Texas Hold Him
As if losing the war to the Yankees hadn't been bad enough, Lottie Mason now needed $15,000 to keep her ailing father out of prison. The only place she could think of to get that kind of money was a riverboat poker tournament. Problem was, she didn't know a thing about playing cards.

Dyer Straights may have been the best cardsharp in New Orleans, but the true goal of this hardened gunslinger was vengeance, not profit. He didn't have time for a beautiful belle who wouldn't take no for an answer. So to scare her off, he upped the ante with a proposition: He'd give her the lessons she was so desperate for. And if she won the jackpot, she'd owe him one naked night in his bed. He didn't realize she couldn't afford to refuse.

As the cards are dealt and the seduction deepens, the two find they're taking a gamble on a lot more than a good hand and a one-night stand --- they're betting on a lifetime of love.

    For the most part, this book was cute. It takes place in the post-Civil War South. The main character, Lottie, needs to get $15,000 fast, so she decides to learn how to play poker. She also decides to ask the best poker player around to teach her. Shenanigans ensue. I like the premise....

    This was actually not bad, not riveting but still fairly interesting and fun reading.Lottie and Obadiah, otherwise known as Dyer, made a likable couple with secondary characters adding their weight to even out the story and give the reader a chance to digest the developing relationship...

    I really liked the characters, Lottie and Dyer, a lot, which should have meant 4 stars, but there were just too many implausibilities and such in the plot for me to rate it that high. The characters were people I cared about; the backstories were important but didn't overshadow the pre...

    Free download for my Nook. I liked this one, though the likelihood of any woman in this era taking such a chance as this heroine did seems really tiny. She's being blackmailed, and her father is the one at risk should the blackmailer reveal whatever secrets he holds. It's generally har...

    I really liked this book! I've just recently started reading historicals and this time period definitely piqued my interest. I am a huge Gone With the Wind fan, so the pre war and post war times fascinate me. I loved these characters...the main characters, and also the secondary charac...

    Aww, this was just a really cute book. I thought the title was adorable in a corny sort of way and the premise was enough to get me hooked. I didn't know crap about about poker when I started playing poker and I still don't, but I think listening to Dyer's lessons helped me understand ...
