Have you ever fallen in love with the wrong person—or the person who feels he or she is wrong for you?

PRAISE FOR NOBODY’S HERO:

With each new book Ms. Masters is weaving great stories for her Masters and making me fall in love with each couple. Karla and Adam are definitely my favorite, especially after this ending, but it definitely makes me want to read about Damián and Savi. (Amanda, Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews)

You show a higher level of respect for military details than any romance author I have read. As a retired Navy spouse, I really admire and respect you for the extra care you take with your writing. (Kathy Holtsclaw, retired Navy spouse)

This story made me laugh and brought tears to my eyes as Karla and Adam struggle through issues that most of us have. I love that these characters are portrayed as average humans and not perfect fantasy beings. Adam has his flaws…. What’s important is how he overcomes and adjusts to those as he learns what they are…. (Star, BDSM Book Reviews)


BOOK DESCRIPTION:

NOBODY'S HERO is the continuing romantic journey of Adam and Karla, which began in MASTERS AT ARMS & NOBODY'S ANGEL.

Retired Marine Master Sergeant Adam Montague has battled through four combat zones, but now finds himself retreating from Karla Paxton, who has declared war on his heart. With a significant age difference, he feels he should be her guardian and protector, not her lover. But Karla's knack for turning up in his bed at inopportune times is killing his resolve to do the right thing. Karla isn't the young girl he rescued nine years earlier—something his body reminds him of every chance it gets.

Their age difference is only part of the problem. Fifty-year-old Adam has been a collector of lost and vulnerable souls most of his life, but a secret he has run from for more than three decades has kept him emotionally unable to admit love for anyone. Will Karla be able to break through the defenses around his heart and help him put the ghosts from his past to rest? In her all-out war to get Adam to surrender his heart, will the strong-willed Goth singer offer herself as his submissive and, if so, at what cost to herself?


ABOUT THE RESCUE ME SAGA: The books in the ongoing Rescue Me Saga are not stand-alone stories and should be read in order. Characters will recur in later books to deal with further issues in their lives as the saga continues and each book builds upon all previous ones. Sometimes main characters even need another book to help resolve major issues affecting their relationships.


BONUS MATERIAL in this version: Kallypso Masters has added the PLAYLIST of music that inspired her as she wrote about the first three couples mentioned in this combined volume, as well as a GLOSSARY OF TERMS and a CAST OF CHARACTERS in these books in the saga.


CONTENT WARNING: These books are intended for mature adult readers who are not offended by profanity and graphic (but never gratuitous!) sex scenes. Due to the emotional way in which the author presents the subject matter in the characters’ lives (past and present), the books might cause triggers while reading.

Kallypso Masters’ beautiful writing and wonderful story telling takes you into the lives of Adam and Karla. One hard edged Marine falling for the girl who isn’t afraid to tell him what is on her mind and can see the soft heart he has... As Adam owns BDSM club, naturally there are some very steamy BDSM scenes and sensual bedroom scenes but the heart of the story is the love and trust between them.

This story made me laugh and brought tears to my eyes as Karla and Adam struggle through issues that most of us have. I love that these characters are portrayed as average humans and not perfect fantasy beings. Adam has his flaws as I think any Master does. What’s important is how he overcomes and adjusts to those as he learns what they are as well as how they affect Karla. Again, I can’t recommend Kallypso Masters as an author enough. Her stories are compelling, romantic,

Adam is exactly what his title implies. He is a Master to top all masters and completely unapologetic. He is dominating but protective and just a tiny bit stubborn. He has decided that Karla does not need someone like him and won’t even discuss anything to the contrary. It’s a good thing that Karla is just as stubborn as Master Adam because she wants him, she plans to have him, and nothing is going to stop her. The results are electrifying and so pleasingly naughty!

And speaking of tearjerkers, let me give you a warning about this book and please don't be like me and listen! My friend told me to have tissues ready while reading this. Of course I ignored that. I can honestly say I have not been reduced to a sobbing mess the way this book got me. I must've been crying for a half hour straight while reading it, let me tell you it wasn't pretty. But it was amazing!

This book isn’t an easy read and I am glad it wasn’t. It challenged me on so many levels and that is why I loved it. It doesn’t step away from taboo subjects. It hits them head on and you feel like you are right there with the characters feeling and doing the same things they are.

