Midwife to Destiny
Destiny Series, Book 1
Contemporary Romance, Multicultural
Ghanaian nurse Aurora ‘Ora’ Aikins never expected to find the love of her life while on vacation in South Africa. Engaged to another and believing that love has no place in her life, she returns to Ghana, and puts duty and honor first.
Three years later, Dr. Jason Lartey still can’t get Ora out of his mind or his heart. After learning she never married, he takes a risk and moves to Ghana hoping to rekindle what they started. His sudden appearance in Ora’s Emergency Department sends sparks flying all over again.
They’re in the same country, working in the same hospital, and together but distance creeps between them. Can they make their destined love one for the ages?
The pain pulsing through Aurora ‘Ora’ Aikins’ injured wrist transitioned into a delicious, unfamiliar tingle when Dr. Lartey touched it.
“It’s just my luck to come on vacation and get hurt,” she huffed in frustration as she forced herself to not sigh at the pleasure his gentle probing touch evoked.
“You were very lucky. The x-ray shows your wrist isn’t broken, but you sustained a very bad sprain so you have to be careful with it,” he said, sounding all business-like.
Each time he touched her wrist, her stomach twisted and her awareness of him as a man, with the need to get to know him better, intensified.
These sensations unnerved her but the gorgeous man she had the privilege of calling her doctor seemed unaffected.
His confident stride had drawn her attention when he’d entered the consulting room. His spicy, with a citrusy undertone, cologne filled the sterile hospital air, making her nostrils flare to take in more of his unique scent. Deep brown eyes had perused her chart as she’d taken in his short-cropped hair, high cheekbones, and thick lips that brought kissing into her mind. Dark smooth skin rivalled the richness of high quality chocolate.
Ora scanned the emergency room cubicle, which had become smaller with the doctor’s broad-shouldered, towering stature, for cameras. Could she be on a reality TV show? Starring in one had never been a life objective, but the crew might have caught her unaware. No visible cameras, but those producers were sneaky and could place one inside a stethoscope.
I received a copy of this book for taking part in the books blog tour, and in return for an honest review.
I started on this a little while back and ended up stopping reading for a couple of weeks, I don't know why but I just couldn't get into it. But.... after picking it up again I couldn't seem to put it down! I really got into it and was desperate to read the ending.
This is a sweet romance book, a little different to the erotic novels I usually read, but I really enjoyed it. It is set in Ghana and revolves around a nurse Aurora (Ora) and an ER doctor she meets while on holiday in South Africa. Ora is engaged but feels herself falling for this doctor, so when she returns home she doesn't contact him again. Fast forward 3 years later and Dr Jason surprises her but turning up as the new doctor in her ER.
The chemistry between Jason and Ora is huge, anyone can feel it, but I felt like Nana totally nailed Ora's feelings when Jason appears in the ER. These 2 were obviously made for each other, but readers don't actually know whether they will end up together until almost the end of the book.
I liked Esi (Ora's cousin) as a side character, I would actually like to see her with her own story, she seems a feisty little thing lol. Ora is a fantastic lady, and the way Nana portrayed her just goes to show that you might think you know what's going on in your life and why, but sometimes you need a shove in the right direction to really see what's going on.
Good book, I'd recommend it.
