The emotional tension between them kept me turning the pages. Though he pretended to be someone he was not, she still had inklings that there was more. He was afraid to trust her, she betrayed him to save her brother, then risks everything to save him.
Thanks for asking. :)(less)

19th Century Stethoscope with bell-shaped end.My current work-in-progress is a novel which takes place during the Civil War. The heroine is a nurse and the hero a doctor.
