Zane MacAllister is living the high life.  This hot, popular actor has an Oscar nomination under his belt and has recently been named People's "Sexiest Man Alive."  Then tragedy hits.  His ex-girlfriend commits suicide making Zane, who feels responsible, fresh meat for the media.  With a heavy heart, Zane escapes and begins making his way for home but along the way meets Roan O'Hara.  Roan looks physically and emotioanlly worse than he does if that's possible.  In an effort to remain incognito, Zane tells her his name is Hal.  What does it matter, right?  After he helps her to her cabin he'll be on his way with Roan none the wiser.  Well, that's before "Hal" gets a look at Roan's home.  He realizes without help, she'll never survive winter in this place.  His brothers all have exotic jobs that prove a man's character and now it's Zane's turn to find the hero in himself.   

For Roan, every day is a test.  She works to get through each one without drowning her guilt and heart ache with pills or alcohol.  Roan is a former addict determined to stand on her own.  And if ever there was a reliable man to lean on, it's Hal.  He tempts her in ways that test the limits of her strength.  But her recovery is a journey she'll have to make alone, no matter how much she wants Zane by her side.  And what will happen when Roan discovers she's fallen for Hollywood's sexiest man?


This is the fourth installment in Jean Brashear's "Deep in the Heart" series and that's exactly where A REAL HERO hits you--deep in the heart.  Brashear beautifully gives you characters who are very human in their struggle for forgiveness.  The author isn't affraid to step over the line and give readers a unique hero and heroine with pasts full of mistakes and heart break.  A very emotionally charged tale!  I can't wait for the next in this amazing series!
