Born into the infamous Charlemagne equestrian empire, Shannon has been raised to do whatever it takes for the family business. Even if it means going undercover and digging up dirt on a competitor. It's easy enough when she believes he's a bad guy whose success seems too good to be true. In fact, Shannon's excited to put the aggravatingly sexy Irishman in his place and get back in her father's good graces. All she needs is to stay focused on the goal … and out of Sean Muldoon's arms.
From stealing a thoroughbred racehorse from the Irish mob to striking gold in the mountains of Colorado, there's little Sean hasn't experienced. But when it comes to resisting his hot new stable manager, he's out of luck. With the mob hot on his heels, keeping Shannon off their radar is all but impossible, and he's not about to put her in danger too. Sean wants Shannon, but how can he offer her a future … when he can't even guarantee tomorrow?
Getting Lucky is the first book in the Fortune, Colorado series and it is a pretty good start. When starting a new series it sometimes is a crapshoot on if you are going to be able to effectively balance the introduction to the characters and series as well as get your readers engaged and drawn into the storyline. Luckily this time the author was able to find that perfect balance and had me engaged from almost the beginning.
Let us take a brief minute to appreciate the sexiness that is Sean. He’s full blooded Irish people, let that tid bit sink in for just an additional moment. He has a past, one that he tries to keep hidden but knows that he still needs to watch his back. Shannon has secrets as well, and her reason for being there may not be the most honest but I can understand the reasoning behind it.
There is drama, and secrets, and romance in Getting Lucky. I had not previously read anything by this author prior to Getting Lucky, but I can safely say that I will be watching out for the release of the rest of this series as well as checking out her previous books. This is the perfect example of giving an author you had not previously read a chance, because sometimes you find ones that you just know you will read for a long time in the future.
