REVIEW: Franklin Grant and Dina Hamilton are two skilled heart surgeons who fall in love. Franklin is Dina’s supervisor at the hospital, and an affair with a subordinate could damage his reputation and standing at the hospital if the news got out.  One night together and they find themselves in a full-fledged affair.  Franklin and Dina decide it’s worth the chance because they can’t stay away from each other. A tragedy with a patient put Franklin under scrutiny by the hospital board and is placed on forced leave pending the outcome of the hospital inquiry. In the interim, the hospital wants Dina to take his position. Because of a past betrayal with another woman, Franklin begins to wonder if that was Dina’s plan all along. After revisiting everything the two of them had shared, he quickly concludes that the woman he loves has too much integrity to do something so deceitful. He knows that whatever happens from this point they would get through it together.

Franklin is a renowned cardiothoracic surgeon and the chief of cardiac surgery at Jameson Memorial Hospital. He is a man known for his total dedication to his work and his patients. Dina is a brilliant cardiac surgeon working under the guidance of Franklin Grant on a fellow to honed her already near-perfect surgical skills.

Donna Hill has done it again! WHAT THE HEART WANTS is a great story and great beginning to this new series.  This page-turner has some drama, and the romance is fantastic! Once I started reading, I did not want to put it down.  The characters are so real, and the storyline is fantastic. The pacing is good, with no chance of a slowdown. I think the title is perfect, given that the two main characters are heart surgeons. Very clever writing. Franklin and Dina make a great team both professionally and personally. I love the glimpse into the inner workings of the hospital with just the right amount of gossip to make it believable. The hospital grapevine was definitely working. With Washington, D.C. as a backdrop, this author covers every angle to make this story one you would want to read over and over again.

WHAT THE HEART WANTS is the first entry in The Grants of DC Series, and it promises to be a hot one. Get in on the ground floor and pick up your copy today.
