The road to happily-ever-after starts in Costa Rica in this passionate romance by USA TODAY bestselling author Traci Douglass.

Sometimes the future…
…is just a fling away!

For single mom Sara, life has been all about raising her now adult son. But volunteering for a medical charity in Costa Rica is finally the nurse’s chance to focus on her passions. Only, her guarded new boss, Gabe, stirs something deep in her that she’d thought long forgotten… And as the devastatingly handsome doctor sends all her senses into overdrive, for once sensible Sara can’t help wondering—what if they didn’t resist temptation?

From Harlequin Medical: Life and love in the world of modern medicine.



Traci Douglass has become one of my favorite authors. I find myself being transported into the pages of her books. I never thought about visiting Costa Rica, but now I want to.

Costa Rican Fling with the Doc is a seasoned romance, featuring two people who are in desperate need of rediscovering themselves. Sara Parker has put all of her time and energy into being a PICU nurse at Chicago Memorial and raising her now-adult son after her divorce. Struggling with being an empty-nester, Sara decides to finally focus on herself and do something that she wants to do. She decides to volunteer at a charity medical organization sponsored by her hospital in Costa Rica. Dr. Gabriel “Gabe” Novak has been trying to give back and make amends for a horrible tragedy in his past, starting with his first mission trip over 20 years ago. Since then, he has helped countless people, but in the process, he has been hiding from life and never letting anyone get too close.

When the two meet, it’s an instant attraction, one neither wants to have or acknowledge. They both know they each carry baggage from their last true relationship and aren’t ready or willing to put their hearts on the line. What starts out as a fling, suddenly becomes very real, with one not wanting things to go further than their time together in Costa Rica. However, when tragedy strikes, their true character and the depths of their love can no longer be denied.

Costa Rican Fling with the Doc was a great read with great characters. I highly recommend it. Be prepared to have your heartstrings tugged.

Please note this story contains references to cancer, war, and death.
