Reservations of the Heart

Can two wounded women who believe love is the last thing they want overcome their fears to find healing?

41-year-old doctor Stella Gilbert used to have it all. Her career was on fire, and she had a picture-perfect family–until she was blindsided by her wife doing the unthinkable. Three years after her divorce, Stella’s loved ones worry about her non-existent personal life and her stubborn belief that focusing on her career and raising her daughter are all she needs to be fulfilled.

Reeling from the revelation of a long-held family secret, 29-year-old Aurora Shirley is just over it all. If her parents could lie to Aurora all her life, won’t everyone else? Women are the last thing on her mind as she starts a temporary job at a local medical school. Unfortunately for Aurora, she needs to find a date for her best friend’s wedding or be deemed the worst maid of honor in history.

When Stella and Aurora unexpectedly come together, sparks fly. Neither is looking for a relationship, but what they discover in one another is so much more than a physical connection. Can two wounded women who believe love is the last thing they want overcome their fears to find healing?

The plot was refreshing, focusing on the characters more than the medical details, and injecting just enough humour to keep the romance light-hearted but dramatic.

Markinson knows how to use dialog in her stories. I was hooked right away by the flirty banter the two main characters exchanged.

The physical side of their relationship was scorching! But it was the romance and emotional journey that really appealed to me most about this book.
