Product Description

Two brothers, two wives and two pregnancies. Christmas Eve in 1947 is an exciting time at the New Orleans mansion of the McSwain family as two babies are expected to join the family in the near future.

The men plan a surprise for their loves. Papa Noel arrives to take them on a romantic carriage ride around the Garden District and the French Quarter. When one of the women goes into labor on the excursion, the race is on to save both the mother and the child.


She stopped mid-sentence as a pair of horses sporting reindeer antlers pulling a sleigh on wheels with Papa Noel at the reins came into view.

The conveyance turned up the drive and came across the lawn. The horses stopped right in front of the porch. Papa Noel sketched a salute. "I heard there were some very good girls who live here who wanted a ride with old Papa." Eden clapped her hands and smiled at the old man. "Yes. I think that would be delightful."

Dirk put his arm around her and led her to the sleigh. He assisted her aboard and pulled a couple of the fur throws over her. He turned to Zoe. "Come on and I'll help you up."

Bo followed behind his wife and when both ladies were settled in, the men sat beside them, each couple facing the other.

Papa Noel turned around from his seat. "You all ready to go?"

"Where are we going?" Zoe said.

"Around." Papa Noel responded and clicked his tongue at the horses. "Let's go, Blitzen and Comet."

"How did you decide which reindeer to bring this evening?" Dirk asked over his shoulder.

"The others are over at Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop drinking absinthe. Bunch of sots."

They all laughed at the thought of the reindeer hanging out in the oldest bar in America.

  1. Not at all what I expected. =D 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th May 2013

    When I saw the name of this book, the words "Gambler's Inheritance" made me imagine men smoking cigars, playing poker, and drinking whiskey. Maybe one of them cheated and was shot... Boy was I wrong! It's sexy, cute, and romantic. I even had a laugh out loud moment when Bo punches his brother to make him shut up.

    If I had any complaints, it would be that some things in the end of the book seemed a bit too easy. On the other hand, I probably wouldn't want to know any more gruesome details anyway. Curious yet? Well, read it! It's free!
