Ready for A Date with Death?

by Louisa Bacio

Life clicks by with a variety of milestones. From birth to first kiss to first love. From sex to first orgasm. (They don’t have to go in that order.) One expects certain things to happen before we leave this world, and when it doesn’t we can feel cheated.

Life isn’t always fair. Madame Evangeline, though, with her 1Night Stand dating service strives to make dreams come true. At least that’s one of my interpretations after reading many of these tales. M. Eve possesses many talents and has more than a few secrets up her sleeves.

As a long-time fangirl of Decadent Publishing’s 1Night Stand series, I had to try my hand at a tale. The love affair started with Liia Ann White’s “One Hot Australian Night,” and my Kindle quickly filled up with these satisfying and steamy quickies.

A Date withDeath doesn’t exactly cheat the ever-after, it’s more like Madame Eve pushes the boundaries between being alive and not. When Maise embarks on her final journey to meet her maker, there are a few benchmarks she never experienced, including mind-blowing loving between the sheets. Can a blind date offer that experience?

Oh, yeah! When Maise comes skin to skin with Reece, it’s the magic of memories making, and then some. Let’s just say that I more than enjoyed sharing this tale, and hopefully readers will, too.

What’s on your wish list to experience? Come on, you can share! One lucky commenter will win some swag, including a Love Knows No Bounds lip balm (U.S. only for shipping).

A Date with Death 
Death sucks. It’s boring, and there’s no chance of getting laid. Stuck in the waiting room of Heaven, Maise fantasizes about all the pleasures of the flesh she didn’t get to experience. When Maise discovers a business card for the dating service, 1Night Stand, she wonders if there’s still a chance.

Reece normally wouldn’t consider being set up, but after his brother buys him a certificate, he feels obligated. A romantic night on the Southern California coast, with the full-of-life Maise leaves him wanting more.

Will a 1Night Stand be enough to overcome death?
