Stubborn and proud cowgirl, Lily McCormick, is finally coming to terms with her quiet life on her parent’s ranch, until her older brother, as payback, signs her up for 1NightStand. Kidnapped and forced onto a plane to a foreign location, she faces the dreaded cold and an unwanted tryst, until her ex-husband appears before her…as her date.
New York City District Attorney, Rafe Martinez, would do anything to get his ex-wife back, even if it meant taking drastic measures to pretend he was there for another woman. When jealousy and rage surfaces and Lily’s tough demeanor wanes, desire and lust sparks their once powerful connection as truths unfold. Will Rafe convince her to return to him or push her further away from giving their love a second chance?

A blasphemy erupted into the room. “You came here for a one-night stand?”
The rage in her tone enlightened his heart. If she could be angry with him then she must care for him still. Pouring himself a drink, he took his time answering. “Actually more than that.” He turned around. “It’s three days before Christmas. I’m expecting to spend the whole time with my date and escort her to the ball on Christmas Eve.”
Lily’s mouth dropped open then closed. “Well, good for you. But let me ask you, where is your date?”
Rafe frowned. “You know, that’s a good question. Why and how are you in my room?”
“This is my room!”
He stilled, praying she wouldn’t see through him. “That can’t be. I’ve specifically requested a blonde as my date.”
Lily sputtered. “You—you cad!”
“This must be a mistake.” He went over to the chair he’d occupied earlier hidden from the doorway when she’d entered and pulled his phone out of his coat pocket. “I’ll email Madame Eve and get this straightened out. Worse comes to worse, you can go request a different room.”
An outraged gasp sounded behind him. “Why do I have to be the one to leave?”
He whirled around and gave her what he hoped was a convincing bewildered look. “Unless…you’re my date?”
She paused. “Hell no.”
What book is on your nightstand now?
* gulps * Is that a trick question? There’s too many to count… lol. Actually, I was planning on starting with Pamela Clare’s Breaking Point. I’m in a suspense mood.
What was your favorite book when you were a child?
My favorite book? Don’t laugh. It was actually Whitney, My Love by Judith McNaught. I’ve reread it a million times, but I seriously love her historicals.
What are your top five authors?
My top five authors are Judith McNaught, Jude Devereaux, J.R Ward, Julie Garwood, and Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
What books have you faked reading?
LOL. Oh gosh. Um…Withering Heights, The Catcher and the Rye, the Great Gatsby…okay, I had some problems paying attention in English class, can you tell?
What books are you an evangelist for?
Hmmm…very interesting question. I think James Bell Scott’s The Art of War for Writers. I love that book. It’s a great pick me up and helps remind me why I’ve chosen this torturous career.
What books have you bought for the cover?
Um…there’s too many to count? I’m actually not that big of a cover buyer. I always read the blurbs and the excerpts and that’s what makes me decide whether or not to buy a book.
What books have changed your life?
Olivia Gate’s Sheik’s series and Lynn Raye Harris debut book, Spanish Magnate: Red-hot Revenge. They reminded me how much I used to love category books.
What is your favorite line from a book?
Lol. I really don’t have one. Is that wrong?
