hero is selfless, a genuinely good person, and someone gets the undivided attention of all of us and causes change. Someone willing to risk their own life to save another.

Who doesn’t love a hero, especially one who does not see himself in that role but who sacrifices selflessly to protect others. Heroes are courageous, dedicated, and make great role models in books. My HEROES RISING SERIES (ELLE JAMES BROTHERHOOD PROTECTORS WORLD) is about the strength heroes need when their familiar world is shattered by injury that forces them to make changes in their lives. About the unexpected situations that force them to do it and how they emerge from the conflict. My heroes in the series are all inspired by my friend JACK CARR, who you all have heard me talk about numerous times. A 20-year SEAL, everything from sniper to team leader, to me he symbolizes what a real hero is. Which is probably why I chose a cover for GUARDING JENNA where the model resembles him as much as possible.

The series, as the name implies, is about heroes needing to figure out their new place in life. Out of the military service, still rehabbing from battle wounds, still trying to figure out what to do with the rest of their lives, each book tells the story of a hero who succeeded in finding a new place in life for himself and, coincidentally. a woman to share it with.

Jenna Donovan grew up in a world of great wealth and privilege. Powerful men and women from all over the country attended the lavish parties that her stepfather hosted on their Montana ranch. But the night of one party, one of those men crept into her bedroom, blindfolded her and viciously raped her, threatening to kill her if she spoke out. Years of therapy have helped her deal with it but she still freezes at the thought of an intimate relationship. Now she’s a true crime writer specializing in unsolved rape cases, determined to find others similar to hers and track down the rapist. When she uncovers several committed over the past fifteen years, she knows she must return to Montana to find her answers.


Medically discharged after twelve years in the SEALs, Scott Nolan doesn’t know what to do with himself. There’s not much in civilian life for a former sniper. Then a friend puts him in touch with Hank Patterson who heads Brotherhood Protectors and he feels as if he’s found a home again. He’s just finished his first assignment when Hank receives a call from Grey Holden, head of The Omega Team in Tampa, who asks him to have someone keep an eye on Jenna. Good thing, too, because she’s hardly settled into her rental cabin before someone leaves a threatening note under her windshield followed up by a dead skunk on her doorstep with another note.

Good thing the cabin has two bedrooms because Hank insists Scott move in with Jenna so he can monitor her twenty-four/seven. As Jenna gets closer to finding her answers, the attempts on her life increase. But is she in more danger from the unknown person or from Scott, himself a tortured soul but who wakens feelings she is afraid to face may be the only one who can get past her emotional fear and teach her how to love?
