She needs a fake fiance and I’m just the guy to play the part.
I moved from Ireland to New York City to pursue a career in acting.
My family has a lot of money, but I want to make it on my own.
One day I’m at Starbucks, minding my own business, studying for an audition.
Suddenly a beautiful, curvy stranger heads straight to my table.
Her ex cheated on her with her best friend, she says.
And they’ve both just entered the coffee shop!
Please pretend to be my boyfriend so I don’t seem so pathetic, she asks.
Well, I’m an actor, aren’t I?
So, how can I resist the pleading request from those pretty hazel eyes that match her name?
I’ll do her one better- I pretend to be her fiance.
Soon, we’re caught in a game of one up-manship with her snotty ex friend.
Like all my acting gigs, I play this one very well.
It turns out that Hazel brings me luck- and I do the same for her.
But this is all just pretend, right?
We’re not really going to get married on St. Patrick’s Day like we keep telling everyone, are we?
Maybe I’m playing the role a bit too well, because I find myself believing it’s real.
Lucky Charm is a full length standalone novel with no cheating and no cliffhangers, but with a very happy St. Patrick’s Day and ever after, and a whole bunch of Irish flavored steam
