Overview

Exhausted by the futility of her efforts against the city's endemic problems and the revolving door of violence in her Chicago emergency room, Dr. Miranda Campbell came home to Wishful, where she knew she could make a real difference in people's lives. Between her clinic, a rotation in the hospital's ER, volunteer work at the new women's shelter, and time spent with family and friends, her life is full. But it's not too full to notice a sexy lawman when she sees one.

Former US Marshal Ethan Greer is still settling into the job as Wishful's new Chief of Police, but he's starting to realize it may be years before he'll ever be considered one of the locals. Fair enough. He's the first to admit that making the shift to small town policing is a big adjustment. After losing his marriage and almost his life in line of duty, the slow pace of Wishful is a change he's happy to make.

While Miranda's and Ethan interest in each other is mutual, he's not sure about taking on a serious relationship. That's just fine with her. But when Miranda is targeted in an escalating chain of threatening events, Ethan's Marshal instincts go on overdrive. Miranda's rose-colored view of Wishful is putting her in danger. She's become more than a casual fling or a job responsibility. With Ethan's training screaming at him to put her in protective custody, can he find out who's behind the threats before he pushes Miranda away?

Author Interview


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.

Two people who had been hurt by love and too busy for romance but the chemistry was strong. Chief of police and the town doctor the perfect recipe for romance. Add revenge, vandalism, and kidnapping. Together you have an excellent story.

This is a great small town story about 2 people who have no interest in romance being drawn together. It has the right amount of romance, suspense, mystery and danger. The characters are interesting and have plenty of chemistry and spark. The action and mystery will keep you turning pages. This had my interest from start to finish and I can recommend to anyone who likes small town romance with a little suspense thrown in.

I fell in love with the Wishful Series a long time ago. Kait allows us to revisit this magical town over and over again which we are all grateful for since we all want to live here! This new series shows that like reality there is a darker side to Wishful which Kait portrays so dramatically. Definitely a page turner! I have been waiting for Miranda's story since the very first book and Kait did not disappoint because Ethan is such a perfect fit for her!

Nolan ups her game with Can't Take My Eyes Off You. This is the next in the Wishful series and is my current favorite. Chief Greer and Dr. Miranda Campbell are struck by their intense and immediate attraction to one another. They quickly join forces to battle domestic violence and small town policing. The chemistry between them smolders before taking off into a true romance. When Miranda draws the attention of a stalker Ethan will do whatever it takes to keep her safe. Wishful is a place I enjoy returning to with each addition to this series and I highly recommend a visit with this next in series. I voluntarily read and reviewed a complementary copy of this book.

I really enjoyed this book. As with all of her books, the love story was compelling and kept drawing me back so I could see what was going to happen next. One thing that I found different — but in a good way — about this book was how many other smaller plots were also going on around the main characters. Because I’m a fan of the series, I love hearing about what the other characters in Wishful are up to after their love story concludes, and also seeing other stories before their individual story begins, and it seemed like there was more of this in this book than normal. I enjoyed that.

Kait Nolan is my favorite Romance Author!! In “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” she has stepped it up a notch, and seamlessly woven Thriller level Suspense into her story. Suspense creeps in quietly in the opening pages, and when it kicks in full throttle this story becomes a don’t-interrupt-me-no-matter-what Page Turner! And there’s more! Plenty of steamy romance that cements the hot chemistry between the Police Chief and the Town Doctor, Ethan and Miranda. I love Kait’ Small Town setting for her stories. Although this is a standalone novel, you get to enjoy the townsfolk from previous books in the series and know you’ll be seeing them again in future stories. Delightfully, it’s never obvious which characters will the H/h of the next book; it’s always a delicious surprise to discover whose story is next. Great Read!

