The Gentleman Physician
A broken heart and past regrets keep a physician and spinster apart, but a second chance at love may heal them both.
Banished from home by her angry father, Julia Devon travels to Bath to fulfill her role as family spinster by assisting her cousin, Lady Heatherton, in caring for her dying husband. Julia knows she must make plans for her future, as she refuses to go back to her father's home.
Nathaniel Hastings’s life runs in a predictable pattern, until a routine visit to one of his ailing patients brings him face to face with Julia. She broke his heart five years before when she turned away his offer of courtship, and he hasn't been able to forgive or forget her.
Julia and Nathaniel find the spark between them very much alive as they work together to tend to the family’s needs, fend off Lady Macon’s scheming brother-in-law, and avoid confronting the pain of their shared past. But could this accidental meeting be their second chance at love?
