When her father loses the family's Nevada ranch in a poker game, Hope McNaughton decides to win it back--from New Jersey Mafia boss Big Julie Saladino. She hasn't played cards in a while. But she's got time...thirty days. Thirty days before they have to move out or swim with the fishes.
Hope calls on her honorary uncles--who are totally legit, honestly--to sharpen her game. Poker champion Tanner Wingate--whose shady past is all behind him, really--wants to pull her out of that deep water and into his life.
Hope doesn't want to get mixed up with a card shark like Tanner, who's too much like her father--an irresponsible gambler who cheats and takes too many risks. But she'll do what she has to do to get the ranch back.
When she and Tanner both wind up in the Big Game with Big Julie, only one of them can win. And whoever walks away with the pot will be the biggest loser.
But Tanner knows that the game's not really over until the fat lady sings, and all they need is a fake black ops mission to discover that love's not such a gamble, after all.