I just love the Wishful community Kait Nolan has created. The characters you've already met and loved are still in the story as they relate to the newest couple. I find these new Romantic Suspense stories make the story fly by and keep me engaged. Miranda is back home in Wishful practicing family medicine after a stint in Chicago as a trauma surgeon. Ethan is the new chief of police looking for a slower pace of life than his time with the US Marshalls in Dallas. They make a strong and interesting couple. Not without their set backs and misunderstandings. **SPOILER ahead** Their previous careers are pivotal in providing for their HEA. Ethan must find and rescue Miranda when she's kidnapped and Miranda must use all her training to save him when he's shot trying to get her out. I look forward to more Wishful stories. Kait creates characters that keep you coming back to Wishful and wishing you lived there too. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This book combined romance and suspense and I could not put it down once I started reading it. Miranda and Ethan were meant for each other but their busy work schedules and prior relationships made them both hesitant to admit they wanted their relationship to grow. Suspense was there throughout the book not only wondering if they would ever realize they loved each other but also by the vandalism surrounding them and the desire to figure out "who done it." Another success by Kait I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Can’t take my eyes off you- Kait delivers again. I loved Miranda and Ethan romantic and suspenseful tale. I enjoyed that she has cameos of other wishful beloved residents. I’m enjoying the suspense aspect of the hero series. I’ve read all most all of Kait’s books and loved them. A must read.

I say this with EVERY Kait Nolan book but...THIS IS MY FAVORITE!!! Miranda and Ethan deserved to have their story told and to find each other. This is a great book and I just wish that I could live in Wishful, it's my favorite place to be, always!!! Read this book, read the series, read EVERYTHING by Kait Nolan!!! 5 stars PLUS!!

This is how I want to see romantic suspense written. There are so many twists and turns that I was constantly re-evaluating my suspect list. I’m proud to say that my first instinct picked the correct villain, but I doubted, and I waffled, and I second-guessed myself. I adore a mystery that doesn’t allow me to outthink the plot. I have been impatiently waiting for Miranda’s story since the very first book about Wishful. Ethan looked like he was going to be an interesting person to get to know when we first met him in the first Hero book. I don’t know that I would have expected these two to be paired together, and yet it works brilliantly. And there is something just so… righteous… about a member of the Casserole Patrol being on the receiving end of the meddling in her love life. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.

What a story! I enjoyed Ethan and Miranda's story. Ethan is a new addition to the town of Wishful. I liked the little bit we learned about him in earlier stories. But he is a great hero character. Miranda has been one of my favorite characters and I've been looking forward to her story. The two had instant chemistry. I enjoyed seeing their relationship develop. There were enough twists and turns in the story to make the mystery part of the plot interesting. I really wish I could live in the town of Wishful! It has a lot of people I like! Kait Nolan has built a wonderful community of interesting people. I always look forward to the next one! I received an advance copy for an honest review.

**Spoilers** Can't Take My Eyes Off of You is the second full length novel in the Wishing for a Hero series by Kait Nolan. As such, it has an added layer of suspense to the traditional small town romance. Ethan is the new to town police chief and Miranda is the town's resident doctor. It was interesting seeing the male lead being new to town, as I believe it is one of the books that Kait as written which as this characteristic. As far as Ethan and Miranda's relationship goes, they appear to be on even footing, although their interactions did have an uncharacteristically brusque quality to them, I haven't yet decided whether it was refreshing or off putting. I do think that the romance was a little shorted by having the suspense aspect of the book, and it did not have the added benefit of being built up over time that Autumn and Judd enjoyed. Also, all of the Wishing for a Hero stories have similar climactic scenes, with the heroine being kidnapped, causing the novel to seem formulaic at times. Overall, it was a sweet story that add elements of the small town vibe and action thriller, and definitely was emotional, succeeding at being a tearjerker.

ARC for honest review with no compensation. 4.5 stars Can't Take My Eyes Off You is book 3 in the Wishing for a Hero series by Kait and as always it's well written, suspenseful, laughter, great character and finding love! Miranda, a doctor who decides to come back home to Wishful to start her own practice seems to have rose colored glasses for her hometown because nothing bad ever happens in town like all the stuff she saw in the big city. Until she decides to tell off a former high school classmate and then small things start happening and soon escalates to more than vandalism. Ethan a former US Marshall and now Wishful's new police chief and wants to prove that he's ready for small town life. When he meets Miranda the sparks fly but they have differences of opinion when it comes to seeing the good in people. When things start happening to Miranda his spidey senses pick up that things will escalate and he needs to keep her safe but can he do that and keep his heart locked up? Love his small town!! The more you read about Wishful the more you want to go there...

