Prince Alexander Ivanov has to risk it all to save his reputation and livelihood . . .

When one of the prince's employees disappears from his Russian Nights Casino, the Prince Alexander suddenly finds himself scrambling to prove to the FBI that he and his business have nothing to do with the Russian mob and a dangerous money laundering ring. Alexander thinks he's totally prepared to deal with the FBI Agent sent to investigate, until the very sexy and determined professional challenges his patience and his desire to keep it all business.

FBI Special Agent Kathleen Martinez has no reason to trust the rich and pampered prince . . .

Especially since Kathleen believes that Prince Alexander was behind a human trafficking ring which she'd shut down two years earlier, but not without the loss of a woman's life. When she's asked to go undercover in the prince's casino, she won't pass up the chance to finally bring him to justice. But Kathleen quickly realizes that the prince is nothing like she expected and that battling her attraction to the man may risk her life, heart, and career.

Love this story! Especially the prince. Hurricane Sandy's devastation played into the plot which I loved because it's so current. Looking forward to reading more from Caridad!

3.5 Stars This was a quick, fun read with romance, action and some suspense. Both Kathleen and Alexander’s characters were well crafted with interesting histories and I loved the way they interacted with one another. The secondary characters of Princess Tatiana and Detective Peter Roman were great, and the groundwork that was laid out shows great promise for a future story about them. Because of the way the timeline of the story was laid out, I did feel like the romance portion of the story was a bit rushed, which is why this didn’t quite get 4 stars from me, but other than that, Caridad Piñeiro always delivers a great book with interesting characters and great attention to capturing the location and atmosphere of the settings she uses. Another great read!

Reviewed by: Nadene Book provided by: Publisher Review originally posted at Romancing the Book First of all I must say I absolutely love romantic suspense novels and so when I read the blurb for The Prince’s Gamble I knew I had to read this book. This is my first time reading this author’s work and I was eager to discover how this story would develop. Unfortunately it did not have that WOW factor. Alex Ivanov, the main male character, is a Russian Prince who owns and operates a casino in Las Vegas. He was from old money. Alex was hard working and was intent on proving that he did not need his family’s wealth to survive. He was a compassionate person and was always looking out for his staff and for those who were in need. Kathleen Martinez is a FBI agent who was hell bent on taking down Prince Alex Ivanov as she believed that he was somehow involved in human trafficking. Kathleen was a tough as nails female and she had no patience for the rich and famous as such she found her attraction to the prince quite puzzling. For some reason while reading about her I kept picturing Gracie Hart from the movie Miss Congeniality. I felt that romance between Kathleen and Alex was a bit contrived. I believe that the path to their relationship could have been better developed. It went much too smoothly in light of the fact that they were both from different worlds. There was no insight as to how they were able to overcome their differences so that they could be together. The only thing that seemed to be going for them was the love scenes which were steamy and hot. The supporting casts were interesting especially Princess Tatiana (the prince’s sister) and Detective Peter Roman. It was obvious that there was a connection between these two and I hope that the author will give them their own story. The storyline was good but it was severely lacking in suspense and as such did not leave me with that nail biting, on the edge of my seat feeling that is expected from this type of story. For me there were no twists to this story. The action was good which resulted in the story being fast-paced. The story was interesting enough to hold my attention from the beginning. The story was quite descriptive which made me feel that I was actually a part of the story and not just a bystander. Overall this was an ok read. Although I was not completely impressed by this particular story I would still recommend it to readers who would find this type of story appealing.

I've read several books by Caridad Piñeiro and she writes good cop.  The Prince's Gamble is no different.   Russian Prince Alexander Ivanov has a missing hostess from his casino in Atlantic City, NJ.  He has also discovered that someone may be using his casino to launder money.  His honor and his business are at risk.  The FBI in the person of Special Agent Kathleen Martinez is called in.  She doesn't trust the hot Russian as far as she can throw him. As they work together to find the hostess and whoever is laundering money they find that people aren't always as you imagine them to be and in their case they may just be for each other. This wonderful romantic suspense story is a quick intense story.  The push pull of personalities and their responsibilities reflect a reality that is often missing from short romantic tales.    I was also humbled by Caridad Piñeiro and her pledge of her share of the profit from the sale of this book to the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund.
