New York – Present Day

Formula One racing driver Inigo Velasquez attends a weekend party and meets socialite Marielle Bisset. The two hit it off so well that they end up spending the night together. The next morning, he invites her to have breakfast with his family, but the moment they walk in together, its clear things aren't going to go well. Turns out that Marielle was his late brother-in-law's mistress and his sister, Bianca, who is present, orders her to leave. Inigo didn't know the name of the woman who was responsible for breaking up his sister's marriage to Jose, but now he does…and he starts to form a plan of revenge against Marielle for what she did to Bianca. Or, could it be because he wants to see Marielle again?

Marielle never had a chance to explain what happened between herself and Jose, and when Inigo contacts her for a dinner date, she sees it as an opportunity to mend fences. But she is barely given a chance to tell her side of the affair. Of course, it could also be due to the fact that the paparazzi caught wind of a new romance between racing's bad boy and the scandalous socialite. Marielle and Inigo should stay away from each other, but they can't ignore the attraction that has built between them. Is there any chance they can find happiness together?

Will an instant attraction help a couple overcome the fact that she is the “other woman” in the destruction of a marriage? For Marielle, getting involved with Jose wasn't in her plans. When Bianca found out, things exploded and Marielle broke things off. But Jose is now gone and it's time for Marielle to resume her life after spending time laying low. She is looking to get into the internet influencer business and doesn't need another scandal—or the old one—to resurface and provide bad publicity. However, the press is soon sniffing around Marielle and Inigo after they are spotted together. They clearly care for one another, though neither knows where it might lead. Should they just walk away from each other?

Marielle may not seem as though she should be a likable character, but there are explanations as to how she got involved with a married man, which I won't go into so as to not spoil ONE NIGHT TO RISK IT ALL. This tale is part of a series and can likely be read as a standalone with ease, though it might be better to have read the first two in the series since prior characters do appear in some scenes. The first two books are ONE NIGHT WITH HIS EX and ONE NIGHT, TWO SECRETS, both out now. Marielle and Inigo are going to have to overcome a lot before they can find happiness together.

They became attracted to each other before they realized how they were intricately connected, but it didn't stop them from falling in love. Don't miss Marielle and Inigo's tale in ONE NIGHT TO RISK IT ALL.
