If Grey’s Anatomy makes your heart flutter . . . this trilogy is for you.

When every day is a battle between life and death, can two warring hearts find healing in each other?


I’m a naturopath, a vegan, and an eternal optimist. I’m passionate about my patients, quick to fight for what I know is right for them, and not about to be pushed around by some arrogant doctor like Deacon Girard. My first few year on the oncology wing at St. Agnes Hospital in Harper Springs is a rollercoaster of extraordinary victories and devastating losses. Only the friends who surround me make everything bearable.


I’m a gifted doctor, a former farm boy and a confirmed realist. I’ve worked hard to build an oncology wing in his hometown, and I’ve assembled the perfect team to treat the patients who come to them for healing and hope. But one member of that team lives to challenge my opinions. I can’t decide if I want to push her away . . . or make her mine.

But life can change in a heartbeat . . .

When every day is a battle between life and death, can two warring hearts find healing in each other?


My first months on the oncology wing at St. Agnes Memorial Hospital were . . . tumultuous. The near-constant tension between Dr. Deacon Girard and me, a disastrous relationship, and losing a favorite patient might have made me second-guess my decision to move to Harper Springs . . . if it wasn’t for my friends. Having them in my life makes everything else bearable.

When one friendship begins to grow into something more, well, maybe it’s time to move on and forget about Deacon.

If only I can . . .


I haven’t run away from a damn thing since I was a kid, but I’ll admit that’s exactly what I did after things got too intense between Emma and me. I took off for Eastern Europe, telling myself that I was there for kids who needed my brand of medical expertise. But the truth was that I had to get away from Emma . . . because what I feel for her scares the hell out of me.

I’ve been down this path before, and I know the kind of pain love brings with it. I don’t need to do this again. So even after I return to St. Agnes Hospital, I try to forget what was between us. I ignore my own heart.

For as long as I can . . .

When every day is a battle between life and death, can two warring hearts find healing in each other?

I don’t know who I am anymore.
I thought I’d found a man who was right for me, someone with whom I could build a life . . . but all the reasons we should work don’t mean much when I realize that I can’t love him the way he deserves. ?And then there’s the other guy in my life—the one who broke my heart and ran away. The one I can’t stop wanting and needing. The one who makes me feel so alive each time we’re together.
When it comes to my patients, I’m an eternal optimist. Maybe that’s why I’m determined to try for happily ever after again.?As long as there’s life, there’s hope. And hope is all I have.

I don’t know what to do.
I thought I’d lost the woman who haunts me, body and soul. I was sure that she was in love with someone else. I was prepared for the pain, again. I was braced for the hurt. But I was wrong.
I have one last chance with her. If I screw it up this time, I’ll lose her forever, and if that happens, I know I’ll also lose my only hope for happiness.?I never give up on a patient. And I’m not giving up on us.
