“I have something to give you, my dear,” Todd said softly. Danielle felt her shoulders tense. Please, she prayed, not a ring. He smiled at her and from the look in his eye, she knew what he was going to say. She ached to tell him to stop, but she couldn't make herself speak.
“Danielle,” he began, “I think you know how I feel about you.” Danielle shut her eyes, suppressing the urge to cry out, “Stop!” She couldn't meet his eyes as he pulled the small box from his coat pocket.
“Danielle Camden, will you marry me?”
Even though Danielle knows that Todd Hardaway is the man of her parents' dreams, her heart feels empty. Then she meets the idealistic and attractive Carson Turner, and she feels a flicker of something that might be love. But her cold, dictatorial boss is Carson's father, which makes Danielle wonder if a relationship between them is even possible.
Carson has spent his life trying to please his father, while at the same time blaming him for his mother's death. He knows his father wants him to take over Turner Consulting, but Carson would rather save lives than save a buck. His decision to go to medical school shatters his already fragile relationship with his father. How can Carson heal others if he is haunted by the painful wound in his own heart?
From the best-selling author of Yesterday's Love, Michele Ashman Bell has crafted a remarkable and tender story of a woman's selfless service and its power to heal those around her.
