Money certainly changes Jenner Redwine's life when she wins a lottery jackpot. But it also costs her plenty: Her father rips her off and disappears, her fortune-hunting boyfriend soon becomes her ex, and friends-turned-freeloaders give her the cold shoulder when she stops paying for everything. Flush with new money, Jenner can't imagine ever finding a place in the world of the wealthy. Seven years later, though, she's rubbing elbows with the rich, despite the fact she still feels like a party crasher.

Great start, lousy finish

I wanted to like this book. I did. But it's not one of Linda Howard's best. The main character's story in the first section of the book is good and well developed and interesting, but I didn't feel like there was any point to the relationship between the two main characters beyond a few sex scenes. It felt more like a train wreck in the making than any sort of romance, that the characters were "in lust" rather than love, and the author just wanted to finish the book.
