I was given this book by the author for an honest review I would highly recommend this book as a beach read or a book to have on vacation It is pretty simple and straightforward I liked that the characters were doctors who were part of Medicine Sans Fronteres However, each of the doctors who volunteered to go abroad, especially to war torn Sudan were there because of a life altering events in their personal lives The love story between Ariadne and Ford is hot to say the least Their scenes are rated R for sure However, before getting to that eventual outcome, both characters must learn to deal with their emotions and personal afflictions while at the same time providing adequate health care to the villagers This being a romance novel, they do end up somewhat in the same page Yet, while on duty, Ariadne falls prey to renegades leaving their happily ever after on hold There were a few surprises that were important to the overall content of the story Without giving anything away, I liked who her eventual savior ended up being While the overall focus of the story is on the relationship of Ford and Ariadne, it also provides a glimpse of what the lives of these doctors are put through You are given a first hand account of the personal conflict and emotional turn moil while working in harsh conditions that the doctors and nurses go through However, there were some things that I did not like about this story The first being that as a reader you can obviously tell when a character is making a stupid decision So when it eventually happens, you just feel disappointed in said character Secondly, in the end I felt there was not any closure in the parts of two tertiary characters that were pivotal to how the ending of the story came to be If you like to read spicy romance this is the book for you It is straightforward and an easy read Not bad for entertainment purposes. First of all, I m amazed that this appears to be a debut novel Surely this is an already established author using a new pen name I say this because the book contains none of the stilted, awkward, juvenile or fifth grade writing I ve come to expect in a first time book, especially with a digital publisher It s very well written.If I were to complain about anything in this story, it would be too much sexual tension It made for excellent relationship development and it s true that most books don t have any of this any and that s become a common complaint from me Most of the time people just jump into bed together after catching each other s eyes, on page two But though I was fully aware this was a romance, I was interested in the background story involving doctors amid the political and social turmoil of Sudan, and I felt the constant sexual tension distracted from a greater issue I just began to skim the story every time their body parts began doing things within their clothes and I also grew weary of being reminded of how hot the hero and heroine are, her slender legs, his muscular absetc, etc I was like, Okay already The constant hardening of his groin and dripping into her panties made them seem shallow at times ESPECIALLY Ford is that all there is to him, horniness , though one could also argue that their lust is the only bright spot in rather dark conditions.But moving on I knew nothing about Sudan before picking this up I didn t even know where it was, let along that there was a civil war Through the heroine s eyes, we experience the sand, the mud from the sudden rains, learn of the disease and starvation and what s done to help the people, and feel fear when the warlords show up to do harm or steal suppliesor leave behind executed bodies.The heroine doesn t come off as very strong at first She s basically just running away from a failed relationship, which is kinda wimpy, but by the end of the novel, she s all about helping others, even if it means placing herself in peril I guess what she does is dumb, but I saw it as brave too I just wish she didn t end up needing a man to save her.Full review Australian doctor Ariadne Tate is fleeing a failed relationship when she takes a deployment to Sudan with M decins Sans Fronti res Romance is the last thing on her mind and in the country devastated by war, famine, crimes against humanity and disease, she vows to find a way to both make a difference and forget the betrayal she left behind But she didn t count on meeting American doctor Ford Gosden, also in Sudan.Ford is too attractive for his own good and Ariadne, who has been called cold before, isn t ready for what he can make her feel She doesn t want to get involved with him she s already had her heart broken enough and even if they were to give in to their feelings, it would only get messy They live together and work together but only for a little while longer When their deployments are over, Ford will go back home and America and she will go back home to Sydney There s no point losing her heart when nothing can come of it.Ariadne throws herself into doing the best she can for her patients, inoculating them against disease, trying to treat them for the ones they already have and trying to get them enough nourishing food so that they survive But as the political tensions escalate, Ariadne has caught the eye of a local militia leader who sees her as a prize he must have When she is taken during a run to deliver supplies to communities, Ford cannot sit around and wait for MSF or the UN to attempt to negotiate her release He ll do anything he can to get her back..or