Marine Paul Torres is used to women who enjoy the pleasure of the moment and whom he can bed with a wink and a smile. But with so many of his friends settling down, he's turned on by the allure of finding the right partner as well. Even more so when he meets Lillianna Hansen while attending a wedding.
After a passionate night, Paul wakes to find her gone and though he wants more than a one-night stand with the alluring Lily, his limited leave is up and he's forced to return to active duty.
All Lillianna thought she wanted was a good time. But Paul's attention - even from thousands of miles away - is hard to resist, and while she tells herself repeatedly she doesn't want a relationship with a Marine, she can't deny the consequences of their passionate night.
When she finds out she's pregnant, she's forced to reach out to Paul. But is she ready to let the father of her child be her Marine Ever After...

The author always does a fine job defining her characters, and this is actually one of her longer short stories. It could easily have been even longer.
If you want a story with a lot of hot sex, this is not for you though - there were only 2 hot and heavy scenes, at the beginning and towards the end. The story focuses more on the couple dealing with an unexpected pregnancy and bringing them closer together while being miles apart.
A sweet story about growing in love instead of falling in love :-)
Only one thing, the narration/narrator. I have listen to a lot of Heather long's book and almost didn't buy this one only because of the narrator.
It is truly a beautiful story. 1) Marines in service to our country, who could knock that.2)The only one who didn't know it was love at first site was Lillianna. This one night stand story is another really, really good read.

Heather Long, you are an excellent writer. The story lines, the detail (of military life etc) are well worth purchase price of your books. I wish I could get across the importants, to the narrators, that their reading is not just reading. They are telling the story and making the listener see every detail, every nuance to the point of feeling the story an characters.
A different narrator.
Absolutely not. The way she holds out the end of each phrase was so hard to listen to I couldn't get past the first five minutes. It's one of those times I wish I had listened to the sample first.
