All or Nothing

All or Nothing

Heeding Sinatra’s advice about making it in New York, Dana McGuire arrived in the Big Apple five years ago from Borden County as its reigning Miss Teen Dairy with dreams of being a star. However, in spite of encouragement from so many she never quite made it. Instead of moping about fantasies lost, Dana thinks of the survival of the fittest as she has become a personal fitness instructor with a revised dream of one day owning her own facility.

At the exclusive St. Martine Hotel, Dana meets her newest client Chase Culver. She is attracted him, but learned a hard lesson of never mixing work and pleasure. He wants her, but is reluctant to pursue her because he is an undercover investigator working to find out who is behind several thefts at the hotel and the evidence predominantly points at the woman he desires.

This is an engaging Manhatten romantic romp with a fine late twist adding spice to the repast. Dana is a strong protagonist who has moved past her disppaointment of not making in Manhatten as she does things her way. Fans will enjoy this fine under cover undercover romance.
