"Wow! Griffin and Annie's story is full of mystery, lies, danger, fun, and lots of chemistry. Everything I love in a Callaway book." Lisa
Talented graphic artist and animator Annie Callaway has been commissioned by a Hollywood studio to create the next superhero blockbuster movie, but a bout of creative block has Annie searching the Southern California beach scene for inspiration. A local Irish bar in an old train depot, run by the ruggedly attractive and somewhat mysterious Griffin Hale, piques her interest, and she finds herself weaving fantasies about not only Griffin but also the quirky characters who work there.
The last thing Griffin Hale needs at his bar is a nosy artist looking for personal stories to turn into movie plots. He has carefully cultivated a scene of complete normalcy for people who need it more than Annie could possibly imagine, and it's his job to protect them. But the beautiful redhead with the compelling green eyes is difficult to turn away. Annie's fantasy world where good always conquers evil is not the life that Griffin has lived, and he can't help but think she'll never be satisfied with anyone less than a superhero.
After a string of bad relationships, Annie willingly admits that most real men don't live up to her muscle-bound, cape-wearing protectors of the world, but when her stubborn curiosity propels her into a danger she never expected, she begins to realize that some heroes work in the dark…and a man who fights for you is a man worth fighting for.
While Griffin is determined to keep Annie alive, he's not at all convinced he can give her the happily-ever-after she's looking for. But then some stories take an unexpected turn…
From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy comes another stunning blend of heart-warming romance and spine-tingling suspense in her popular Callaway Series…
What the readers are saying…
"Annie and Griffin's story had so many twists and turns. I never knew what to expect! The chemistry between the two characters was intense but their pasts made it difficult to act on those feelings. I really enjoyed all the humor between all the characters, and the suspense throughout the book." Mindy
"Ms. Freethy has delivered a wonderful and riveting read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was strong; the romance was delightful; and the ending had me worried for the main characters because of the danger they face, but had me loving the way this couple ended up getting their happy ever after."

Customer ReviewsSee All
The Callaway Cousins series is my favorite from Barbara Freethy. I like the way Barbara incorporates family members from previous books into the storyline. I thought this book was very entertaining. It included both humor and suspense. It was a wonderful, uplifting story for the Christmas Season although it can be read at any time. I liked how Griffin’s bar had been transformed from an old train station with some Underground Railroad-type help going on. The bar was able to help several people including some of the unique people that now work there. I also liked the superhero theme giving us the hope that good can always conquer evil. I totally recommend this book as well as all of Barbara Freethy’s books.
A pretty good read
This was just an ok read for me. It had lots of mystery and suspense, but there moments when I wanted to smack both Annie and Griffin upside their heads (more so Annie). The chemistry between them was intense, and everything eventually worked out. I enjoyed catching up with previous characters, and overall the story was good, I just felt there were points in it that dragged. I would still recommend this read, especially if you love the Callaway family.
Another Callaway Hit
Another must read in the Callaway series. Griffin saves Annie from a shark attack which begins their journey to help Annie unlock her block for writing and Griffin wants to end the mysteries in his life so he can lead a normal life again. Romance, mystery, and adventure mix in to make Annie and Griffin’s story a story to read and reread time and again. You can never go wrong with a book by Barbara Freethy.
