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 employer 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 occurred 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 I 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. They are posted to add visuals to the review and for fun.

I enjoyed this romantic suspense novel by Geralyn Dawson very much.
It was quite a bit different from the other books I have read by her, and I liked it better. I thought that Luke Callahan was a great hero -one who was a bit on the tortured side - and his brothers sound like they will make great heroes for the other books in the series.
Heroine Maddie Kincaid, a girl who has made quite a few bad decisions in the past, was also very likeable. Maddie Kincaid has sworn off of men and started a bus I enjoyed this romantic suspense novel by Geralyn Dawson very much.
Maddie Kincaid has sworn off of men and started a business helping senior citizens in a small Texas town. Her three former lovers were all bad news, but the last one caused her to land in terrible trouble.
Now, she is in trouble again, all because she cleaned out a lake house for a nice old man. After she panics and leaves town in a rush, one of her clients calls and she blurts out her troubles.
He sends her to Louisiana to a DEA agent for help. Arriving at the DEA agent's houseboat to find that no one is at home, Maddie succombs to exhaustion and makes herself at home in one of the beds.
After his partner dies, Luke Callahan quits his job as a DEA agent, not knowing what he will do with the rest of his life. For now, he is going to meet his brother for a few weeks of fishing. Feeling low from attending his partner's funeral, he decides to go ahead and leave even though he has a couple of extra days. Luke travels for a few hours, anchors the boat, and takes a well deserved rest.
He is awakened to a female screaming and is astonished to find a stowaway on board. Luke and Maddie distrust one another at first, and when she finally decides to tell him her story, he believes that it is one of his estranged father's tricks to get him to come back home. Luke's father is the client who sent Maddie to what was supposedly a female DEA agent. Deciding to believe her, Luke sets a plan in motion to return Maddie to Texas the next day while keeping her safe.
Maddie and Luke are attracted to one another, but they do not act on their desire. When Luke sends Maddie off in the care of someone else the next day, she pleads with him to stay with her, but he refuses. Luke arrives at the fishing rendevous with his brothers, but feels terribly guilty over leaving Maddie.
He tries to contact her, but after not being able to reach her for several days, he goes to his hometown where she lives. Arriving just in time to find that Maddie has been attacked, Luke's protective instincts kick in and he determines to keep her safe. As Luke and Maddie spend time together, their desire for one another increases.
They spend what is supposed to be one night of passion together, but when Luke decides to stay at Maddie's house for her protecction, they become more deeply involved.
It becomes apparent that Maddie has landed in a very dangerous situation, and Luke must find out who is trying to hurt her while protecting his own heart. This was a very enjoyable and engrossing book.
