Playing on Tilt

Playing on Tilt


, arc, second-chances

A broken queen.
A determined king.
One chance to go all-in.

ER nurse, Anna Leighton, gambled on a gambler and lost. Five years later, after picking up the pieces, her life is turned upside down once again. As the sole survivor of a madman’s rampage with a gun, she finds herself incessantly surrounded by memories and nightmares. She’s reached her breaking point and longs to disappear – the best place to do that is Sin City.

Hunter Leighton is as ruthless at the poker tables as he is in the board room. Failure is not in his vocabulary, and he’s never more focused than when he’s fixing something – whether it be accounts, companies, or his errant ex-wife. When he finds Anna drunk, alone, and unsuccessfully attempting to fend off unwanted advances in a Las Vegas casino, all bets are off.

While Anna fights fiercely against putting her life in the hands of the man who shattered her trust, she’s no match for his all-consuming drive to save her from herself and the world. The stakes are high as they decide whether or not to go all in on a second chance.

Playing on Tilt is the first story in the Love in Spades series. All are standalone books featuring alpha gamblers and the women who bring them to their knees. There will be playing cards, poker chips, dirty mouths, and a deplorable lack of clothes.

All stories carry a guaranteed HEA, and never cliffhangers or cheating.

    The heroine is nothing more than another "princess in need of rescuing." It's just another tired, sexist, story filled with antiquated beliefs that an abusive ex is better than nothing from yet anothe...
