Hot engine won't start

Hi,
I ran in a strange problem last WE on my Beneteau: The engine was running when I got the temperature alarm. I immediately shut off the engine, and let it cool.
I then checked the oil level which was low and added some.
I tried to restart the engine, but it wouldn't (still too hot?). I could hear a 'click' but no cranking.
Back at the mooring a few hours later, I gave it another try, and it did start right away... This got me very confused.
Any idea at what may be going on?
Thanks,
Thomas
