The cards are dealt. Now let the game of passion begin… Architect Hunter Russell's grandmother just won a Reno casino in a high-stakes poker game! And she wants Hunter to help renovate it. It's a crazy idea, and he is just about to tell her so–until he meets the stunning young woman who is his grandmother's new business partner. Suddenly Hunter is tempted to say yes. Lydia Montgomery has lived the life of a trophy wife. Now she's a trophy widow, with a young daughter to support, longing for independence and purpose. The last thing she needs is another strong-willed man in her life. But Hunter's surprisingly sensual touch, an intoxicating mix of desire and tenderness, is making her reconsider. Can a man who has always been alone, and a woman who has never stood on her own, take the biggest gamble of all…together?
