"Defying death is the ultimate dare. Defying love? Well, that s just stupid. "
A "Red Hot Weekend" Story
Back-to-back medical degrees took Emily Knox right where she planned to be: treating patients in an alternative cancer clinic. But nothing prepared her for a cocky, cheeky Aussie who strode into her life and "dared" her to cure him. She told herself it was his challenge she couldn t resist not his daredevil charm.
Eight months later, Rob s out of danger and Emily s in trouble. She s in deep, too deep. Worse, Rob has left the clinic against doctor s orders. There s nothing for it but to follow him across eleven thousand miles of land and sea to give him what for as his doctor, of course.
Rob never expected to survive the brain tumor. Nor did he expect to fall head over heels for his very proper, very English oncologist. The problem? Her Hippocratic Oath hangs between them, keeping her just out of reach. Now, with cured on his medical chart and his duty as best man for his best mate calling, he takes off for home to start getting his old life back.
Trouble is, while the good doctor cured his cancer, she seems to have inflicted him with something else desire he just can t shake.
Warning: Rob Thorton is addictive. Also, there s scorching passion, undeniable lust, soul-shattering desire, heartbreaking angst, explosive sex and of course, Australian sarcasm. Did you really expect anything else? "
