Happy Anniversary to Corbin and Matt!



by Starla Kaye

I can’t believe it has already been a year since my second story with 1 Night Stand, Starting Over, was published. Time goes so quickly. I’m always turning around and saying “Wasn’t it just Christmas yesterday?” as I begin easing into the pre-gift-buying panic time. Anyone else ever feel that way?

My heroes, Corbin Bradley and Matthieu DuCharme, feel like I do, amazed at the passage of time. Corbin mentioned to me the other day that he still feels like it was just yesterday that his wife of ten years divorced him. Without her gentle understanding and love for him, he probably would have continued trying to save a marriage that had never been right for either of them. Fortunately she had been strong enough to let him go, to encourage him to seek the kind of relationship truly meant for him. Otherwise he might have kept burying his desires and needs. But Pamela wouldn’t allow it. She guided him into contacting Madame Eve and gave him the chance to meet Matt.

Matt, too, had been struggling with his life when Madame Evangeline’s services became known to him. He’d been deeply in love with Henri and certain his life would continue happily on until the day he died. Except an accident took his lover from him and left him devastated, uncertain he would ever emotionally heal. Although he’d been uncertain about taking a chance with the matchmaker’s one night stand services, he feels forever indebted to her. He was given a second chance to have a warm and loving relationship.

When asked how this last year has been for them, both are quick to admit that they’ve had ups and downs…good moments and bad moments. Like any other relationship. But no matter what, neither of them can imagine life without the other one with them.

“Arguing about this or that isn’t really important,” Corbin states. He grins crookedly at Matt, who flashes back a look hot enough to make him shift in his chair. “Because there is always the making up to seriously heat things up and make it all better.” He winks. “If you know what I mean.”

  1. Daniel and Calhoun --oh it has to be the cowboy. How can anyone resist a cowboy? But then - guy in suit and tie.... no - I'm sticking to cowboy.

  3. Congrats on your publishing anniversary for Starting Over! It's amazing how quickly the year passes.

    The heroes names are Calhoun and Daniel. I'm not sure who I'd chose as they both sound super sexy, Daniel so confident, and Calhoun so confused.

    All the best!

  6. The heroes are Daniel and Calhoun. Both sound sexy. One in his business suit, the other in the jeans, boots, and cowboy hat.... nope, can't choose. I'd take them both.

  7. Daniel and Calhoun are the heroes. I'm usually drawn to the business type, but I think in this case I'm more drawn to Calhoun. I love both, however.
