Book Summary:
(Taken from Amazon)

Kathleen Donaldson is proud, 26 years old and unmarried. She's a woman of power and strength, and some even might call her sharp-tongued and bossy. That makes her an oddity in the 1800's. No matter what others think, Kathleen has adapted to her life, and most of the time she feels fulfilled and happy. But Kathleen has a secret and keeping it hidden is becoming increasingly hard to do.

Then Dr. Duncan Murdoch arrives in town. He's attractive and exotic and Kathleen feels an immediate attraction. Before she knows it, he's discovered her secret, and tells her she needs to 'spend some time with him' if she wants him to keep quiet. Kathleen knows what that means, and she's determined to find some way out of this predicament. No matter how much her own mother throws her at the gorgeous Doctor's head ... or how irresistible she finds him.

Mandy's Review:


Even though it's not the newest looking artwork, I still like this cover.  It looks whimsical, timeless and romantic.


Duncan keeps having dreams of a woman perfect for him.  He often finds himself waking up reaching for her as if she's in the bed with him.  Will he ever find her, Mrs. Right? Or will she remain a figment of his imagination?

Main Characters

Duncan - The small town's newest doctor. He's over six feet with a rockin' bod, blue eyes and black hair.

Kathleen - Petite, blond, with ample bosom and curves. She is lonely after the death of her fiance and has built a wall around her heart.


Personally, I am tiring of all romances following the same formula:
  • Man is tall, dark and handsome
  • Woman is busty and curvaceous
  • Man finds some way to manipulate woman into spending time with him
  • They have sex, fall in love and become engaged
Oh ... and ...
  • The sex is always mind-blowing
That being said, I enjoyed the story. It was well-written and a quick read. Despite being part of the overused romantic formula, I think most romance readers would enjoy this story.
