DORINDA AND THE DOCTOR

by Jeffries, Sabrina

This original short story, now available as an e-novella, features supporting characters related to New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries' "Duke's Men" series.

Dr. Percy Worth finds young widow Mrs. Dorinda Nunley ravishing every time he sees her at her cousins', the Duke and Duchess of Lyons, but because of her station, he figures she would not make a good wife. A doctor's wife needs to be sturdy and resilient, not a society hot house flower. Still, when she lets herself into his office/residence early one day with a key and surprises him in his robe (and nothing else), he's not as upset as he should be. Though Dorinda is angry when she figures out that Lisette sent her over not to "organize" the doctor's office but to throw her and the doctor together romanctically, Percy suggests that they pretend to go along and then pretend to break off their courtship at dinner that night, for the sake of teaching Lisette a lesson. But in one day together--and one tumble in bed--both rapidly discover that neither is as unsuitable for marriage as they each think. So will they really break up? Or will the pretense become real in the end?

Available for the first time as an e standalone, DORINDA AND THE DOCTOR allows fans of Sabrina Jeffries' bestselling "Duke's Men" series to get to know supporting characters. This short story was only available on a very limited basis as bonus material in a previous proprietary edition.

Sabrina Jeffries is the New York Times bestselling author of thirty-five novels and eight works of short fiction (some written under the pseudonyms Deborah Martin and Deborah Nicholas). Whatever time not spent writing in a coffee-fueled haze of dreams and madness is spent traveling with her husband and adult autistic son or indulging in one of her passions—jigsaw puzzles, chocolate, and music. With more than 6 million books in print in eighteen different languages, the North Carolina author never regrets tossing aside a budding career in academics for the sheer joy of writing fun fiction, and hopes that one day a book of hers will end up saving the world. She always dreams big.
