Book Description: Eleanor is tired of being a spinster no one ever notices. Life for a twenty-six year old unwed woman in 1811 is dreadfully dull. She can’t have an affair at the risk of ruining her family’s reputation…unless she finds a way to do so without the slightest risk of discovery. Dare she travel two hundred years into the future to have a 1Night stand with the help of Madame Eve?
Thomas struggles daily to move on after the death of his beloved countess, but being the most highly sought after bachelor of the ton doesn’t allow him much privacy to do so. All he yearns for is a night of lust and fun, with a woman who can make him remember what it feels like to be swept away by passion. Traveling two hundred years into the future seems to be the perfect solution for both discretion and ease.
What will happen when they discover they didn’t escape their lives at all, but merely found each other?
My Review: A cleverly set 18+ erotic novella in the 1Night Stand series, this book turns the premise of the one night stand on its ear. An earl, recently widowed turns to the 1Night stand agency and its proprietor, Madame Eve, to escape the conventions and constrictions of his Victorian-era life. The solution is simple – time travel 200 years in the future to ‘scratch the itch’ so difficult to assuage in his life.
Spinster daughter of a Viscount, unmarried and on the shelf, 26 year old Eleanor has battled with unrequited love from afar, and never known the touch of a man. Enter Madame Eve and her time-traveling wrist watch and Eleanor can travel 200 years in the future to have an experience to treasure the rest of her life.
Written with a clever set of twists, engaging dialogue and steamy sex scenes, this is a short novella that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Who can’t spend an hour with the author’s clear writing style, descriptive manner and intermingling of regency settings with the modern and current? It is well worth the reading time, and a story that is complete of itself- but creates characters that you want to see more of.
I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review with Full Moon Bites tour. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Diane Alberts has always been a dreamer with a vivid imagination, but it wasn’t until 2011 that she put her pen where her brain was, and became a published author. Since receiving her first contract offer, she has yet to stop writing. Though she lives in the mountains, she really wishes she was surrounded by a hot, sunny beach with crystal clear water. She lives in Northeast Pennsylvania with her four kids, a husband, and a Senegal parrot. In the rare moments when she’s not writing, she can usually be found hunched over one knitting project or another.
She is a multi-published, bestselling author with Entangled Publishing and Decadent Publishing. She has, as of this date, four books with Entangled Publishing, and five books with Decadent Publishing. Her February release with Entangled Publishing, ON ONE CONDITION, hit #18 on the Barnes and Noble Bestseller List. Her goal is to write so many fantastic books that even a non-romance book fan will know her name.
