Merit and Ethan are in desperate need of some alone time, far from the worries of Cadogan House, but trouble tends to follow wherever they go. Their attempt at a romantic getaway is quickly interrupted when one of Ethan's vampire friends shows up at their door--covered in blood and accused of killing her shifter husband.
Merit and her Master soon discover their vacation spot is far less idyllic than it appears. A centuries old quarrel between local vampires and shifters has made the town a perpetual supernatural battle zone, and this fresh blood has stirred the already volatile pot. Now, Merit and Ethan must put their passion on pause to figure out who's really responsible for the murder before all hell breaks loose...

Nice, quick little murder-mystery that Ethan and Merit unfortunately stumble upon and of course offer to help solve even though they are supposed to be on vacation. The main focus of Lucky Break is really on the Hatfield and McCoy issues between the rogue vampire clan and shifter pack in the area and how the murder affects both sides and showcases the issues that will always be a problem between the sups. Merit and Ethan are more like mediators rather than being smack dab in the middle of the problem, which actually worked for me. I still got a healthy dose of Merit’s snark, which I adore, had Methan time, which is looking to be on pretty solid ground both as a couple and as Sentinel and Master. I did miss the Ombuddies as well as Luc and Lindsey, but getting to spend a little time with Gabriel Keene is always a good time and then there’s Damien Garza. Damien may just be kicking Jeff out of the number one spot as my favorite shifter in the series, but that’s still up in the air. All in all, this was a fun little novella to tide everyone over until Dark Debt releases next month.
