About this ebook

The Troubleshooters return in the latest thriller from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann! Some Kind of Hero showcases Brockmann’s signature white-knuckle suspense, romantic twists, and sexy Navy SEALs.

Navy men don’t come tougher than Lieutenant Peter Greene. Every day he whips hotshot SEAL wannabes into elite fighters. So why can’t he handle one fifteen-year-old girl? His ex’s death left him a single dad overnight, and very unprepared. Though he can’t relate to an angsty teen, he can at least keep Maddie safe—until the day she disappears. Though Pete’s lacking in fatherly intuition, his instinct for detecting danger is razor sharp. Maddie’s in trouble. Now he needs the Troubleshooters team at his back, along with an unconventional ally.

Romance writer Shayla Whitman never expected to be drawn into a real-world thriller—or to meet a hero who makes her pulse pound. Action on the page is one thing. Actually living it is another story. Shay’s not as bold as her heroines, but she’s a mother. She sees the panic in her new neighbor’s usually fearless blue eyes—and knows there’s no greater terror for a parent than having a child at risk. It’s an ordeal Shay won’t let Pete face alone. She’s no highly trained operative, but she’s smart, resourceful, and knows what makes teenagers tick.

Still, working alongside Pete has its own perils—like letting the heat between them rise out of control. Intimate emotions could mean dangerous, even deadly, consequences for their mission. No matter what, they must be on top of their game, and playing for keeps . . . or else Pete’s daughter may be gone for good.

A good book when the next one? Once a year I start at the beginning read them until last one you wrote. Thanks can not get enough from start to the end I do not want to be inter uped. Keep weighting.

I grew more and more nervous as I read this book about a romance novelist who not only had writers block but seemed to be despairing. I love Suzanne Brockmann and more than anything else you've help me understand people. It takes a deep level of understanding to write a great romance novel because your right it is all about emotions. I think you really have to understand the psychology of people to write them so believably.

Highly exciting, action packed and extremely emotional romantic journey for a newly single father and awesomely insightful writer. Entertaining late night, not really wanting to sleep, cuddled in a nice warm bed read. Lieutenant Peter Greene is a hotter than hot elite SEAL instructor who is also a newly single father of an angry fifteen year old daughter after his ex-wife passes away. Shayla Whitman is a awesomely sassy, sweet, sexy and insightful romance writer living across the street from a real life hero Peter Greene and his head strong teen daughter. Sparks fly between these two as they face danger and work as a team to rescue Peter's daughter. Loved it.
