I have a three book series out – three novellas, really – that can be purchased separately, or as a single print book. If you like a little science fiction with your romance, you’ll love the Gambling on Love series.
The first book is: The Turn of the Card: Jess Windemere’s father lost her in a game of cards. Sent to a distant planet to be bound to a stranger, she is determined to regain her freedom. The Turn of the Card Book 1 of Vicky Burkholder’s new romance series, Gambling on Love, is a rollicking space adventure you won’t want to miss. When the turn of a card can seal your fate, you better stack the deck!
Jessica Windemere loses her freedom when her father bets her in a poker game. But she isn’t willing to accept her fate without a fight. To have her revenge, she first must survive an unknown world while contracted as some stranger’s wife. She wants nothing more to do with men until a huge, dark god rides into her camp. Can she risk losing her new love on the turn of a card?
Kiernan Randall is on his way home from a trading mission. The group of abandoned women he finds were definitely not expected, especially their feisty red-haired leader. She is contracted to his enemy, but gives herself to him and firmly entwines his heart. Can he trust her enough to let her wager their future together on her skill with cards?
Second Book: Lovin’ the Odds: Catch her, kill her, or kiss her? So many choices, so little time. But Carter Jamison has to decide one way or the other what to do about Sabrina Rutledge. Wounded, hunted, and stranded on a desert planet, they will need to put their distrust aside and work together to survive. Vicky Burkholder brings you Lovin’ the Odds Book 2 of her action-packed romance series, Gambling on Love.
It’s Carter Jamison’s job to catch Sabrina Rutledge and return her to her boss, dead or alive. What he hadn’t counted on was falling for her, again. She’d broken his heart once. Could he forgive her and save her? Or would he turn her over to the tyrant who owned her and walk away? When Sabrina sees who’s come after her, part of her is happy, another part is dismayed. He’d burned her once. Would he help her now? Or turn her in?
Both Carter and Sabrina have been lied to, manipulated, and used. Trust is not something either one does easily. With assassins after them, injured and stranded in the middle of an alien desert, they will need to learn to trust each other as they once did in order to survive. But can they do so before nature and her boss take care of them both?
