Whitney Lehman has always prided herself on being one of the guys. As member of an elite wildfire fighting crew, the diminutive redhead pulls her weight both on and off the fire line in her circle of male companions. The brotherhood accepts her as one of their own.
With one exception.
As a newcomer to the fire crew, handsome Jude Kramer isn't as impressed as the other men with Whitney. He finds her too outspoken and belligerent for her own good and thinks what this little firebrand needs is a good comeuppance.
For her part, Whitney just wants him gone. So when Jude makes an unusual offer at the weekly poker game - a wager that will have him depart if she wins or her listen to him for two weeks if she loses - she's unable to resist. Five Card Stud is her game after all.
Or is it? And will his winning hand be able to tame her after all?
