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?

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?
