Recently, an Earl and his family have rented a house in the area for the summer. Joe is attracted to the daughters. Lady Clarissa is beautiful, but he is curious about the shy Lady Isabella. The family thought being out of London may help Bella over her fear and shyness with men caused by an incident in London. Bella works at the foundling home two days a week reading to the children and helping in the infirmary. Bella is very interested in medicine and reads medical books, but women can’t be doctors.
While Joe was attending a difficult birth, Bella tended a sick child at the foundling home. Joe discovered her later that night still sitting with the child, whose fever was down thanks to her. He was very impressed and later gave her a stethoscope. She was thrilled. When smallpox was found in a nearby town, Joe sent his brother Jake to buy cowpox vaccine from Dr. Jenner, the inventor of the vaccine. Of course, the older doctor thinks vaccinations are a waste of time and dangerous. Bella volunteers to receive the first vaccine and she has the best answers for the questions thrown at her. Then the older doctor did something despicable.
I won’t spoil the rest of this heart wrenching wonderful book. And there is a lot more than I’ve mentioned. Each brother’s book in this series can be read on its own. I highly recommend this series and this author.
I have reached the conclusion that it has become impossible for me to review a book by Virginia Heath without making a complete and utter fool of myself, because I am entirely overwhelmed by Ms. Heath’s brilliance; by her boundless creativity; the sheer splendour of her incomparable prose; her deeply human characters; her sensitivity to human suffering; and her unparalleled storytelling abilities. I have raved about the two previous instalments of The Wild Warriners, and A WARRINER TO TEMPT HER might be the best of the three; it is such an outstanding series, I honestly couldn’t tell unless I read them all again. Dr Joe Warriner is a brilliant physician and a hopeless romantic fool; a consummate professional and clueless when it comes to women; and overall, a supremely delightful hero. Bella, who was once as dazzling as her sister, is a shell of her former self; she has been hurt badly, and seldom has it felt more gratifying to witness a person heal; what a beautiful character! And what a gorgeous, breathtaking romance theirs is; let me swoon!
Virginia Heath has done an inordinate amount of research into the state of medicine in Regency England, which made A WARRINER TO TEMPT HER positively enthralling on several fronts: the stubbornness of many medical professionals when faced with modernity; the appalling treatments for some maladies (I still shiver at the mention of hysteria); and the deadly consequences of the sheer stupidity of clinging to superstitions. Not to mention, of course, the injustice of banning women from studying medicine. While it is not necessary to have read the previous books in the series, readers familiar with A Warriner to Rescue Her will smile fondly at the mention of “Orange Blossom” and shout with unadulterated glee at the consequences of small-mindedness. Oh but that was ever so satisfying; I certainly did not see it coming, and it was a stroke of genius!
Might as I try, I will never be able to do justice to the splendour that is A WARRINER TO TEMPT HER, so I will conclude with this: if you love historical romance, you need to read this book, or any book by Virginia Heath, because I’m not quite sure if anyone can do it better.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
