A Game of Chance
by Linda Howard

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.

This is a first-time regular print hardcover edition of a title previously available as a mass market paperback.
