5 Reasons You Just Might Fall in Love with Her Forbidden Hero
Hi everyone! I’m very excited to be here today at Hesperia Loves Books to kick off my official book tour for my contemporary romance novel, Her Forbidden Hero. I really adored writing this book, especially because the hero’s character, Marco Vieri, had been in my head for almost nine months before I finally could sit down and write him. So, today, I thought I’d share five reasons why you just might fall in love with my new book!
What could be better than a tortured, tormented hero? Following a mission-gone-bad with his Special Forces team in Afghanistan, Marco Vieri is damaged on the inside and the outside. The guilt over several of his team mates’ deaths and the soul-deep disappointment over losing the only thing he ever wanted to do eat at him day and night until he’s convinced that even a close friend would think less of the man he’s become. Marco will make you ache!
Friends to Lovers
I just love stories where long-time friends discover their feelings have grown for one another. From the age of twelve, Alyssa Scott nearly grew up in Marco Vieri’s house after the death of her mother. And while Marco was primarily Alyssa’s brother’s friend, Alyssa and Marco were always close, leaving Marco with a mile-wide protective streak where she’s concerned.
Her Brother’s Best Friend
How many of you with brothers have crushed on one of their good friends? Uh huh. *winks* Well, Alyssa is no different. Even before her mom died, her brother Brady was best friends with Marco. So the three of them go way back and have shared so much together, including Marco helping Brady and Alyssa escape the consequences of their fathers’ alcoholism. The bond forged between these two young men grew even stronger in adulthood, when both entered the Army Special Forces and ended up on the same A-Team. Now, Marco’s falling for his best friend’s little sister and knows she really should be off-limits.
A Heroine with Heart
Despite everything she’s been through, Alyssa has come out the other side with her heart and her kindness and her positivity in tact. In a word, Alyssa is resilient. And from the first moment she’s reunited with Marco, she can positively see the hurt pouring out of him. As long as she’s adored him, she can’t not try to help. Alyssa is real and brave and not afraid to stand up to the very strong men in her life, and I rather adore her for that.
Non-Stop Sexual Tension
It can be so hard resisting something you want but know you really shouldn’t have. That’s how Marco feels in this book. And it can be equally difficult wanting something but fearing you’ll never get it, and that’s how Alyssa feels. All of which means Her Forbidden Hero is a freight train of unresolved sexual tension that will learn you yearning for them to just kiss already! (or, heh, maybe even more than that…), making the moment when they give in OH. SO. GOOD. LOL
So those are my five reasons you just might fall in love with Her Forbidden Hero. I hope you’ll give it a try and let me know if I was right! *grins*

You always want what you can’t have…
She’s always been off limits…
Former Army Special Forces Sgt. Marco Vieri has never thought of Alyssa Scott as more than his best friend’s little sister, but her return home changes that…and challenges him to keep his war-borne demons at bay. Marco’s not the same person he was back when he protected Alyssa from her abusive father, and he’s not about to let her see the mess he’s become.
…but now she’s all grown up.
When Alyssa takes a job at the bar where Marco works, her carefree smiles wreak havoc on his resolve to bury his feelings. How can he protect her when he can’t stop thinking about her in his bed? But Alyssa’s not looking for protection–not anymore. Now that she’s back in his life, she’s determined to heal her forbidden hero, one touch at a time…
