How very apropos!

What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas… this time it follows Brandon and Caitlyn across the country and into a world of espionage and danger. The one thing that Brandon knows for sure is that he can’t afford to lose his lucky charm, Caitlyn.

Previously released as Forgotten,
by Chelle Cordero

previous reviews of Forgotten said:
“Forgotten is Hard to Forget”
“The story grabs you from the beginning”
If you like Danielle Steele and Patricia Cornwell, you will enjoy ‘Forgotten.’

So why is this story getting a heart-transplant and becoming His Lucky Charm?

It’s all in the name. If you go to and look up the name Forgotten, you get pages upon pages of titles using the word forgotten in myriad possibilities – Forgotten by Chelle Cordero actually gets listed several pages into the search which has made it difficult for readers to find the book by its title alone.

But search His Lucky Charm and it comes up FIRST!

Readers will be able to find this story with a lot more ease! (Yes, I do try to give my readers what they want)

There was a lot of discussion about Hal’s death – Did Lon kill him or was it an accident? Did/should Lon feel guilty? Did/should Paige blame Lon? How do YOU feel about Hal’s death? Do you feel literary justice was better served by his death or would have been better served by arrest?

Editorial Reviews

Forgotten is a riveting story and both my wife and I enjoyed it from the first page all the way to the last page. Ms. Cordero’s characters have depth and real personalities and were very easy to get to know through her excellent prose and superb style. Every chapter, every paragraph, and even every word appears to have been written with the sole purpose of enchanting readers and drawing us into the story. —Jason Martin, new loyal fan and KerriAnne Martin, avid Chelle Cordero fan

I read Bartlett’s Rule and couldn’t imagine another wonderful story that could match my excitement with that, but Forgotten sure accomplished the feat! Caitlyn and Brandon, along with all the other people in the book, feel like old friends now. Thank you! I can’t wait for the next Chelle Cordero novel! —Hope Marshall

Customer Review of Bartlett’s Rule from

Bartlett’s Rule, May 11, 2008
By Barbara Moroch

A fantastic read — a love story between two seemingly very different kinds of people. Between all the tribulations that get in the way of their romance, they ultimately triumph. The story is so well crafted and the characters evoke lots of emotion from the reader. The plot takes lots of twists and turns and underscores the severity of rape crimes and the lasting damage it inflicts upon its victims. I look forward to reading the author’s second novel, “Forgotten.” Its preview seems to be as captivating as this book was!
