Deirdre Savoy has definitely done it again!! "Holding Out for a Hero" is Samantha Hathaway's story. Samantha is the friend of Ariel from Ms. Savoy's book "Spellbound." Sam is attractive and an accomplished movie star. She has had love in her life, but nothing to compare with the sexy, charming Adam Wexler, who is surely Sam's hero.
Drastic events have taken place in Sam's life, including the death of a close friend, who was also Sam's ex-fiance'. Ironically, Billy Prescott, was not only Sam's ex-fiance', but unknowingly to Sam, Billy was also Adam's half-brother. It was after Billy's death that Sam and Adam come together and their lives are never the same. Sparks fly, but they are not at first from flames of love. However, the flames are not allowed to smother and they burst into red hot fire. Sam and Adam realize that indeed their attraction is from their love for each other. Adam has made a decision to do all he can to protect Sam, even if it is with his life. In every sense, Adam is a hero, not only because he is a detective and has been in positions in the past where he had to be a hero, but because he has come to be Sam's special hero and love of her life. Adam is what Samantha has been waiting for and holding out for in her life -- her one true love and hero.
Very good book. Thanks again, Ms. Savoy.
