Susanna Corrigan believes in Santa Claus. Always did. So a Christmas-time flight to Alaska for a one night stand with a man especially chosen for her is a perfect gift. Fun and great sex with Mr. Right Now fits her bill for no strings, no commitments.

Then hunky Gil Santana laughs with her, buys her dinner and takes her ballroom dancing. She’s enchanted--but scared.

What will it cost her to make Gil Mr. Right Forever?

I just love the holiday themed 1Night Stand series. Ms. DeLand has written a sweet yet steamy short story.
Susanna Corrigan is a very busy woman. With her successful career, she doesn’t have much time for a relationship. So she does the next best thing, she signs up for the services of Madame Eve of 1Night Stand. All she asks for is one night of exciting heart pounding passion with no complications or promises. She is very excited about her upcoming date. All is perfect except for one small thing…she is heading to Alaska.
Gil Santana has had it with Hollywood, all the fakeness, lying and BS. Moving to Oregon was his escape from it all. Now happily teaching in Portland, he is ready for a little heat in his life. He doesn’t expect much from the services of 1Night Stand, all he wants is a memorable experience. What he didn’t expect is his instant attraction to a guest at the hotel. The type of woman that he is trying to avoid; a woman with wannabe movie star looks and a body made for sin.
Their attraction is combustible, but things change when they discover that they are both what they didn’t want from the experience. Gil is relationship material and Susanna has stars in her eyes. Can these two get past the expectations of what each thought they didn’t want?
I thought for sure that these two were going to detonate when they first met. Thank goodness they were in the hotel pool to help cool things down. It could have gotten very dangerous. Sparks and steam were coming off them in droves. I enjoyed how Ms. DeLand built their passion, not allowing them to just fall into bed. There is also a wonderful and unexpected scene that occurs in the ballroom. It just helped prove that they were meant to be together; a perfect couple in more ways than one.
This is a fabulous short story. You could feel the heat coming off the pages and when they finally got their happily ever after I actually cheered. Well done Ms. DeLand!
