She's Pallas, a financial genius and top-notch poker player, at Lake Tahoe to solve a family mystery and win the money she needs to launch her career. He's Danny, a casino owner whose new club is his whole life. Someone's out to destroy his dream: a situation that threatens Pallas's plans as much as her attraction to Danny threatens her peace of mind. Danny has enough to handle without worrying about the redhead he can't seem to get out of his thoughts, especially when she's determined to get involved. Together, they find out who's behind the attacks on Danny's club and a twenty-year-old murder. Can they stay alive long enough to answer the question: Can a goddess and a gambler live happily ever after?
