Why do we love medical romances so much? Is it the tension of the high-pace work environment? The god-like, life-in-their-hands doctors? Or is it seeing strong, intelligent women who can still be fools when it comes to love? Whatever it is, there is no denying how much these sapphic medical romances get our heart rates going!
I’ve compiled a list of fourteen medical romances, and that includes some BoxSets, so there should be more than enough reading here to tickle that itch.
There are plenty of career-focused women too busy for love, opposites attract romances and enemies to lovers journeys fraught with difficulty. Whatever you love about the medical drama and happy-ever-after romance, it is here:
