About the Author

SUSANNAH SCOTT lives in the Missouri Ozarks and is the lone female in a very loud household of males ranging in age from 4 to 40. While she jokes that the extreme levels of testosterone inspired her to write romance, it is really the love of creating an excellent story, and the occasional dreams of twenty-foot dragons, that wake her and send her to the laptop before the chaos of daily life ensues. Susannah loves to hear from her readers. Please visit her website at susannahscottbooks.com or follow her as Susannah Scott on Facebook and @Susannah_Scott on Twitter.

While following the comforting arc of a good romance novel, "Luck of The Dragon" is refreshingly original. The main characters, Lucy and Alec, are easy to become absorbed with - great chemistry and an enticing combination of light/dark personalities -Scott does a clever job keeping the age-old tale of falling in love fresh and her writing moves quickly and is action packed.

To be honest, though, the secondary characters were the real hook for me - particularly Alec's lieutenants, who I found myself thinking about even when I wasn't reading. What happens to this complex and dynamic group? Looking forward to more reading - hopefully this will be a series.

Finally, the dragon thing. A longstanding vampire fan myself, I was skeptical that any writer could bring "sexy" to a creature that I associate with reptiles to some extent. Hats off to Susannah Scott, the mental leap has been made. Alec is seriously one sexy beast.

Very brief synopsis - Lucy is determined to help her twin brother Joey out of yet another jam caused by his gambling habit. The help involves setting up the heist of some jewels from Alec, a Las Vegas casino owner. Who, by the way, happens to be a dragon. And it seems Lucy is his destined mate. And the guy who is harassing Joey to steal the jewels is Alec's arch enemy. Tangled web, much?

I liked the set up. Lucy is a world renowned gemologist who has been retained to appraise Alec's collection of jewels. As per collective mythology, the dragons are attracted to treasure, to shiny, sparkly things, and to decadent wealth. To that end, Alec has erected the Crown Jewel Casino, complete with a dragon themed show. Hiding in plain sight, so to speak. The language is descriptive and concise. I like the inclusion of the accepted dragon traits, as well as the addition of some traits unique to this world.

What worked - An awful, awful lot worked. The writing was crisp, the plot was interesting, the prose was straightforward and funny. The world building was seamless and effortless. No big info dumps, just a good weaving of this particular world's mythology into the story. There was not a lot of backstory for the dragons, but it didn't feel like I needed more information than the author provided.

Alec, king of the dragons, is as alpha as you might expect. However, he is also considerate and patient. When Lucy hurts him, he is so angry, so hurt. His pain radiates off the page. Very well done.

Great secondary characters - Anxious to see more from Darius and Mei, Lil, and Jane. I am left wondering who will get the next story? Will it be Joey, who is currently being chased down by one of the female dragons?

Luck of the Dragon is an emotional ride set in the decadence of Las Vegas. I loved how the heroine, Luciana, could be so smart yet so vulnerable. I was with her all the way, wanting to save her brother from his gambling addiction.

Alec, aka the Black Dragon, created a haven for the remaining dragons in Las Vegas. Where better to hide in plain view? Dragons can fly in high ceiling auditoriums and it's all part of the show. So clever!

But Alec is losing his dragon form and only Luciana, his destined mate, can save him. Las Vegas has never offered stakes so high.

Luck of the Dragon is gripping. Susannah Scott is one author I'm keeping on my watch list

****3.5 stars****

Part brazen minx, part dutiful businesswoman, Luciana was quite determined to follow through for her twin brother Joey when once again he'd found himself in trouble with his gambling. The fact that helping him meant returning to the life of crime she'd managed to work her way out of didn't sit well with her, but lucky for Joey she would do anything for him. Including use her PhD in gemology for access to millions in diamonds. With strong-arm Gino breathing down their necks, a dragon out to prove to Lucy that she's his mate, and old enemies determined to make a stand, this was a recipe for utter chaos that had her in way over her head.

Maybe it was just good timing on her part, or maybe fate was playing matchmaker, but when Lucy agreed to take part in robbing the massive casino, she had no idea that her destiny was entwined with that of wealthy owner Alec Gerald. Alec had been searching for his mate for so long, and he was on the verge of losing his dragon form if he didn't complete the mating ceremony soon. He knew Lucy was his, but convincing the flighty but strong-willed beauty to give in to the temptation was an uphill battle! Alec was all cocky and sultry bravado, but Lucy had a one-track mind. She was so busy trying to get her brother and herself out of danger that she didn't really see what was right in front of her: an amazing guy who wanted her for life (awwww!!). In the midst of all her scheming, Alec managed to turn her head long enough for them to share some pretty steamy moments, but Lucy needed to finally take the blinders off and really see what was going on before she lost him for good.

I struggled a bit with Joey, he was a hard character to like for awhile.
