Four sisters named after royalty, with dowries fit for a queen. Their Gypsy fortuneteller mother predicted each would marry a prince…of sorts.
Screw Prince Charming. She's got a baby to save.
Liz Parlier returned from a humanitarian tour in Iraq a changed person. Her family can't reach their "healer's" heart because it stayed in India—where Liz went to recuperate and fell in love with an orphaned baby she's determined to adopt. Her fragile house of cards doesn't have room for a mysterious gardener with a questionable past, but something about David Baines tugs at her wounded soul.
He's died before. He knows the drill.
David Baines is alone by choice—it's easier to disappear. But he's only human, and Liz pulls him to her like tumbleweed to a fence. Keeping her out of the line of fire when his past catches up with him proves impossible, so together they confront the "man of darkness" her Gypsy fortuneteller mother warned about. But will they be too late to save the "child of light"?

There are plenty of twists and turns to keep you turning pages. The characters feel real. Liz and David have sparks and chemistry from the start. I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Another awesome tale in the Betting on Love series. I adore these Parlier sisters. Debra Salonen is a master at adding just the right amount of suspense to her stories. It does not hurt that David brought Liz Ethel M chocolates (which are some of my favorites)! Wonderful characters abound in this large Parlier extended family. This story is a perfect blend of romance and suspense. I am eagerly awaiting book 4.
