Television newswoman Helena Parker’s new gig will resurrect her flagging career, but it involves filming the taciturn Doctor Mark Roethlisberger as he attends to his medical practice in the remote village of Hoonah Alaska, deep in the inside passage that borders Canada.
An unknown condition of Dr. Mark almost derails the filming, but Helena figures viewers will love the lean, handsome doctor regardless. She’s surprised when viewers fall in love with the obvious chemistry between them, and the show takes off into the stratosphere.
Helena finds herself falling in love with Dr. Mark, but her career requires her to live in Los Angeles, while he’s committed to his life in Alaska. When filming ends, she fears that while her career will be golden once again, her private life will be in ruins, for she’ll have said goodbye to the great love of her life.
Denise Gwen’s mother once kept her up half the night to share with her the sublime joy of all that is Jane Austen. Denise was thirteen when her mother gave her her first copy of Emma, complete with weird spelling, such as connexions for connections. Nonetheless, Denise did fall in love with Jane Austen, and this may have fueled her love of reading and writing.
