From author Fayrene Preston comes a pulse-quickening Delaney novel. A dark and mysterious casino owner finds himself falling for a beautiful gambler who keeps her secrets close to her heart.
Sydney Delaney sets out to win one third of the money needed to make her family sheep station, Killaroo, whole again. She had chosen gambling as the way to do it.
She was on the Isle of Charron, owned by the infamous Nicolas Charron and she had chosen his casino from which to win the money she needed.
Very few people ever saw him. He was as dark and as mysterious as the night he preferred to inhabit. He commanded the wild swans to fly. He commanded her heart to beat faster. He stole the breath from her lungs.
She watched women do outrageous things in order to catch his attention, but somehow she’d known, it was she he watched.
