I just checked the special listing site but couldn't find any historical romances where the hero is a doctor. I know I've read some(Tempting Juliana and an E. James novel), but I know there are more. I read another one that was pretty good. The heroine gets the hero doctor to tend to her dog. I think that's the setup. I remember that as being pretty good, but don't remember the title. Anyone have any additions to my list?

I think there are quite a few. Off the top of my head, a couple good ones...

Kate Hannigan by Catherine Cookson
The Surgeon by Kate Bridges (historical, Canada)

adding...Sweet Everlasting by Patricia Gaffney (American historical)

Everlasting Love by Patricia Gaffney (America, ca. 1900), great book.

Carla Kelly: The Surgeon's Lady, Libby's London Merchant and her newest, Coming home for Christmas, even has three surgeons in a row.

And if you are searching for a woman doctor: Linda Howard, The Touch of Fire, western (loved it!!!).

Had to interrupt my posting, that's why I mentioned Everlasting love too.

Lisa Kleypas had one in the Where's My Hero Anthology.

I haven't read it, but I believe both the hero and the heroine in Lady of Skye by Patricia Cabot are doctors.

Are you interested in heroines who are doctors? Because I can think of two - in Jennifer Donnelly's The Winter Rose and the heroine of Not Quite a Husband by Sherry Thomas.

These look great. I'm familiar with some, but there are some new titles for me to check. I'm sort of partial to the men being doctors, not so much the women.

The Patricia Cabot book is Lady Of Skye where both are Drs. Jude Deveraux: Twin Of Fire also has both hero and heroine as doctors.

Others I haven't read:

Jo Goodman: Marry Me. Hero is a doctor
Jane Feather: The Wedding Game. Hero is a doctor
Eloisa James: When Beauty Tames The Beast. Hero is a doctor
Vanessa Kelly: My Favorite Countess Hero is a doctor

Two more sprawling books with romance but not necessarily Romances on my TBR pile (but the print is soo small)

Diana Brown: Hand Of A Woman Heroine is training to become a Dr.
Taylor Calwell: Testimony Of Two Men Hero as Dr.

You mean, Sweet Everlasting, don't you? I mentioned it in my above post. Or is there a title by Gaffney called Everlasting Love? (I might be wrong. Been known to happen. Smile )

I second the Gaffney and Kelly's Libby's London Merchant (I have not read the other Kelly titles). Also:

A Candle in the Dark by Megan Chance (hero is an alcoholic doctor), and that reminds me of another good oldie, Waiting for the Moon by Kristin Hannah. It's been a long time since I read these, but I remember enjoying them.

I have not read it, but I recall that more recently, Eloisa James' When Beauty Tamed the Beast had a doctor hero (reminiscent of the main character of the TV show House).

Xina!
I remembered something with Everlasting , looked it up at fdb, got interrupted.... and then it became Everlasting Love instead of Sweet Everlasting. Sorry!

I'm sure I've read other western with doctors, but I must remember them first!

I've only read a few books with this theme. Two have been mentioned, My Favorite Countess and Where's My Hero anthology. Another one is Ecstasy Wears Emeralds by Renee Bernard. This is a good book. It's part of her Jaded Gentlemen series. The only other one I remember reading is Ashes in the Wind by Kathleen E Woodiwiss.

The only book I can think of off the top of my head that hasn't been mentioned already is The Bargain by Mary Jo Putney, which has a secondary romance between the hero's sister and the hero's doctor.
