For One Night by Penny Jordan is a 2016 Harlequin Presents publication. This book was originally published in 1988.After losing her best friend, Diana falls into the arms of a handsome stranger, but after their one night of passion, Diana discovers she is pregnant. Instead of being upset, she decides to start a new life for herself by relocating and claiming to be a widow so her child will not suffer the stigma associated with illegitimacy. But, she gets the shock of her life when she runs into [...]
Wow, here’s a first. I actually felt sorry for a Penny Jordan hero.At the beginning, the hero is thinking about sex, how long it’s been since he had sex, who he knows that he could have sex with, why isn’t anyone there so he can have sex, then thinks this charming statement that he knowingly would never go after the wives and girlfriends of his friends.High standards indeed. In the light of the heroine’s antics and his responses to her, I am going to go out on a limb and say he misspoke. [...]
RE For One Night or A Funny Thing Happened on the Way From the Funeral - PJ is back and this time with an entirely new and groundbreaking trope for HPlandia - The seekrit baby from the one night stand.In general one night stands are NOT encouraged at this point and time in HPlandia. Yes the real world is several decades ahead of HP values, but in HPlandia the lady who finds herself in an interesting condition after a night of anonymous lurve is not considered to be HP h material. There is someth [...]

I initially thought the one-night stand premise would be a little distasteful, but Penny Jordan made it work! Diana's and Marcus's separate motivations for sleeping with a stranger (each other) felt understandable considering their circumstances: her grief and his loneliness. It didn't hurt, too, that the attraction between them was nuclear and instant. So it's a testament to the author's skill that the romance, to me, felt believable and the initial encounter didn't come off as sordid. I'm keep [...]
This was quite a sweet story. Diana is reeling from the shock of losing her BFF, Leslie, who she nursed through her final illness with Leukemia. Unable to face the empty flat, she books into a posh hotel, takes a sedative and goes to sleep. She's woken by Marcus, a total stranger, who claims it's his room. A mistake at reception in a hotel full to overflowing. Both are tired and lonely and needing something and they have a one night stand and Marcus leaves, neither of them knowing the others nam [...]
BEAUTIFUL is the word for this book.Beautiful with its sensual plot,intruging hero and heroine and hot delicious romance.One night between the farm-owner Marcus Simmons (totally fell in love with this hero) and the grieving heroine Diana Johnson result in a secret-baby,and one growing love that will turn to everlasting lovePJ wrote with care in this one and the story held my attention throughout the book.The misunderstanding,the mild angsty and the bessotted love the hero and heroine felt toward [...]
This was just a so-so book for me. I read it some time ago and forgot to review. To sum it up, it dragged. The pacing was slow and that irritates me. The heroine was frustrating with all her deceit and I wasn't sure she deserved the hero whom I liked a lot. If she had been a bit more honest with him it wouldn't have been so bad. Every man, unless a criminal or abuser, deserves a chance to be a father to their child and when there is secret-keeping off and on throughout it turns me off the story. [...]
Super love storySuper love story. Sweet but hot. This is one of my new favorite authersI will try to read all her books
The story dragged a bit. I had no idea why the heroine continued with her lie for so much of the book.
Just another typical PJ book. Very predictable plot line. Good light read.
Hero was a gem. Heroine was a deceitful bitch. Her commitment phobia drove me crazy!
Not very good.
A short read of a couple who had one night stand she overcoming death of a friend and him needing companionship.
