Susan Kinlow has had her fill of online dating services. So when her best friend pushes her to try 1Night Stand, she is reluctant, wondering what could possibly be different this time around. But her friend swears by Madame Eve and even claims the woman’s ability for matchmaking borders on magical. Ha! Like magic really exists.
When she meets Jason Hendrick she starts to wonder if there is something more to Madame Eve and her talents. He’s handsome as sin, and into all the things she likes, but, for some reason, he keeps dodging questions about his line of work. When things heat up she decides to go with the flow. The passion he ignites in her becomes more important than the secrets he keeps.
Will throwing caution into the wind be a deadly mistake or will she experience ecstasy like she never has before?
She inhaled a deep breath. Time to put it on the table. “I’m actually kind of boring.”
Jason arched a brow. “I don’t believe you.”
“Really? What if I told you I like to curl up on the couch and watch movies, or read a book?”
A seductive grin spread across his lips, and he leaned a little closer. “I’d say watching a movie with someone can be fun. Especially if said someone is as beautiful as you are.” He leaned back. “And reading is a good pastime.”
Her blood heated at the thought of snuggling with him under a blanket. Would he skim his hand along her leg and squeeze her thigh, or would he be more subtle in his touches? Maybe a mock stretch, bringing his arm around her shoulders?
“What movies do you like to watch, Susan?”
Her name on his lips was like a caress against her skin. She shivered with awareness and wiggled in her seat slightly. “I like all types.”
He moved toward her, his warm breath gliding along the sensitive skin of her neck. “But what is your favorite?”
Her lids lowered to half-mast, and she contemplated an answer. Would he think her a big nerd if she answered truthfully? Trying to think or care at all had become hard with him inching closer. Should she be freaked out? Things were moving a little fast. But she liked him close. A strange sense of awareness flooded her veins. Yes, she definitely liked him close. Attraction sizzled between them. Sensual nerve impulses danced across her skin, causing a tingling sensation.
What had he even asked?
“Drama? Comedy? Maybe even horror?”
Yes. That was it. He wanted to know her favorite type of movie. “To be honest, I like movies with a medieval theme.”
“Ah. She wants to be the princess who’s rescued from the tower.”
