One Night With the Millionaire by Shannyn Schroder is the first book in her new Daring Divorcees series. Tess Howland is our heroine, and we meet her from the start; she is a nurse, as well as a divorcee with three kids. She is attending the Saint Marks Gala, an annual fund raiser for her hospital, and makes her rounds to convince people to donate to Saint Marks. Miles Prescott, is a millionaire playboy, who attends this gala to please his mother and sister, who run their company, and expect Miles to step up and have a more active role; especially with their father having passed away a year ago. He notices a woman who immediately gets his attention, and makes sure to introduce himself to Tess. Miles knows how to attract woman, and Tess enjoys the attention he gives her. Tess is a workaholic, and has little time for herself caring for her three kids. But she decides since she is free, to have a one night stand with the handsome Miles. One night only. Best laid plans do not always work out. Miles is not willing to let Tess go, as he enjoys her company, not to mention the sex. He sees in Tess, a woman different then his other woman, and perhaps a future, but can he convince her to allow him to be part of her life? In a short time, their relationship will heat up, and Tess cannot resist the hot sex with Miles. Tess tries to keep their relationship private, but Miles wants more. In time she will relent and have him meet her kids, who end up liking Miles. What follows is a sweet, fun story with both slowly falling in love, but Miles will begin to become frustrated in his attempt to convince Tess that he wants a more permanent relationship with her and with her children. Tess after her nasty divorce pushed herself to be independent, self sufficient, and refuses to allow Miles, who is rich, to help. Will Miles be able to change Tess’s mind? One Night with the Millionaire was a fun read, and wonderful characters, including Tess’s friends, children and Miles’s mother and sister. Shannyn Schroeder once again gives us a sweet romance that keeps us unable to put the book down. I look forward to reading more from this new series.

Tess is a single mom of three kids. She has been divorced for a few years, yet never really dates. The only time she lets loose is once a year at the Saint Marks Gala. She works the crowd for funds for her department and then finds her one night of fun. Miles is a bored playboy. He hates going to these fundraisers, especially since his father died a year ago. But tonight he must be strong and be there for his mother. Especially for this fundraiser. This was his father’s favorite fundraiser. So he will endure it and smile for his mother. As Miles observes the room, he stops dead when his eyes land on a beautiful woman. As the night progresses Miles night improves. But all that changes when he wakes up alone in bed the next morning. No No that will not do. When Miles tracks her down and offers to take her on a date, she says no. But no is not in Miles vocabulary. What was suppose to be one night turns into something that Tess is not ready to deal with. This was such a fun and energetic read. The characters were wonderful. Tess herself is a very independent woman. She is so used to taking care of herself that she never has time for herself. Miles on the other hand is not the playboy that everyone makes him out to be. Even though she says no to him often, he never gives up. Overall this book is a wonderful and fun Rom-Com. The characters are lovable and fun. I really enjoyed Miles perspective and how he tried to show he could fit into their lifestyle even though his is money. I also enjoyed the realization of the single mom angle. Sometimes people don’t understand what single mothers go through on a daily basis. It really gives us a clear picture. Great work incorporating real with fantasy. If you are looking for a feel good romance with stubbornness, then this book is right up your alley. It is full of fun and witty banter. It has fun loving characters with a classic Cinderella vibe. So break out the wine, pick up this book and curl up for a good time.

I thoroughly enjoyed One Night With A Millionaire. Perhaps because the heroine is a little older; I’m not sure. The writing was great and I found myself diving right in and I couldn’t put the book down. From the first to the last chapter I was hooked. A single mum and nurse in her forties, Tess Howland’s life is all about trying to maintain peace and a sense of balance; not only with her kids but also her ex-husband and work. When the opportunity arises for a one night stand with sexy as sin, Miles Prescott, she decides to go for it, after all nothing will come of it, right? Imagine Tess’s shock when the millionaire is interested in pursuing more than the initial one night. What will Tess do? Will she accept or run? Miles and Tess were fantastic together and I loved how accepting Miles was of her life and her children, without completely trying to take over. This was a feel good romantic lover story that hit all the right buttons for me. I loved the interaction as they got to know one another and it was often amusing to watch as Miles navigated the “instant” family he got as their relationship progressed. This book made me smile and was an entertaining and fun read.

