A smile she could never forget!

Stepping into West Manhattan Saints, Dr Tessa Camara is stunned to discover the hospital’s new orthopaedic surgeon is Dr Clay Matthews — her ex! Four years apart did nothing to extinguish the fire between them, but she has never forgiven Clay for his betrayal…

Clay still doesn’t know why Tessa ended their relationship. And with his adorable little daughter, Molly, to consider, he doesn’t have time for Tessa’s independence issues. But resisting the passionate Brazilian woman, who once stole his heart, is easier said than done!

Dear Reader,

Our family lived and worked for many years in Brazil.  One of the most fascinating things we experienced while we were there was our son’s class doing a demonstration of capoeira, a Brazilian martial art.  It was completely different from what I’d expected, with its flowing movements accompanied by the beat of the tambourines and a unique instrument called a berimbau.

In Hot Doc from Her Past, Dr Tessa Camara is slogging through the last year of her residency along with three other housemates.  Tessa happens to have Brazilian parents, who have encouraged her to retain bits and pieces of her heritage – one of which is capoeira.  When her martial arts studio decides to participate in the hospital’s summer festival it creates the perfect storm – because an old flame has just burst back into her life…someone she is desperately trying to steer clear of.  Only the hospital, her friends and fate have other plans!

Thank you for joining Tessa and Clay as they circle each other in the capoeira ring and in life, each hoping to avoid losing not only the match but also their hearts.  I hope you enjoy reading their story as much as I loved writing it!

The one that got away

Dr James Rothsberg, renowned plastic surgeon and owner of The Hollywood Hills Clinic, is famous for his control. But then he finds himself working with beautiful Dr Mila Brightman—the woman he left at the altar six years ago.

Drawn together again by an orphaned patient, it’s not long before the lingering chemistry between them explodes. Now James must decide whether to run again, or fight for the woman he never stopped loving!

Dear Reader,

Have you ever done something to protect a loved one?  Something that hurt so deeply you thought you might never recover, but you did it anyway?  Not everyone has had to make sacrifices like that, but I think most of us are willing to if it means the securty and happiness of that other person.

This is the position that James Rothsberg found himself in when he unexpectedly fell for Mila Brightman.  Only once he dropped the axe on their relationship he never expected to see her again.  Years later Mila is back in town, and the two are forced to work together for the benefit of their community.  And in doing so they fid old feelings resurfacing at the worst of times.

Thank you for joining James and Mila as they struggle to get past old hurts and uncover secrets they thought long buried.  And maybe – just maybe – they’ll rediscover love along the way. 

I hope you enjoy reading their story as much as I loved writing it! Enjoy!
