Holding Out For a Hero? HERO UNDERCOVER has 25
By A.C. Rose
I cannot wait for you to meet my new alpha hero with a heart, Detective Hercules. Sigh.
He’s featured in the new HERO UNDERCOVER Box Set. I am joining with 24 other authors to bring this exciting collection of hot heroes your way. This sizzling compilation includes military masters, determined detectives, and rope twirling cowboys. It’s great beach reading for anyone who likes sexy, commanding alpha males.
About Detective Hercules
Detective “Herc” Hercules Anderson is working the desk, and answering phones in his Manhattan police precinct. Due to a hand injury, he’s been pulled off his undercover assignment and he’s more than a little disappointed and bored to be on paperwork detail.
All of that changes, when early one morning he takes a call from a woman with a sultry, sexy voice who needs assistance. Not the standard call he is used to―she needs first-aid advice for a possible broken toe. During their conversation, something pulls him in. He gives her advice and arranges medical care for her, instead of referring her to 911.
Lizzy Harper, a radio dating expert with a hyper-sexual drive-time show, is taken aback by her feelings for the detective who helped her. Details of her experience with him become the talk of her show the following morning and the NYPD is not pleased.
Herc, to save the department embarrassment and protect his job, must go undercover as Lizzy’s boyfriend to ease the media uproar. During this undercover assignment, he discovers Lizzy has more than just fans of the show, someone has a sinister motive. He makes a pledge to protect her. During their time together they find that their phone meeting may be karma, as the sparks between them start to fly.
Can Herc uncover the threat and keep Lizzy safe? Will he still have a job when the assignment is over? Will Herc’s undercover assignment become personal and permanent?
