Description: Two lowlifes want him dead, moral crusaders want him gone, and cocky young gambler Curt Prescott’s caught between two women who want his love.

23-year-old Curt Prescott plays better poker than men twice his age. His skill raised him from a life of degradation on the streets to a comfortable living with his girl, saloon songstress, Del, in Victoria, BC.

In the spring of 1877, a new preacher, his wife, and daughter, Mary, arrive. The preacher hopes to save the souls of Victoria’s “misguided”. His wife forms a committee to eradicate them. Curt must fight back with everything he has – including a plan to seduce Mary and shame the family.

As a notorious criminal, and Del’s jealous rages, threaten them all, Curt’s battle for his lifestyle becomes one of right and wrong, life and death, and love lost and found.

Chock-full of action, romance, and courage of the heart, High Stakes is an adventure for men and women alike.
