Delilah D’Evereaux refuses to accept what fate hands her. Left vulnerable in a man’s world, she takes her only legacy, a talent for gambling, and seeks revenge against Ross Farrell, the man she holds responsible for her father’s death. But Delilah makes one mistake. With a turn of the cards, she becomes the mistress of the very man she despises.
Ross Farrell gets more than he bargained for, an unwilling mistress, her black companion, an orphan and his mongrel dog. But the real challenge is keeping Delilah alive long enough to find the real killer, and to change his unwilling mistress into a very willing lover.
