Daniel slid into his seat and away from Eric, but his arms remained tense. His brothers wouldn’t like this plan. He didn’t like this plan. “I’m to babysit the spoiled rich princess and keep her away from the cops and the alcohol, this trip.”

He pressed his lips together. He expected his brothers to have an opinion, but silence greeted his ears.

All eyes went back to the door.

His collar grew warmer. Daniel glanced around to stare in the same direction. He assumed Kate Sparrow had stepped into the club.

His eyes scanned the room, and then the crowds parted. He had his first look. Time might have stopped, and he heard his own heartbeat. Brown hair with a bit of a curl, brown eyes, small frame, unusually large breasts for a woman her size, and an energy that took his breath away. He also noted that Kate’s eyes held a gleam, and Daniel’s mouth fell open. Kate Sparrow was the most beautiful woman he’d seen in a long while.

Beauty meant trouble. He turned back to his beer and refused to stare at her.

The pictures in the papers hadn’t done her justice at all. How did they turn that pretty woman into a viper with a camera? His mind raced. Did she have a Jekyll and Hyde personality that came out at night? 

My Review
Borrowing the Doctor is the second installment in The Collins Brothers series and features Daniel, the oldest Collins brother. 

When Daniel joins his family on a cruise for his younger cousin's wedding, he is asked to keep an eye on the bride's sister, Kate.

Kate has been accused of being an art thief, but only she knows the truth: she's innocent. Helping the bad guy to catch the real thief, Kate must keep the truth to herself for the time being.

When Daniel and Kate begin faking a relationship, they find themselves wanting more from one another, but can Kate be in a real relationship with Daniel when there's danger on her tail? 

Borrowing the Doctor, is a book that will have you hooked from the beginning if you enjoy romance and suspense as much as I do. Kate, seeking to prove her innocence, knows her sister is up to know good and for the groom's sake would like to see the wedding called off. The groom just wants to pawn her off. Here's where Daniel comes in. As the two connect and begin a friendship, Daniel tries to help her in anyway that he can. 

Kate, who has trust issues, feels the chemistry between Daniel, but he needs to work a little harder to gain her trust and more importantly, gain her heart. 

I really enjoyed the story line along with the great cast of characters. Kate and Daniel are both strong. Daniel is ex-military and an alpha male and Kate is intelligent and very caring.

The plot is wonderful and the romance is swoon worthy. The only complaint I have was that there were some unanswered questions left remaining at the end and I wish those would have been cleared up by the author. 

With that being said, I would definitely rate Borrowing the Doctor 4 stars and would recommend it.