Wishful is a peaceful little town, but lately bad things have been happening to Miranda's property. Miranda is the new doctor who has moved from the big city for a much quieter life. That's where Ethan comes in. Ethan is the new Chief of Police who has moved from the big city himself after he and his comrades in Blue have had too many "close calls." Ethan needs to figure out who is trying to hurt Miranda and why. Miranda is too self sufficient to need a man and Ethan is still too hurt from his recent divorce. However, they both begin to feel "sparks" when they are with each other. This book has a lot of twists and turns; mystery; romance; and a reunion of old friends. In reading the book, I found myself "holding my breath", laughing, and anxious to figure out the mysteries myself. It is pure entertainment and made me happy to visit Wishful again. This is the third book in the Wishing for a Hero series. Even so, this can be read as a standalone I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A fun, intriguing novel! I just love the stories about Wishful, and this one is no exception! Featuring our favorite doctor and the new police chief in town...it's full of humor, romance, with a bit of mystery! Please note: I was gifted a copy of this book, all opinions are my own.

I absolutely loved this book. I have been curious about Miranda’s story since we met her in Norah and Cam’s book To Get Me to You. This book made me laugh out loud in places, made my heart pound in others, and made me feel satisfied that the characters got everything they deserved. Fabulous! Kait Nolan is brilliant at engaging readers in the main characters while building upcoming characters. The mystery in this book was well thought out, and it was fun to experience both Ethan and Miranda’s thoughts/feelings. I also love that we caught up with characters from previous Wishful books. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romance and/or an interesting mystery. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Kait does not disappoint with her latest, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You. This book offers some romance and some mystery in a small town setting. I love romances and mysteries, so when you combine them, its a win win. I like to try to figure out the who done it.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Reading Kait Nolan's Wishful books is like getting together with friends. From one to another, you wonder what is going to happen to so and so. I can hardly wait for the next installment/book. Miranda and Ethan are great examples. You meet them both in previous books and wonder when a book is going to tell their stories. This book does and I'm so glad I read it. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Usually your cowboy rides into town on a horse, swoon over seeing him ride in. Instead you meet your cowboy in the emergency room with an arrow in his buttocks! And what a nice buttocks that is! He’s the new sheriff in town ( more like the police chief) and he’s only been wishful for four months! The romance buds between Dr. Miranda Campbell and Ethan Greer. Hoping for a more laid back lifestyle Ethan leaves his job as a Texas Marshall to come to the small town of Wishful. But now who is stalking his new love Miranda and how far will this stalker go to even his score? Sparks fly in more ways than one! What was Miranda thinking by not taking these threats seriously?

Miranda and Ethan are both in professions that help others so they have that in common. They also don't think they want a serious relationship but.... Immediate attraction leads to more quickly but can they stick with their "let's just have fun" attitudes? This is definitely a romantic suspense book with Miranda in the center of it all and Ethan wanting to keep her safe. This is a rather spicy romance IMO. If you enjoy romance, mysteries, and spice then this book is for you. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

It's hard to explain just how good the Wishful books are. Kait Nolan creates interesting characters with real life problems and puts them in real life situations where, even though they get their HEA, it's not always easy and it's not all rainbows and unicorns. Miranda and Ethan have both left bigger jobs and bigger places for new lives in Wishful. Starting over. Giving themselves a break from the lives they had. My only problem was how oblivious Miranda seemed to be to the danger she was in. She used to live in a very large city where she was a surgeon who saw the aftermath violence constantly, but she didn't see what was happening to her. I CAN somewhat overlook that though because she had moved to a safe place, or so she assumed. Even so, it was a great book.
