Overview

LUCKY...IN LOVE?

An unlikely state of affairs. For Navy SEAL Lucky O'Donlon was the original love-'em-and-leave-'em guy. Used to women swooning at his feet. So how could it be that the frustratingly attractive journalist Sydney Jameson had nothing to offer him but one very cold shoulder?

Well, two could play at this game. But first things first--he and Sydney had a job to do....

Meet the Author

Suzanne Brockmann is the award-winning, bestselling author of more than 20 category romances. Her first book was released in 1993, and since then, she's received 17 different awards, including Best Series Romance of 1996, a 1997 Career Achievement Award and 11 different W.I.S.H. Awards for creating completely irresistible romantic heroes, all from Romantic Times Magazine. Her books have appeared on the USA Today Bestseller List, the Waldenbooks Romance List and on the keeper shelves of romance readers everywhere.

Suzanne lives near Boston with her husband, a lawyer, and two children, both professional actors. When Suzanne isn't writing, she's busy making music. Formerly the lead singer and songwriter for an original Boston rock band, she is now vocal arranger, director, and lead alto of the eight-voice a cappella group Serious Fun.

Suzanne is also one of the founders and volunteer organizers of Natick's Appalachian Benefit Coffeehouse, raising money for the Cabell/Lincoln Country Workcamp, which rebuilds housing for the poor, elderly and disabled in West Virginia.

Biography

Although Suzanne Brockmann can't remember a time when she wasn't scribbling something (one of her earliest masterpieces was an action-packed radio play called "Mice on Mars"), she didn't begin to write seriously until she was married with young children. She spent several years trying to break into the super-competitive field of screenwriting before deciding to try her hand at genre fiction; and, it was only after months of intensive research that she finally homed in on Romance. In June of 1992, she sat down to write her first book. By year's end, she had completed ten manuscripts, and in August of 1993, she sold her first book, the contemporary romance Future Perfect.

Brockmann's first novels were stand-alones. But as her career progressed, she noticed that romance mini-series, with their opportunities for character development and intersecting story lines, had become extremely popular. Seeking to increase her readership, she decided to write a mini-series of her own. She found her "hook" in a magazine article on Navy SEALs and, in 1996, she released Prince Joe, the first novel in her Tall, Dark and Dangerous series. The alpha males of Brockmann's fictional SEAL Team 10 proved to be the perfect romantic heroes, and the series was an immediate hit with readers. Four years later, she launched a second series of military/romantic thrillers centered on the friendships, romances, and working relationships among a team of Navy SEALS and members of an elite security agency called Troubleshooters, Inc. Starting with The Unsung Hero in 2000, the Troubleshooters books have catapulted the author to the top of the charts.

Brockmann is known in the industry as a risk-taker, having written stories around such sensitive topics as interracial romance and homosexuality, In 2004, she garnered attention for her eighth Troubleshooters novel, Hot Target, which involved one of her most popular recurring characters, openly gay FBI agent Jules Cassidy, in a romantic subplot. Brockman, who dedicated the book to her gay son Jason, was not sure how readers would respond. To her surprise, the reaction from gay and straight alike proved positive. She stated on her website: "I love the fact that the world I've created in my books -- a diverse American world filled with the same variety of people who live in my urban American neighborhood -- has been so enthusiastically embraced by readers."

Brockmann's distinctive literary blend has come in for its fair share of praise. Writing in the Chicago Tribune, veteran Booklist reviewer John Charles stated: "Brockmann strikes the perfect balance between white-knuckle suspense and richly emotional romance." And USA Today has called her "[t]he reigning queen of militaray suspense." As further proof of her mainstream appeal, she remains one of a handful of Romance novelists to have made the leap from mass market paperback to hardcover.

Good To Know

In an interview with the online magazine All About Romance, Brockmann says: "I started reading when I was three (my first 'real' book was Beverly Cleary's Here Comes the Bus -- I remember this because no one believed that I was really reading it and I got really upset when my older sister took it back to the school library before I'd finished it!)."

A serious history buff from her youth, Brockmann has read widely on WWII and has been known to incorporate stories from that era into the books of her Troubleshooters series.

Brockmann loves music. She attended Boston University as a film major with a minor in creative writing but dropped out to perform with a rock and roll band. She also sang with and served as music director for a Boston-based a cappella group called "Serious Fun" and produced its first and only CD in 1998.

Brockman is married to novelist Ed Gaffney.

The mother of an openly gay son , Brockmann is a proud member of PFLAG (Parents, Families & Friends of Lesbians & Gays).

In her writing, Brockmann employs a device she calls Deep Point of View. She explains it in an interview with the online writers' journal Writers Write: "In my books, I use subjective point of view, but I'm not satisfied with merely showing the reader what that camera sees from its perch atop a character's head. I bring the camera down, inside of that character's head, so we see the world through that character's eyes. We hear things through his ears. We smell what he smells, feel what he feels, think what he think. With deep POV, I write using words that that character would use. I tell the story with that character's voice."

    more from this reviewer

    One of my favorites--and I didn't even like Lucky much in the other books!

    Loved, loved, loved this one! Navy SEAL Luke "Lucky" O'Donlan has been swaggering through nearly all of the Tall, Dark, and Dangerous books, doing his SEAL team ten stuff with aplomb and loving and leaving women at the speed of light. He seemed like a great team member, a fantastic friend, and a true serial dater. He loved himself so much that the readers didn't have to (Though we'd probably pay to see him leave his pool after a nice, long swim. Yum.) Throughout the other books, he seemed a little too perfect, though--as Sydney refers to him in her head within miliseconds of meeting him (and accidentially out loud, about an hour or so later), he's Navy Ken. In this book, though, he gets real. And Sydney--finally--gets Lucky. Well-written suspense, absolutely adorable romance.

    I liked Get Lucky the best of all the books in the Tall, Dark an

    I liked Get Lucky the best of all the books in the Tall, Dark and Dangerous series. Luke (Lucky) is a Navy SEAL and a player who has never had a problem getting any beautiful, young woman for a one night stand or a few nights, at most.  When he meets a journalist, Sydney, he expects her to fall for his charms like all the other women but is surprised when she turns him down. That makes Luke want her even more but Sydney is not playing his game.

    This is a wonderfully written book with a story line that is easy to get wrapped up in. I felt so many emotions while reading that I didn't want to put it down. I love stories about SEALs and Luke was great in this book even though he was like a Ken doll - gorgeous and plastic (according to Sydney). 

    This was a light, easy read and would recommend it.

    I Also Recommend:

    Great storytelling

    This is a romance classic where the uber-good looking guy has to figure out it will take more than his winning smile to get the girl.

    Brockmann does it again

    I enjoy all of Suzanne Brockmann's Tall, Dark and Dangerous books. It was fun seeing Lucky O'Donlan being not so lucky when it came to love.

    Good series romance to read over and over

    Ironically, Lucky and Syd are the least believable characters. The rest of the story is great! Consider this part of a series and it will be more enjoyable than as a stand-alone romance.

    Amazing as usual!

    I read this one completely out of order... odd to see characters I've already read the books for single again. Loved it, just as I always do.

    Why is this book so expensive?

    I was just wondering if anyone new why this Harlequin paperback book from 2000 is so expensive? Is it a special edition? I love all Suzanne Brockmann and have gotten even her newest one for much cheaper.
