WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT DOCTOR LOVE:

�A very funny and touching book with great dollops of erotica, nostalgia, hilarity and a surprising, sweet literary lilt.�

Liz Smith, New York Daily News

�Whether writing about food or sex, Gael Greene is delicious.�

Dan Greenburg, author of Love Kills and Exes

�Greene succeeds beyond all reasonable expectations at realistically depicting many of the dilemmas a man finds on the threshold of his middle years. Though a bit tart in spots, Doctor Love is a cream-filled confection.�

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

Doctor Love

Gael Greene�s Most Daring Erotic Novel

Now Available In 30th Anniversary Digital Edition

What do men really want? And how much of it do they want all the time? The author of the landmark erotic classic Blue Skies, No Candy returns with a steamy and moving novel as serious and funny as life itself.

Dr. Barney Kincaid M.D. loves women. He loves loving women. Everything he knows about himself, he has learned from women. A brilliant doctor, pioneer in emergency medicine, irascible hospital watchdog, loving father and ambivalently devoted only son, Barney is newly divorced at 42. Now, Barney is caught up in the drama of high-risk medicine and the carnal joys of his glorious second adolescence. Yet Dr. Barney Kinkaid is a great lover who has never been in love.

Ecstatically, he divides his time between Debra, his irrepressible playmate-in-kinkiness, and Lindsay, the wholesome, cotton-pantied woman of his dreams. But when Barney is suddenly forced to confront his own mortality, the shock sends him on a voyage into his erotic past and a frenetic odyssey that almost destroys his career.

A national best seller, Doctor Love was greeted in l982 with outrage and disbelief from some critics and cries of recognition and praise from others for Greene�s uncanny ability to write through the eyes of a man. Three decades later, it remains a landmark of erotic fiction and feminist literary triumph.
