Publisher's Summary

In the charming rural town of Trail Stop, Idaho, accessible to the outside world by only a single road, young widow Cate Nightingale lives peacefully with her four-year-old twin boys, running a bed-and-breakfast. Though the overnight guests are few and far between - occasional hunters and lake fishermen - Cate always manages to make ends meet with the help of the local jack-of-all-trades, Calvin Harris, who can handle everything from carpentry to plumbing. But Calvin is not what he seems, and Cate's luck is about to run out.

One morning, the B&B's only guest inexplicably vanishes, leaving behind his personal effects. A few days later, Cate is shocked when armed men storm the house, demanding the mystery man's belongings. Fearing for her children's lives, Cate agrees to cooperate - until Calvin saves the day, forcing the intruders to scatter into the surrounding woods.

The nightmare, however, is just beginning. Cate, Calvin, and their entire community find themselves cut off and alone with no means to call for help as the threat gathers intensity and first blood is drawn.

With their fellow residents trapped and the entire town held hostage, Cate and Calvin have no choice but to take the fight to their enemies under the cover of night. While reticent Cal becomes a fearless protector, Cate makes the most daring move of her life...into the very heart of danger.

A surprise

The mini-background does not give the book justice. I really liked the story and have listened to it twice and purchased more of Linda Howard.

Howards most laid back Hero~ I like it~ 4 STARS

Widow Cate has twin boys to raise in Trail Stop. When Handyman Calvin stops 2 men from holding her at gun point we soon know some one is out to GET Cate. When a Guest at Cate's B&B disappears along with the mysterious FLASHDRIVE he carries along with him. Cate and the entire town of Trailstop are soon under siege with a para miliary gang who want the flash drive at all costs. This is a fun. Cate is clueless that handiman Calvin one of the most laid back of all Howards stud hunks is hopeless in love with her, and he is barely on any ones radar. When he drops 2 men with guns to save Cate we learn the quiet guy is ex military. The shy handiman turn hero is very good in this one. I give this 4 STARS for first rate story and characters and very good reader~ and one of the more interesting characters Calvin who shows us sometimes the quiet ones are the most fun.

good times.

I loved this story. It was mostly intense-- a little slow at first, but that was just character development, anyway. I liked the characters, I liked the POV, and I liked the pacing of the story. I liked the two readers . . . their voices were easy to listen to, and it made for a fun read.

Sweet Romance with likeable characters

I liked the people in this small mountain town. The twin boys are cute and funny. The widow mom is sweet and appealing. The hero, former soldier and handyman is strong and romantic. The Retired Major and former nun are two wonderful additions to the storyline and their romance as satisfying as the widow and handyman. There is much tension when town and widow is threatened by a group of villains and saved by the hero.

Cover of the Night

Huge Linda Howard fan for years. Think I've read everyone of her novels. Wasn't too impressed with this one. Thought the story was good, characters interesting, but started losing interest 1/2 way through. The "bad guys" were almost laughable at their ineptness and then the story became pretty predictable. Not one of her best.

Love Linda Howard

But I really didn't like this title as much on audio as I did in paperback. Joyce Bean and Dick Hill are fabulous, and I have loved their reads of other Howard novels. I think that this book isn't as strong, and reading it aloud is a good way to point up weaknesses.

Great audio performances

The story is a bit improbable, and there is a bit of prosaic narrative, but the story is still fun with interesting characters and wonderful narration.
