Publisher's Summary

When Peggy McBride moves to Dare Valley, Colorado, the last thing she wants is to meet a man. If she's learned one thing from her divorce, it's that love is a messy business, and as a single mom and the new deputy sheriff, she has her hands full. But when hotel magnate and poker player Mac Maven moves to town, she becomes enthralled by the very last man she would ever consider dating...

Millionaire Mac Maven has come to Dare with ambitious plans for his new project, the restoration of The Grand Mountain Hotel as a boutique poker venue. Only one person offers him a less than warm welcome: Deputy Sheriff Peggy McBride, who is dead set against gambling. But although Peggy's a fierce opponent, Mac senses a tenderness and passion within her that he longs to free. Having helped his sister raise her teenage son, he understands Peggy, and can see past her tough-as-nails exterior.

When a threat to Mac's hotel surfaces, he and Peggy must join forces to find out who's responsible. Working together ignites the white-hot connection between them, and their cooperation takes a decidedly personal turn. But can Mac convince Peggy to set their differences aside and take a gamble on love?

Author's Note: All books can easily be heard as stand-alone stories.

    "Good story"

    Really good story had me laughing & crying. Predictable romance series you always know who is going to fall in love next but it keeps you hooked in because you want to know how it will happen.

    "wonderful series!"

    This is series you don't want to miss! If you like a story that sucks you in the first 5 minutes this it. I have listened to 4 of these and every character has a different personality with believable stories on how to mess things up and the pain to fix it back, laugh out loud, maybe shed a tear or two, go get a cup of coffee sit back and enjoy.

    "Good Read."
    If you could sum up The Grand Opening in three words, what would they be?

    Hard headed women !


    What other book might you compare The Grand Opening to and why?

    Hmmm... nothing comes to mind but it certainly got my dander up ! I wanted to strangle the female lead (Peggy) and Abby came in at a close second !


    Have you listened to any of Em Eldridge’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes and she's excellent !


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were times I was actually yelling out loud to the characters Peggy & Abby. Peggy was the worst ! Hard nosed obnoxious & bitchy. What did that gorgeous man see in her? I wanted him to dump her & walk away !
