Pamela Kimball’s birthday present, a 1Night Stand adventure, promises to jump start her life, put a new man in her bed, and help her forget her past. Unfortunately, movie-buff Pam’s Pirates of the Caribbean fantasy takes an alarming wrong turn when she’s abandoned on a not quite deserted island—with ex-husband Roger Ware.
Forced by hunger to accept Roger’s offer of dinner, Pam realizes the geek she married has transformed into one of the most charming, sexiest men she’s ever met. His newfound confidence—and hot body—re-kindles old fires. A simple kiss leads Roger to challenge her to discover how much his lovemaking skills have improved, leaving Pam torn between self-preservation and burning desire.
With time running out before they’re rescued, Pam must decide if her heart can survive the consequences of becoming Roger’s “almost” perfect 1Night Stand.
Madam Eve’s One Night Stand is where all your fantasies can be realized, no matter what they may be.
Divorced for five years and celibate for two, Pamela wanted a pirate adventure along the lines of Pirates of the Caribbean. Instead of being ravished by Captain Jack Sparrow, she wanted to have an unforgettable night with Will Turner (or maybe Orlando Bloom!).
Her friend Sue helped her set up her adventure with Madame Eve as a birthday gift to her, and off she went to the Castillo Resort in Miami. Excited beyond all reason Pamela couldn’t wait to board the boat that would start her adventure. Instead of being wrapped in the arms of Orlando, she was unceremoniously hauled off the boat, placed in a dinghy and marooned on a desert island. Furious and thinking she was alone, she turns around and is faced with none other than her ex husband Roger. Of all the people in the world why was her "Pirate" her ex husband, and why wasn’t he dressed like one?
After reading the blurb for this story I knew this would be a fun read, especially since she had divorced Roger because the sex was boring. She referred to sex with her ex as being ‘Pee-Wee’s Big Top Adventure with the good bits taken out.’ That had me chuckling which made me look forward to reading more of this delightful story.
This is a short story but it had characters that I liked and wanted to see back together. Everything to Pamela was like a movie, and all the movies mentioned I had seen so I could truly relate to what the character was describing. Personally, though, I would prefer Captain Jack to Will Turner, but that’s just me.
