Black Friday Blog Hop

I started writing for my first multi-author series (The Wiccan Haus) one year ago. After I finished A Man Worth Fighting For, I started checking out my fellow Wiccan Haus sisters and realized Kate Richards and Dominique Eastwick had both written for Decadent Publishing's 1Night Stand series. In fact, Kate is one of the editors and creators of the series. Naturally, I had to learn more.

As soon as I read about Madame Eve's 1Night Stand service, I was captivated. Regina and Gabriel's story immediately took hold in my imagination.

Regina’s fantasies about her hot marketing assistant, Gabriel, are interfering with her focus at work. In desperation, she turns to Madame Eve to give her a one-night stand with a man who looks just like him. When the Gabriel arrives in her hotel room, she must choose between walking away and playing out her daydreams with the real thing. Their one night becomes a wrestling match for control as Regina strives to keep the upper hand. But Gabriel is just as determined to show her how to work together for business and for pleasure.

As passion trumps protocol, their one night stand quickly becomes much more than a fantasy.


The balcony door slid open. The trim, broad-shouldered backside of a man with Gabriel’s basic frame entered. He was dressed in jeans and a dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up his forearms. Her fingers tingled at the prospect of touching his hard, muscled body and claiming it for the night.

The man secured the glass door then rotated toward her. Backlit by the setting sun, he had the same profile as Gabriel. Perhaps his hair was a tad darker, but she could overlook that. The lack of dimples was more disappointing.

He strolled toward her, blocking the sunset and bringing his gorgeous blond curls into the full view of the overhead lights. A charismatic smile lit up his brown eyes, denting tiny grooves on each of his cheeks. “Regina.”

No. Not possible. Not funny, either. She hadn’t wanted the Gabriel. She wanted a fake, one with no career ambitions and a staggeringly low IQ. She’d spelled out her wants on the matchmaking form. “How did you get in here?”

“I checked in, same as you.”

Her mental agenda said she should be heavy petting her way to a blowjob. It did not include arguing semantics with her assistant or a potential sexual harassment suit.

She had to get him out of here before he ruined the match Madame Eve had set up. No matter how much the other guy looked like him, the more time she spent with Gabriel, the less she wanted anyone else in his place. “Where’s the man who’s supposed to be here?”

“I’m him.”

Desire hit her hard. Everything she wanted was in her reach. And as far away as ever.

I stayed away from the crazy lines this year, but did venture out to Target where a I snagged the new Kelly Clarkson CD for $5 (for me), sweats for $5 (for the 2 older kids) and a Leapfrog Explorer game for $15 (for the littlest one). Not bad for about an hour's worth of my time. Although DH was very disappointed I didn't come up with the $199 Playstation. LOL.
