A woman falls for a very special guy whose super powers of kindness and compassion win her love—in #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts’s Local Hero.
Widowed just a few years into her marriage, Hester Wallace has met the challenge of raising her son Radley as a single mom, earning enough to secure them an apartment in the heart of Manhattan. She’s proven that she has the courage and the strength to save and protect her nine-year-old’s world time and again. But when it comes to her new neighbor Mitch Dempsey, she feels powerless. The creator of Radley’s favorite comic book superhero, Mitch is as charismatic and confident as anyone fighting for truth and justice in a cape and cowl. And he has the uncanny ability to capture Hester’s heart.
