“Heart of a Hero was charming and heartwarming, full of friendship, love and in this case a herd of extremely cheeky cats!” ~ Under the Covers
Nicholas, originally an Atlantian but now working as Director of Security in Nova Mare, can face down Roman legions and angry gods but somehow is having trouble keeping safe one stubborn 21st century woman. Julia Campbell doesn’t need Nicholas, the most eligible bachelor around, to be her hero not only will she risk all the single women in Spellbound Falls pushing her off the nearest mountain but she has had her heart broken and her reputation ruined once she refuses doing it again…no matter how tempting he is.
What I like about Janet Chapman’s books are her characters, they are always so warm and easy to like; Julia was no different, she comes from a troubled background and I loved seeing her bravery and determination to make her own life and her siblings life’s better. As for Nicholas…he had me at six and half feet tall, maybe it is because I am quite tall but having a hero that I could potentially climb like a tree is a big YES for me!
If you are after a fast paced and exciting book this probably isn’t for you, this more like a slow romantic stroll through a meadow rather than a mad dash through rocky terrain. Although there was a small amount of action, this was mostly about Nicholas and Julia’s path to their own happily ever after.
Like all Janet Chapman books Heart of a Hero was charming and heartwarming, full of friendship, love and in this case a herd of extremely cheeky cats! I recommend you give this series a try.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
