All Night Long by Anne Mather: Her first vacation in years and a new beginning after her divorce, Ally spends her first night in the arms of a sexy stranger. For the first time in many years ally actually feels like an attractive woman, making this night just the thing she needs.
But when Raul appears again on her vacation, close to the friend she’s visiting, Ally doesn’t know what to do. She can’t be with him, but Raul refuses to let her go. Although older than him by nearly a decade, Raul refuses to let age, or any other obstacle, get in between them. If only Ally can listen to her heart and not her head telling her she isn’t enough for sexy, young Raul.
Then he gave her a tormented look. ‘Let me go, Ally Sloan, or I may do something we’ll both regret.’ His hand came out almost of its own volition and shaped her cheek. ‘You’re very sweet, do you know that? And I’m old enough to know better.’

I didn’t expect it, but I guess because it was so short, I enjoyed that the All Night Long was his chase of her. I waited a long time for this happily ever after, but it felt worth it.
I don’t read many of these Harlequins, but I overall I enjoyed All Night Long. Definitely recommend it if you want that Caribbean vacation feel!
