An excerpt from Gambling on Trouble:
Karen forced herself to back up toward the door, but then the man turned and looked at her, and her muscles went on strike again.
Not going anywhere, her dragon pouted. Not leaving my mate.
Not my mate-- she started to insist, but then her eyes locked on his.
Deep, dark, chocolate brown eyes that were earnest and surprised. Like a lost puppy's, desperate to love and be loved, which was crazy, because the man was all muscle and raw power. All alpha.
She cleared her throat sharply, trying to snap back to her senses. That man was no puppy. He was a god damn bear. A grizzly, if she guessed right. A beast that stood way, way up in the food chain. The kind who could tear right through the solid wood of the bar.
Bear shifters were notorious for three things: loyalty, ferocity, and their overly cautious ways. And she didn't have a cautious bone in her body.
So why are you being so damn flighty now? her dragon complained. Bothered by a single bear?
The bear didn't bother her. Not one bit. The notion of a mate, though... That terrified her.
Back up to the door and get away, she ordered her legs, but they didn't even twitch. They forced her to stay there, meeting those soft, bewildered eyes.
If he'd looked at her and ogled, it would have been so, so easy to brush him off. If he'd murmured a lousy pick-up line or started telling her about how many Super Bowls or World Series or Greco-Roman Olympic wrestling medals he'd won, she'd have been out of there in a flash. But he did none of those things. He just looked at her with the same flabbergasted, oh-shit expression she had to have been wearing just then.
Mine, those eyes said. Mate.

The Prequel to Shifters in Vegas
Have you ever been stuck in a situation that had you torn between temptation and desire? Dragon shifter/witch hybrid Karen Proulx didn't bet on the sexy, distracting bear shifter Tanner Lloyd coming her way. She desires sexy Tanner above all else. What will the future bring for them? Wouldn't you love to be in their shoes?
Some say Vegas is the place to let go of inhibitions. Will she be gambling on trouble?
Beware! Karen is side tracked from her personal mission in Vegas. Danger is closer than you think if her impulsive plans fail.
Don’t miss out on this fabulous and spicy novella with lots of romance and drama. Readers get a good plot with this book and it’s entertaining. Expect to get an original storyline with this book.
I’m looking forward to reading more decadent books from the Shifters in Vegas or Charmed in Vegas Series. “Gambling on Trouble” is a prequel to “Gambling on Her Bear” by Anna Lowe.
Readers will be amazed and want more about Tanner and Karen. Reading this novella was exhilarating and exciting! “Gambling on Trouble” (Shifters in Vegas) by Anna Lowe gets 5 stars and a wow!
This novella let's us see their initial meeting, from Karen first arriving in Vegas, determined to steal the Blood Diamond and return it to its actual owners...the dragons. Karen is wandering Vegas when an intoxicating scent calls to her, making her track down the source of it, leading her to Tanner.
Tanner, counting down the days until his job is done so he can return to Idaho, is immediately drawn to the woman watching him. It doesn't take long before he realizes she's his mate and he eagerly follows her wherever she wants to take him.
Suddenly, these two see a different future than the one they've always envisioned for themselves, one that now includes each other.
Will they get their HEA? Will Karen be able to complete her reason for being in Vegas? Will Tanner understand why she's doing it? Can he accept both sides of her heritage? Will Tanner survive Vegas for a few more weeks until he's able to leave? Will Karen go with him?

This is such an amazing start to a awesome romance, this storyline made it so I wanted to read the next storyline that involved Tanner and Karen this just wetted my appetite to read their HEA. I really enjoyed reading this short story. I like the cover and I knew that this would be a fun read. There's nothing better than two characters who have such intense chemistry. Wow! I could get over my surprise this book a great twist that I definitely wasn't expecting! I mean, I knew they would be mates , but I had no idea that they would be so different. There is lots of humor in this story that had me laughing out loud.
Overall, this was another fantastic romance from . which is definitely interesting. I loved every aspect of Karen's personality and the attraction between our two main characters. Anna Lowe is very talented writer and she knows how to build the chemistry between two characters and the chemistry in this story is one you don't want to miss. The storyline is strong, engaging and Fantastic. Her characters are amazing, thoughtful, powerful, exhilarating and lovable. The Dialogue is fascinating, humorous and realistic.
This is a SPECTACULAR Read! This story will give you a feeling of happiness and If you love shifter romance this is definitely a fabulous choice for your TBR list. This is a quick read and I intend to read their HEA asap.
If you believe in the world of shifters the possibilities are endless and fascinating. I highly recommend this book!
We get to go inside Karen and Tanner's heads. We get two chapters one is Karen's POV and the other is Tanner's POV. Both are in Vegas for specific reasons. Both have plans and secrets. We get to see that first time meet and the one night of passion they had out in the desert, before all those plans come into play.
I very much enjoyed this short prequel. It was fun to see their first meet and see how all consuming it is when you find your mate. Destiny loves to sneak up on us all.
Ms. Lowe is an amazing writer and storyteller. She has a way of capturing the reader and pulling us in. Getting us emotionally involved in the characters. I have loved all her paranormal works and highly recommend pick them up.
Rated: 4 Stars
*Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy provided by Anna Lowe with the sole purpose of an honest review. All thoughts, comments and ratings are my own.
The characters are sexy, intriguing and relatable. The drama behind their mating is fast-paced because each abdomen has an ulterior motive.

Karen is in Vegas on a mission. She feels the need to redeem herself with her clan by retrieving the Blood Diamond, a jewel that was in her family’s possession for many generations, only to be “stolen” in a raw deal. Tanner is Vegas for an unknown agenda, his plan all in his mind, and reasons only he knows. While walking down the street, Karen is suddenly overtaken by a scent that only her dragon recognizes…what would appear to be her mate. But dragon’s don’t believe in Fate and Fated Mates. Unable to control her own movements, she follows the smell into a bar, only to find the most hunky of hunks sitting on the barstool at the bar. And, if her sense of smell is correct, he’s all bear, and of course, all her’s. As soon as he scents her, he knows. Slowly turning around, he not only scents her, but as soon as his eyes lay upon her, he’s positive. She’s all dragon, and of course, his. As both try to resist their mating call, neither wanting a mate quite yet, because of their hidden agendas, all hell breaks loose when a gaggle of show girls show up and pounce upon Tanner. Karen’s dragon simply won’t tolerate these women touching her mate.
Lots of action in such a short tale, that you will want to make sure you don’t miss out. It’s true what they say, small packages pack a powerful punch, and this small tale is sure to not disappoint.
I received an ARC of this book and have voluntarily given my honest review.
This is just a short very fun story that was in a box set. It basically gives us the first meeting of Karen and Tanner from Gambling on her Bear (Shifters in Vegas book 2) which is a good read.
Not a real story per se but a fun taster read featuring a snarky witch/dragon shifter who meets her bear shifter mate just before he gets enveloped by Vegas show girls. Karen didn't want a mate until that point but quickly makes her move to show he is hers.
We don’t learn too much about Tanner in this short apart from he is hot but we learn a lot in the book.
Now I have to go read their story again.
