Sam "Ace" Rothstein, the consummate bookie who can change the odds merely by placing a bet, has risen through the ranks of the Midwestern mob to be picked by the bosses to front their entree into Vegas. Ace lives and breathes the odds. He eventually doubles the mob''s take and changes the rules of how the casinos are run. But he can''t control the odds when it comes to Ginger McKenna, the chip-hustling vamp who charms Ace and becomes his wife.

Together, they run the perfect operation, with Ace in charge and Nicky providing the muscle. But as Nicky expands his interests and each man gains power, their lives become entangled in a story of hot tempers, obstinacy, money, love and deception.

She also finds that her own sexual proclivity is not as clear-cut as she''d always imagined. Remy, a quiet kid from Idaho who has no social skills, turns to the only group who''ll have him--the skinheads. He''s so grateful for their acceptance that he finds he''ll do anything to stay in their good graces.
