We haven’t had a romance or a “friday fiction” post in a while. Here is your fix for the week. This story is about a doctor named Mary, evidently destined for spinsterhood. Of course there is a the local playboy Rafe and he starts putting the moves on our poor, love starved doctor. Of course he gets the girl and it is more than a casual affair. But I bet you knew that.

  1. The bit about the local herbalist sounds uncomfortably like the racist witch-doctor figure in some old movies (“The white man’s medicine will anger the spirits! You must come to me for all your health-related concerns!”)

    1. I was willing to let it slide until I saw the interior page describing the receptionist and her ‘gloriously kinky’ hair. I mean, at least it’s a positive reference to black women’s hair, but could it be more objectifying!?

  2. Is the curandera named Ultima because Rafe Anaya and Rudolfo Anaya are awfully similar. I feel a ship forming. Does anyone else ship authors? LOL
