In Hero Forgotten by SaraLynn Hoyt the heroine, Abigail Blakemore, comes from a family with a long line of supernatural capabilities; hers is that she can communicate with the dead. As the book begins one of the recently deceased, Dara, is trying to rouse Abigail so that she can meet her husband, Kent.
When Kent and Abigail meet, there is an intense sexual attraction, which may be due to the elixir that Abigail’s cousin, Marty, has provided. So the romance (in this case lots o’ sex) takes off at a blazing pace.
In between scenes of passion (aka lots o’ sex), there is a mystery that also keeps the reader entertained. As the mystery unfolds, Hoyt’s writing and plotting prove to be quite good, but like the encounter between Kent and Abigail, this takes place at lightning speed so you’ll find yourself at the end before you realize it.
Hero Forgotten is a novella that tries to accomplish a lot. As far as being an introductory book to a new series it does well and one hopes that in the context of a much longer novel that the promise of supernatural, mystery, and romance will really come together for the reader.
On the heat scale this is probably a 4 1/2 out of 5, with the narrator even acknowledging the “naughty” and “taboo”.
I received this novella from NetGalley for an honest review.
