Four sisters named after royalty, with dowries fit for a queen. Their Gypsy fortuneteller mother predicted each would marry a prince…of sorts.

~~

Kate Grant’s culinary feats are legend in Las Vegas, but her love life has been on the backburner for much too long.


Single mom and chef Katherine “Kate” Parlier-Grant values family above all else—even more than Romantique, her popular Vegas restaurant. Bankrupted and betrayed by her ex-husband, Kate avoids risk at all cost, until her fragile status quo is rocked to the foundation. Is putting her heart—and daughter Maya’s future—in the hands of a handsome hotshot lawyer another risky gamble…or her destiny?


Rob Brighten’s a legal whiz with one eye on the Exit sign back to the real world, until he runs into a beautiful roadblock named Kate.


Vegas equals purgatory in Rob Brighten’s book…until his mom’s new business partner asks for his help. Gorgeous, smart, and sexy Kate breaks all his dating rules: no ex-husbands, no kids, and no workaholics. So why can’t he get her out of his head? And, more importantly, how can he convince Maya he’s got the right stuff to be a “real” dad?

 Four sisters named after royalty, with dowries fit for a queen. Their Gypsy fortuneteller mother predicted each would marry a prince…of sorts.

 

Screw Prince Charming. She’s got a baby to save.

 

Liz Parlier returned from a humanitarian tour in Iraq a changed person. Her family can’t reach their “healer’s” heart because it stayed in India—where Liz went to recuperate and fell in love with an orphaned baby she’s determined to adopt. Her fragile house of cards doesn’t have room for a mysterious gardener with a questionable past, but something about David Baines tugs at her wounded soul.

 

He’s died before. He knows the drill.

 

David Baines is alone by choice—it’s easier to disappear. But he’s only human, and Liz pulls him to her like tumbleweed to a fence. Keeping her out of the line of fire when his past catches up with him proves impossible, so together they confront the “man of darkness” her Gypsy fortuneteller mother warned about. But will they be too late to save the “child of light”?

 Four sisters named after royalty, with dowries fit for a queen. Their Gypsy fortuneteller mother predicted each would marry a prince…of sorts.

 

Dear Santa: #1 wish? A child of my own. P.S.: Heartbreaker single dad from Christmas past need not apply—even if he does have an adorable son.

 

After then-cop Mark Gaylord--her less than honorable prince charming--left her at the altar, Alexandra—Alexa—Parlier poured her hopes, dreams, and trust fund into creating the Dancing Hippo Day Care. Now, Mark’s back. With his traumatized young son. Both need her help. How can she say no when it’s almost Christmas…and her heart hasn’t forgotten how much she loved him?

 

Dear Santa: #1 wish? See my son smile again. #2 wish? Find a way to redeem myself in the eyes of the woman I never stopped loving.

 

Mark isn’t expecting a miracle. He screwed up nearly everything good in his life when he broke Alexa’s heart, but none of that is Braden’s fault. The poor kid has been through hell, thanks to his late mother. Mark needs help and there’s no one he’d trust more with his son than the woman he should have married.

 Four sisters named after royalty, with dowries fit for a queen. Their Gypsy fortuneteller mother predicted each would marry a prince…of sorts.

She’s a princess with more to lose than her dowry.

Las Vegas restaurateur Grace Parlier doesn’t gamble, but she’s risking her dowry on a new business with her late father’s friend because casino owner Charles Harmon has what she wants: location, location, location. The money may have been earmarked for a wedding, but everyone knows Grace has terrible taste in men. Look at the way her heart races every time her family’s latest Romani rescue comes close. But how could an ex-con from Detroit possibly be the prince she was meant to marry?

 

He’s a Detroit cop with no skin in the game—or so he wants to believe.

Nick Lightner goes undercover in Vegas for one reason only: to take down scumbag Charles Harmon. Does he believe Lucky Chuck is a human serpent threatening his birth father’s family? Hell, no. Nick knows who he is and where his allegiance lies. Certainly not with a sexy “princess” who makes the few drops of Romani blood in his veins run hotter than a winning streak at the craps table. His heart maintains a safe distance…until the princess takes a bullet meant for him, then all bets are off.
