From USA Today bestselling, RITA nominated author Anthea Lawson, discover this romance filled with "danger, desire, and a deliciously different Victorian setting." - Booklist
Injured while on the Isle of Crete, Miss Caroline Huntington is taken to the island's darkly enigmatic British doctor, Alex Trentham. At first put off by his gruff manner, she soon realizes there is far more to this handsome, wounded man than meets the eye.
Dr. Alex Trentham fled England, vowing not to return, but he never bargained for the beautiful and vivacious Caroline to enter his life. As she recovers, the carefully constructed walls around his heart start to crumble under the force of emotions he cannot allow himself to feel.
When danger threatens, Caroline must return to England, leaving Alex behind. But the distance cannot withstand the force of their longing, and Alex is drawn back to the woman he loves - and the tragedy in his past that could cost him everything.

ToHeal a Heart
I found this book and its companion book to be well written and vey good storytelling. My personal feeling is that the explicit sex descriptions did not inhanse the story! A "fade to black" would have worked just as well. I realize that some find these parts appealing so I would still recommend them to a friend and tell them to skip over the steamy sections!
