The Ace of Hearts

Original title: L’as de coeur


Book 1: The Ace of Hearts (September 2021)

Hotter romances, grittier plotlines, great characters, revenge, lies, and secrets – this book has it all.

Levi has a natural-born talent for poker and he has dedicated his life to stripping the world’s casinos of their money. Between him and the World Poker Tournament, there is only one remaining obstacle: Tito Ferragni, his nemesis.

In order to win, Levi turns to Rose, a walking lie detector in need of money. She will become Levi’s secret weapon: in a world in which nothing is what it seems, the last word will be hers.

Book 2: The Ace of Spades (September 2022)

For those who couldn’t get enough of Daisy and Thomas in The Ace of Hearts, get ready to see their relationship go to a whole other level in The Ace of Spades. A spin-off of The Ace of Hearts and yet an independent novel.

Thomas Kalberg had always rebuffed the advances of Daisy Coleman, the famous child-star who also happened to be his best friend’s sister. But here he is back after four years of absence, and everything has changed. By becoming her bodyguard, Thomas’ only goal is to protect her at all costs. The hardest thing is to keep his distance… because Daisy has become a woman, and she intends to prove it to him.
