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 here, and you’ve got a real scorcher of a listen. I hope you enjoy After the Night.

Great Linda Howard book
Extremely engaging book. Faith is a likable character. She grew up hard with a "trashy" family in a small town. When Faith was 14 she and her family were run out of town. Gray, a local very young rich man, was instrumental in having the family thrown out. Faith ends up in a foster home and gets a scholarship to college. She does very well running her own business. Years later she goes back to the small town with the intent of staying this time. Gray still does not want her in town and influences all the locals to shun her - they won't even sell her groceries or gas. However, Gray and Faith are strongly attracted to one another. Faith believes Gray's father (who supposed ran away with her mother and left his family for good) was murdered rather than running away. She wanted to find out what really happened to him. Gray just wants her to leave town because he thinks her presence upsets his mother and sister. But he doesn't want her to go too far away because he wants to have an affair with her. Faith will never to that because of the embarrassment she suffered from her trashy mother and sister.
I am sorry to say that I never warmed up to Gray. He was cruel to Faith and he was always grabbing and manhandling her. In my opinion he never made up for his meanness to Faith. The reader was great and the abridged version was done quite well. I had read the book years ago and can truly say that the abridged audio version was just as good if not better. The unabridged book went on a little long telling the story - the abridged version was a better length and the reader was excellent.
Thought it was a great story
The steam between the two main charactors
"They were drawn to each other inspite of their past"
