Her One-Night Prince is a Cinderella story about a woman's dream to be someone she's not at her class reunion.
As all fairy tales go, happy endings don't come easily. Shy and sheltered Lydia St. Clair is awkward around men, so she advertises for a gay man to be her date and revamp her style. Mitch Gannon answers Lydia's ad, and he's perfect for the job--he's handsome and, even more important, he's charming.
Unbeknownst to Lydia, Mitch is straight and answered the ad as the unwitting target of a practical joke. Before he can reveal the truth, Lydia is convinced he's her fairy godmother, ready to transform her into the belle of the ball. Mitch, prince that he is, doesn't have the heart to set her straight.

When she’s not writing, she works as a personal fitness trainer and group exercise instructor. All the exercise supports her voracious Cheetos® and chocolate habits. She makes her home in the Pacific Northwest with her husband of almost 30 years, a German Shepherd beast who thinks he’s a lap dog, a cat who plots to kill the beast, and a dead gecko. She counts it as one of her greatest blessings that both of her adult kids still live nearby. In her free time, Rebecca enjoys reading, watching Criminal Minds reruns on TV, and doing absolutely nothing.

I admit it. I was a nerd in high school. I tried, honestly I did, but I never made higher than geek. To top it off, I wasn’t a brain, an audio-video geek (no computers when I went to high school) or anything that would put me in a certain crowd. I was just a misfit. Like Lydia St. Clair, the heroine of this story, says, “I was so the complete opposite of popular.” So I had rather intense feelings (and more than a few flashbacks to my own life) reading this book. What Lydia and Mitch Gannon have is somewhat unique in a romance novel. They’ve developed a true friendship. They laugh and kid each other as only friends can do, and Mitch is helping Lydia gain confidence in herself, especially where men are concerned. I loved this aspect of the story – that a man and a woman can be BFF’s before the romance begins rather than be instantly in lust or antagonizing toward each other before they fall in love. One thing that doesn’t quite ring true for me is Lydia’s selfless devotion to her father, an invalid with a brain injury thanks to a car accident. Don’t get me wrong – the fact that she wants to keep him at home instead of sending him to a nursing home is admirable. What seems implausible is that she is always so upbeat about helping her father. As anyone who’s cared for a loved one will tell you, it is HARD work and very emotionally taxing. There are times you want to scream over nothing more than a spilled drink yet Lydia handles it all calmly and with humor. Despite that one minor flaw, the story is charming and well-written. Mitch and Lydia have a wonderful relationship, despite a few setbacks along the way, and I won’t spoil the ending but suffice to say that it is super-romantic. The stuff our Cinderella dreams are made of. I’m thinking maybe I should place my own ad on Craigslist… Review by Marissa. Book Provided by CBLS Promotions.
