This is the first book in the "Gambler's Series". I just love Lisa Kleypas and her books. This is a new cover on an older book that is being reintroduced to us. I missed this book the first time around and was so glad that I got the chance to read it this time. Lisa Kleypas books are standalone but for me I love catching up with the other characters and seeing which ones she is bringing out for the next great read. I just wanted to mention that just so you would know it is not a big deal if you are jumping around the series or this authors books.
