Lucky in Love Blog Hop – Love is about Luck, not Fate

Don’t you have that friend, the nice looking, smart, funny one who is alone. And not by choice. The one you know would be a perfect fit for someone, if only she could find him? I have a few of those friends, and they have convinced me that they haven’t been lucky enough to find a match for themselves. 

I think love is about luck, not fate. In a lot of romances I read, it seems the authors are trying to convince me that the characters are made for each other. That they could only be happy with one another. But, I think finding love is about luck. Any person, I think, could live happily ever after with two, three, maybe twenty other people on earth. And whether you ever find those two or thirty people, is the luck part.


In my December release, Puppy Love. Luck is in play. Sophie & Ryan meet when they rescue a dog from certain death on the Hollywood Freeway. I don’t think these two would have met any other way, and am glad they found each other in the way they did. Otherwise they may have never found their Happy Ever After.

More about Puppy Love: There are only two things Sophie Reid doesn’t do: lawyers and sex. When sexy, lawyer Ryan Becker stumbles into her life, her first two thoughts are “no,” and “definitely no.” After Sophie and Ryan rescue a dog from certain death on the Hollywood Freeway, they share one smoldering kiss. Sophie knows a potential train wreck when she sees it and leaves the dog and Ryan at the pound knowing she’ll never see either of them again.

Poor kid turned corporate attorney, Ryan vowed he’d get an education, succeed, and be welcomed in the front door of the most stately homes in Beverly Hills. Now that his career is on an upward trajectory, he is ready to settle down. Unfortunately, the women he has been meeting haven’t set his heart racing. Enter: Sophie.

A master of persuasion by profession, Ryan convinces Sophie to pursue their undeniable mutual attraction. But Ryan’s quest to be a success at the very occupation she reviles rankles her.

When a Hollywood union strikes, Ryan and Sophie find themselves on opposite sides of the bargaining table. Can their sparks in the bedroom overcome their standoff in the boardroom?

Do you think true love is Luck or Fate?
