One Night to Be Sinful is a story of independence and love. Abigail, having been injured in an accident several years before, has never considered herself an invalid. She refuses to let her injury hinder her life and doesn't waste her time with people who look down on her. She is too busy living her life. To heck with them!
When Abigail meets Calvin, she thinks of him only as her butler, but later as someone so much more. He isn't like the other men. He looks at her with passionate eyes and a hungry heart, not as a woman with an injury. Calvin hasn't always been wealthy. He has lived a rather difficult life when a mere twist of fate gave him the chance to live as one of the rich and famous. Maybe that's why he isn't afraid of work. He is more familiar with the working class than the upper crust.
Calvin feels a connection with Abigail because she isn't attracted to him for his wealth or position. She likes him for his heart, kindness, and character. He's never had that before, especially from his own family. One Night to Be Sinful proves beauty lasts only for a short time but character, passion and love lasts for a lifetime.
In Samantha Garvers enticing debut, all it takes to open the door to deliciously wicked desires is a single night. But why stop at only one?
A fine and true friend, Calvin Garrett never anticipated what he would undertake in the name of loyalty to Lord Wolcott. Posing as a butler, he appears at the door of Wolcotts fiercely independent sister, Abigail, charged with uncovering the strange and sinister happenings at her country home. Certainly, he hoped playing servant to an unconventional woman would be a short-lived task. But when he meets his stunning new mistress, the scheme he had in mind takes a turn for the tempting...
Abigail has never encountered a butler so...magnetic. However, he comes highly recommended and she is desperate for help. The troubles and danger plaguing her estate are enough to make a sane woman cling to strong shoulders, but her awareness of her new employee has much more to do with a longing from deep within her heart. Clearly, she has bigger problems than a dizzying attraction to a male. Soon, though, sleepless nights filled with danger and desire form a volatile mix that promises to turn Abigail from a confirmed spinster into a woman ready for love
First of two Garver books. Very romantic.
Thought it was a very good 1st book. I will definitely look for more by this author.
Good characters & storyline. I especially liked Abigail who is considered a "spinster" (I hate that word) in the most unlikely of places.
historical Romance. Strong mind lady out on her thinks she can handle anything. Her brother sends a friend (whom she does not know to look after her) under the cover of a butler. She Likes him enough to want to have an affair but not to have him take care of her. great book I read it in one Day at Work on breaks and lunch
A very fun book with solid characterization, deft storytelling, and great plot pacing. I'm definitely keeping an eye out for more of Garver's books.
