HER KIND OF HERO
Genre: Erotic Romance, E-book
This novella is written in first person from the heroine’s point of view. Vanessa’s inner monologue is sometimes interesting, but her single-minded focus on getting Derek into bed results in repetitive thinking that may bore some readers. The story’s saving grace is Derek, the practical hero. He is reliable and responsible – not necessarily the first adjectives you might use to describe a romance hero. But the care and love that Derek shows Van is pleasant to read.
When Vanessa Bingham’s husband died in an accident two years ago, she completely lost interest in men and dating. Instead Van has channeled all of her time and attention into her friendship with her husband’s best friend Derek Lane. Recently, Van has begun to have feelings for Derek and she thinks she is ready for an intimate relationship. But when she tells Derek, he is resistant to change their relationship because he is afraid of losing her. However, when a stalker starts to threaten Van, Derek realizes that in order to keep her safe, he must declare his intentions and take a chance on their love. (Carina Press, November 2010, dl. $3.99)
