International Romance

To Love A Hero

Dr. Cecile Lornier is an ambitious chemist who fought hard to win and keep her first international contract. When she travels to Belarus to coordinate the environmental cleanup, she literally starts her contract on the wrong foot as she stumbles on the broken escalator at the airport. When a muscular chest cushions her fall, she finds more chemistry than she bargains for in the arms of the handsome Major General of Belarus.

General Sergei has pledged to clean his country of the pollution left by the Chernobyl disaster. With a glass of vodka in his hand and the lovely Cecile nestled in his arms, Sergei has more on his mind now than nuclear pollution, and Cecile soon learns that chemicals are not the only things that generate heat.

The general doubts he can fulfill his mission if he surrenders his heart, while Cecile fights his chauvinistic officers to perform her contract. Can she betray his trust to
save his career? Would her love cost him everything he values?
