The newest erotic romance from bestselling author Opal Carew, Stroke of Luck.

Good things do come in threes.

April Smith’s luxurious Las Vegas wedding crashed and burned when her wealthy fiancé cheated on her and left her with a hotel bill that costs more than she makes in a year. Even more humiliating, her college ex-boyfriend Quinn Taylor has come to her rescue and bailed her out. They didn’t part on the best of terms and never expected to see one another again.

For Quinn, April was the one who got away and despite the heartache she caused him, he’s never gotten over her. Not wanting to be in his debt, April makes Quinn a tempting offer: she’ll spend the next month with him during his Vegas vacation, fulfilling his fantasies. Being with April has always been Quinn’s number one fantasy, and next on the list is sharing a woman with his best friend and business partner, Austin Wright. Since he can see an undeniable attraction between April and Austin, he makes that a condition of their deal, too.

Enjoying the attention and affection from two hot and handsome men, April gives in to her desires to be with both of them. But with those desires comes a growing love that she fears may force her to choose between Quinn and Austin—or lose them both.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly


Equal parts tender and transgressive, this erotic romance from Carew (X Marks the Spot) explores a three-way relationship. All former foster child April Smith has ever wanted is to feel safe, secure, and loved, leading her into an ill-advised relationship with wealthy Maurice Dubois. When April catches Maurice having sex with another woman the night before their Las Vegas wedding, she calls off their engagement, leading Maurice to vindictively stick her with their massive hotel bill and cancel all her credit cards. As fate would have it, April’s college boyfriend Quinn Taylor and his business partner, Austin Wright, are staying at the same hotel and witness April’s distress. Quinn pays April’s bill with no hesitation and no demands, but April’s pride leaves her determined to pay him back. She has no money, but offers a no-strings-attached, monthlong sexual relationship in payment. Quinn agrees—then ups the ante by telling April he plans to “share her” with Austin. Though some readers will be turned off by Quinn’s callous treatment of April spurred by his lingering heartbreak from college, kind, empathetic Austin provides a welcome foil as love rapidly kindles between April and both men. Carew offers plentiful thrills for readers looking for spicy romance that doesn’t leave the characters at the bedroom door. (Dec.)
