Review: After the Night

Book Review: After the Night, by 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'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.

Genre: contemporary romance

Publishing date: November 2009, for the Kindle version. The original first print is from 1995

Mature content: yes

Review: I've had the paperback version of this book on my shelf for a long time, and never got round to read it before. From other reviews I've read, After the Night is pretty much hit of miss, some people love it and others hate it, with very little in between. I seem to be one of those who loved it. Up to a point. It's certainly not Linda Howard's best, halfway through the book you've most likely guessed who the bad guy is, and there's an overload of sex scenes, some of them unnecessarily graphic. But the story is very, very compelling, with lots of twists and turns, and I despite all the shortcomings above, I just couldn't put it down. 

Happy readings,
