The Nurse's Not-So-Secret Scandal
THE NURSE'S NOT -SO- SECRET SCANDAL is Book #3 in a miniseries, Madrin Memorial Hospital by Harlequin Mills and Boon Medical Romances from author Wendy. S. Marcus.
Roxie Morano depends on herself only as her brothers moved out soon after their mother started showing signs of mental illness. Since age twelve, she had no one else to depend on. She shocked Ryan `Fig' Figelstein by telling him that she lost her virginity to the local grocer to pay for food when she was fourteen. But she was a nurse now and loved her job and would do anything to keep it.
Head nurse and Roxie's best friend, Victoria, was finding narcotics drugs missing from the ward's drug cabinet. All evidence pointed to Roxie taking the drugs. Victoria installs Fig as the ward unit clerk to keep an eye on Roxie. But Fig hated being in the hospital surrounded by the medicinal smell. Though a successful IT professional now, he had childhood leukemia and used to be in and out of hospitals. Still he agreed to keep an eye on Roxie. What will happen when Roxie finds out that Fig is there to spy on her? Is she really taking the drugs? Who is it who keeps ringing Roxie and threatening her?
Then all mayhem lets loose as the internet hops with Roxie's sex video! Some pervert had videotaped her after she was too drunk to know any better. When she refused his blackmailing effort for the drugs, he lets the video go live on the net. How Roxie and Fig overcome this criminal element makes for a thrilling read.
Roxie's house catches fire by her mentally ill mother and while her mum is hospitalized, Roxie moved in with Fig. For the first time Roxie realizes she actually desires a man and wants him desperately without being drunk. The chemistry between them just sizzles and crackles. The sensuality in the love scenes is electrifying.
And then again for the first time, Roxie realizes that she is not alone after all when all her friends stand by her side, to help her deal with her hoarder mum, and clean up her house. She is overcome with emotions. Though her brothers come but they're filled with avarice and don't care about their mother at all.
THE NURSE'S NOT -SO- SECRET SCANDAL is a fast paced, thrilling story. For me personally, I learnt some things about both Roxie and Fig's mothers' mental illnesses. This story depicts realistically what happens if as Roxie, you're left all alone to deal with a parent suffering from a debilitating mental illness. And what happens to an only child like Fig, who had childhood leukemia and whose mother wanted to keep him sick so she could be known as the great sacrificing mother. How teenaged Fig finally broke away from his mother made for an interesting insight into teenage psych.
Wendy S Marcus has created characters which leap off the page and speak to you. Even if you don't like Roxie's character at the beginning with her smart mouth, you can still understand where she is coming from. With hindsight you can understand the author created Roxie to be not liked at first. Roxie's character was created to hit the very rock bottom and then her inspirational journey back up is astounding. You have to applaud this author for tackling some of the untouched subjects and make it work. This heroine is not your traditional blushing virgin and neither is the hero a medic. Yet this story works as it has all the medical drama you can hope for from the line. The Nurse's Not -So- Secret Scandal fulfills all and then some the high expectations you have from author Wendy S Marcus.

Roxy is a strong character and jumps off the page. Fig is layered and real. Both are living in the shadow of their mothers and have a lot to get through to find their HEA. It really feels like these two characters are meant to be together (despite the mountains of baggage they both have). And I loved that the resolution didn't involve the heroine getting pregnant.
The book goes at a cracking pace and has smashing dialogue. I didn't want it to end! This book stands alone, but is the third in the series and it was great to catch-up with the previous characters. I think this book might be Marcus's best book yet (but all were great and different in tone - no cookie-cutter characters here). Although its a Medical anyone who loves the Harlequin Sexy line and is looking for something different should definitely read Marcus's books.
