Review | Don’t Bet On It

Hott Synopsis:

Don't Bet On It

Ninety-eight seconds.

Quite a lot can happen in ninety-eight seconds. You can be thoroughly seduced. You can find yourself speechless. You can be thoroughly kissed. You can get yourself a date with a serial killer. Or Not.

But you can definitely lose a bet in ninety-eight seconds. Which is how Chloe Watson finds herself on a date with a complete stranger she can only hope isn’t a serial killer.

Hott Review:

Don’t Bet On It was absolutely adorable! This is a short sweet romance that’s a lot of fun and not too deep nor too ‘romantic’.

Perfect for an afternoon at the pool!

Author Bio:

My published novels (with Astraea Press) are: “Called to Arms Again” (May 2013), “Rescued By That New Guy in Town” (Oct. 2012), and “The Overnighter’s Secrets” (May 2012). Also the novella “Don’t Bet On It” … which released in April 2014. I have two more novels contracted with AP and expect them to be released during 2014.
With Dingbat Publishing, I have the screwball comedy “Curing the Uncommon Man-Cold” (Dec. 2013) and a contract for its prequel, “Scratching the Seven-Month Itch” (which should be released by July 2014).
Romantic comedy and romantic suspense are among nine completed novel manuscripts.
I’ve also published — as a short companion piece to “Called to Arms Again” — the story, “Echo Taps” (released in June 2013)… and a short story in the AP anthology, “Love and Diamonds”.
I’m co-author of two non-fiction monographs (about librarianship) with a royalty publisher, plus a signed chapter in another book and a signed article in a specialty encyclopedia. I’ve also published articles, book reviews, and over 120 poems; my writing has won nearly 40 awards, including several in national contests. As a newspaper photo-journalist, I published about 150 bylined newspaper articles, and some 100 bylined photos.
I worked nearly 30 years in the field of librarianship. I’m a decorated veteran of U.S. Air Force (including a remote tour of duty in the Arctic, at Thule AB in N.W. Greenland).
I’m the married parent of two and grandparent of six.

  1. Thank you for this terrific review. I absolutely love it when a reader “gets” my story so completely.
    You’ve made my week!

      1. if you enjoyed the humor of this one, I think you’d like “Curing the Uncommon Man-Cold” — published in Dec. 2013 by Dingbat Publishing.

      2. I just checked with my publisher and she’d be happy to provide a review copy of “Curing the Uncommon Man-Cold” if you’d be willing to read and review it.
