The Troubleshooters return in the latest thriller from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann! Some Kind of Hero showcases Brockmann’s signature white-knuckle suspense, romantic twists, and sexy Navy SEALs.
Navy men don’t come tougher than Lieutenant Peter Greene. Every day he whips hotshot SEAL wannabes into elite fighters. So why can’t he handle one fifteen-year-old girl? His ex’s death left him a single dad overnight, and very unprepared. Though he can’t relate to an angsty teen, he can at least keep Maddie safe—until the day she disappears. Though Pete’s lacking in fatherly intuition, his instinct for detecting danger is razor sharp. Maddie’s in trouble. Now he needs the Troubleshooters team at his back, along with an unconventional ally.
Romance writer Shayla Whitman never expected to be drawn into a real-world thriller—or meet a hero who makes her pulse pound. Action on the page is one thing. Actually living it is another story. Shay’s not as bold as her heroines, but she’s a mother. She sees the panic in her new neighbor’s usually fearless blue eyes—and knows there’s no greater terror for a parent than having their child at risk. It’s an ordeal Shay won’t let Pete face alone. She’s no highly trained operative, but she’s smart, resourceful, and knows what makes teenagers tick.
Still, working alongside Pete has its own perils—like letting the heat between them rise out of control. Intimate emotions could mean dangerous, even deadly, consequences for their mission. No matter what, they must be on top of their game, and playing for keeps . . . or else Pete’s daughter may be gone for good.

Brockmann's reliably sexy Troubleshooters contemporary romantic thriller series continues with this fun, vivid 17th installment (after Do or Die). Lt. Peter Greene is living in San Diego with his teenage daughter, Maddie, having recently gained custody of her after her mother's death. Maddie is sullen and resents having to live with a father whom she barely knows. She doesn't realize how much he cares about her, and eventually she runs away. Peter turns to his neighbor, writer Shayla Whitman, a single mom to two teen boys. As she helps Peter look for his daughter, sparks fly, and Peter realizes that he is interested in Shayla as more than just a friend. After they hook up, he's bemused by her suggestion that their relationship is only about sex. The passion and suspense continue unabated as Peter and Shayla travel across California searching for Maddie. While Shayla reaches out to the girl over e-mail, Peter enlists the help of his SEAL teammates. As always, Brockmann excels at depicting both lusty lovemaking and the genuine camaraderie of friendship.
