Out of the frying pain, into the fire of desire...Isabel McKenna couldn't imagine anything worse than the misery that chased her away from Edinburgh. Now she wishes she hadn't allowed a broken heart to make her impulsively take the first job that presented itself.Pediatrics was easy compared to dealing with the prima-donna attitudes of the doctors in County General's operating theatre. The cold gray eyes of anesthetist Dr. Michael Blakeney make her blush hotly—and nervous a single mistake will bring him down on her like a ton of bricks.Digging deep into her personal well of Scottish grit, Isabel is determined no man—especially no arrogant doctor—will ever again shake her composure. But when she glimpses a hint of lonely vulnerability beneath his steely eyed exterior, she finds herself all too ready to respond as a friend...and a woman.This Retro Romance reprint was originally published in 1986 by Mills & Boon.

She thought she'd left her troubles behind...until they follow her to paradise.As a nurse midwife, Samantha Roberts's ear is finely tuned to the subtle changes in a newborn's cry that could signal trouble. But there's one voice she'd gladly tune out altogether, if she could.It's humiliating enough the whole hospital knows the doctor who strung her along for four years recently dumped her.

It's bad enough his brusque manner rubs her the wrong way. Now he says he wants to reorganize her already efficient system in the department.Just who does Giles think he is?

She's in line to be promoted soon, and in due course she and her fiancé, Rupert, will walk down the aisle and start a family in her inherited stone cottage. Her future looks quiet, predictable, safe. If it's a bit lacking in the romance department, who is she to complain?The new surgical consultant on the ward, Greg Lincoln, is certainly shaking things up—and shaking her composure when a puddle of spilled milk sends both her and Dr. Tall, Dark and American landing in a tangled heap.From that moment, Greg is a pain in Abigail's well-ordered routine...and a breath-taking monkey-wrench in her plan to settle for a less-than-exciting life.
