Her ex-fiancé... ...is giving her paws for thought! Alex Norton devastated Beth Masters when he told her he could no longer marry her. The last thing she wants this Christmas is to come face-to-face with him, clutching an adorable puppy! Warm-hearted vet Beth can’t say no to a four-legged patient in need but she’ll need to guard her damaged heart from delicious doc Alex. Which becomes impossible when he finally reveals the reason why he left…

A nicely written romance with the twist of testicular cancer which affected the menfolk of a certain family and the impact that it would have on their future life – assuming that they survived. But it is worth noting that the general 5-year survival rate for men with testicular cancer is 95%. This means that 95 men out of every 100 men diagnosed with testicular cancer will live at least 5 years after diagnosis. The survival rate is higher for men diagnosed with early-stage cancer and lower for men with later-stage cancer. Unfortunately it can spread to the lymph nodes if not caught quickly and this makes it more dangerous. It most commonly diagnosed between 15 and 40 years of age.

Without this sub story we have a more normal romance which could have become rather sickly as puppies are rather Xmas obvious.

Off to an Island – for Love

The Nurse's Christmas Temptation Book Cover The Nurse's Christmas Temptation
(Mills & Boon Medical)
Ann McIntosh and Traci Douglass
Fiction, romance
HarperCollins UK
October 3, 2019
192

She didn’t plan on celebrating Christmas… Can he change her mind? Nurse Harmony Kinkaid grabs the chance to spend Christmas working on a remote Scottish island. Without her beloved grandmother, the season won’t be the same. But her organized world is thrown off balance by her fierce attraction to daredevil Dr. Cameron MacRurie. He’s her complete opposite – she’d be foolish to fall for him. Yet as Christmas lights begin to shine, Cam becomes a temptation impossible to ignore…

A male doctor and a female nurse – meet up as she becomes his surgery and community nurse on a fictional small Scottish island.

An island that is mad about Christmas! Completely bonkers with decorations, events, lights and the works to attract tourists and improve the economy of course.

The usual storyline emerges and the two fight their attraction but…

One thing that didn’t ring true is that if they make so much fuss about Xmas, and it brings so many tourists that they have to put up tents in back yards, why then is the hotel able to find rooms at no notice for a large family gathering? Surely it would be booked up months in advance – if not years… our experience with hotels shows us that the best are booked years in advance! Would spoil the story if course if there was no room at the Inn! But would be more in keeping of the season… Nicely written and enjoyable in its type.
