They call me Hero.
I defend.
I protect.
I ask for nothing in return, and that makes me good.
Doesn’t it?

That which makes me the ultimate predator also feeds dark impulses I’ve learned to control—until I bring her too close. For years I’ve watched her from afar, but what started out as duty has become obsession.

Cataline Ford
I work hard.
I play by the rules.
I’m content.
My scars are quiet and invisible, and that keeps me hidden.
Doesn’t it?

One fateful walk home, I’m taken by someone I didn’t know I should fear. Captive and afraid, nobody will tell me why I’m confined to this hauntingly beautiful mansion. I’m given everything; I have nothing. He takes what he needs from me, and for that I hate him. But I might have loved him once.

And just because you’re reading this doesn’t mean I survive him.

"Escape is now her singular obsession, the need for it all but physiological. But freedom is the only thing I can't give her, because I have an obsession of my own: her safety. Or, maybe now, just her." 

HERO is a dual POV, standalone erotic novel. WARNING: meant for a mature audience due to dark themes including non- or dubious-consent.

Super heroes, Mexican drug cartels, and a girl held in captivity. This book had it all. Hero is about as original as you can get. It takes place in New Rhone which is not unlike Batman’s Gotham City. It’s full of crime that the police can’t get under control. In comes Hero, a mask wearing vigilante who has taken on the task of cleaning up the city.

Cataline, the female lead, is a shy, quiet, naive 22 yr. old. She’s a virgin waiting to fall in love. While walking home from work one night she is taken. When she finally comes face to face with her captor, she is shocked to learn who it is. The very man who she had a crush on is the man who kidnapped her.

While I liked this book, there were things that kept me from loving it. Some things just didn’t feel believable to me. This wasn’t really a dark book, but it did have a few dark moments. I definitely give this author an A for effort. The originality of the story kept me reading.
