This is another mini-review drawn from my ever-waning 30-year-old memories of books I read long ago.
Bantam Loveswept #605, Healing Touch by Judy Gill is a category romance from 1993.
Healing Touch had a rather memorable start. The heroine, Heather, bungee jumps totally naked. I forget what it was for, but it was supposed to be for a good cause.
And yes, apparently, naked bungee jumping is real! A Google search shows a quarter of a million hits. I admit I looked… Yikes!
Plus, there was a contestant on The Bachelor a few years back who did that on a date, causing some controversy. (I don’t watch tv and don’t keep up with this stuff.)
So you know right from the outset that the heroine isn’t the “traditional” super modest type.
Air Force Major Dr. Rob McGee instantly notices Heather. What guy wouldn’t?
But it’s more than her brash antics he takes notice of; it’s her body. Two years prior, they’d met and almost had a fling. Rob had been haunted by her ever since. But they had been wrong for each other back then, wrong then—and they were wrong for each other now.
He’s her total opposite. Rob’s a single dad, a straight-laced kind of guy, while Heather is more of the free-spirited type. Rob is looking for commitment. As a result, he knows she’s not the kind of woman he needs in his ordered military life.
Even so, he can’t help but pursue the lovely Heather.
Heather’s not so sure if she wants to be tied down rather than her usual of being tied up😉.
The two have great sexual chemistry, but Rob wants more than just sex. Can Heather overcome her fears of intimacy and take the biggest plunge yet?
Final Analysis of Healing Touch
Healing Touch is a pleasant romance between two strong-willed leads. Judy Gill did a fine job with this romance, but if it was not for the naked bungee-jumping introduction, I don’t know if I’d remember it as fondly as I do.
