Christmas Eve is finally here and Nicholas Castillo’s staff has trimmed the trees and decked the halls for the Gala. All is in readiness and even Kathryn, the pilot who is responsible for ferrying in Madame’s Eve’s 1Night Stand guests to the remote hotel in Castle Alaska has hung up her wings for the holiday. Even better, she’s Nicholas’s date for the evening.
Because she lost a bet. But he’ll take a date with her any way he can get it because Nick has hopes that the Christmas spirit will help him to win over the woman he’s longed and lusted for since the first time her plane touched down outside his hotel. If only she didn’t think of him as a friend.
Kathryn wonders when Nick will take a hint. She’s even willing to put aside her comfy flying duds to don an elegant dress and stilettos for one night if it will make him notice that she’s a woman and hopefully attractive. But in the years they’ve known one another, she’s never had the nerve to tell him she’s interested, and why would a rich, handsome hotelier, a member of the Castillo family, be interested in a woman who rarely hangs around for more than a day or two before flying off to the wilds of Alaska’s interior. It will take a heaping dose of Christmas magic—or maybe Madame Eve’s own brand—to make this one work out!
Nick and Kathryn have been friends for a few years, ever since she started flying people up to Nick’s resort in Alaska. She never thought that she could have a chance with someone as debonair as Nick, but she can dream.
Kathryn is a wonderful friend, but truth be tolded, he fell in love with her the first time he met her. She is fiery and sweet, independent and sexy as sin. He wants her, and not for just one night.
Madame Eve’s Gift is a sweetly erotic short story with a very talented matchmaker and two very willing participants. There wasn’t really any conflict in the story, but I suppose for such a short read, there didn’t need to be. Of course there’s a happy ending, and overall the story is well written and entertaining.
