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.

Bethany-Kris' review of Midwife to Destiny
Five Stars
When Aurora "Ora" Aikins takes a vacation, leaving her fiancé at home, she crosses paths with the handsome Dr. Jason Lartey. Despite their attraction, and the seemingly familiarity between them, Ora pushes the feelings that grow for Jason aside to fulfill her promises to the man she left back home. Years later, with no fiancé and marriage, the two reunite in Ora's hospital, and this time, Jason isn't about to let her get away from him a second time.
First of all, let me just say, I am biased to the name Aurora. I am, like sickeningly so, so the female lead had me caught at her name. Yeah, I'll do that for a character. Moving on ...
I really appreciated how this author brought the characters together, but kept them pure, in their own way. Ora, specifically. While the heroine might have felt she crossed a line during her time with Jason the first go round, I certainly didn't think so. You can't help who you fall in love with, after all. Sometimes love happens in an innocent, unassuming way. That's how it felt with these two. That probably should have been a clue for Ora that this man was meant to be hers, but instead, she took a different route, and ran. It happens. I wanted to proverbially smack her one over it.
And then we have Jason ... without giving anything away, he waited his time out. And then, he did what he had to, to get her back. You have to appreciate a confident man who knows what he wants and goes for it. He got a lot of props from me for that.
I thought the characters had great chemistry. I adored the settings of the book. The author didn't drone on with details, but she kept it alive, nonetheless. I appreciated how the heroine was made work through her issues. Things don't fix themselves in a day--that's not real life. The title confused me for the longest time, but that got itself settled out and I thought it was a cute tie in for the plot, really. If you're looking for a clean romance, and you enjoy the medical aspect, pick this one up and give it a shot.
