A delightful new contemporary romance novella from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julia London.
One winter’s night a blizzard sweeps across the country, demonstrating that fate can change the course of lives in an instant…and fate has got a sense of humor.
Chelsea Crawford and Ian Rafferty are high profile ad execs in cutthroat competition for a client. When a major winter storm puts New York City on lockdown, the two rivals have to make it through the night together-oh, the many ways in which opposites attract…
One Mad Night by Julia London is a fun, flirty and fast-paced novella. It is also a sizzling hot romance that has a surprising amount of depth and substance.
Business rivals in the same advertising firm, Chelsea Crawford and Ian Rafferty are locked in a fierce competition for the same account. Chelsea has worked her butt of the agency for six years while Ian is a relative newcomer to the company. When both of them are stranded in the office by a blizzard, Chelsea and Ian are surprised by how much they learn about one another and ultimately, themselves.
Chelsea is a little uptight and focused on her career, whereas Ian is more laidback and easygoing. Both are good at their jobs, but Chelsea lets her boss take advantage of her which leaves her at a distinct disadvantage in the aggressive advertising world. Ian has worked hard to get ahead and while he has earned his place in the company, he becomes disillusioned once he realizes he has been given an unfair advantage.
One Mad Night is an absolutely charming story that is impossible to put down. Ian and Chelsea are wonderfully developed protagonists, their attraction is scorching hot and their banter is delightfully witty. Despite its short length, Julia London delivers a believable love story that is heartfelt and engaging.
