Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
This week the closest book is Luck of the Dragon by Susannah Scott. I got this PDF from Entangled Publishing. The book was released on June 24. Here is the description of this paranormal romance:
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.Beginning:
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.
When had thigh-highs become required jewel-heist garb.Friday 56:
“Lucy,” Gino yelled from the door. “I’ve got your brother in here. You’ll want to come on now.” Gino’s words were courtliness held up by threat.
