    My Review by Joanne, BMR Reviewer: Dr. Scott McIntyre is a surg

    My Review by Joanne, BMR Reviewer:

    Dr. Scott McIntyre is a surgeon specializing in heart transplants; a man so totally dedicated to his profession and to his patients that he has pushed a personal life out of existence except for an occasional hookup. He realized his complete dedication made it impossible for him to share his life with someone as he wouldn’t be able to give enough of himself to make a relationship or a marriage work. He watched his father, also a physician; destroy his marriage because he could not devote one minute to his family if it meant taking time away from his patients and his career. Scott’s mother cried when she heard he wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps – not from happiness but out of fear that he would end up like his father. After his parents divorced, Scott’s mother became more and more obsessive towards her children and wanted constant attention from them. When she couldn’t have every minute she wanted, she tried to kill herself and Scott blamed himself for not doting on her. Although he saved her life, she blamed him especially for her unhappiness. So he has decided to go it alone and not cause another woman pain and unhappiness.

    Hannah Quinn is a nurse who knew Scott McIntyre when he was just an intern and knew of his reputation as a player. But working together created a deep friendship and one that Hannah wanted to continue into a relationship. When they finally took that step, and made love, Scott realized that he couldn’t give Hannah what she wanted. He made a commitment to himself that he would never marry and Hannah wanted the whole package. So he walked away and she never heard from him again. Until…….Hannah is now a single mom with a two year old son, Jake, born with a defective heart. Her husband left them when he couldn’t handle the pressures of a sick child and left Hannah totally on her own. She had to give up nursing to take care of Jake. Now he was getting worse and needs to have a transplant. Hannah’s consultation at the hospital with the best in the field brings her face to face with Scott! The connection is still there…..and the chemistry is still there…..but Hannah hasn’t forgotten what Scott did to her and anyway, she has to worry about only Jake now. And Scott is totally flabbergasted; not sure what to do or say but his only concern at the moment is Jake. He has to save Jake’s life. But they can’t stay away from each other, no matter how hard they try so now they have another problem to deal with – each other!!

    Author Susan Carlisle lived the experience of having a child with a defective heart and uses this experience to write a heart-wrenching story of love and loyalty. She describes fully all the procedures a child and his family must go through to obtain a new heart and to successfully live through the transplant. We suffer with Hannah as she sits hour after hour in the waiting room, praying that her child will live and that she will be able to care for him. And Scott watches her too, wishing he had someone to feel for him the way Hannah does for her son. And he wants to give Hannah all the love that has been bottled up inside of him all these years but doesn’t know if he can separate his career from his private life. Can two independent, self-sufficient, proud people, filled with passion, love and loyalty find their way to each other?

    Thank you Ms. Carlisle for sharing your story with us through Scott and Hannah and showing us the many ways that true love can win.

    I give HEART SURGEON, HERO...HUSBAND 5 out of 5 stars
