It was the first time Jack Hartman had thrown a dollar into the kitty for lottery tickets, and he won more than a million dollars as part of a 12-way split. This is his chance to get out of the small Montana town and away from the pain of his past. As he's preparing to leave, however, every eligible woman around seems to want to catch him. To avoid the pressure, Jack decides he needs a pretend relationship with his business partner, Melinda Woods. It doesn't take long for the plan to backfire as Jack finds himself reevaluating his business arrangement. Leah Vale delivers a nice read in BIG-BUCKS BACHELOR (3), with touches of humor and a great small-town feel.
