Josh Windsor was a DEA operative until his actions placed him in some very hot water. With his job pretty much gone, he is not sure what he will do next -- until someone offers him employment as a private investigator. Unfortunately, she happens to be a woman he loathes.
Deana Armstrong knows that Josh hates her with a passion. But her nephew has been wrongfully accused of murdering his parents, and she needs someone to find out the truth. With checkbook in hand, the rich heiress confronts the sexy man and offers him a job.
Josh is determined to let Deana’s offer fall to the wayside, but somehow he finds himself investigating the events that led to her brother and sister-in-law’s deaths. As the clues begin to unravel, a new obstacle blocks Josh’s concentration. Deana, with her cold as ice attitude, suddenly becomes much too appealing for him, and he tries to control his lustful thoughts even as their relationship explodes into passion. As the murder rap continues to point in her nephew’s direction, will Deana be able to handle the truth if it means believing in her heart versus believing in her family?
Ms. Dimon knows how to write fiction with an intensity that leaves the reader clamoring for more. The attraction between Josh and Deana is felt from the very beginning and only escalates as the storyline continues. Holding out for a Hero is a tale full of mystery, murder, mayhem, mistaken impressions, and finding love in the most unexpected place. Not one moment is dull within the pages of this highly sensual story. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel and cannot wait to read more from this outstanding author!
