In this thrilling new novella from the New York Timesbestselling author of Blood Games, vampire Merit bites off more than she bargained for when a romantic trip to a secluded Colorado town turns deadly.
Merit and Ethan are in desperate need of some alone time, far from the worries of Cadogan House, but trouble tends to follow wherever they go. Their attempt at a romantic getaway is quickly interrupted when one of Ethan’s vampire friends shows up at their door–covered in blood and accused of killing her shifter husband.
Merit and her Master soon discover their vacation spot is far less idyllic than it appears. A centuries old quarrel between local vampires and shifters has made the town a perpetual supernatural battle zone, and this fresh blood has stirred the already volatile pot. Now, Merit and Ethan must put their passion on pause to figure out who’s really responsible for the murder before all hell breaks loose…
~ 3 Lucky Break Stars ~
I enjoyed reading Lucky Break. If you are a fan of the series or just starting then you will notice that the full length books are more about the vampires where the shorts focus on CNeill’s shifters.
Merit and Ethan are trying to have a vacation together, but as all things go their life is never duel and the vacation they planed gets turned upside down. This short does not really contribute to the series, just gives you a taste of what the series is about and shows us what vampires outside of the Houses deal with. I enjoyed the secondary characters and the Marchand/Mckenzie feud plus murder mystery.
The one thing I have notice in the books and shorts is that Ethan always calls Merit by Sentinel. This is getting to me. It makes me wonder/question about their relationship. I can’t decide if they are a couple or if they are Master and Sentinel. Is it his way of putting Merit in her place? Aren’t they supposed to be more of a couple and on equal ground.. Hmmm?
As things go Lucky Break was a nice enjoyable short to read.
