Four sisters named after royalty, with dowries fit for a queen. Their Gypsy fortuneteller mother predicted each would marry a prince…of sorts.
She's a princess with more to lose than her dowry.
Las Vegas restaurateur Grace Parlier doesn't gamble, but she's risking her dowry on a new business with her late father's friend because casino owner Charles Harmon has what she wants: location, location, location. The money may have been earmarked for a wedding, but everyone knows Grace has terrible taste in men. Look at the way her heart races every time her family's latest Romani rescue comes close. But how could an ex-con from Detroit possibly be the prince she was meant to marry?
He's a Detroit cop with no skin in the game—or so he wants to believe.
Nick Lightner goes undercover in Vegas for one reason only: to take down scumbag Charles Harmon. Does he believe Lucky Chuck is a human serpent threatening his birth father's family? Hell, no. Nick knows who he is and where his allegiance lies. Certainly not with a sexy "princess" who makes the few drops of Romani blood in his veins run hotter than a winning streak at the craps table. His heart maintains a safe distance…until the princess takes a bullet meant for him, then all bets are off.

I like how the characters interacted with each other. Can't wait to read the rest of the story!
This is a great start to a new family saga. The storyline is different in that it starts with the youngest sisters story, and they all have had past issues and are not just starting life fresh. There is drama, suspense, romance, humor and intrigue. The story is well written and the characters well developed. I enjoyed all the quirky and interesting Romani family and friends that were introduced. I look forward to reading more of their stories.. I really enjoyed this book and can highly recommend.

Now things are personal and he will do whatever it takes for family. Can Nick keep Grace safe and her dowry intact, keep his cover under wrap and bring Charles down or will it all blow up??
Wow! What a start to a new series. This book has everything we have come to expect from Debra Salonen - well written characters who spring to life, romance and a suspenseful plot with many twists and turns. I have to start a Debra Salonen book early in the day or I will be up all night because I can never put her books down. Betting on Love promises to be a great series. I hate to wait for the next story!
