Wanted: Medicine Man

(The fifth book in the Silverpines series)
A Novella by

Hattie Richards has two strikes against her: she is half-Native American and a woman. Even with her education as a physician, the town of Silverpines doesn't see her as more than a healer. Her exotic looks, and kind heart capture the attention many men and the irritation of many women. When a disaster strikes, Hattie aids the very people who rejected her skills. Needing help, she sends a telegram to her alma mater back East asking for a physician's assistant. Dr. Richard Childs has always wanted a practice of his own. When a position for a town doc opens in Silverpines Richard knew this was his opportunity to move West and start anew. The only condition? He must come as a mail-order groom. If that isn't bad enough, his intended wife has no idea of his existence. Hattie is grateful for the help he provides caring for the many wounded. As they work together, Hattie finds herself falling in love with the gentle doctor. He is caring, attentive and seems at ease working with Hattie and her more natural remedies. However, she isn't the intended bride! When the real physician's assistant arrives, Dr. Childs realizes he may have arrived under false pretenses. Can these two people open their hearts to true love and heal more than just the people of Silverpines? This is a sweet romance with some kissing and lots of misunderstandings, as two wounded people go seeking a happily ever after. Although this is part of the Silverpines series, it can be read as a stand-alone novel.
