Please welcome Cate Masters to my blog to celebrate the 200 INS story from Decadent Publishing!

Happy 200th 1NS

One of my favorite things about writing 1Night Stand stories is the versatility. So far, I’ve written a contemporary, Tonight You Belong to Me; a fantasy, A Hard Day’s Knight; another contemporary, Homecoming; a futuristic with time travel back to the Eighties, Cinderella Dreams.

My most recent 1NS release, Sweet Revenge, is a contemporary with a not-so-sweet history. Will the heroine and hero find a sweet ending? You’ll have to read it to find out. ;)

The cool thing is, no matter which direction you take a 1NS, you can make it work. I’ve read so many paranormal, fantasy and contemporary 1NS, and loved them all. If it doesn’t have a forever ending, it might have the promise of one, and that’s just as good for me. Is it any wonder the 1NS series is so addicting? For me, as a writer and a reader.

One more contemporary 1NS is coming up for release from me – one with a bit of humor, The Ex Factor. Will it be the 200th? *gasp* No, I doubt it, but I’m still partying to celebrate. Congrats to Decadent on the wonderful success of the 1NS series!

I’ll give away one ebook of any of my 1NS titles to one commenter. Just tell me what type of stories you love best.

Sweet Revenge
Humbled by life and hungry for love…
From cheerleader to news anchor to…yoga instructor? After Zoe Golden lost everything she thought was important, she found the inner strength to pursue real happiness. The simple life provides everything she needs—except love. Once, long ago, she met a real man, but her insecurities made her deny her heart’s desires. Can Madame Eve find her a guy like the one who got away?

Bruised by rejection and determined to exact revenge…
The sculpted, successful  owner of a chain of fitness studios, Ty Hardin can have any woman he wants. Fifteen years and 150 pound weight loss, has changed him beyond recognition. Now the girl who crushed his heart teaches yoga in one of his facilities. Not for long. Before he fires her, he wants one night with her. Wants her to know what she missed out on. But will revenge still be as sweet the morning after, or will it leave a bitter aftertaste?

Zoe and Ty might just be the best thing that ever happened to each other—if they can avoid doing their worst…

What a fun post! I always enjoy visiting Cate's blog and she is such a wonderful writer. I agree that 1NS books can go a lot of different ways- I never thought about all the possibilities before!

I like all genres- but am partial to fantasy. :)

Aw thanks Jess, that's so sweet! :)

I love fantasy/paranormal too. But I love to change it up with contemporaries and historicals also!

Tari said...

I read everything, contemporary, historical, fantasy....I just love a good book.

I really like the idea of a hero who has lost a lot of weight. It's always the woman!!

Cate Masters said...

I'm the same way, Tari. :)

Barbara Elsborg said...

Ah women losing weight - written as I chomp my way through delicious coconut breakfast cereal. It does make a change for it to be the hero!
