Description from the publisher:
One night to be someone else.
Mila Day had plans. When her lover demands she give up her dreams to be a trophy wife, she leaves. Wanting to forget the wasted years, she ends up at a party in the next state, craving one wild night of abandon. It was exactly what she wanted.
No strings.
No names.
But it’s not exactly what she gets. Six years later, she’s a happy high school teacher with a beautiful daughter she will always Cherish.
No regrets.
Kyle Blake is a fireman who has been burned. He’s happy alone until he hears joyous laughter next door. He finds it hard to resist Mila, and her little girl, who steal his heart.
When pieces of her past surface, she’ll question everything.
Can they survive the truth?

This is a stand-alone novel / not part of a series.
Mila is going to just have a one-night-stand and forget the man who tried to crush her dreams.  She plans to have a night of anonymous lust with no strings and no regrets.  She
gets more than she bargains…Six years later she has a permanent reminder of her temporary passions, her daughter Cherish.  She has no regrets, except that she didn’t get his name.  Kyle hears laughter next door and meets the new high school science teacher and her daughter.  He quickly loses his heart to both of them, but when her past intrudes, will it tear them apart?
The story is a contemporary romance with just the right balance of turmoil and lust, mixed with family and friends that you have to love.  It is very well written with a great plot and well-developed characters.  I loved this story!
Who wouldn’t crush on Kyle?  He’s a hot hunk of fireman with a romantic heart and just enough imperfections to make him perfect.   One of those imperfections is his ex-girlfriend, “ho-bag Barbie.”  She is a jealous, spoiled brat without a clue that over means over.  Some of the funniest lines in the book are in reference to her.  Mila is a sweetheart with a heart of gold and a lovely mixture of tough and gentle.  Cherish is a five-year-old whirlwind in pink and I absolutely fell in love with her – especially the pink part!  The supporting characters are individualized with distinct personalities.
I have loved every one of Ms. Rivers’ paranormal stories.  In this one she has a devil, fae,  a phantom…. oh, wait!  Those are Halloween costumes (heheheh).  This is a contemporary romance – no shifters here - and proof that Ms. Rivers is not ready to be permanently labeled!  I sincerely hope she will give us more of her brand of love in this new-for-her genre.

Brandy L Rivers: I've always loved books, especially about monsters and magic, so I started writing. I'm working on a prequel and the next few books in the Others of Edenton series, and I
have a head full of stories to share.

I'm a stay at home mother with a wonderful husband who lets me write and write to my hearts content.
