Fyodor Vassilov is a Russian surgeon and an officer— Jillian Burton is an American pediatrician on a mission to improve medical conditions in Belarus. Jillian blames herself and her ex-husband for their son’s death—Duty demands Fyodor provides a mother to his four little boys. She has lost her illusions about men and marriage—He has to marry a woman who loves children and big family.

When they work together for six months in his hospital, their fascination with one another shocks them both. Can attraction and love overcome guilt, duty, and a clash of cultures?


Prescription in Russian is a fascination contemporary medical drama/romance. We don't have enough of these in the romance genre. The setting is in Russia, the characters are very well crafted, and the plot lines that weave various threads in the story are amazing. I enjoyed reading about Jillian and Fyodor. To blend different cultures and make it work as well as Mona Risk did takes skill.

I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys contemporaries. Let yourself get entwined in the lives of the medical staff in Russia. Their day to day struggles are so different than what we face here, and it makes the story so believable and many can relate to the characters featured in this story.

This is my first time reading this author, and by the amount I enjoyed this book, won't be the last.
