Danger brings together two guarded hearts in a battle for survival in this irresistible story from New York Times bestselling authors Linda Howard and Linda Jones.

Sela Gordon, the shy owner of a Tennessee general store, finds safety in solitude. But if anyone can pierce her protective shell it’s the handsome, mysterious ex-military man living alone in the wilds of Cove Mountain. For two years, he’s kept his distance—until the day he appears to warn her that a catastrophic solar storm capable of taking down the power grid is coming. Now, Sela must find the courage to become the leader Wears Valley needs.

Bitter experience has taught Ben Jernigan it’s best to look out for number one. For two years the former soldier has lived in a self-imposed exile, using a top-notch security system to keep people away. But he had to let Sela know about the impending threat—and now the quiet and undeniably sexy woman is making it too easy for him to lower his guard.

As panic spreads, Sela and Ben discover that in the dark, cut off from the outside world, there’s no more playing it safe—in life or in love.

    AFTER SUNDOWN by Linda Howard and Linda Jones hooked me from the first page, but I'm not certain it was the best choice during a pandemic (since it's about a catastrophic solar storm that wipes out the power grid worldwide.) Even so, I couldn't put it down! AFTER SUNDOWN is set in the small town of Wears Valley, Tennessee. Sela Gordon runs a small convenience store. She is reserved and prefers her solitude, but there is one man who could pull her out of her shell—handsome, ex-military, loner Ben Jernigan, who lives in the wilds of Cove Mountain. Sela was attracted to Ben from the first time he came into her store two years before, but her shyness keeps her from approaching him. Then one day he warns her that a solar storm is headed for earth, and she should prepare for the worst.  The worst happens, and Sela must step up to take care of her aunt and cousin and become the leader of Wears Valley, the last thing she wants to do. If Sela doesn't step up, people will starve and freeze to death come winter. But when violence erupts, she realizes she needs help. Sela turns to Ben, and when he refuses, she offer her body in return for his expertise on keeping Wears Valley safe. This story was so realistic that I was ready to stock up on supplies and take our solar off the grid. Loved it from beginning to end with a satisfying happily ever after. Recommended Read
  • A return!

    I have loved Linda Howard for many years, but some books are better than others. This one is her best in quite a few years. I’m glad this author combination is working. I look forward to more. If you like Cover of Night, you’ll love this one.
