Lana has just become head of research at West Central Hospital
and has barely become oriented to her new position when she is confronted by
Braden on her first day. She has not seen him in six years and it is
disconcerting to see him again. To make matters worse, he is pulling their
research grant on a particular migraine study. She is trying not to fail the
hospital the way she feels she failed Braden. But seeing him again stirs up all
her old feelings, which she is determined to keep under wraps.
Although Braden came personally to the hospital to pull
the grant, he also planned the trip as a way to make peace with his feelings
for Lana. Once that was accomplished, he could go on to marry the woman he is
presently dating. But he never expected to be conducting business with Lana.
After an evening business meeting and a shared kiss, he is certain she is the
only woman for him. But can he convince her that they can deal with anything as
long as they are together?
An absolutely delightful
story, THE DOCTOR’S FORMER FIANCEE, the second book in author Caro Carson’s THE
DOCTORS MACDOWELL trilogy, is a heartwarming, contemporary romance that I could
not put down. This is a very romantic story of two deeply in love people who
need to overcome many issues, including a six year separation, if they ever
hope to find happiness together. A workaholic, Lana feels guilty about the
miscarriage she suffered six years earlier and believes that Braden will
realize he made a lucky escape when he finds out her part in the ordeal. But
this is just one of the issues facing these two. The one area in which they
have no problem is their passion for each other.
An unplanned pregnancy,
miscarriage, expectations, guilt, forgiveness, healing, romance and true love
all combine to give readers an unforgettable story. I absolutely loved this
story and cannot wait to read the next installment of this amazing series. Ms.
Carson is a new to me author, but I will be watching for her books in the
future. Do yourself a favor and check out THE DOCTOR’S FORMER FIANCEE for
yourself. I am sure you will love it as much as I did.
