Title: A Hero for Hailey: a romantic comedy (Love will OUT Book 1)

Author: D.E. Haggerty

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Book Blurb:

I do not need some man to come riding in on a stupid white horse to save me, thank you very much.

When I run into a teensy-weensy bit of trouble, who should show up but Aiden - my high school nemesis. Unfortunately, Aiden doesn't realize he's my high school tormentor. Nope. He doesn't even remember who I am. Gee, thanks.

Suddenly Aiden is everywhere, claiming he'll protect me. Do I look like I need protecting? But when Aiden speaks to me in that deep, sultry savior voice, my knees wobble and I forget my name.

I better get to solving this trouble I'm in, so Aiden will move right on out of my life. Only he says he doesn't want to move on. He wants to stick by my side forever. Not happening.

But like my pops always says Love will OUT.

Hit BUY NOW to grab your copy today! A Hero for Hailey is book 1 of the romantic comedy series Love will OUT but can be read as a standalone. This romantic comedy features a kick-ass PI with a chip the size of a Green Bay Packer on her shoulder, a sexy detective she wants to hate but really wants to tie to a bed and see what happens, a best friend who defines the word klutzy, and a makeshift family of former Army buddies who think telling dirty jokes is a sign of love.

My Review:

P.I. Hailey has her camera out and is taking pictures of a cheating husband when she’s caught red-handed by none other than her high school crush, Aiden. He’s a police detective now and insists she tell him what she’s doing outside a motel room window. Add insult to injury, he doesn’t recognize her, even though they’ve run into each other over the years since her humiliating high school years. Aiden and his friends took pleasure in teasing her. She never forgot what he did to her and naturally holds a grudge. She’s in trouble and he’s taking it upon himself to ‘rescue’ her, like a knight in shining armor. As if. Hailey can take care of herself. But that doesn’t stop Hailey’s heart to thump out of her chest when he talks to her in that sultry voice of hers. She’s conflicted big time and she better figure it out fast because if she’s not careful, he might prove to her love will win out.

A Hero for Hailey is a hysterical romantic comedy with a snarky heroine and a charming hero. D.E. Haggerty takes the high school crush and adds a new spin to this very popular second-chance romance genre. Hailey is a snarky heroine with a big chip on her shoulder. She has a lot to learn about love and Aiden is more than willing to be her teacher. The witty sparring between these two had me laughing hard. The dialogue is fresh, modern with plenty of sarcasm. The romantic tension is layered throughout the plot and had me whipping through the pages. I finished this in one sitting. Yes, I couldn’t put down this gem of a romance. If you love snarky, independent heroines, you’ll love A Hero for Hailey. Highly recommend!

Author Biography:

I grew up reading everything I could get my grubby hands on, from my mom's Harlequin romances, to Nancy Drew, to Little Women. When I wasn't flipping pages in a library book, I was penning horrendous poems, writing songs no one should ever sing, or drafting stories which have thankfully been destroyed. College and a stint in the U.S. Army came along, robbing me of free time to write and read, although on the odd occasion I did manage to sneak a book into my rucksack between rolled up socks, MRIs, t-shirts, and cold weather gear. After surviving the army experience, I went back to school and got my law degree. I jumped ship and joined the hubby in the Netherlands before the graduation ceremony could even begin. A few years into my legal career, I was exhausted, fed up, and just plain done. I quit my job and sat down to write a manuscript, which I promptly hid in the attic before returning to the law. But practicing law really wasn’t my thing, so I quit (again!) and went off to Germany to start a B&B. Turns out running a B&B wasn’t my thing either. I polished off that manuscript languishing in the attic before following the husband to Istanbul where I decided to give the whole writer-thing a go. But ten years was too many to stay away from my adopted home. I packed up again and moved to The Hague where, in between tennis matches and failing to save the world, I’m currently working on my next book. I hope I’ll always be working on my next book.
