You can’t avoid fate…

Eliza DeMatteo returns to her hometown of Las Vegas on vacation knowing her matchmaking older brother is probably going to try and set her up with his best friend. But Eliza already knows plenty about sexy cowboy Christian Yerrick, the man who crushed her heart when they were kids. In fact, she’s determined to avoid Chris completely…until she runs into his truck on the Las Vegas freeway.

Chris has his own misgivings about seeing Eliza. His lingering feelings for her trigger all of his issues with relationships. Especially long-distance ones, which is the only kind of relationship they’d ever have. Still, there’s no reason they can’t enjoy New Year’s Eve together. But when the fireworks between them burn hotter than the Vegas Strip, Chris and Eliza know they only have one night to get it right. Because this time, what doesn’t happen in Vegas could haunt them forever…


"What a sweet and perfect book One Night In Vegas was! Although it was short it was packed with everything you would expect in a full novel. This one is definitely a keeper." -- Love Between the Sheets

"C. M. Stone has managed to cram a fair amount of second-chance loving into this enjoyable little novella."--Claire Robinson, Goodreads

"The story was sweet and sexy at the same time. Short but not lacking in any way. It's an easy read on an afternoon between chores (yes, it's very short but well worth it). It's a 5 Star Jackpot from this reader!"--Jessica Alcazar, Goodreads

About the author

CM Stone

A native to Southern Nevada, C.M. Stone found happiness as an adult living a rural life in the frigid northwoods of Wisconsin. She wrote her first book at the age of seven--selling it door to door--and decided then and there that she would never accept any other career. Though she didn't know it at the time, that first book was romantic suspense. A lifelong love for romance novels set in at an early age, despite the fact that Cee considers herself possibly the least romantic person on earth. When she's not writing, Cee is busy wrangling critters and inventing new recipes.
