Title: Luck of the Dragon
Series: Las Vegas Dragons bk 1
Author: Susannah Scott
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Luciana de Luca has a PhD in sass and gemology–and a problem. Her twin brother’s gambling debts have gotten out of hand, and a mob enforcer is blackmailing her to rob the latest, greatest mega-casino on the Strip. Although Lucy has worked her whole life to get away from her family’s grifter past, to save her brother, she dons three-inch heels and a sluts-r-us dress and struts into Alec’s Gerald’s casino, determined to put her long-forgotten thieving ways to the test again.
Alec Gerald, a shape-shifting dragon, has built the Crown Jewel casino to provide sanctuary for his people amongst the flash and awe of Las Vegas. Unfortunately, the sexy little thief trying to rob his gem exhibit turns out to be his mate, and he must woo her before he loses his dragon form forever. With enemies in every corner, and the all-important mating ceremony looming, Alec and Lucy must learn to trust each other, before time runs out for Alec and the rest of the dragons.
This was the first book I’ve read by Susannah Scott but it definitely won’t be my last. When I was first asked to read and review Luck of the Dragon I was a bit hesitant because I’m not much into the Urban Fantasy genre but I’m sure glad I took the opportunity.
Who would have thought that shape shifting dragons could be so intriguing and bring you to tears. Luciana de Luca was not a woman to mess with. She was a woman of class and a woman who would do anything to protect her twin brother but she never saw Alec Gerald coming. She was hired to appraise the jewels that the owner of the Crown Jewel casino but her true job was to get the tools need for those blackmailing her to save her brother to be able to rob the Crown Jewel.
Alec Gerald was an enigma himself so when prepared a grand opening for the Crown Jewel that was beyond spectacular and wowed those in attendance with the flying dragons little did they know that one of those dragons was none other than Alec Gerald.
Alec knew from the moment he laid eyes on Luciana de Luca that she was his soul mate which is not common for a dragon and a human but will he be able to forgive her betrayal? Will Luciana be able to choose Alec over her brother? I’ll leave those answers for you to find out. I highly recommend you read Luck of the Dragon because you’re in for a real treat.
I give Luck of a Dragon an A.
