Cole Adams is convinced that long term relationships just aren’t for him. He’s been married and divorced three times - why? Because he picks women who are just out looking for a good time and tries to make something real out of those encounters.
Jill and Cole have been fighting a mutual attraction for months. While Cole has turned sexual gratification into an art form, Jill, at thirty-three years old, is still a virgin. Seeing Cole in all his naked glory indulging in carnal pleasures with various women has Jill more than curious about what it would be like to satisfy her cravings with Cole. It’s just too bad that she really isn’t his type.
Watching his performance on the balcony turns her on in ways that she never anticipated and has her thinking about sex in a whole new light. Of course she stays well hidden in the darkness of her own apartment or so she thought. She thinks that Cole and his flavor of the night have gone into his apartment but then she hears a knock on her back door. All Cole says is "Next time join us, brown eyes." He’s aware that she’d watched him having sex and he has no intention of pretending otherwise. He’s wanted Jill ever since he first saw her and now he’s going to do everything in his power to ensure that he finally gets her in his bed. She’s not like the women he’s used to, but maybe she’s exactly the type of woman he needs in his life.
ONE NIGHT ON A BALCONY is smoldering hot from the very first page. Samantha Lucas infuses emotional turmoil, tingle your toes sex, and genuinely likeable characters so that readers are quickly sucked into this storyline and sweat their way through every lust riddled page. In addition to Cole and Jill’s story, there’s a single father in this story who really captured my interest. I’d love to see a follow up story for him. It’s obvious from the comments made in this story that he had a wonderful marriage and genuinely loved his wife. I’d like to know that he gets a happily ever after and that Hailey, his daughter, gets a mother figure in her life. This is a wonderful addition to Samhain’s MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S STEAM stories and it’s a story you’ll want to be sure to keep handy - for inspiration.
