Publisher's Summary

How far will a good man go to save his home and loved ones?
Lord James Dupree must recover his family's stolen Luck, the elven talisman that has protected the Dupree lands for generations. Without the talisman, the Dupree vineyards are failing and creditors are closing in. The Luck is his only hope of saving his home and his family from poverty and ruin.
Despite his abhorrence of slavery, James wins an elven slave in a game of cards. The slave, Loren, provides the only chance to enter the Lands Between and recover the stolen Luck. Despite James's assurances and best intentions, Loren does not trust his new master and James finds it all too easy to slip into the role of slave master when Loren defies him.
As the two work together through hardship and danger, James finds himself falling in love with Loren. And when a hidden enemy moves against them, he must choose between his responsibility to his family and his own soul.

I really enjoyed this book.

What did you love best about The Stolen Luck?

The story was well thought out and the characters had a believability to them that sustained the story. There was a strength and sweetness to Loren that i really liked.


Who was your favorite character and why?

I think Loren and Devil were my favourites. Loren because he had been hurt and abused but had maintained a sense of self throughout his trauma. And Devil because he was a horse and i like horses :)


What about Charles Carr’s performance did you like?

I didn't mind it however the voice he used for James was not the voice i heard in my head. But that is just personal preference.


If you could rename The Stolen Luck, what would you call it?

The Captured Vine. A Long Ass Journey to the Land of the Fae!
Misunderstandings, Meandering, Magic and Murder! Beware the horse with the wild eye!
Watch Out, that Iron's Hot!


Any additional comments?

Felt more like "Stolen Credits"

What disappointed you about The Stolen Luck?

This is Victorian romance novel in disguise (minus the romance). James goes on and on about his conflicted emotions and guilt for lusting after the slave elf...
Logan's character is so effeminate I had to constantly remind myself the character was male.


What was most disappointing about Shawna Reppert’s story?

The basic premise of this story is challenging. It's difficult to build a romance/fantasy story around slave prostitution.


What about Charles Carr’s performance did you like?

Great job with a crap story.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Stolen Luck?

The last 10 minutes. Seriously.... I was hoping for a little hot m/m elf sex at the end to save this mess. The dialog was neither romantic or erotic.
