Contemporary Romantic Suspense
When West Virginia wild-child Glory Allen gets caught in the middle of a kidnapping attempt, she has to decide if rescuing the sexy Luke Tanner is worth risking her life. Especially after the high and mighty casino magnate just accused her of cheating in his casino.

Her decision to help, causes Luke to step into her hometown to develop a community that doesn’t need improvement—a community Glory’s gambling earnings were meant to save—and Glory can’t help but question her judgment, because the chemistry between them is about to explode, and it has nothing to do with the Vegas thugs hot on their trail.

Now Glory is stuck helping Luke figure out who set him up and what to do about their own burning attraction…before Glory’s hometown, and her life, are lost for good.

Top Five Las Vegas!

Howdy people! If you’ve been following along, you know I’ve been doing a crazy tour for my new book Leaving Las Vegas. It’s a road trip novel, and I’ve been visiting the places where all the important events in my book occurred.

The underground poker game. The kidnappings. The car chases. The shout-outs.

The wild monkey love.

What started out as a few low key events has turned into a wild and crazy ride as my characters decided to tag along.

Today we’re going to do something a little different. Today is a Q&A. I know I left that question around here somewhere…

What are Your Top Five Things to Do in Las Vegas

Interesting question. I’ve only ever been to Las Vegas once. On a roadtrip. Someone got married. It was a thing. Don’t ask. So, counting down, if I were to go to Las Vegas again then my top five things to do would be…

5. Visit that fountain with all the lights and the shiny things that’s in like EVERY movie ever made. Seriously, if it’s good enough for George Clooney then it’s good enough for me. Of course, I’m into all sorts of water sports. Watching the jets wouldn’t be enough. I’d want to wade in the darn thing.

4. Check into a schmancy hotel—the schmanciest I could find—take a nice long bath in a hot tub and stretch out on a king sized bed with a mattress that I can’t afford.

3. Visit the Las Vegas Sign Museum. It was profiled on the CBS news not too long ago. It’s outdoors and has all the crazy signs that helped make Las Vegas great. Neon. Flashing bulbs. The whole thing. It was even in an episode of CSI once. How cool is that?

2. Visit every other museum in Las Vegas. Seriously. It’s a big city and a lot of the casinos have invested in activities for people who come along with gamblers. I want to check out the Monets and the Manets as well as the money.


1.NOT GET MARRIED! I know, you think it’s going to be romantic. It’s not. Take my advice. Get married in a church, in a village green, in a backyard somewhere! Take a priest up a mountain. Get married like my cousin, under a mountain! Just don’t do it in Las Vegas.

Seriously. You’ll thank me.

Purchase Leaving Las Vegas 

Aleah Barley is an author of funny (she hopes) contemporary romances. After recently moving to Detroit, she discovered that the rumors are true: it is a post-apocalyptic wasteland full of abandoned buildings, zombies, and hipster coffee shops that don’t open before nine in the morning. It’s also a great place to live.



She spends her days working hard to make the world a better place and her nights writing about kick-ass women who live life to the fullest and the men who love them.

She’ll do anything for a box of chocolates. Or ice cream. Seriously. Try her.

Good luck!

  1. I've been to Las Vegas a couple of times, but have never visit The Las Vegas Sign Museum, didn't even know it existed. Thanks for the tip.

    1. I have to look it up myself, I read that you should visit it at night, its much better.

  2. I spent nearly 15 years making the pilgrimage to Lost Wages to attend various photo and computer conventions. I loved getting in my rental car and just checking out the city.. NOT THE STRIP. I found a great shooting range where I could rent a gun for an hour and practice. I found a nice mall where I could get some new clothes for the convention. It's a great city.

    I also enjoyed playing black jack at the then $2 dollar tables.

    1. Sounds like a good alternative to all those tourist traps on the strip. Thanks for the tip!

  3. I have been to Vegas many times and still love the lights and action. I did get married out there and Elvis walked me down the aisle. Where else could you possible have that happen? lol There are many other things to do than gamble. Some great site seeing places are the Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon and Valley of Fire. Try to visit as early as possible to get the great light for your photographs. Of course, I have to play a little poker and......Thanks for the giveaway and the great post.

    1. Congratulations! I guess your marriage is living proof that getting married in Vegas isn't so bad.

  4. Great post and the book sounds really good. Great giveaway!

  5. Thanks for the review. Adding to my TBR.

  8. I want to read this book!!!! :D

  9. I love romantic suspense and I like the top five things..I definitely want to see the lights :) Since I am already married, it might be cool to renew our vowels.

  10. I'm a sucker for Las Vegas stories especially since I know I'm never going to have a crazy Vegas story of my own. Plus the only time I've even been near Vegas is the Reno airport when I was like 8. I remember it had slot machines and we weren't allowed to play. Lol.
