At Casino Fortuna, stakes are high and the nights are hot…
A cheat is cashing in on the Strip, where deadly schemes lurk beneath the glitz and glamour. FBI agent-turned-consultant Kate Daniels hits the jackpot with her new assignment, hired by Vegas’ biggest name to ensure his casino isn’t a target. Fortuna is a high roller’s paradise, all gleaming marble and dollar signs. Even a single flaw in security could cost big bucks. Kate can’t afford distractions. Especially the tall, dark and perfectly chiseled kind. Business and pleasure don’t mix. And sleeping with the boss is a dangerous gamble.
Fortuna’s VP of casino operations, Ross Cooper, is gaming’s golden boy. He’s got a head for business, an eye for beautiful women, and a love for the Vegas lifestyle. When he spots a gorgeous redhead casing his blackjack tables, Ross is more than a little intrigued—he’s suspicious. But Kate is no thief…she’s working for him? Ross hates surprises almost as much as the idea of trouble in his casino.
Kate quickly proves she’s more than a pretty face. Her instincts and smarts are just as enticing. And when her investigation turns deadly, Ross will risk it all to keep her by his side.

The House Always Wins
Wowsers! This was a fun ride. Adrienne Giordano created an amazing cast of characters for this story. And to take a page from Kate's book (literally) I had to fan myself more than once!
I think what I loved most about this book was Kate. Giordano created a very complex, strong female character that wasn't aggressive, a maneater, frigid or a witch. Kate was very self possessed and understood her own self-worth, without being arrogant or disingenuous. More than once she stood up for herself and called out others on their attitudes. I loved the "if you ever speak to me again like that" lines she used several times. She was also a strong, capable woman in law enforcement that somehow managed to be feminine at the same time. I instantly connected with her. I would love to see more characters that portrayed like this.
Ross, well what can I say? You just want one. His character showed a lot of growth throughout the story and showed real-life reactions and motivations. I loved the different phases he went through and what came out the other side. Giordano also had a cast of supporting characters that we well developed and added to the entire story arc. A story that was just as compelling as the characters she created.
