The Boudreaux Series--Sexy. Intriguing. Easy.

Sometimes the past is better left behind you...

Lena Turner has spent her life as the outsider. Thanks to her extraordinary gifts, she's learned to be independent--especially when it comes to men. She's content to live her life in New Orleans as a schoolteacher, dating casually and dedicated to her small family. Long term is not part of her plan.

Sometimes the past catches up with you...

Leaving Lena behind to pursue his career was the most difficult thing Mason Coulter ever did. He told himself that it was for the best, had even convinced himself that he had only Lena's best interests in mind. But now, after six long years, he's back in New Orleans to settle his late eccentric aunt's estate. All he has to do is get in and out of the city without submitting to the need to see Lena. But to Mason's dismay, his aunt made other plans.

And sometimes the future and the past collide...

Having Mason walk back into her life is something Lena never saw coming. She could refuse to help him, but she's never been good at telling Mason no. So she'll do what she can to get the estate settled and Mason out of her life for good.

At least, that's the plan. But Mason has plans of his own...

## Didn't care for this book. I have loved all of Kristen's books so far, but this one disappointed me. Several things bothered me: first of all, the way the hero left the heroine six years prior was cowardly. Instead of telling her he had an amazing job opportunity, he just took off. Never said good-bye, never answered her calls, never explained why he disappeared. He even visited her town many times over the six years but never went to see the heroine to explain. When he finally does seek her out, it's not because he wants to. He was forced to so he could claim his inheritance. Why on Earth Lena agreed to go with him after all the hurt he caused her is beyond my comprehension. I would've told him to take a long walk off a short pier. Which brings me to another issue I had. I detest instant forgiveness! Ridiculous, jumping right back into his bed. The dead aunt practically forced them to be together. Won't be reading again. 85 pages.

Cute to see a little window into the Fusion series, but don’t waste the 3 bucks. A death of an eccentric aunt leads to a cross country treasure hunt.... with no warmth or time to develop character profile.

Great story, one inaccuracy. In New Mexico they did eat text mex. It's completely different and known as New Mexican food. Other than this, it's a good story

Really Ms. Proby? Mayan burials in Chile? Seriously? A little research is in order, please. Not even an elementary school student makes this mistake. Add to it the fact that this book is not in sync with the others in the Boudreaux Series. Boring and hard to believe.

While we're all waiting for the sixth and final book in her Boudreaux series, Kristen Proby was nice enough to give us a little something extra to sink our teeth into. In the 5th book in the series, Easy Magic, we got to know side character Lena pretty well. She was the best friend of main character Mallory, and with her own set of otherworldly abilities, she piqued my interest and made me yearn for a HEA of her own. Maybe Kristen Proby has some scary good intuition herself, because she has given we fans what we wanted. Six years ago, Lena's heart was broken when the man she loved left without an explanation. Now Mason Coulter is back, and he needs her help. As much as all the jilted women out there would love to shove something like that in their former lover's face, that's not Lena. She is compassionate and smart and desperate for a summertime adventure. So, when Mason tells her that his deceased aunt's final request is that the two of them go on a treasure hunt together, and only then will Mason inherit her estate, Lena agrees. I love second chance romances. And I love road trips. Easy Fortune brings those two tropes together and creates a sweet, poignant, sexy novella that ended up being perfect all around. Following a set of clues, Mason and Lena fly and drive to various destinations around the country. The places that they visit are now places I want to visit, as they sound so cool and are experiences that are absolutely one-of-a-kind. The best part is the whole reason why Mason's aunt chose those places. And when you read that part of the story, I dare you not to feel all the things. As far as Mason's and Lena's relationship, even as their shared experiences draw them together, Lena remains wary and cautious since their respective professions will continue to make it difficult for them to be together. I loved that Easy Fortune was in dual POV, because getting Mason's thoughts as to her reticence and his own ideas on the future was really good reading. It doesn't matter that this novella was a pretty short one - Kristen Proby's storytelling cred remain strong. I could accurately say that I would've loved more time with Mason and Lena, but honestly, I usually feel that way after a good story, regardless of length. There's a great lead-up to the main part of the story, good sexual tension, REALLY good fulfillment of that tension, and even some awesome conflict and resolution - all in a neat little package.
