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.

This is the last book I read for the challenge and I changed it from another title because Cindy W’s review intrigued me. I have just recently discovered Linda Howard, I have read Mr. Perfect and Dream Man. Even though this book wasn’t as good as those two I still enjoyed this book. I liked the storyline of the poor girl coming back to her hometown to show everyone that she made something of herself. I did have two problems with this story. The first is that Faith’s childhood was so horrible I didn’t really understand why she wanted to move back there. The second part was the relationship between Faith and Gray. I understand why Gray was so mad at anyone named Devlin, but I felt that he was to mean for to long. I would still recommend this book, but I would tell someone to read Mr. Perfect or Dream Man first.

Rating 4!!!
