One Summer Night was just the light read I was looking for. Told from dual points of view, Maggie and Owen’s story will grab you from the first page and will leave you begging for more.
From the moment we meet Maggie and Owen, the sparks between the two of them are instant. There is history there and a connection that is just begging to be explored. The only problem….their families can’t stand each other. Despite their family issues, Maggie and Owen begin to spend time with one another. It’s risky. It’s complicated. But, some of the best risks are worth taking. Will Maggie and Owen take a chance on each other or will their family rivalries throw everything away? There’s only one way to find out….
Overall, I really enjoyed One Summer Night. I thought the story-line was a lot of fun and was excited to see where Owen and Maggie’s story was going to go. I enjoyed the slow burn to Maggie and Owen’s relationship. The sparks were there, but I appreciated that these two didn’t immediately jump in. And to me that made the chemistry between the two of them burn hotter. You just knew they would be off the charts together, you just had to wait for them to give in and take the jump.
One Summer Night is well written and is the perfect light read. One Summer Night has just the right balance of family drama, a touch of angst and just the right amount of sexiness. I think this series is off to a promising start and I’m excited to see where it will go next.

ONE SUMMER NIGHT Excerpt
Copyright © 2017 Caridad Pineiro
With keen interest, Owen Pierce took note of the three women as they hurried away from the dais and into the Sinclair mansion.
“Put your eyes back in your head, Bro. She’s nothing but trouble,” Jon warned in low tones.
Owen bit back the retort that if anyone knew about trouble, it was his brother. Jonathan had always marched to a different drummer and had set out on his own as a teenager to explore what he wanted out of life. Now a successful entrepreneur, he had captured the media’s attention with his innovative designs and daring adventures. That left Owen to shoulder most of the burden of the family’s real estate business, as well as deal with his father’s anger over Jonathan’s latest newsworthy escapade.
He envied his brother’s carefree spirit and determination, especially as Maggie Sinclair marched back onto the patio with her friends, an angry bride, and an obviously inebriated groom. Both the bride and groom looked far from happy as they approached the elaborate multi-tiered wedding cake that had been wheeled out to the middle of the makeshift dance floor.
He worried the bride might plunge the long knife she held into her new husband, but luckily for the newlyweds, Maggie directed the blade toward the cake.
Jon playfully elbowed him. “Seriously, Owen. She’s not for you. Father declared the Sinclairs off-limits ages ago. He would have a stroke if he thought the two of you were involved.”
Involved with Maggie Sinclair, Owen thought and sighed with regret.
In a way, he’d been involved with her forever. He’d like to chalk it all up to a sloppy, hurried, and stolen kiss at eighteen and the allure of forbidden fruit. But since that kiss, he’d watched her mature into a smart, beautiful woman. One who was willing to work hard for the town and business she cared about as well as friends and family. With every encounter, he’d grown more intrigued with the person Maggie had become.
But his father had come down hard on them about mingling with the Sinclairs right after Maggie’s mother’s death. For years, they’d been
unable to come to their Sea Kiss home, and even when they’d returned, they’d done so without their father, who refused to be so close to the family he thought had wronged him.
Not that Owen expected that Jon would kowtow to such rules, since his brother was the kind of man who didn’t hesitate to take what he wanted.
He arched a brow and met his brother’s blue-eyed gaze, which glittered with a mix of undisguised challenge and amusement. “Do you think you’re the only one entitled to a little adventure in your life?” he said.
Jon chuckled. “My kind of adventure is way safer than what you may be considering.”
“Why’s that, Li’l Bro?” he asked, appreciating the sight of Maggie in a dusty-rose gown that hugged dangerous curves. Her chestnut-brown hair fell to her shoulders in soft waves and framed ice-blue eyes and a sassy, sexy face that snared his attention every time he saw her.
Jonathan took a last sip of his champagne and barely stifled another laugh. With a shake of his head, he replied, “Because all I risk is an occasional broken bone, but that…” He jerked his head in Maggie’s direction as she stepped back beside Connie and Emma. “That will break your heart.”
