Playing for Keeps

Series: Hope Valley #10
Release Date: March 29, 2021

When it came to the men in her life, Charlotte Belmont was cursed. She’d known losers, cheaters, abusers, and criminals, so it went without saying, she stopped trusting her judgment a long time ago. Then Dalton came into her life; a good, dependable man who made her heart race and her body hot. When she felt herself falling for him, she did the only thing she could think to protect them both . . . she ran like hell.

Dalton Prescott was a protector by nature, so when the woman he’d been tasked to keep safe was almost killed on his watch, he carried that guilt like a weight on his shoulders. What made matters worse was that before everything went south, Dalton had started to care for Charlotte in a way that had nothing to do with his job.

She’s determined to ignore their attraction and keep him at a distance, but he’s playing for keeps and has no intention of losing. However, when ghosts from the past start popping up, bringing with them a whole new threat, Dalton may be the only man who can keep her safe this time.


A small town romance between an alpha hero with a strong heroine makes Playing for Keeps an absolute must read! I love a story of self-discovery, of learning to let go and allow yourself to become vulnerable, and Jessica Prince nailed it with the latest installment of Hope Valley! – A.L. Jackson, NYT & USA Today bestselling author

I love me some Jessica Prince. Her books are like coming home and this series is a top favorite and reread of mine. Hope Valley and its residents have become family to me and watching them each fall one by one has been everything in the very best ways and has given the very best moments. – Renee Entress’s Blog
