Accomplished surgeon Adam Montgomery is every nurse's nightmare--and especially for Katharine Darling, his colleague in Doctors Without Borders. Though warm with patients, the arrogant doctor is cold with his staff. But after Adam barely survives several attempts on his life, his gruff manner changes under Kate's tender care. Yet Kate hides her deeper feelings for him, certain that his wealthy family can never accept a woman with a past. Will the transformed doctor show the woman he's fallen for that he needs her as a workmate...and a wife?
