When the hotshot surgeon returns to her hometown, she never expects to run into the single dad again…or for their attraction to still be this powerful! Find out what happens in the latest Harlequin Medical Romance novel by Traci Douglass.

Her temporary return…
Their explosive reunion!

Hotshot plastic surgeon Cassandra is unexpectedly back in her small hometown. And stunned to see Dr. Brock again! She’s no longer the timid med student with an unrequited crush. But single dad Brock’s changed too… He’s a serious workaholic raising his daughter alone. Yet as they consult on a case together, Cassie realizes her desire is as powerful as ever. And, apparently, it’s mutual!

I am so excited Traci Douglass has a new medical romance series. Single Dad’s Unexpected Reunion is the first book in her new Wyckford General Hospital series. Set in the small fictional town of Wyckford, Massachusetts this is a story featuring a single dad, a rambunctious puppy, a little girl looking for a mommy, and a doctor at the top of her field. Single Dad’s Unexpected Reunion at its core is a second-chance romance with a little, okay a lot of humor added in.

Dr. Cassandra (Cassie) Murphy has returned to Massachusetts and her hometown of Wyckford after being gone for more than five years. During that time, she has worked hard to be not only one of the top in her field of reconstructive surgery but also the youngest partner in her San Diego medical practice. Dr. Brock Turner is a guy who is barely holding on. Since the deaths of his parents four years ago and his wife a year before that, Brock has been raising his five-year-old daughter Adilyn (Adi) alone. He has his sister Riley, but her life was also upended in the same accident that killed their parents, resulting in her becoming a paraplegic.

Cassie and Brock’s reunion is the result of a meet-cute where he mistakenly dials a number looking for someone to walk his daughter’s uncontrollable hyper-active French Bulldog Winnie. What progresses is a romantic comedy and a family forming set against the backdrop of a surgical procedure.

Single Dad’s Unexpected Reunion is filled with wonderful main and secondary characters. Cassie’s good nature and compassion shine through in spades. Brock’s interest in Cassie and his determination to still be the best son and doctor he can be is easy to see. This is definitely a slow slow-burn romance. I loved watching Brock, Cassie, Adi, and Winnie become a family, especially when they didn’t even realize it was happening.
