About the Author

With forty-two books in print, award-winning author Sharon Sala, who also writes as Dinah McCall, still has to remind herself from time to time that this isn't a dream.

She learned to read at the age of four and has had her nose in a book ever since. Her introduction into romance came at an early age through the stories of Zane Gray, Grace Livingston Hill and Emily Loring. Her pride in contributing to the genre is echoed by the letters of her fans.

She's a four-time RITA finalist, Winner of the Janet Dailey Award, three-time Career Achievement winner from Romantic Times magazine, four-time winner of the National Reader's Choice Award and five-time winner of the Colorado Romance Writer's Award of Excellence, as well as numerous other industry awards.

Her books are regularly on bestseller lists, such as the New York Times extended list, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Waldenbooks mass market, and many others.

She claims that, for her, learning to read was a matter of evolution, but learning to write and then being published was a revolution. It changed her life, her world and her fate.

Queen Houston has spent her whole life scraping by, and making due for herself and her two younger sisters. She's always dreamed of not having anyone but herself to worry about, of being footloose and fancy-free. Johnny, the father that she'd parented as much as she had her sisters, has recently passed away. The small house that Johnny had won in a card game had always been where they'd lived, but had never really been much of a home, so the three sisters decide to sell it and split the proceeds, and go find their dreams.
Queen hasn't decided yet exactly where she is going, but Arizona sounds like it is far from the coal dust and poverty that she's known all her life, so she buys a bus ticket, and decides she'll just play it by ear. Little does she know a broken down bus, and a decision to hop the next bus that passes by, even if it is going to Snow Gap, Colorado, will help the course of her life along. Hopping off the bus to stretch, Queen sees three little boys talking to the sheriff, and a woman from the Welfare services. Having an innate dislike of the welfare system left over from her own childhood, Queen takes fate in her hands and hops in to help the three boys. Finding that their father seems to be missing, she claims to be their aunt, and returns home with them to help them avoid being taken into custody.
It's not long before the children's father, Cody Bonner, returns home to find his home invaded by Queen, his children acting like they'd found a long lost friend, and himself questioning his sanity by wanting this stranger to stay. Hiring Queen to be his housekeeper, and to watch over the boys, Cody begins to realize that Queen means much more to him that just a housekeeper. It's not long before Cody and Queen find themselves falling in love...

This was my first Sharon Sala book and I was blown away. The characters are well developed and real. An emotional read and one that I've reread several times. It's unfortunate that this book is out of print. If you are lucky enough to find one, I'd suggest you hang onto it and those who are looking for it: it's well worth the price. Or almost.<G> I loved this story. I loved the characters. I simply wanted the story to go on and on and on... This book is screaming for reprint! REPRINT THIS BOOK!

In their old hometown the Houston girls were treated as white trash. So when they finally sold their place, they used the money to get as far away as fast as possible. Queen Houston, the eldest, took the bus determined to enjoy a fresh start and NOT raise any kids anytime soon. Little did she know what surprise fate had in store. . .would lead her to find her true heart's desire.
The 2nd fantastic book in the Gambler's Daughters series! Don't miss the 1st & 3rd in the series, "Diamond" and "Lucky"!

This was a wonderful story about a strong willed woman who will not let herself down and is true to herself. She finds love were she least expects it and it's more touching and wonderful for that fact.
Queen is the oldest of three girls. Her father has died, but even when he was alive he was not there for his girls. He did manage to teach them not to trust men, slick comments, and things that seem to good to be true. He was a gambler, and not a good one so they lived on the fringes of society in a small backwood Tennesse town, that is until Johnny dies and the girls decide that it is time to move on. Queen bids farwell to her younger sisters as they each take a different road. Queen gets on a bus and heads to Arizona. She wants to be as far away from coal smoke and mountains as she can get. Fate steps in and soon Queen finds herself headed toward Colorado and her destiny.
Cody Bonner has suffered much in his life. He was an Air Force pilot but after the death of his wife he retires so he can be home with his 3 sons. They have suffered cruelly at the hands of their grandmother and he will do anything to keep that woman away from his kids. The grandmother feels that Cody is not fit to be a parent and has had the kids in and out of court trying to prove it. A set of circumstances lead Cody's boys to a chance encounter with Queen. From there the lessons that will be learned are heartwarming and are learned by all. Love does save the day.
This is a wonderful book and a does justice to this strong willed, but soft on the inside woman. This is second in the series of the Gamblers Daughter trilogy but stands alone if you have not read the first one. Wonderful characterization, fast paced, and romantic. A perfect way to spend the evening.

Wow!!! This was an excellent book. Queen was a fiesty, yet
wonderful character who had to overcome several of life's harsh
obstacles before she found her home with a handsome man and his
three lovable sons. If you have never read the series, then I
strongly suggest you do. It is well worth it to read this heartwarming novel from one of the best authors I have ever come across.

What can you say about a good Sharon Sala book but settle in, get ready and enjoy and you get to enjoy it three different ways! Triology - I'd read Queen first, than Diamond and last but not least lucky. I just wish she came out with one more that would take place afterwards. Loved it, the characters, story were fun, enjoyable ---- laughs and depths -- and I just love revisiting each in each one!
