Despite Damon Bradley's charm and good looks, advertising assistant Nia Taylor is not about to get sucked into his playboy lifestyle. When they meet at a party, Nia goes out of her way to avoid him. Their paths cross again when she is forced to work on a campaign for his family's bank, and it becomes progressively more difficult to resist his charms.

Finally agreeing to go on a date with Damon, Nia is surprised by just how genuine a guy he really is and realizes that the payoff to this relationship might be worth the risk.

One of the most magical moments in the aptly titled One Magic Moment is watching Nia and Damon wrestle with their personal demons. Their turbulent start sets the course for this novel and makes for interesting reading.

Realistic concerns, such as Nia's doubt about her beauty and her nervousness around Damon's wealthy social circle, add charm and make Nia and Damon pleasant characters to get acquainted with. St. John has done a fantastic job with her debut release. (Dec., 301 pp., $5.99)
