Part time diner waitress and hotel manager, Gwen’s days are filled with serving locals and making sure the sleepy back-road motel doesn’t have a crisis of epic proportions…like running out of clean towels. She’s a woman with a routine, a cleaning roster and that’s the way she likes it.

But Gwen is a woman with a past. A past which involves guns, knives and a whole lot of we...more

I was immediately drawn into this delightful short read that captured my fancy and tickled my funny-bone. Told from the heroine’s viewpoint with self-deprecating humor intermixed with confidence and saucy wit, Gwen is a character I could not help but to love. When a mysterious man enters the diner, Gwen is handed some unexpected fodder for her active imagination, but that hardly prepares her for the seductive and dangerous encounter to come. Ms. Carter certainly got my attention with this story,...more

* I received this ARC free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Gwen has had enough of the nomad life of a hunter. She has settled down in a small town where she works at the dinner and lives in a motel room rent free. She has convinced herself that she is happy with her new life, until the handsome stranger walked into the diner during her shift. She can’t get the stranger out of her fantasies, um mind.

Even now, Gwen is always in hunter mode when sh...more

I like this short story.
A former hunter who now works in at a dinner. When a sexy stranger walks in all her fantasies fill her head.
Funny, sexy and fast.
The main character has a fantastic sense of humor and reading what's going on in her mind was great.
Even though the paranormal element has a minimal appearance it was a good story.

I liked it. A short sexy encounter with steamy sex that leaves you wanting more. Definitely will read more by Mina Carter.

Nice sexy romp. Well written and easy flowing. For a short story the author was able to give a believeable story line, well believable for a paranormal anyway. I really enjoyed this story and would read more by this author.
Thrill of the Night is a short story about Gwen, an ex-monster hunter who now works as a waitress in a diner. When a mystery hunk walks into her diner, she doesn't know that she's going to find him injured and bleeding. She then learns that he's a monster hunter... just as she once was.

I wasn't a fan of this short story. I was a bit turned off by how much Gwen talks about the hotness of the stranger. I didn't feel the conflict or strength of the paranormal element in this story, either. I wish...more
One issue I had with the story and it was lack of backstory. It would have made it easier to follow along as things would suddenly come up. This does have stranger sex but as it is a paranormal I tend to give it more latitude compariable to a cont. or regency. The sex kinda of made sense but I did not get why the hero did so as there was not much written about his side of the story. All I read about was the heroine. I did not even realize that the hero had left after his encounter with the heroi...more

A very nice sexy short story!
