Book Description

Dec 26 2007

Anything can happen after dark . . .

Tired of being treated like a servant by her own family, Lady Jane Guthrie finally has a chance to escape . . . at least for one night. Attired in a daring gown, she arrives at a scandalous courtesans' masquerade ball looking forward to her few hours of freedom. But when she sees Seth Rutledge, her skin begins to tingle with anticipation. Many years ago, Seth broke her heart by falling for her beautiful, title-hungry sister. But now here he is, right in front of her, offering her his lips . . .

Embittered by war, Seth returns home to inherit the title that would have once won him the woman of his dreams. Though duty demands he wed, he's convinced passion no longer has a place in his life . . . until a masked siren sets his heart aflame. Desperate to find her again, he has no idea it's his childhood friend Jane—and that after one night together their lives will never be the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Night With You Jan. 3 2008
By MNix - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lady Jane Guthrie's ill treatment at the hands of her in laws makes her long for escape. When given the opportunity to sneak out and attend a masquerade ball, Jane cannot resist. Discovery would prove ruinous. At the ball, Jane encounters the one man she would know even behind his mask, Seth Rutledge. Although Seth doesn't recognize Jane in her domino, Jane has never forgotten her youthful love for Seth and gives in to his seduction.

One time isn't enough and Jane's desire for Seth drives her to seek him out again. Once again, Jane dons her domino so her identity isn't revealed. Seth cannot fight his desire for this mystery woman and that is proving to be a problem. Seth isn't free to follow his passions, because he must find a bride.

Sophie Jordan writes some seriously hot historical romance. Growl! One Night With You is sensationally spicy. Seth will leave you panting and desperate for your own scandalous seduction. A Cinderella story with sex so hot you'll need flame resistant underwear, One Night With You is yum yum yummy! I adored One Night With You.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was ok, not fantastic Jan. 2 2008
By missy24a - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The plot of the book was interesting. Although some of it seemed borrowed from other novels; a couple scenes were very reminiscent of "The Raven Prince" by Elizabeth Hoyt. I think the book started off well because it was exciting and fast-paced. Then there was the tension between the heroine and hero...and then there was MORE tension. That lasted about the second half of the book where Seth struggles with lust for Jane and his resentment toward her and love. Then in the very end of the last chapter, he finally realizes his love...but out of no where. I think something dramatic should have happened for him to realize his true feelings for her. The tension was built up really high and then it just...fizzled.

Also, Jane seemed kind of pathetic. She loved him all her life, even though he was infatuated with her sister, and then he treated her really badly when they first married. But she seemed to just give into him.

Overall, the climax of the story was too abrupt and didn't feel heart-felt. It just didn't live up to all the excitement and tension of the story. It could have been so much better had the author put a little more effort into the ending. I felt really disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Klovers - Courtesy of CK2S Kwips & Kritiques March 16 2008
By Jennifer Ray - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Widowed more than a year ago by a husband she never wanted, Lady Jane Guthrie now finds herself in the despicable position of having every facet of her life controlled by her lecherous brother-in-law and his wife. Using her as everything from errand-girl to governess for their children is bad enough, but the lewd looks her late husband's brother gives her makes it clear he wants even more.

Determined to assert her independence and enjoy herself on one rare occasion, Jane sneaks off one evening to attend a most decadent masked ball thrown by one of the town's most notorious Courtesans. She never expected to find her childhood best friend there, the man she never stopped loving - Seth Rutledge.

She is even less prepared for his surprisingly amorous reaction to her now. It must be the mask, of course. If he knew who she really was, he would never touch her, not in a million years. Would he?

As a fan of historical romance, I found Sophie Jordan's ONE NIGHT WITH YOU very enjoyable. This delightful romance was wonderfully three-dimensional, fraught with sexual heat, intrigue, and tortured lovers. Ms. Jordan weaves a story that the reader can picture almost as if they were standing on the sidelines watching it all in real time.

From the moment we meet the main characters, I felt as if I knew them. Indeed, I wanted to know them - an element most important for both the story's hero and heroine. While extremely likable, both bear pain from their past that causes each to doubt whether or not the other can truly love them, even as they crave that very emotion from each other. A shared history makes it even more difficult for this pair to come together without the benefit of anonymity they enjoy in the beginning of the story.

But when circumstances demand the mask come off and Jane finally reveal herself to the man she adores as the mysterious woman who has so enthralled him, the story really heats up! The fireworks really let loose as Seth and Jane are forced to deal with each other and face their feelings and their past.

What disappointed me about ONE NIGHT WITH YOU was that I felt there were still too many loose ends when the last page was turned. While we learn about the underhanded deeds perpetrated on Jane by the book's villains, they never really get their come-uppance, leaving the reader without some closure there. In addition, we are left wondering what will happen to Jane's stepson, who as a minor is still in the clutches of his evil uncle. Perhaps these are items intended for a future sequel, but there was no sense that there would be a sequel when the story finished.

Regardless of those disappointments, ONE NIGHT WITH YOU is still a marvelously entertaining read. I am very glad to have met both Seth and Jane and have the chance to enjoy their romance with them.

2.0 out of 5 stars not a keeper Dec 31 2007
By M. DETWILER - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I just finished Sophie Jordan's One Night With you and I have to say I am a little disappointed. I really enjoyed her first two books and was really anxious for this one, but after reading it, I have to say it didn't live up to the other two. I think the best way to describe it is to say it left me with a rather depressing feeling. I really didn't like the heroine Jane. I couldn't get a good handle on her. I don't know if it was her rather lackluster name or what, but she just seemed old to me. Her horrible first marriage was described over and over and after a while, it just was too much. She seemed like such a pathetic creature--her whole family was rotten and it just depressed me. Her life after she found Seth again wasn't a whole lot better. There were just so many unlikable characters in this book that there wasn't any relief from the bad feelings it evoked. I did like Julianne and Gregory's story, but it really didn't amount to a lot.
A lot of readers like books because of their feelings and the way the book makes them feel. A recent book I read that left me with such a happy feeling was Once a Rake by Rona Sharon. Even though that book dealt with unpleasant issues as well, it didn't depress me like this one. I finished that book with an uplifting feeling. Not so with One Night With You. I felt sad reading Jane's story and was sort of glad it was over when I finished it. I'm sad to say this book will not be joining Sophie Jordan's other two books on my keeper shelf. I wouldn't want to revisit this sad story again. 2 stars for Jordan's writing skills.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another Confused and Pathetic Heroine March 3 2008
By DreamyEyez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I would not say I am a feminist but I would prefer heroines to have some self-worth and some respect for themselves. Jane is a complete doormat who is uninteresting and sad. She tries to masquerade as "aurora" to have secret romps with Seth because her husband cheated on her. Honestly, she did not strike me as an interesting woman or vamp. She seems mousy and dull without a spine. I love sophie jordan's writing and her first two books were great, too wicked to tame was excellent. Anyway, I could not help myself as this book drove me nuts and so frustrated. Seth really had nothing to recommend him nor Jane either. I would not be interested in either of them from a romantic perspective. I won't give up on Sophie yet only because TWTT was so good but you can pass on this one unless you are desperate for some frustration. Julia Quinn has a good book about girlhood infatuation where the hero was very charming, its called the Secret Diaries of Ms. Miranda Cheever, similar story way better.
