While vacationing in Crete, English miss Caroline Huntington is injured horseback riding. She is taken to a local English doctor Alex Trentham since she is suffering an injured arm and has a concussion. Alex absolutely resents her presence but assists her and keeps her in his home for only a few days while she recuperates.
Alex is a mystery to Caroline. He is a skilled physician but not practicing medicine and will not reveal why he has abandoned his calling. He is in Crete to assist a French archeologist and had never intended to treat anyone's illnesses on the island.
Due to her injuries, Caroline must stay in Crete longer than anticipated and at first she is angered by her circumstances. Caroline was way too stubborn and unrealistic about her own healing process. Alex checks on his patient daily and this leads to a blossoming romance. The island of Crete as a backdrop to this romance is quite original. Caroline and Alex explore the island, its culture, food, ruins, caves, and even its sparkling blue waters together. Alex tries to keep his distance but Caroline is charming and sensuous. (BTW Most of the intimate encounters between the leads on this island are in interesting places.)
Caroline knows she must return to London as she has an orphanage she wants to build and her uncle is in the process of adopting her and giving her a sizeable inheritance. However Caroline has a cousin who has zero desire to see his father adopt her as he needs the full inheritance.Read more ›
Alex is still wracked with guilt over something he did while he practiced medicine when resided in England. All he longs for is peace, but with an English miss like Caroline running all over the island and getting into trouble, he has no choice but to keep an eye on her. As Caroline recovers, she finds Alex to be a very confusing and harsh speaking man. She doesn't want to spend any more time in his company and can't wait to leave so she and Maggie can continue on to Malta. But, Caroline is still not fit for travel. Alex won't allow her to go and after he finds her another companion, a Miss Pen Briggs, to stay with her while Maggie ventures off the island, Caroline relents. Alex is very masterful in getting what he wants and when it comes to Caroline's health, only he seems to know what's in her best interests.Read more ›
A bit of a shame, really, as I had high expectations after having read another - and much better - book by this author.

I usually love this genre but the heroine was as dull as dishwater. I would liken her to a cross between Melanie from "gone with the wind". Read morePublished on May 10, 2011 by vix espana
