Title: A Kiss for Luck
Author: Kele Moon
Genre: Science-Fiction / Erotica
Dr. Clara Evans’ life has taken a turn for the worse. With a failed marriage behind her, Clara has only a bottle of wine and a romance novel for company on New Year’s Eve while waiting for the dreadful year to end. Her lonely celebration is disrupted when her best friend Jackson Philips shows up and she couldn’t be more delighted. Tall, muscular and handsome, what’s not to love about the bighearted firefighter? It’s not until she steals a desperately needed kiss for luck at midnight that secret desires and hidden heartaches rise to the surface, igniting an inferno of passion that burns hot enough to overwhelm even the most seasoned firefighter.
Carla and Jackson are best friends from high school, secretly longing for each other, until their desire is erupted by a New Year’s Eve kiss.
Well, the story is far from satisfying. Though in Packing Heat and Mercy Bound Kele Moon successfully provides pretty complete characterizations despite the shortness of the stories, here in A Kiss for Luck it doesn’t appear. Actually, the story contains a couple of sex scenes, and an epilogue to prove that they are still together a year later.
Nothing special, no depth of characters or their background story, just a few steamy scenes.
