Kait Nolan is stuck in an office all day, sometimes juggling all three of her jobs at once with the skill of a trained bear—sometimes with a similar temperament. After hours, she uses her powers for good, creating escapist fiction. The work of this Mississippi native is packed with action, romance, and the kinds of imaginative paranormal creatures you’d want to sweep you off your feet…or eat your boss. When she’s not working or writing, she’s in her kitchen, heading up a revolution to Retake Homemade from her cooking blog, Pots and Plots.

He has one mission
Since they were children, career cop Judd Hamilton has built his life around taking care of his best friend, Autumn Buchanan. While he might once have dreamed of a different future for them, everything changed the day her father tried to kill them both. Determined to keep her safe, Judd put his feelings aside and turned his focus to protecting her, always.
She leads a double life
Nobody in their small town would ever dream that Autumn, Wishful's friendly librarian, is really successful erotic romantic suspense author, Rumor Fairchild. No one knows that the swoon-worthy hero of her series is based on her best friend, Judd. He's been fulfilling her rescue fantasies for years, and now she's ready to catapult them out of the friend zone to make her real life romance come true.
Will Judd be able to protect her when her real life nightmare returns?
Q: What makes the Wishing For A Hero series special?
Wishing For A Hero is a collection of southern romance novels honoring my Mississippi roots. When I started my core Wishful Romance series, I set out to highlight everything that I love about living in the small town South--all our quirks, foibles, and dreams provide a fabulous (and often funny) backdrop to contemporary romances about stubborn, independent women and the men who love them. But not every story fit that lighter side. Wishing For A Hero novels are still small town romance stories, but they've got a darker tone and an edge of suspense.
Q: Who would dig these books?
Wishing For A Hero is a southern romance series written for anyone looking for love in a small town--with a dose of suspense.
Q: Are there crossovers with other series?
YES! Come meet the lighter side of Wishful with my primary Wishful Romance Series
* To Get Me To You (Cam and Norah)
* Be Careful, It's My Heart (Brody and Tyler)
* Know Me Well (Liam and Riley)
* Just For This Moment (Myles and Piper)

Really enjoyed this book
I Really enjoyed this!
I really enjoyed this new story. The book was still set in wishful but this time we got to meet some different people we have not seen. This book definitely had a bit more darkness than the other wishful series, but I enjoyed seeing wishful for a town that was a bit more relatable to the world today. Autumn and Judd are great characters the kind you can't wait to see what's going to happen next between the stubborn damsel in distress and the protective police officer.
I love Kait Nolan's Wishful series but this series is different. The setting is still Wishful. The people are some of the same. The difference is it is not as lighthearted. There is some tension and suspense and darkness in this book. Judd and Autumn start out as friends, even though everyone in Wishful knows they should be so much more. Once they get to that point in the story, Autumn's life falls apart. I wasn't sure when Nolan told her Squee Squad that this was a darker book how it would be. I wasn't too sure about Nolan writing from a darker perspective. She won me over in a heartbeat. The book is clean and suspenseful. The book is amazing in its characters but it is definitely the plot that carries the book.
I am a fan of the Wishful series, I feel like the characters are my family and friends. This book has a slight change to it compared to the others, a good change........there's a bit of a darker side that includes a bit of mystery, intrigue and suspense. LOVED it and can't wait for the next one. This kept me involved the whole time and I struggled to put the book down. I love Autumn and Judd, even though I wanted to reach into the book and slap Judd a few times! I must not forget that this also includes a bit of hot and steamy love scenes too.....phwoar!!!
There are absolutely no words to express the BIG LOVE I feel for this book!!! I have enjoyed the entire Wishful series and this certainly is no exception!!! Judd and Autumn had me from beginning to end, laughing, crying, smiling and cheering (with a bit of frustration) to the point that I did not want the book to end!!! This has to be one of my all time favorite books and these two characters are on the top of the list of my favorites. This book is well worth the read and if you haven't read the rest of the Wishful books, please read them, they are well worth it. I would also like to become a Southerner!!!
This book is a must read! I have loved all the books in the Wishful series, but with this new spinoff into the Wishing for a Hero, author Kait Nolan has knocked one out of the park. This book is dramatic, suspenseful, sweet, and romantic. As with her other books, this book has appearances by characters in the previous novels, but can be read as a stand-alone, and never has a cliffhanger. I definitely recommend this book. I received a complimentary copy of this book and have chosen to review it.
