The true measure of a man is not in the mistakes he makes…but in how he handles those mistakes.
After leaving the Army, Zander King wants nothing more to do with being a hero. His life plan is to keep his nose clean, work hard to make his bar successful and avoid damsels in distress. Old habits died hard, though, so when a beautiful stranger walks into the bar to drink alone, his protective instincts kicked into high gear. It was a good thing too, because his was not the only eye she caught in his rough-side-of-town establishment.
When a man won't take no for an answer from her, Zander kicks him out, but he sends the woman, who doesn't belong there, packing too. Too late, he realizes his mistake in releasing the petite, vulnerable woman out into the neighborhood alone, when he finds her near death outside the bar at closing time.
Racked with guilt, Zander's conscience won't let him abandon her until he knows she'll be okay. At the hospital days later, his sleeping beauty, Jane Doe, finally wakes up, but she doesn't remember who she is or how she got there.
Zander vows to help her put the pieces of her memory back together, but would regaining her memory only put her in more danger?
A Heroes at Heart novel based loosely on the fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty.
Themes, language, and adult situations are similar to an R-rated movie. For 18+ years.
What a start to this new series!
What an excellent start to this new series! I'm a huge fan of Maryann Jordan's previous books, but this new group of men has me itching for more! The element of weaving the fairytale into the story was perfect. I loved the stoic man that Zander was and how he fell in love with Rosalie as she was asleep. The tale was well written with great characters. There is that element of suspense as there is in each of her prior books. I can't wait to see where she takes these characters!
Zander was amazing
Maryann Jordan has outdone herself again. She knows how to bring her characters to life. I fell in love with Zander in chapter one. I really enjoyed how simple he was. Just a normal man with a very caring heart. The connection between Zander & Rosalie was magical. If you are in the mood to read a heartwarming story, make sure it is this book. You will not be disappointed.
Maryann Jordan has a way of writing a story that consumes you. One that you can't put down. And in this new book a start of another series you are consumed from page one till the very last.
