At Casino Fortuna, stakes are high and the nights are hot…
FBI agent-turned-consultant Kate Daniels hit the jackpot with her new assignment. A cheat is cashing in on the Strip, and she’s hired by Vegas’ biggest name to ensure his glamorous 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.

Review by Barbara:
A Must Read just about sums it up!
I want to start by saying I love suspenseful romance books and when you throw in humor how can you possibly go wrong, right? Well Deadly Odds most definitely did not go wrong!
The story takes place in Vegas where a string of crossroaders are hitting various casinos (FYI crossroaders are what the old timers called cheaters). Kate has been hired by the new casino (just outside of town) to test their security. Kate is a former FBI agent who used to tracked cheaters with a special unit for the bureau but now works for a private security firm. While working the floor, Kate quickly learns all is not right at the new Fortuna Casino. She also meets Ross Cooper, the casino’s handsome VP. Ross is instantly smitten with Kate (of course at this point he has no clue why she is there). But Kate is onto his womanizing ways and doesn’t fall at his feet like most women do. (Let the hilarity begin)
The author has done an awesome job of weaving a hilarious romantic story with a dangerous situation. The series of twists and turns will keep you turning the pages as Kate and Ross get closer to finding out just exactly what’s going on at the casino. This is a must read in my humble opinion, one your heart and funny bone will be very glad you read. 2 Thumbs up for a great book 1 and this reader is looking forward to book 2 of the series.
