Fairy Allegro Romani is attempting to cross the street when, half way to the safety of the sidewalk on the other side, an out of control van is heading straight for Alli.  Tackled and rolled out of harm’s way, Alli is saved by a bear-shifter named Michael Lakkis.  Lying with a dazed Alli beneath him, Michael comes to a decision to protect, as well as seduce, Alli in the very near future.  

Lucky is a well written romantic comedy.  The setting is Putman County, Wisconsin.  The storyline is heartwarming, with a hint of turmoil and a dash of sensual lovemaking.  The amusing characters are creditable.  Banished from his fairies’ home four years ago because he is gay, Alli knew the risk of living on earth, yet he had no other choice.  Being a rare breed of fairies, Alli is resigned to living a lonely life.  However, in a town filled with paranormals, Alli is merely accepted as the resident klutz.  A shy, tongue-tied, hide-in-the-corner florist, Alli’s out of control magic is capable of producing more disaster than a nuclear bomb.  On the other hand, Alli’s magic works wonders on plants, making Alli’s floral business a real benefit to the community.   

Michael is a small, compact, mild-mannered bear shifter who moved into a cabin outside of town so his bear side could enjoy the open spaces of nature.  Michael’s sunny disposition charms most of the residents, once they realize Michael is sincere about his feelings for Alli as well as determined to protect the loveable fairy.  Another reason Michael chose to move is to get away from his very loving, over bearing family.  Michael has two older brothers that feel it is their duty to monitor Michael via phone calls on a daily basis, in addition to meeting any potentially serious love interest Michael may have.   K. M. Mahoney has created a fantastic, humorous and especially enjoyable saga.
