Award-winning author Nicolette Pierce joins us in this episode of CrimeFiction.FM to discuss her Nadia Wolf romantic suspense series, which begins with THE BIG BLIND.
I began reading this series during a three-week podcasting break when I had the opportunity to catch up on some of my “non-show” reading. I’d downloaded THE BIG BLIND for free sometime last year and spotted it while going through the unread books on my Kindle, I thought I’d read the first few chapters to see if I was interested. Well, that was the start of a very enjoyable binge reading week where I read all four books in the Nadia Wolf series.

Nadia Wolf had one wish, and it wasn’t for the latest designer purse, fashion-forward clothing, or even a handsome man to marry . . . although, that would be acceptable too. Her wish was to win the World Poker Tournament and collect the one million dollar prize, beating the arrogant men who made her professional poker career a daily challenge.
The odds were stacked against her when sexy poker celebrity Caleb Usher sat down at her table. As they pin their battles against each other, a steamy side wager drew them both in and gave them an even greater reason to fight for the championship. It only took one hand to make tournament history and leave them both hot under the collar. But before they could settle their spicy wager, the million dollar prize disappeared in front of an audience. Not one witness could explain what happened or where the money disappeared.
Greyson Miller CEO of the Lost City Casino had a mystery to solve. Not only did a thief steal the million dollars from under his watchful eyes, but a secret swelled so large it threatened the very core of the casino. In a twist of fate, Nadia teams up with Greyson in an attempt to find the missing prize and to solve the perilous mystery that plagued the Lost City Casino. With Greyson’s overwhelming allure, Nadia has to keep both her head in the game and her hands to herself.
Will she be able to unravel the mystery and find the lost prize money while keeping both Greyson and Caleb at bay? Can she fend off her fanatical self-appointed poker manager Frankie Garza before he flushes her career down the toilet in offbeat attempts to make her famous? With Caleb, Greyson, and Frankie all claiming a stake, Nadia’s career, her life, and her heart will never be the same.
Begin the adventure today.
