Camille Dupree is a cardsharp. She's known at poker tables as the Angel, but she leaves her card-playing days behind her when she moves to Willow Grove, Texas, and meets Tyler McKinnon, the town's mayor. She soon finds a decent job that doesn't involve setting foot inside a saloon and joins the local church. The overall theme of the book is forgiveness: we know God can forgive Camille's sinful past, but can Tyler? Can the town accept her with her flaws? It's funny reading how scandalized the town became after it's revealed that Camille lived with her boyfriend without benefit of marriage (back then, it was considered living in sin), compared to today when marriage is seen as nothing more than a piece of paper.

Camile Dupree hoped to leave her shocking past behind when she moved to Willow Groove, Texas. She soon learned a good heart was a valued commodity and grew to admire the town's mayor, Tyler Mckinnon, who helped her become a respectable businesswoman.
But when her hard -won acceptance was threatened,Camile found she needed 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?

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?
