Friday Finds - Storytellers Across The Genres

The one thing I've found in common, no matter if the book is pure Sci-Fi, High Fantasy, Contemporary Romance, Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, New Adult, or Cozy Mystery, is that the best storytellers pull you into their world and make you care what happens. The books on this edition of Friday Finds are like that. Enjoy!

The Passion of Patrick MacNeill (The MacNeills, #1) 
Virginia Kantra

Genre: Contemporary Romance
FREE (sale ends June 30, 2014)

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?
