When Sean Jones and Veronica Hardwicke come together lightening doesn’t strike, but there sure is a lot of Thunder. Sean Jones is her contractor, Veronica Hardwicke, aka “the princess” is his demanding client. Sean thought that remodeling her Sleepy Hollow mansion would be a feather in his company’s hat, but it’s turned into more of a pain in his a**! It doesn’t help matters that the crazy women keep him up at night, (in more ways than one)
Lonely young witch, Veronica Hardwicke, has struggled to get on with her life after the death of the elderly husband who’d left her a fortune and a sprawling estate in mystical Sleepy Hollow. When frightening things go bump in the night on a stormy Fourth of July, who better to call than the sexy developer and contractor, Sean Jones, who’s been renovating her mansion for months? Sean may grace the tabloid pages with a different supermodel on his arm every night, but it’s Veronica who drives him nuts. Ignoring his instinct to stay away, he answers her summons. Will the thundering passion of their 1Night Stand tear down the barriers between them?
Veronica is a witch. Not something she shares with everyone. What she hasn’t told Sean is that she keeps hearing noises in the house late at night. That’s why she keeps making him re-do rooms over and over. She’s trying to make a ghost happy. Plus, she really doesn’t want the job to end.
Thunder was different than most of the One Night Stand stories I’ve read, in that no date is prearranged. Veronica signed up, but Sean’s bother signed him up, without telling him. They both receive a text message stating their date has been arranged, when Sean is standing at Veronica’s door.
I liked Veronica a lot. But, frankly Sean was kind of a jerk in the beginning of Thunder. He does come around, but I didn’t like the way he talked about Veronica. I just found him difficult to like.
There were also some inconsistencies in Thunder that bothered me. One being that when Veronica calls Sean she is scared and casts a protection circle. Than she questions whether it will work or not, “because she’s not a very good witch”. Then later she produces a wand from thin air and transports both herself and Sean…umm not a very good witch?
