WHY IS LOVE SO EASY TO DIAGNOSE... AND SO IMPOSSIBLE TO CURE?
It was Brendan MacDougal's money -- not his considerable charm -- that caused his last affair to crash 'n burn. The private and poised Dr. Rose Doeber, however, is no threat to either his position or his pride.
Not only is her reputation as spotless as her hospital whites, but bitter experience has left Brendan immune to love. At least, that's what he thinks right up until the night of the charity ball -- when passion erupts and he suddenly recognizes the tell tale symptoms.
A touch of fever, an erratic pulse, and Brendan's vital signs all say it's time to let down his guard. Behind the doctor's bedside manner there's a burning sensuality and an even bigger mystery. But what will he do when he discovers that Rose's past isn't perfect, her future is uncertain and even her name isn't her own?
