After shying away, procrastinating, hesitating, I finally set my own blog. While I brainstorm interesting posts, let me introduce you to my books.
My debut book TO LOVE A HERO is available at Cerridwen Press.
Raised in boarding schools, Cecile buried her loneliness under long hours of study and work. On the rebound of a broken engagement, she is determined to excel in her first international contract, the refurbishment of an environmental laboratory in Belarus.
BUT… In Belarus, a Russian country dominated by male chauvinism and intrigues, Dr. Cecile Lornier finds more chemistry than she bargains for.
Admired by men and adored by women, Major General Sergei is a true hero in his country. The widowed Sergei has pledged to clean his country of the pollution left by the Chernobyl disaster.
BUT… With a glass of vodka in his hand and the lovely Cecile nestled in his arms, Sergei has more on his mind now than patriotic duty and nuclear pollution, and Cecile soon learns that chemicals are not the only things that generate heat. Can she betray his trust to save his career? Would her love cost him everything he values?
Mona Risk writes heroes with heart, heroines with spunk in stories and settings that are simply unforgettable!

To Love A Hero is an intriguing romance set in an exotic locale.
-- Beth Trissel--
A wonderful contemporary romance with an independent, likable heroine and a to die for military hero, set in the exotic and facinating setting of Belarussia. I couldn't put this book down. From the first page when the heroine falls into the hero's arms on a broken escalator the sparks fly between the two main characters. The author blends the romance with an exciting plot that keeps the pace of the story fast. One of the best contemporary romances I've read in a long time.
My second book FRENCH PERIL, a Romantic Suspense, has been accepted for publication at Cerridwen Press.
What could be more exciting for a young architect than to live in a French chateau owned by a young count and to work on the restoration of a chapel in the Loire Valley? When her professor is poisoned because he knew too much about a missing statue, Cheryl's summer job develops into a dangerous treasure hunt.
Count François, a confirmed bachelor and admitted womanizer, wants to redeem himself in his family’s eyes. The unearthing of the statue and the restoration of the chapel would revive tourism in the area and bring back prosperity to his villagers. But Cheryl’s arrival complicates both his search for the statue and his determination to avoid serious involvement.
