It's party time in Las Vegas when four former college roommates and best friends converge on Sin City.  Add in a crazy drunken bet about finding "the one that got away" to see if there's a spark still burning after all these years—how bad could it be? 

Diana Sanford loves her friends and isn't above pulling a few strings to help them find their long lost loves.   She didn't have a past love from college, so her best friends agreed her bet should be modified—for her to win, she had to have a wild passionate one-night stand with a stranger. 

Kirk Jamison was fascinated with the curvy redhead who landed in his arms after nearly falling.  When she offered to spend the night with him, he couldn't refuse.  Things heated up, until he got called back on a case, and he's forced to leave before they make love, with a promise to keep in touch.  Little does he know, Diana had no intention of ever seeing him again.

Desire's flame burned hot between the two once.  Can the flames of desire be rekindled into a raging inferno or will misunderstandings tear them apart?  Only a return trip to Vegas holds the answer to their happily-ever-after.

Meet three sexy alpha heroes and the women they can't resist. Spend a little time soaking up the flavor of The Big Easy with all the romance, suspense, and colorful atmosphere the city provides.  This romantic suspense boxed set contains the first three books in the New Orleans Connection Series and includes Connor’s Gamble, Relentless Pursuit, and Ultimate Betrayal. And as we say in New Orleans, Laissez les bons temps rouler!

CONNOR’S GAMBLE

GAMBLING ON LOVE CAN BE DEADLY

Injured while helping capture a notorious serial killer, all New Orleans firefighter Connor Scott wants is to visit his grandmother in Florida for a few days of rest, relaxation and recovery. The last thing he expects is to be stuck on a bus loaded with senior citizens—and his ex-wife.

Alyssa Scott thought she'd left the baggage of her old life far behind when she moved to Florida. Instead she's chaperoning the senior group and dealing with the one person she never expected to see—her ex-husband. 

Sparks fly and passions reawaken. Neither Connor nor Alyssa can deny the feelings they still hold for each other. But a sinister threat from Connor's past thrusts them into a perilous game of cat-and-mouse to stop a ruthless killer before time runs out. Will Connor gamble everything to save the woman he loves? 

RELENTLESS PURSUIT

Jennifer "Jinx" Marucci witnesses her brother's shooting and the leader of New Orleans' Russian mob thinks her brother, Carlo, passed something valuable into her keeping—and demands its return. Every instinct tells her to trust no one, but what choice does she have except to turn to the police? 

Detective Remy Lamoreaux can't believe his luck when Jinx walks through the doors of the New Orleans Police Department. He's tried for years to bring down Vladimir Dubshenko. Fate has finally handed him the opportunity to go head-to-head with the vicious mobster and lock him up for good before Jinx becomes one more casualty in Dubshenko's lust for power. 

Intrigue, kidnapping and danger combine to keep Remy and Jinx constantly on the move. One thing is certain—if they stop running, they die.

ULTIMATE BETRAYAL

With his cover blown to hell after a media frenzy in New Orleans, all DEA agent Carlo Marucci wants is a week of rest and relaxation. Add in a Bed and Breakfast in Key West and a beautiful woman, and he thinks he's hit the perfect trifecta. 

Macie Branson has come to Key West to reconnect with her family after her sister's messy divorce. Cavorting with a tall, dark and sexy stranger isn't part of her plans. Until she meets Carlo. 

The chemistry burns fast and furious between them, but when Macie's nephews vanish, evidence connects the boys' disappearance back to New Orleans and the newest party drug flooding its streets. It's a race against the clock as Carlo and Macie search for the missing boys. Will they find her nephews before time runs out?

He groaned. This was torture. Being trapped in a room with a beautiful woman was just about every man’s fantasy, but he had to remember that this was just pretend.

Book 2
Q. What could be better than getting a billionaire for Christmas?

A. Getting THREE billionaires for Christmas!

Three Wise Men is a series of three books set in the sub-tropical Northland of New Zealand following the stories of three billionaire brothers and the single mums they fall in love with.

This year, Ophelia Clark isn’t looking forward to Christmas. Her ex-husband, Dillon, doesn’t want to be her ex anymore, and their daughter, Summer, wants him there on Christmas Day, so Ophelia’s finding it difficult to convince him their marriage is over. The last thing she needs is to start dating someone else and cloud the issue. And then the cute doctor she’s had her eye on finally asks her out.

