A PASSION THIS STRONG: PRICELESS

A helpless pawn in her father’s plan to merge two casinos through marriage, Zoey’s been warned to stay away from the lowlife bounty hunters who’ve come to town.

With millions at stake—and a murderer in hiding—falling in love could be the biggest gamble of all…
Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.
O’Clare has created some very in-depth characters for this novel. I appreciate the fact that although the story is a romantic suspense there are more than two individuals who carry it forward. The varied personalities in the cast complement each other, rather than working at odds or being very similar to one another. My only question was, seriously, what are the chances of both male leads becoming irrevocably distracted by women before they even really get started on their respective jobs, especially when they’re alpha male types who are supposed to be competing.
As a whole, I quite enjoyed this novel and this is definitely an author that I will be reading more of in the future.
