Nic Starr reveals the beautiful cover art for the next book in her HEROES series titled ANDREW’S PROMISE.
It releases on August 12, 2015, published by Dreamspinner Press.
Young mechanic Andrew Campbell’s life couldn’t be better. He is about to restore a Ford Mustang with his dad before heading off on the ultimate cross-country road trip with his best friend, Tanner McKenzie.
But tragedy strikes, and Andrew’s life is shattered. Worried his family will be torn apart if he doesn’t step in, Andrew makes a tough choice between following his heart and doing what he needs to do to protect his little brother.
When Andrew pushes Tanner away, Tanner heads off on the planned trip alone. Once Tanner leaves town, his life takes a different path and it’s ten years before he returns. Now a firefighter, he’s never forgotten his first love, and no one has ever taken Andrew’s place in his heart. He’s determined to see if Andrew feels the same way. He just hopes Andrew’s excited to see him, hopes that he’s available—and finally out—after all this time.
They might not have been ready to deal with emerging feelings years ago, but now might be the time for their second chance at love.

“Mmmm,” Tanner replied through the mouthful of food.
“I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate everything you’ve done. Josh too. We’re both really grateful that you’ve been around to keep us organized. It’s been great not having to worry about all the little things.” He paused and rubbed the back of his neck. “Anyway, I just wanted you to know that I appreciate it, that’s all.”
“Whatever, man. It’s no big deal. I’m happy to help out.”
“I know you are.” Andrew looked at his friend and hoped Tanner could see how genuine he was. “I just don’t want you to put your own life on hold. I’m sure you’ve got better things to do than to run around after Josh and me.”
Tanner wiped his mouth with his napkin, then grinned. “Maybe. Or maybe I like spending time with you and Josh.”
“Hey.” Andrew reached out and put a hand on Tanner’s. “I mean it. I don’t want to be a burden, and I worry that you’re putting yourself out. You shouldn’t be held back by us. Hell, I won’t even be able to go on the trip. You have to start planning the trip without me.”
“Hold on a minute. I think you’re moving too fast. You don’t need to make any decisions yet. There’s—”
“Ha!” Andrew pulled his hand away. “I know you’re trying to make me feel better, but be realistic, Tanner. Even if money wasn’t a problem, I can’t leave Josh, not even for a week, let alone six months.”
Tanner gave him an understanding nod and leaned in closer. “At the moment, yes. But that doesn’t mean you have to rule it out forever. You can’t give up on all your dreams. Maybe just put them on hold for the moment.”
“It’ll be a pretty long moment. Listen, Tanner, let’s be pragmatic. I won’t be going anywhere, not for years. You need to start thinking of your future, of getting out of here and seeing the country—hell, seeing the world. I want you to.” Andrew felt his eyes fill with tears.
“You’re not getting all mushy on me, are you?” Tanner said with a sad smile.Andrew sat up straighter and blinked, forcing a smile onto his own face, one that mirrored Tanner’s. “What? Me? Mushy? No way. Not a hope in hell.”
