Tasty Guest Post & Giveaway: Melting the Ice Queen's Heart by Amy Ruttan

The heroine in MELTING THE ICE QUEEN’S HEART is quite simply, an Ice Queen. 

Dr. Virginia Potter grew up in poverty and worked very hard to be where she is. To become Chief of Surgery at a young age takes a lot of dedication, but her upbringing and work didn’t harden her heart.

A loss of a loved one did that.

So Virginia has a hard time opening up to people. She likes rules. She likes order and regulation, but her only companion lately has been a cactus.

She’s awkward around children and never thought she wanted any for herself. In fact she was positive she didn’t after what happened to her sister.

When I was writing Virginia I pictured Colbie Smulders from How I Met Your Mother. So I was enormously pleased when the cover for the book came through and the woman on the front was a smack almost dead on image for how I pictured Dr. Potter.

Virginia was raised in a large family, in a trailer on the outskirts of De Smet, South Dakota. Though they didn’t have much, her parents gave her a good work ethic and she was loved.

After her sister died though from something that could’ve easily have been prevented had she been able to afford the health care she need, Virginia hardened her heart and worked hard to give back to people.

Though, her job is not easy when a board of directors threatens to take away the pro bono and shut down the trauma unit to make more money in the field of plastics. Virginia’s world is shattering and she’s angry with herself for being caught in a place that won’t help the people she really wants to help.

Dr. Gavin Brice frustrates her as well, because he bucks all the rules in his carefree way.

Maybe he’s exactly what the doctor ordered for her. 

It started with a kiss… 

Having left his humanitarian posting in Africa to raise his two orphaned nieces in San Francisco, Dr. Gavin Brice has enough on his plate without an inconvenient attraction to his new boss! The frosty Dr. Virginia Potter clearly disapproves of his maverick ways - but with one amazing kiss, the ice begins to thaw….
