Doctored by Shadoe Publishing

Doctors without borders meet's nurse who is unsure of a same-sex relationship.


A brilliant child protégée, she dreams of becoming a doctor and a surgeon…and accomplishes her goals.  Unfortunately, her youth and round, child-like face work against her.  No matter how skilled she becomes, how knowledgeable, the old school, male-dominated medical hierarchy wants to keep her in ‘her place.’

Deana has worked hard to become an expert in her chosen field, but few believe this ‘child’ capable.   Specializing in infectious diseases, she travels the world—from the States to Europe to South America—honing her skills before winding up in Africa where her skills are desperately needed.

Meeting a nurse by the name of Madison MacGregor, she finds they share an insatiable curiosity and a love of helping others, but falling in love was not what she intended.  Later, when she loses Maddie to a misunderstanding, she is haunted by the one that got away…

Ten years have passed and both the doctor and nurse have moved on with their lives, but fate intervenes when they find themselves working at the same hospital.  Their friendship is revived…can their love be rekindled?  Will the past haunt them or bring them closer?  Will the secrets that both harbor keep them from realizing a future together?

Sample text:

“Hey!  Where’d you get that huge bouquet from?” Bonnie asked her with a touch of innuendo and a sly grin.

“What?  What bouquet?” Madison asked with a puzzled frown, looking around as though she could see them from her desk.

“The one at the nurses’ station on the fourth.  You didn’t put them there deliberately?” she asked slyly, as though to get in on ‘the secret.’  She was actually hoping to ferret out more information.

“Why would I do that?” Madison stopped writing in the patient’s chart and looked up.

“To show Tom that he isn’t the only one interested?  Payback for that bad date?”

Madison grinned ruefully at the ill-conceived idea of anyone being able to date Tom Masters.  The arrogant asshole had told her equal rights meant he expected her to pay for her half of the expensive date he had taken her on.  She shook her head.  Had he sent flowers to make up for it?  “I didn’t see them,” she told her friend, truthfully.

“Well, Sheila told me that they couldn’t fit them on or in your locker so they decided everyone could enjoy them.  There is no card though,” Bonnie confided, and that confirmed that she had looked.

Madison rolled her eyes.  Having friends among the staff could be a little bit of a pain in the ass.  She had to be careful as she was their superior.  She finished up the chart she was looking at, closed it, and filed it as she got up from the desk.  “Guess I’ll go have a look,” she told her impatiently curious friend.

Author review:
The translation itself is top-notch. However, the length of time it took her, the delays, the lack of communication, that took the rating down.
