About the Author

Rebecca Heflin is an award-winning author who has dreamed of writing romantic fiction since she was fifteen and her older sister sneaked a copy of Kathleen Woodiwiss' Shanna to her and told her to read it.

Never quite sure what she wanted to be when she grew up, Rebecca didn’t attend college until age 30, and earned her bachelor’s in literature, before going on to complete her law degree.
 
Ever the late bloomer, Rebecca finally turned her attention to fulfilling her dream of writing, and published her first novel at age 48. When not passionately pursuing her dream, Rebecca is busy with her day-job at a major state university.
 
She and her husband are also co-founders of a non-profit organization, which raises money to help cancer patients and their families.
 
Rebecca's pen name is an abbreviated version of her great-great grandmother's name: Sarah Anne Rebecca Heflin Apple Smith. Whew! And you wonder why she shortened it.
 
Rebecca writes women's fiction and contemporary romance, and she is a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA), Florida Romance Writers, RWA Contemporary Romance, and Florida Writers Association. Rebecca and her mountain-climbing husband live at sea level in sunny Florida.

Romancing Dr. Love by Rebecca Heflin Sounded like a good story line about chemistry and results.. She's an assistant professor and doing research on chemistry and link with love. Her parents are sex therapy doctors in NY Ethan is a professional at Sterling College also and his father has recently passed away so he keeps an extra eye out for his mother hoping to get her out of the house, doing anything to keep her busy. Ethan helps her out with her car and invites Samatha Love for a date. They discuss her ex boyfriend and he wonders why they are together. He had brought her flowers for their date and that is her first time of getting them. Such an easy thoughtful thing. Love dinner on the water-it's something my husband or I would've cooked up in the middle of Northeast winter day. Love hearing of the experiments and the links between everything she is researching... Predictable not only does their blood match but the survey they each had filled out... Events occur that break them up and jobs get in the way, there's no way they will ever be together...or is there? Cute short story, enjoyed. Excerpt from another story is included. Received from publisher and this is my honest review.

Dr. Samantha Love is skeptic when it comes to love. She believes in chemistry and hormones, but not in romance or the existence of soul mates. She's developed a blood test to discover good matches through certain chemicals. It's all very clinical and highly efficient, just like everything else in Sam's life. She's transferred to Sterling University to work on her research and so far she likes it there. She found a best friend and she feels at home at the faculty. Ethan is a literature professor. For him love is about romance and deep connections and he wants to show Sam what it's like to be treasured and appreciated. However, she doesn't really seem to like what he's offering her. He's even signed up for her research and is doing everything he can to win Sam's heart. When Sam finds out the result of his test it's scaring her. Will they be a good match or is there too much at stake for Sam to date while pursuing a glorious academic career? Romancing Dr. Love is an entertaining romantic story. Sam has quite a lot to prove. Her parents are famous and she's always associated with what they do and people judge her without knowing anything about her. They moved quite a lot and therefore Sam doesn't have any friends. She's been lonely and Sterling University changes that, but it also makes her scared. She's way too serious and I kept hoping Ethan would help her come out of her shell. She has so much to offer and is incredibly smart. Sam might be insecure in some areas, but she can stand up for herself, which makes her a great match for Ethan. He's got a wonderful cheeky sense of humor and I loved his kindness and caring nature. They complement one another and I couldn't wait to find out if Sam would give Ethan a fair chance. Rebecca Heflin writes about intelligent people with fascinating careers. Sterling University is a terrific setting for romantic stories and I immediately loved reading about it. The vivid descriptions of the research the main characters are doing immediately made me interested. Rebecca Heflin clearly knows what she's writing about and that's one of the reasons I enjoyed Romancing Dr. Love so much. The topic of her story is fun and original, which is something I liked a lot. Romancing Dr. Love is a fabulous story and I can't wait to read the next Sterling University book.

Samantha decides to leave the city for her research and sanity. She's doing research to prove love is just chemistry. The research requires a blood test to find your perfect mate. Samantha keeps busy with her research for reasons other than science. At least she was staying busy before she met another professor at the university. Well written and characters who are remarkable, make this a fun read. The easy lead of this book will engulf you in a cloud of romance. This book is equal parts of love and humor. Romancing Dr Love will become one of your favorites. Perfect for a book club. Add this one to the TBR pile. I didn't find any issues. I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it's the perfect love story. ~Copy of book provided by author and I voluntarily reviewed it.
