Over-forty, single mom Tess Howland's life is all about caring for other people. Indulging in a one night stand is just what she needs. She doesn't expect to meet anyone she would introduce to her kids, especially not some rich playboy who acts like a big kid himself. Even if he keeps giving her the best sex of her life.

Loved this story! Just jump right in and hold on!
Tess is a single mom, a little older and seriously needs just one night. One night without any strings and at the (no pressure here) urging of her friends decides to jump in with both feet. She meets Miles who is a little younger and doesn't understand the word No or one night only. I loved these two! It's the perfect romance with no angst and totally relatable characters and it hits all the happy buttons.

Tess Howland, the divorced heroine here, knows how to bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan, folks. She works tirelessly as a nurse juggling multiple side jobs to keep her bills paid and more importantly, her three children happy and healthy. The latter often involving dealing with a clueless, doctor ex-husband, who claims to care but not stepping up in all the ways that count. I’d like to tap Tess on the shoulder and remind her she should swallow her pride and accept more help. Whether th ...more

I am glad I chose to read One Night with a Millionaire, written by Shannyn Schroeder! Having Tess, a woman in her forties as the lead character was quite refreshing! Sometimes it is nice to read something that is more relevant to my life. As a divorced mom of three, Tess and already have so much in common. (Check, check, check, and check! ) Tess works hard as a nurse and juggling motherhood and she decides to indulge in a one night stand.

Miles seems like a dream come true- is he perfect or simp

Synopsis and the title were very tempting and I had to read this one even this is my first book by Shannyn Schroeder.
It is an interesting story that kept me glued to my kindle until I've finished reading. Writing stile is pretty nice and the has a nice flow through the story and has a happy ending. Perfect reading material between heavier books. I'm looking forward of reading next book by this author
DNF at 10%.

Tess Howland is a single mother and a nurse, attending the annual fundraiser ball to garner funds for her patients. MIles Prescott is a millionaire . with a match-making mother, forced to accompany his mother to the ball since his father died.

I love a Cinderella romance and a single mother with a millionaire? Sign me up. Unfortunately, the little I read made Tess sound like a woman desperate for a one-night stand with literally anyone on her one night of freedom. When she talked about

I always love when a favorite authors starts something new. I really enjoy books by Shannyn Schroeder and couldn't want for this one. It wasn't just the fact that she was going to have a new book out that excited me so much. No, it was what this whole publishing line is about.

Entangled Publishing's new August line is about more mature people, ones in the thick of their lives, not just starting out.

5 Star Review of One Night With The Millionaire by Shannyn Schroeder (Daring Divorces #1)

I thoroughly enjoyed One Night With The Millionaire. Perhaps because the heroine is a little older; I’m not sure. The writing was great and I found myself diving right in and I couldn’t put the book down. From the first to the last chapter I was hooked.

Tess is a single mom of three kids. She has been divorced for a few years, yet never really dates. The only time she lets loose is once a year at the Saint Marks Gala. She works the crowd for funds for her department and then finds her one night of fun.
Miles is a bored playboy. He hates going to these fundraisers, especially since his father died a year ago. But tonight he must be strong and be there for his mother. Especially for this fundraiser. This was his father’s favorite fundraiser. So he

I wanted this book to be a lot better than it was in actuality, this was a story of a single mom who meets a rich guy, insists on having sex with him every time they meet. Even though the story really gives little reason for it he falls madly in love and she is so "I can take care of any problems" that she is really not that likable to the reader IMHO.

I am sure the author wanted to portray a strong woman who has had a few hard times and now is making her own way in the world but what she gives u

This is a sexy and fun romance that has Tess, a single mom of three, having a fun escape with Miles, a wealthy playboy. When their night of fun has the potential for something more, neither is sure what it means or how to manage it. The only thing Tess is sure of is that she doesn't need a man-child in her life and no one will hurt her kids.

I enjoyed this book and, while primarily the POV was Tess's, I also enjoyed Miles' perspective and how he approached trying to date a mom of three and how h

I've received a ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Seeing all the great reviews, I really REALLY wanted to like this but unfortunately, this fell flat to me. I don't know if it was the storyline, characters or content but I just wasn't feeling it.and I became bored by it within the first few hours. Just not my cup of tea.

