She played right into his hands.
The River Rogues, Book 1
Possessing uncanny people-reading skills like her mama,
Philadelphia â€śDellâ€ť Samuels has spent thirteen years in her
auntâ€™s rustic Ozarks home, telling fortunes over playing
cards and trying to pass as white. But the treacherous
Mississippi River childhood her mama dragged her away from
finally catches up to her on a steamboat captained by her
old friend Rory Campbell.
Known to his crew as the Devilâ€™s Henchman, Rory is a gambler
in need of a miracle. Following the cold trail of his bossâ€™s
wife and bastard daughter, Dell, Rory has only one goal in
mind: saving his crew from the bossâ€™s cruelty by ruining
him. The only one who can defeat the Monster of the
Mississippi is the man trained to take his place. Roryâ€™s
convinced he can lure his boss into a high-stakes game
against a rival, and with Dellâ€™s people-reading skills, the
monster will lose everything.
Under Roryâ€™s tutelage and protection, Dell agrees to the
tortured captainâ€™s plan. Passion and peril quickly bring
them together as lovers. But when Roryâ€™s plan goes awry, the
lives of the innocent depend on Dellâ€™s ability to read the
situation correctlyâ€”and hopefully save them all.
Warning: Thereâ€™s not enough moonshine on the Mississippi to
keep this fortuneteller from saving The Devilâ€™s Henchman, a
high-stakes gamblerâ€”and her childhood friendâ€”from his bossâ€™s
cruel attentions. Touches upon issues of child abuse,
revenge, and redemption.
