I’m a card shark, so taking the lead on the new casino on Villroy is a natural fit. I’m personally invested, and I’m proud to run the place. Except, after a month in operation, it’s been more of a headache than I ever imagined. I need a right-hand man (or woman) to take some of the pressure off.
And then my twin, Silvia, gets in touch about Sara, a girl we were close to as children when her family summered in Villroy. Sara was like me—loving poker and loving to win. We upped each other’s games. At twelve, we swore a solemn vow to marry when we were twenty-five. Silly, I know.
We’re now twenty-five.
But that’s not why Silvia contacted me. Sara is in trouble, running a poker game in New York and upping the pot high enough to attract the wealthy underbelly of the city. Of course, I ride to the rescue! I don’t want her to put herself in danger, and she’s the perfect person to join me at Villroy’s casino.
Except the stubborn woman won’t stop her game, won’t leave New York, won’t leave her sister who she’s raised and who goes to college there.
So I linger. They need me back home, but she needs me too. And the longer I linger, the deeper I fall. I can’t give up my casino, yet I can’t give her up either. But can I convince her to give us the chance our younger selves knew we deserved?
