Book Review: Be My Hero by Nell Dixon

Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: September 3, 2012
Publisher: Astraea Press

The Blurb:
Nathalie Mayer is thirty-four. On the surface she is an attractive, happy, single, successful woman running her own bridal business. Despite her line of work and her obvious delight in other people’s weddings, including that of her twin brother, Nate. Nathalie has always declared that a settled relationship is not for her. There has only ever been one man whom Nathalie felt she could love.
Evan Davies is back in town after a six year absence. Last time he was here, he and Nathalie had tentatively begun to take their friendship to a different level. Now he’s home again and has the reason for his sudden departure from six years ago with him - his daughter, Polly.

My Review:
Be My Hero by Nell Dixon is a quick, cute, and touching little romance story. Nathalie is immediately likable, and someone the reader could easily relate to. Nathalie and Evan didn't have a happily ever after the first time around, but they get a second chance. I love the dialog style and the way the story is written. Even before I knew where the story took place, I knew they must be English by the fun lingo. Though this story is short, their romance doesn't come quickly. Sure, the feelings came on quick... actually the feelings never left, but  both of them are carrying their own set of issues. They will either let these things make them or break them. You'll have to read it to find out which.

About the Author:
I’m Nell, and I was born and continue to live in a small area of the UK known as the Black Country. Happily married to the same man for over twenty-eight years, we have three beautiful daughters, a tank of tropical fish and a cactus called Spike. During the day I work for a disabilities charity in my local community.

In my spare time I enjoy travelling with my family in our touring caravan and exploring the countryside. I have a passion for cathedral architecture and historic buildings. I also enjoy walking, gardening and art.

Ever since I can remember I’ve loved stories and books, both reading and writing them. My first poem was published by a local paper when I was thirteen, since then I’ve had several poems published and was first runner up a few years ago in a national short story competition. I’ve also had several non-fiction articles published in professional journals.

Writing romance remains my first love and I write the kinds of stories that I love to read. My publishers to date include: Astraea Press, Myrmidon, Little Black Dress, Samhain Publishing, Moonlit Romance, By Grace, Freya's Bower, D C Thompson, Brierley Rose and E-Scape Press. I am also proud to say that I was the winner of the RNA’s Romance Prize in 2007 with my book Marrying Max, and Love Story of the year in 2010 with Animal Instincts.
