Please welcome Alanna Lucas! She’s sharing five random thoughts with us today about her book, Only a Hero Will Do.

What is your hero most embarrassed about?

He doesn’t know how to dance. But never fear, his best friend comes to his rescue 😉

What is the inspiration for Only a Hero Will Do?

Captain America was the inspiration for this story (Captain Grant Alexander is his Regency-era doppelgänger). I spent a lot of time researching the history of the comic book series (and yes, the movies!). It is quite fascinating.

Heroine’s favorite line in Only a Hero Will Do:

She might look the part of a viscount’s daughter, but inside beat the heart of a spy.

Music is very important to me while I’m developing any story. The top five songs on my playlist while writing Only a Hero Will Do are (in no particular order):

Stories of Old by Depeche Mode

Taking a Stand by Henry Jackman

Holding out for a Hero by Bonnie Tyler

Castle by Halsey

The Phoenix by Fall Out Boy

One of my biggest quirks — that I don’t mind sharing 😉

I like to vacuum. In fact, I find it relaxing.

Only a Hero will Do: Alanna Lucas

Defender of the realm…and his wary heart…

Captain Grant Alexander is an enigma in London society. Dashing and handsome, he coldly eschews marriage. But the ton knows nothing of his role in the Legion: to bring Typhon, the traitor who seeks to destroy the British monarchy, to justice.

When Grant is thrown together with fellow Legion member Elizabeth Atwell, he’s instantly beguiled yet exasperated by this beautiful viscount’s daughter. She has little interest in combing the marriage mart for a well-bred, well-heeled husband, but is adept at code-breaking and handling a bow and arrow. She also refuses to do as she is told, insisting she accompany Grant on his mission.

As Typhon continues to evade capture and dark forces are at work, Grant realizes he must act, not only to protect the realm but Elizabeth too…not to mention his heart, which is in danger of thawing every time she comes close…
