Blurb:Danny McBrae is a super-rich playboy, but his devil-may-care lifestyle hides an artist with a sensitive heart who gave up on love after years of hurt. When his beloved great-grandfather, the eccentric Sir Malcolm Witherspoon, dies and leaves a rare piece of land to Oxford Hospital Trust, Danny finds new purpose. He uses some of his inherited wealth to help finance the planned children’s hospital, supporting his best friend, Dr. Grayson Burrows, who heads the project team.
When Grayson is seriously injured, Danny meets Dr. Halldor Magnusson, the neurologist who treats Grayson. Halldor has some weird ideas about keeping Grayson away from James, his lover, so Danny initially dislikes him. But Halldor also has his own, deeply personal reasons for wanting the children’s hospital to become a reality, and the initial mutual distrust changes into interest and attraction. When Danny’s jealous ex-lover attempts to tear them apart and someone is trying to get Halldor removed from the project team, they decide to join forces so they can win the battle.
Neither of the men is looking for love. Yet they discover it may be worth fighting for
Review: Recap: Danny has a playboy image but also has a private side that is quite the opposite. He and Grayson have been friends for years. After Danny’s grandfather’s death, he helps Grayson with the children’s hospital that is in the process of being built.
He met Dr. Halldor Magnusson when Grayson was injured and was interested in him until he almost messed up Grayson’s romance with James. Grayson got better and Halldor decided to try to meet Danny, to get to know him better. He doesn’t do casual flings, so he knows Danny isn’t for him, but the man intrigues him.
This book picks up here. The first couple of chapters recap some of the last book. Enough that if you didn’t read it you won’t be lost at all. Then it follows Danny and Halldor down a very romantic road towards love.
One thing I love about these books is how the romance is very sweet and builds slowly. Not, they meet and fall straight in bed and love. Then out of the blue a twist drops on you like a boulder close to the end, just enough to shake you up.
The characters are in great and very interesting. I love these books and can’t wait to see what’s next.
I recommend his if you like a sweet romance about real relationships, Doctors, artists, and a sweet sensual love.
