Emily Quinn's ~ One Wicked Night Excerpt & Giveaway

Angel Jones is a career-driven woman at the top of her game with a big problem: a wickedly handsome boss. It is impossible to get him out of her mind, so her friends talk her into using someone else’s invitation to an exclusive dating service. It’s a dare she can’t resist.

Fernando Durante knows lusting after someone at work is not an option. He has managed to avoid direct contact with her for years, but thanks to a recent promotion, the witty goddess reports directly to him. When a friend emails him an invitation to an exclusive dating service, Fernando accepts against his better judgment.

Will Angel and Fernando let their hearts guide them?

You can add One Wicked Night to your to-read list on Goodreads.

Fernando adjusted the towel around his waist. “How did you get this info?”

“It just appeared in my email.”

“Please tell me it didn’t come through your spam.”

Josh chuckled. “Would it matter? We’re talking Elite Classified Online Dating. You know how exclusive they are. No one can get in their site without an invitation.”

“Why don’t you use it?”

“Nah. I’m not looking for an ever after.”

“What makes you think I am?”

“Nothing. Are you?”

“No.” Fernando walked to his desk and sat down as he turned on his laptop. “What makes you think it’ll work?”

“I don’t. I’m trying to get you to have an adventure, which will keep you busy thinking of something other than Angel.” Josh paused. “Look at it this way: you show up, if you don’t like what you see, you pretend you’re in the wrong place and leave. It’s simple.”

“Easier said than done.” Fernando scrolled through his emails.

Josh laughed. “You’ve got nothing to lose.”

“Isn’t the invitation addressed to you anyway?”

“So? It’s not like Elite has the time to sit there and make sure whoever they invite is actually the one completing the application. I’m sure I’m not the only one to pass on the invitation.”

Fernando leaned back in his chair and clicked the link to Elite’s site. “Yeah, yeah.”

“Tell me how things work out, all right?”

A black page displayed on his laptop. “Hey, Josh. I gotta go.” Fernando didn’t wait for his friend to reply before disconnecting. Narrowing his eyes, he leaned forward.

Welcome to Elite Classified Online Dating. Do you have an invitation?

If the invitation attached to the email counted as one, he did. He typed yes.

What’s your secret username?

He switched to the email Josh sent him to look up the username, and then went back to the page. Tempt_Me.

Excellent. What’s your secret password?

Fernando pulled up the email once more to look up the password. At_Midnight.

“Fantastic!” He jerked his head back, startled at the voice sounding from his laptop speakers. The word “Fantastic” danced around the page before settling in the middle of the screen. “Did you know our approach to dating is in bed? We at Elite strongly believe sexual compatibility is the way to a happily ever after. We dare you to dare us to find your perfect match. Do you dare?”

ONE WICKED NIGHT, a Contemporary Erotic Romance, is the first book in Emily Quinn’s Wicked Series.  You can purchase this 45 page steam filled book from these retailers: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Smashwords.  Here’s a little conversation with Fernando and Angel, just to pique your interest a little bit more.  Enjoy.

Fernando, what is your idea of perfect happiness?
He glances at Angel and reaches for her hand. “Being with the one you love and know she loves you back.”
Angel, do you still skip Fernando’s meetings at work?
She smiles. “I still try but he won’t let me.”
If there was anything you could’ve done differently, what would it be?
“I would’ve pursued Angel from the moment I met her. I have to admit waiting three years was a bit painful but she wouldn’t give me a break.” Fernando says.

 Angel palms his arm. “What’s a girl to do? I had to make him suffer a little.” She pauses. “All right, I’ll confess. Three years was too long a wait, why didn’t you do something?” She teases.
What did you enjoy most about your short stay in Capri, Italy?
“The secret gazebo. That was an unexpected surprise,” Angel says.
Fernando raises a brow. “Really? I thought it was me you’d enjoy the most.” He grins.
What are your plans in the near future?
“Taking a longer trip to Capri. Perhaps, even have our wedding there.” Fernando says.

 Angel turns to him, a look of surprise on her face. “I love the idea.”
