After the death of her husband and a failed engagement, Dr. Sarah Collins walked away from her medical career to travel the world.  She finds herself on a cruise ship, but minutes from the ship embarking she experiences an anxiety attack.  All that she can think of is that she must get off of the ship.  She rushes out of her cabin and into an elevator.  The close confines of the elevator get the best of her and she faints in the strong arms of the ship’s doctor, Dr. Michael Sloan.

Dr. Michael Sloan was once a brilliant surgeon.  His career ended when he stepped on a landmine.  His fiancée ended their relationship when she couldn’t come to terms with his disability.  Not knowing which direction his life should take, he makes the decision to work on a cruise ship as a doctor.

Upon first meeting Sarah, Michael is attracted to her beauty.  He recognizes the hurt in Sarah’s eyes.  He knows that she is running away from something in her past.  Can two doctors provide the healing balm needed to restore their faith in themselves and each other?  Will they be able to leave the haunting memories of their past behind to discover a love worth fighting for?

THE WIFE HE’S BEEN WAITING FOR is a wonderfully constructed emotional rollercoaster ride.  Both Michael and Sarah has experienced the worst life has to offer.  They are trying to rebuild their lives and in their journey they find one another.  Love doesn’t come easy for these two wounded souls; they must both come to terms with their past before they are allowed to see what the future holds.  Having been on several cruises, I found myself imagining that such a man exists like Dr. Sloan.  To say that he made an impact on this reader is an understatement.

Blind Passion

Purchase:  https://www.allromanceebooks.com/product-blindpassion-1031628-144.html?referrer=romjunkies


Nicole Adkins has quickly become obsessed with her new neighbor Salvatore Lopez.  She does not let the fact that he is blind stop her from having exotic fantasies about him.  She sets up “chance” encounters to enable her to see him up close and personal.  With her apartment directly across from him she even gives him privileged shows at night, knowing that he can’t see her wickedness.

What Nicole doesn’t count on is that Salvatore had the cornea surgery that allows him the ability to see.  His first night back in his apartment allows him to see the “show” that Nicole puts on for him.  Salvatore decides to take Nicole up on her offer to come to her apartment one night.  How will Nicole react to the fact that Salvatore can see?

Kelli Scott has done an excellent job in writing BLIND PASSION.  Her story is very realistic for I can see this easily happening in real life.  BLIND PASSION provides a sexually pleasing encounter where two people meet, have sex, and then hope for the best.  This is the first book I have read by Kelli Scott and I was very impressed with her writing style.
