A big-city doctor in a small-town Montana practice....A former nurse who has sworn off doctors forever....The scene is set for passions to ignite in Big Sky Country. For readers of Robyn Carr and Sherryl Woods.

City doctor Josh Stanton and his sports car don’t suit the country, but with his medical school debt about to bury him, Josh has to make the best out of a bad situation. Adjusting to his new job and life in the middle of nowhere isn’t easy, but at least the views of the mountains—and one distractingly attractive local—are stunning...

After eight years away, Katrina McCade is back in Bear Paw for a break from her life, bad choices—and men. But when a broad-shouldered stranger bursts into town, she finds herself unexpectedly saddled with the town’s sexy new doctor as a tenant. Katrina doesn’t need a man to make her happy, especially a disgruntled physician. But try telling her body that...

Montana Actually by Fiona Lowe is the first book in the Medicine River romance series. Oh, I was head over heels under the big Montana sky from page one. Josh Stanton is a city boy through and through. He takes a job as an ER physician in Bear Paw, the smallest town he’s ever been in. Only once he arrives, he discovers he is the only doctor in town – the clinic doctor and the ER doctor, something he’s not counting on.

Katrina McCade has moved back to Bear Paw after a bad relationship and is hoping to fly under the radar working at the diner and a bar, not using her RN degree. The cabin she owns is rented out, so she ends up staying with her parents on their ranch, Coulee Creek. Her goal is to avoid all men, especially doctors, and she’s doing a fine job of it until Josh Stanton rolls into town and ignites her passion.

There was so much I loved about this story. Josh and Katrina are not perfect characters. They both come with a lot of baggage and issues and they’re both so against being in a relationship that they don’t see what’s right in front of them. As much as I loved Josh and Katrina, my favorite character by far was Katrina’s brother Beau. I fell hard for Beau as soon as he popped into the story. There was just something about him that made me want to jump in the car and head for Bear Paw.

I liked that this was a complex story. The characters were well-developed and they all had their own problems going on that contributed to the overall story. There were poignant moments balanced with sizzling moments. I found myself reading ‘just one more page’ until I finished the book. When that happened, I didn’t want the story to end. I’m really looking forward to my next visit to Bear Paw. I’m hoping there’s a future book or novella focusing on Beau – I would love to read it. 🙂

I won this book in a giveaway. My opinion was not influenced in any way.
