Gambling with Love definitely is one of this reviewer’s favorite of the month book. I loved that Lainie Conrad is a woman who is not dainty, fragile but brave, passionate and has a wild streak in her. Now Nick may be a lawman but he is one who goes by the book yet with Lainie he has doubts. These two were awesome and loved that the game was set from the beginning till the end. The sexual chemistry was hotter than ever and man talk about chasing the prey for these two was great at the chase wherever it led them. Great job and can’t wait for more from this talented author
