Mace, youngest of the Carson brothers, is perfectly content to leave romance and marriage to his two older brothers, Slater and Drake. He’s happy with his vineyard and boutique winery. And just because he sees no reason to expand his operation doesn’t mean he won’t take a meeting to discuss just that.

Ten years ago Kelly Wright was attacked on her college campus and in the nick of time a passerby intervened, saving her life. Now, on her way to what could the most important PR meeting of her career, her car suddenly goes out of control and she careens down a ravine to land precariously on the edge of a cliff. Once again someone is there, just in time, to rescue her. Both times her rescuer was no other than Mace Carson.

Finally, safe and sound Kelly and Mace sit down to discuss what she can do for his winery.  But there is so much more between them. Sparks fly between them that set them on a course neither ever expected. But when someone from their past arrives in town will he destroy their future before it can even begin?

I’m normally a big Linda Lael Miller fan and while FOREVER A HERO wasn’t a bad read, it wasn’t my favorite.  The story seemed to wander—as if the author wasn’t sure how she was going to get Kelly and Mace to “happily ever after”.  The story came across as choppy and at times disjointed. When it came to the stalker there were gaps in what he was doing and how he got where he was.

That said, I do like how Miller ties into prior stories in this and earlier series. You do not have to have read the earlier books because Miller gives just enough back story so you know where each person fits in to the “family” is makes up Mustang Creek. I will say that the resolution of how the stalker was captured was well done.  
This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
