Welcome to Dakota’s Delight, book 9 in Heroes for Hire, reconnecting readers with the unforgettable men from SEALs of Honor in a new series of action packed, page turning romantic suspense that fans have come to expect from USA TODAY Bestselling author Dale Mayer.

When a young woman darts into traffic and into Dakota’s path, life takes a dark turn for both of them.

Bailey, recovering from the loss of her husband, retreated from life. Going to work and coming home was the extent of her days and weeks. Until she walks into work early one morning, witnesses a murder and flees into traffic, nearly getting killed.

The near death experience awakens the spark of life inside of her. So does the man in the car. A different kind of a spark.

For her safety, Dakota persuades her to move into the compound with him and the rest of the Legendary family while they track down the killers.

Bailey is forced to accept Dakota’s help. But can she stay safe long enough for the police to track down the killer? Or is the man who almost ran her over going to steal her heart?

My Thoughts:

Dakota Languor works for a business thats more like family than a plain old day-to-day job.  You can tell how much he cares for the people he works with.  Bailey Hoskins shows the toll a personal tragedy can take on someone.  I went through something similar and can understand what she went through.  Both of them are stubborn but Dakotas stubbornness is a good thing.

What I love about this series is that each one can be read as a standalone.  So if for some reason youve missed a book you can pick it up later and not feel lost.  Dakota shows how the company has grown so that may be one incentive to catch up before many more books for this series come out.  If you love military reads that may be another incentive to give this series a try.

In this book, I wanted to know more about how Bailey got to be where she is and how shes going to fit in with the group that make up Legendary Security.  You want to know more about what makes this group tick.  How they came to be and how well they work together as a team.  Theres no way that you cant miss how much they care.  Its all about good versus evil and good must win or at the very least make a dent.

Romance is nice and thats what Im all about but with this series Id rather have the action, adventure, and suspense any day.  I want to see how these people go about protecting each other and those that they let into their little group – which grows with each subsequent book.  Theres a character, Alfred, who tends to stay in the background but hes the glue when the group is together.  Just a warning though – when Bailey ends up helping Alfred in the kitchen plan to get hungry.  I could almost smell what she was cooking – ending up making my stomach growl so I had to get something to eat to get it to stop.  So you see, the book has a little bit of everything that will keep you entranced.  The ending was happy but what made me happy is the fact that the Epilogue gets me ready for the next book in the series.


Dakota’s huge fear was that the perfect woman would walk by and that he wouldn’t recognize her.
He was the epitome of the All-American boy – muscled, tanned.
He wanted to reach over and hold her hand steady, letting her know she’d be fine – he’d make sure of it.
She looked at him. “You can’t fix it. And I’m not putting anybody else in danger.”
“That might’ve been the worst morning of your life,” he said with a gentle smile, “but running into me will make a shady day a great deal better.”
“I don’t even know you,” she whispered. “You don’t know me. Why are you taking care of me?”
“When we get home,” he said. “There I’ll be happy to show you how perfect you are. We are…forever.”
