Her heart fluttered against her ribcage. She tried to ignore the
excitement coursing through her veins and peered at the package in his grasp. Gold script, with a familiar emblem a few shades darker than the container itself, teased her. Her eyes widened. She gasped.

As a side note, one of the heart surgeons I work with read this book. When he told me he had loved it and asked "Where can I get your next book?" I was thrilled and about died from embarressment at the same time! I never expected him to READ my story I'd written about a fictional heart surgeon!! When you read Dr. Lassiter's story, you will know why! LOL
Enjoy the rest of your day!
