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.
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.

Stop dragon your feet and buy this one! (5 stars)
A sassy gemologist set on a path of thievery to save her brother who's in trouble with the mob . A shape-shifting dragon trying to build a sanctuary disguised as a luxury casino for his dwindling race in the heart of Vegas. These are the things a decadently delightful category romance with paranormal elements is made of. If you've ever wanted to read a wickedly good paranormal romance set against the backdrop of Sin City look no further.
I can admit I never quite liked Alec because I felt like he was pretty closed off but Lucy makes up for his mystery by being a heroine you can get behind. Lucy is one tough cookie in a really rotten situation. Anyone who has a sibling that's good at getting themselves into trouble and then needing rescue will really want to see if she can pull it off. But it's hard stealing from someone who you're developing feelings for and Lucy's not happy that she's stuck bailing her brother out yet again.
While LUCK OF THE DRAGON is category length there's a lot of story packed in and I was really excited by the world that Scott has built for the series. The secondary characters pepper the plot with just enough face time to make you want more and the villain is dastardly enough to make escaping his grasp satisfying.
This is just one of those perfect reads for a weekend in if you love a glitzy setting, intense danger, scorching love scenes, and a fated mates romance that'll leave you craving more!
