LUCK OF THE DRAW
by Julie Lence
A passionate romance with an exciting plot... Anita Hartsell, Romance Reader At Heart
Royce Weston knows firsthand women are exceptional liars... especially the one who has wormed her way into his family's good graces by claiming amnesia. Since Paige didn't heed his advice at the poker tables, he reasons a bit of 'friendly' persuasion is needed to send her packing. But when she matches him trick for trick and has his ranch hands jumping to please her, Royce realizes she is no simpering miss. Sassy and daring; if only she'd give him a reason to trust her...
Paige Morgan knows Royce despises her. But on his family's ranch, populated entirely by men, he seems to be the only one who knows about her past... a past she can't remember. Until he tells her what he knows, she isn't going anywhere. And if along the way she manages to tame this rough and tough cowboy, so much the better. Any girl will tell you it's not how you play your cards. It's the Luck of the Draw that counts.
About the AuthorJulie's western romances bring to life the code of ethics cowboys lived by and the dangers outlaws defied living by their guns. Often outspoken and temperamental, with their own sense of humor, Julie's heroes share a common trait―the willingness to surrender his heart to the right woman and earn her love for eternity.

As usual, Ms. Lence doesn't disappoint. Her stories always have the cowboys and how they lived, either on or outside the law or both. They lived by their guns. Without them they couldn't survive.
Royce doesn't want a woman around. He doesn't want any women around him. He has no use for women. He has had problems in the past with women and he has no attraction to them at all. Royce wins a poker game and the winnings was Paige. She has a spark for Royce but her father is on him way to get her. So, Royce high tails it. When Royce sees her next, she doesn't know him. She has amnesia. What happened to her? Who will win who over? After the first few pages you become totally involved with these characters and you can't put the book down. The author gives detailed characters that fit well with each other. It takes a while to get to know Paige and Royce but it's well worth the time. Royce has a lot of things in his past that are haunting him. He's a tough cowboy but I believe deep underneath, he's a gentle and caring guy. There are times that humor is put in the book so you get to smile and laugh sometimes. That's a bit of a change from some westerns I've read. Nice for a change. Now there is a lot of problems in the characters lives. A father that killed his son, is mean to his daughter. There's a lot of anger in some of the characters, but that makes them real. These characters lived in times that were hard and tough, so you can see where they would get angry just like we do today. Paige and Royce finally admit to the attraction between them. Their romance goes slowly and that lets you take it all in. So if you like westerns with tough cowboys and fillies that are a little sassy, then grab a copy of this book and follow the world of the Weston family. You won't be sorry.
