Draven McCormick is a gambler, but he’s also a businessman. When the man across the table offers up his stunning wife, and the papers of their marriage, he’s no fool. He takes the bet and wins. Now what to do with her?
Regina trusted too much when she became a mail order bride. The man she married lied about everything, but most of all himself. When he gambles her away, she’s not overly shocked or actually upset. What could be worse than the situation she’s already in? And what if Draven can give her what she’s always dreamed of?
Draven was wonderful. A powerful man given absolute power over a woman in the 1800’s and he treats her with kid gloves. He’s not so nice he doesn’t immediately take her to bed, but who can blame him? He’s been missing something and suddenly Regina seems to fill that void. As for Regina, Draven is a revelation. He’s kind but dominant, passionate but caring. Their coming together was almost meant to be, and neither wastes the opportunity. While love wasn’t proclaimed, it was certainly growing and that promise of a future of love and laughter for Draven and Regina was the perfect ending.
