Book Blurb

After three years, Basil finally secures a reservation at the Desert Patch Steampunk Resort. As excited as he is about his 1Night Stand match, he still can’t keep his mind off the one man he wants most. But sometimes love carries a price, especially when his dream comes true and Jason strolls into The Cursed Revolver Saloon.

A stranger has set his sights on Basil, and the one-night stand becomes not only difficult but extremely dangerous. Attacked by a powerfully wealthy lycanthrope, Basil and Jason must fight for their lives and their love. Only by defeating an Alpha wolf can Basil protect his new lover and gain his full powers.

Can Madame Eve's magic overcome fear of rejection and forbidden desires to give Jason and Basil something to howl about?


Book Review

This is definitely a 1Night Stand with a difference: it takes place in a Steampunk resort. Although it as only a background setting and not a major part f the story, I thought it was quite a nice change. Add the facts that Basil is a turned werewolf who is trying to find others of his kind, and the rumors they can be found at said resort, and the scene is set for some interesting fun.

Basil may have requested a 1Night stand date, but what he really wants (other than hopefully find other werewolves) is to become his best friend Jason's lover. The problem is that Jason is married, and Basil doesn’t want to break up the man's relationship. So, to end the "draught" he's been going through as he pines for Jason, he goes to the Steampunk resort. Imagine his surprise and shock when he finds out Jason is his date! Apparently, not everything is as it seems between Jason and his wife.

Jason has been wanting Basil as his lover for a while, and since his marriage was a sham to pacify his werewolf family screaming for him to father some heirs, he is more than ready to explore his love for Basil. He officially ended things with his wife two weeks earlier, so he is ready for his new lover. Except for the resort's villain who has his own ideas…

If you like werewolf stories, if you enjoy reading about almost-unrequited love, and if you're looking for an entertaining read in the 1Night Stand series, you will probably like this short story.
