HaBO: Hero Walks in on Heroine Doing an Autopsy

This HaBO request comes from Katie, who is searching for this historical romance:

The heroine is the daughter of a physician who has since died. She is very interested in medicine. The hero is, I believe, a titled Englishman with either a son or ward. The hero and heroine marry. She continues to pursue her interest in medicine even as hero forbids her to do so.

At one point, while the hero is away, the heroine stays with an old doctor she knows to learn more. Hero finds her as she and the old doctor are doing an autopsy and is livid.

Late in the book, the heroine saves a boy while he is choking (?) after the hero begs her to do something. Heroine winds up leaving and leaves note for the hero that apologizes for her scandalous behavior.

She has nothing to apologize for!

    This sounds like SIlk and Steel by Kat Martin.

    Yup Silk and Steel. I just paged through it and confirmed the scene with the little boy.

    This book sounds interesting, but I need to know…does the ‘hero’ apologize?

    @Sarah Peach he sort of does. I don’t think the words I’m sorry ever come out but they have this whole big tearful snotfest at the end.

    Good work, bitchery!

    I was gonna say “wow, this feels like a MASR historical au fic with the numbers filed off.”

    @ Lisa F: What does that acronym mean? (MASR historical au fic) tried Google with no luck.

    “AU fic” would be “alternate universe fic”. The characters from MASR (I don’t know what that one is) in a completely different setting. “Historical”, you can parse yourself.

    MASR is Mulder and Scully Romance, I bet. I’ve only ever seen it as MSR. (sighs wistfully thinking about her youthful shipping days).

    No lie, I first thought people were talking about a variation on ASMR. But you know, if the tingly feeling is what you’re after, Mulder & Scully fic will certainly fit that bill. 😀
