Jordan Stryker’s multiple sclerosis diagnosis changed her life. She left the FBI and decided to try her hand at professional poker. She’s played poker for years, but no amount of practice could have prepared her for what she’d face in Las Vegas away from the tables.
Ashley Noble works security at a casino in Vegas. After a failed marriage and a disgraced exit from her position with the LAPD, she’s just grateful to have a job. When Stryker shows up in her casino, Ash is forced to face the woman she had an affair with fifteen years ago and thought she’d never see again.
The attraction between the two is undeniable, but Jordan keeps her distance because of her MS. When Ash decides she’s ready to up the ante, she knows getting Jordan to call the bet will be damn near impossible.


Finally a romance with some mettle to it: The main character suffers from MS and has to come to terms with it and love. Well done!

This was a toughie to rate. A perfect beach/vacation read. I loved the Las Vegas setting and a woman changing careers mid life due to a diagnosis of MS.

A solidly written novel that had me rooting for its two very sexy main characters, Ashley and Jordan. Well done, P. J. Trebelhorn.
