Mystery writer, Kara Keaton, moved to small town Stonebridge to start her life over after her husband's death. Between writing, renovating the hundred-year-old home she purchased, and trying to figure out how to keep the plants in her greenhouse alive, she stays busy. But not so busy that she doesn't enjoy her daily visits to the Plumber's Pub where the cheer of the town rings long and loud. And it certainly isn't a hardship to watch the stoic and sexy Ben Roberts behind the bar.

The steadiest of the siblings, Ben's love and pride in being part of his family's pub is palpable. He's a straight-shooter--when it's important--with a strong stature and golden eyes that show darker hints of what runs deep within him. And from the day he meets the mysterious Kara, he's a man who knows what he wants. He just hasn't found a way into her world. Yet.

With a spring storm barreling through the quaint New England town, Kara begins to let down her guard, and starts to understand that her heart truly is ready to love again.

SPECIAL NOTE TO READERS: Each book in the One Night Collection is a standalone novella, featuring new characters with a story all their own, that takes place over the course of one night. The exception to this is One Summer Night which features a fun roundup of all the main characters in the collection as they come together for a fabulous Fourth of July celebration.

That is cool, nice, steady Ben is interested in Kara!! Good for him, maybe that will help her write and feel better with life in general.

Awwww, happy family. He got the girl and the son that would look up to him.( no mention of Liam's mother in law 😉)
Ugh I adore your writing. It is superb. I love the characters already and they shine through in just this first paragraph. You have a gift for words!
I like this sentence...relates to the weather on Sydney right now 😥
