Book Description:
Hot winter kisses to warm broken hearts….

Sick of tending to everyone else’s needs around the holidays, divorced barmaid and granny Sandra ferries it from London to Belfast. All she wants for Christmas is some peace with a romance story in front of a roaring fire in a remote Irish castle. What she gets is a most unexpected Christmas present from her friends at Bell’s—A 1Night Stand with a young Irishman.

Can she hack it in the real world of romance, or are life’s complications and treacherous snowstorms best left to the pages of a book?

Newly widowed Ardan Draighean owns Ballygalley castle. Once run as a hotel with his late wife, the stone building now serves as a home for him and his son. After hearing about Madame Eve’s matchmaking skills, he contacts her in search of the perfect match. Although much older than him—by fifteen years—Sandra is his ideal woman. He be damned if he’ll let a good story get in the way of his happy ever after with her.

Hot winter kisses are all this couple needs to stay warm this Christmas, but will the heat stay long after the magical season of mistletoe has finished?

My Review
5 of 5 Hot Winter Kisses

Holy Irishman I so want to go to Ireland after reading this Novella. Man oh man was this 1Night Stand to hot to handle. I loved all the descriptions and the hot time this couple spent together was incredible. I know some people say that age difference can be a downer in a relationship and yes women can be cougars but hot dam these two made it work!

Sandra is in London working and taking care of everyone around her. Her only peace and quiet is when she is able to lose herself in a good book. It is Christmas time and she wants to be loved but she can't seem to find anyone so her co-workers give her the gift of a lifetime a date with 1Night Stand by Madame Eve. She is not sure what she is getting herself into but she goes to Belfast anyways and there she is relaxing thinking about what could happen with this 1night stand. Can he give her what she needs or will her books be her lovers?

Ardan is a recent widow raising his son at the castle where he and his late wife ran as a hotel. Ardan is lonely and seeking companionship when he turns to Madame Eve and her 1Night Stand services. Madame Eve knows that Ardan and Sandra belong together even though there is 15 years age difference but once these two get together only time will tell. Will Ardan and Sandra be able to stay together after the hot kisses and night filled with passion ends? Will Sandra be able to put her books down and live in reality?

Lord knows I love my 1Night stand Novellas! 
A swoon tease PG/13
“No phones! But I’ve got to call the family and let them know I arrived safely.” “We’re stranded here until the roads have been cleared.” “Heck, I’m meant to travel to Dunluce Castle the day after tomorrow.

I’m booked in for their Christmas Eve dinner special.” “You should make it fine. The snow never sticks around for long with us being on the coast. But we’re not likely to get any more bookings, at least not today. It’ll just be yourself and Mr. Draighean as guests, by the looks of it.”

“Mr. Draighean?”

“You met him, I believe. He drove you home through last night’s terrible storm.”

“It’s just us? Here in this castle? With no phones? Stranded here....” What did I say, St Nick? No more fuck ups.

“Ah, here he is now.”

The back door swung open, and there he stood, holding a bird carcass by its feet. “The bird is from ya husband. Reckon ya can rustle up a dumpling stew with this for dinner tonight?” “Of course.” Laura took the dead animal. Holding it at arm’s length and scrunching up her face, she dropped it into a huge boiler pot. She then rushed to the sink to scrub her hands clean. “Eww, why can’t we get our meat from the store like everyone else?”

Sandra snorted. “Do guests usually bring their own dinner ala fresh-from-the- farm?”

“I’ve been coming here years, love. Like family, I am.” He winked at Laura who rolled her eyes and turned to finish making a brew.

“Erm, guess I kinda owe you a thank you for last night.”

“No need. Besides, I think ya kiss was thanks enough.” Chuckling, he motioned to Laura for a drink.

“Not going to let me forget about that, are you?” Sandra backed up against a kitchen cupboard and gulped.

He strutted into her personal space and nudged her chin. “Nope, and I’m only ta happy ta oblige a replay...for memories sake,” he rasped, slinking forward and pinning her against the worktop behind her.

“You cheeky beggar.” Sandra glanced over his shoulder and willed herself not to look him in the eye, for if she did, her knees would buckle and she’d slam to the ground. A nervous giggle escaped her. She placed a hand over his and squeezed at his fingers to get him to release his clasp. There was no budging him.

“I just want....” He moved closer still, his breath grazing her mouth, and she leaned toward him. She tried to stop the forward motion, but it seemed her body knew more about what she needed than her brain did.

“The sugar for me brew.” He reached around her and retrieved the bowl of caster sugar. Relief and disappointment surged through her, and the inevitable happened. Her legs gave way. She swayed a little but grabbed the worktop to save her fall.
