Audrey Sinclair Vanderleyden promises her dying husband, Adam, that she will continue to practice medicine, and no one is going to stop Audrey from fulfilling that pledge. Unfortunately, Dr William Hornsby, the aging, alcoholic doctor whose practice Audrey and Adam purchased, now refuses to sell his business to a “woman doctor.” Fortunately, Nathan Maxwell has a solution to Audrey’s problem. After losing his sight to a gunshot wound, Nathan gave up practicing medicine, but if Audrey marries him, Nathan will try to convince Doc Hornsby to give Audrey a chance. In exchange, Nathan will gain someone who can help him around his house. It seems like a simple transaction, but things quickly become complicated when Nathan realizes he is falling for his new so-called wife. A strong-willed woman used to fighting a society that doesn’t accept her career choice goes toe to toe with an equally determined man who would give anything to have a second chance at the job she covets in Eakes’ sweet, richly emotional historical romance.
