A novel by

 
 
-- A USA TODAY Bestseller --
Fiercely independent single mom Quinn Christiansen likes already being known in town for having a heart too hard for any man to break, courtesy of her deadbeat ex who left her with a mountain of his gambling debts to pay off, on top of the pediatric hospital bills her son had required from birth. So when she finally meets the lone man in Cactus Creek inexplicably undaunted by her ball-busting tendencies, Quinn has absolutely no idea what to do with him. Not only is he ridiculously handsome, and surprisingly sweet under his gruff and gritty exterior, he's also clearly determined to invade her life.

Rylan Grey isn't used to getting a woman so worked up. Well, not in a bad way, at least. And yet somehow, his mere existence seems to annoy the guarded and gorgeous Quinn to no end. Sure, he's made some gambles to get to where he's at, but they were all of the life variety, with risks as important as the rewards, fate betting as the house, and most importantly, not a single dollar in play. Though Rylan has never wagered anything he's not willing to lose--namely his heart--once he sees past Quinn's icy defenses, he's more than ready to ante up...for what's bound to be his riskiest gamble yet.

"Violet's writing simply jumps off the page and grabs you from the first sentence. If you love strong heroes, you'll love her books." -- New York Times Bestselling Author Bella Andre
