Abby’s Bluff by Heather Hart
Release Day: July 1st 2015
Abielle O’Sullivan’s world is turned on its axis when her boyfriend is killed in a motorcycle crash. To break the ensuing months-long cycle of self-destructive grief, her bestie, Miah, buys plane tickets and first class accommodation for a mad-ass weekend in Las Vegas. On their very first night, Abby meets Joel; an aloof but streetwise card sharp who is drawn to the cautious and sad-eyed beauty. He encourages the two friends to try their hands at the poker tables.
When Miah gets out-of-control drunk and loses more than she can pay, Joel offers Abby an unusual way out of the jam. Depending upon who wins one game of high-card, the alpha male will either cover Miah’s losses, or Abby will become his sex slave for the duration of the rest of her stay in Vegas. Desperately wanting to help her friend, Abby is sorely tempted by his offer, even though she is not a gambling woman. Finally, she takes a chance and plays the game.
When she loses the draw, Abby’s once limited sexual horizons are pushed to their limits.
With his understanding and sympathetic nature, however, Joel could prove to be more than a means to heal the hurt from her past. In fact, he might just be the one man she’d always dreamed of. Then again, he could also be a conman. In the end, only she can decide what her limits are.
And what happens after that is anyone’s game.

Abby doesn’t gamble. But when her friend’s happiness is at stake, she risks her own body, betting on one crucial turn of the cards.
“And bring random women.”
“You’re fishing again.”
I wiggled my butt at him. “I’m not the pervy one into donkeys.”
He laughed. “I’m not into donkeys, you twit. I just love nature. You can lose yourself in the city, sometimes. I come out here to remind myself that Vegas is just an illusion. And you know exactly what I mean, you mischievous minx.”
I did. But it was fun to string him along for a bit. I walked a little way off, following some loose tumbleweed, imagining what it would be like to drift so randomly free. But then I looked back to see if Joel was watching me. He was just a foot or so away, and had that look, so I knew I was in for it.
“Take your dress off.”
“Here? Out in the open?”
“You know the rules, Abby. Do not question me when we play.”
“Yes, oh, masterful one.”
“You’ll be punished for that.”
I laughed, but played along. This time, my heart stopped more from the fear of being seen by others than from being naked in front of him. But I was growing used to obeying his commands. I removed my hat, pulled my dress over my head, and stood there, exposed to the elements and the burro. I prayed at least he’d avert his innocent eyes.
“And the rest. Take those off, too. You can put the hat back on. I don’t want you getting sunstroke.”
This time I took everything off quickly. The longer I dragged this out, the greater the chance of discovery.
“Now drop to your knees.”
What inspired you to write your first book?
Like most writers I know I don’t want to write books, I have to. The desire to put ink to parchment has been strong in me since I dunno, I realized that was something I could do. My favorite childhood memories were of the characters I read; they were as real to me as anyone I ever met.
As for my career, I came strong out of the gate but then puberty hit and my focus shifted so my young adult life was very unproductive in a literary sense. I read like a junkie but didn’t write. Then one day I thought just bloody-well-do-it and stop dreaming about it. So I did. And now I can’t seem to stop. I’m a writing addict. SOMEONE SAVE ME.

From the Author:
Born In London I am proud to say I now write for Blushing Books. I’ll pen whatever pops into my head, and lately that’s been erotica and fantasy. I like feisty chicks with a kick-ass attitude to life – the sex goes with the character – so like a snug pair of panties I write what suits them, and not necessarily what everyone’s expecting. All my characters are flawed, including my heroes, because I like them to learn something as they move through the story. If they’re on a journey; then so are you, the reader, and I think that’s more fun.
If you like what I do please share your experience with me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I welcome honest reviews (see above) on Amazon or anywhere else that posts them. I do read them, and it not only helps me understand if I’m doing my job for you, but it also highlights areas where I could improve. Like all my colleagues at Blushing I perpetually strive to be a better writer and your feedback helps, it really does.
Thank you, and Happy Reading!
