The Man with the Money - Lynn Raye Harris

Winner: Hey, y'all! I totally got sidetracked with trip recovery and revisions to my latest book (which went in today, yay!) and forgot to pick a winner! Hope you will forgive me. The Random Number Generator has chosen Desere! Yay, Desere, you finally did it! The RNG loved you today!

I love this trailer! It's so moody and sexy and I think Harlequin did a fabulous job with it. I'm thrilled to be a part of the series! The fifth book in the series, The Man with the Money, is in stores now! This book is about Jack Wolfe, the hot loner who gets his thrills from high-stakes games, whether it's cards or the financial markets. Jack has cut himself off from his family for the most part -- and he's definitely not ready to forgive his eldest brother, Jacob, who returns in the first book, A Night of Scandal, that kicks the whole series off.

Cara Taylor is a heroine I could relate to. She's not wealthy like Jack, and she works hard for everything she has. She's also from New Orleans, which holds a special place in my heart as I have family who live there. I've visited the city several times, and I've always loved the distinctly European vibe.

But, as cool as I think New Orleans is, Cara wants to escape her hometown. She's always wanted to see the big wide world, so when she ends up dealing cards in a casino on the French Riviera, life should be perfect. Of course it isn't--and then she meets Jack.

Oh, she doesn't think life is perfect then either. But she will, just as soon as she realizes how utterly addictive a man like Jack can be.

I hope you enjoy reading about Jack and Cara! For a red-hot excerpt, click here. RT Book Reviews magazine gave this story 4 Stars and said it has, "intense emotional turmoil, a tortured hero and toe-curling intimate encounters." Rawr!

Jack…Red-Hot. Renegade. Restless.

Notorious gambler Jack no longer gets a buzz from the risks he takes at the card table. In fact it bores him. Until one night he wins more than he ever bargained for…

His prize is stunning Cara Taylor – she might be down on her luck but she certainly doesn’t need rescuing by a card-shark like Jack! Now she’s stuck with him she doesn’t know whether to love him or loathe him.

For a chance to win a signed copy, tell me where you'd choose to visit if you could go anyplace you wanted. (I may have trouble commenting today, as I'm on vacation and might not have internet access. But leave me comments anyway, and I'll catch up when I get home!)

Hi Lynn, i'm really liking the Wolfe series. In NZ the covers are of the other type. We also get them a bit later than when they're released overseas.

I would love to visit Spain. I learnt the language many years ago by correspondence BUT it was the best! Each morning on TV an episode would play and then you would answer the chapter. It was kind of like correspondence. If you google it the series is called Destino's. It was a brilliant way to learn :)

Then life happened and now Miss 12 and Miss 9 are learning it... must be in the blood. I love the sound of the culture, the people, the atmosphere, SIESTA'S ha.

I'd love to visit the gorgeous Greek island where Mama Mia was filmed. The church on the hillside was beautiful!

I'd also check out a couple of the other islands Santorini an Mykonos.. I'd sample authentic gyros, spanokopia and baklava! Yummy!

Hey, where did my post go??

Ok I'll try again. You're book sounds great! I would like to go to Florence, don't know if it's anything like I imagine but the colors and buildings etc appeal to me.

This series sounds very interesting. I loved the trailer.

I'd like to go to New Zealand. I also want to go to Edinburgh.

Lynn, late in the '90s, I won a sweepstakes and the prize was a
trip to Venice, Italy. It was a
marvelous trip and I definitely
left a bit of my heart there.
Would that we could go back to
Venice, there were still areas
that we didn't get to enjoy!

There's so many places I'd love to travel - Greece, Scotland, China, Australia, New Zealand... reading these books is like arm-chair travelling.

Places to go don't call out to me; people do. I like to visit friends and family. Should we go somewhere with those people, then fine. If we stay in, then fine too. I prefer staying active, though, so we often hike, geocache, etc., and these things can be done almost anywhere in the world.

Hey, y'all! Thanks so much for commenting while I was away! I'm just getting back from a trip to Rome and London, and feeling very jet-lagged, ha. I loved reading about all the places you want to go! Very cool. :)

I'll choose a winner soon, once I've awakened a bit more. ;)

Thanks so much for all your comments!
