His gaze roamed her breasts before sliding to her waist and when she dropped the silk bloomers to the floor, he swallowed the sudden lump in his throat.
She glanced up at him and made a face. “Don’t look so scandalized. It isn’t as if you haven’t seen it all before.” She bent at the waist, untied the ribbon on her stockings and pulled them both off, crossing the room and grabbing his arm to steady herself before sinking into the tub with a sigh.
Tristan stared down at her, watched the water ripple over her breasts, and his entire body jolted.
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.
