Meet Camilla Lind:
A tear ripped Camilla’s heart. The man was getting married? The image of her private dance with him sprouted wings and flew away.
Camilla scooped up her ante and tucked the winning hundred and fifty into the front pocket of her frayed jean shorts. “Nice playing with ya’ll.”
The three men circled her. “What’s your hurry?” When one of the men grabbed her arm, she jerked away. “Don’t touch me.” Her gaze darted from man to man. Swallowing hard, she took in a deep breath to mask her fear, then released her breath and squared her shoulders.
“Little lady, we know how to take care of a woman as good as any dude from the south.”
“Excuse me.” A tall, tanned man inserted himself into the group. Blond streaked his sandy brown hair, and a pale thin scar in front of his ear ran from his hairline to his jaw, adding to his ruggedly handsome good looks. She guessed he was a businessman from the dark khaki slacks and crisply pressed, light blue shirt with a button-down collar. His eyes glowed deep blue. Camilla drowned in those eyes. Her mouth dried like someone had stuffed it with cotton. Her breath caught in her throat. ‘Gorgeous’ ran through her brain as though it were the only word in the world she remembered.
