The Doctor Everyone's Talking About
by Fiona McArthur
Zoe's Diary: I finally got up the nerve to start a conversation with the gorgeous Angus Raynor—talented surgeon, the hot topic at the hospital and infamous heartbreaker. I'm not worried about his reputation; after years of being treated like a china doll by my overprotective brothers, I'm about to strike out on my own on a round-the-world trip, so I don't want anything serious. But does Angus?

Zoe tried not to watch Angus walk away. She'd asked him to leave. Told him to, actually. Even from behind he made her weak with the urge to call him back. How inconsiderate was chemistry. She really didn't need to be attracted to this guy now. Especially after he'd shown his true colors today. He might as well have called her Squirt. She didn't want to listen to the little voice that suggested she might have overreacted a tad. So much for asking him to the party now.
Angus turned up at the Hill Street party an hour after Zoe arrived. She'd been almost ready to leave.
She'd even brought her brothers for someone to talk to, because she'd known she wasn't going to do anything to upset them that night. Tilly was very pleased with her, but Zoe just wasn't in the mood. She couldn't even smile at Ruby's creative vegetarian dishes, which usually amused her.
She didn't see Angus at first. He'd arrived with the senior registrar from the emergency department, who seemed to be eyeing Ruby from the bottom of the stairs. Then she felt someone's attention.
When she did see him, he moved across the room straight to her. He had his pirate shirt on and that pillaging smile.
"Anyone seen a big, tough lifeguard around here?"
Smart Alec. "You looking for one?"
"Can't seem to help myself." He glanced at the small space on the lounge beside her. No way was there enough room for him unless she sat on his lap. The idea wasn't altogether unappealing. "May I sit here?"
"Not if you're going to tease me."
"Perish the thought." He squeezed in and the space miraculously widened as the rest of the people on the lounge squashed up good-naturedly.
His arm crept along the lounge behind her and she guessed he really didn't have anywhere else he could put it. "So this is what hospital workers do on their time off, is it?"
"Only the sociable ones." She could feel the whole length of his hip against hers and the warmth of his arm building between them. She had to move or she was going to end up leaning across him to steal another one of those spontaneous kisses he seemed to inspire in her. "Let's dance."
