Roxanne 'Roxie' Sanchez was determined to get back the fifty thousand dollars her adoptive parents lost. The person responsible is the Las Vegas casino owner who duped them.
Roxie, a ward of the state before she was old enough to have family memories, survived by her wits as a con artist; she now has a respectable career. But, it is time to revive her dormant skills to avenge her parents. She enters the Desert Rose Casino and sashays up to the blackjack table with plans to walk away with the money they lost.
Sexy, ruthless, Ike Bancroft, head of security for the casino watches as the owner of a hot pair of legs strolls into the casino and proceeds to cheat the night away. When he confronts Roxie she admits how she is cheating, and bolts from the casino without the money. The owner, who is Ike's godfather, is livid that Ike let her get away; they had her red-handed. Under the guise of satisfying his godfather's ire, at least that's what he tells himself, Ike goes after Roxie. The truth is Roxie has Mr. level-headed Ike running hot and cold and he needs to satisfy his curiosity. But, will her accusations on his godfather get in his way? Either way, Ike knows he's in trouble.
FEVER by Elaine Overton takes readers on a sensuous romp through one of the hottest casinos in Las Vegas. She gives us some shady characters; a trusting godson, a ruthless owner and several unscrupulous casino employees. The surprises, double-crosses and heated nights are invigorating, and the suspense is enough to have readers wondering who the good guys really are. Kudos to Ms. Overton for an exciting adventure and a candid reminder that 'what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas'.
