I’m so excited to be starting 2019 with the first book in my
new series Jokers Wild. ONE NIGHT
GAMBLE is a sexy, emotional story that proves that we make our own luck. I love setting
books in Las Vegas because I like playing around the idea of illusion that what you see isn’t
what’s really on the inside. And no city typifies that for me more than Sin City! My hero and
heroine both grew up in Las Vegas and have seen the seamier side of the city. Their
childhoods were very different and yet they both were shaped by them into the person we see
Casey took a gamble on himself when he left the group
home he was living in and struck out on his own. He was determined that with his belief in
himself and the luck he made he could make a fortune using only his skills with cards and his
ability to read people. He’s done it. He’s made more money than anyone ever expected him to
and he’s one of the top poker players in the world.
When he meets Talia he takes another risk. She’s different,
she works for him, but he wants her. And he likes her. She could be someone for him to lavish
all of his earnings on, except…she hates gamblers.
Casey has never just stopped bluffing and let himself be and
he knows in order to win Talia over he’s going to have to, but the only version of himself he
likes is the world famous poker player. And that’s not enough for her.
This book was so much fun to write. I really enjoyed using
gambling and luck and fate as elements in the story.
In my personal life, I love playing poker around the kitchen
table with my family but I don’t like playing in casinos. They just aren’t for me. What about
I’m giving away an e-book copy of ONE NIGHT GAMBLE and a deck of
ONE NIGHT GAMBLE playing cards!
Joker's Wild #1
Talia Spencer’s life is the epitome of boring and predictable. But then
she meets him…
The first time she meets Casey Waltham, she’s buying condoms…for
her grandmother. And of course drops them accidentally at his feet.
The second time she sees him, she’s this close to landing her dream
job and is celebrating at a club. Two chance encounters in the same
day--that’s got to be a sign, right?
He’s charming and flirty and just what Talia needs for the night.
But it was just supposed to be a hook-up. At least, that’s what she
thought...until he turns out to be her new boss...

I don't gamble, but I do enjoy watching others while they are trying to beat the odds.
