"With her usual charm and engaging storytelling Diana Gardin has once again proved why she's my new go-to author." -- #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken
For seven years he's fought for his country. Now he'll fight for her.
Army Ranger Dare Conners has been through hell. He's left combat behind, yet the memories that refuse to fade are proving just as dangerous. Ordered to take R&R, he joins his buddy for beaches, beers, and babes-if that can't cure him, nothing will. But when he meets Berkeley, a woman who affects him like no one else, a new kind of battle begins . . .
An Admiral's daughter, Berkeley knows her life has been planned since birth. The right school, the right boyfriend-and now that she's graduated-the right marriage. But after years of being right, Berkeley is ready to be a little wrong. And Dare Conners has wrong written all over him. The sexy soldier has a body built for sin and secrets he won't share. What starts as a fling quickly grows into something more. But summer can't last forever, and when the truth comes out, both Berkeley and Dare could be in for quite a fall.
"Last True Hero is the perfect escape. Diana Gardin is a fresh new voice in contemporary romance." -- Lia Riley

I read this book in 3 hours! I was hooked! I love the way she writes and how genuine all the feeling are. I can’t wait to read more!
Must read series!
This is a must read series! So much chemistry between the characters, puts you right in the book, love Diana's talent and writing!
Sexy and dynamic.
I loved this book. Diana Gardin shines with great storytelling, strong writing and a fast paced plot. I loved the main characters. Berkeley was a spitfire, showing how strong she was by putting Dare in his place right off the bat. And who wouldn't swoon over Ex-army Ranger Dare? Dude oozes sex appeal. The banter and chemistry is off the charts. I really enjoyed seeing two strong characters who have their own issues/demons, grow together. I also loved the setting of this book. As a NC resident, I could totally put myself in the town.
This wouldn't even be a complete review if I didn't say, "Oh my!" to those sizzling sexy times. Gardin knows how to write a love scene. The romance was well done and believable. I;m still thinking of the characters. Thankfully, LAST TRUE HERO is not Gardin's only book, because after I finished, I one-clicked her entire Nelson Island series. And then I bought the Ashes series, too. She's a fabulous contemporary voice. I can't wait to read SAVED BY THE SEAL, the next in the Battle Scars series.
