He should have thrown her out. But when club owner Alexander Lavoie catches a mysterious blonde counting cards at his vingt-et-un table, he's more intrigued than angry. He has to see more of this beauty - in his club, in his office, in his bed. But first he'll have to devise a proposition she can't turn down.

Ash ford Mcnab is brilliant as always. Kelly Bowen’s heroines co to us to resonate with me. The a vulnerable but not puff balls. Maybe not a historically sound as some of this genre is but an enjoyable listen nonetheless.

Kate Reading is stellar as always
Story telling by SK is fabulous. You can visualize the very human characters and laugh and cry and cheer for them in the back of your mind as the story unfolds. Best book I have listened to in a while. Thank you to both the author and narrator.

Once Olympia Wingfield had been free to devote all her time to her true passion: the study of ancient legends and long-lost treasure. But now, with three hellion nephews to raise, the absentminded beauty has very little time for research. Which makes it seem all the more serendipitous when a handsome stranger strides into Olympia’s library unannounced and proceeds to set her world to rights.

I bought this book after having listened to another enjoyable series written by this author (Fortune was the main character in those). The author will have you laugh out loud But don’t buy this book if you’re into serious thrillers or mysteries. This is simply a fun fictional mystery with a romantic twist.
