Review: How to Win the Surgeon's Heart by Tina Beckett (Blog Tour)

About the Book

Book Description

Things are heating up…

…in their Caribbean paradise!

For Dr. Nate, work is everything. Without him, his renowned hospital wouldn’t exist! Now he’s ready to step up to the plate—again!—as nearby St. Victoria Hospital faces a staff shortage. Surgeon Sasha is beyond grateful for the help, but she’s not so sure about Nate… Her heart’s been broken by wealthy and far-too-attractive men before! Can Nate prove to Sasha he’s different?

My Review

Dr. Nate Edwards, the son of wealthy plastic surgeons, shocks his parents by turning down their offer to join their medical practice.  Instead, he puts all his funds into a clinic on a Caribbean island.  He has strong a belief that they need his help.  When a nearby smaller hospital needs help, Nate offers his services.  

Surgeon Sasha James isn’t sure she can trust Nate.  She recently had a break up with a wealthy man who put fame and wealth first.  She’s sure Nate must be the same way.

Nate and Sasha are thrown together when they organize a fundraiser gala.  Between their careers and the fundraiser, they can’t help drawing closer all the time.  

This is the first book in a new series, “Island Clinic”, which is part of the Harlequin Medical Romance line.  It’s a quick read with strong, energetic, and fun  characters.  These characters are likeable people you can really care about and cheer for.  

There is quite a bit of drama mixed with the romance to make a delightful read.  The romantic scenes are not too steamy, but not sweet either.  It’s somewhere in the middle.  I could feel the sparks flying as I read this book.  I, also, felt as if I was in the Caribbean.  I was completely transported to this island.

I’m looking forward to reading more in this series.  There are four books in the series.  Each book is written by a different author.  Sounds like fun to me.

 About the Author

A three-time Golden Heart® finalist, Tina Beckett is the product of a navy upbringing. Always on the move, her travels eventually took her outside of the United States, where English reading material was scarce. Her supply of books eventually ran out, and she started writing her own stories, fashioned after the romance novels she'd loved through the years. She finished that first book and moved on to the next. After the fourth manuscript, she realized there was no going back…she was officially a writer. 

When not in the middle of her latest book, Tina enjoys crafting stained glass panels, riding horses and hiking with her family. Fluent in Portuguese, she divides her time between Brazil and the United States and loves to use exotic locales as the backdrop for many of her stories.

  3. I love the setting on this one and it sounds like a good story. It's been too long since I've read a romance but I'm adding this one to my list!
