You Had Me at Hero - Michael P. Thomas
Editions:Kindle: $ 3.99

When seventeen-year-old Mark Potts falls from a balcony, he loses both the use of his legs and any faith in heroes. Now twenty-nine, he’s long-since come to terms with his injury. His job provides more opportunities for eye-rolling than for riding to anybody’s rescue, but with two kids to bring up, he barely has time for his husband, much less for heroics. Besides, Starr is a policeman—how many heroes does one family need?

Mark and Starr love each other madly, but stress management is a load-bearing pillar of their happiness. When Mark’s coping skills fail him at the exactly-wrong moment, he’s left hanging by a thread of words he should’ve kept in his mouth. He has the power to repair their relationship, but when Starr’s workday suddenly goes south, will he get to wield it? Keeping it together long enough to find out is a job for Super Mark!

About the Author

Michael P. Thomas is a former flight attendant whose mid-life career change to 911 operator has shown him that the widespread fear of sharing and receiving love amounts to a real emergency. He writes to spread love and encourage others to do likewise. And a little bit to scare the gay-haters. He is the author of one novel and several novellas, and his short fiction has appeared in a number of romantic and erotic anthologies. After misspending his youth in San Francisco, he now lives in his native Colorado with his husband and their kitties.
