***SPOILER***
The writing was fine. The story was interesting. The major betrayal was a huge turn off. ( )

A Game of Chance
4 Stars

Chance Mackenzie, the half-wild child adopted by Wolf and Mary Mackenzie, has become a dedicated undercover agent. When information concerning the daughter of a notorious terrorist comes to his attention, Chance embarks on a mission to seduce her and discover the extent of her involvement in her father’s business. However, there is more to Sonia “Sunny” Miller than meets the eye and Chance soon realizes that he is willing to risk a lot more than his life to learn her secrets…

A sweet ending to a highly entertaining series.

While Chance is certainly overbearing, manipulative and arrogant, there is still something endearing about him. Perhaps it is his harsh childhood or his abiding loyalty to family, or perhaps it is his dark nature and tortured soul. Regardless, Chance is a particularly charming hero despite his shortcomings.

Sunny (by name and by nature) is just as appealing. She is exceedingly resourceful and copes with dire situations with a strong backbone and a calm demeanor. My one small caveat is that despite her obvious intelligence and her awareness of her situation, she still fails to notice Chance’s machinations. For someone on the run, she is far too accepting of events.

The minor suspense plot unravels quickly but plausibly and the glimpses along the way into Mackenzie family life are wonderful.

Looking forward to reading more of Linda Howard this year. ( )

Loved it. I'm really going to miss the MacKenzie family. ( )

rabck box from bookstogive 03/11; double entendre in the title. The hero's name is Chance, and he's playing a chancy game to catch a terrorist. Sunny's father is the terrorist, and Chance thinks she's running shipments for him. When he intentionally intercepts her and strands them in a box canyon in the Nevada desert, he finds that she's running from Dad - and now he makes her the bait to capture the crook. ( )

Coming back to Wyoming--coming home--always evoked in Chance Mackenzie such an intense mixture of emotions that he could never decide which was strongest, the pleasure or the acute discomfort.

Book description
Undercover agent Chance Mackenzie knew that the best way to capture an elusive terrorist was to use the man's daughter as bait, so he cleverly seduced Sunny Miller and set out to discover her father's whereabouts. Sunny's own innocence was questionable, and gaining her trust was nearly impossible. And even with all his experience and training, Chance found it difficult to overlook her beauty.

However, Chance soon realized that Sunny wasn't running from him-she was running for her life, and she needed Chance's protection. But keeping Sunny safe would involve telling her the truth-about his mission and what she'd done to his heart.
