This is a two story book. Both were fast paced and quick reads.

A Vegas Cowboy- David aka Daisy, was quickly liked by me and i really felt for him from his short background story.
Things take an interesting turn out on the town and he must confront new feelings.

Vegas,Baby,Vegas- A woman in a man dominated profession gets recognized alot and also stepped on for things but when someone catches her eye, and not in a good way, in her mind at least, Bailey must make quick decisions .
I really liked Bailey except for her one big mistake.

This was a great collection to read, and I love the sneak peaks at other works by these authors. I will be reading more for sure!

This book was a fast read for me but really good. The two main characters are David “Daisy” and Alicia. The accidentally meet at a conference in Las Vegas. Alicia was there as a keynote speaker and Daisy was there to attend the conference as a restaurant owner. Daisy and Alicia literally run into each other at the airport then Daisy saves her poolside from an aggressive stranger. Deciding to have a few drinks and go out for the evening to thank Daisy. The next morning both wake up with extreme hangovers and no memory of the previous night, but do discover quickly they are married. Trying to undo what they have done is not as easy as they thought and their attraction to each other is off the charts. Daisy is struggling after losing his first wife and daughter in a house robbery years ago and Alicia isn’t sure what to do about Daisy. This was a great book and I look forward to reading more from this author.

Gamble On A Cowboy by authors Melissa Keir and D’Ann Lindun

5-Stars

Gamble On A Cowboy consists of two short romance stories featuring Las Vegas and Cowboys. The lead female in each story is very independent, confident, and driven. The lead males were both attractive and focused. Each character was dedicated and passionate about their career choices and I loved that they meshed easily with each of the ladies careers. The storyline of each was easy to follow and difficult to put down. I found it easy to get carried away and mixed up in the drama and romance. This compilation was such a fun read and I definitely recommend it.

I’m typically not a fan of “western romance” or cowboys (probably because I’m a city girl at heart and it is like reading a foreign language) but I decided to take a chance on this 2 story collection. I’m glad I did, because I found both stories enjoyable.

I’m not sure what the connection is between the two authors but for as much as their writing style was similar, it was also very different. Both stories had lovely main characters with backstories that made them be who they are today. Both stories had strong women who weren’t afraid to be a woman in a “man’s world”.

These stories have surprise and tenderness and romance and sexy times. They also had miscommunications and angst and everything that makes a romance fun to read.

Side note: When I read the blurb and there was mention about taking stock to market, I was thinking the “financial market” I was wrong. Hehe

I will be reading stories by both of these authors in the future and recommend this collection.

Gamble on a Cowboy by Melissa Keir & D’Ann Lindun is a combination of 2 great books by 2 amazing authors.
These books were a great way introduce me to two new series. It gave a great insight into what they would be like. They were both lighthearted and easy to read, a great snapshot of what else is to come. The characters were all interesting and easy to connect with. Although short the stories had depth and held my interest well.
I have read Melissa Keir before so knew I would enjoy her work however D’Ann was new to me and I liked the way she had pace and the book had a good flow about it. I will be checking out more from both of these authors in the future for sure.

Gamble on a Cowboy was a fabulous read! I have read stories by Melissa Keir previously and I knew I loved her writing but I was also really looking forward to reading work by D’Ann Lindun – a new to me author! Well I think I can definitely add her to my new list of authors to love! I have a soft spot for western romance stories and both of these definitely hit the spot!! Both of these novella’s would have been equally as amazing as full length novels – I was impressed with how the authors managed to cram so much into their short stories, I wasn’t left wanting more, well I was only because they were brilliant reads and not because I felt like I was missing anything. I really liked all of the characters, I thought that they were all really likeable and I connected with them all.
I would absolutely recommend these two wonderful short, sweet romance reads, I don’t think you will be disappointed!

Gamble on a Cowboy by Melissa Keir and D’Ann Lindun is a contemporary (western) romance. In this book, you will have A Vegas Cowboy by Melissa Keir and Vegas, Baby, Vegas by D’Ann Lindun. Both of these authors are excellent authors on their own; the combination of these two stories were perfectly fit. In A Vegas Cowboy, this is truly a second chance romance and the characters were stunning. I found the story line to be enlightening, fun and pleasant to read. The main characters were well established and raw. In Vegas, Baby, Vegas, the reader is given a bit more country feel to the story, but no less excellent in its imagery. The characters were right on pace, along with an energetic feeling plot and sequence of events. I enjoyed both of these stories!

Gamble On A Cowboy is a fantastic book comprised of two captivating western romances written by Melissa Keir and D’Ann Lindun. These two talented authors have teamed up to each bring us a story centred around Cowboys and Vegas. The stories are well written, romantic, sweet, touching and emotional.
The book contains:

A Vegas Cowboy By: Melissa Keir

Alicia Cortez has just arrived in Vegas for the National Restaurateurs Convention as the keynote speaker. She’s an expert at turning failing businesses around and making them profitable and successful. When she takes a tumble leaving the airport, a very sexy stranger saves her from what could have been a very painful landing. Little does she suspect that in only a matter of hours she will wake up married to the hunk. How could that happen in such a short time? Well that’s the magic of Vegas!
David MacKenzie is in Vegas to accept an award. He hopes that the recognition will bring his small-town restaurant some extra attention and is also a chance for him to expand his marketing. He loved his restaurant and small town life, but things weren’t the same since his wife and daughter died 6 years ago. To keep his mind off things, he channelled all his time and energy into the business, so he certainly wasn’t interested in another relationship- he’d had his chance at love, then it was snatched away. So, how does he end up married? If you love cowboys, Vegas, Second chances, love at first sight, humour, funny banter, emotion, and quick, easy reads- then this is definitely a story for you!

Vegas, Baby, Vegas By: D’Ann Lindun

For Bailey McKlellen and Maverick Cartwright, it was sparks and steam right from the moment they crossed paths. He irritated her just as much as he attracted her. She was determined to carry on with business and not let him distract or undermine her. As a female stock contractor, she’d worked hard to earn her respected reputation, and she wasn’t going to let some handsome new-comer take that away from her. But the guy is a thorn in her side, and an itch she needs to scratch. So, after a few drinks one night, she decides the best way to get him out of her head and get back to business, is to ‘hook-up’ with him- then he’d be out of her system. But things don’t work out that way, and her night of passion gives her much more than she ever expected.
Add some sabotage, a little danger, some angst, drama, tension, chemistry, and a little mystery- and this story really takes off. Ms. Lindun delivers a steamy, heart-warming read!

 

Thank you, Ms. Keir & Ms. Lindun!
