So...are you ready for a 1NightStand with author Ann Mayburn?
www.decadentpublishing.com 's multi-author series, 1NightStand, is based around Madame Evangeline's match-making skills. She has a, some might say magical, talent for putting the right two people together for just one night. When she does that, anything is possible. Especially when the dates take place at the fabulous Castillo Hotels and Resorts in some of the most exotic places in the world.
Turquoise Moon, Ann Mayburn's 1NightStand book, takes us to...The Appalachian Mountains in North Carolina.
Werepuma and sheltered virgin Kara Vinsenz has no idea how to entice men, furry or otherwise. She contacts Madam Eve of the 1 Night Stand matchmaking service in a desperate attempt to avoid a terrible arranged marriage to a psychopathic shifter. In a daring move that goes against her confined upbringing, she poses as her twin sister to escape her family compound in the hopes of meeting an Alpha and Beta male strong enough to be her mates. She waits to meet them until she goes into heat and is totally unprepared for the consequences of her actions.
Ben Harkil and Jude Carson are on the hunt for the perfect Alpha female to complete their pride and when they meet Kara they believe their prayers have been answered. What starts out as a 1 Night Stand ends up being so much more when Kara realizes that her lies may have doomed from the start the only love that can save her and her pride from a madman.
Ben held perfectly still as the beautiful female before him took a small step closer. He had no idea why she’d fled into the tree, but it wasn’t fear of him. She was fierce, deadly, and magnificent.
The muscles in her legs flexed as she took another step forward, and it took all of his concentration not to back away from her. He must confront her and see what she was made of before he let Jude near her. If she failed his test, they would still have a fun romp together, but no bonding would occur between them.
He deliberately tried to stare her down and her power hurt as it pushed at him, demanding his obedience. Deep inside his soul, his cat snarled and paced, annoyed at being kept from the female. She stood close enough that her scent should have enveloped him, but it was no stronger than before. If anything, he almost couldn’t smell her.
Heart racing in his chest, he trembled as she hovered less than an inch away, the heat of her body pressing against his chest. He would love nothing more than to free her fantastic breasts from the halter top barely holding them in place, but protocol needed to be observed. She was considered royalty among the werepumas and he didn’t want to offend her.
He also didn’t want her to think that he was a pushover.
With a warning growl rumbling in his chest, he fought the desire to offer her his throat. Doing so would signify his acknowledgement of her as his dominant, his Alpha female. She gave him a small smile and her pupils dilated with desire as she very deliberately rubbed her cheek back and forth on his chest, marking him with her scent...or lack of scent.
Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has learned to type one handed while soothing a cranky baby.
