A heart-stopping sexy contemporary romance prequel to 
USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde's new Cruel Trilogy.

I spot the mysterious stranger across the party.

I'd seen him in the park, writing furiously in his worn leather notebook.

He's pure confidence, born and bred in high society with eyes like a hawk—observant, cunning, and wicked. With sensual lips and a body made to worship, he's exquisite. A work of art.

While I'm young, innocent, and completely out of my depth.

But I'm drawn to him. Captivated by his approach. When he asks for one night, I have only one word for him.


One summer in Paris. One night with him. One cruel night.

One night in Paris can be a lifechanger. A night to be someoelse, to act out of your behavior and experience new feelings. One night qith him can be cruel and change your life forever. Natalie is having a unique chance in life. On vacation with her friend in Paris, she knows that this opportunity will probably be the only one she will have to get to know other countries. On her last night in town, she meets a young man who had already caught her attention - she saw him in the park every day writing - and deciding to be spontaneous once in her life, she accepted his proposal to get to know the real Paris, not what is shown to tourists. On this night of discoveries, adventures and first times, Natalie will experience various feelings. Until morning comes, and with it, our character will learn the meaning of humiliation, abandonment and broken heart. Six years later, upon taking a new job, the last person she imagined meeting would be the man who tormented her thoughts all those years. Finding out the truth about Penn and the weight of the surname he carries, Natalie will be drawn into a world of appearances, money, evil and lies. And in a place where you can not trust anything or anyone, Natalie will once again fall prey to the cruelty of money. K.A. Linde presents her new series Cruel, where Cruel Money is the first volume and One Cruel Night is the prequel, showing the encounter of the characters. It is essential to read the prequel for a better understanding of the narrative. A night to remember or a night to forget? Only the reader can decide. But, indeed an amazing plot wich makes us desire for more of Penn and Natalie.

I loved meeting Natalie and Penn during their nigh together in Paris. Both trying to find themselves at different stages in life. The connection is immediate and I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen in CRUEL MONEY.

4.5 stars--ONE CRUEL NIGHT is the introductory novella in K.A. Linde’s contemporary, adult CRUEL erotic, romance series focusing on Penn Kensington, and Natalie Bishop. Told from dual first person perspectives (Penn and Natalie) ONE CRUEL NIGHT reveals some of the history and background wherein our heroine Natalie Bishop will meet Penn Kensington, on her last night in Paris, France. Following a whirlwind night of romance and $ex, our heroine wakes up to an empty bed, and an empty apartment, having lost her virginity to the ‘perfect’ stranger. Fast forward six years at which point, wanna-be author Natalie struggles to find a place in the world. ONE CRUEL NIGHT sets the tone for K.A.Linde’s contemporary, adult CRUEL romance series that follows the rekindling relationship between our leading couple. The premise is inviting; the characters are colorful and magnetic; the romance is a one-night seduction of our heroine’s heart.
