ONLY LOVE CAN HEAL A BROKEN HEART
Delaney Blair loves her job at Echo Lake’s Mercy Hospital, where she’s developed a reputation for being smart, fair, and driven. When she’s assigned to cut funding, she has to temporarily relocate her office, put on borrowed scrubs, and go toe-to-toe with Dr. Joshua Mackenzie, the interim head of the pediatrics department. His killer smile and rock-star body are distractions Delaney could do without, but she’s determined to stay focused while she brings his budget into line. It’s not working.
Beloved by his colleagues and patients alike, Josh is too busy caring for sick kids to talk numbers with the sexy, stiletto-clad Delaney. Every time they talk business, tensions run high…but so does a powerful attraction neither of them can ignore. When an emergency brings Mercy to its knees, Delaney and Josh must work together to save lives. But can they also find a way into each other’s hearts?
Delaney is heartbroken, she has put her heart and soul for the last 5 yrs to make sure the pediatrics has everything they need going so far as to apply for grants and anything else so she can keep the funds where they need to be. Now they want her to cut the budget, she just doesn’t know if it can be done.
Joshua, Dr MacKenzie, is not even returning her messages. He doesn’t have time for them to make his job even more difficult. When he demands Delaney come work with him on the floor, so she can see for herself how short-staffed they are. After working with the kids for a while Delaney see’s that if anything they more help not less. As she and Joshua are doing everything that they can think of to get more funding for the pediatric wing.
They are getting closer to each other the problem is that it could cause them each their jobs. When it is brought to Delaney’s attention by her boss, she calls everything off with Joshua to save his job more than hers.
I liked the way that Delaney’s character is brought through the many changes she goes through. She starts out being closed off from her emotions and slowly she opens up and learns to let people in. First the patients and then Joshua, but it’s a slow process. Joshua has his own emotional issues that he is dealing with.
