    1. Bree Dalton (who's 28) and her younger sister Josie are living in Honolulu, Hawaii where they have been working at a hotel/resort for the past couple of months. One night, a worried and distraught Josie wakes Bree up and tells her that she lost a lot of money in a poker game she was persuaded to play with a group of men and she now owes a hundred thousand dollars. Bree is obviously upset but knows what she must do---go play poker with these men and win!Bree is very good at poker. She and her lat [...]


    2. I love the fantasy idea of the heroine being won in a bet, sold, etc. Guess it's kind of a kink of mine. Totally loved that this hero was so desperate to make her happy, yet going about it so wrong by throwing money at her.This is very tropey: Hero wants revenge until he realizes h was innocent because 'oops she's a virgin', hero controls heroine's life by manipulating her with her love for a family member, hero is broken and thinks he can't love/doesn't deserve it, but desperately needs the her [...]


    3. This is a story that brings the drama, but most of it was sordid and there is something hollow underneath it all and left me feeling more depressed than uplifted at their HEA. The heroine staked herself in a poker game to extract her sister from a 100,000 dollar debt. She won that, but then she pushed her luck and played her final card against the hero to finally emerge from her Breaking Bad-type father’s debts. That she still had her v-card at 28 as her final, final card is what springs her f [...]


    4. Apparently I was getting ready to read the 2nd one firsty 2.99 on Kindle so I guess I'll get it so I can read in orderAfter Reading:Enjoyed the book although, I guess the HP books aren't what I am into reading as much these days. It's been over a week since I finished this and my new Outlander obsession has wiped much from my mind about this book. LOL I did like it, as I enjoy all of Jennie Lucas's books.


    5. I am so in love with this book! The intense drama and tension between Bree and Vladimir radiates off the page. Their mutual attraction and lust was sizzling and electrifying. Their love affair was so heated and intense I was literally on the edge of my seat. Great love story, steamy lovemaking and the characters were well developed. Not to mention that the more you learn about Vladimir the more empathy you have for him, can understand more of his need for control and how his ruthless character d [...]


    6. A bit too sordid for my tastes, but I could get over that if there was a bit more depth to the whole thing. (I know it's an HP. How can I expect much depth.) I struggle with JL's work because tells me they love each other, but she doesn't show me. Also, the whole "v-card" bugs me. Now she's telling the truth?Not my cuppa.

    8. Since the hero in this book, Vladimir shows up as a peripheral character in the last Jennie Lucas book I read, A Night of Living Dangerously, I decided to reach for this one. It also happens that the hero is Russian (and I swoon over Russian heroes). Talking about drama, wow!Man, this book was sizzling. The whole scenario and the dialogue and action was crazy. I couldn't believe the bet that Bree makes. I completely understand why. I loved that she isn't the typical, sweet, butter wouldn't melt [...]


    9. Emotionally, I liked this book and it would have earned 4 stars except for a couple of inaccuracies.First the heroine is presented as being almost a poker savant. While poker is actually an easy game to learn, it's a hard game to master. Anyone who really knows the game will tell you that it doesn't matter if you're a championship player up against a bunch of rubes; the best player can lose any given hand. What makes them winners is that they will win over the course of the night. To walk in and [...]



    10. I have not been much into reading lately as nothing seems to hold my attention for very long. I have started several books only to leave them midway. But along comes this book which by no means the best I have ever read however it grabbed my attention from the very start. Hero Vladimir Xendzov wins the Heroine Bree Dalton in a card game. Bree had joined the card game inorder to win back money that her sister had lost. I really admired her courage when Bree is playing the game. The rest of the st [...]


    11. 4.5 starsThe first installment of the Princes Duet is an intense read with a fast paced plot with unexpected twists, an alpha H, a strong h, a love affair that went sour ten years ago, a fateful game of cards and brothers' feud. Jennie Lucas doesn't shy away from having flawed characters. Bree is an ex con artist who turned her back on her old life and tried to make a better life for her and her baby sister, Josie. Vladimir is a ruthless and cold hero - even with his younger brother Kasimir - bu [...]



    12. My first book for 2015 and I made the right choice. Hah! JL doesn't really disappoints.Vladimir is a ruthless businessman and so was he with Bree. He bought her and bed her. Yet, you'd see how he would turned marshmallow to her! He would do something bad to anyone who'd hurt her. Even its just a prick of a needle! Love that scene on that dress shop though. And please include the scene about the wearing the fur coat. It would be the same for me because I really love dogs!But what I love about thi [...]


    13. Great book. Wonderful Hero and heroine in Vladimir and Breanna. Good ending and look forward to reading the next book about Vladimir's brother Kasimir and Breanna's sister Josie !



