The Valentine Wager by Nan Reinhardt
A Lange Brothers Romance (Book 1)
Tule Publishing Inc (Feb 1, 2022)
Contemporary Romance/Holiday Romance-Valentine/Small Town Romance
He’s a notorious flirt, so she lays down a challenge she’s sure she’ll win.
When playboy police lieutenant Ryker Lange stops Kitt Boynton for driving on the wrong side of the road, his attraction to the feisty Irish lass is immediate. Yet, despite the sizzling chemistry between them, Kitt quickly turns him down.
Kitt has moved to River’s Edge for a fresh start and is ready to focus on her new marketing job at her cousins’ winery. She’s done with players, and vows she won’t let the local sexy cop distract her, but Kitt, a flirt herself, is definitely tempted. To keep her sanity as she prepares for several Valentine-themed winery events, she and Ryker make a bet: for the next three weeks, neither of them can flirt with the other.
The game starts out lighthearted, but when the town takes sides, Ryker and Kitt must choose between winning a wager or finding lasting love.
“You’re the one”
I really enjoyed this story. There is definite chemistry, but a wager is at stake. I thought Ryker attempting to treat Kitt as one of the guys was super fun. Kitt is determined to stay away from romance but can’t help but be won over by Ryker. I enjoyed all the characters and am looking forward to more books in the series featuring Ryker’s brothers.
