Book Description

Have you ever fallen in love with the wrong person—or the person who feels he or she is wrong for you?


PRAISE FOR NOBODY’S HERO:

With each new book Ms. Masters is weaving great stories for her Masters and making me fall in love with each couple. Karla and Adam are definitely my favorite, especially after this ending, but it definitely makes me want to read about Damián and Savi. (Amanda, Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews)

~ ~ ~

You show a higher level of respect for military details than any romance author I have read. As a retired Navy spouse, I really admire and respect you for the extra care you take with your writing. (Kathy Holtsclaw, retired Navy spouse)

~ ~ ~

This story made me laugh and brought tears to my eyes as Karla and Adam struggle through issues that most of us have. I love that these characters are portrayed as average humans and not perfect fantasy beings. Adam has his flaws…. What’s important is how he overcomes and adjusts to those as he learns what they are…. (Star, BDSM Book Reviews)


BOOK DESCRIPTION:

NOBODY'S HERO is the continuing romantic journey of Adam and Karla, which began in MASTERS AT ARMS & NOBODY'S ANGEL.

Retired Marine Master Sergeant Adam Montague has battled through four combat zones, but now finds himself retreating from Karla Paxton, who has declared war on his heart. With a significant age difference, he feels he should be her guardian and protector, not her lover. But Karla's knack for turning up in his bed at inopportune times is killing his resolve to do the right thing. Karla isn't the young girl he rescued nine years earlier—something his body reminds him of every chance it gets.

Their age difference is only part of the problem. Fifty-year-old Adam has been a collector of lost and vulnerable souls most of his life, but a secret he has run from for more than three decades has kept him emotionally unable to admit love for anyone. Will Karla be able to break through the defenses around his heart and help him put the ghosts from his past to rest? In her all-out war to get Adam to surrender his heart, will the strong-willed Goth singer offer herself as his submissive and, if so, at what cost to herself?


ABOUT THE RESCUE ME SAGA: The books in the ongoing Rescue Me Saga are not stand-alone stories and should be read in order. Characters will recur in later books to deal with further issues in their lives as the saga continues and each book builds upon all previous ones. Sometimes main characters even need another book to help resolve major issues affecting their relationships.


BONUS MATERIAL in this version: Kallypso Masters has added the PLAYLIST of music that inspired her as she wrote about the first three couples mentioned in this combined volume, as well as a GLOSSARY OF TERMS and a CAST OF CHARACTERS in these books in the saga.


CONTENT WARNING: Intended for mature adult readers not offended by profanity and graphic (but never gratuitous!) sex scenes. Due to the emotional way in which the author presents the subject matter (past and present), the books might cause triggers while reading. Please read the Author's Notes at the beginnings of each book before reading further.


Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Kallypso Masters writes emotional, realistic Romance novels with dominant males (for the most part) and the strong women who can bring them to their knees. She also has brought many readers to their knees—having them experience the stories right along with her characters in the Rescue Me Saga. Kally knows that Happily Ever After takes maintenance, so her couples don’t solve all their problems and disappear at “the end” of their Romance, but will continue to work on real problems in their relationships in later books in the saga. Kally has been writing full-time since May 2011, having quit her “day job” the month before. She lives in rural Kentucky and has been married for 30 years to the man who provided her own Happily Ever After. They have two adult children, one adorable grandson, and a rescued dog. Kally enjoys meeting readers at national romance-novel conventions, book signings, and informal gatherings (restaurants, airports, bookstores, wherever!), as well as in online groups (including Facebook’s “The Rescue Me Saga Discussion Group”—send a friend request to Karla Montague on Facebook to join if you are 18 or older and don’t mind spoilers. Kally also visits the Fetlife “Rescue Me! discussion group” regularly). She hopes to meet you in her future travels whether virtually or in-person!

5.0 out of 5 stars Right On Mark December 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read lots of BDSM fiction books(100+ probably) some i liked,some i didn't. This book is the only one i deemed necessary to write a review.

