Four pretty hot romantic suspense stories, with varying degrees of heat, but all featuring alpha protectors...

Hannah's Luck by Lora Leigh is an offshoot of the book Wild Card and features 37-year-old widower Sheriff Rick Grayson. In "Wild Card", his faithless wife Sienna was involved with the Black Collar Militia--a white supremicist group that targeted Mexican illegal aliens. Rick feels all kinds of guilt that she played him and used info from his office to keep her group and its activities ali
4 stars – Romantic Suspense/Anthology

Hannah’s Luck is a pretty typical, formulaic story by Lora Leigh...with a cold, gruff, horny alpha cop frustrated by his rampant lust for a sweet kindergarten teacher, so he treats her like crap and pushes her away. But then of course, when burglars break in and vandalize her home, he comes charging to the rescue and after one explosive kiss demands her total submission. This is a verrry hot, borderline erotic, story, which I love, but the hero was a jerk and

Hannah’s Luck by Lora Leigh
Two years ago, Rick Greyson’s wife was murdered, but he didn’t shed any tears. His wife was mixed up in a terrorist drug group and Rick is just thankful his son made it out alive. He has kept to himself since, concentrating on his son and his job as sheriff. He has always had an eye on Hanna Brookes, even when he was married. Hannah is a Kindergarten teacher living by he
This rating is only for the first two stories in this anthology:

1. Hannah's Luck by Lora Leigh (Wounded Warriors, #2) was a neat short story centering on Sheriff Rick Grayson (originally in Wild Card (Elite Ops, #1) as a supporting character. Rick's wife, Sienna, was involved in the Black Collar Militia (BCM) and was killed. I can't remember if Hannah was first introduced in an earlier book, but she was the Kindergarten teacher of Rick and Sienna's son, Kent.

Recommended to jenjn79 by: bought for the LL story
Four story anthology of moderately erotic romantic suspense stories, more about romance than suspense. Which should be a given because the stories are all 80-100 pages.

Hannah's Luck by Lora Leigh

Series Note:
Leigh's website says this is the 2nd book in her "Wounded Warriors" series, connected in theme, I think, to a novella she released last year. But it has a greater connection to her "Tempting SEALs/Elite Ops" series. This novella has a pretty direct connection to Wild Card (Elite Ops #1). It

This was OK. I got it primarily for the Lora Leigh book. She obviously didn't keep track of what she had written in this story. On page Hannah, the main character, says she's 30. She's a kindergarden teacher. On one page Hannah says she had had all 3 of Mae's kids in her class. Then on another page Mae only had 1 kid and he had died in Irag several years ago. If her kid was 18 when he died, lets say 5 yrs ago, that would mean Hannah would have to have been a Kingergarden teacher at age 12. Error ...more
In Lora Leigh's Hannah’s Luck sheriff Rick Grayson has desired kindergarten teacher for four years, watching her longingly from afar, keeping his distance because of a brutal betrayal in his past. Now, someone is targeting Hannah and Rick suspects it’s all about him. And he’s determined to do anything to protect her, claim her, and make those threatening her pay.

This was a typical LL book, with a rather solid plot and loads of steam, but I simply wasn’t convinced. There was something missing, bu

I read 3 of the 4 stories in this book. I really liked the Lora Leigh story. Hot sex scenes and a decent story, considering it was a novella. 4.5 stars

It was my first time reading Red Garnier and I thought this was a sweet story. I would read more by this author. 4 stars

It was also my first time reading Lorie O'Clare and I thought this short story was very rushed. I think I would have liked it more if it had been a full length novel. Yes, the hero was super alpha, but I love stories with dominan

Shelves: insuficiente
No me disgustó pero creo que fue demasiado corto y la trama se desarrolló demasiado fácil. Como que la autora lo escribió apurada y por cumplir.
Podría haberse expandido más en el conflicto, alguna interacción de la maestra de kinder con el hijo del sheriff y definitivamente faltó un poco mucho más de drama.

