Acute Reactions by Ruby Lang

The man with allergies never gets the girl, at least according to the movies—and Portland restaurateur Ian Zamora wants to be the guy who gets the girl. To rid himself of the sensitivities brought on by his sometime-girlfriend's cat, he makes an appointment with allergist Petra Lale. But he suddenly finds himself acutely attracted to the very woman who is supposed to be helping him take care of his problem.

Petra's intrigued by Ian’s quiet strength and sexy body, but her solo practice is new and struggling. She can't afford to compromise her ethics—or risk her medical license—by dating a patient. Falling in love certainly wasn’t this doctor's order. She tries to stay away from Ian, but fate, and her weak willpower, keep bringing them back together.

Do two career-driven people with inexperienced hearts stand a chance of finding the right prescription for love?

Get a sneak peek at  Ruby Lang's Acute Reactions (available March 23, 2015) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

Alone with Ian at his bar, Petra expresses reservations about going out with the handsome restaurateur because she has been his physician. Ian tries to change her mind by taking a turn at playing doctor.

She was furious and horny and her temples throbbed because no matter how much she was trying to control the situation, the reins seemed to slip out of her grasp. And he knew it.
