From New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones comes a brand new gripping and provocative novel that ties into her bestselling Careless Whispers and Inside Out series. You can enjoy this as a standalone, but fans of Careless Whispers and Inside Out will get an exciting glimpse of who Ella really is and some of the secrets she's been hiding from everyone she knows.

Desperate to pay for law school, Skye tries her hand at auction hunting with her friend Ella, only to find a poker chip and a note leading to an offsite locker. The next thing she knows, Jason “Red Bull” Wise—a famous, millionaire poker player—is at her door, accusing her of blackmail. Innocent, she swears he’s wrong. He rolls the dice and believes her, impulsively inviting her along to Las Vegas. And remarkably, cautious Skye takes a risk, finding herself seduced by this dangerously alluring man, on his private jet, and finally living life to the fullest. But there is more than passion waiting for Skye and Jason in Vegas when blackmail takes a deadly turn.

A fast-paced, romantic suspense novel that will hold over fans of Lisa Renee Jones’s Careless Whispers series. This is a brand new, full-length standalone that coincides with Jones’s Inside Out Series, and is also a spin off of her Careless Whispers. For my fellow readers who are patiently awaiting the third and final book, Surrender, you’ll be happy to know we learn some info about the mysterious Ella in this book.

After impulsively bidding and winning a storage unit at an auction, Skye Montgomery finds something within that catapults her into a blackmail scheme which targets none other than pro poker player, Jason Wise. As the two make their way to Las Vegas for the poker championship tournament, the person blackmailing Jason is on their tail. Suddenly, the woman Jason originally thought was after him, turns into the woman he so fiercely feels the need to protect.

Both characters are well-defined and vibrant as their passionate romance and high-risk journey ensues. Their seductive instant attraction and adventure filled with intrigue and betrayal, this makes for a thrilling and entertaining read.

Suzanne Todd on the INSIDE OUT series: Lisa has created a beautiful, complicated, and sensual world that is filled with intrigue and suspense. Sara’s character is strong, flawed, complex, and sexy – a modern girl we all can identify with.

The TALL, DARK AND DEADLY series and THE SECRET LIFE OF AMY BENSEN series, both spent several months on a combination of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling lists.
