A mysterious woman crash lands in the mountains. A stranger shows up to rescue her. Can he be trusted? And should she reveal her closely guarded secrets to a man she just met? Find out in B.J. Daniels’ latest novel, Heartbreaker.



Thom Grayson is ex-military and in dire need of cold hard cash to pay off his debts. So when he’s offered a job to track down a woman who went down in a plane near his cabin, he jumps at the opportunity. The only thing is, when he finds her, she doesn’t seem to be anything like what he expected. And why does she keep insisting he call her J.J. when he was clearly told that her name is Geneva?

J.J. doesn’t know Thom from Adam. But she needs help getting off the mountain, so she follows the handsome stranger’s advice  as they begin their decent. Surprisingly, the two of them quickly discover that they have chemistry between them, but can it be trusted? Even though he’s happy to play her protector, can she trust him enough to show him the cards she’s been keeping so close to her chest? Only time will tell!

From the time we’re very young, most of us are taught to be self-sufficient so we can make it out in the world one day. However, sometimes life throws curve balls our way which totally throw us off our axis. That’s what happens to J.J. in Heartbreaker. All she wants is to pay off her father’s medical bills. But then she gets caught up in a case of mistaken identity, and suddenly she finds that she’s been kidnapped, tossed on a plane, only to go down in the Montana mountains in the middle of nowhere.

Thom’s sudden appearance seems magical, or at the very least highly coincidental and suspect. Knowing neither where she is nor his true motives, J.J. has every right to question everyone and everything. Not having much choice due to her circumstances, she reluctantly teams up with Thom to search for the very people who took her captive. Along the way, she has some pretty hard-hitting “aha!” moments, including the realization that although her life has never been easy, she can still seize happiness if she’s willing to open her heart and trust someone enough to show them who she really is.

Although Heartbreaker is structured around a case of mistaken identity, the true core of this novel is found in Thom and J.J.’s intense inner struggles. As they seek to solve a perplexing mystery, they must also learn how to let down their guards and trust another person with their hearts if they are ever to get the happy ever after they both deserve. Heartbreaker is classic Daniels, a novel not to be missed!
