A doctor and patient in an insane asylum. Not a genial setting for a romance, but if you're looking for something a little different and creepy, this works. It seemed initially there was a total lack of interest/consent on the part of the patient, Mr. White. But the good doctor backs off, and it isn't until Mr. White is clearly willing and interested does anything occur. I liked this story quite a lot and read it in one sitting. I was dreading an unhappy ending, given the tone of the book and the rather hopelessness of the situation. But no, an HEA does, indeed, arrive, and was much appreciated. The lobotomy angst sub-plot was nicely played. A nice 'palette cleanser' from my usual sea of contemporary romances.
