From the Author:
Nearly three years ago I took a trip to Las Vegas to do a writing weekend with friends. I had just finished one book and wanted to get started on a romantic suspense since I was in the mood to write a sexy, action-packed story.
Just one problem. I needed an idea for it!
The time with my friends was filled with both so much fun as we discussed on what we were working, did critiques, and brainstormed all kinds of plot issues. We also managed to squeeze in time to take in the sights of Las Vegas, have a nice dinner, see a show, and spend some relaxing time at a spa.
Did I mention we also took a pole dancing class? Believe me, it’s really hard and my legs were all bruised from hitting the pole! Here’s a picture of us at the class.
But as we went from place to place, ideas started taking hold in my brain. What would happen if my hero owned a casino? What kind of casino would it be? What would the suspense be about? How would the hero and heroine react to a very sexy massage at the spa? Or maybe even an enticing little lap dance while the heroine was undercover?
Little by little THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE came to life, but being a Jersey Girl, I decided to set the story in Atlantic City and create an over-the-top themed casino like those I had seen in Las Vegas.
I also wanted to add more glamour to the story, so I decided my hero was going to be royalty which would widen the gulf even more between Prince Alexander and my kick-ass FBI Agent heroine.
I loved throwing together two such opposite people and having the sparks fly as they battle their attraction while trying to solve a case that threatens not only the casino, but the lives of a number of women.
It was great to give Prince Alexander and Kathleen their happily-ever-after, but then Hurricane Sandy came along and everyone associated with the project knew the story wasn’t finished.
Since THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE was set in Atlantic City, I rewrote portions of the book to include the hurricane and not only provide a message of hope to the people of my home state, but also help out with the damage done by Hurricane Sandy.
For that reason, I’m going to be donating my share of the proceeds from sales of THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE from now until March 1, 2013 to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.

Prince Alexander Ivanov is scrambling to save his reputation and his livelihood. One of the Russian Nights Casino’s hostesses has disappeared, and his business is suddenly under investigation by the FBI for associations with the mob and money laundering.
Special Agent Kathleen Martinez has no patience with rich, entitled aristocrats, especially one like Alexander Ivanov whom she believes is involved in the vicious human trafficking ring which she’d tried—and failed—to shut down two years earlier. With a second chance to bring him to justice, she goes undercover in the casino, but instead of facing the villain she expected, she finds herself battling a sizzling attraction to the man.
Now, forced to work together to trace the source of the illegal activities, the danger—and the passion between them—grows out of control, and they slowly begin to realize the biggest danger isn’t to the casino, it’s to their lives…and to their hearts.
