On one night at a poker game, Cal hits the jackpot and wins a huge sum that was on the table including the deeds to a particular ranch. They move out with luck to spend his fortune as he really treasures the lady. However, as everything that had been earned dwindles, Luck walks out of his life leaving him broke and desperate with only a half interest from the ranch that he won the deeds.

Lily McCord is a widow who is trying to save her family home from her treacherous brother. She lives in a desperate situation trying to keep her family and worse of all after her reckless brother gambles all that was left. The ranch was the only source of income for her, and now it has been bet off, and she has to share it with cal.

These are two individuals who are in distress, and each of them is trying to make ends meet as their lives are on edge. She has to merge with Cal without getting drawn in emotionally as Cal’s heart is far away and his only purpose is put himself up on his feet after all that he had is wasted with lucky.

It is a fight for Lilly as she struggles to keep safe the ranch and her heart which is gradually getting attracted to cal.

On one occasion, lily’s ranch is under attack, and her only help is cal. He goes to help her, but in the course of doing so, his heart becomes attracted to Lilly. He has recently suffered from hurt, and basically, he is not ready to love again as he is still in pain. He has a hard task, where he has to help the widow without getting involved emotionally, but this is almost impossible. Two broken people come together and seem fit for each other since the loss has somehow matched and love starts growing.

It is funny how these two different characters are attracted together yet each of them is fighting to protect their heart from falling in love for their various reasons. The events that follow see the once impossible things between the two happening and love grows between these two. A journey that none thought could exist starts as the circumstances with each of them brings them together.

Overall Luck of the Draw is a carefully crafted story, with romance and surprises; Pat Pritchard’s setting matches the events that follow from page to page with a simple to understand language.
