About Spend the Night
Spend the Night – Episode 1
Welcome to The Wellesley-Crawford…
Hannah Wellesley has spent her entire life running the halls of her family-owned hotel, the infamous and opulent Wellesley-Crawford. Noted as one of the city’s richest, most luxurious hotels in Chicago, the WC is what Hannah has devoted her life and career to.
The hotel’s Annual Masquerade Gala is the event of the year, but this year Hannah’s evening involves more than just handing out masks. After a mysterious rendezvous in a secluded stairwell with an irresistible and unidentifiable man, Hannah becomes consumed with discovering the identity of her masked lover. Just as she’s about to give up the search, two men blow back into her life with drastically different intentions. They both have secrets and uncovering them will lead Hannah down a darkly dangerous path.
Drawn to both of the intriguing bachelors, she’ll have to determine which one is after her heart and which one plans to do her deadly harm before it’s too late.
Out of the corner of my eye I saw Carter walk in and look around the bar. “Trent,” I forced myself to lean back, “my date is here.” I stood up, drink in hand, and pushed my rear against the barstool, to allow my exit. “Thanks for the drink.”
“That guy?” Trent asked with a furrowed brow as he watched Carter walk through the crowd. “Not really your type, Hannah.”
In a matter of five words, Trent Crawford had reminded me exactly why I was pissed at him. The Trent that I knew ten years ago had been replaced with a new version. A new version that acted like a jackass at board meetings and made asinine remarks about my choice in dates.
“It’s cute that you think you know what my type is, Trent,” I said, forcing a smile.
“Oh, I think I know better than you do.”
