Captain Walker Larson received the shock of his life when a beautiful stranger boldly walked into his office - - claiming to be his wife. His father may have bought Lacy Larson for him in a wife lottery, but Walker had no desire for a bride - - even one as tempting as the one standing before him. So he promptly sent Lacy back to Cedar Point.

Nearly three years later, Lacy is shocked when Walker shows up on her doorstep - - ordered by the military to protect his wife from a killer. Lacy wants nothing to do with the gruff soldier who once drove her away.

But despite their different lifestyles and expectations, she finds herself wondering if their marriage was a far better gamble than either of them had imagined . . . and what it it would feel like to be in his arms.

Professional Reviews

Publishers Weekly
While Thomas recently made a splash with two contemporary novels, The Widows of Wichita County and Finding Mary Blaine, it's her nearly 20 historical romances, set in her native state of Texas, that have earned her two RITA awards. This psychologically, as well as physically, action-packed tale demonstrates why. Third in her Wife Lottery series (after The Texan's Wager and When a Texan Gambles), it follows the fortunes of 15-year-old orphan Lacy Larson, youngest of a gutsy trio of pioneer women auctioned off to avoid jail after killing Zeb Whittaker, an avaricious buffalo hunter who'd attacked them. For mysterious reasons, Walker Larson, Lacy's married-by-proxy army captain hubby, doesn't want a wife, much less one his father has purchased for him. But when Zeb Whittaker turns up alive five years later, desiring revenge, the reluctant absentee groom is assigned to protect Lacy. The result is a tale with more than enough fast-paced adventure to satisfy suspense buffs. But, as always, it is Thomas's slower-paced handling of the romantic dynamics between her emotionally warm but wounded characters that is the novel's strength.

Romantic Times Book Club
"Thomas continues to demonstrate why she is one of the finest western romance writers today. Strong characters, pulse-pounding action and sizzling sexual tension are all here in great degrees."

--Kathe Robin, Romantic Times Book Club

Romance Reviews Today
"Jodi Thomas has made the concluding book of this trilogy the best one, and readers couldn't ask for a more heartwarming tale . . . A TEXAN'S LUCK will grab readers from the opening page. There's lots of adventure and more than a little romance. For a rollicking good read, A TEXAN'S LUCK will warm your heart and make it beat a little faster, too. Don't miss this terrific book!"

--Jani Brooks, Romance Reviews Today
