Emma, a very conscientious responsible PA, finds that her boss just left an important file on her his desk, one that he will need the following day despite the snow storm brewing over the city. So, being Emma, she sets out to deliver the file to Lucas only to find that she has encountered a very beastly man who is noticeably in pain. Emma can’t just walk away from the hurt and pain emanating from her boss, Lucas Jackson. Soon Emma realizes she may have bitten off more than she can chew. Closed off, Lucas Jackson is a workaholic who seeks complete oblivion one night of the year, and he expects people to respond when he unleashes his inner beast. He warned Emma that she shouldn’t stay and to get out, but she didn’t heed his warning. Soon, he is seeking oblivion from his inner demon in the next available way.
A Night of No Return is sizzling with chemistry and love between Emma and Lucas…even though they don’t fully comprehend what is brewing between them until later. I had to admire Emma when she sought to put that night behind them in A Night of No Return, but as the title states…..Lucas’ pain was a turn around for a hero and yet, no less important in A Night of No Return.
A Night of No Return had Emma and Lucas looking beyond the surface presented to the world, fighting the obstacles, and to get to the heart of the matter and each other. Emma showed that she had more strength than one would have thought and that she was willing to step up to the plate when needed, but it was never as a matter of duty. Lucas needed someone that would balance him out, and Emma showed that she was that person in A Night of No Return. He seemed to be encased in a deep freeze and he needed someone to thaw him out, and show him that he doesn’t need to be locked away. I liked that Emma teased him a bit the morning after in A Night of No Return, and maybe in the end this was a good thing because it could have softened him up a little or is my fairy tale girl rearing her head again? I got Lucas and Emma. Their feelings and experiences were applicable to today. They seemed to resonate with me because they knew no socio-economic boundary; it was something that can be felt at all levels of society.
I’m beginning to wonder if Sarah Morgan has some sort of device that is tapping into my emotions this year. So far, I have thoroughly enjoyed several of her offerings, and A Night of No Return is no exception. I therefore, must Joyfully Recommend A Night of No Return.
