1Night Stand = Happily Ever After

Buy One Night with the Bride HERE

By Sara Daniel 
Happily ever after is my stock and trade. In romance, after the characters have gone through hell and heartbreak, their wedding becomes the symbol of the happily-ever-after future they earned. But what if the two people getting married are completely wrong for each other? What if they’ll never be happy together? What if they’re both good people who will be faithful and grit their way through the long years, regardless?

Well, if the wedding is only a week away and you’re the mother of the bride living your own less-than-fulfilling marriage, perhaps you turn to Madame Eve to give your daughter a 1Night Stand so she can discover what she’s missing.

That’s what happens in my new release One Night With the Bride. The entire bridal party needs a good dose of love and romance, even if their lives are turned upside down in the process.  So, stay tuned. A wedding that was never meant to be can still lead to happily ever after, just not in the way anyone expects.

When her society matron mother presents Caroline with a one-night stand date a week before her wedding, she’s appalled. Even worse, the encounter will take place at the fantasy ranch resort operated by her high school lover, Javier Alvarado. Although determined to remain faithful to her fianc√©, she’s tempted and intrigued to see her first love again. It’s not like she has to sleep with him.

But one look and kiss later, she yearns for the man she walked away from so long ago. Unfortunately, when Javier discovers Caroline is engaged, all he can see is deception and heartbreak all over again.

Can a 1Night Stand from Madame Eve reunite them or will one night with the bride sever their ties forever?

Excerpt

He led her to the seclusion of the stable then spun to face her. “Are you buttering up my employees to gather secrets about my resort so you can undermine my success and create your own for Sunburst Hotels?” 
She blinked, her blue eyes owlish and innocent. “You think I arrived in a helicopter and announced my presence to the entire county to engage in corporate espionage? Granted, I don’t have any prior experience, but I think I’d take the under-the-radar approach. Arrive in a rental car and check in anonymously. Maybe apply for a job as a janitor.” 
Okay, so he’d accused before thinking the idea through. Her closeness rendered him temporarily insane. He gripped her upper arms. “What are you doing then?” 
“For Sunburst Hotels? Absolutely nothing. I quit my job a month ago.” 
“You want to apply as my private janitor? I’m only in my office at night, and if you came in I guarantee you wouldn’t be emptying garbage cans.” 
Her eyes grew even more luminous. “What would I be doing?” 
“Stripping, so I could take you on my desk.” 
Her lips parted, as if the image turned her on. 
The hell with the desk. He pulled her flush to his body, wanting her immediately—in the stable, on his real turf. 
“Wait.” She pushed against his chest. “We can’t just pick up where we left off fifteen years ago.” 
“Why not? We’re two consenting, unattached adults.” 
Of course, they had issues from the past to work through. But when they’d been together, she understood him the way no one else ever had. 
“Um.” Her gaze dropped away from his. “Actually, I’m not unattached. I’m engaged.”

    1. I really liked this book, Jessica! Sara and I speed-edited it due to some last minute scheduling changes and with every round, I fell harder for the hero. Of course, almost every hero I write is Latino, so that didn't hurt! LOL.

      Highly recommended read from an unbiased editor! :-)
