When my critique partner and friend told me I should write a story for the 1Night Stand series, I took it as a fun challenge. The theme of a one-night stand was something I’d never tackled in my writing before. I knew I could turn the story into a fun, sexy adventure for my hero and heroine. After all, that was why they were hooking up: to experience a moment of pleasurable freedom in their lives.
For me, this is the allure of the1NS series. No matter if the story is a contemporary, time travel, or paranormal, the love interests are looking for something, even if they don’t know it. They may think they just want a passionate encounter to liven up their lives, but instead they get something much more: love.
My paranormal 1NS story, Relieving Zoe’s Virtue, has plenty of steamy moments, but it also has plenty heart and emotion between the human heroine and her Leanan Sidhe hero. In every book, I love to see the couple (or in the case of a ménage, a trio) interact out of bed as well as in it. Both kinds of scenes should mesh together to paint a vivid picture of how and why they are falling in love.
And isn’t that why we read romances? Unlike a real one-night stand, 1NS stories are guaranteed a happy ending.
Why do you love the 1NS series? I can’t wait to hear your answers.
