Dr. Cecile Lornier is hired to help establish a chemical lab to aid the Belarusians in cleaning up their environment. As soon as she steps off the plane in Minsk, she's awed by the majestic setting and nearly crashes into the Major General of Belarus, Sergi Fedorin. Sergi is immediately taken with Cecile, and she with him.
As Cecile embraces the project, eager to prove her worth to the Belarusians, Sergi makes his interest known. Despite her better judgment, Cecile falls for Sergi's charms and mixes business with pleasure. After a night of passion, the new lovers realize they'll have to keep their affair a secret if they want the clean-up project to succeed. It's a secret that isn't easy to keep as Sergi's nemesis hounds him and Cecile to the point of breaking. Pressure builds not only from outside forces, but from internal sources as Cecile believes her and Sergi's worlds might be too far apart to make things work between them. Can Cecile and Sergi embrace the flames of love they've ignited, or will they be forced to put their relationship aside to keep their project from failing?
Risk writes a sharp, contemporary romance that grabs the reader as soon as Cecile sets foot off the plane. "To Love A Hero," is an apt title; the hero, Sergi Fedorin, is admired by the people of Belarus and he desperately desires to clean up the county's environment.
The plot is solid. The international setting is intriguing. The pacing is pitch perfect, slowing down at the right intervals so the reader can get a deep breath before accelerating again.
Risk's love scenes are graphic and tasteful, capturing the deep feelings Cecile and Sergi have for each other. Cecile is a likable heroine and her flaw is her biggest strength - her dedication to those things she believes passionately in. Sergi is a man who captures a certain nobility even though he isn't.
"To Love A Hero," has a nice, original twist in that it's set in Belarus, a country that isn't heard of much. This romance is an exotic escape that will have the reader breathless as they turn the page.
The scientist falls for the General. He is a widow, his wife died of cancer. Cancer seems to be wiping out the whole country and the General is convinced the soil is contaminated and causing the cancer and he wants to get it cleaned up. He is very dedicated to his people and country.
I really got tired of all of the long titles on every person, Minister of Internal Affairs, then every time he comes on the scene, we get his title again. It just seemed like a lot of dialogue that was pointless.
It is told that if the General is caught having an affair with the American, it could ruin his career as well as hers so there is a lot of slipping around. His ex-father-in-=law is a total Russian ass and former KGB, after him, and wants to see him ruined because of jealousy and who knows what else motivates him.
Just boring. I did quit reading, the General is getting ready to start an affair with the heroine and I couldn't get up enough excitement to read on and see what happens. The whole thing was slow. One reviewer said the first part of the book was slow but it gets better. I don't think I want to invest that much time in it. Just not for me.
