REVIEW

"a fast-paced mini-vacation for the mind"

Derek thought to avoid the 'Corwin curse' by breaking up with Gabrielle upon high school graduation. Now 14 years later, he's a divorced dad and returned to his home town. Gabrielle is now a noted author debunking myths and has come to town planning on writing a book on the Corwin curse. Will she be able to prove that there is nothing true about the curse and that she can have a future with Derek?

Mayor Mary Perkins is a descendant of the witch who cursed the Corwin men and is known for her subtle use of the curse as a tool to keep her power and position in town. Gabrielle's best friend, Sharon and fiancé Richard are being blackmailed in an attempt to remove him from running for mayor. After threats and break- ins, Derek feels that the best way to keep Gabrielle safe is for her to move in with him while she researches her book and helps her friend.

LUCKY CHARM is utter entertainment -- a fast-paced mini- vacation for the mind. The story is more a romantic romp than paranormal suspense and Ms. Phillips balances the sense of humor with funny scenes and poignancy of emotion in the darker aspects of the story. The sex scenes are tastefully adult and though somewhat predictable, the romantic finale leaves the reader with a smile. I recommend this book for the pleasure of reading and romance lovers. As this is the first of a trilogy about the Corwin men, I look forward to Mike Corwin's story (LUCKY STREAK coming June 2009)

Derek thought he could outsmart the long-standing Corwin curse by breaking up with Gabrielle, his first love— and marrying someone else. Now, divorced and broke, all he has left is his teenage daughter and a healthy respect for ancient sorcery. But then Gabrielle returns, determined to defeat the curse and rekindle their passion. But will her stubborn streak and her unwavering love be the lucky charm Derek so desperately needs?
