The true measure of a man is not in the mistakes he makes…but in how he handles those mistakes.
After leaving the Army, Zander King wants nothing more to do with being a hero. His life plan is to work hard to make his bar successful. Old habits die hard, though, so when a beautiful stranger walks into the bar to drink alone, his protective instincts kicked into high gear. It was a good thing too, because his was not the only eye she caught in his rough-side-of-town establishment.
When a man won't take no for an answer from her, Zander kicks him out, but he sends the woman, who doesn't belong there, packing too. Too late, he realizes his mistake in releasing the petite, vulnerable woman out into the neighborhood alone, when he finds her near death outside the bar at closing time.
Racked with guilt, Zander's conscience won't let him abandon her until he knows she'll be okay. At the hospital days later, his sleeping beauty, Jane Doe, finally wakes up, but she doesn't remember who she is or how she got there.
Zander vows to help her put the pieces of her memory back together, but would regaining her memory only put her in more danger?
A Heroes at Heart novel based loosely on the fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty.
Themes, language, and adult situations are similar to an R-rated movie. For 18+ years.

- Just My Opinion
I found this wonderful story roughly based on the story of Sleeping Beauty enchanting. I appreciated the prologue where we discovered how Zander and his friends met in the foster home and came to live with Miss Ethel. I loved how they stayed in touch with her and grew to love her like a mother. I also really liked how Zander cared for the heroine and read to her in the hospital not caring what anyone thought of what he was reading. This was the first book from this author I have listened to and I must say I really enjoyed it. I hope the next book in the series will be available soon. I thought the narrator did a nice job with all the voices and even the female voices were quite acceptable.

Finding love after guilt
Good story. Bar owner, Zander, kicked out a rowdy patron and then the woman who had been harassed by said man. Later Zander discovers her brutally beaten body outside his bar. Since she apparently has no relatives, he begins to visit her in the hospital and reads to her. What began as a guilty obligation...she wouldn’t have been attacked if he hadn’t kicked her out...becomes something more. As Zander helps Rosalie put the pieces of her memory and life back together, the relationship becomes more real...will it survive once he tells her the truth? Is there someone out there who still wants to harm Rosalie? Love the foster mom and Zander’s brothers...a protective bunch. Sweet HEA.
