An outrageous flirt and a buttoned-up Frenchman. When journalist Kerrigan Lush is assigned to interview a seriously rich anti-gambling crusader, she imagines a grandfatherly bore with a comb-over. But Alex Beaufort from Paris has plenty of hair – and enough of everything else to make her mouth water.
Irrepressible Kerri suggests a teasing game of strip poker, and they’re soon peeling off their layers of self-protection. Seduction is definitely on the cards - but who's seducing who? And what are the odds? Good enough to take a chance on? Alex uncovers a free-spirited risk-taker with a gambling problem – the last woman he’d ever want in his life. And Kerri finds a driven man with a past so hellish he surely couldn’t heal her deeply buried unhappiness.
Enjoy an international vacation in the South Pacific and see if this couple can build a satisfying future from ashes and hope.
Warning: Contains sexy Frenchman, tropical heat, and enthusiastic outdoor fun and games.
SEDUCTION ON THE CARDS is part of The Wellington Series.

About the Author
Kris writes sizzling contemporary romance, pure and simple. Well, maybe not that pure! They're sexy stories about couples who fall in love, and into bed along the way, just like real people do. The first novel in her new Scarlet Bay trilogy - SUMMER SPARKS - is a lusty romp with a heartbreaking backstory threaded through it. The best of both. The second is SUMMER SECRETS. She's currently writing SUMMER SPICE, and this is available on pre-order. Five of her Wellington books have been published in sweeter editions under the author name of Kerri Peach. If it's fine, Kris gardens. If it's wet, she writes. And if the writing's going well, the garden can look after itself. She's an advertising copywriter and a decor specialist, and the author of 'The Boat Builder's Bed'. More than two million copies have now been downloaded free, and giving away a taste of her work with this one kick-started sales of all her others. Her seven Wellington Series novels are set in the capital city so she can make use of the beautiful harbor in the plots. Her three Heartlands novels follow couples who live in more remote country areas of New Zealand. Her all-time best-seller is 'Taken by the Sheikh'. There's now also 'Desired by the Sheikh', and these are not quite your usual sheikh stories. Four books are now available in Spanish. There's a Spanish version of her website http://www.krispearson.com - click the flags at the top right of it to change languages. Five are currently being translated for China. ~ ~ ~ Kris es una chispeante autora de romántica contemporánea, pura y simplemente. ¡Bueno, quizá no tan pura!

A person who would gamble on the speed paint dries and one who crusades against it....nothing but hilarious and sexy trouble. Really enjoyed the book; there is a bit of sex in it so be aware if that is not your thing.
