    Official Book Blurb:

    What is a poor anatomist to do? Twenty pounds, wasted, up in smoke when a beautiful young woman wakes up on the dissection table. Someone has made a ghastly error. Dr Richard Craven, an ethical doctor, has but one choice, to nurse the girl back to health and restore her to her family. That’s when his troubles start. She can’t remember anything, only her first name, and she isn’t even sure about that. As his household helps her to recover her strength and her memories trickle, then flood back, their mutual attraction buds into a flowing passion.
    Unfortunately one of the things she’s conveniently forgotten was her arranged engagement to a vulgar, but wealthy son of a Northern industrialist. Not only that, but there is some deep dark secret about Dr Craven that her father believes makes him completely ineligible.
    Resolving the resulting tangle in this sweet historical romance takes the combined efforts of the doctor’s once profligate brother, the Earl of Craven, a displaced French Royal, le Duc de Bourbon, and the visit of a mysterious French Baron to the sacred floor or Almack’s.

    My Review:

    The Curious Profession of Dr.Craven was just a joy to read. The book starts with a grave robbing and a little too warm corpse. The graverobber is nervous about this body and keeps thinking she is moving. when she come to she is about to be dissected and she is confused and isn’t quite sure where she is, or where she isn’t.

    The story that unfolds is so endearing. The characters are cleverly written. I did not know what to expect from one chapter to another. The children added to the story so well.

    This is my first encounter with R. Harrison but I like the style. I like the mysterious atmosphere throughout the entire book.

    Of course, ​Dr. Richard Craven is adorable. He is kind, smart, generous, and intelligent. All the things you would like to see in a hero. He has more depth than you would imagine from a local doctor. As the book moves us forward, we see there is more than meets the eye.

    When we meet Henrietta, she is a poor young lady that has been presumed dead and brought back to life. She lets you feel her confusion, her worry, and her confusion. I enjoyed the evil characters, as they were also more than expected. In all, this book was a pleasant few hours to read. I was provided this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion. I have given that and when I say it earned the hearts, I mean it. The book is full of research that gives it more historical validity than just a romance. This is a story that is not graphic and any age would love it. A sweet story with twists and turns. I hope to find more books from R. Harrison.


    If you enjoy sweet historical romances that are not graphic or explicit, then this book would be perfect. The story has interesting concepts for the time and bright, easy to enjoy characters. With references to see where the ideas in the book are from. I enjoyed this book and was glad I requested it to review.
