Turning down a billet at Mike’s Place in Dallas, Sergeant A.J. Turner left Iraq for Freewill, Wyoming with one goal in mind—to forget the last five years. Trading his MARPATS for jeans and his cover for a cowboy hat, he plans to work his ranch and pray the green grass, tall trees, and sweet mountains can wash away the taste of the desert.

The last thing he expected was a re

This is a 1Night Stand story so I already know three things about it, it will be a nice quick read, it will have a interesting story and the characters will be engaging!It is always a pleasure to read one of these stories!

Another sexy marine 1Night Stand story! I really enjoy this series and the thought the author puts into the story. This is a sweet story of two people coming together in a unique way, even though they probably would have gotten around to each other eventually!

This is a Western Escape romance, complete with a handsome, hard working cowboy (former Marine) and Freewill’s new librarian. Both had their own reason for signing up for Madame Eve’s 1 Night Stand service. During a drunken night Sheri develops a list of qualities that no man can surely meet – knowing she isn’t ready to open her heart again after a failed marriage; even for a single night. A.J. joined the service as part of a pact with his unit; to help with the transition back into civilian ...more

Another great 1NS/Always a Marine story! I want more NOW!!!

AJ is a Marine AND a Cowboy? Yes please!!!

Sheri is a woman who was screwed over by her ex and the local librarian. Apparently guys have fantasies about librarians.

I was so involved in the story when it ended I was not anticipating it! I KNOW it was meant to be a short story but I want more.

Decadent Publishing gives readers exactly what they want with their 1Night Stand series which are quick reads with likable characters reaching for their HEA after a steamy one-night stand.

Sarah's Review:
Oh how I love cowboys and Marines and this one gave me both! This story is also part of 3 different Decadent Publishing's Series: Always a Marine, 1Night Stand and Western Escape.

AJ is a Marine who, despite the offer from Capt. Luke Dexter (Always a Marine 1) to work at Mike's Place, returns home to Freewill, Wyoming after serving 7 years in the Marines. He comes home to run his ranch and build his life where he grew up. He forgets that he was suppose to sign up for Madame Eve's

Sometimes putting a wish, a want or a dream out there can bring some unexpected results. When Sheri signs up for 1NightStand she has no idea the man of her dreams was going to waltz right into her life and sweep her off her feet and right into bed.

A J and his fellow marines all signed up with Madame Eve as a way to get back into the swing of dating when they returned to civilian life. Going home means a lot of work for A J, getting the ranch back up to snuff requires all his attention… until a p

"The Marine Cowboy" was able to combine two ideas of the "dream" guy, a Marine and a cowboy, and came up with AJ Turner. ^.^ Then you've got Sheri Vaughn, a librarian with a hint of naughtiness. You bring the two together and you've got a sweet and sultry story.

It was nice to have a story of a guy who wanted to go back to his roots and re-discover everything he had left behind and was missing while he was in the Marines. It's as if the cowboy in him never really left and now neither will the Mar

A.J. has finished his contract with the Marines and is heading home to Freewill, Wyoming. A.J. runs into Sheri and there is an instant attraction but neither of them react to it.
Madame Eve’s exclusive 1Night Stand service is being used by all the Marine's in his unit and they have signed A.J. up for the service while he is overseas and activates it when he returns home unbeknownst to him. I think Madame Eve has a 100% record of happily matched couples because it doesn't seem like an

Liked it! Storyline was fast paced, interesting and hot. AJ's a marine but a cowboy at heart. Coming home to his ranch gives him the peace he needed to try to forget what he has seen. Sheri moves to Freewill, Wyoming after divorcing her crappy cheating husband. They had their own reason for signing up for Madame Eve's 1 Night Stand service. Enjoyed their interaction and chemistry.

This was a quick read but not really something I would read again. I was pretty quick but just didn't really get my attention. There was some steaminess and character development, but overall it just wasn't really my type of book. I would probably recommend this to someone who enjoys contemporary, cowboy, or marine romance.

Coming from the super hot ménage life and love story (the book before this), this one kinda paled for me. It's more like a 3.5.

A hot ex-marines cowboy who seemed to have wanted to be cut off from the rest of the world meets a divorced and sexy librarian. For some reason, it felt like the marines' background story was lacking in some way.

I really enjoyed the sizzle between AJ and Sheri. Her shyness and playfulness were endearing; his confidence and masculinity … sexy. Together they were yummy!

Another fabulous addition to the Always a Marine series!

After reading this one, you have to wonder why these people signed up for the service. I have a feeling that they wouldn't have needed to at all. With the small town and their instant awareness they would have found their way to each other.
