I’ve posted variations of this blog because to me, discussing contemporary romance never gets old. love to read and write contemporaries. I love to talk to others who read contemporaries and gauge what they have to say about current books and authors. Recently I got to thinking about the books I’ve written.
The Hot Zone – Sports Heroes
The Chandler Brothers – Brothers and their mother who wants grandchildren
The Costas Sisters – polar opposite twin sisters with an Atlantic City con family
Ty and Hunter – 3 best friends, separated by a deep dark secret
The many Temptations I’ve written over the years
THE LUCKY SERIES – 3 sexy male cousin plagued by a family curse.
I don’t want anyone to think the word “curse” means the LUCKY series is a twist on what I write. Let me be clear. The LUCKY Series is NOT a paranormal series. It doesn’t pretend to be. What the Lucky series does, finishing up with LUCKY BREAK in stores tomorrow, is to touch on the notion that a curse can actually be many thing from a streak of bad luck to a self fulfilling prophecy – and how an affected family and those who love them suffer in the process. The newest generation of Corwin men want to find love and break the curse – but they don’t know how. Derek in LUCKY CHARM reunited with the love he let go in order to protect her from the curse and is now praying that she is his lucky charm. Mike in LUCKY STREAK found a woman adept at gambling and one willing to take risks, their love being the biggest risk of all. And up now in LUCKY BREAK is the last Corwin cousin, Jason.
Jason is the most fascinating cousin because his long ago love is Lauren Perkins – of the same Perkins family whose ancestor supposedly placed the curse. The families are supposed to be enemies. Her grandmother wreaked havoc on the town and the Corwin family for years. Her sister is in prison for Arson, having perpetuated her grandmother’s legacy. So Lauren wants only to sell her grandmother’s old house and move on with her life away from the bad memories. But that’s not such an easy thing to do when Jason Corwin shows up in her life again. First he insists on being the one to renovate the house. Then he whispers sweet, sexy somethings in her ear … about staying in town. Soon a saboteur and the promise of hidden treasure changes everything – and one lucky break just might put an end … to the Corwin curse forever.
