One Night Is Never Enough
Back cover blurb
From the first glimpse he knew he must have her-even if only for a single night…
Powerful, ruthless, seductive-the lord of London’s underworld-Roman Merrick gets anything he wants…and he burns for Charlotte Chatsworth, a polished jewel in the glittering ton. So he engages her debt-ridden gambler father in a game of chance, wagering ten thousand pounds against one night with the man’s exquisite daughter. And Roman Merrick never loses.
But one night is never enough…
Charlotte is devastated to learn that her reprobate father has lost her in a card game to the most dangerous man she’s ever met. With the threat of ruin behind every corner, Charlotte embarks upon a perilous path with the man she can not forget. But in truth, it’s Roman who has everything to lose-for a game undertaken for pleasure alone soon has him gambling his heart. And love and passion unleashed could bring his great, dark empire tumbling down…
“What exactly is your business, Roman?”
“My business is complicated and boring.” He tilted his head, a smile curling. “No, I withdraw that. My business is complicated and far too exciting for a delicate lady’s ears. You will likely faint before I utter the first words of an explanation.”
“It is a good thing that my ears are sturdy then, and that I’ve never fainted before,” said Charlotte.
“There is always a first. At least you are on the bed. You would fall so prettily upon your back. Lips parted, in complete surrender.”
The reminder of their position was unnecessary, but still brought color to her cheeks.
“See. There. I detect the beginnings of a faint already.”
“More likely you detect the stirrings of my temper.”
“Really? I bet you look quite lovely in a fit. Cheeks all ablaze in passion.”
“I thought you were uninterested in beauty.”
He smiled slowly. “What I’m interested in is you.” He leaned forward and one finger touched her chin. “I’m going to possess you, Charlotte.”
The next book in the series, In Total Surrender, will be released in Septermber 27th, 2011.
“Anne Mallory’s One Night is Never Enough is as close to perfect as any love story I’ve read in recent memory. I bet it’s the best historical romance I’ll read this year and, yes, I know it’s only March.”

What I chiefly like best about this book, and Mallory’s writing in general, is the longing she evokes…an intense read with interesting and distinctive characters and writing style. One that I will read again.

4 1/2 Stars TOP PICK – Mallory showcases her talent for creating powerful stories made stronger by intense emotions. With her well-drawn characters, their rapier dialogue and an irresistible bad-boy hero, she captivates readers’ attention. Even a plot as old as the genre becomes fabulously new in her hands.
