    Perfect Love story!Perfect love story of how two dedicated successful business professionals finally finding love when they least expected it. The reality of over stressed and dealing with the hustle and bustle of the fame that comes with being at the top sometimes attracts people to you for all the wrong reason. If it is not someone only wanting to be with you because of your status then it is someone who stays away because they feel inferior, intimidated, and unworthy to be with which in turn makes it hard to find someone who really appreciates the person for who they really are on an emotional and physical level or even hard finding someone to actually love.The story is captured beautifully and had me smiling as Simmi and Lars found their heated desire stronger than they ever dreamed of experiencing. Simmi was truly princess like and Lars a man who was built for satisfying that one special woman who melted at his every touch. I loved the ending as Lars took the stand to stop Simmi from walking away from him and to take a chance on them as a couple instead of going back to the old routine of having no one who completely understood them on that emotional and physical level. My heart truly melted in awe at the happy ever after.Great read!

    It always amazes me how Zee Monodee handles deep POV with such skill and dexterity, it's seamless and powerful. I've read all of her books so far and each one keeps getting better. This is a simple, short story - but the characters jump at you because they are so real. What happens in this story could well happen to you :). It's just that the writing is beyond excellent and this little tale stays with you. Please get this book.

    JenRen’s Review – Once Upon a Stormy Night, Zee MonodeePublished: May 26, 2012Publisher: Decadent Publishing LLC.Page Count: 41Word Count: 11kASIN: B0086OQ6IMGenre: contemporary, interracialContent: m/fBlurb: British billionaire Lars Rutherford came to the tiny island of Mauritius to take over directorship of his best friend's shipping company. He's not here for anything but the job, or – to the chagrin of the many matchmaking society mamas in the country – to find the 'right woman' for him.Corporate legal affairs specialist Simmi Moyer is rich, beautiful, successful, and climbing the executive ladder with tremendous speed. She's got it all – or does she? Mauritian society shuns her for being single and childless, and nothing she accomplishes will ever be enough.Lars isn't looking for a woman; Simmi isn't looking for a man. Both just want one night to forget their precarious position in this traditional, culture-driven society.The tempest brewed by uncalled-for yearning in their hearts when they meet, and the desire for something more substantial than one night of pleasure, builds between them, while outside, a real-life cyclone storms on the island and ensconces them in a world where only the two of them exist.Before the night is over, both Lars and Simmi will have to decide whether each will walk out the next morning alone, or if they can put themselves on the line to step out together.Simmi is very tired of always being alone, and is very much over being looked at as a conquest. When all she wants is a man to love her for her, not what she does in her career.Contacting Madame Eve at 1 Night Stand seems the only way she’ll ever get close to getting a seductive night with a man. Simmi requests that there be no names, because she just wants to be a woman.Lars is also in the same world, career wise as Simmi. They haven’t met face to face, but he is definitely aware of who she is.When he tries to introduce himself, Simmi cuts him off and reminds him ‘no names’. Simmi is all woman in Lars’ eyes, and he treats her with reverence as they take each other to new heights. Lars is thinking she is the ONE for him, but doesn’t know how to convince her. As the sheets are fired up inside, a storm begins to rage outside. When both are exhausted and in need of a recharge, they fall asleep. But Lars wakes to an empty bed…Will he be able to convince Simmi that he sees her for a woman, or will Simmi walk away?Another super hot encounter in the 1 Night Stand Series! A definite must read!!Author Bio:Stories about love, life, relationships...in a melting-pot of culture.Zee is an author who grew up on a fence - on one side there was modernity and the global world, on the other there was culture and traditions. Putting up with the culture for half of her life, one day she decided she'd stand tall on her wall and dip toes every now and then into both sides of her non-conventional upbringing.From this resolution spanned a world of adaptation and learning to live on said wall. The realization also came that many other young women of the world were on their own fence.This particular position became her favorite when she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of writing - her heroines all sit 'on a fence', whether cultural or societal, in today's world or in times past, and face dilemmas about life and love.Hailing from the multicultural island of Mauritius, Zee is a degree holder in Communications Science. She is married, mum to a tween son, & stepmum to a teenage lad.

    Even the toughest person have their own vulnerabilities and weaknesses. The same goes for the two main characters in Once Upon A Stormy Night. Lars has been in Mauritius for about eight months on a job assignment and the culture there made it difficult for him to be in the company of woman. His friend, Magnus, enlightened him that he needed a shag and even went to the trouble of contacting Madame Evangeline's 1Night Stand Service! Simmi is the Vice-President of Legal Affairs of the island's largest conglomerate. She has contacted Madame Evangeline's 1Night Stands Service on a whim since she doesn't have any prospects in matrimony and her age is catching up with her.It was an instant attraction for the both of them. Simmi refuses to identify themselves and prefers the anonymity. What she doesn't know is that Lars actually knows who she is! For some reasons, Lars made Simmi feels safe and does she dare to expect more out of their one night of passion? When Lars wakes up the next morning, she is no longer beside him. Did she leave? You'll have to read the book to find out what actually happens next!Once Upon A Stormy Night is a short romantic read. Readers who like to read short romance story will definitely enjoy this title. The author did a good job in telling both characters' story. I find myself actually wanting to read more about Magnus though. He seems like an interesting character. Looking forward to reading more works from the author.Disclosure: I received a review copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Madame Eve strikes again when Lars Rutherford gets setup by a friend for a one night stand with no strings attached, after seven and a half months, Lars hopes the night will bring the relief he needs.Simmi Moyer has her own reasons for needing a no strings one night stand, especially the looming thirty four birthday rapidly approaching. Wanting complete anonymity she doesn't expect to have an instant connection with the handsome man.The 1Night Stand stories are fun, the only issue you they are like teasers for a story that will never develop. There quickies and not a lot of time for character development. While the story was a lot of fun, I wanted more.
