Review ~ One Night in Edinburgh by Charlotte Howard



BLURB:


Chloe Shade has travelled to Edinburgh to meet up with a potential client, and has just twenty-four hours to convince them to sign her contract. But when she meets the delicious Ethan, he proves to be so much more than an enticing distraction. It’s not long before Chloe has some life changing decisions to make, and less than a day to make them.




One Night in Edinburgh


by Charlotte Howard




 

Excerpt:



They wandered down The Royal Mile. Edinburgh Castle with all its magnificence

stood proudly on its rocky pedestal, looking down over the city. Cobbled roads

spilled down the hill, between rows of shops and museums, all proud of their Scottish heritage. Colourful lights flickered against the ageing walls. Tourists and locals blended together as they searched for food and fun.



The sun had not yet reached the horizon and shot the sky with bullets of red and

orange over a darkening background. A talented artist, the burning star had swiped

his brush over the blue canvas, leaving an array of varying shades of purple above

his head.



There were no clouds to hide the twinkling of Venus as she radiated her beauty

over the earth. One-by-one, each star peeked out from its daytime blanket and

smiled down on them. As a kid, he’d believed that each star was an angel, a loving

soul, who was watching them and keeping all the children safe. Sometimes he

wished that he still held that naivety.



He hadn’t meant to pull her closer to him, but the vivid memories of childhood

that punctured his brain forced his grip to tighten. She stopped mid-stride, and he

stopped too. They turned to face each other. He could almost taste the wine and

chocolate that danced on her breath.



A heavy ache weighed in his chest. In the morning she would be gone, and it

would be painful to say goodbye to her.




British author, Charlotte Howard, was born in Oman and spent much of the first part of her life flitting between Oman, Scotland, and England. Now settled in Somerset, Charlotte lives with her husband, two children, and growing menagerie of pets.

During what little spare time she has, Charlotte enjoys reading and writing (of course), spending time with her family, and watching action movies whilst eating curry and drinking tea. Charlotte is an active member of Yeovil Creative Writers Group.


   
My Thoughts:

This is the 7th book in the City Nights series. I haven't read any of the others and I had no problem jumping into this one with both feet.

So much happened in One Night! This book was super hot right from the start. ;-) 

Chloe has to convince a client to sign with her and she only has twenty four hours to do it.

She meets Ethan and what a distraction he turns out to be. ;-)

You'll have to read this quickie to find out if she gets the client to sign, if she ends up with Ethan or if fate has something else in store for her. lol! No Spoilers! Sorry. ;-)

The scenery was beautiful and the pace was pretty quick. I really enjoyed it.

There was some mystery, charismatic characters, sex, and romance.

I received an ecopy in exchange for my honest opinion. I thought it was a really good quickie!
