They connect but leave their night of passion in the hotel room. Until the day they discover they are next-door neighbors. Now they will find out if a one-night stand could lead to love and the happily ever after they were seeking.

    You have such a way with Romance. Reminds me of some of my favorite movies like "Somethings Got to Give" and "Book Club". Keep writing stories that show sexy ladies over 50 as "Still a Chick" in lit and then make MOVIES!!💋
