Overview

Widow Kate Chilton bravely raises two young sons alone, drawing on memories of her happy marriage to give her strength. When she discovers that her marriage was not what it seemed, her world is shattered.

In her own unique revenge, Kate decides to spend one night with a man and then forget him. She finds the perfect candidate in notorious womanizer Randall Johnson. Magnetically attractive, he has a reputation for loving and leaving. But Randall's reputation is about to change....

Randall Johnson clawed his way up the ladder of success from a dirt-poor childhood. With no time for the complications of love, he prefers women who understand his rules. When Kate invites herself to dinner, his curiosity is piqued. When she kisses him, his self-control goes up in flames. And when she tells him he's just a one-night stand, he refuses to take "no" for an answer.

Nancy Herkness writes a memorable first book. Kate Chilton has her perfect world of raising her two sons shattered when she finds a love letter to her late husband from his mistress. Kate is shocked to her core. She decides to get even in her mind by having a one-night stand with a man she just met, Randall Johnson. Randall is a self-made millionaire and can have any woman he wants. After their one night of passion, Randall cannot get Kate out of his mind. She is so different from the other women that have come and gone in his life. Randall will pull out all the stops to get Kate in his life. I just loved this book. I can¿t thank the person who recommended this to me enough. The passion and the connection between Kate and Randall will stay with you long after you are done reading the book.

This novel is a page turner and so different and refreshing from the many ebooks I have read! It has everything and is real! I completed the book in less than 7 hours. This was a great buy and I am certain that I am going to read the other 2 novels.

Ms. Herkness's first novel is fabulous. She really makes you care about the characters, and you also will love Kate, and reading about her sizzling attraction to the man you want to dislike, but can't. Read and Enjoy!]

Kate Chilton is trying to put her life back together after being suddenly widowed a year ago. She meets sexy CEO millionaire Randall Johnson at a class reunion with a friend, and although Kate is attracted to Randall, she quickly realizes he¿s not her type. After all, she is a single mom of two adolescent boys, and a soccer coach with many fond memories of her happy marriage to her beloved David. While going through business documents of David¿s, she learns a devastating secret about her late husband ¿ and his mistress. Kate feels the need to get even with David, and accepts Randall¿s dinner invitation, viewing it as the perfect excuse to put the past behind her. Neither Randall nor Kate are willing to accept their strong feelings for one another, but fate continues to throw them together ¿ along with Randall¿s ability to control anyone and everything around him. Of course, the fact that Kate¿s boys, Clay and Patrick think Mr. Johnson is the greatest thing on earth doesn¿t hurt Randall¿s position in Kate¿s life one bit. This enjoyable romance stars an incredible lead in Kate, who has a plethora of emotions from the past and present to deal with. Randall means well, and in his love for Kate wants to give her everything - when all she wants is his heart. Will the engineer soccer mom and millionaire playboy be able to build a bridge to love? This debut novel from Nancy Herkness is a very entertaining book!

Kate was a mom with 2 young sons, betrayed by her husband, who dies in another woman's bed. Bitter and with no little financial support, she meets Randall, who wants her almost from first glance, and she decides to get revenge on her dead husband, with him. Good story line, humor, tears, and a suspenseful chase on the George Washington Bridge, which was neat. In the story, as a bridge architect, she had studied the GWB (as New Yorkers call it) so she called on that knowledge for the chase scene. Very interesting, well written story.

The premise was good, but it was rather boring. I couldn't like either character enough to really get into the book and hope for the HEA.

I LOVED this book! I started it last night, read most of the night, then finished it this morning as soon as I could get back to it. I didn't want it to end. I fell in love with the characters, they were believable and easy to relate to. It's sexy but not too smutty, and has cleaner language than most books. Highly recommend. 700+ pages.
