Fictional Hopewell General Hospital has been a hotbed of romance this summer. First, In The Doctor's Bed by Brenda Jackson, Head Resident Lucien De Winter puts his career in jeopardy when he falls for intern Jasmine Campbell.
In this second installment, Lia Taylor is a computer whiz who is caught hacking into the records of the hospital's sperm bank to find information to save her ailing son. Because there is already an unrelated scandal brewing (see In The Doctor's Bed), instead of prosecuting her, she is offered the job of securing the hospital's computer networks against other hackers. She agrees to the compromise because it also offers the opportunity to get close to Head Surgeon Thomas Bradshaw, who may be the donor that she seeks.
While this is an intriguing romantic story, it also gives quite a bit of backstory into hospital operations and the plight of chronically ill children and the lengths that parents will go to get the help they need.
