All she wants is one perfect night of passion.
Emily Scarlet's husband left her for his secretary and died in a car accident—all on the same day. Now, six months later, Emily has emerged from her chrysalis of painful memories. And to prove she has what it takes to attract a man, she's determined to experience one perfect night of passion.
Feline shapeshifter, Saber Mitchell has a problem with his four boisterous younger brothers. They're out of control, causing trouble and dragging him into the mire. It's too late for him, but he hopes to get his brothers mated and settled, and the inaugural Middlemarch ball is the place to introduce them to marriageable women.
Unbridled sex is the last thing on Saber's mind, but one glimpse of the bubbly Emily Scarlet in her slinky red dress changes his mind. Sex with her is a necessity. They dance. They make love—passionate, intoxicating and satisfying.
One thing is clear—a single night isn't enough. Saber must have her for his mate, but Emily isn't so easy to convince…or trust.

Emily Scarlet's husband died the day he left her for another woman after telling her she was boring, frumpy, and predictable. She is determined to prove him wrong at the Middlemarch ball. The ball is to find mates for the many single men, some who are shifters. Not knowing about shifters, she is attracted to one of them. He thinks Mate and she thinks one night stand. He does everything he can to convince her to stay without forcing her with a Mate bite. His rambunctious younger brothers are a hoot and their stories are to come. I loved the inside joke reference to Janaya also by Shelley Munro but not available on Nook. I would have liked to have her problem with her best friend and sister-in-law resolved in this book. Maggie adored her brother and did not know of his true treatment of Emily. This problem appears to be resolved in a future book. I received a free copy in return for my honest opinion.
