Real American Heroes

The male lead in a romance novel is traditionally called a "hero," whether he's done anything to deserve the title or not.  Granted, publicly 'fessing up to love is a pretty heroic act for any guy, but let's face it, some so-called romance "heroes" have never risked anything scarier than a well-waxed dance floor.  Sure, they look good on the cover, but... heroes?  Really?

There's no question about the guys I'm showcasing this month!  These men are more than good manners or a nice set of abs; they're heroes in every sense of the word.  In honor of the upcoming holiday, I've chosen men (and women!) who make a career of putting their lives on the line in the defense of our country. 

They serve in the armed forces, or as federal agents at home or abroad.  They're marshals, or rangers.  They're cops or sheriffs.  They're firefighters.  They protect, serve, and defend, placing the welfare of others before their own.  They're warriors, and they're darn good at what they do... especially when the battle is for the heart of the one they love.

Better Than Google

LearningExpress Library is one of the most valuable databases we have.  In my opinion, it is an undiscovered treasure that every patron should know about and use often.  You will find it on our business database page, and also on the students page, and sign in with your New City library card.
  Whether you are a fourth grader who needs extra help in math, a college graduate preparing for the GRE, or looking to acquire or refresh computer skills, LearningExpress is the place to go.  The database is made up of e-books, courses, and practice tests.  In the comfort of your own home, or the library, you can learn new skills, and polish up old ones.
