Gambler Jed Stone journeys to California to track down Simon
Morgan, the man responsible for his best friend’s
death. Arrested for robbery and murder upon arrival, Jed is
shocked to see his face on a wanted poster. He escapes
before his hanging, unaware that the man guilty of those
crimes is the twin brother he never knew existed. In a case
of mistaken identity, Jed acquires the most famous
whorehouse in San Francisco in a rigged card game his twin
is meant to win.
Lily Frontiere takes over running Lucky Lil’s from her
dying mother, the house madam who shielded her by sending
her away to boarding school. Lily’s intelligence and
astonishing resemblance to her mother help in her charade,
but she’s entered a world she knows little about. She
clashes with the handsome stranger who turns up with the
deed to Lucky Lil’s in hand, yet she is attracted to
the charming risk taker.
But Simon Morgan seeks both Lily’s hand and ownership
of Lucky Lil’s—and he will go to any means to
possess both. Will Jed foil his nemesis while bringing his
outlaw brother to justice and win Lily’s love?
