On the trail of a vicious criminal, agent Chance Mackenzie found the perfect bait for his trap: Sunny Miller. So Chance made himself the only man she could trust—and then arranged for her long-missing father to find out about them.
What Chance hadn't foreseen was that Sunny had reasons of her own for hiding from her father—and now Chance's deception had brought them both one step closer to the end of everything they held dear….

This was a good book but when you have a female reader with a SWEET.....SWEET girl voice read it you just ruin the book. Chance was an undercover agent not so sweet person. Reader is ruining the book. Why couldn't you have gotten Dennis Boutsikaris who read all the rest and was wonderful. This reader has just ruined the book. Good God she reads so sweetly. WOW she stated. YUCK.
Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.
I have wanted this book on audio since I read the paperback. I agree with the other reviewer. Why have a woman do the narration. Why not use Dennis Boutsikaris - he narrated 3 other Mackenzie books, at least that way you would have the same voices. This Narrator may be okay but this was not the book for her. She was not terrible, but if I didn't already love the characters it would have made the experience worse than it had to be.
I was so excited it was on audio I forgot to check to see who the narrator was and was very surprised when it was a female. To have Zane, Chance and Wolfe read by a female; hard to take. The only thing that saved the book is it is a good story and it has the entire family in the book. Those that have followed the Mackenzie family will be happy to revisit the family.
The long wait for this book to finally be on audio was a bit disappointing with the narration, but it left me wanting the story of the Mackenzies to continue. It was fun to see how Chance succumbed to love, marriage and a baby. I know Linda Howard said she didn't think she would do anymore on this series because she couldn't bear to kill off Wolfe or Mary. She is right that would be horrible, but I think there is more to tell without doing that. I am sure she can find another story in this family saga to come up with two or three more books without killing any of the core family members. There seems to be so much more to adventure and tell about the Mackenzies their wives and children.
If you have not listened to the other books you won't be too surprised with the narration, however, you will want to listen to all of the books to get the whole story and understand the family dynamic. It starts with Mackenzie's Mountain. Don't listen to the abridged version to me they left out too much and it changed the story. I read the books and listened to all of them. The unabridged versions are the best unless of course you read the books.
This is a love story along the typical read boy wants girl gets her loses her gets her again but al in all it was a good book not sorry I bought it. And I'm also a Linda Howard fan
I loved the continuation of the family characters but more importantly, I adored the fully fledged character of Sunny. Her motives and background were fully explained and I loved her personality.
I want to start out by saying I love Linda Howard, her books are for the most part an automatic download for me. The only reason I have held off from listening to this series is the fact that the other books are so short, I hate the idea of wasting a credit of a 5 hour listen even if it is a Linda Howard. I took a chance and downloaded this one and loved it. You do not need to have listened to the other books in the series although it mentions some character I assume were previously featured this can definitely serve as a stand alone novel. I really enjoyed both Chance and Sunny. Everything about them and their story was an easy listen for me. While the obstacles standing in the way of their happily ever after are nothing innovative or unique I really enjoyed the entire listen. This download was full of passion and humor and I will definitely be listening to it again.
It was too forgettable, I have always heard about this series and maybe I should have listened to them in order. Now I am too skeptical to listen to another one in this series.
Yes they were both so typical.
This one did not meet my expectations. The whole story, characters, and the WHOLE book was so average!
Like the McKenzie series there is action and romance. Plus some comedy.
The desert and the picnic also when sunny meets nick.
I live full-time in a motorhome, traveling west of the Rockies.
Disappointing, but only because this book was not as terrifically 5 stars as the preceding two. Note that I HATE "woman in jeopardy" stories, but then Chance must use the woman he loves as bait BOTH to catch the bad guy and to free her from a life on the run. But he should have let her in on it and trusted her to be strong enough to help him end her life of terror. In addition, Chance isn't careful enouth of Sunny after he tricks her into the line of fire.
Mackenzie's Pleasure - much better story featuring Chance's brother Zane featuring a strong heroine who refuses to be a victim after she's kidnapped by terrorists from a rich socialite's life. Also, Zane is much more focused on protecting his lover in that story than Chance is, even after he realizes she's the target of a perverted madman.
I would have preferred the same male narrator as the preceding books in the series because this series have such very tough, take-charge male protagonists from a very male family. Another review that deplores the female narrator is way off base. She does an excellent job
When Chance realizes that Sunny is running from her father not acting as his agent
I have not read and/or listened to the previous books but this one is VERY GOOD! Love the strong, real characters she has in her books. She is full of good stories and good characters. Enjoying my listening of all of Linda Howard's books...I love her!
