When a fellow RN jokingly predicts that Beth Roberts will meet a tall, ripped and totally lick-o-licious stranger who will fulfill her deepest desires, it’s supposed to be from across a crowded room, not giving CPR to a wedding guest. Given her tragic love life, Beth has no desire to become involved again, but who could have predicted the ponytailed doctor with the mischievous smile would break through her defenses?
Dr. Gabriel North blamed himself for his wife’s death. Now, after two years of battling guilt and meaningless hookups, he’s ready to move on. When he sees the sexy brunette at his friend’s wedding, his attraction is swift and strong, and he wastes no time in pressing his advantage. One night with the woman who makes him feel alive again isn’t enough, but gaining her trust as a man was going to take more than medical school had prepared him for.

Now that might be my new favourite word. Jan Meredith sure knows how to put a girl in the mood for dressing up as a sexy nurse and playing doctor. And boy, were there some very sexy cases of playing doctor in this story.
Beth Roberts has been through more than her fair share of trauma, losing both the husband she loved and the child growing inside her to abuse. She’s wary of letting loose and having some fun. But following the advice of her best friend, she decides to go for it when she’s out of town for the weekend. And who wouldn’t let loose when you meet Dr Gabriel North? Yowza!
A tortured soul, a man who still feels guilty for the death of his wife, it’s clear to all that the love he had for his deceased wife still ran deep in his veins. But as he sees Beth, he can’t take his eyes off of her and this is where things start to get interesting.
This is a beautiful story filled with passion and sexiness. It differed from the other novellas by pulling the reader in and taking them on a short, yet tumultuous journey. The only thing wrong with it , is that it was so short.
