IAN'S ULTIMATE GAMBLE
Ostensibly on vacation, Brooke Chamberlain has been booked into the luxurious Rolling Cascade to do a discreet surveillance on her former flame, Ian Westmoreland. Things blew up between them years before, leaving Brooke wounded and Ian furiously putting miles between them. When Brooke shows up back in his life, he's mistrustful and, in what could prove to be Ian's Ultimate Gamble (3), he's determined to purge himself of any leftover feelings by plunging into a passionate, no-strings affair. Brenda Jackson hooks hero and heroine with feelings long denied and draws her readers in, only to disappoint them with a too-neat conclusion.
