Our own Nancy Yeager has a new book out, Four Corners of Heaven, part of her Harrow’s Finest Five series, stories about old schoolmates and their search for their happily-ever-afters, encountering smart women, steamy passions, and the occasional scandal.
In Four Corners of Heaven, two dedicated scientists pursue their place in history and learn that love confounds logic every time. But is it enough to keep them together when their futures fall apart?
Harrison Stafford, the future Baron Chelton, has devoted his life finding a medical miracle drug. But he’s unable to prove he’s found a cure-all, and his once-promising research is doomed. When a woman scientist offers to help him save his life’s work, he agrees to the unorthodox arrangement, and vows to treat the lady as he would any other laboratory partner. That would be so much easier if he didn’t find his brilliant new colleague so beguiling.
For years, Adelia Dawson has fought convention to pursue her dream of becoming a doctor. Her scientific prowess and dedication to patients haven’t helped her get into medical school, but saving Mr. Stafford’s research might. She’d determined to maintain a professional distance from her fellow researcher until she catches a glimpse of his passionate nature under his cool exterior. Now she can’t help thinking of her new workfellow in a deeply personal way.
Harry and Adelia struggle to maintain their professional distance while their shared passion for their work draws them closer. When their research unravels and forces them onto opposite sides of a professional rift, they could lose more than their careers. They could lose their chance at love.
