One Night Series Book 1
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “A wonderful, completely realistic love story, this novel took me on a roller coaster of emotions! Starting with a sizzling entry, I was left slack-jawed, then chuckling, then in angst, then sighing in pleasure by the end.” –The Recipe Fairy
Cole Turner’s ex-wife is getting remarried. No amount of alcohol can drown that out, but taking home the hot brunette at the bar is a good enough distraction. That’s all Paige is meant to be—a distraction.
Paige Minor is too busy studying for her law degree and getting over a bad breakup to care about finding another boyfriend. All she wants is one night of careless fun with a complete stranger. Cole seems like the perfect candidate.
When Cole goes to pick up his son from his ex’s perfect house, with her perfect fiancé, and perfect new life, the last person he expects to see is Paige. She definitely shouldn’t be the one opening the door. As he stares at the person who was in his bed less than twenty-four hours earlier, a single thought occurs to him: I just slept with my ex’s new stepdaughter.

Finally getting to the door, I had no idea who I was expecting, but Hemsworth was definitely not on the list.
My heart pounded in my chest, and my stomach did a flip.
“What are you … how do you know where I live?” My first thought was Holy crap, I have a stalker! But there was confusion on his face too, so I had no idea what was going on.
It wasn’t until Cody came running out, throwing his arms around him and screaming “Dad!” that I realised what actually happened last night.
I slept with my new stepbrother’s dad. I had sex with my stepmother’s ex-husband.
I wanted to shrink back into myself. It didn’t really happen, did it? We have to be in some kind of alternate universe. Like Asgard. That would explain why Thor is here, at my fucking house, looking like the god he is in black jeans and a light denim button-down shirt.
Cole hugged Cody tight but didn’t take his eyes off me. “Hey, buddy. How ya going?”
“Good. Wanna see my new room? We just moved all my stuff in.”
“Of course,” he said, finally releasing me from his stare and looking down at his son. “I’ll be along in a minute. I need to … umm … I forgot something out in my car. I’ll be back in a sec, okay?”
“Okay.” Cody ran back inside, leaving us both standing in the entryway completely silent and completely stunned.
“This isn’t happening,” he mumbled. He started pacing the porch, running his hand through his hair. “Please tell me you’re a babysitter, or a housekeeper, or … fuck, I don’t know. Please tell me you’re not who I think you are.”
My mouth opened, but nothing came out.
“Reece said Paul had a daughter. I just assumed a pimply pre-teen with pigtails. Not … oh, this is not good.” He looked like he was about to hyperventilate. “Did you know who I was?” His eyes snapped to mine.
“What?” I choked on the word.
“Did you know who I was?” he said, slower this time and through gritted teeth. He stepped closer so he was within an inch of me.
His aftershave smelled incredible, and being that close to him made me want to reach out and touch him, kiss the mouth that explored all of me last night. I forced myself to find my voice. “I swear, I didn’t. I wouldn’t have …”
We were interrupted by Reece coming to the door. “Everything okay out here? Cody said you forgot something.”
Cole took a step back and tried to wipe the terrified look off his face. “Yeah, yeah, everything’s fine. Thought I left my phone in the car.” He pulled it out of his jeans. “But it was in my pocket.”
Reece looked at him like he’d lost his mind, but stepped aside and invited him in. “Dinner’s almost ready.”

Thanks for doing an interview! Could you tell our readers a little bit about your writing journey?
I actually started writing young adult books under my real name and had four of them published before I ventured over to the romance genre. My characters in book number five kept trying to add steam and would use colourful language that really doesn’t belong in young adult. I started a side project to release all of their sexual frustrations and came up with the One Night series.
How many books do you currently have published?
The One Night series has two books currently published, with the remaining three of the series planned for release in 2017.
What has been your favorite book to write so far? Why?
One Night with Hemsworth was so easy to write. Cole and Paige’s story was desperate to get out, so the first draft only took me two months to complete. I loved that it was easy, unlike One Night with Calvin where I kept hitting blocks. I blame the main character, Hunter, for that though. He was so perfect in Cole’s book, I was worried he wouldn’t live up to the hype in his own book.
Are you currently working on a book? Will this be your next release?
I’ve gone a bit backwards and I’m actually working on book four of the One Night series before even starting book three. But I’m hoping to release them both close together sometime next year.
What do you enjoy most about writing?
The escape from real life. The fact I can fantasize about my boyfriends and my husband can’t get angry at me because they’re fictional.
Do you ever get writer’s block? If so, how do you deal with it?
I have terrible ADHD, and generally when I get stuck on one book, I’ll start another. Also writing young adult means I flip-flop between two or three (okay five) projects at once. I go wherever my mind takes me, which is why my drafts take anywhere from two months to a year to write.
Have you ever had one of your characters to take a twist you weren’t expecting and surprise you?
I haven’t with my romances, but this happens in nearly every single young adult book I write. Teens are a pain in the ass to work with. Even fictional ones.
Which of your characters is your personal favorite? Least favorite? Why?
I LOVE Hunter in One Night with Hemsworth, and then he gets his own book in One Night with Calvin. He is the epitome of what I want in a man. A little less manwhorish would be nice, but apart from that, I think he’s perfect.
My least favourite is Reece. She is the ex-wife of Cole in One Night with Hemsworth and she does some pretty nasty manipulating. However, her book is book three of this series, and while I haven’t started writing it just yet, I do have high hopes she can turn her life, and her attitude, around. I’m hoping she finds redemption.
So far, what has been your favorite scene to write?
Any scene with Hunter. He’s definitely a show stealer.
If you were to recommend your books to a stranger, which book would you advise them to start with? Why?
Each One Night books are standalones, but I’d recommend starting with Hemsworth because I may have a slight case of OCD and I have to read a series in order, even if they are all standalones that are interconnected.
Now it’s time to get to know you! What are some of your favorite books to read?
Anything YA or steamy romance. My favourite author is Elle Kennedy. I really only have one prerequisite for the books I read, and that is they need to make me laugh. I’ll read a serious book (I loved The Fault in Our Stars by John Green) but it needs to have splashes of humour throughout so my brain isn’t fried by the end of it.
Is there a book that you have read that you feel has made a big impact on your life? Why?
The Hunger Games is the book that made me fall in love with reading and writing again. I can pretty much thank it for my writing career. I basically hadn’t read anything since high school, and once I started again at twenty-eight, I couldn’t stop. Which in turn, made me want to write, and then a few years later, I’m suddenly a published author, making a living out of doing the thing I’d always loved but was too distracted with a “real job” to give it my full attention.
