A One-Night Stand Goes Out of Control in Mira Lyn Kelly’s "Never Stay Past Midnight"

by Mira Lyn Kelly, author of Never Stay Past Midnight (Harlequin Presents Extra, August 2012)

Oooh yay! Never Stay Past Midnight, my fourth Presents Extra, hits the shelves tomorrow—and this one’s my favorite by far!!

Here’s a little teaser to set the scene…

Thank you?

I’m sure I won’t see you around?

Talk about killing a moment. She was ruining everything.

Why couldn’t this guy have just fallen asleep and let her escape without a word? Without the rude reminder of her absolute inexperience in matters of casual sex? This wasn’t the memory she wanted to take with her. Heat burning her cheeks and that single gruff cough—of whatever awkward response it was—sounding behind her.

Okay, well, no more talk. Even if she’d been doing a passable job of it, a furtive glance at the clock confirmed there wasn’t time. She just needed to get her things and go. Quickly.

Halter. Jeans. Panties.

Check, check, check.

Wallet and keys. By the door…where she’d dropped them when they got inside.

For shame, bad girl, she thought with a curling little smile she didn’t have the time to indulge in.

You guessed it, Never Stay Past Midnight is the tale of a one-night stand gone completely out of control. The slippery slope of exceptions made to rules that were put into place for a reason.

Neither night club owner Levi nor small business hopeful Elise have room in their lives for a relationship. They both know better than to give in to the sizzling current running between them—knew better from the first instant they bumped into each other in the dead last place either expected a pick-up to occur—the business aisle of a late night book store. But like everything else that happens between these two, just because they know what the right thing to do is…doesn’t mean they’re going to do it.

And now that they’ve had a taste of something so wrong, feeling so right… the only thing harder than giving it up, is finding a way to make it work!
