Darcy Wallace finally got the courage to choose her own destiny and left her controlling ex-fiancé and headed from Kansas to Las Vegas. She almost makes it before her car breaks down, forcing her to make the rest of the trek on foot. When she reaches the Comanche, she spends the last of her money playing a progressive slot machine…and hits the jackpot before she passes out from exhaustion. Casino manager Mac MacGregor sets up the suddenly wealthy Darcy while she comes to term with the fact that she may finally be able to pursue her own dreams.
Darcy was pretty naive, especially next to the urbane Mac, but somehow they brought the best out of each other. Her emergence into her own true skin and self was fun to experience. She’d never been on her own and certainly not seen any of the world outside of her hometown. And Mac had to be careful to not subconsciously take control. It was a lovely romance despite Mac’s few boneheaded moves.
The story was even more enjoyable after the appearance of the extended MacGregor clan as they descended into Mac’s world once they recognized someone had finally captured his heart. Grandfather Daniel was his typical devious self, nudging the two whenever the opportunity presented itself. This is one of my favorites in the series.
