The weekend that started it all…

Sebastian Clark’s intentions are simply to buy Nicole, a beautiful stranger, a drink, make her laugh and disappear before dawn. As a publicist for Snapshot, his days are long and his moral code is to always keep things light. Until he touches her and lust fades any lasting hold on common sense. His questionable motives pave a road to unbelievable pleasure.

Nicole Harrison is on the fast track for a promotion at Limelight, a PR boutique. She’s given up dating, especially handsome men. They tend to suck up time and sometimes common sense. Sebastian has the ability to do both. One single night won’t break her own rules and Nicole gives in to temptation.

The boundaries are clear—no last names, no shared details. She has only to walk away to end the affair. One night turns into three, and her naughty little weekend becomes more than just sex.

One night of consenting pleasure sets Sebastian Clark and Nicole Harrison on a course that could ultimately destroy them both, or bring them a love for all time…

Nicole Harrison can’t help but be impressed when Sebastian Clark sits next to her at the bar. She’s had a horrid day and just wants to sit and enjoy a stiff drink, catch her breath and have a few minutes of solitude. But Sebastian manages not only to make her laugh, but pique her interest. He’s clearly more than willing for a quick fling, but doesn’t appear desperate or even on the prowl. After a pleasant evening of bantering, what was supposed to be a single kiss turned inexplicably for them both into a heated night of raunchy sex. One night turns into the weekend, as they both cross boundaries and become more intrigued and interested in each other.

This book is scorching hot, with plenty of explicit sex and dirty talk. The ending was satisfying, but not a traditional happily ever after. Romantic readers who need a definitive, solid “happy ending” might want to be prepared for a different style of resolution to the coupling. I found there was plenty of emotional connection between Nicole and Sebastian and it was very realistic – no swooning heroine or over the top hero. Both dedicated, career driven people our protagonists are modern and more than willing to share a weekend of being lovers and giving themselves completely over to each other. For a steamy read, this fits the bill and will get your blood pumping.
