The Lady Plays Her Ace is a fantastic historical romance by Wendy Vella. Ms. Vella has once again impressed me with her storytelling abilities. She has provided readers with a well-written book and furnished it with outstanding characters. Oliver fought for his fortune, with his fists and his brains. Althea is a Lady and Oliver has decided she's not for him. Their story is loaded with drama, humor, action, sexy bits and suspense. I loved this story from the first page till the last and can't wait to read my next book by Wendy Vella. The Lady Plays Her Ace is book 4 of The Langley Sisters Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
