Elena of House Lamorak has more than earned her reputation for not being a team player. Her devil-may-care attitude and reckless behavior has gotten her in—and out—of more trouble than she can count, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Playing by the rules is strictly reserved for the Blackjack table—until an impossible-to-resist warrior lures her into a dangerous game with a steep price. Her heart.

Haunted by his inability to protect his parents, Vaughn has spent centuries fighting in the shadows. Before his sister’s abduction, playing the odds was never a problem, but he’s not about to gamble with his sister’s life. He’ll do anything to get her back, even take on the fiery sorceress who tempts the wolf like nothing he’s ever known.

As their sizzling connection erupts into scorching need, the stakes have never been higher, forcing Vaughn to make the ultimate choice. Betray the only woman capable of soothing both man and beast, or risk losing his family forever.

I’m a romance author with a weakness for sexy alpha males and kickass heroines. When I’m not writing about characters falling in love, fighting for their lives or firing off witty one-liners, I’m either hanging around online, fast-talking my way into a gourmet meal that I’m always willing to set the table for, or hiding from my kids while I try to devour the last few pages of the book I’m reading.

I hope you’ll check out my bookshelf and read a few excerpts while you’re here. You can also subscribe to my Newsletter (see sidebar) for updates, contests and bonus content delivered right to your inbox.

If you have any questions about my books or just want to say hi, please drop me an email via my Contact page. I love hearing from my readers! And if you’ve read a great book lately, be sure to let me know. I’m always looking for book recs. Thanks for stopping by!