Since i read Masters at Arms a while ago i was waiting for this book.

All characters in the series are likable but Karla was my favorite since the moment i met her at the first book. For me, Kallypso really proved her Mastery as an Author with this book.

Unlike most BDSM romance books these days, this book is satisfyingly long and not one line goes to waste. 4$ is a very low prize for such quality art. I'd have paid 5 times as much without any regrets.

This is something i noticed when i read romance series. Most of the time after a few books in series characters starts to blur and merge and i start to feel like each book is just a copy of previous book with only names and places changed. Judith Mcnaught is a great example of this. I read 3 of her books. After that i decided if i wanted to i could easily write a fourth one by myself... There are a few variables in her books like names, places, time. They change with each book but everything else stays constant(even eye colors. In every book i read there was someone with grey eye).

Cherise Sinclaire's shadowlands series is also a little that way. While with each book heroines change, after first book i started to notice heroes weren't changing. Different names, different jobs, slightly different look(tho for whatever reason all the male leads are over 6 feet. Guess in order to be a member at shadowland you have to be longer then 6 feet :) but their personalities was pretty much the same. Fortunately it looks like she is gonna break the loop with her next book(with Master Sam).

Now with Kallypso Masters...

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional and Hot February 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Nobody's Hero
by Kallypso Masters
(Rescue Me # 3)

Dear readers of this review:

WOW! If you have not read this series, do yourself a favor and pick it up. If you like a tortured hero, and sometimes tortured heroine as well, with plenty of an emotional story along with your very hot sexy scenes, then this is the series for you.

~ Francesca

I've been waiting for this story since book one when we get our first taste of Adam and who just then was a teenager, Karla. I thought this would put me off being that he is 25 years older than her and at that point he had just lost his wife to cancer, but by the end of book one I couldn't help but want these two to get together....badly!

Karla is now 25 years old and the singer at Master at Arms, the kink club that Adam owns. He's 50 now and he keeps telling himself to stay away, that she's just a kid. But things happen and their platonic relationship turns physical. *fans self* Ohhh the things I learned with this book! There's chains, rope (Adam is very good with rope), tying, hanging, and a lot more! Even what I now know as orgasm torture ;)

But it's not all roses between them. Adam has a lot in his past that he has to deal with. I don't expect him to resolve his issues in this one book because they're all major issues to have and to overcome but I can happily say he's taken that first step towards happiness.

Karla also learned that she can't just be Adam's slave but she has to be herself, which was all a learning experience for her and I think she's doing amazing dealing with this new lifestyle.

There's also a new development between Orlando and Savi. Oh the torture to wait for their book next!!! I can tell it'll be a tearjerker.

I could not put this book down. Seriously! Once I started I am not sure I even wanted to eat or sleep! When I read the first book ,Masters In Arms, I wasn't sure if I could get over the age thing, but after about 25% of the book, it became a non-issue to me. That's out of the way.

Retired Marine Master Sergeant Adam Montague has fought so many battles both in the Marines and outside. It is now nine years after his wife, Joni, has died. He thinks he has gotten over her death, but finds he can not love anyone and has never said the words, even to Joni. Now a woman 25 years his junior is turning his eye and he feels like a dirty old man because of it.

Karla Paxton fell in love with Adam when she was sixteen, when he saved her from a thug pimp trying to assault her. She professes her love to Adam who politely turns her down and goes back to war. Now nine years later, she is dealing with the loss of her brother and instinctively goes to Denver to find Adam, only to audition to sing in the BDSM club he owns.

Now singing at night, she pours her heart out to him in songs while he tries to avoid anything to do with her besides be a fatherly figure. But when a Adam saves her from a cougar attack, she decides she has had enough and declares war on getting Adam to notice her as a grown woman who loves him. But Adam is a dominant and she doesn't know if she is a submissive or can even be his slave like Joni was.

