“Plenty of heat and tenderness...The subplot...meshes perfectly with the romance, making for a well-rounded story.” —Publishers Weekly

Dr. Sarah Baxter is an internist who works in Amesport. She started college at 12, finished her PhD at 21 and her residency in internal medicine in Chicago at 24. She has never quite fit into the world around her socially or emotionally but she uses her brilliant and logical mind to try to make sense of everything, even things that defy reason like hormones, sexual attraction and love. She becomes Dante's doctor when he arrives in Amesport. They clash at first. He refuses to listen to reason about what he needs to do for healing, and while she empathizes with his loss, she can't understand why he won't thrive and survive for Patrick's sake, if not his own.
Given time, their attraction grows stronger and Sarah refuses to give into it due to patient/doctor ethics. Dante gets around that by seeing another doctor for his medical needs and seeing Sarah for all his other needs. Dante has already decided that he wants to show Sarah all the things she might ever want to know about the pleasures of sexuality that she doesn't believe are true when he finds out that she has her own dark past that has caught up to her in their little home town. A killer that stabbed Sarah dozens of times at her hospital in Chicago has followed her to Amesport, broken into her home and destroyed it, and wants to finish the job he started. Dante, being the strong alpha-male he is, takes Sarah into his protection and home. From there the suspense and the hot attraction both explode. Incendiary sex scenes and dangerous plot twists follow. I don't want to ruin what I know you will enjoy reading, so I'll leave it at that!!
This is another great book, and the third in this family of 5 siblings (Grady and Hope have stories already and Jared is next). It makes a fine stand alone book, but there are a few times you get to see previous characters you loved and meet upcoming characters we're sure to learn to love.

I enjoyed the start of this book, the introductions of the characters and the opposing styles the author had when writing for the characters thoughts and feelings. The blurb gave hints of the mystery to Sarah's past and given the attention to detail given to the beginning of the book I was looking forward (as the reader) to Dante's deductive process and the slow unfurling of the mystery. Unfortunately, they have sex straight away and almost instantly the interesting and unusual writing style evaporates. Dante doesn't have to investigate anything, and the mystery I was anticipating is never there as Sarah spills all. After this moment we have several lengthy scenes where he does nothing about the sudden threat except escort Sarah home from work and have sex, stay in inside and have sex, go to dinner and have sex...to be honest I got so irritated every time they started undressing each other I skipped the two or three pages they were at it desperately looking for the rest of the advertised story. There are no scene's dedicated to a squad-room, or out beating the bushes looking for the perp, not even any mild threat made against Dante's home to keep up the suspense. Just a couple of lines here and there to say time had passed with no new evidence and signs...Just pages of sex. I lost all interest in the book when the perp finally does resurface who suddenly declares himself to be serial rapist and murderer that had never before been mentioned to the reader, though the characters seemed to have heard all about him and his terrible crimes against countless women all across the US. If the author was aiming to cause a shock with this overly dramatic turn, it failed to inspire one in me. I was left with the impression that the author, now they had run out of sexual positions, suddenly remembered they had misplaced a vital piece of the story, and in a desperate attempt to not make John look like an afterthought over embellished his marginal input. Of course John dies from a brave and foolish attack made Dante but I was beyond swooning over the detective by this point who seemed to feel that the only way of protecting Sarah was to keep her in his house, flat on her back with her legs open. I stopped at this point, well able to guess the routine choked out 'I love you' scene either made on his driveway, or at the airport when he is going back to his job in LA, would mean Dante would settle and marry Sarah and take the local police job....But only after they had had their 'don't ever leave me' or 'I can't live without you' make up sex. I like romance books, and sex has it's place in them, but I also enjoy a well told story be a mystery, a paranormal, a thriller, or anything really...But I found no story here.
So don't be deceived by the subheading of "The Sinclairs Book 1". There is a book before this one that details the meeting and romance of Grady and Emily. I don't have that one, so now I'm going to have to buy it because of my own personal foible about having completed sets. But don't worry, this story can be read as a standalone book and yes, it does have a HEA.
This is the story of Dante, a LA cop who is injured in the line of duty. He travels to Amesport to recover from his wounds and the lost of his partner who died while they were hunting a serial killer.
His doctor, Sarah has been assigned to monitor his recovery and rehabilitation. But Dante is more interested in her ability to heal his heart.
But he soon learns that Sarah has her own trauma to deal with and that includes being frightened of hospitals. But why?
Can Dante move on from the death of his partner, can he protect Sarah from a past that's doing its best to catch up and hurt her. Will Sarah become the strong woman she wants to be? You will have to read the book to find out and I definitely recommend that you do. Until next time, enjoy peeps 😉
Sarah Baxter is a young doctor assigned to Dante's care and recovery. And on first meeting he thinks she is his babysitter but likes her ass. She admires his physique. Interestingly, Sarah is attractive and very intelligent. She is now just twenty seven and was a child genius/prodigy with a IQ of one hundred and seventy.
Dante reluctantly accepts Sarah advise to take his pain medication and she rejects his attempt to have a relationship with her. That is until her whole house is suddenly savaged and psonal clothes and items are totally destroyed. Then Sarah accepts Dante's support and offer to live at his peninsula house.
Sarah immediately thinks that the person responsible for the damage is the same person who tried to murder her in Chicago and prompted her move to Amesport. The local police are called and she reluctantly tells Dante her history and about her stifling childhood without friends, toys or riding a bike.
What happens next makes a lovely story of doubts, acceptance and love. You must read and find out the conclusion.
Sarah is charged with his case and on first meeting finds a sexy stubborn man who was hurting more than physically.
Sarah starts working with Dante but finds it hard not to be seduced by him.
Dante opens her world up and gives her new experiences but her past catches up with her and puts both her and Dante in danger.
The story is pretty good until the sex scenes. I understand what the author wanted to convey but it was done in a bit of a crude way.
A good read. I have already read the others but this is my least favourite of the series mainly because of the terms used.
The story flows well and you get to catch up with the previous books characters.
