Finley Cartwright is the queen of lost causes. That’s why she’s standing on a barstool trying to convince Friday night drinkers to donate money to a failing charity. Hitting on the guy on the next stool wasn’t part of her plan. Still, hot but grumpy venture capitalist Caleb Sherwood might just be her ticket to success.

Professional grifter and modern-day Robin Hood, Cal Sherwood is looking for a partner for a long con. Sexy Fin, doing her best Marilyn Monroe act for her cause, has the necessary qualifications. By the time he cuts her free, her charity would be thriving, and she’d have helped him charm billions out of arrogant, gullible marks to fund his social justice causes.

But just when he thinks he’s about to pull off the best con ever, his feisty new partner gets the upper hand.

Praise

“Can I swear? Please? %#@@^@^%$ it! This was $#@%ing awesome. So awesome I might have read until 4 am, again. Everything about this book was perfect - I wanted it to be longer only because I wanted to read more but really there was nothing left in the story to tell. Everything was spot on - good tone, quality writing, well paced, no loose ends, amusement, heat, a little bit of annoyance at the idiot male. Great work overall.” – 7000 Books and Counting Blog

“The build up of sexual tension was perfect and led in to some deliciously steamy moments. I also really liked the original premise for the story. It's unlike anything I've read lately.” – Courtney H., Goodreads

One Night Wife is one book that will definitely grab your attention simply because of it’s uniqueness and lovable characters.  It’s a sweet, funny, sexy slow burn romance that will have you rooting for the good guys.” –JGB, Goodreads

“This book is a stay-up-all-night-reading kind of story; I couldn’t put it down.” – Tanelle N., NetGalley

“It's witty and smart and I spent most of the book with absolutely no clue what was going to happen next.  The characters are so well developed and their chemistry and banter are refreshing and fun.” – Shea T., Goodreads

Any romance story I have read by Ainslie Paton is always slightly different to any other one I have read. Her plots are refreshing and fun.

This is the story of Caleb Sherwood and Finley Cartwright. Both out to help others but Caleb's family do it in a very interesting way, is it above board or n... ...more

I really enjoy MS Paton’s stories she has a fabulous writers voice one that brings out the best in her characters and has always kept me in the story and this one is no exception, a lot of ups and downs to get to a HEA in this one, but I really loved Cal a true Robin Hood and Fin what a heroine,... ...more

What an interesting premise and well done slowburn romance

I loved this present day Robin Hood kind of romance about a con artist and a failed actress trying to a run a charity coming together. There were lots of thoughts on redistribution of wealth, on lying and deceiving the others and ourselves... ...more

Review by Lisa
Late Night Reviewer for Up All Night w/ Books Blog


Ainslie Paton does it again with One Night Wife. What a ride you will be taken on in this story. I absolutely love the story line and the format. Finley, the woman who can't commit to anything and Cal the professional con ma... ...more

By JG May 27, 2018

This was a book that took me unawares on where the story was actually headed, like Ms. Paton’s previous books, it starts out almost fluffy with a great meet cute, an attractive hero and a not so perfect but delightful heroine. But then it veers off a little bit, to more multilayered and well defi... ...more

#280CharacterReview #AusRomToday
If there's something Ainslie Paton excels at it's smart, witty, sassy. Now apply all three of those things to the characters, plot, and writing and that's how best to describe One Night Wife. As expected from Paton the chemistry and romance sizzles while being an... ...more

CW: attempted assault

What a ride!

One Night Wife has a different vibe to it than Ainslie's Stubborn Hearts books, and I am here for this. I've always loved con stories (one of my favourite series is Ally Carter's Heist Society), so this one was pretty easy to get into.

I really liked Cal and the... ...more

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. That being said, I've been a huge fan of Paton's books for years. In some ways, this book was more light-hearted than her previous books, not as much of that lovely angst and tension that is present in most of her early works [and I love every a... ...more

One night at a bar, Finley stands on a bar trying to get patrons to donate to the charity she is trying to fund. Cal witnesses her fumbling attempt and while he's drawn to her, he is facing his own troubles so he lets it go. When she shows back up and kisses him, he decides to pursue something wi... ...more

By Lori June 04, 2018

This is such a different topic for a romance book. I don't think I have read a book about grifters or con men, but this one was fun and interesting. I loved the way they meet, the wicked banter they had between them, and the extreme sizzle that existed. Cal tried his best to stay out of Fin's bed... ...more

By Cheryl May 22, 2018

One Night Wife is another gem in a long list of literary treasures by Ainslie Paton. I loved this modern day Robin Hood romance and I was thoroughly enthralled by the unique storyline.
The highlight for me was, as always, is Paton’s clever, intelligent writing; her wonderful, witty dialogue, and... ...more

Who doesn't love Robin Hood? A man who steals.from the rich and gives to the poor sounds perfect. Such an idealist. And as someone who has spent time struggling to make ends meet while others live lavish lifestyles and live to excess I think we can all say the current world feels like it needs a... ...more

By Shea May 22, 2018

Well I didn't expect to learn all about the art of the con in a romance novel but I feel like I did. In fact I was pleasantly surprised to find myself pulling for a con artist like Cal. This is definitely a unique twist on the fake romance trope. It's witty and smart and I spent most of the book... ...more

One Night Wife by Ainslie Paton hit the spot!

I was given an advanced copy through Net gallery in exchange for an honest review.

This book is a stay-up-all-night-reading kind of story; I couldn’t put it down. The plot moves pretty well, it does get a little clunky at times, but overall is flow nicely. The character development is there but l... ...more

I really enjoyed this book. It started off a little slow for me, but I'm glad I stuck with it. I loved the somewhat forbidden attraction that Cal and Fin had for each other. I also loved their conversations. They felt real, mature and meaningful. They build up of sexual tension was perfect and le... ...more

By Phoebe May 21, 2018

I loved it, but I love pretty much all of Ainslie Paton's books because the heroines are smart, funny and usually pretty human. It's realistic even if the plot is unusual - which I like. Never a dull moment. There's lots of will they won't they get together, but there's a happy ending (no spoiler... ...more

About the author

Ainslie Paton

Ainslie Paton always wanted to write stories to make people smile, but the need to eat, accumulate books, and have bedclothes to read under was ever present. She sold out, and worked as a flack, a suit, and a creative, ghosting for business leaders, rabble-rousers and politicians, and making words happen for companies, governments, causes, conditions, high-profile CEOs, low-profile celebs, and the occasional misguided royal. She still does that. She also writes for love, and so she can buy shoes, and the good cat food. More here: www.ainsliepaton.com.au and on Twitter @AinsliePaton. She also writes under the name AA Paton.
