Riding the stagecoach to Willow Grove, Texas, Camille Dupree hoped to leave behind her shocking secrets. For years, she’d brazened out the whispers about her unseemly talents as a professional gambler until it was time to move to the next town. Camille longed to reclaim her innocence and believe in the goodness of others, but would she be given the chance to start over?
In the burgeoning West, a good heart was a valued commodity, and Camille developed a reciprocal appreciation for her neighbors…especially the town’s mayor, Tyler McKinnon, who saw more beauty and virtue in Camille than she’d ever seen in herself. With his help, she became a respectable businesswoman.
But ill-wishers threatened to destroy her hard-won acceptance, and Camille found herself in need of the town’s forgiveness…and Tyler’s. Could she trust the man she loved to bend his principles and extend the pardon that would bless them both?
