Unfortunately, his first assignment involves teaming up with the only woman who ever broke his heart. But bringing down cold-blooded killer Bulls-Eye Brady would restore his tarnished career, and as a personal bonus, he vows to show his old flame how it feels to love and lose. Retired cardsharp Kat Simmons has been in hiding for six years. Now she's being asked to risk her hard-won obscurity by baiting the very man she fears. Not only that, the plan involves spending intimate time with Rome, the only man she ever truly loved. Readopting her flamboyant persona, Kat joins Rome on a whirlwind poker tournament tour, gaining notoriety as they clean up at the tables. With any luck, when word gets out that Kat Simmons is back on the circuit, Bulls-Eye Brady will show up to reclaim the woman who "got away."
