Overview

Doctorate in hand, Jane Ann Summers is ready to return to the South Seas paradise of her youth, when the director of the institute—her mother—drops a bomb. She cannot return until she experiences more of life...a social life.

Determined to waste no time, Jane searches for a shortcut and discovers the 1Night Stand dating service. A single night with geologist Dr. Lukas Gerard, and she can go home and get on with her fascinating study of world weather trends. The only question is whether to have sex with him…after all, it would be her first, and maybe only, time.

Lukas’s own field of study has shown him some alarming trends. He believes a killer earthquake may rattle the western half of the United States in the near future. In preparation, he converts an abandoned gold mine to a secret bunker, loaded with supplies and all the comforts of home. Only thing he needs now is company in his hideaway. Unsure how to find the right companion, he turns to 1Night Stand, but neither he nor Jane are prepared for the sudden impact of one of Madame Eve’s connections.

One night teaches them there is more to life than science…for both of them.

    This is one of my favorite 1night Stand books and I have read a

    This is one of my favorite 1night Stand books and I have read a ton of them.  You have two quirky and highly intelligent people coming together and connecting in a real way.  Yes, this is a 1night stand and that means all the good stuff ;), but there was so much more going on here.  While I do not believe I am anything like the characters, I really felt connected to them. I have no idea if the story portraits preppers accurately, but it felt authentic as I read the story.  Plus, I love cave/mines so the whole concept of an underground lair is super fun for me.  This story is one of the many reasons Kate Richards is one of my favorite authors.  Friendship, love, heat, and authentic connections.  Seriously, what more could you ask for in a romance?

    Virgin Under Ground is part of the Prepper Romance series by Dec

    Virgin Under Ground is part of the Prepper Romance series by Decadent Publishing, a series all written by different authors, each book having the common theme of "preppers" (people who are preparing for the end of the world or at least a catastrophic disaster).




    Kate Richard gives us two highly intelligent, slightly socially inept characters as the hero and heroine of Virgin Under Ground. Both Lukas and Jane are doctors in there respective field of science but neither do much dating or socializing, this sends them to Madame Eve and her 1Night stand service.




    Virgin Under Ground is a fun, quick read, while the title and 1Night stand theme may suggest it's main theme is sex it really spends the majority of the story talking about the prepper lifestyle and the bunker Lukas has built in an abandoned gold mine. We have just one sex scene and it is mildly erotic. The story is a good one and I would love to have seen a little more, we get our HFN with the chance of a HEA.  




    At 50 pages this novella would make a great afternoon or waiting room read.




    I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
