The Doctor’s Dilemma

The Doctor's Dilemma by Victoria M. JohnsonThe Doctor’s Dilemma

Doctor Ryan Novak wants nothing to do with women whose only wish is to be a doctor’s trophy wife. Luckily, working in his pediatric clinic in rural Mexico puts romance last on his mind.
Nurse Grace Sinclair arrives at La Clínica Pediátrica with a broken heart and a vow never to fall in love again. The temporary nursing assignment is exactly what she needs to escape her painful memories and to rejuvenate her spirit.
After a rocky introduction, Ryan is skeptical of Grace’s motives for joining the remote clinic, and Grace believes he is like the doctors back home, demanding and self-centered. However, when disaster strikes the village, they soon realize they are equally committed to helping the community, and their close working relationship makes it impossible to ignore their attraction to one another.
When Ryan offers Grace a permanent assignment, her pain and fear stand in the way, and he wonders if he’ll ever be able to convince Grace to risk her heart again. The Doctor’s Dilemma tells the story of Ryan and Grace and the villagers whose lives they touch.

The Doctor’s Dilemma was a finalist in the 2012 Booksellers’ Best Award. (A Published Author’s Contest judged solely by booksellers and librarians for books published in 2011) It finaled in two categories, Best Traditional Romance and Best First Book!
