One Lucky Night is five interconnected novelettes by different authors. This night, that may or may not end up lucky for each of the main characters, takes place at a Boston pub called The Brazen Head. In Lucky Break by Aria Kane, childhood sweethearts Andy and Derek are accidentally reunited, thanks to a broken dishwasher. In Lucky Star by Grace Teague, The Brazen Head waitress Holly doesn’t date musicians, so why does she let singer/guitar player Cian claim her for a New Year’s Eve kiss? Lexi’s Chance by Constance Phillips introduces us to Sean and Lexi, who both are wary and resistant to love but feel drawn to one another anyway. Finally in Drink or Dare by Melinda Dozier, we watch Rachel and Killian, paramedic school classmates, discover something more than rivalry during a rousing game of ‘drink or dare.’ Each story takes place on the same night inside The Brazen Head and features a mysterious old Irish bloke handing out advice and disappearing as quickly as he appears.

One Lucky Night is like the perfect ensemble featuring several lead characters with their own stories, problems, and issues. Although each novelette is a love story, they couldn’t possibly be more different. Some of the characters have a past, like Andy and Derek, and some have been dancing around one another too long for their story to end any other way, like Lexi and Sean. One stormy night in a Boston pub invariably changes the lives of each pair, making it One Lucky Night indeed for second chances, first chances, missed opportunities, and hidden desires.
