Surveillance, seduction, and extra-dirty politics.

Christian Chatsworth-Brandeis has a problem. A huge one. The US senator he works for has run away with his latest mistress on the eve of a make-or-break fund-raising event, and it’s up to him to cover his boss’s irresponsible tracks.

Stone Jackson, the senator’s new bodyguard, looks enough like the senator that, with some extensive grooming, he might pass for Senator Lacey. Christian and Stone hatch a plan to fool everyone by substituting Stone for the senator, but Miami madness and the incendiary heat between them are throwing obstacles in their way. It’s a race to find the senator and pull off the con of the century before the attraction between them spins completely out of control.


Ace in the Hole is the first book in the Wild Cards series by author Ava Drake. I loved this story, it is smart, funny, and really mind blowing chemistry between the characters.
Christian works for a US senator. He is a little up tight, a whole lot organized, and likes to be in control. I loved how he manages people to get them to do what he wants. He is very good at his job and is a good person too.
Stone is a bodyguard. He is rough around the edges but has a huge heart. What I loved is he lets Christian be in charge. He is man enough to let someone else take the reigns and not feel threatened by that.
These two together are pure heat. They have a chemistry that jumps off the pages, but they also work incredibly well as a team. I was cheering for them all the way. I love a story that is fast paced but full of love and romance, Ace in the Hole will be on my keeper shelf. I look forward to reading much more by Ave Drake in the future as well.
