One Night Stands? Not All Bad.

February 1st will mark my first eXtasy Books release: a Fantasy Garden short story about a one night stand that has a satisfying outcome! As the teaser says, “Heat of Winter” is what occurs when a beautiful but lonely waitress shares a fast attraction with a sexy and equally single new customer at freewheeling Greenwich Village restaurant on a snowy February night. The pair keep each other cozy, carefree and coming in what promises to be more than just a one night stand in a snowstorm.

One night stands are always a gamble, and most turn out to be the last time you see the person. Hence, the name. But not all have to be unsuccessful or just another bad memory. Consider these tips if you find yourself in the situation:

Lay off your coworkers. I mean, the last thing you need is to sleep with a co-worker, hate it, and have to work with them the next day. This goes for anyone you’re likely to run into on a regular basis.

Make sure you both know why you’re there. It’s an immediate attraction sexual encounter and not a relationship. If you wake up tomorrow and still want to see each other, then roll with it. But don’t get your hopes up if you both aren't on the same page.

Be experimental if you want. This person doesn’t know you, so you can be a little less inhibited.

Use protection! And discuss your sexual history before the clothes coming flying off. Just because you’re strangers doesn’t mean you can’t be concerned for each other’s – and your own – safety.

Like the characters in my Fantasy Garden story, have you ever turned a snowstorm tryst into a flaming meltdown? Had any one-night stands in odd places? I invite you to share your one night stand adventures with us. It may give us something to write about!


  1. Great advice! Loved what you had to say about coworkers and I couldn't agree more!

  2. One night stands make great memories. Just choose wisely so you don't end up with a vampire stalking you afterward, such a pain to get rid of sometimes.
