SHE KNOWS WHEN TO HOLD'EM.
As a newcomer to the great Lone State, Chloe thinks she's immune to the charms of cowboys--until Ryder King comes along. A gorgeous rodeo star with a gambling problem should spell trouble for Chloe, who's as quick-witted as she is stunning. But there's something gentle in Ryder's otherwise wild nature that gives her pause. And she can only fight her attraction for so long…
IS HE READY TO SHOW HIS HAND?
Texas born, bred, and proud, Ryder has always had a way with the ladies--though not so much with poker. He's just bet, and lost, a third of his family's ranch in a game. Can Chloe, the daughter of a card sharp who knows how to play to win, team up with Ryder in Vegas to help him win it back? The closer Ryder comes to getting back the ranch, the greater he risks losing his heart to Chloe. Is he ready to lay it all on the line for her? And can she trust that Ryder is for real--or is one of Texas's most notorious playboys too good to be true?
If you love cowboy romances and stories this is a great one for you. I thought the first of the three stories of the Texas cowboys was so fun, sweet and sexy that I can't wait to read the last two in this series. Ryder and Chloe are great family people who just want to make it on their own, even if it means mistakes along the way. Getting out of the mistakes make for lots of twists and turns. Can blackmail and friendship turn into something great? These gamblers will try their best to make a go of it.
I thought this story was compelling and lots of fun to read. It shows how people make some stupid mistakes because they think they can win. The mistakes have consequences that make this story great to read. I really liked how the secondary characters are well written up and make you want to keep reading each book to see how they will be involved. Texans and rodeos, family and troubles, sexy and fun, who could ask for more.
