Adam lost his fiancée to a car bomb three years earlier when he and Travis served together in Doctors Without Borders. Travis is afraid to give away his heart after watching the pain that Adam went through.
When a chance encounter leads to Adam and Travis pursuing a Dom/sub relationship with Loreen, all three believe they are on the road to healing. Until an ER victim who too closely resembles Adam's fiancé is brought in on the anniversary of her death, and Adam bolts without telling Travis or Loreen where he's gone.
Can Loreen overcome her own past grief and help Adam and Travis heal from their loss, or has she lost them both forever?

Trauma effects everyone differently. In HEALING HER RACY DOCTORS, Loreen, Adam, and Travis can't hope for a future together until they deal with the trauma in their pasts.
Since Loreen Newhouse's fiancé was killed, she has pretty much kept to herself and dealt with her loneliness by working as much as possible. Even though Loreen is hesitant to open herself up to the pain of loss again, she can't help but admire Drs. Adam Eastman and Travis Randall. Adam and Travis worked together for Doctors Without Borders and both returned home as different men. Not only did they have to face the ravages of war on a daily basis, they also had to deal with the death of Adam's fiancée, and Travis' friend, in a car bomb. Adam becomes withdrawn and emotionally disconnected, which makes Travis believe that it isn't worth the risk of loss to ever fall in love.
The three of them have a shared history of loss and violence that seems to be what draws them together; it's that same shared history that eventually tears them apart. When the three of them finally admit their attraction to one another, their relationship progresses quickly and there is no denying the sexual heat between them all. However, as the trio becomes more emotionally connected, they discover there are still unhealed wounds that may keep them from ever finding true happiness. Not only do the three of them have to deal with their individual traumas, they also have to learn to understand how loss has affected the others in different ways.
This story was really beautiful and the author did a great job writing about coping with trauma. All three of the characters have experienced different traumas and all three have dealt with their trauma in different ways. When Adam sees a patient in the ER who looks like his deceased fiancée, it triggers a series of events that make all three characters question their own recovery and their ability to be in a relationship.
Ms. Rose does a great job writing the strong emotions associated with not just loss but loss due to violence. She also touches on secondary trauma--Travis not wanting to fall in love because he saw how much it hurt Adam to lose his fiancée, something people often overlook. Of course, love wins in the end, but it is not easy. I appreciated the fact that the characters had to fight their way back to each other and that a simple "I love you" didn't make years of suffering simply disappear. This book, as with all the other Racy books, has steam, love, and great, unique characters.
