Sweet Medicine, Book One: Misled
Karen Carver is a doctor who volunteers at a free clinic two days a week. The clinic is run by a local corporation, Gregory Industries. Its founder, Benton Gregory, was raised in the same neighborhood where the clinic is located. Karen, often frustrated by the lack of available budget at the clinic, agrees to help investigate missing medications when a man she believes to be Gregory Industries’ accountant asks for her assistance.
Karen, single for far too long, finds the accountant overwhelmingly attractive. When they meet again so she can report what she has discovered, she finds it difficult to concentrate on anything other than the dimple in his cheek. However, just as she is beginning to give in to the attraction she feels for him, she learns that he is not who she thinks he is. The accountant, it turns out, is actually Benton Gregory himself.
Karen was raised by a self-made man, a father with a quick temper. Karen has made it her goal not to be anything like her father. Therefore, when Benton asks her out to dinner in an effort to apologize for misleading her, she refuses. The last thing she wants is a man like her father in her life and that is exactly what Benton appears to be. It would be much easier to resist his constant advances, if he wasn’t the most attractive man Karen has ever met.
Sweet Medicine, Book Two: Misunderstood
Dr. Karen Carver has spent five years trying to put her past behind her and move on. She rarely trusts easily. This is the case with Benton Gregory, the billionaire business man whose corporation runs the free clinic where Karen volunteers her afternoons two days a week. But when he pushed his way into her life, she gave an inch and watched him walk away as though her offer had no meaning to him.
Karen runs into Benton at the free clinic, only to have him look through her as though she is not even there. Then she discovers that her father, the one man who has destroyed her ability to trust, is trying to thrust his way back into her life. When Benton shows up to ask for forgiveness, Karen turns to him for the oblivion she craves to forget her past once again. But when the two men come face to face, Karen finds herself in the middle of a battle she doesn’t understand and one in which she has no idea which side to choose.
Sweet Medicine, Book Three: Miscomputed
Dr. Karen Carver is the daughter of a controlling man who is unhappy with her professional choices. In an attempt to force her back into his clutches, he offers her an ultimatum: come home or she will not have a part in the assets her mother intended for Karen to have. At the same time, Karen finds herself caught between the man she thought was interested in her and an investigation into wrong doings at the free clinic where she volunteers her time.
Karen engages a lawyer to handle her father, but steps away from the free clinic in an attempt to protect her heart from the lies and deception of its founder. However, when Benton Gregory lands on her doorstep and insists that the assertion by Dee Walton that he was her boyfriend was false. In fact, Benton was only with Dee in an attempt to find proof that she is the one who has been stealing from the free clinic.
Karen’s only experience with men is the overbearing ways of her father. At the same time she is trying to break free from his control, she finds herself increasingly drawn to a man who has the power to either make her happier than she ever imagined she could be, or destroy her so completely she would likely never recover.
