Calvin Parish
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.

Oh my goodness! This has to be one of the best reads, as of late for me. In my opinion, HERO is a modern day Beauty and the Beast.

I do not want to give away too much, so I will say as much as I can, without spoilers.

Calvin Parish runs Parish media in a small town called New Rhonan. Cataline Ford works as Calvin's personal assistant. Cataline does not know much about him, but she does know that she is attracted to him, even though he can be harsh and demanding.

Upon walking home from work one evening, Cataline is kidnapped. Someone comes up from behind her, covers her mouth and is just, well .... Gone. She wakes groggy and confused, in a gorgeous bedroom. This is where she is introduced to Norman the butler and Rose, the housekeeper, who both care for her. She knows nothing of where she is, other than it is absolutely breathtaking.

Cataline is treated as a prisoner in the home, and the only one who shows her any compassion is Norman. She can't understand why she has been kidnapped. Why me, she thinks? Why at the same time. do they treat me so well? Upon further investigation, the kidnapper knows everything about her, down to her favorite book, meal and exact clothing size.


Cataline does not know who her kidnapper is, but she's determined to find out. The longer she is there, the more that she learns. She is set on finding out why this has happened to her, and how she can escape. However, she also feels the need to stay. Is it a connection with her captor that she feels, or fear of being caught, should she escape?

I must say that this book was extremely hard to put down. HERO has an epic storyline and it just kept sucking me in, deeper and deeper. I honestly believe that the storyline was strong enough that it did not need the explicit and adult content that it did. Nonetheless ... I absolutely adored it. Please do me a favor and pick up your copy today!!!!!

Please be aware that HERO is for mature audiences only and has adult content. Recommended for ages 18+