Incredible! This book blew my mind away. It had me crying, laughing, panting and wanting to bash Adam up the backside of his head! Adam has a lot of baggage besides loving a woman 25 years younger that he has to deal with in the book. There is some PTSD from war, a bad family life, dealing with the death of a wife who was his slave in a TPE lifestyle.

More About the Author

SPECIAL NOTE FROM KALLY (Dec. 10): If you opened your copy of NOBODY'S LOST and found the contents were of NOBODY'S HERO (book 2 in the saga) rather than the new book about Ryder and Megan (as it should be), please contact customer service and request an update. You can't even be sure that you'll get the corrected copy by looking inside or at the sample.

The Amazon team is working on fixing our mistake. It's just taking longer than any of us expected. Please, I ask for your patience. It's frustrating for you and extremely upsetting for me. Amazon thinks they will be able to get the correct book to everyone within a day or two.

All I can say is try again every 12 hours until you can sync and then open the book and the title page says NOBODY'S LOST, or that you see a Prologue is in the table of contents. (The wrong book didn't have a prologue.)

Thank you for your patience. This all started with me just wanting to fix some last-minute mistakes I found and give you a better copy. But I've learned my tendency to improve the book up to the last minute doesn't work with Amazon preorders.

And once we get all this sorted out, we're going to party on Facebook (16 authors, lots of prizes, and six hours to engage with us). Join us from 5-11 p.m. EST (New York City time). International readers are eligible for ALL prizes! The link is https://www.facebook.com/events/588220737977797, but if that doesn't post here, just search for Kallypso Masters & Friends' December Mega-Release Party on Facebook.

NEWS FROM EARLIER:

GOOD NEWS! NOBODY'S LOST (Rescue Me Saga #5) is LIVE!

The Dec. 9 release NOBODY'S LOST is a full-blown novel. I thought I could write a novella, but I guess not! The book is available at Amazon for pre-order (search for B00PHUL0WK).

If you have friends not sure they want to try this series, NOBODY'S LOST will provide them with a new entry point into the series. Yes, unlike the other books in the Rescue Me Saga, THIS IS A STANDALONE NOVEL! Be sure to tell your friends, but also remind them that book one in the Rescue Me Saga is free if they'd like to give the saga a try!

Despite the fact that NOBODY'S LOST is shorter than my other books, trust me that it is packed with the emotion and the deep connections you've come to expect between characters (and between readers and the characters) while reading my books. AND there will be a Happy Ending! I do NOT give you cliffhangers in my Romances.

For those wondering about NOBODY'S DREAM, I'll begin working on revisions again in early December and will be putting up a preorder for the book soon, too. My bout with cancer and the subsequent surgery slowed me down on finishing that one, but I'm feeling stronger than ever and am ready to tackle it just as soon as I finish revisions of NOBODY'S LOST.

The first four books in the Rescue Me Saga should be read in order as follows:

MASTERS AT ARMS & NOBODY'S ANGEL (Rescue Me Saga #1), FREE (496 pages in the paperback version--primarily about Marc, Angelina, Luke, Adam, Karla); most recent update April 2014

NOBODY'S HERO (Rescue Me Saga #2), $4.99 (376 pages in paperback--primarily about Adam, Karla, Damian, Savannah/Savi); most recent update April 2014

NOBODY'S PERFECT (Rescue Me Saga #3), $4.99 (472 pages in paperback--primarily about Damian, Savannah/Savi, Marc, Angelina, Adam); most recent update April 2014)

SOMEBODY'S ANGEL (Rescue Me Saga #4), $4.99 (508 pages in paperback--continuation of Marc and Angelina's romance, with character development scenes in the heads of Adam, Karla, Damian, Savannah, Luke, and Cassie, too! Most recent update April 2014.

Coming next: NOBODY'S LOST (a standalone novel about Megan Gallagher and Ryder Wilson). And then sometime in early 2015: Luke & Cassie's romance, NOBODY'S DREAM.

Kally enjoys meeting readers, although plans for 2015 are to hunker down and write more books, including starting a spin-off series about Angelina Giardano's firefighter brothers.
