Lucky

Ive unraveled the last knot and tied the final bow in the trilogy of Johnny Houston's daughters. I'm sorry it's over because my only sister died in 1985, and I sort of adopted these three sisters. I hope you like LUCKY's story.

LUCKY was Johnny's baby girl, the only daughter who understood what made him tick. Even she had not been able to forgive him. He'd given her his skill with cards, and a yearning to see the 'shiny places' which he'd often described, but she didn't have the fever. There was no way on God's earth that Lucky Houston would ever bet a penny of her money, or anything else, on a game of chance.

But that was before she met Nick Chenault. Before she got tangled up in a stranger's past and found out that they weren't so different after all. It was also before she fell in love.

Nick Chenault loved Lucky Houston enough to die for her, and that's very nearly what he had to do. And when he survived, their world should have been complete. Little did they know that the worst was yet to come...

"You! It would have been you!" Lucky said.

Nick saw her sway. In seconds, he had an arm around her and led her to a sofa near the window.

"Now," he said, "what is it you have to tell me?" Then he smiled.

And Lucky forgot for a moment that she'd heard someone threaten to kill him. All she could see, all she could think of, was that when Nick Chenault smiled, his eyes lit from within. For a heartbeat, she imagined she could see straight into his soul. And as she did, she thought she saw a loneliness in him that matched the kind she felt.

"They're going to kill you," she said.

Nick's smile died. First in his eyes. Then on his lips. Without making a sound, he pinned her with a hand on either side of the sofa behind her head, until their faces were separated by the space of their breaths.

"Who the hell are you?" he demanded. "And how did you know that?"

I hope you love Lucky's story, as well as the gambling man who's willing to lose everything to keep the woman he loves.

Also, watch for DREAMCATCHER, a November '95 release from HarperMonogram. While it is my first time-travel, I don't think it will be my last. And I promise you, after you read it, you'll never think of sleep the same way again.
