Boston cop Mike Corwin has always tried to ignore the ancient family curse that dooms the Corwin men to lose both love and fortune if they marry for love. Yet when he wakes after an impulsive Vegas marriage to find his sexy new wife, Amber Rose, and the $150,000 he'd won gone, he thinks there may be something to it after all. But with her father's life on the line, Amber had no choice but to take the cash and play along with her former partner in one last card-counting con—a decision that eventually has her running from thugs and back into Mike's wary, unwelcoming arms. VERDICT Quirky, even slightly crazy secondary characters join these strongly developed protagonists and add to the fun in this sassy, sexy story with a rapid-fire pace. Second in Phillips's trilogy about the Corwin curse, this winner will send readers looking for the rest. Phillips (Lucky Charm) lives in Purchase, NY.
