|I say this before I review any story from the 1Night Stand Series, so here goes. This is a series from Decadent Publishing. All the heroines and heroes in this series either have friends who send them to, or they hear about, Madame Evangeline's high-end dating service 1Night Stand. The entire series is written by different authors. Keep in mind I have one hundred and one of this series and have, or will, review seventeen of them. Now, this particular story, Thunder, is not only part of the series but it seems to be the second story from Ms. Kincaid set in Sleepy Hollow. (We meet this hero, Sean Jones, in her story Lightning).
As I just said, we meet Sean in his brother Camp's story, but we don't really know him well. The story begins with Sean receiving a call from a client asking... no, ordering him to come over right now. Of course, Sean is a rude jerk to her but he feels justified since he has a model in his bed and the client called on his private number. The client is our heroine, Veronica Hardwicke, and she knows both Sean and Camp because after her husband died he left her a home and property in Sleepy Hollow and she contracted them to make repairs, update it and generally turn it into her home. Veronica is also a witch though she doesn't feel she's a very good one. Regardless of how annoyed Sean is, he still drops everything to drive out to her house. Well, Sean paid for Camp's 1Night Stand, and it was so successful Camp paid for one for Sean. Apparently, our boy Sean is kind of a manwhore and his brother is worried.
Ms. Kincaid gave us a story which made me laugh and also made me sweat. I was completely annoyed with him at first, mostly since he was always calling her things like princess, countess and duchess and I could mentally see the glare in his eyes. This is where I get a bit peeved since it is business and she's a client. I loved the reason it turned out that Veronica needed Sean (I mean besides the hot, personal, skin time). The two of them were very funny together, especially after Sean got a grip, so to speak, and began to see Veronica as more than a batty client. This story makes me wonder if we will be seeing any other 1Night Stand stories in Sleepy Hollow. I would read them!
