Dedicated burn surgeon Kate Sinclair shields her tender heart behind a white coat and a coolly professional manner. But something about the little patient the nurses dub “Iron Man” and his vital flyboy father challenges her as a doctor and a woman.

Since the car crash that killed his wife and almost took his son, pilot Patrick MacNeill’s life has revolved around his little boy. No one—no woman and certainly no interfering doctor—can intrude on their bond, forged in love and pain.

When little Jack’s care brings these two together, it ignites a passion they can’t ignore. But their growing involvement threatens Patrick’s emotional barriers and Kate’s professional future. With so much at stake, will she trust her judgment...or her heart?

    A strong, Alpha hero with an equally strong heroine passionately

    A strong, Alpha hero with an equally strong heroine passionately working together to help the hero’s young son, who has been seriously burned in an auto accident. Kate is a driven surgeon who doesn’t have time for love and Patrick’s sole focus is his son, but in the course of caring for the boy’s injuries, they come together to find a life and love with each other.

    Based on a true story, “The Passion of Patrick MacNeill” was my introduction to Virginia Kantra’s books and to this day, remains one of my favorite books of all time. I can’t count the number of times I’ve re-read this story!! Virginia has a tremendous gift writing relationships and family dynamics – she always pulls me into the story with lush, believable characters and powerful, intense feelings. And, honestly, if you don’t have a lump in your throat and/or tears in your eyes at the prologue of this book, you have NO soul!!

    A hero meets his match! Virginia Kantra¿s The Passion of Patric

    A hero meets his match!

    Virginia Kantra’s The Passion of Patrick MacNeill is a lyrical, heartwarming, and divine story. Marine hero, Patrick MacNeill struggles with trying to make right his son’s life; after the child suffers burn injuries from accident that also claims the life of the child’s mother and Patrick’s. Patrick is used to doing things his way. Enter surgeon Dr. Kate Sinclair, passionate, strong; and confident in her advocacy for her patients. She’s always depended on herself. She too is a “fixer” of all things. When these two clash over Patrick’s son's treatment sparks fly – especially, as they try to figure out a way forward to a real, happy ever after. Add in two meddling and hunky brothers and a sweet, lovable, and rough-and-tumble little boy – and it’s magic as only Virginia Kantra can weave! Keep the tissues close by. This story is a keeper.

    The Passion of Patrick McNeill is an amazing story that's at times heart-wrenching, often heart-warming & touches the soul. I've lost count of how many times I've read this book. It NEVER, ever gets old. Beautifully written, with wonderful characters, The Passion of Patrick McNeill is everything a romance novel should be - and more! Don't miss this one but beware - the prologue will leave you in tears; have tissues at hand!

    Wrong title

    This book should have been called the indecision of patrick macneil or the insecurity of kate sinclair. Calling it the passion of.....makes one belive it will be passionate and disappoints one when it is not. I felt like the story drags character development felt drug out and overly dramatic. By the end I didn't care if Kate and Patrick got together anymore I just wanted them to hurry up and do it so the book would be over.

    NICE QUICK READ

    The author, Virginia Kantra, builds quite a nice story with a unique Romance triangle-- doctor/patient/patient's parent -- That loses some of its believeability, but not it's believeableness, along the way.
    But aside from that, all facets are used to create a most interesting 190 page of entertainment ... until the reader gets to the conclusion which wraps up so quickly, I thought I had skipped past three or four pages.
    That was disappointing, although it was the right conclusion for an otherwise very nice story. Liked it very much.

    A keeper

    Even though my paper copy of this book is with all my treasured keepers, I still pounced on it as soon as it was released as an ebook. This book gave me a respite when I was going through a very tough time. It's well-written, thoughtful and moving. I'm pretty sure Virginia Kantra went on my auto-buy list in the strength of this book alone. (If not, it was after the next book. She remains an author I buy on name alone.)

    Wow!

    Wow! Wow! What an absolutely awesome book.
    The characters were inspiring, a father dedicated to his son, the boy, Jack, so brave! Kate Sinclair, the doctor, who managed to overcome so much. A truly loving story that winds it's way into your heart. Thank you for writing it.

    I thought this would be a tearjerker because it was going to be so sad. I shed a few but not because of it being sad.
    It was a good story; I knew how it had to end; but was still worth reading. I didn't want to put it down. Lulamae31
