Turning down a billet at Mike’s Place in Dallas, Sergeant A.J. Turner left Iraq for Freewill, Wyoming with one goal in mind—to forget the last five years. Trading his MARPATS for jeans and his cover for a cowboy hat, he plans to work his ranch and pray the green grass, tall trees, and sweet mountains can wash away the taste of the desert.
The last thing he expected was a reminder of a promise made to his buddies: one night to help them all start again.
Sheri Vaughn quit her corporate job, sold her house and moved to Freewill on a whim. Six months after her divorce, she’s hardly ready to put her toe in the dating waters again. One bottle of wine later, however, she signs up for Madame Eve’s exclusive 1Night Stand service and lists a very particular set of qualities she wants in a man; he must be honorable, courageous, forthright, single, have served as Marine, but be a cowboy at heart. If she wants to dream, at least she can dream big.
But when local hero A.J. Turner arrives home, Madame Eve comes through, and Sheri has to find the courage to make her dream a reality…
Can one night, even a night arranged by Madame Eve, fulfill both a promise and a dream?

Madame Eve makes magic again in The Marine Cowboy part of the Always a Marine series of 1 Night stand books by Heather Long.
A.J. has finally returned home after being gone 7 years in the marines. He is enjoying the quite and the solitude being back in Freewill, WY. How could he have forgotten that he signed up for a 1 Night stand with the rest of his unit 18 months ago.
Sheri moved to Freewill from L.A. after her cheating dirtbag of and ex was finally an ex. When she signed up with Madame Eve she really never thought they would find someone to meet all of her very exacting list, that was until she caught sight of A.J. now she is hoping he is her 1 Night stand.
Ms. Long does a fantastic job not only giving us hot sexy cowboy/marines and spunky heroines but she makes them easy to relate to and a story that never feels rushed or hurried because it is a novella. Her Marine Cowboy gives us a hero we can admire as well as enough heat to melt the snow in Wyoming (I have been to Wyoming in the winter, that my friends is a hell of a lot of snow).
I have enjoyed this entire series however The Marine Cowboy holds a spot in my heart and my virtual book shelf because the heroine is a librarian, how perfect.
“What branch did he serve in again?” She glanced at the waitress curiously. Bea was born, married, gave birth to her children and buried her husband in Freewill. The town fixture wasn’t going anywhere. She also took Sheri under her wing from the day she arrived, treating her like an old friend—or a daughter.
“Marines, honey. That young man is definitely one of Freewill’s proudest.” She winked and went back to work.
A Marine. A tremor raced over her belly and her stomach seemed to bottom out.
The message waiting in her email this morning from Madame Eve made so much more sense. Biting her lip, she strained to look down the street. She wished she’d paid closer attention to him when he walked in, but she only got one good look at his face when he turned and caught her staring.
Her cheeks heated at the memory. The man was gorgeous and wore his masculinity like a second skin. He’d caught her attention the moment he entered the café. She hadn’t missed the corded muscle in his arms, tense and well defined even as he drank a cup of coffee.
But his smile.
Her heart squeezed. The polite smile creasing his rugged face turned him from a looker into a full-blown heartthrob. Her body hummed in reaction. To a smile.
Wow. He just got home. Dial down the hormones.
