Rion Ward fought hard to be free of the Irish mob life. Now, as the co-owner of Boston’s hottest aphrodisiac club, he’s traded crime for the ultimate sexual fantasy. But when the “good girl” from his past walks through Lick’s doors, he discovers that his unconsummated hunger for her never abated.

Widowed for two years from a man who felt that anything besides the missionary position was dirty, Harper Shaw is ready to move on. The first step to feeling alive again is sex. Hot, dirty, black-out-from-orgasm sex. And who better to provide it than the brooding, sexy, tatted bad boy-turned-man she’s known for years?

Rion, however, has one stipulation: He’ll be hers only for one night. One night to explore her every fantasy. One night to push her limits. One night to introduce her to a passion that makes both doubt if it will be enough…

Entangled Publishing has released a new imprint called Scorched. It promises to have all the heat level of their Brazen line, but with fewer boundaries (sexually speaking).

Only for a Night, one of the first books to be published by Entangled's Scorched imprint so delivered on everything I was promised. This book was all types of steamy and then some.

ARC Review: Only For A Night (Lick) by Naima Simone

The reviews talked about a big cliffhanger. I honestly thought it was a good end that kept you wanting more. I don't know if I would've qualified that as a blood-curdling cliffhanger.

Either way, it was short and sexy. Harper was a cool heroine. Rion was a good alpha. I enjoyed the sex scenes. Eve... ...more

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Naima Simone

USA Today bestselling author Naima Simone’s love of romance was first stirred by Johanna Lindsey and Linda Howard many years ago. Though her first attempt at writing a romance novel at age 11 never saw the light of day, her love of romance and writing has endured. Now, she spends her time creating stories of unique men and women who experience the dizzying heights of passion and the tender heat of love. She is wife to Superman—or his non-Kryptonian, less bullet proof equivalent—and mother to the most awesome kids ever. They all live in perfect, domestically-challenged bliss in the southern United States.
