Jude Carson has an impossible task in front of him. He has to convince the man that he hasn't seen in fifteen years that he still loves him with all of his heart and wants him back. A task made even more diffuclt by the horrible circumstances that lead to their parting and tore their former pride apart.

My Review:

A seriously sexy read that left me breathing hard. This is the second in Mayburn's new Prides of the Moon series which is part of Decadent Publishing's 1 Night Stand series. I love the cover! Is there anything sexier than a wet man?

Madame Eve of the 1 Night Stand dating service can put another notch in her belt for bringing two people together in another perfect match in this twenty-eight page short.

Ben Hanson, bisexual werepuma beta and enforcer, is hurting. He misses his former lover but when forced to kill his brother fifteen years ago, their romance was torn apart. He is set up for a blind one night stand as a birthday gift from his alphas. When the door to the bar where he is waiting is held open for a little while, Ben recognizes the scent of the werepuna who must be his date.

Jude, bisexual werepuma and Ben's former younger lover, is all grown up and is now an alpha looking to start his own pride. When he learned from a friend of the alphas' gift to Ben, he immediately began an email campaign with Madame Eve trying to talk her into letting him be Ben's date.

Many might criticize the story for having the two get back together so easily but I say bah! With the mating bond, they can feel each other thoughts and emotions and therefore know the other is sincere.

There is mention of characters from the first story in the series but this is a stand alone story.

Hot M/M love and I rate it a Four Alarm Fire #@!%$ (4/4) on the heat scale.

I read this, along with Mayburn's other two in this series in one sitting.



  1. Thanks for sharing the great review!!! Gonna check it out on my Nook!!! :-)

  2. Thank you for the fantastic as always review, Bones. :) I have a soft spot in my heart for Ben and Jude, they really have a great story together and were a ton of fun to write...though Jude was a bit bossy...typical Alpha. ;)

  3. @jfort357 - I don't think you'll be disappointed. These guys are very sexy.

    @Ann Mayburn - The credit goes to you and your wonderful characters. These are, I think, two of my most favorite of all your characters.

  4. Decandent is getting verra, verra good at corralling the authors into writing hot 1NS stories. Sounds right up my alley!
