The Heart of a Hero by Susan May Warren
Jake Silver may not be able to put the memories of his time as a sniper and Navy SEAL behind him, but at least he can put his skills to use as a part of the Jones Inc. rescue team. Saving the life of pediatric heart surgeon Dr. Aria Sinclair on Denali helped too.
Publisher’s Description: Jake Silver may not be able to put the memories of his time as a sniper and Navy SEAL behind him, but at least he can put his skills to use as a part of the Jones Inc. rescue team. Saving the life of pediatric heart surgeon Dr. Aria Sinclair on Denali helped too. Now he can’t get her out of his head, and when he hears she is in the path of a hurricane down in Key West he can’t help but jump on a plane to rescue her.
Aria has dedicated her life to helping children born with defective hearts. After all, she was one of those children. Now driven to succeed, she lives a lonely, stressful life. One she would have lost on Denali if it hadn’t been for Jake. Jake is exciting and handsome, but he’s also dangerous, and she’s already lost one person she loves. She can’t bear it again.
It’s not until she finds herself trapped in the middle of a category 4 hurricane that she can admit she needs Jake desperately. With their very survival in the balance, can they hope for a second chance at life . . . and love?
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says…
This book is part of a series. Although I read #2 before #1, I was fairly ok guessing at the story line but it might serve better to read in order. This is a Christian romance, which means a romance that includes God and religious leaning. There is no sex, not much violence and ends with a happy ending.
Since I’ve not read book #1, I am unclear on some of the characters, but what I am sure of is that I need to read #3 when it comes out. The writer made me care about these characters. There was action and parts that made me stop and think about what I would do if I was put in their situation. The whole book felt like a non stop marathon. I started and it was hard to stop.
Though this is a christian romance, I did not feel like religion was foisted upon me. It was more like warm thoughts and caring for the characters for the other characters involved.
The premise of the book was simple. The heroine had a “moment or two” in book one and then the heroine felt embarrassed and ran away. The hero felt so much for the heroine, he went after her. To tell you the truth, I’m not sure I would have if I was him. Anyway, it was good for her that he did chase her, because she really needed the help. Yes, she is a tough and independent woman, but this was a very serious situation that she was in and she took responsibility for others. The two of them worked together and even though it was a book, I could feel that their connection was a good one.
I enjoyed this book. The story wasn’t dark or scary like a psychological thriller. It was simply two people taking care of others while they tried to survive themselves.
