Trish has big plans for New Year’s Eve: a giant bowl of popcorn, a nice warm blanket on the couch, and binge-watching TV all night long. With any luck, she’ll be fast asleep when the clock strikes twelve.

Not if her vivacious friend from the gym gets a say! Lori has salacious plans, and she’s persuaded Trish to join the party—even if it takes a touch of trickery to get Trish out of the house.

Trish isn’t exactly overjoyed when Lori drags her to the Cougar’s Eve New Year’s party at a swanky resort hotel. Trish is definitely NOT a cougar. In fact, she hasn’t been to bed with anyone since her husband split, and that was years ago.

When the hotel’s gorgeous young receptionist teaches Trish a few tricks, she can’t help wondering if Lori’s had the right idea all along. One night living the cougar life couldn’t ruin her forever… could it?

An erotic novella from award-winning author Giselle Renarde.


“It’s just one night,” Lori said. “What’s the worst that could happen?”

“You really want to drive all the way to the city for New Year’s Eve?” Trish asked. “Have you listened to the weather report?”

“Yeah, not a snowflake in sight. Perfect time to drive.”

Trish didn’t even want to think about it. She’d just microwaved a big bowl of popcorn and nestled in on the couch. Sure it was only two in the afternoon, but what better time for a snooze in front of the TV?

“It’s supposed to be cold.” Trish shivered just thinking about it, and the phone slid from her shoulder into the buttery bowl. Once she’d fished it out, she pressed the speaker button and set the greasy cordless beside her. “You really want to go out in that blustery wilds of winter?”

“Who cares what it’s like outside?” Lori said. “We’ll be indoors the whole time.”

“Indoors?” Trish had envisioned them bundled up in a crowd somewhere, ringing in the new year at a family-friendly event. What a stupid thought. Lori would never take them anywhere that didn’t provide unhealthy doses of alcohol. “Where exactly are you planning to go?”

“You’ll see when we get there.”