    14. Review:I knew I’d like this book if not for anything else then for the fact that the heroine wasn’t so straight laced and had led a life or “crime” by being a con artist, a successful one at that. This part of her past is also what comes to bite her at the butt when faced with her former lover, but it’s also the saving grace that helps her to sort out the mess her sister created. Well, in the end, her efforts go to waste because she falls into the clutches of someone she wants (read: d [...]


    15. Reformed confidence artist, Breanna “Bree” Dalton, is on a mission to protect her younger sister, Josie. She had no idea that when she ventured to that table she would be faced with her past�a past that destroyed her life at the time. Bree had never truly gotten over that night with Vladimir, but she persevered trying to be better than she once was. Russian Prince Vladimir Xendzov, did not come out of their past relationship unscathed. He has changed since Bree’s last encounter with him, [...]


    16. This book started out with so much promise. Two people who haven't seen each other for a decade, who left on bad terms, are thrown back together in a high-stakes poker game in which the man - a Russian millionaire - wins (yes, wins!) the woman who broke his heart. It's the medieval ages brought into the 21st century, but because it's a romance, you know he isn't actually a bad guy, and you know the girl can take whatever she's given, because she's a kick-ass heroine who turns to poker to solve h [...]


    17. This book tell the story of Breena, an ex-con artist, met again with the man she once loved before; Russian Prince Vladimir Xendzov, at the gambling table where she have make a deal to either win the money that is on the table which will save her sister or to be a pleasure slave. As expected in a romance story, she lost her bet and thus, have to make do her promise and to be a slave at Vlad’s pleasure. But, no matter how much Vlad punished her in giving her difficult household task to do, she [...]


    18. Very unique premise that made the story different and interesting. Loved how Vladimir let her win the one hand of poker to save her sister, and even helped her in doing so, winning her sister's debt.I liked that Bree was protective of her sister, which was how she got in this mess with Vladimir in the first place, but I almost felt like she was too protective of her, acting like a mother that Josie had never known like it was Bree's job to be that for her when she needed not to be. But I underst [...]


    19. Initial impression:March 28thVery readable. Just flipped through half of it in one sitting. A refreshing start which turned into an over used trope halfway through the book. It's an interesting read if you can get over the rather medieval premise.*spoiler alert*please don't read any further if you haven't read the book. I wished he'd just won her in the first game( if he had to). Playing the second was meant to redeem him but it took the fun out of the whole set up. Plus she does come across eve [...]


    20. I Loved this book! The emotions were so intense. Vladimir, and Bree were pretty much in love 10 year ago. Something BIG happened, and the two went seperate ways. Fast forward 10 years, and Vladimir just happens to sit at the same poker table that Bree is begging to play in. She is desperate to save her little sister. She would do anything for her sister, even sale her freedom. She had nothing to bet, but herself. Sample from the book - "If my card is higher, you'll belong to me, obeying my every [...]


    21. Reviewed at HarlequinJunkie This book has everything that a Harlequin Presents reader wants: an alpha male, a heroine capable of standing up to him, exotic locales and, of course, plenty of heat! If you enjoy those element, you'll like this tale.In Jennie Lucas' Dealing Her Final Card, a desperate Bree Daulton seeks to make good on her younger sister Josie's gambling debt. Haunted by their father's con-man past, a string of debts, and threats from years ago, Bree reencounters the savagely handso [...]


    22. This is the first time I read Jennie Lucas's book and all I can say is I love her book! Especially this book. I Love the plot and also the plot twist. I'm satisfied with the conflict also the love between Vlad & Bree. Their characterization especially Vlad. From very sweet from their past to ruthless prince/businessman. I love the development of the story until to the end.I can't wait to read Kasmir's story.5 out of 5 stars.


    23. When Jennie Lucas is at the top of her game, her stories are on fire! this one is no exception.Loved it! Bree and Vladimir were interesting and multi-faceted, whuch made their story vibrant and not too angsty, as opposed to angsty but foolish. And talk about ending with a bang! you can be rest assured I'll be looking out for Kasimir's story next month!


    24. This novel was amazing.The hero was Russian, yum, yum.In the beginning he really was getting on my nerves, but in the second half, it was like he went through a major transformation, from cruel and ruthless to super, super nice.I really, really enjoyed it.


    25. Jennie Lucas delivers another winner! Now I just have to hunt for the next book which will features Kasimir and Josie.



    26. Couldn't finish this book fast enough. Lucas wrote an amazing book, including Russian's was the icing on the cake. Can't get enough of them.
