One Breathless Night
Harlequin Blaze, Aug 18 2015, $5.50
“One Breathless Night” by Jo Leigh. At a 007 New Year’s Eve party, Boston schoolteacher Jenna Delaney in horrid disbelief watches her long time fiancé kiss someone else at midnight. Also observing the lip locks is storm chaser Rick Sinclair whose girlfriend is the other party. Stunned, Jenna and Rick turn to each other for solace that leads to a geographical distant relationship though neither expects anything to come of it.
“Hard Knocks” by Lori Foster. In Japan suffering a cut that required stitches and costs him an SBC main event fight, Gage “Savage” Ringer returns home to heal and further his relationship with Harper Gates. In love with Gage, Harper assumes he did not miss her while overseas. Still she decides a fling can’t hurt too badly.
The main event is an enjoyable Three Wicked Nights contemporary starring two likable rebounders though the storyline drags at times. The SBC support romance is a paper copy reprint of an interesting SBC Ultimate (see Holding Strong and Tough Love) e-novella.
