What happens when a job to pay the bills turns into a passion you can’t ignore, and an unexpected romance turns your entire world upside down?
Martha Drummond has her entire life mapped out. She’s always known she would follow in her father’s footsteps and become an accountant, and she’s studying hard to make it happen. Engaged to her childhood sweetheart, Ray Blackstone, Martha knows exactly where her life is heading.
That is, until she takes a job at Marshall Brower Hospital.
Martha believes that working as a nursing assistant will be an easy way to pay for her education, but she doesn’t expect to find that she has a natural love for nursing… or to fall head over heels in love with a beautiful doctor.
Vera Hunt dreams of owning her own practice some day, but for now she’s content as a trainee at the hospital. Being a doctor is a real way for her to make a difference in the world, and it’s a role in which her compassionate nature can truly shine.
Vera’s happy enough in her work, but it’s only when she meets Martha that she realizes something might be missing.
From the first time they set eyes on each other, it’s clear that Martha and Vera have chemistry, and soon they are tumbling down a path that will change their lives forever.
But if they’re to find a future together, they’ll need to be honest, and neither of them has been entirely straightforward with the other.
Can Martha turn her back on a secure future with Ray and explore this unknown path with Vera? Is Vera ready to put Martha’s past behind them?
No Accounting for Desire is a captivating story of love and passion. Martha and Vera share a deep connection, but it takes enormous courage to turn your back on certainty.
