A Summer Affairby Susan Wiggs
Synopses & Reviews
A gifted but troubled physician, Blue Calhoun runs a thriving medical practice from his Nob Hill mansion in San Francisco while raising his son alone after an unthinkable tragedy. Then one day a female fugitive with a gunshot wound appears in Blue's surgery. Even though she holds a pistol aimed at his heart, the desperation in her eyes awakens Blue's compassion. Reluctantly he is drawn to her fragile beauty, her nerves of steel and the mystery surrounding her circumstances.
Isabel Fish-Wooten has spent most of her life on the run, but everything changes when she forces a stranger to save her life. Yet her rescue comes with an unexpected price. As Isabel recovers from her wounds, she finds herself touched by this remarkable man and yearns to reach out to him and his rebellious son.
From danger-filled back alleys to the glittering ballrooms of high society, Isabel and Blue confront the violence and corruption that threatens their newfound passion. Theirs is
an unforgettable quest to discover a rare and special love, and the precious gift of a second chance at happiness.
Isabel Fish-Wooten arrives at Blue Calhoun's surgery with a gunshot wound suffered in a shootout between police and opium traders. He treats her wounds and thinks that he's seen the last of the troublesome woman--until he finds her unconscious in his barn. Will he save her from both herself and the police, who are convinced she's a criminal--or will she prove too much for him to handle?
Haunted by his past, doctor Blue Calhoun finds his life forever changed by the arrival of Isabel Fish-Wooten, a wounded fugitive trying to prove her innocence, and braves high society and the criminal underworld to find the truth.
