Synopsis:
Chloe Shade has travelled to Edinburgh to meet up with a potential client, and has just twenty-four hours to convince them to sign her contract. But when she meets the delicious Ethan, he proves to be so much more than an enticing distraction. It’s not long before Chloe has some life changing decisions to make, and less than a day to make them.
~My Thoughts~
Business-like Chloe is all set to do whatever it takes to get her possible client to sign with her. She just isn't prepared for how sexy this new client is or how enthralling their chemistry is. Ethan turns out to be a challenge that she's not alltogether sure she can handle, as hot as he is!

I actually really liked how short of a timespan  the book encompasses. It's exactly 24 hours of interactions, both hot and cold, and it's just enough for a short, erotic jaunt into the world of lust and love. 

There wasn't much time for character development, but the romantic action was just prime. It was a great, quick read and both Ethan and Chloe were pretty strong for only having such a short amount of screen time. One Night in Edinburgh is quick and straight to the point, giving the erotic thrills that this audience is looking for and then getting out right away leaving everyone satisfied! 
~Try an Excerpt!~
They wandered down The Royal Mile. Edinburgh Castle with all its magnificence
stood proudly on its rocky pedestal, looking down over the city. Cobbled roads
spilled down the hill, between rows of shops and museums, all proud of their Scottish
heritage. Colourful lights flickered against the ageing walls. Tourists and locals
blended together as they searched for food and fun.

The sun had not yet reached the horizon and shot the sky with bullets of red and
orange over a darkening background. A talented artist, the burning star had swiped
his brush over the blue canvas, leaving an array of varying shades of purple above
his head.

There were no clouds to hide the twinkling of Venus as she radiated her beauty
over the earth. One-by-one, each star peeked out from its daytime blanket and
smiled down on them. As a kid, he’d believed that each star was an angel, a loving
soul, who was watching them and keeping all the children safe. Sometimes he
wished that he still held that naivety.

He hadn’t meant to pull her closer to him, but the vivid memories of childhood
that punctured his brain forced his grip to tighten. She stopped mid-stride, and he
stopped too. They turned to face each other. He could almost taste the wine and
chocolate that danced on her breath.

A heavy ache weighed in his chest. In the morning she would be gone, and it
would be painful to say goodbye to her.
