Cover Reveal: The Hero She Needs

Tough. Honorable. Scarred inside and out.

Former military heroes turned loners.

These fierce protectors are unbroken heroes.

I am thrilled to bring you the cover of the first book in my brand-new romantic suspense series, Unbroken Heroes.

This series stars some tough former military heroes who once worked Ghost Ops with Vander Norcross. The best of the best of special forces, they did the toughest missions in the hardest places. Scarred and fighting their demons, they’re loners who’ve withdrawn from life. But they are always willing to help a woman in danger, and they’ll use all their deadly skills to protect the women who drag them into the light.

I hope you love the cover for THE HERO SHE NEEDS. This book stars Boone Hendrix, who you’ve caught glimpses of in the Fury Brothers, Sentinel Security, and the Billionaire Heists (along with his dog Atlas!)

Boone’s quiet existence in Vermont is turned upside down when he goes fishing…and catches a half-drowned billionaire heiress in danger.

Take a look at the cover and blurb below, and scroll down to enter my The Hero She Needs Giveaway to celebrate. I’m giving away an amazing set of signed paperbacks from some amazing romantic suspense authors.

The Hero She Needs
Unbroken Heroes #1
Release date: Thursday 7th Dec 2023

Cover Designer: Hang Le Designs
Photographer: Wander Aguiar

The last thing he expects to catch in his river is a billionaire heiress.

Loner Boone Hendrix left the military with ghosts that haunt him. He lives with his dog Atlas on a farm in Vermont. Alone. Just the way he likes it. Until he rescues a half-drowned, beautiful brunette from his river.

Gemma Newhouse is the daughter of the richest man in America, and from the abrasions on her wrists and her drugged state, she’s on the run from someone dangerous. She’s nothing like Boone expected—sweet, smart, and likes baking—and she ignites a fierce need inside him.

Being a member of a covert Ghost Ops team taught him deadly skills, and he’ll use them all to keep her safe.

Gemma can’t remember the last twenty-four hours. All she knows is that someone abducted her. Someone dangerous. Her only goal is survival and she’s used to taking care of herself. She’s a constant disappointment to her driven, successful parents. She doesn’t want a brilliant career, all she wants is to bake and make people smile.

Finding herself in Boone’s strong arms wasn’t on her plan. Nor was his rugged face, hard body, and gold-brown eyes. She sees how much he’s cut himself off from life, how he believes he’s broken.

Thrust together, she realizes this quiet hero will do anything to protect her. Despite the danger around them, they can’t resist their growing attraction, but her captors are hunting her…

And Boone is the only thing standing in their way.

PRE-ORDER: The Hero She Needs will be available for pre-order the Sunday before release day (3rd December)

AUDIOBOOK: It is going straight into audio production with narrators Aaron Shedlock and Ava Erickson. Look for the completed audio around the end of January/early February.

Excerpt from Excalibur (Sentinel Security #5) featuring Boone Hendrix (and Atlas)

He looked out the window. Killian stalked down the steps toward a man waiting beside a battered truck.

Boone Hendrix was tall, with brown hair, and an All-American look. Bram would guess he’d been the quarterback of his school football team. He had broad shoulders, long legs, and wore a red flannel shirt, jeans, and boots.

He lifted his chin and shook Killian’s hand.

“He’s a good guy,” Nick said, from the seat across the aisle. “Was a hell of a soldier.”

Bram knew Hendrix would have been special forces, and to get selected for Ghost Ops, you had to be the best of the best.

“He has a farm up here,” Nick continued, “but he does odd jobs, mostly for friends. Keeps his skills sharp. Norcross uses him occasionally.”

Bram knew these odd jobs didn’t require hammers or saws.

Shade shifted in his seat. “I’ve heard of him. Good reputation. He keeps in touch with a few of his former Ghost Ops buddies.”

“He was in New York last year to help out Remi and Maverick Rivera,” Nick added.

Bram nodded. He watched as Boone pulled a duffel bag out of the back of his truck, then opened the passenger-side door.

A large German Shepherd leaped out.

The handsome dog wasn’t just a pet. In an instant, Bram could see the animal was well-trained and fit.

  29. Carmen Della-Rocca

    Love,Love your books, story lines are absolutely fantastic. have all your books on kindle, audio, and I too am buying them in paper back, can’t wait for this new series. Love your work.

  30. I’m still stuck in the Eon Warriors phase but I have to say The Hero She Needs cover is great. It eschews the typical defocussed model-perfection and has a raw intensity the story needs. I also think the sample is excellent, showing your style to its best. Better than Sentinel/Norcross imho.

    I very much against billionaire romance and war veteran tropes are getting almost as overdone as shifters, but a cute loyal doggo, a gritty troubled loner and the right romance done in Anna Hackett style could sell it to me. 🙂 Good luck!