Research scientist Charlie King has given up on relationships. Going without sex is a major drawback to that plan, but even though he has an IQ one point off Einstein’s, he considers himself hopeless with women. When he discovers the gorgeous Ophelia is now single, though, he decides to give himself one last chance to find love.

Logic tells Ophelia to wait until her divorce is through before getting involved with a new man, but her body hungers for the sexy scientist, and it doesn’t help that Charlie can’t keep his hands off her. Christmas looms full of the magic of their new love affair, and then Summer falls ill and ends up in hospital.

Ophelia’s torn between duty and desire. Should she follow her head and close this chapter of her life before she opens the next? Or should she follow her heart and give herself the ideal present—the prospect of forever with the man of her dreams?

In SWEPT INTO LOVE...It's been years since Sally Tuft's husband died and she was left to raise her teenage son alone. And almost as long since she told the only other man she'd ever wanted that they should be just friends. Now her son has left for college and Sally has no distractions to keep her from thinking about her best friend and coworker, Gage Ryder, and what could have been.

Gage always believed that one day Sally would move past the death of her husband and they would finally explore the passion that's simmered between them since the day they met. Tasked with opening a new youth center in Oak Falls, Virginia, Gage hopes the trip away is just what they need to finally come together.

Before Gage and Sally ever reach Oak Falls, one night at a conference changes everything, putting their friendship and their love on the line, and the two must decide if getting swept up in love is the beginning of forever, or the end of their friendship as they know it.

“Kathy Ivan’s books are addictive, you can’t read just one!”  Susan Stoker, NYT Bestselling Author

Welcome to Las Vegas, where fortunes can be won or lost at the whisper of a wager, and love can be as elusive as a dream.  Meet these strong, independent couples, willing to risk it all on finding their happily-ever-after with the one that got away.

IT HAPPENED IN VEGAS
One little wager.  What could go wrong?

That's what Charlie King thinks when her friends dare her to reach out to the one man she's never forgotten.  There's just one catch—he's the older brother of her former fiancée.

Rodeo star Jared Drake is in Vegas for the Grand National finals when he spots Charlie.  Their chemistry is instantly off the charts. There’s just one problem—his role in her broken engagement.

This time around, can they beat the odds to happily-ever-after or will secrets from the past keep them apart forever?

CRAZY VEGAS LOVE
It's party time in Las Vegas when four former college roommates and best friends converge on Sin City.  Add in a crazy drunken bet about finding "the one that got away" to see if there's a spark still burning after all these years—how bad could it be?  The next day, after coming to her senses, Gloria Valenzuela had no intention of going through with the bet.  Not until one of the other women played fairy godmother and arranged things so Gloria had no choice but to meet up with her ex.

A world famous country music star, Kyle Greenwood had everything he'd ever wanted except for the one thing he'd left behind—Gloria.   Then fate in the form of his matchmaking manager lends a hand and brings Gloria back into his life.

Before the night is over, a simple practical joke escalates into more than either anticipate.  Secrets from their past begin to unravel and threaten their last chance at happiness.  Can they overcome their obstacles and hold onto their happily ever after?

MARRIAGE, VEGAS STYLE
It's party time in Las Vegas when four former college roommates and best friends converge on Sin City.  Add in a crazy drunken bet about finding "the one that got away" to see if there's a spark still burning after all these years—how bad could it be?  When Cynthia "Cyn" Evans finds herself without access to cash and credit cards, she tempted to cave in to her mother's demands to return home and become engaged to someone who's earned the family approval.  That is, until she runs into Noah Cochran in the hotel lobby.  What are the odds the one man she decided not to look for is right here in Vegas?

Noah Cochran can't believe his luck.  The consortium deciding on the contract for the brand new casino complex has narrowed its choices down to five contenders, and his company is at the top of the list.  But he's the only unmarried businessman in the running, and if he wants to make a good impression, he needs a fiancée—fast.

A fake engagement seems the ideal solution, until things spiral out of control.  Will outside forces pull them apart when they've just found each other again, or can they hang on tight for their own happily-ever-after?
