Three couples discover love is the best medicine in Ruby Lang’s acclaimed medical romance series, now available in a value-priced ebook collection.

Acute Reactions: The man with allergies never gets the girl, but that may change for restaurateur Ian Zamora when he makes an appointment with Dr. Petra Lale. When sparks fly, a little romance just might be chicken soup for their hearts. But do two career-driven people inexperienced in relationships stand a chance of finding the right prescription for love?

Hard Knocks: Neurologist Helen Chang Frobisher is writing op-eds against Portland’s new hockey rink to try to prevent concussive brain injuries like the one that plagues her father. Oregon Wolves player Adam Magnus is fighting to build a successful career on the ice. But while the two spar in public over the future of a sports franchise on the brink, in private, they battle an impossible attraction.

Clean Breaks: Sarah Soon’s brush with cancer shook this usually confident OB/GYN. Jake Li, her brother’s annoying high school BFF who betrayed her trust, is the last person she wants to see, but the now disturbingly hot social worker has begun hanging around. Newly divorced Jake knows he shouldn’t look for a serious relationship already, but he’s always been helplessly drawn to Sarah’s vivaciousness. Can he show her that he’s worthy of a second chance?

Brotherly love may be off limits between BFFs, but these six couples risk family and friends to find their happily ever after.

Her New Worst Enemy: To save her BFF from marrying the wrong man, Ellie will do anything, even suck up to her brother’s best mate, commitment-phobic playboy Gideon DeLancy, to persuade him to hold an intervention at his Georgian manor. Gideon doesn’t intend to fall for his friend’s snarky sister, and he sure as hell doesn’t expect their weekend to develop into a full-on sex-fest. A torrid weekend affair should be the easiest thing in the world to walk away from, so why are they finding it so difficult?

From One Night to Forever: Trucker Aaron Henderson rolls into Resilient, Tennessee, for business, but an unexpected one-night stand turns out to be his new partner’s baby sister. When Kacey Randal learns her brother’s new business partner has a list of conquests as high as his big rig’s mileage, she’s ready to pretend their night together never happened. Can Aaron prove to Kacey he’s ready to reform his roaming ways?

The Texas Takedown: Berry Challoner arrives in Houston determined to go undercover as a secretary to solve her brother’s murder. Surely Tyler Reid, his best friend and a certified public accountant, can help her follow the money to the killer. But Tyler’s not a fan of this crazy, spontaneous plan, even if he is mesmerized by Berry. When it looks like she’s next on the killer’s list, he’ll have to go all in to save the girl who’s beginning to capture his heart.

Baby by Design: Tony Corcarelli forged his own path as the family’s black sheep, but now his dying Nonna is shamelessly pressuring him to choose between two paths he can’t fathom: a wife and kids or the priesthood. Trish DeVign is a successful interior designer, single by choice and satisfied … except for that ticking biological clock. When Trish asks her best friend’s brother, Tony, to escort her to a wedding, a night of fun and flirtation turns serious, with Trish confessing she wants a baby. Could a calculated conception be the answer they’ve both been looking for?

Coming Home: Callie Sorenson’s first love was tall, tanned, and, as her older brother’s best friend, completely taboo. But now a twist of fate brings her back from New York City to the childhood home she left behind years ago, and to hometown boy Danny McCutcheon. Callie is not the young girl he remembers—as a woman, she’s turning his world upside down. The risk to their hearts is high, but the temptation may just prove to be too much to resist.
