She's a gamble he's willing to take.

When world-class poker player Patrick Tyler meets his match, Tahlia, in an underground game, he's immediately drawn to her swift talent and striking beauty. But it’s not long after their meeting that she mysteriously disappears. With nothing but a bloody crime scene as a clue to her whereabouts, she’s presumed dead.

Or so he thought...

A chance encounter changes everything.

Alone, afraid, and homeless, Tahlia needs Patrick now more than ever. Feeling compelled to help, he throws her a much-needed lifeline--a lady's choice card game. When Tahlia’s family finds out Patrick’s plans, they will stop at nothing to get their hands on her. Will Tahlia be able to protect him from her family or will this game of high stakes end in the most devastating loss?


About the Book

A 2018 Readers’ Favorite Book Award Finalist

There is a lot for the reader in this book — deft handling of plot, skillful character development, and intelligent world building. The characters are so genuinely flawed they are real to readers. For instance, Tahlia is a very beautiful and intelligent woman, but she has a difficult past and it is catching up with her pretty fast. This is the vulnerable side of her that makes her a compelling character. Patrick is well developed and readers will love to find out what becomes of his desperation from the moment he learns that Tahlia is gone.

The writing is focused and fluid and the scenes are well-crafted, infused with a lot of emotional energy to keep readers completely absorbed. The handling of conflict is also impeccable — it is developed at multiple levels and Tahlia is at the center of the drama. Lucy Leroux has a unique gift for storytelling, but what I found very interesting is the author’s ability to lead readers into the different seasons of the hearts of the characters. Trick’s Trap is a great read for fans of contemporary romance.”