This is the first book that I’ve read by Shannyn Schroeder and I am so glad I requested to read this book. Shannyn has gained a new fan. I really enjoyed reading this book. Miles might be drifting through life and might not know what he wants to do with his life but the minute he met Tess he was done for. Miles might not have planned to fall for Tess and her kids but once he realizes that they are a package deal, he will stop at nothing to be part of their lives. One Night With A Millionaire is a must read! ***Received this ARC by NetGalley as an exchange for an honest review.

Great to see an experienced couple fall in love One Night with a Millionaire is the first book in Shannyn Schroeder's Daring Divorcees series. I must admit, this book took a little bit of time to really capture my attention. I wasn't really excited about how Tess was looking for a one night stand(must have missed that in the book blurb) with Miles. However as Miles pursued her I enjoyed how the plot moved. I especially liked that the main characters were mature adults and the storyline reflected the challenges of life as a single mom. I think there was personal growth on both Tess and Mile's part that made the story more interesting. I also thought the secondary characters of family and friends rounded out the story well. I definitely am interested in reading the next book in this series when it comes out. I received an advance reader copy via Netgalley.

Loved this story! Just jump right in and hold on! Tess is a single mom, a little older and seriously needs just one night. One night without any strings and at the (no pressure here) urging of her friends decides to jump in with both feet. She meets Miles who is a little younger and doesn't understand the word No or one night only. I loved these two! It's the perfect romance with no angst and totally relatable characters and it hits all the happy buttons. Watching these two maneuver their way through their relationship and Miles fitting in with her bunch was perfect. Shannyn's writing is stellar and it's worth a second read. *arc from NetGalley and Entangled for an honest review*

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I am totally in love with her writing. This book captured my attention from the moment I started reading it. This book is about Tess and Miles. Tess is a divorced mom with three kids who really does not get a lot of help from her ex-husband. She is a very strong organized woman who always like to be in control. Miles still does not know what he really wants to do with this life. He lives his life really one moment to the next not really thinking about the future. Then he meets Tess. Tess makes him want things in life that he never really wanted before. Tess is really afraid to let Miles get to close to her and her kids because she fears being let down and worst of all hurting her children. This book is just such a great romance book with just the right amount of drama thrown in to keep you on your toes. Tess's children are really great and reading how they interact with their mom and Miles is such fun. The other divorcee's in Tess's group are a hoot. I cannot wait to see where this series heads next. Thanks Net Galley. I voluntarily reviewed this book in exchange for an honest review.

How wonderfully refreshing and fun it was to read a great romance between slightly older characters. This one gives us the story of hard working single mom Tess Howland, a woman with no time or energy for dating. Once a year though she lets herself cut loose for one night of fun and passion. This year that comes in the arms of Miles Prescott. He's a fun loving millionaire known for his no strings approach to relationships. Yet for Miles one taste of Tess is never going to be enough. Now he just needs to convince her he's in it for the long haul and worth taking a risk for. Great fun read that I thoroughly enjoyed. I definitely recommend it.

Tess Howland, is a divorcee and mother of three children. She works two jobs to support herself and her children along with the child support from her ex-husband. Lately she has spent so much time taking care of others that she has forgotten how to take care of herself. That will change when she attends a gala event and meets millionaire Miles Prescott. Miles is all about fun and wants to have fun with Tess. After their first night together, Miles realizes that he needs more than one night or a fling, he wants to spend time with her and maybe her children? The sex is amazing and Miles has no intention of giving up on Tess. Miles has never been around children and he will have to learn to accommodate their needs in to his life. Will Tess relax and trust Miles to be in her life…her children’s lives? I very much enjoyed this romance between somewhat older adults with young children added in to the mix. I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to give an honest review. (by paytonpuppy)

This is a sexy and fun romance that has Tess, a single mom of three, having a fun escape with Miles, a wealthy playboy. When their night of fun has the potential for something more, neither is sure what it means or how to manage it. The only thing Tess is sure of is that she doesn't need a man-child in her life and no one will hurt her kids. I enjoyed this book and, while primarily the POV was Tess's, I also enjoyed Miles' perspective and how he approached trying to date a mom of three and how he could fit into their lives. This is an entertaining novel that fans of the genre will love. The author is new to me and I'm looking forward to reading more of her books.
