Synopses & Reviews
Minerva Dobbs knows all about risk management, which is why its such a shock when David, her extremely logical choice for a boyfriend, dumps her three weeks before her perfect sisters wedding: David was not supposed to be a wild card. So when Min overhears David make a bet with his old nemesis—the gorgeous and successful Calvin Morrisey—that Cal cant get Min into bed in a month, she decides that fate has just handed her a stacked deck: she can make Cal sweat his sex appeal and get a date to the wedding, if she plays along and doesnt fold. What follows is a novel of destiny, chaos theory, Krispy Kreme donuts, the spirit of Elvis, Chicken Marsala, and a gamble for the highest stake of all: true love. Bet Me is the winner of a 2005 RITA Award.
