"Amazing first foray into contemporary/action genre."

Owen Loughman has been pulled out of a mission and
helicoptered back to his father's ranch to find his aunt
and uncle dead and recently. He has no problem with seeking
out the killers and he knows how big it's going to be when
his brothers are also pulled out of their missions and
arrive soon after him; Wyatt a Delta Force member and
Cullen a Marine. The biggest shock comes when the girl he
loved and left behind drives up and he finds she's in the
middle of this mess. He had played THE HERO and left her so
she would be safe, so she would have a good life ... so he
wouldn't have to lose another person he loved.
The last thing Natalie Dixon wanted is to see Owen again.
Fourteen years ago he had just walked away from her and it
had taken forever to get over him. What a laugh ... no
matter how hard she tried there was no getting over the
love of your life, but she's not going to let him back into
her life. No matter how much her heart and body ache for him.
Now thanks to the Loughman clan and her own curiosity there
is a hit on her and the Russian's have no problem going
after her. All that stands in their way is the man who left
her behind and never will again.
THE HERO is a compelling, complex read. As a first
contemporary/action book for author Donna Grant I have to
say she has laid out something that will keep readers glued
to the pages. At first it took a bit to get the feel for
the characters, figure out their past, but as the reader
reads on it all becomes clear and you feel for
these "boys". The romance between Owen and Natalie is slow
moving at first but considering there are 14 years to be
made up for and forgiven for, it is to be expected. I must
admit that at times the dialogue seemed tedious to me, but
I chalked it up to world building and allowing us to get a
more in-depth look into brothers.
Another thing that I did enjoy and seemed quite different
was getting glimpses of their father, Orrin, and his
situation, which I cannot tell you about ... as you might
guess that would be a big spoiler.
THE HERO is a book filled with heroes; three brothers
trained to defend and protect; a heroine who isn't about
to back down, bad guys who are really bad and a love that
just won't die. For a first foray into this new genre I do
believe readers will love this book as much as Ms.
Grant's "Kings" if not even more.
