Today is officially THE day, the start of A HERO'S BLOG HOP!! It will run from today, July 27 thru Tuesday July 31, just like the banner says :)


The point of this blog hop is to talk about our heros so I would like to introduce you to my hero......or at least the hero from my current release :)


I love this hero because he is just so sweet but sexy at the same time and of course he's a Navy man and that makes him just that much more perfect for me !

I'm going to let my hero Nicholas say a few words if you don't mind.....



Hey there, my name is Nicholas Prescott and I’m the hero in 'Second Chances'.Welcome to A Passion for Romance and let me just send thanks to Krista for letting me say a few words today.

Krista tells me this is A Hero’s Blog Hop? Interesting, so, what do you think makes a great hero?

I don’t think any of us sets out to be one, it just happens…and they come from literally all walks of life.

It's really about being completely unselfish and doing good for someone or something, an act of bravery. I sure didn’t feel much like the hero in Second Chances in the beginning. In case you aren’t familiar with the book yet, I fell in love with an amazing woman (Dana). Seriously, she was the best thing in my life and I would do anything for her or to protect her.

Well, unfortunately some things happened that I couldn’t tell her about. I was forced to make a choice and I left her. And didn’t look back, didn’t say goodbye.

Hardest day of my life…anyway….

Now for Dana, what choice did I really give her but to move on with her life without me? It wasn't an easy feat but I'm super proud of her for doing her best. She travels to Seattle Washington for her best friend's wedding but little does she know there's so much more planned for her.

The only fear now...will she deny any possibility of second chances?


I can’t really tell you what happens next but you should definitely buy the book to find out. It's a sweet romance and it's available at Ruby Lioness Press or Amazon.
~Nicholas Prescott



I think Nicholas makes a good hero becuase he was compassionate toward Dana, he couldn't stand to see her hurting. He was willing to do anything to make it up to her, to protect her, even if she didn't realize it. And of course on another note, he was a member of the Armed Services, the Navy...doing his duty to his country. Can't get much more honorable than that.

Wouldn't you love a hero like that? I have one of those heros in my own life as well...my hubby is a wonderful man and is always willing to do for me and our children before himself much like my own father was. It's the little things....when I sneeze, he blesses me. When we go somewhere, he always opens the Qualities like that say alot about a man. I hope my son grows up to be just like him and can also be someone's hero !

  3. Great post! Nicholas Prescott sounds like the perfect hero to me. I think I just saw my ideal hero on TV a few minutes ago. Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the man who invented the internet. I'm kidding. Maybe. lol

  21. I like the idea of a second chance. Some times things happen and a great couple split up, so when they fight to get back together you know it was meant to be. With a hero that never gives up getting her back, you have a perfect hero for me.

  32. My hero is tall like everyone else, but he’s slender not super muscly, maybe a runner, with long hair he can tie back, a little awkward and shy he’s got a great sense of humor and is fiercely loyal…he may also enjoy wearing suspenders and bow-ties, also very good with guns, swords and bows ;) you know for the zombie apocalypse.
