Hot Winter Kiss

Irish Kisses – Book Four / 1 Night Stand Series

1 Night Stands are quickies that are stand alone stories. However, there are a few that are roughly related. Hot Winter Kiss is one of these and it absolutely perfect in bringing an interesting secondary character to the forefront. But, this isn’t your typical romance either. In just a few short pages, Granny Sandra has to face the fact that she may be a grandmother but she’s still a desirable woman, even to someone much younger than herself. Her insecurities only add to the story and help make what could have been an unbelievable match very believable. But, this story isn’t all about Sandra, Ardan has his own issues to work through which he does with Sandra’s help. And, as with all 1 Night Stands, the sex is hot and the ending happy.

Sandra is a barmaid in London at an Irish pub. She loves reading romances and for Christmas her co-workers send her on a 1 Night Stand date. She’s not too sure about this as she’s sure is too old for such nonsense. But, she’s willing to give it a try. Ardan’s wife died leaving him to raise his son alone. He’s contacted 1 Night Stand for his perfect woman. He has no idea who they are going to send but he’s willing to give it a try. Although Sandra is much older than him, he sees her perfections, not her imperfections. Now, if he can only get Sandra to give him a chance!

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. 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?
