Lucky in Love–When Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Lucky in Love

You’ve heard the saying “When Irish Eyes are smiling, they’re up to something.” That’s me. I’m part Irish, and it took me a while, but growing up I finally realized my mother could always tell when I was about to pull some mischief just by the look in my eyes. Darn it. 🙂

So when I tell you I love St. Patrick’s Day, you’ll know I come by it honestly. In my house growing up, it wasn’t about wearing green on March 17th. It was about eating corned beef and cabbage and potatoes for dinner. It’s not such an easy dish to make, so we only got to eat it once a year. And oh, do I love corned beef!

I don’t recall ever reading a romance about St. Patrick’s Day, but when you think of ‘lucky in love,’ isn’t that how every romance ends? (One would hope.) In my erotic paranormal romance novel Protecting the Pack, not one, not two, but three people get lucky.

All of a sudden, Ben smelled the most amazing smell, like sex and chocolate and first-thing-in-the-morning coffee, only better. He’d heard about this. There was only one thing it could be.

He’d found his mates.

Ben’s gaze swung to the bar as though pulled there. Chris sat on a stool, eyes wide, staring at him. No wonder Ben had felt comfortable talking with Chris. His mate. His fricking mate.

Chris looked at Dana and said something to her. As far away as he was, Ben could only imagine what he was saying.

She looked confused.

As Chris stood, he shook his head, still speaking. Then he left Dana behind and plowed his way through the packed room to get to Ben.

They clasped arms, holding onto each other at the elbows and staring into each other’s eyes. The smell was so much stronger now. Ben had no doubt. He’d spend the rest of his life with this man.

And with their female.

“Where is she?” Ben said. He swung to look at the room, one hand still gripping Chris’ arm. All he saw was wolves, wall-to-wall.

“There couldn’t be a worse situation to try and find somebody,” Chris said.

“We just need to follow our noses.” Ben stepped forward, pushing through a group of people to get to the other side, and Chris followed him. Excitement jumped in Ben’s stomach.

The scent grew. Ahead of them, someone was pushing through the crowd, coming in their direction. Someone else stepped aside, and a body ran into Ben. It was her.


The air left his lungs. She was so beautiful. Everything he’d ever wanted. He reached for her.

Alex’s eyes were wide. “No,” she said. “No, this isn’t happening.” She dove into the crowd toward the door.


In an otherwise modern world where werewolves mate in triads, one threesome faces overwhelming obstacles to everlasting love.

Chris leads a pack of werewolves threatened by a rival group. Alexandra follows love away from home and into trouble. Ben seeks a new home but cannot escape the ghosts of his past. The mating lust pulls Chris, Ben and Alexandra together, flooding them with the desire to mark each other and seal their bond. But their differences combine with outside forces to pull them apart, possibly forever. Their future, their love, and even their lives hang in the balance.

    What a great giveaway hop! I have yet to be lucky in love but I’m working on it. My favorite love book is “Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon. Jamie Fraser is amazing and beautiful. I enjoy St. Patty’s Day and this year I’m spending it with my best friend. We’re going to two Irish Pubs and also some dance clubs. I am also wearing green and am not a fan of getting pinched. I’m not Irish either, but many people think I am because my hair is red, my eyes green and my name is Meghan, but I’m not at all. I won’t be telling anybody that, however… let them believe I’m Irish.
    Thanks for the giveaway!
