Mallory Devereaux is known throughout the town of Royal Flush, Louisiana as a walking disaster and her luck just got worse. She needs to raise ten-thousand dollars in one week to keep the IRS from seizing her adopted father’s business where she works as the demolition foreman.
When the opportunity to cool cards at her uncle’s casino comes up, Mallory hopes her luck is changing. But when she realizes her uncle has assembled a tournament of criminals, she wonders what she’s stepped in the middle of.
FBI agent Jake Randoll needs to take down a money launderer and the poker tournament is the last chance he’ll get before the criminal flees the country. Jake obtains the position of dealer with Mallory as his table assistant, but he’s not prepared for the mojo that Mallory can serve up in a single touch.
