My newest book, BETTING ON LOVE IN VEGAS, which releases March 22, 2017, takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada. Why did I pick this locale? Because I’ve been to Vegas. Twice. I’ve got fond memories from almost twenty years ago. Back when my husband and I didn’t have children, so we had free time—and free cash.
Back then, my husband and I walked the Las Vegas Strip with wide-eyed wonderment. We gawked at the hotels. We ate like gods at the many buffets. We had fun gambling. (My boss gave me a hundred dollars to bet on his behalf. As instructed, I dutifully placed his chip on his specific number, at the “magic time,” on the roulette wheel. And then lost it all. Fortunately, I managed to keep my job.)
To this day, a poster of Las Vegas decorates my office wall. I work in a city located thousands of miles away, and yet, my Vegas poster acts like a magical window when I long to escape the workaday blues.
For me, writing about places I’ve traveled to suits many purposes. It allows me to relive fond memories of fun destinations. It makes for an exciting backdrop to my stories. It triggers my imagination for new adventures. And most of all, lets me believe I am somewhere else. Even if only for a little while.
Hopefully when people read BETTING ON LOVE IN LAS VEGAS, they will think they are in Las Vegas, too.
Does travel impact your life?
Book blurb for BETTING ON LOVE IN VEGAS
Catherine “Cat” Warner has problems. The profits from her inns are down. The pressure from her parents is up. Her love life is non-existent. But Cat did manage to get the attention of tough, powerful, gorgeous hotel magnate Ty Orland. Unfortunately, his interest in her is for all the wrong reasons. Instead of wanting Cat, this debonair CEO only wants her land—a parcel he desperately needs for his next big development deal. Too bad, it’s not for sale. A people pleaser by nature, Cat knows to stand strong. If she caves in to the demands of this sexy, alluring man, it will be her own neck on the line.
Ty Orland has a lot of things going for him. Success. Power. Respect. Unfortunately, he’s also got an old chip on his shoulder and a new financial nightmare. His development deal is going down in flames—and fast. His only way out is if Cat sells him her strategically located parcel. But romancing the land from her is not easy when love gets in the way. The woman is as beautiful as she is beguiling. And Ty no longer knows which prize is more valuable.
