A knight in shining armor or just a man?
Hicks is going back to her roots-Texas. She would not be caught
dead in the Lone Star state except for one reason; she has a shot
at producing a television special. Her subject is one she could
do without also-Hero Week. A hero was someone she rated as not worthy
enough to be gum and stuck on her New York shoe. She did not believe
in the word or the men who earned that title. She had learned a
painful lesson from her dad; heroes stopped loving their daughters.
Griffin, hero extraordinaire, earned his unwanted honor after taking
a bullet for the President of the United States. His injuries were
so severe that, now after nine months of recovery, he still has
problems remembering where he parked his car. His valor earned him
a penchant for booze and caused him his marriage. Diana, the oh-so-expensive
butter wouldn't melt in her mouth when she met him, has decided
she cannot live with half-a-man. And since neither half was on active
duty with the president, she had lost all interest in him.
an almost presidential command comes down for him to be interviewed
for Hero Week, Cal is dead-set against it. He does not need some
snooty high-rolling woman producer delving into his life. Some details
were not for public consumption and he is determined to get the
interview over with and get Ms. Holly Hicks back on a plane to New
York. What he does not figure on is that his first glimpse of the
petite and lovely Holly throws his heart and his libido into chaos.
finds her hero to be fascinating. He is not at all what she expected.
His gallant and charming Texas charm pulls her in, even as he sweeps
her off her feet. When she discovers he is the only one that believes
he will make it back to the presidential detail, her heart is captured.
His struggle to regain his strength and return to the West Wing
is what truly makes him a hero in Holly's mind. And when he tells
her he is half-in-love with her, her world goes up like the fireworks
on a Fourth of July.
McBride has excelled in this book. I loved it. The hero is truly
that, a hero. His characteristics during trials and tribulations
made me want to pin a metal on him myself. Her heroine has a heart
that sought and found what makes a hero tick. The pages will fly
by as you read My Hero make you hate to turn the last page.
