Lucky Santanelli's strength is her independence--but learns after meeting EZ Dalton that it is also her greatest weakness--leaving her alone and lonely. His strenght, thrust on him after his mother's death, is taking care of his family. When Lucky is faced with completing the grieving process after her father's death, EZ wonders if he can allow himself to care for the woman he'd fallen in love with because she didn't need him.

Story: Lucky wants to sever all past ties with her late father, including dumping the amusement park she's inherited from him. She'll even sell her half to the other owner for a penny, but EZ Dalton wouldn't even pay a penny when he finds out whose daughter she is. Instead he wants revenge. Their fathers built the park years ago then Lucky's father got into organized crime and ended up taking all the profits, leaving EZ's dad high and dry. The place is rundown and EZ knows Lucky's business skills be can get Funland in the black. Can Lucky pull the job off in the month she's agreed to stay? When she has to fill in for the fortuneteller, the saloon dancer and even be part of a dancing horse to EZ's other half, she has her doubts. But the park's financial situation starts to improve and Lucky finds her desire to leave weakening. She's grown close to the fortuneteller who becomes a father figure. Her own never spent anytime with her, leaving her to be tended to by bodyguards after her mother's death

EZ thought he wanted revenge until he gets to know Lucky. Now all he wants is her to. Her independence is what attracts her to EZ, who has spent most of his life caring for his father and helping to raise his sister after their mother died. He wanted nothing more than to lose the job of family caretaker, until his sister looks to Lucky for guidance and he becomes jealous. In the heat of anger, he says Lucky has no right to tell his sister what to do since she is not family. Lucky is hurt and goes to the fortuneteller. When he comforts her, he calls her Lucy. No one knew that was her name. She finds out Zos is her father. He'd faked his death, distanced himself from her after she was kidnapped as a child. He stole the Funland money to pay the ransom. His way of loving her was to keep away so his enemies wouldn't use her against him. But one enemy called his bluff, and he ended up faking his death to protect her. Now, he is dying, but she's come to forgive him. Can she forgive EZ, too? He lied to her about his father, and kept her here to save the park for his dad. She goes to him and accidentally she sees his law degree. As a lawyer, he knew all along that her businesses wouldn't have been affected if Funland went bankrupt. Still, he's told her the truth now. When he'd sought revenge and lied, he didn't love her. She's learned to forgive her father, and EZ, too. They'll marry and once again form a partnership with the Santanellis and the Daltons.
