Lucky in Love.

Relationships take work, but falling in love...that's easy. Right? Love happens everyday. I'll resist the urge to quote Love Actually and point out that is, in fact, all around. (Damn I love me some Bill Nighy, and Alan Rickman and Colin Firth and Hugh Grant.) So why isn't the entire world snuggled up beside their beloved, blissfully happy? Could it all come down to luck? I know I like to say that I won the husband lottery, but I'm not sure I think it's that straightforward. ;)

Are some of us simply lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time?

Maybe we should be carrying good luck charms to increase our chances of meeting "the one".

Is finding true love as simple as locating a four leaf clover?

Colin, the hero in my new novella, The Best Man, would say yes. He knows, without a shadow of a doubt, that luck alone put him on the path of Beth Chase, wedding planner and woman of his dreams. He's still working on convincing her of that. ;)

 Beth Chase is too busy planning perfect weddings to worry about the lack of action in her own love life. But if she was looking for a man, she wouldn’t be looking at Colin Pratt. Her boss swears that Best Man Colin is a quiet scholar and science fiction writer who couldn’t possibly cause a fuss at his own brother’s wedding. He’s clearly never met the man in question. Snarky, sexy and more than a little inebriated, Colin is the final obstacle between Beth and the last perfect wedding she needs to make partner. Of course, when she helps him into a taxi at the end of the night she has no idea that he’s only just begun to poke holes in her professional exterior. Colin might have the skills to seduce a romance professional, but can he convince her that he’s the best man to share her happy ever after?

The Best Man releases through Entranced Publishing on April 29, 2013! You can add it to your Goodreads Want To Read Shelves now.

  20. We have great corned beef and sandwiches and chill. Not big on the whole parade and hoopla. Definitely wearing green though…don’t want to get pinched…although a spanking would be a different story!
    I have not yet been lucky in love, ie finding my soulmate, but hope springs eternal!

  22. I think At Last looks great. Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. Looks amazing..thanks

  24. Hmm... I have not read any of these three books and I would like to read them all so I think I would like to say that if I were fortunate enough to be chosen as the winner, I would ask for either the one that was first to be written or the authors choice of which would be the best to read first (because once I read one, I'd have to get the others anyway!).

    Thank you for the chance to enter :D Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone :)
