Welcome Guest Author Tara Mills

Tarnished Hero CoverI am crazy about this author’s books. Tara Mills is a prolific romance writer with six or seven new books out this year. All of them are delightful — well written, romantic, sexy, captivating stories. You can’t go wrong with a Tara Mills romance. Today I am focusing on TARNISHED HERO, Book Two of the Pelican Cay series. I wrote an Amazon review last week. Let’s start with that.

I am a Tara Mills fan, plain and simple. I loved the first book in her Pelican Cay series (Intimate Strangers), so when I found out book two was now available, I pounced. One of my favorite things about Tarnished Hero (book two), is that we get to check in with Brady and Kate from book one. Spoiler alert: it’s great to know they are still together and more in love than ever.

But back to Untamed Hero. I totally fell in love with the book’s namesake, Hero Hernandez. He’s masculine, sexy and emotionally vulnerable, a quality you don’t see often enough in erotic romance. He also has his pride. Having gotten tangled up with a predatory older woman, Margarite, he’s just decided he’s tired of being used as her sex toy as the story opens. Immediately thereafter he’s confronted by Margarite’s college-aged daughter, Dani, who of course assumes the worst about the handsome young man she finds in her mom’s shower. Sparks of attraction ignite between them despite their bad beginning, and Hero tells his friend Brady, “I’m screwed man. I saw her and it was like a shot to the heart. Pow. You know what I’m saying?” (This is the point where I fell for Hero.)

It takes Dani a little longer to admit she’s smitten with Hero, and she hates the idea that she might be competing with her mom for his affections. You’ll enjoy the story of how they work things out, especially the love scenes, which Tara Mills describes so sublimely. It’s another five-star review from me, and I can hardly wait for book three in this sizzling series. 

Want to know more? Here’s the official blurb:

Falling for Hero is easy. Forgetting he was her mother’s lover? Impossible. 

When Danica Strauss catches sexy Hero Hernandez stepping out of her mother’s shower, their instant and intense attraction is most unwelcome. 

The quintessential cougar, Margarite Strauss won’t be denied when she wants something…or someone. That is, not until her daughter flies home unexpectedly and pulls her boy toy right out of her arms. Emotions run hot. Passions run even hotter. 

Will Dani be able to accept what can’t be changed and give her heart to Hero?

Still not hooked? How about an excerpt?  (R-rated for language)

Thank you, Nola, for sharing Tarnished Hero, and Intimate strangers, with your friends and fans. I’m thrilled you enjoyed the series. Watch for Dark Storms coming this summer. We pick up with Hero’s sister, Adriana in that one.