die trying.I ve never read a novel set in Sudan before but it s an area that s been in the news an awful lot recently This book is apparently set before the creation of South Sudan it s talked about in the novel as likely to happen soon but it s set in the politically tumultuous region of Abyei, which even now, is the subject of fighting by both the northern Sudan government and the newly created South Sudan It s been seized by the north and at the moment, seems to be held to the stricter rules of the Islamic authoritarian state For the purposes of this review I m going to assume that it s all ruled by Sudan and each part of it is held to those rules, because I m surprised that the doctors consumed alcohol often and kept it within their house, especially given that local militia often made drive bys in the night to intimidate them Alcohol is illegal in Sudan the consumption of, the making of, the importation of And although regions of the moderate south do make their own moonshine type grog, it can often be laced with some pretty bad stuff and it s a risk to even consider drinking it To be caught either possessing or drinking alcohol is an offence punishable under Sharia law I m not sure if the MSF or UN forces would be considered exempt from this but I d guess that if they re going to be tolerated in the country providing aid then they d probably have to adhere to the laws Ariadne also spends a lot of time wandering around the desert in tiny shorts and singlet tops which seems a pretty awesome way to get skin cancer But perhaps I just feel that way because I m a ridiculously pale redhead with genes suited to Scotland than Australia and I can get burned on an 18 degree day.On to the actual story Ariadne was involved with someone she worked with back in Australia only to be betrayed by him She seems to have run away from that situation and decided to immerse herself somewhere totally different working for the greater good providing medical assistance to those that need it But her vow against romance lasts for only as long as it takes her to lay eyes on Dr Ford Gosden and his emerald green eyes Ford too is scarred by something gone wrong back in America and he s also been the subject of unwanted attention from a MSF midwife as well But he wants Ariadne boy does he want Ariadne and he sets about attempting to break down the walls she has constructed around herself It s not an easy task but Ford is very persistent and he keeps chipping away at her defenses There s very much an instalust situation going on here Ariadne can t stop staring at his eyes and fantasizing about his body and it seems to go both ways Ford is a ball of hormones randier than a teenage boy with his first sexual experience dangling in front of him They certainly had a lot of sexual chemistry and passion but the transition to love does feel a little rapid Their interactions are all mostly sexual or concerning patients the situation in Sudan.Ariadne was a prickly character, quite stand offish but she developed a good friendship with one of the other female doctors However some of the characters in this book did odd things Gabriella was such a stereotype it was almost embarrassing and some of the locals felt very cliched, especially when they waxed lyrical about their country and what it had done to them Ariadne also does something incredibly stupid going off alone with just Jack, the driver, to deliver supplies Why she d even think to get that idea into her head is beyond me, especially when she d already had a run in with the local feared militia leader and seen his rather sinister interest in her Characters who make decisions to do such things in a foreign country, especially a foreign country as unstable and dangerous as Sudan seriously, read the warnings about travelling both into the country and around it, it s rather enlightening frustrate me enormously There s wanting to help, and that s fine It s her job But there s also a matter of personal safety And not putting yourself in a situation where you can get kidnapped, raped, tortured and probably murdered.

Focusing on aid work with charity Medecins Sans Frontieres, this book shows Dr Ariadne Tate travelling to Sudan from Australia Her fellow doctors, midwives and nurses include an American, Ford Gosden, who is attractive but neither of them wants to start a relationship with a colleague The bleakness of life in Sudan is unremitting We do have to wonder how people grow food there in the open desert and what they can do to better themselves when armed militia regularly drive through and loot the village The aid workers do their best in primitive conditions with improvised medical facilities When a relationship does develop, it seems doomed as Ariadne, a foreign woman, is the target of a kidnapping by the local warlord This is an unusual, well described romance story which pays tribute to brave people and shows us a different way of life. Reviewer BexDisclosure This ebook was provided by the author in exchange for an HONEST and not necessarily positive review Ariadne and Ford make for a fabulous couple to follow as they navigate their way through the heartbreak and danger in Sudan Both characters are well developed with human flaws that make them believable and highly readable characters to follow.I enjoyed the plot development and the interesting setting of Doctor s Beyond Borders The author, Georgie Tyler, has crafted an intriguing read with a love mixture of romance, suspense and drama.
