Author: Susan Carlisle
Genre: Contemporary HQN Medical Romance
Dr. Court Armstrong is running from the past, a flight that takes him straight to the doorstep of a Ghanaian hospital and Nurse Maggie Everett. Working with firebrand Maggie is a challenge Court relishes every second of, but he’s in her world now—and he’ll have to keep his distance if he wants his heart to survive intact….
Ever since I discovered the PILES of HQN category romances at my little library when I was 13 I have loved them. So when I was asked to read this book I of course said yes.
I love heroes who are running from something and end up finding themselves in the place they ran to. This is what happens with Court. From the moment he arrives in Africa, he begins to feel things he doesn’t want to.
Maggie is a woman who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go after it. And what she wants is funding for the medical clinic she runs in Africa. So when the man who turned down the funding they are in desperate need of shows up she decides to show him why he needs to fund the clinic.
What I really enjoyed about this story was how both of them changed over the course of the story, and we got to see them come together to save the life of a child they have come to love.
If you like quick reads that take you away to a new location and damaged heroes then you won’t want to miss this book.
