It took him a few moments to see her and when he did, his eyes widened before he tried to sit up straight in his seat. The floozy in his lap prevented it and Emmaline threw him a sarcastic smile before glancing at the girl. “Slumming it, Tristan? I would have thought a man as wealthy as you would find your pleasure in one of the more upscale whore houses in town.” She smiled when the woman on his lap gasped and tried to look offended. “I know money can’t buy you everything but I thought it would at least buy you a women that didn’t have the spending’s of four other men still on her thighs.”
The Gambler – Willow Creek, Book 3
Emmaline Hunt only had one thing she could call her own. A piece of land that held a secret not even her drunken stepfather knew about. When he gambles it away in a high stakes poker game, Emmaline does the only thing she can. She tries to steal the land deed back.
Tristan Avery has seen his share of bloodshed while sitting at a gaming table and knows its time to lay low when he wins a wad of cash and a piece of land. Especially after his opponent ends up dead at his feet. High tailing it out of town is his only option but things take a drastic turn when he finds a woman in his hotel room trying to rob him blind.
The botched robbery attempt is only the start of his troubles when Tristan finds his new land occupied by the same girl who tried to rob him. When he realizes he’s left her homeless, and killed her stepfather, his conscience forces him to do the right thing. Taking her to his hometown and setting her up with a new life will make up for all he’s taken from her.
But Emmaline has other plans. She wants her land, and Tristan’s money, and she’ll do whatever it takes to get them. All she has to do is convince him she’s there to stay, outwit him, find a way back home and not let a single soul know she has a gold mine bursting at the seems with untapped wealth.
