Love is easy once you learn the steps.

In the competitive world of dance, Teddy was a flawless performer and hardass choreographer who students feared and admired in equal measure. But hip surgery ended the glamour and drama, and now Teddy is recovering at his beach house, lost and listless.

Until he meets Finn, his neighbor, who is too perfect, gorgeous, and kind to exist—but very ill timed. In a seaside town as small as theirs, they can’t avoid each other, especially since Finn is also Teddy’s new physical therapist. But Teddy isn’t the man he used to be, and though Finn flirts shamelessly with him, Teddy can’t believe a has-been dancer is worthy of someone so young and full of life.   

Finn’s sunny smile is also hiding heartache. Pursuing Teddy challenges both his professionalism and his self-preservation, but if he can convince Teddy to trust him, maybe they both can heal.

Seguito di Il segreto del dottore
Copper Point Medical: Libro Due

Il  peggior partito dell’ospedale e il freddo direttore del personale si odiano… e allora perché fingono di stare insieme?

Il dottor Owen Gagnon e il direttore delle Risorse Umane, Erin Andreas, sono noti per i loro scontri accesi in corsia. Non è quindi difficile immaginare la sorpresa della città quando Erin offre un’ingente somma di denaro per vincere un appuntamento con Owen all’asta degli scapoli dell’ospedale… e il dottore dal canto suo alza la posta in gioco insistendo che Erin si trasferisca da lui.

Copper Point non avrà idea di cosa stia succedendo, ma nemmeno Erin e Owen ne sono tanto sicuri. Il gesto di Erin voleva essere un modo per esprimere interesse nei confronti del dottore, ma Owen sospetta un secondo fine: crede che Erin voglia approfittare di lui per sfuggire al padre dispotico.

Quando il direttore del personale si ritrova immischiato in una spiacevole indagine interna, Owen si mette in testa di aiutarlo e di essere l’eroe che l’altro non ha mai avuto. Erin, dal canto suo, preferisce spendere le proprie energie cercando di salvare il dottore dalle tenebre di un passato che l’uomo non vuole raccontare.

La loro relazione sarà anche finta, ma i sentimenti che provano sono reali. Tuttavia, quel legame non potrà durare se non riusciranno a mettere a tacere i demoni che li perseguitano. Per farlo non gli basterà lavorare insieme: dovranno avere fiducia l’uno nell’altro per guarire il proprio cuore.