Meet the Author

USA Today Bestselling Author Kallypso Masters writes emotional, realistic Romance novels with dominant males (for the most part) and the strong women who can bring them to their knees. She also has brought many readers to their knees—having them experience the stories right along with her characters in the Rescue Me Saga. Kally knows that Happily Ever After takes maintenance, so her couples don’t solve all their problems and disappear at “the end” of their Romance, but will continue to work on real problems in their relationships in later books in the saga.

Kally has been writing full-time since May 2011, having quit her “day job” the month before. She lives in rural Kentucky and has been married for 30 years to the man who provided her own Happily Ever After. They have two adult children, one adorable grandson, and a rescued dog.

Kally enjoys meeting readers at national romance-novel conventions, book signings, and informal gatherings (restaurants, airports, bookstores, wherever!), as well as in online groups (including Facebook’s “The Rescue Me Saga Discussion Group”—send a friend request to Karla Montague on Facebook to join if you are 18 or older and don’t mind spoilers. Kally also visits the Fetlife “Rescue Me! discussion group” regularly). She hopes to meet you in her future travels whether virtually or in-person! If you meet her face to face, be sure to ask for a Kally’s friend button!

To contact or interact with Kally, go to Facebook, her Facebook Author page, or Twitter (@kallypsomasters).

To join the secret Facebook group Rescue Me Saga Discussion Group, please send a friend request to Karla Montague and she will open the door for you. Must be 18 to join.

    Wow, wow, wow!!! - Adam and Karla's story is just so very specia

    Wow, wow, wow!!! - Adam and Karla's story is just so very special. I knew it wouldn't be easy for the two of them to get together but this story was over the top wonderful. These two have had such a long running friendship and to see all that caring pack into a relationship was beautiful.

    And to top off the rocking relationship this story is pack with so much drama and so much past baggage getting unpacked that there something new every few pages. This book is not conducive to getting a good night's sleep that's for sure.

    And finally the set up for the next book in the final part of the book. I so can't wait for the next installment.

    One of the BEST series around

    I have enjoyed the first 3 books to the Rescue Me series. Masters has created an outstanding plot with unforgetable characters. I was pulled in from the very first chapter in Book 1 and was unable to put them done until I finished Nobody's Hero. I can't wait for Damian's and Savi's story as well as Cassie and Luke. I was drawn in to all of the characters lives, which doesn't happen often to me. I've laughed and cried with all of them. This in my opinion is a must read.

    Awesome read!!!

    I absolutely loved this book!! After reading Masters at Arms and Nobody's Angel, I had already liked the characters but Master Adam and Karla's story was even more compelling than the first two books. You will absolutely fall in love with Master Adam and just keep cheering for their love story.

    I enjoyed every page! Can't wait to read the next one!!!

    WOW - This is a story of true heros

    This is book 3 of a series you MUST read in order but you won't be disappointed. Adam and Karla's story is one of un-traditional love but you can't deny the bond (relationship-wise & pun intended) between these two people. I loved this story and can't wait for more from this excellent author.

    An Excellent Read

    It is a book that made me cry, made me mad, made me laugh and I love it. During the read I was able to understand more Master Adam and to see a part of Karla that I didn't think she was. I visited with old friends like Master Mark and Angie, and Master Damian and Savanna.

    Must Read!

    The genre of BDSM is definitely out of my comfort zone but I was pleasantly surprised with this entire series. There is just the right amount of steam and romance. The characters are realistic and you can't help but fall in love with Adam. I have a special place in my heart for Marines! Looking forward to Damian and Savannah and then Luke's story.

    Word of advise- read them in order. They are not stand alone books.

    I have been waiting patiently for this book to come out. It was worth the wait. This book had me smiling and crying, even at the same time. This is a full length novel. Be sure to read the first two stories first. Master Adam is so sexy!! I cant wait for Damians story. Lm

    Oh, I liked this one more than I thought I would. Even though I

    Oh, I liked this one more than I thought I would. Even though I love Adam, he really pissed me off a bit with his hardheadedness. But on the flip side, I totally understood “some” of why he was being hard headed. Karla was a strong willed woman, and even though I loved her hardheadedness, it upset me that she was willing to change so much of herself just to be what she thought Adam wanted. 

    One thing that I thought was a little strange was the ex-wife voice of reason. Also the epilogue for Adam and Karla was a little over the top. I hear dead people… But over all, I love this entire series and Im a huge fan!
