If I haven't said so before, these 1NightStand series of books are a lot of fun covering all manner of people seeking partners with the ever knowing magical touch of matchmaker supreme Madame Eve (aka Madame Evangeline).
In SATIN SHEETS IN SPACE, the lesson to be learned is that a soul mate can be from space too, so if you don’t find the right mate here on Earth, don’t panic and just keep searching.
Danyka is working as the personal assistant to Josh Summers, film producer, and he gives her three tickets to the Kartha Studio’s charity ball, to go in his stead while he is on his honeymoon.
She is certain that nobody will ask her dance, because:
while she’d been granted womanly curves and a considerable bust, she towered over most men.
However, she still holds hope to find the one.
With her stature and blazing auburn hair, she always attracted unfavorable attention. Tonight, though, she wanted people to stare, and maybe, just maybe, her knight in shining armor would arrive to sweep her off her feet.
Just after she finishes her preparation for the ball, she sees a note from her boss’ wife telling her that they have arranged for her a date through a dating service called 1Night Stand and that she will meet her date at the ball.
I loved the way Danyka reacts to the note; Ms Jessica E. Subject unerringly pens the reactions of a real woman.
They had arranged a date for her? She restrained the urge to jump up and down and whoop in delight, blowing out a breath and remaining calm. Another part of her cringed. Was she so desperate she had to rely on a matchmaking service to find a man? A one-night stand at that?
Her gaze shifted to her nightstand, the drawer inside filled with vibrators, rubber dildos, and more. Oh yeah, that screamed desperation. All right, Eve, bring on a real man.
Volan and Galan, twin brothers who are galactic visitors from the Perrotian Galaxy, are not seeing eye-to-eye on the whole dating thing. Volan is tired of a disappointing array of women, Unbeknownst to Volan, Galan is looking for Ms. Right. Galan decides its time to settle down and find the perfect woman. He decides to try the dating service 1Night Stand to find their ideal woman. Who'd have guessed he'd hit a home run on his first attempt? When he meets Danyka at the ball, he know she is the one for both of them. But can he convince his brother to settle down too? Volan at first believes his brother has simply found a woman to share for the night but Galan explains it's much more than that.
If Danyka agrees, they could both spend time getting to know her better. A night of fabulous sex with two space travelers is (literally) out of this world, but will Danyka accept leaving Earth to be with them and follow her heart?
Wow! It’s the only word that could describe what I feel at the end of the story. Ms Jessica E. Subject created wonderful and real characters and I love every single nuance. Along with a pleasing humor:
Did they grow them that small here?
and an interesting story, she made me lose myself in the wonderful tale. I am adding Jessica E. Subject to my favorite author’s list and I happily rate the book 5 stars
