From USA Today bestselling author Glynnis Campbell...A half-native gambler on the run tangles with a spirited Italian beauty who takes his money and steals his heart, but the scheming young miss can't resist the handsome gunslinger, even when she learns he's a wanted man.
When ambitious Catalina di Ferrara turns her back on her noble Italian past to pursue her dream of designing dresses in America, she quickly learns that jobs in high fashion are scarce in the mountain town of Paradise, California. Her determination to succeed, however, earns her a position—in a less-than-upstanding establishment.
For half-native twin Drew Hawk, life means a poker deck, a Colt 45, and the open road, until he crosses the wrong man and has to make a quick getaway. But he doesn't mind hiding out in Paradise, especially when he takes a gander at the beautiful and spirited Catalina working in the town's Parlor.
Cat manages to drain the handsome gambler's funds while never quite delivering the goods. But Drew is captivated by the clever lady, and it takes all of Cat's willpower to resist the gambling gunslinger's charm. When the law finally comes for him with guns blazing, will Cat risk her heart and prove to be Drew's Lady Luck?
