Publisher's Summary

After a botched raid in Afghanistan, ex-army specialist Michel Deverroux returned to Galveston, Texas, with more baggage than intended. Without family, friends, or money, Michel turned to drugs to relieve the horrors of war. He knew it was a dark path, but he saw no other choice. Michel was awash in a world of numbness and addiction until his estranged uncle Andy died, leaving Michel a rundown beach front home and a hefty inheritance.

With something to finally call his own in the world, a spark of hope returns to Michel's life - a spark that is ignited when he sees a somber yet beautiful woman walking along the beach. Michel falls instantly in love with her and nicknames her his "Mermaid". Now, determined to be a man that his new love would want to be with, Michel vows to turn his life around and win over his "Mermaid", Annabelle. Overcoming the shadows of his past seems nearly impossible, but the drive to have Annabelle gives Michel the motivation to overcome his demons.

    "Nice, sweet romance story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would say this is a good listen and would recommend it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Heart of a Hero?

    I likes when they first met in the store and Michel was so stunned he wasn't able to speak right away.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction but I thought it had a good storyline and the narration was very good.


    Any additional comments?

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Short and simple"

    DC Cole does a great job narrating this one. I was expecting something different from this story from beginning chapters. But, it was a short, simple listen.

    "Ok story, great narration"

    The huskiness of DC Coles voice made an otherwise ok story have so much more depth. "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

    Story
    "The perfect combination of heart and heat"

    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    This was so unexpectedly sweet - though I suppose I shouldn't be surprised since Overhaul was also sweet too! I was a little hesitant about the story when I saw that the male lead (Michel) turned to drugs to deal with his PTSD and depression (I tend to stray away from anything that prominently features drug abuse), but it wasn't glorified or focused on too much and the proper message was delivered. Annabelle was a sweet female lead and it was beautiful watching her and Michel come together and grow as a couple and individuals. They both had rough pasts and issues that plagued them, but I really appreciated how they stuck together and communicated openly and honestly from beginning to end and let their difficulties bring them together instead of tearing them apart. The Heart of a Hero was the perfect mix of heart and heat and I look forward to reading more from Amber Burns. I enjoyed listening to the Audible version - the male narrator's voice was perfect (especially at 1.25x speed), but I did find it mildly awkward that it was told in first person POV from Michel and third person POV for Annabelle. Other than that, it was just a good book! I give it 4 out of 5 wine glasses.

    "Amazing"

    A wonderful love story, a narrator that adds to it to make it an amazing experience. Michel and Ana deserved it all! Loved it so very much!

    Story
    "The heart of a hero"

    The story begins on the battlefield of Afghanistan. And stays with your main character Michelle for a good while before he meets his lady love. His is a story of a hard life that he is able to overcome time and again. The scene with his mother is one memorable moment. Great narration!!!

    Story
    "Great Romance and Well Performed"
    What made the experience of listening to The Heart of a Hero the most enjoyable?

    The audio work is very well done, just allowing the listener to sink into the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Heart of a Hero?

    I loved that the book delt with a soldier returning from war and moving on with PTSD, and finally getting a happy ending.


    What does D. C. Cole bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narration gave the book a nice weight. The words are deep, but the added resonance is appreciated.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    After the war ends, the fight continues. This time there's a happy ending.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book with a lot of heart. I appreciated this book on its own merits, and am happy to leave this voluntary review to let others know what a great experience this has been. This is a review of a copy gifted to me.

    Story
    "This Hero's Heart Was Healed"

    I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my own review. The thing that made the hero leave home at the age of 13 is too common in today's society. After a tragedy while on tour in Afghanistan he comes home and meets Annabelle who also has had a bad past. The story is less than four hours but is well written and DC Cole gives a wonderful narration. I enjoyed the story and I truly enjoyed D C Cole.
