Romance Reader

In reply to an earlier post on May 27, 2010 7:07:58 AM PDT
Thanks Deanna. I believe I have read that one. Its a good book:-)

Hey Romance Lover,

I am quiet happy with both mainstream and erotic romance. So feel free to suggest whatever you can think of. :-)

No, I was actually asking about the B. Delinsky book you mentioned :-)
what is its sensuality level ?

I don't like books when the sex is "behind closed door" - so I want to know before I order it ..

oop sorry, Its definitly not an erotic romance. Its a mainstream Harlequin romance but I would definitly not call it "behind closed door". :-))

RaeAnne Thayne = Dancing in the moonlight (SSE)
Rachel Lindsay (aka Roberta Leigh) = Wife for a year (HP)

If U want the reverse (heroine = doc / hero = patient) :
J.R. Ward = Lover unbound

I highly recommend "Playing Doctor" by Lori Foster. It's in the anthology "When Good Things Happen to Bad Boys". He's an oby/gyn. Nothing kinky or weird. It's really good and smoking hot as far as the bedroom scenes go.

RR can you give some spoilers on Straight from the Heart? What's it about? There's not enough info here on Amazon for me to know if I want to order it. I like this theme too.

Thankyou so much everyone for recommendations!!! please keep them coming. My TBR pile is growing steadily.

Wendy, Straight from the heart is about Heather Cole who has an heart condition and she meets Cardiologist Dr Rob McCrae because of it, however she does not reveal her condition to him till later in the story. What I loved about the book was that her heart condition took a center stage in the story. It creates the reason for conflict between the two, when Rob tries to manipulate her to take some tests which Heather was reluctant to. However it also bought them together and Rob shows incredible support in helping Heather face up to her condition and go through open heart surgery.

It is an incredibly sweet love story and both characters are fairly well etched out. I am sure you will love it.

This is a great thread. A lot of recommendations for me to put on my wish list! The Heartbreaker by Maddie James doesn't exactly meet the patient criteria but again, it does, because the doctor does end up treating the heroine's backside when his kid brother shoots her in the butt with a BB gun. LOL That's how the book opens. So, I'll throw it out there anyway. It's just been released on Kindle and probably another couple of weeks for paperback. Here's the blurb:

The Heartbreaker is back in town. But whose heart will get broken this time?

As athletic director for the Parks Department, Lucki Stevenson spends most of her time coaching unruly teenagers instead of giving her heart a much-needed pep talk. And when all-grown-up, boy-next-door, Dr. Sam Kirk moves back to town, Lucki wants to forfeit the game of love completely! Sam broke her heart once before, and she won't give him a chance to do it again...

Returning home to care for his younger brother J.J., after his mother's death, Sam is happy to accept Lucki's expert advice about kids-and even happier that the tomboy he remembers is now a beautiful woman. When Lucki agrees to help him with J.J., Sam is sure he's on the road to success as an instant parent, and possibly as a husband-but first he's got to convince Lucki that he's not the heartbreaker he once was, and that good guys do finish first...

Instant Gratification by Jill Shalvis
This was a pretty good read. The h is the doctor from the big city. She is running her father's clinic out in the country while he's recuperating. H gets treated by the h when he gets banged up at his job.
