Having heard that Linda Howard wrote this book under duress from her fans, it was a lot better story than I had expected. We had a long time to wait for Chance's story and here it is. At least it wasn't a short story like Maris Mackenzie's and we do get to meet some of the family we love from the other books in the series :) I am glad she wrote the book but the steamy sexual tension Linda Howard now creates in her books could have been hotter. If you love Wolf and his family you must buy this book, now we wait for the further adventures of Zane's daughter Nick, she is going to break hearts and give her Daddy many grey hairs when she starts dating. Please Ms Howard take note and give us another Mackenzie book! I give this book 4 stars not 5.

I loved this book. Like many, after the story of Wolf and Mary, Joe and Caroline,Zane and Barrie and then Maris and Alex, I was DESPERATE for a story about Chance. Ms Howard hasn't let us down - this is passionate, entertaining, full of the love we have come to expect from the Mackensie clan.
It filled in the gaps as to Chance's history, and it was believeable - Chance was never going to fall for Ms Ordinary. Sunny was a fantastic heroine - strong, passionate, and had already proved herself more than capable of looking after herself. A more than suitable match for Chance.
I will miss the Mackensie's - I reread them every so often to remind myself that such stories can be written - and I salute you Ms Howard - I am a lifelong fan and am now the proud owner of all your books. I would love to read Nick's story, but perhaps that is for the future. For now, I return to Chance and Sunny one more time, and the opportunity to see how some of the 'older' characters have got on since last we met.
Once again I thank you for giving your fans what they craved - another book to treasure.

inda Howard is one of my favourite authors, and her Mackenzie's Mountain was one of her earlier works that set her above the rest of the writers coming out of Silhouette Intimate Moments. A Game of Chance, is a continuation of that series, following Mackenzie's Mission. Surprisingly, it's rather a tame read for Howard. Chance Mackenzie, the adopted brother to Zane, is on a mission to capture a known terrorist and his unknown mole in the FBI. The only way to get to him is through the daughter he has never seen, Sunny Miller. Sunny is the one link and Chance intends to set her up to lure her father out.
He arranges it so she is nearly robbed in an airport. She is a courier and she missed her flight because of it, just as Chase intends. When she says she has to get her case to San Francisco ASAP, Chase offers to fly her there. Once they are out a ways, Chase fakes fuel pump trouble and sets down in a secluded canyon, with Zane on their trail keeping an eye on them. The whole purpose of this is to get Sunny to depend upon Chase, get her to trust him. They spend nearly ten days with Sunny thinking they are fighting to survive. Only, once Chance learns there is another sister and that Sunny is not in league with her father, he let's them be "rescued", just to use Sunny as bait. He leaks her whereabouts knowing the FBI mole will give the information away.
Chase is just a wee bit non-caring about using Sunny in the beginning. And the fact she has fallen in love with him does not make him blink at using her as bait. The depth that is usually there in Howard's characters is just missing from this tale. It's all very predictable, with the mole tossed in at the last minute, so there is no mystery.
Rather disappointing, considering the powerhouse Howard always is. It was nearly 40 pages into the book before we meet Sunny. In a 250 page book that is a long time before you actually get into the story. And sorry, Chance just really loses points at being such a user.

Another great read about the MACKENZIE clan The interaction between Sunny and Chance was tender, sensual and riveting. I couldn't as with all this family put it down. The love this family has between each other and the partners it welcomes is heartwarming. You feel as if this is a real family. It was so nice to give a man who had known so little love a woman with plenty to give. Please please Ms Howard give Sunny,s sister a right to deserve love. What a joy to your fans if you could write her story And as with a lot of other fans WHAT ABOUT NICK's story

At last Chance's story, and it didn't disappoint. I love all of the MacKenzie clan stories, and only wish that Linda Howard would write more. I know that she feels that some of the characters are 'fully resolved', and don't need their stories written, but I would love to read them.

It was a nice ending to the series. I had read the four books in the series and I found out laer that there was a fifth book. The author didn't disappoint. Chance's story was all that the others were. I loved the fact that Chance and Wolf had their talks. And for Chance to admit that he thought he was never going to be a good dad. loved Wolf's response that he was HIS son, and then to give his son the name Wolf. It was a fittng end to the Mackenzie saga.

This is the last of the McKenzie Books and was an excellent story to finish up with.

The story about Chance the adopted son of Mary and Wolf McKenzie and how he fell in love with Sunny his target and pawn to catch her father a terrorist was really good.

You also caught up with his brother Zane and his family especially Danni, his daughter who keeps them on their toes.

This was a good story to finish the series.

Have had this book since it came out. Very happy it's in the kindle library. Sad it's only this and Maris's story that I can get on kindle. Would love to get the whole series of MacKenzie books on my kindle.

This book is... brilliant. I enjoyed this one above all the others. I was sad it ended. I don't really have anything negative to say. All I can say is go read it!!! Chance is wonderful :-)
