Review: The Lawyer’s Luck by Piper Huguley (2014)

Home to Milford College, Prequel

Heat Factor: Not a “hot” book – more of a tender book.

Character Chemistry: Kind of an “us against the world” type love.

Plot: Realie is tantalizingly close to freedom in Canada, but is accidentally shot when she attempts to steal a horse. Lawrence, an upstanding Miami Indian/Negro man and aspiring laywer, is determined to heal and help Realie after accidentally shooting her. These two sacrifice and take great chances to build a life together, and it’s both heartbreaking and beautiful as they strive for their dreams.

Overall: This is a remarkably balanced historical romance. Huguley somehow manages to hold to the truth of history and weave a story of love and commitment between Realie and Lawrence, which is perhaps easier said than done when “happily ever after” can’t ever mean truly “free” for Realie.

Heat Factor: Short and Steamy.

Character Chemistry: These guys were star-crossed hook-ups.

Plot: College student Danny comes home for Christmas to discover his father’s young colleague is staying for the holidays…and he’s a dreamboat
