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.
“Camilla, I’m falling in love you.”
She lifted her head and pushed the rolled jeans back into place as a pillow. “You shouldn’t have said that. That complicates everything,” she said quietly. Her expression closed. Shut him out. He hoped he’d captured her heart, but it appeared her mind wanted to war again.
“Why? Most people fight to find the perfect love.”
She tried to move him, but he refused to budge. “Perfect?” she snapped. “There’s nothing perfect about me.”
“Woman, I’m explaining that I love you. I want you in my life.”
She sprang up.
“I’ve got to go, Jared. I told you, you don’t know me.”
She was incorrect in her understanding. He knew about her. He knew her heart. She loved him. He’d been with enough women to understand Camilla was the only one he’d ever loved. Completely.
