A writer of contemporary romance novels, along with paranormal fiction as well, Canadian author Dale Mayer has been writing for a number of years now. Known for her highly distinctive and idiosyncratic voice, she is a well established voice and presence on the literary scene. Creative and confident, she knows her audience and her market extremely well, as she understands exactly what it is that she wants to say. One such series is that of her ongoing ‘Heroes For Hire’ collection of novels which follows the romantic lives of men serving in the armed forces. Working as an offshoot spin-off series of novels to the well regarded ‘SEALs Of Honor’ franchise, this is set in the same universe. Bringing in many recurring characters, it uses a lot of the same themes and ideas as that series, allowing it to build and develop.

Totaling nine titles so far and counting, this is a spin-off series that very much lives up to the previous work of Dale Mayer as an author. Each book is considered as a title that is firmly ‘A SEALs of Honor World Novel’, that being where they stand in her overall backlog of work. Living up to the premise, she doesn’t fail to deliver either, as they each work on their own as stand-alone titles, as well as offering a more finely developed universe as a whole.

Rhodes’ Reward

Brought out through the ‘Valley Publishing Limited’ publishing label, this was set to be the fourth title in the ongoing ‘Heroes for Hire’ series. Providing another stand-alone edition that’s set in the same universe as the previous novels, it’s a great addition to the overall franchise. Not only that, but it also provides unique and distinctive characters all of its very own, ones which resonate with the readers.

Featuring many of the themes and ideas that are typically associated with contemporary romance, this provides its own unique spin on the genre. Relating universal ideas and narratives, it appeals to a large audience, with it reaching readers from all corners of the globe. With characters and situations that are easy to relate to, along with also providing a sense of escapism, Mayer allows her readers to live vicariously through the protagonist. The characters themselves are extremely well drawn, providing the ideal gateway in to this enticing and exciting world that Mayer has created. With the female lead Sienna she is a strong and independent character who is assertive and confident, having grown out of being slightly awkward and geeky. The main love interest himself though, is that of Rhodes who is a strong and resourceful individual himself, and the perfect foil for Sienna. Set in a series of exotic locations as well, it manages to convey a sense of excitement and danger too, as it essentially transports the reader to far-off destinations. Knowing and understanding her story well, Mayer is able to perfectly visualize the settings through her vivid and highly detailed descriptions. Allowing the reader to dive right in, the locations almost become characters in of themselves, as they are integral to not only the narrative, but the style as well.

Knowing her since she was young and ever so slightly gawky, Rhodes had always been close to Sienna. Now fully grown up, she always had something special about her, and she’s always had an eye for her brother’s best friend Rhodes. Now she has been asked to help out on a job, something which could get the both of them into a whole lot of trouble. Will they both live to see another day? Can they ever live happily ever after? What will become Rhodes’ reward?

Harrison’s Heart

Released once again through the ‘Valley Publishing Limited’ label, this was set to be the seventh title in the ongoing ‘Heroes for Hire’ series. Originally brought out on the 11th of July in 2017, this provides another adventure and romance in much the same vein as the previous titles. With some surprises and twists of its own though, it manages to develop the series overall, taking it in a new and interesting direction.

With a lot of similar ideas to the previous novels in the series, this will be familiar territory for many of Mayer’s more regular readers. Following the common tropes and themes of contemporary romance, this manages to once again take it on its own unique path. This allows it to stand out from the rest of the franchise, giving it a sense of character, something which is reflected in the story itself. Featuring a different coupling this time, many of the characters themselves are also fairly similar to the previous novels, but different enough in their own way to stand-out from the rest. Harrison is the leading male protagonist who takes charge in his own inimitable way, dealing with his own personal demons, trying to always do the right thing. Zoe on the other hand is also always striving to get things done, being a highly ambitious and extremely driven individual throughout the course of the novel. With a wide sense of scale and breadth again too, this also takes place in a variety of different locations akin to the previous books.

After the shooting of a senator it is down to Harrison to step-up following a call from the father of Ice. With the wife of the senator having been beaten, along with their kids being left feeling lost, Harrison really has his work cut out for him. Then there is Zoe who is on her own mission, as she looks to escape dark forces that seek to put an end to her apparent meddling. Can they help each other? Is there hope in restoring order? What will become of Harrison’s heart?

The Heroes For Hire Series

Any fans of the ‘SEALs Of Honor’ series will be equally well served by this quality franchise from Dale Mayer as well. Delivering what only she does best, it combines characters that resonate with engaging and witty stories that are accessible as they are entertaining. With more titles set to follow in the future, this looks set to be a series that will continue for some time to come, as it continues to grow from strength-to-strength.
