Title: Labors of a Hero
Series: Fairytale Fantasy
Author: Billie Dale
Genre: Romantic Comedy
The only good my parents gave me is my name, Hercules.
I turned zero possibility into firefighting hero.
Now life’s pretty simple.
After all, with classic good looks,
I'm one of Farawayville's most eligible bachelors.
But when a sassy little ER nurse enters my life, everything gets a lot more complicated.
My new goal? To get into her heart, and her pants.
She challenges me with 12, yes 12, labors to prove I’m worthy of her time.
The quest of a lifetime, for one freaking date seems ridiculous.
But one look in those eyes, and I'm all in, and hellbent in turning one date into forever.
*Inspired by Hercules
**Each book in The Fairytale Fantasy Series is a stand alone romantic comedy with slapstick humor and holy moly craziness.
Not knowing if I’d ever see her, hold her, touch her or hear her sexy voice pass through those plump pink lips again gave me insight to how a future without would be.
While my thoughts have taken me to hell and back, she’s drifted off to sleep, her slow subtle movements lull me into a restless sleep of my own.
Through a haze of water, I see her but it’s not her physical form, it’s a reflection of who she is and she’s washing away from me. She sinks into a sea of other lost souls. I dive deeper and further until the water presses on my lungs, it’s painful to hold my breath. My head’s growing light, my body begs for oxygen, but I must reach her. She needs me to get her to safety. On the last thread of my existence, I reach out plucking her misty form from the dark, reeling it into me but it’s too late I’ve withered away in the ocean of death and it’s consumed me too. As my heart pumps its last beat a line in the universe snaps sending my pulse soaring once again while my body shines with a golden light. I push, kicking my way to the top with her clutched in my arms busting through the wet surface.
A searing pain in my heart snaps me awake, drenched in sweat to realize it was a dream, she’s still with me.
The feel of your soul finding its match, knowing you can but don’t want to take another lung full of air in a world where this person isn’t in your everyday fills my insides. Call me a pussy, take away my man-card, I don’t care. For all my brains, brawn and manliness I would offer my essence straight to Hades himself to devote the rest of my days to this woman.
