OVERRIDE

So Damn Lucky

Lucky O’Toole—Head of Customer Relations at The Babylon, premier mega-resort on the Vegas Strip—thinks it’s just another night in Las Vegas. But then a magician pulls a disappearing act, right under Lucky’s nose. Is it a stunt? Or something worse?

While Lucky chases leads, someone is trying to put her off the scent. As if this wasn’t enough to ruin her day, Lucky’s relationship with The Big Boss is coming to a head—past hurts can no longer be denied. Of course, she is already on shaky emotional ground: Teddie, her live-in, has been touring with a young and lovely pop star. Paxton Dane, former coworker and would-be suitor, is still circling, hoping to find a chink in the armor of Lucky’s resolve. And then, there’s this French chef, who is proving to be too hot to handle….

Las Vegas expert Deborah Coonts thrills again with this third installment in her dazzling series focused on casino “fixer” Lucky O’Toole.

"Lucky's the kind of gal who will make any heart beat faster."
--Kirkus Reviews on So Damn Lucky

—Library Journal, starred review on Lucky Stiff

“Coonts covers Sin City territory with a dash of CSI and Janet Evanovich in her second glitzy, lighthearted novel.”
—Publishers Weekly on Lucky Stiff

“Deliciously raunchy, with humorous takes on sexual proclivities, Vegas glitz and love, though Agatha Christie is probably spinning in her grave.”
—Kirkus Reviews on Wanna Get Lucky?

“This is chick-lit gone wild and sexy, lightly wrapped in mystery and tied up with a brilliantly flashing neon bow.... Wanna Get Lucky? hits the proverbial jackpot.”
—Booklist

“Funny, fast-paced, exuberant and brilliantly realized.”
—Susan Wiggs, New York Times bestselling author, on Wanna Get Lucky?
