(From the publisher):
The Princess — New Orleans's most luxurious hotel. Sixty years ago, ownership of the hotel was lost to the powerful Jardine family in a wager that cost its matriarch her greatest love. Now, in a daring bid to keep the hotel, her legacy and her family together, she's made a new wager, betting everything on a granddaughter she's never met.
IT WAS A HIGH-STAKES GAME ...
After her mother's tragic death, Laura Harte learns her life has been a lie. All she has left are questions. Why did her mother hide the truth from her? Why had her powerful father denied her? The answers can only be found in New Orleans-—with a grandmother she never knew existed ... and a man she isn't sure she can trust.
Hotel magnate Josh Logan owns some of the world's finest hotels--but not the one he wants most: The Princess. He'll stop at nothing to reclaim his grandfather's legacy. Even if it means winning the heart of the young woman to whom The Princess rightfully belongs.
AND THERE COULD BE ONLY ONE WINNER ...
But as the secrets and sins of the past unravel, Laura and Josh find themselves in a dangerous game where no risk is too great and falling in love is not an option.
