Publisher's Summary

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

    Story
    "How sad"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The book is meant for the romance reader only. Mindless sexual tension seemed to be the only theme


    What was most disappointing about Linda Howard’s story?

    There was no story. I started out loving the characters and their development. After the first hour or so of listsning it went nowhere except...the bedroom, the porch, the pier, the boathouse, the new house, the summer house, a street corner, and anywhere else imaginable for a sexual encounter. There was so much potential to the story and to me it felt squandered


    Any additional comments?

    I have over 300 books in my library. I am always looking for new authors. I tried this and another Lisa Howard book because I liked some of the reviews and had not read any of her books yet. If you like mindless sex encounters these would probably be right up your alley. As for me I like a quality story that includes the sexual issues where appropriate and within reason. I am done with Linda Howard I guess.

    Story
    "I agree with the 6 stars!!"
    What did you love best about After the Night?

    A book I couldn't put down. Of course since I am in Houston, the fact that the setting is in and around here was nice. I just loved the fact that Faith made something of herself and was smart enough to know what to do to protect herself and her assets.


    What other book might you compare After the Night to and why?

    This is my second Linda Howard and it won't be my last.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Love the joking at the end, I have even shared it with friends.

    "This book was totally Hot!-Get this book"

    This book was totally hot! I see why Gray is one of the author’s favorite characters. I will never think of a bathroom in the court house or a message the same way again with out blushing. Natalie Ross also did an excellent job as the narrator.

    "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.

    Story
    "Wonderful story. A good mystery. A killer."

    Great romantic tension.

    Faith is a young girl, whose father and older brothers are drunks and trouble makers. Her mother has a loose reputation and is mistress to a wealthy man. Faith’s family is run out of town. Faith is humiliated, ends up in a foster home, studies hard, makes something of herself, and returns to Prescott. Gray is the rich man's son who is drawn to Faith yet hates her because of her mother's affair with his father. When Faith returns to town, Gray and others want her to leave and make her life difficult.

    I loved Faith’s character. She was so impressive. I loved the love/lust that Faith and Gray had for each other and at the same time distaste for each other. I loved the antagonism and reasons they fought and tried to stay apart. It was great romantic tension through most of the story. The ending was wonderful and very feel good.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    Natalie Ross did an excellent job. (And you don’t hear her breaths - yay!)

    Narrative mode: 3rd person.
    Genre: contemporary romantic suspense.

    "The Best of Linda Howard"

    N.R. makes our hero, come to life and it is a hot story with a mystery. Not erotica but good writing at it's best. This is my all time favorite listen. Enjoy it as much as I have.

    "I get it!"

    Could have been a good story except for the gratuitous and repetitive sex scenes. I started fast forwarding to try to get to the real story. I get it the main characters are hot for each other..............I'm no prude but enough already. Narrator did a great job.

    Story
    "Loved it! Loved them both!!!"
    If you could sum up After the Night in three words, what would they be?

    Compelling story line


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Faith was my favorite because she was so strong in spite of her background and in spite of having this feeling of having the whole town against her. There were moments where I was thinking, "why do you even care about these people? why would you want to live there anyway?" but overall I was convinced of the reasonableness of her motivations and impressed with her character and strength.

    "Not so Good!"

    Except for Faith and Gray there was very little character build up with the other subjects in this book. Also a lot of the things that happened in the book were unrealistic, like the swim under the dock. The love making was brutal and again unreal especially the public restroom episode.
