A contemporary novel full of courage, strength, and a beautiful love story.
Josey Napier is the head surgical nurse in a NYC hospital. Needless to say the surgical floor is a rough and ready place. After a call from the ER, she finds three policeman injured in a protest gone bad. The most serious was Tucker Wheatcraft, a policeman who had saved a friend's son from drowning. She has seen him on occasion at gatherings, but never dreamed he would end up in her surgical room. Tucker had been hit by a car, then with a compound fracture of his leg lay immobile on the ground when a protester appeared with a gun aimed at his head. At the last minute his partner tackled the man to the ground, but he got a shot off that went under his vest to his abdomen. He survived, but barely. After two long surgeries, Tucker is on the slow road to recovery, with the chance of never walking again dominating his mind. Josey has been by his side both off duty and on. The decision is made to move Tucker back to his family's home in Texas, where he could get the care he needs. Josey is faced with a difficult question when he asked if she would go with him to help him recover. With lots of unused vacation time, she considers it, and agrees. His family is very wealthy, and a private plane and anything she wants is suddenly at her disposal. She is starting to get the feeling that what she really wants is Tucker.
Ms. Eaton has each character with alternating chapters, so you really get an inside look at their thoughts. Tucker seems almost too good to be true, but the long recovery starts to wear on them both. Strong feelings and sexual pull join to make things even more difficult. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel with its roller coaster of emotions, and recommend it if you like some medical issues with a romance.