I'm so glad Entangled started their August line--"older" heroes and heroines FTW :)

I enjoyed One Night with the Millionaire, the first book in Ms. Schroeder's new Daring Divorcees series. It's a Cinderella fantasy story at its best--a single mother meets her millionaire at a charity gala, and their "one night" turns into more as Miles (slowly) decides being a playboy isn't what he wants anymore and Tess (very, very slowly) readjusts her all-about-e

Tess is the momma bear to end all momma bears. She is devoted to her children and tries not to rely on anyone. She usually gives herself one night to be about her and when she meets Miles and things get steamy, she vows it is going to be a one time thing. The only problem with that is Miles and his wants. Never one to settle down, Miles is surprised when he can't get Tess out of his head.

At this point I'm 63% into the story. Anyway, I'm still plowing through and loving the story far. I will have an updated review later this evening tomorrow morning. Anyway, I love the fact that it' not your typical romance. I mean who wouldn't want a night with a millionaire. We have Tess who is trying to do it all, she's a mom, works real hard and trying to put her kids first. She doesn't really have time for dating. She meets Miles he's amazing. Seriously, he's willin

This was a good book. Tess Howard is a nurse and a divorce mother with three children. The one night a year that she dresses up and wants to have a good time is the hospitals gala, and charity ball. She also hopes maybe she can get lucky with a decent man for just one night and be a woman for a few hours and not a mom. I find that this is what most wife’s want from theirs husbands a date night if you will, to feel special. So why can’t she feel special for one night. This night she meets Miles P ...more

Single parents are all the rage but what I loved about this was it’s a single mum in her forties trying to make ends meet, keeping her three children happy and healthy as well as trying to appease the ex husband.
Tess has been divorced for a few years and dating has never been on the cards until she meets Miles at the Saints Marks fundraiser, her job is to work the floor raising funds for her department but when she comes across the hot bored playboy the last thing she expects is a wild night of

Tess Howland's a single mom in her 40’s with a demanding job as a nurse.

Miles Prescott is a millionaire, good time with no strings type of guy.

Until these two meet and then all bets are off. She’s thinking he’s a one night stand. A best sex of my life type of 1 night stand! He’s thinking she’s gorgeous and one night stand. As it turns out, it becomes much more than he could ever have imagined. I understood why Tess was hesitant

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I am totally in love with her writing. This book captured my attention from the moment I started reading it. This book is about Tess and Miles. Tess is a divorced mom with three kids who really does not get a lot of help from her ex-husband. She is a very strong organized woman who always like to be in control. Miles still does not know what he really wants to do with this life.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
This book is definitely not a light read, and not for younger readers. It was so real that I felt myself nodding at certain thoughts the characters were having, and relating to the situations they were in. Maybe that's more of a reflection of my age and what stage of life I'm in, but it was completely honest. Tess and Miles could literally be the next middle-aged couple you see walking down the road, looki

This is the start of a good thing. A series that addresses the lives of mature couples trying to juggle ex-lives, new-lives and children is sure to be a hit. Tess and Miles are a couple that start out thinking they are only having one night together and end up with a lifetime. The author accurately describes the angst a mother feels, under normal circumstances, bringing a new partner into her children’s lives. She explores the dilemmas that divorced parents often struggle with such as loneliness ...more

One Night With The Millionaire by Shannyn Schroeder is one of those precious trinkets I read when I am in between books or have just finished some heavy reading. One Night.. is a nice romantic short read, I finished it in one sitting and it is one of my guilty pleasure genres. I am not a die hard romantic but I do like reading romance novels from time to time.

The plot is pretty common, single mom of multiple kids slogging to make ends meet , meets cute /hot rich guy , wants to date but is resist

Single mom of three, works two jobs and not afraid to ask for the big O. Single rich playboy, new woman for each event, doesn't really see kids in the future....until a night with Tess. It's instant chemistry for these two but it takes lots of convincing by Miles for Tess to take a chance on love. She's a great mom putting the kids first but the kids are rooting for mom to find love. Fun and flirty with sexy times. Always a pleasure to read a Schroeder book, excited for the new series.
