Can You Buy Courage?


Congratulations to "Jo-Anne", the winner of Jenny's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

When I started writing Hero Duty it was with the phrase “Billionaire Cinderella” in mind. What, I wondered, could make a wealthy, smart woman so scared that she reaches out to a stranger for help? The answer was obvious: family.

No one can hurt us, and no one can heal us, as much as those we love.

So I completely understood when my heroine, Jessica Trove, decided she needed to hire a hero. She needed an emotional bodyguard, someone on her side.

I think all of us could benefit from an emotional bodyguard at times. I don’t know about you, but I can be guilted into doing the most ridiculous things. I also worry about stuff. An emotional bodyguard would say “Enough!” and whisk me away for some “me” time – preferably with a good book and a box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates.

I can’t provide you with an emotional bodyguard, but I can put two copies of Hero Duty up for grabs. Just leave a comment for your chance to win the story of a Billionaire Cinderella and the man who didn’t believe he could be anyone’s handsome prince. She can buy anything she wants, except the courage to stand up to her family. That’s where he comes in.

Jessica Trove is a billionaire Cinderella, bullied by her family, and terrified of the responsibilities crashing down on her shoulders. She knows what she needs to do – she just needs to find the courage to do it.

That’s where Brodie Carlton comes in. Jessica is used to buying anything she wants, and what she wants right now is a hero. She’s going to make Brodie Carlton an offer he can’t refuse: be her emotional bodyguard, and she’ll make him rich. The only question is who will guard their hearts?

  1. Thanks, Maureen, for the chance to post here at Just Contemporary Romance, and to share my concept of an emotional bodyguard. I've already had a reader say she wished Brodie could have been real and there for her! Best feedback for an author. So real.

    1. Thanks! It hooked me and I had to write the story. I love books like that.

      Good luck!

  5. Interesting idea Jenny. I guess money can't buy everything. I think my emotional bodyguard is definitely my hubby. Mr Relax-it-is-not-a-tragedy is much better than chocolate. Good luck with this new release. :)

  7. I love the sound of Hero Duty. It's nice to see you made the woman wealthy instead of the man.
