Book of the Day: What Happens in Vegas….


Also known as Vegas I. 🙂


Winning it big.

That’s the name of the game at Las Vegas’s Liege Hotel and Casino, where the hottest fantasies hinge on the roll of the dice and the tantalizing knowledge that anything could happen before sunrise.

Cocktail waitress Carinna wants a man to tie her up, not tie her down. Little does she know that her most willing partner yet has something else planned for this fiery Latina bombshell.

Dahlia is a burlesque dancer with a brain for business and a bod for sin. Her latest admirer may be a sweet talking Casanova, but despite what he thinks she’s not giving anything away for free.

Meanwhile Amy has the perfect plan to rob the Liege Casino blind…until the intimidating owner catches her red-handed. Now she knows she’s going to pay with both pleasure and pain.

Professional shill Cassidy is ready to experience a breathless rendezvous with her “friend with benefits.” But when he proposes five delicious nights of sexy blackjack, the stakes have never been so high.

  1. I am a historical junkie at heart so I guess that is my genre, but ever since I found paranormal, oh how I love them 🙂
    I guess i want more historical paranormals 😉

  2. I go thru phases, but for the most part I like contemporary romances, either romatic suspense, or erotic romance. I do sometimes like paranormals, but what I call paranormal lite (Lora Leigh’s breeds series), some shapeshifters, but not fantasy type.
    I will still ocassionally read a historical from one of my favorite authors, but rarely pick up one from an author I have never read before.
    Would love to read What Happens in Vegas, and Have the new Vegas book on my wish list 🙂

  3. To be honest, my moods vary… Some days I want spicy romances, others Historical, then others Paranormal… I am big on any genre as long as I get my romance! 😀

  4. I don’t really have a particular genre I like, I read them all, I suppose I tend more to the historical, then the paranormal. I really enjoy the books with shifters in them

  5. Read paranormals with lots of hot sauce. Do pick up contemporaries when following a favorite author. Used to read a lot of Regency but not so much anymore except Christmas themed.

  6. I’d have to say my favorite genres are historical and paranormal. These days there’s such a huge variety of paranormal stories….vampires, shape-shifters, fairies, deagons, science fiction, etc.
    And historical novels span a huge range of times and places and characters. I love it all!

    God Bless,
    Rhonda :confused:

  7. My favorite is historical, but I’ll cross over into other genre. It all depends on how I feel and if the book sounds good.

  8. My favorite is romantic suspense, followed by historical and paranormal. I do go through phases. Before my current obsession with romantic suspense, I was reading only paranormals.

  9. I recently started reading paranormal and love it. I also really enjoy contemporary romance. Thanks!

  10. I’m promiscuous. I read it all as long as it is well written. It just depends on my mood. I have everything from inspirational romance, to historical, to paranormal, to erotic on my shelves.

  11. I read all sub genres, but am partial to paranormal.

  12. I don’t have a favorite b/c they are all my favorites! I always have a mix of contemporary, paranormal, and historical books in my tbr pile. Wait, I do have a favorite, because if you add “erotic” before any of those sub-genres, I’ll want it more! So, erotic romance is my favorite. I also particularly love erotic westerns both contemporary and historical and erotic romances set in the late Victorian era.
    I definitely get on kicks where I only want to read a certain type of book. That’s how I found Nalini Singh and Lora Leigh a couple years ago, because after I read Fever by Christine Feehan, I wanted more books like that!

  13. I’d have to say that paranormal ones are my absolute favorites. Sure I go through phases (first, just vampires, then demons and werewolves…), but I’ve never fallen out of love with paranormal romance.

    I like deviation in times though. Sometimes modern tales are better than ancient ones, but I’d have to read a good few chapters before making a decision.

  14. My favorite genre is Paranormal with vampires being my favorite!

  15. I tend to last about a year in a subgenre before I move on to the next. I’m in the middle of a paranormal/urban fantasy phase right now. Before that, it was historicals. Of course, it is a big circle and I make it around to the beginning again and again! I also stray from my main focus for my favorite authors….

  16. My favorite is historical, but I also enjoy suspense, contemporary and paranormal. What I’m reading all depends on my mood that day.

  17. My favorite is paranormal romance, mystery/thriller and romantic suspense.

  18. I like contempury but it changes!


  19. My favorite is paranormal. Vampires, werewolves, fallen angels, and demons yumm yumm. I love them all!!

  20. I’m very much a phase reader. Mood, time of year, different times will have me glooming everything I can find in a certain subgenre. I noticed recently I’ve read very few historicals, where I used to read way more of them.
    But the top ones I reach for are shifters, romantic suspense, and smokin hot romances!!

  21. My current favorite sub-genre is paranormal. It does change, however. It has taken turns as contemporary, romantic suspense, and historical (with many sub-genres in historical). Yes, I definitely go through phases.

  22. Hello, I enjoy paranormal and romance. Like Twilight!

  23. paranormal romance!!! or vampire 🙂 thanks for the chance to win!

  24. I definitely go through phases. Right now I seem to be reading a lot of contemporaries.

    It also depends on what books are coming out. If a bunch of my favorite PNR authors have books out around the same time then I go on a PNR binge. 😀

  25. i go through phases of whatever mood i am in. sometimes i like comtemporary, sometimes paranormal, or regency/historical. most of the time i jump from one kind to the other, that way i don’t get too numbed out from one type of genre.

  26. My all time favorite is paranormal and Science Fiction and Fantasy. My preferences due shift with my moods. There are times when I really addicted to contemporary, historical romance and mystery thriller.

  27. I’m new to romance – I generally read Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Biographies. You can all thank Ann Aguirre for corrupting me. Her Sirantha Jax series hooked me, and Blue Diablo is turning me to the dark side 🙂

    I do go through phases – but it kind of depends on my moods (as well as the amount of time I have to read).

  28. My favorite Sub-genre to read is paranormal. I love vampires, shifters, witches and demons. I am on a Demon kick right now and I am reading anything with Demons I can get my hands on.

  29. I can’t really choose a preference. I like to mix them up as long as it is a good ‘n sexy relationship-centred story!

  30. I rotate between paranormals, historicals (regency), harlequin presents, and erotica. By rotate I mean one or two books, maybe a series, then switch. Sometimes I’m not really ready to switch genres but trick myself into doing so. I’ll either pick up an erotica that’s a polar opposite from what I just read (Always ready for erotica!) or I pick up a reread. I deliberatly switch because otherwise I start mixing up books in my head. I read about a book a day.
