After their mother died tragically, however, and their father, Branch Callahan, fell into a neglectful depression, they went out of control. A drunken, careless act, in their teens, caused a fire which burned down a factory the biggest dawsonn in town. Branch Callahan disowned and banished his sons from their home following that incident. The four brothers grew up to be worthy men, but they never forgave their father.
Having read the Eternity Springs series and A Callahan Carol, first, I was surprised that this event regarding John had already gerayln from the get-go of the Callahan series. Maddie “Baby Dagger” Kincaid, whose back-story was sad and made me feel for her, has finally made a home for herself in Brazos Bend.
Sparks flies between Luke and Maddie straight off. This was an “Okay” Romantic Suspense, for me. He apologised for them pretty much immediately after, and he did have his romantic and sexy moments – Oh, Yeeaahh…Mmm…Bananas… LOL – but some of the things he said were uncalled for, and were more, it seemed to me, him taking out his issues with his father on Maddie.
And Maddie… well, while I also understand her issues and felt for her, her jumping to conclusions did annoy me a bit. Mind you, I did read this during a heat wave and had been having headaches, so I might have been grumpier and less forgiving that usual. I hold a different view…at this stage. Her love of animals shines through and as a fellow animal lover Dawaon really appreciate it. Looks like the other two books in this series will have to wait a bit.
This book IS steamier than the Eternity Springs series. Give Him the Slip — Luke Callahan 2. Never Say Never — Matthew Callahan 3.

Sep 08, Miss Kim rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Fans of Nora Roberts. Luke Callahan is my favorite hero. He is the bad boy turned cop, and boy is he is hot! I loved him and Maddie together and I was rooting for them the whole time.
I LOVE this series! It reminds me of Nora Robert’s trilogies where the are three siblings that are very close and involved in all three stories.
