BLACKJACK AND MOONLIGHT
Braden grabs readers’ attention from page one and never disappoints. Elise’s inability to invest herself emotionally plays out until she finds herself gradually falling in love, despite all protestations. Jack’s tenacity is a force of its own. The third book in the Blackjack Quartet is a standout.
It’s his first day on the bench and federal judge Jack “Blackjack” McIntyre makes a huge mistake. He recuses himself from the case and declares he’s in love with the defense attorney, Elise Carroll. As someone who put himself through law school playing blackjack, he doesn’t realize his all-out attack on her senses is a tactical error. Elise doesn’t believe in love, at first sight or otherwise. Even after she meets Jack’s family and sees their happily wedded bliss, Elise is still skeptical. She cannot deny that she and Jack have a great time in the bedroom, but she’s unwilling to commit to anything else, especially marriage. (MAGDALENBRADEN.COM, dl $2.99)
