LUCKY IN LOVE
Shalvis pens a tale rife with the three “H”s of romance: heat, heart and humor. Lucky in Love is a down-to-the-toes charmer, with a sexy wounded hero and a generous and insecure heroine in a town full of “it’s all for your own good” busybodies. It doesn’t matter if you’re chuckling or reaching for an iced drink to cool down the heat her characters generate — Shalvis doesn’t disappoint.
Mallory Quinn has had it with taking care of everyone but herself. Maybe it’s time to take a risk with somebody like new guy in town, Ty Garrison? Ty keeps his distance and makes it clear he’s only passing through, which works for Mallory. So does his hard body and sexy smile, and she figures she’ll have plenty of memories when he moves on. On a recuperative leave from the military, it seems that, for the first time, Ty isn’t thinking about leaving town after taking a taste of the sexy siren with the gentle touch. He doesn’t mind helping her take a walk on the wild side, but can their fun lead to something permanent? (FOREVER, Jun., 400 pp., $7.99)
