Love, Diamonds, and Spades

Book 2, Cactus Creek - Cactus Creek

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


-- 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 all 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.

You've done it again!!! You never disappoint!!! Such a great read and love story!!! Thanks!!! I can't wait for the rest of the series!!! All of them!

Love, Diamonds and Spades

This was a great book just like the others in this series! We met Quinn, Rylan and Cooper in previous books and am so happy to read about their story! Quinn is a very strong woman, she thought. Tragedy strikes and she realizes just how weak she truly was. Enter Rylan and the mixture of love and stubbornness is there! It's a great book on the way to Violet's next story! Don't miss out!!

Violet Duke is still my favorite author.

I always love Violet's books and this one is no different. It lacked a little plot development in comparison to her other books and I had trouble remember the characters since the second was released so much later than the first, but it was still great. Buy this book, you'll enjoy it. *I was given an advance copy for an honest review.
