“[Vivian Vaughan] can always be counted on to deliver a moving, tender romance.” —AFFAIRE DE COEUR
Serita Cortinas will do anything to save her Texas ranch, even if it means being the stakes in her father’s card game. The man to win her hand isn’t the groom of her dreams—he’s arrogant and brooding. But as it turns out, Captain Giddeon Duval may be exactly what she needs to ward off the threat of land raiders.
Giddeon isn’t looking for a wife, only access to Los Olmos, when his lucky hand wins him the spirited Serita. But as the undeniable desire he feels for the insolent beauty overtakes him, he realizes he’ll do whatever it takes to vanquish her enemies and conquer her heart as well.
