About the Author

After 25 years of teaching high school biology, Lisa decided to tackle her first novel. It was, of course, abysmal, but the love of writing took hold, giving her a new goal in life. She wanted to be published by the time she retired from teaching. Seven novels and four years later, she sold her first manuscript to Dorchester Publishing four weeks after retiring from the classroom.

Lisa and her husband live on a 70 acre farm in southern Ohio with a Maltese who thinks he owns the place. She has two grown and married children and the world’s most perfect granddaughter, who also thinks she owns the place—though in her case, that might be right.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is Ms Cooke's first story and an enjoyable reading. I enjoyed it on several levels. The plot made sense, the pace was fast and slow where needed and the actions, behaviors fit the situations.
It has been noted that the relationship between Lottie and Newt was unbelievable. I disagree. I have met people I have felt a connection with, bonded and have become best of friends in a short period of time. Newt is an experienced man, he has to learn how to read people; in his field, gambling, he has to be able to read the person or he would not succeed. Sally, she has seen it all, and in a life like that, you learn real quick how to judge a person.
Dryer was a believable hero, a man who had lost his family. He was seeking the murderer and didn't want to chance losing his heart again. He wan't perfect, he had his flaws; but he was, as Lottie stated, a good man. Lottie was believable, a young woman who was forced, due to circumstances, to make choices and behave in a manner a female of her class wouldn't have. We all know someone who refuses to walk to the beat of the drum. Lottie is one of those women, she walked outside the box and does what needs to be done to protect her father.
I loved the scenes between the hero and herione. Where she is asking why doesn't the Ace stand for a one, I laughed out loud. Dryer's sense of humor, teasing her about the name of the horse caused a big grin on my face. The farting jackass, LOL, the author really has a good sense of humor to put such events in the book. Her red herring was a good touch also; had me wondering okay, who/where's the bad guy?
I read lots of books where the hero and heroine are jumping each other before the third chapter.

STORY BRIEF:
The New Orleans Mason family lost their land and wealth due to the Civil War and carpetbaggers. Harold was a confederate soldier who suffered a stroke and lives with his daughter Lottie in a small house. A blackmailer tells Lottie he saw Harold commit a murder and will tell the authorities unless Lottie gives him $15,000. Harold's mind is too weak to remember or defend himself, and Lottie fears he will go to jail. She hears about a gambling tournament four weeks away and gets a job as a waitress on a riverboat. She wants to hire Dyer, a riverboat gambler, to teach her to gamble. She hopes to win the national tournament and pay the blackmailer with her winnings. Dyer refuses at first but after a couple of days he agrees to teach her. Dyer's wife and son were killed seven years earlier. He is hunting for the killer.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
The plot and mechanics were contrived. There was too much telling, not enough showing. The events and interactions weren't believable enough for me. For example, Newt was Dyer's friend. Newt meets Lottie for the first time, briefly speaks with her, and from that moment on he acts like her big brother. On page 79, Newt says to Dyer: "Just remember, a girl like Lottie wouldn't do what she's doing without a damn good reason." (Newt doesn't know her reason.) Dyer says "She doesn't stand a snowball's chance in hell of winning that tournament." Newt says "Don't underestimate her. She has more determination than any lady I've ever met." Dyer says "Determination is one thing, but we're talking about mastering poker with enough skill to beat some of the best players in the country." Newt says "I wouldn't put it past her." I didn't buy it.

I love when authors throw in humor in their romance novels. Cooke did just this! Dryer and Lottie have great chemistry and dialoge. It was hard to put it down!! In fact, I didn't want it to end! There are some "steamy" parts, but they were very nicely written and not trashy as some can get. I hope that the books that follow from this author are just as witty!

This book was quite enjoyable there are moments when actually laugh out loud and moments when you feel the other characters embarrassment. I found it quite believable a lot of the story and enjoyed the characters greatly. One actually gets the feel for the characters and doesn't leave you feeling rushed through the plot or lacking there of. I would greatly recommend this book.

I loved this historical romance by Lisa Cooke set in the old west. It was so much fun to read and as soon as I read page one, I was drawn in by the rich characters, great actions, fantastic humor that made me laugh out loud. I loved the sexual tension that at times sent shivers all the way to my toes and I was so sad to see it end.

Lisa's writing brings the characters to life and you feel as if they could be real. I loved the situations that they found themselves in while on the river boat and ate the book up. There is real chemistry between Lottie and Dyer and they throw each other off balance and it is so fun to see. Especially as Dyer tries to teach Lottie the fine art of poker.

There were tons of unexpected twists and turns, great, witty, natural dialogue, and tons of great fun! I couldn't put this book down, I felt like I was watching a movie and couldn't get enough. I immediately was hooked and loved how Lisa draws you into the character's heads and you really care about them and their problems.

I am a huge fan of Lisa Cooke and would recommend her book in a heart beat. As matter of fact I can't wait to get my hands on her next book!
