Taking a Gamble by Victoria Vane

I mentioned in my last post that 2016 would be a year of taking chances for me and my hot new Hotel Rodeo series is a very appropriate start....

hell-on-heels-300x250-AdBibTODAY IS RELEASE DAY for HELL ON HEELS, book #1 in my Smart and Sexy HOTEL RODEO, Las Vegas set contemporary romance series. One of the things I love best about this unique series is the very flawed but sympathetic characters. Ty Morgan is a true cowboy. He grew up on a ranch in Oklahoma where his father was a partner in a rodeo production company but gore gored to death by a bull when Ty was a boy. Ty followed closely in his father's footsteps and almost ended up the same way until his father's ex-partner Tom, stepped in and gave Ty a chance to start over by running his Las Vegas hotel. Ty is divorced, has major issues with commitment, and is a struggling alcoholic.

Monica Brandt is a hard-as nails New York investment banker who grew up in boarding schools and never knew her real father, Tom Brandt until he struck big oil and her mother sued him for 18 years of back child support. Under her tough exterior, Monica is actually a very caring and loyal person who only wants love and acceptance. Her father, Tom is the only one in her life, including her fiancé, who has every come close to filling that need.

Ty and Monica both love Tom. Tom is what first draws them together, but love for him also drives them apart. Tom and Ty share a dream that down-to-earth Monica can't understand. Monica only wants to protect her father and his business interests from the cowboy she doesn't understand or trust.

Ty and Monica are total opposites in their personalities, and their outlook on life, yet there's something powerful and indefinable that pulls them to each other. And that's the magic of writing romance to me—love is mysterious and unpredictable. We can never know where or when cupid will strike!


Hell on Heels (Hotel Rodeo #1) by Victoria Vane


Place Your Bet... The Hotel Rodeo in Las Vegas has seen better days, but managing partner Ty Morgan has come up with a way to return it to its former glory. His plan looks promising until the unthinkable happens. Suddenly Ty is working for the boss’s daughter. And Miss Monica Brandt, hot as she may be, doesn’t share his vision…

Roll The Dice...She left a fabulous career and a frustrated fiancé in New York to move to Vegas and save her father’s investment. But now Monica is locking horns with a sexy cowboy-turned-businessman. What does Ty think he can do that she can’t? All Monica knows is that she doesn’t dare trust him—or is it herself she doesn’t trust?...

And Win...The battle lines are drawn. The stakes are high. And the attraction can’t be denied—especially the more closely Ty and Monica have to work together. Some odds are just meant to be played, and with chemistry this electric, it may be time to grab life by the horns…

Two to Wrangle (Hotel Rodeo#2)

A Country Boy ... Maybe having a hot and heavy affair with the boss’s daughter wasn’t the smartest move. But country boy Ty Morgan didn’t regret a moment with city girl Monica Brandt…until she left Las Vegas to return to her life in New York. When devastating news sends her running back, Ty can’t help but open his arms. His heart, however, is another matter.

And A City Girl...Now that Ty has what he’s always wanted—controlling interest in Hotel Rodeo—Monica is certain their time together is at an end. Then Ty asks her to come on board as a partner. Maybe it’s just her money he needs, but the chance to stick close to the sexy wrangler sure could make work a whole lot more interesting.

Get Ready To Tango...Their partnership doesn’t come without a heap of problems. The two can’t agree on anything—except their iron-hot attraction. As the hotel’s Grand Opening approaches, the truth is all too clear: Ty and Monica must find a way to mix business with pleasure if they have any shot at dancing off into the sunset together… Coming February 15th.

    Thanks, Victoria. These sound like a couple of fun reads. Apparently what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas!

    Congratulations and good luck!

    Absolutely loved the trailer! I’ve got a feeling I’ll feel the same way about the series.
