Thanks for stopping by today!  I’m Alanna Lucas and I write Regency-set romance. I am ecstatic to share my latest release with you, which is part of The Heart of a Hero series.

What if your favorite superheroes had Regency-era doppelgängers? And what if a group of them were recruited by the Duke of Wellington to gather intelligence for him during the Napoleonic Wars while they protected their own parts of the realm?

You’d get The Heart of a Hero series.

Nine authors are bringing nine full-length novels to you this summer, each telling the story of a man or woman who is a hero in all senses of the word.

My contribution to the series is Only a Hero Will Do


Defender of the realm…and his wary heart…

Captain Grant Alexander is an enigma in London society. Dashing and handsome, he coldly eschews marriage. But the ton knows nothing of his role in the Legion: to bring Typhon, the traitor who seeks to destroy the British monarchy, to justice.

When Grant is thrown together with fellow Legion member Elizabeth Atwell, he’s instantly beguiled yet exasperated by this beautiful viscount’s daughter. She has little interest in combing the marriage mart for a well-bred, well-heeled husband, but is adept at code-breaking and handling a bow and arrow. She also refuses to do as she is told, insisting she accompany Grant on his mission.

As Typhon continues to evade capture and dark forces are at work, Grant realizes he must act, not only to protect the realm but Elizabeth too…not to mention his heart, which is in danger of thawing every time she comes close…

Can you guess which superhero inspired Captain Grant Alexander?

I’ll give you a hint… He’s from Brooklyn.




This past March, my daughter and I went to New York and one of the things on our to-do list was to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. We couldn’t resist the photo op 😉




Need another hint?

 This is my favorite Pop! Vinyl!

The research for this book was tough *said with sarcasm*. In addition to researching the history of Captain America, which dates back to 1941, I had (yes, HAD) to watch all the Captain America and Avengers movies numerous times to ensure I captured the essence of his character. My kids enthusiastically supported every aspect of this project!

Who’s your favorite superhero?
