offensive or unacceptable when in the context of fiction. Faith cared for her younger brother who had Down's Syndrome, and I don't feel that this was written insensitively. The offenses against this young boy were by his neglectful parents, and by Gray by evicting him from his home along with the entire family. To me, the writing did not try to pretend or convince the reader that this was okay. I enjoyed the relationship that developed between Faith and Grey, the way the passion between them grew into much deeper feelings that they were conflicted about...they both wanted to "dive right into" and had a hard time reconciling the connection between them at the same time. Natalie Ross' narration was excellent and well-done.
