Poker player and professional smartass Randy Jansen believes in fate but doesn't let it rule his life. Whether he’s at the table or between the sheets, Randy always knows the odds, and he only plays the games he can win—until he meets Ethan Ellison. Ethan came to Las Vegas with a broken heart and shattered spirit, and when he sits down at the roulette table with his last five dollars, he means this to be one of his last acts on earth. But Randy ropes him into first one bet, and then another, and then another.... Pretty soon they’re playing poker on the Strip and having the time of their lives—and all this even before Randy gets Ethan into his bed.
But before Ethan can plot out a new course for his life, they’re drafted into the schemes of Randy’s former lover, a tricky gangster who needs a fall guy. To survive, Ethan will have to stop waiting on fate and start making his own luck, and Randy will have to face the demons of his past and accept that to win this round, he’s going to have to put up a big ante. It isn’t money going into the pot this time, either: it’s his heart, and Ethan’s too—because for better or for worse, the game of love has a double blind.
Dear Author, Best of 2010
Double Blind is a very well written book and one that ultimately I really enjoyed reading. The plot is intriguing and exciting, it’s fast paced and has many different subplots that all worked well within the main storyline. The characters are well developed and three dimensional and the relationships explored throughout, whether Randy and Ethan’s, Mitch and Sam’s or the one they all shared together, really drew me in and kept my attention throughout the book. This can be read as a stand alone book but will be better appreciated if read after Special Delivery, I highly recommend Double Blind and look forward to reading more stories by Heidi Cullinan.

If readers want a book to sink their teeth into that has emotional truth, lots of angst, and stunning character construction and development, this is where to go. (Joan/Sarah F at Dear Author)