Themed anthology with some good authors.

from Amz:

“Hannah’s Luck”

When burglars try to break into her home, kindergarten teacher Hannah Brookes is lucky to have Sheriff Rick Grayson on her side. Especially when their mutual attraction leads to distraction…



Police detective Zach Rivers isn’t the only man in Phoenix who’s obsessed with the beautiful Paige Avery—but he’s definitely the sexiest and, quite possibly, the most dangerous…

My favorite story in this book (and the reason I read this) was Hannah's Luck by Lora Leigh, which was pretty good, Restless and Yours was not bad, the other 2 I didn't really care for.

I personally like romance without all the graphic sex. If you like sex scenes, this book may be for you. The third story was actually an interesting read.

This book just really dragged along for me. Which is really unusual for a book of short stories. It's not good when a short story seems way too long. Thought it was boring.

I bought this book for the Elite Ops novella but stayed for the quick and dirty reads the anthology provided. Hannah and Rick's story is a too-brief look into the life of Sheriff Grayson from the book Wild Card. A really great story that I wished could go on because I love epilogues. The other story I loved in this book was about Zach and Paige. A really great character introduction that had me wanting more! The other two stories are good but I liked these two more.

Kindergarten teacher Hanna and Sheriff Rick... Rick's wife was a devious, evil woman - the local militia's whore & a crack head... she would snoop (and a the end of the story we find out withthe help of Rick's secretary) and give tips to the militia... and when a woman is kidnapped, Rick & special forces face the militia, and Rick is forced to shoot his wife to death - though it is hidden from the public... Rick has been attracted to Hannah for years - even when
This was a great book. I would rate it a 4 1/2 stars but that's not on the scale so I'll move it up to a 5 stars. I would recommend this book if you like action,sex, suspense, sex, mystery, and more sex. It contained four stories in all. First story "Hannah's Luck" by Lora Leigh was excellent! A 5 star story, it's #4.5 in the Elite Ops series. It was emotionally and sexually charged from the beginning. Leigh did a great job in playing the story out in about 83 pages and wrapping it up nicely. I ...more

It's been too long since I finished this book to leave a decent review. I'm just jotting some notes that might trigger my memory later. I do recall all the stories involving a good bit of steam and a fair bit of mystery.

Wow. I'm really glad I didn't buy this book, it was one I happened to pick up at the library. The stories are short. Like, real short. Four in this book. Which means the authors were not only cramped in their style, they really had to work fast and it didn't make for good reading. I ended up skimming most of the stories. I'm not going to count any of these authors out by I'm also not going to look for them on purpose.

This story was a pleasant surprise and welcomed treat. I didn't think that we would get to see Rick Grayson get a HEA after the betrayal of his wife in Wild Card. I guess the story wasn't quite finished though. I like the character of Rick Grayson. He is a private,, honorable, and compassionate man. He was faithful to his wife and he loves his son. I would have like to know why Sienna married Rick it was obvious that she didn't love him or their son. So what was the appeal

This was an ok anthology. A little hit or miss. It felt like parts of the story were missing for some of them.
Lora Leigh did her usual. I'm not familiar with the characters so I may not have read the books they previously appeared in. Of all the suspenseful elements, hers was the out of left field one for me. Strange culprit I guess. I think I prefer her Breed stories over any of her other series.
Red Garnier was a new author for me but I will check out other books by her. Interesting who done

I loved this anthology from the first novella to the last. Lora Leigh's Elite Ops, once again, phenomenal. The characters had undeniable chemistry and the story was good.

Red Garnier’s Reckless and Yours had me near tears the whole way through. The story itself had a great mystery but the real page-turner is the couple. Emotionally gripping beyond reasoning, I just couldn’t put it down. I think this may have been my favorite of the four.

Alexis Grant’s Tempt Me, was a great lead in to her Men of D
