I have the entire set of Wellesley Brothers books by Jane Kidder and found them to be thoroughly enjoyable. She doesnt get involved with a lot of farfetched villains. Just plain stories about relationships. Put a man and woman together and give them an impossible situation, add sexual tension and humor.
This book opens with a woman doctor coming to a town and a hero who doesn't think it a proper vocation for woman. I enjoyed this and it may be my favorite of the Wellesley Brother series but then again it was the fist I read. So I may be biased.
Dr. Rachel Noyes was proud of her newly earned medical degree and eager to begin her job as physician to a rough and ready frontier town, but the people of Stone Creek, Kansas made it clear right away that they'd expected a man. It was hard to hold her head high when the townsfolk declared they'd rather drive fifty miles to Wichita to see a real doctor, but harder to bear was the cold sholder she got from Sheriff Seth Wellesley, the handsomest rogue she'd ever seen. Somehow, she'd find an opportunity to examine those rippling muscles, feel those brawny arms around her, and wipe that frown off his face with a fierce, burning kiss. Seth Wellesley couldn't believe it when the petite but well endowed gal stepped off the coach holding a medical bag. No self respecting man in town, himself included, would let himself be examined by a mere woman. Seth didn't need this new problem, just as he was finally about to track down the notorius Brady gang and bring a little peace and quiet to Stone Creek. But when he looked into Dr. Rachel Noyes's deep blue eyes and imagined the rosy flesh beneath her prim traveling dress, he decided that a mutual physical examination might be a fine idea. Before he sent her packing, he'd give her a lesson in male anatomy. He'd caress every inch of her body, stroke her velvety softness into submission, then soar with her to the heights of sensuous rapture.
