Book Description

From #1 NY Times Bestselling Author, Barbara Freethy, comes a romantic new contemporary series about the Callaways, a big, blended Irish family born to serve and protect. 


The second oldest of the Callaway clan, Aiden Callaway veered from the family tradition of urban firefighting and became a smokejumper, never questioning his choice until the job took the life of his friend, Kyle, and left Aiden with injuries and fractured memories. Everyone blames Aiden for what happened, but he doesn't remember, nor is he sure he wants to remember. The truth may clear Aiden of blame but destroy Kyle's reputation and hurt the people he left behind. 
 


Aiden seeks help from an unlikely ally … 
 


Sara had always been untouchable, sweet, innocent, his sister's best friend, and the girl next door. But one reckless night in their youth took their relationship to a new level. Sara has never forgiven or forgotten the way Aiden brought it crashing down, but she's no longer that girl with the crazy crush. She's a woman in search of her own truth.

The sparks between Aiden and Sara have been smoldering for a very long time. Sara is afraid to take another chance on a man who broke her heart, and Aiden knows better than anyone how dangerous an intense fire can be.

As teenagers they weren't ready for each other. Are they ready now?

** ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS is the first book in an eight book connected contemporary romance series featuring the intriguing Callaway family. Love, mystery, adventure -- the Callaways have it all!

** Fans of Robyn Carr, Mariah Stewart and Nora Roberts might enjoy this family based contemporary romance series

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable January 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good read...kept my interest and offered a lot of story lines to keep me engaged. I liked the story progression and how the romance unfolded. A bit of a sappy conclusion but it is a love story. I was hoping he would go big to prove his love but oh well, what I got will do. Not sure I like the father in this story...his not hers. Her dad's behavior was somewhat understandable but his dad was a bit harsh. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a contemporary romance that isn't too heavy or full of opposition between the H/h. Also if you like a story loaded with people all dealing with issues (that's life!) then you should enjoy this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed the story November 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book. I wonder, though, why we have to be taken through every little detail of the love-making of people in a book. It's a little too much information for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoy Barbara Freethy usually March 11, 2013
By Breader
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was just okay for me. How the characters find the truth of his best friends death was good, but I do not like with there is a lot of repetition in feelings in ever chapter. Also gets old when the 2 main characters you know are going to get together eventually try to pretend that they are not going to. These two people had feelings for each other for years and denied them. For Sara to harbor such hard feelings that carry her thru years of relationships because Aiden did not make out with her is a bit over the top. And Sara's dads feeling were just weird as well. I kept thinking she was a stolen child or something. I did not get that whole plot. Was not my favorite Barbara Freethy.
