When it comes to Romance novels or novellas of any kind I am not usually one of the first to volunteer and pick up the choice to read them for the much needed reviews. I tend to lean more towards the full horror or paranormal and yes I’m know to be an avid read of Zombie books. Love them. But I digress. I find myself the more I read of the 1 night stand romance series the more I love them a little they hold a very nice mix of not only back story an filling in for the characters, but as well the tantalizing temptations of romance, sexual tension and even a fairytale ending at times. Giving everyone the just what they need in that short bit of time. I have often found myself even wishing that some of the stories with the couples would progress more and see more that happens in saying Ghost of a chance was in no way any less than the others that I have read.

Calling her friend who hooks her up with the information to Madam Evangeline’s 1 Night stand Dating service Susannah is whisked off on her trip with the promise of one very magical night.
