Modern Battles: Book One
Eccentric Sir Malcolm Witherspoon has bequeathed a rare piece of land to the Oxford Hospital Trust with only one stipulation: it must become the site for a new medical center. Unfortunately, he left the details unwritten. Now, several hospital departments are fighting to get their visions approved by the Appropriations Committee. Head of Pediatrics Dr. Grayson Burrows believes the land should be used to build a new children’s hospital. Oncologist Dr. James Pearson is certain a cancer research center will do the most good.
It’s a battle neither wants to lose.
Soon, their professional integrity is on the line, and they don’t see eye to eye on medical care: Grayson thinks a holistic approach is optimal, while James knows logical trial and error works best. But when they’re tasked with obtaining the hospital board’s approval for their respective proposals, their personal attraction threatens to take over, making them behave in an entirely unprofessional way. As the deadline looms on the committee’s decision, both Grayson and James must reevaluate their priorities or neither doctor will get what he wants.

: James comes to Britain to help get a theoretic research facility. There is only one spot and several departments trying to get it. He meets Grayson, the head of the children's department and feels a strong attraction for him immediately. He has been hurt before and stays busy so he isn’t hurt again. They have so much in common personally but James bases everything on logic and Grayson is full if heart and believes in holistic medicine. Can they keep their professional and personal lives separate? Wow! Wow! Wow! This is absolutely beautiful. This story is heartfelt, deep, loving, sensual, sexy, and sweet. I think this is one if the most romantic stories I've read in a while. Both characters are very loving, caring, sweet men with deep convictions. The storyline is also poignant on both the romantic and professional fronts. It has a lesson in fighting for what you believe in and trust. The sex is so sensual, and sexy. The description in this story is over the top though down to telling which and is used to do what motion, and tiniest details are given, but I love that, for some it could be too much, but not for me. Oh wow is there a shocking twist that is unbelievable, I bawled my eyes out! I highly recommend this story to anyone that loves a good romance, a poignant story with great detail, lots of twists and turns, a tear jerker, and a sweet happy ending with yet another surprise.
