Sharing an excerpt today from Last Man She’d Love.

In this, Lyna is trying to make a decision. Guy is being his usual languidly sardonic self 🙂

 ………

 ‘I could remind you, but being a gentleman, I won’t.’

She choked and spluttered into laughter.

He was shaking his head in deep regret. ‘See you have forgotten how to laugh properly even.’

‘I was laughing at the thought of you being termed a gentleman,’ she derided.

‘Taken as a good hit.’ He put his hand over his heart and took a bow. ‘Though there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do to keep you, I have to acknowledge that you’re leaving, so your last wishes should be respected before you sacrifice yourself on the altar of matrimony.’

She sat down slowly, her heart beat increased by a factor of ten per minute as she weighed the situation for the last time and drew in a deep breath. She put her forearms on the desk and leaned forward, looking into those dark eyes fringed by thick lashes. ‘What you just said about doing anything to keep me at work. Do you mean that?’

He leaned back, just a fraction of tension in his frame. But Lyna decided she had imagined it because his voice was as relaxed and his tone as lazily sardonic as ever. ‘Sure. Are you about to do me the felicity of flinging yourself into my arms? I knew old rhino would never succeed in taking you for seven rounds of fire religiously.’

‘We were going to have a court marriage,’ she said.

His eyebrows went up as he sat up, the foot whose ankle had been resting on his knee coming on the carpet with a muted thump. ‘Were?’

She sighed and rubbed the back of her neck. ‘Yes. I’ve had to give a rethink over everything.’

‘You finally saw enlightenment because of my advice? No, I don’t think so.’ His eyes narrowed. ‘The pregnant lady got her way with you, did she?’

‘What do you know about her?’ She glanced suspiciously at him.

‘Nothing.’ He shrugged. ‘I saw her take the elevator as she left your office. She wasn’t here to get a job, so… Putting two and two together. Just elementary reasoning.’

He paused, then asked, ‘What about your company – the one you were so set on?’

‘It’s not that – as – important as this is. I’ll have to drop the idea.’ She avoided his gaze. ‘Good thing I hadn’t given my notice.’ She attempted to say it lightly, hoping he wouldn’t pick up the strain in her voice.

‘For Gayatri Productions, it’s a day to celebrate. Well, I can only offer my services. In what way might I aid the damsel?’

‘By reining in your overactive imagination?’ Lyna said somewhat tartly. ‘Sorry, but it’s hard to picture you as a knight in shining armor.’

‘Yeah, I know, too blatant,’ he agreed gamely. ‘I think matt is more my thing. Probably black chrome would be a good look.’

She gazed at him, chin propped in her hand, an expression of rapt admiration in her eyes. ‘You’re really unbelievable.’

‘Not at all, my lady, I aim to please.’

…….

A short blurb:

#Review The Courage to Love Her Army Doc by Karin Baine

The Courage to Love Her Army Doc by Karin Baine is a medical romance from Harlequin.

The heroine, Dr Emily Clifford is a dedicated medical professional who has been oversensitive about her birthmark all her life because of a bad parent. Her failed marriage makes her even more emotionally scarred. She seeks refuge at a beautiful Fijian island where she takes her medical skills but is surprised to find another doctor already there. Dr. Joe Braden has his own personal demons to fight.

One of the hallmarks of the book is that it is thoroughly researched. The medical and cultural backgrounds are firmly blended together to form a realistic picture. I liked the portion about dengue and what the author put in as dengue remedies because the disease and the remedies are quite prevalent in India and shows how much thought author has put in the research.

Emily is vulnerable yet strong. Damaged hero Jason is worth drooling over. Both are confused by their mutual attraction and even more complicating is when her brother comes to learn of it. The author has handled it sensitively. When they get stranded on the island, Jason’s determination yet uncertainty about saving them from storm makes him very human. Emily learns new strengths as the book progresses and how she overcomes her weak self image forms the crux of discovering romance.

All in all, a well written and tender romance.
