Today it is my pleasure to spotlight the release of HER HOMETOWN HERO by Melody Anne



Dr. Spence is searching for the perfect woman…but how will he know when he’s found her?
From New York Times bestselling author Melody Anne, the second steamy romance in a new breakout series based on her beloved and bestselling Billionaire novels.


Her Hometown HeroIn the bestselling books Billionaire Wins the Game, Hidden Treasure, and The Billionaire’s Marriage Proposal, among others, we met the Andersons. Matchmaking patriarchs Joseph and George took matters into their own hands to get their sons to marry and settle down. But now that Dr. Spence Whitman sees how happy his Anderson friends are in married life, he’s itching to get hitched too! But how will he find The One?
After his wealthy dad adopted him and his two brothers at a young age, Spence grew up learning there are more important things in life than money. He wants to find a girl who shares that philosophy, and it wouldn’t hurt to have some similar interests too. Now if he could just stop getting distracted by his gorgeous surgical resident, he could start looking for the perfect wife…

Read an exclusive excerpt from Who I Am With You: 

In Her Hometown Hero, this was one of my favorite scenes because I love when there is playfulness with my characters. I love to show the inner child in my hero’s and how that affects my heroines.

To me there is nothing sexier than a man who is confident in himself and his situation and goes after what he wants, but who still knows how to unbutton his shirt and laugh with true joy. There is so much more to life than work and sleep. Laughter keeps us alive.

Do this! Do that! Move it, Dr. Banks. In the ER she couldn’t complain about Spence’s orders, but when it came to what and when she drove, he didn’t have a leg to stand on. And since he had such fine legs, that was a shame.
“We can argue more about it in an hour,” he said peremptorily.
She looked at him while he stuck out his tongue to catch a snowflake. Despite his last words, for him, the subject was finished. He’d had his say, and in his opinion the conversation was over and done with.
Sage scooped up a large mass of snow and began forming a ball. She was nearly finished when he noticed what she was doing, and he took a cautious step backward.
“Now, Dr. Banks, I would just put that down slowly if I were you.”
“I’m not you, Spence. Why so formal all of the sudden?”
“Retaliation will be swift and furious,” he warned her with a gleam in his eyes that she should have tuned in to.
But she’d never been able to resist a challenge, and the snowball in her hand and his arrogant smile were just too much to resist. Without giving it much conscious thought, she let the ball fly from her palm. It whizzed through the air, aimed with deadly accuracy right at his incredulous eye. But he turned at the last second and the snow exploded against the side of his head.
He lifted a hand and wiped the snow from his hair. “I can’t believe you actually threw that.”
She was already regretting her impulsive decision. She’d started a war with only one possible outcome, and that wasn’t her victory. Still, if she was going down, she’d do it fighting. First, she’d attempt escape, but if that didn’t work, it would be all weapons set on automatic fire.
“That was my pager,” she said, and she immediately turned and began running toward the side doors she’d come through earlier.
“Not gonna happen, Sage. Mine would be going off, too, but good try,” he yelled, his voice seeming to be only inches behind her ear.
She tried to pick up her pace, but found herself sliding—beneath the fresh layer of snow was packed ice. She was going to fall flat on her . . . rear if she didn’t slow up. Of course, she was going to fall if she stood still.
She’d take her chances with the snow. Speeding up, she saw freedom in her sights when suddenly strong arms wrapped around her waist, spinning her around and stealing the breath from her lungs, and then she and Spence were launching into the air.
“We’re going down,” he said, belaboring the obvious.
Sage cried out, expecting this to hurt, but he somehow managed to turn them around before they fell, and his back landed with a splash in the snow while she bounced against his chest—his delectably hard chest.

    The type of hero that keeps me completely engaged is one who is strong, but unexpectedly vulnerable. It also helps if that hero has a dry sense of humor and keen wit. If a book hero can make me laugh, I’m in love!

  2. Suzanne

    The hero is intuitive. He knows what to do to identify the heroine’s problem and then he has the skills and resources to solve her problem. He can deliver!

  3. Cheryl Hastings

    It’s the personality for me. After the initial description, I either disregard it because I picture someone totally different or it just doesn’t matter to me 🙂

  4. ELF

    I think the combination of confidence and vulnerability is what appeals to me the most! Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. marcyshuler

    I’d have to say it’s mostly the hero’s character. How he treats other people. Is he caring, loyal, hard working and have a sense of humor.

    • Nicole Ortiz

      I would say the way they are described and the way they carry themself.
      Thanks for the chance

  6. Winnie Lim

    How he treats the heroine. I love those alpha men but still willing to compromise for the woman he love.

  7. Joanne B

    I love a hero who is strong, sexy, has a sense of humor and can laugh at himself, kind, and loyal.

  8. Kathleen

    Confidence is a big plus and for me it’s also the way he treats those around him, his protectiveness to those he loves

  9. Sylve T.

    all of what you said! their loyalty, honesty, caring, passion, determination, personality.
