‘DOUBLE OR NOTHING’ by MEG MIMS

So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story, just click on the book image, or to read more about both book and author go here.

If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.

Surprised yet ecstatic about our announcement to marry, Charles and Kate offered to help in any way. Etta was wary of Ace, however, given what my uncle had claimed. He won her over within the hour with jokes and stories. Charles agreed with my plan.

He and Charles left the house and headed toward a horse hobbled in a grassy field further west. I hadn’t noticed the chestnut gelding before. Kate shooed me from the window.

As this was an author invitation to read and review, a complimentary Kindle download of ‘ Double Or Nothing’, was gifted to me, by its author Meg Mims.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog articles I may post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

    • Hi Naida,

      Ace Diamond is a little rough around the edges and does come with something of a reputation, although this has been grossly over exaggerated by Lily’s uncle. This is solely for his own ends however, as he has other plans for his niece, which certainly don’t include Ace!

      This is only the second ever ‘western romance’ I have read, the first one being ‘Double Crossing’, the prequel to ‘Double Or Nothing’. Whilst not a genre that I could read on too regular a basis, I am enjoying this particular saga, although both books can be equally well read as stand alone stories.

      Thanks for stopping by and have a good week.

  • Hmm, despite my liking the thought of being won over within the hour by jokes and stories I’m not sure this appeals to me. Still, only a small snippet the synopsis may reveal more.

    • Hi Tracy,

      Ace definitely knows when to use his natural charm to his advantage, however there is plenty more intrigue and mystery to come before this one is over, in fact the action has been pretty much non stop so far!

      Thanks for the visit and for taking the time to comment, I appreciate it.

  • I’m actually between books (catching up on a couple of magazines), but couldn’t resist joining in using the book I just finished!

    “A core of invulnerable security was forming in him, for Octavian knew perfectly well what Caesar’s star really meant. It was a message to him from Caesar that his destiny was to rule the world.”
    ~ page 568 of The October Horse by Colleen McCullough (Masters of Rome, book 6)

    • Hi Kelly,

      I’m not sure that ‘The Masters Of Rome’ series is something I would enjoy, but that is basically because it outside of my usual reading genres, so I really need to try at least the first book, before I pass comment, as there seems to be some quite powerful and descriptive dialogue here.

      Like most people, I have read Colleen’s book ‘The Thorn Birds’ and thoroughly enjoyed it and ‘The Ladies Of Missalonghi’ has been on my TBR list forever.

      I have never read or bought mainstream magazines, although I am reliably informed by others that some of them are an excellent short story source. I am not much of a one for reading celebrity gossip either and page after page of pictures just doesn’t interest me at all ….. Give me a good book any day!

      Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your week.

    • Hi Sandra,

      Western romances are not books which I could read on a regular basis, however I am finding this authors style of writing very easy to get along with, together with a strong storyline and some very believable characters reflecting the period in which the story is set. Ace certainly knows how and when to switch on the charm that’s for sure and what he may lack in formal education, he certainly more than makes up for in wit and cunning.

      Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate your time and comments.

  • I hope to start the Scarlet Pimpernel soon, which looks exciting (but no teasers from it yet…)

    And, as always, I’ve been reading short stories 🙂 Recently, a couple of good ones by John Cheever, who liked writing about upper middle class communities outside of NYC where people live fragile empty lives amidst their wealth.

    • Hi Hila,

      I have never read ‘The Scarlet Pimpernel’, although I have seen plenty of television adaptations and various versions of the film. You should manage to get some great exciting teaser lines from this one!

      John Cheever isn’t an author whose name I am familiar with, however I have recently discovered the delights of short story reading (a genre I have always consciously avoided in the past), so I shall add his name to my TBR list for the future, thanks for the recommendation.

      Great to hear from you, as always and have a good weekend.
