WITHOUT BORDERS
A Wanderlove Novel
Amanda Heger
Releasing April 19th, 2016
Diversion Books
For Annie
London, a month in a Central American rainforest means handing out mosquito
nets, giving medical aid, and teaching children about the birds and the bees.
With any luck, it will also land her application in the “accepted” pile at a
top tier medical school. But as soon as she steps off the plane, Annie realizes
her bug spray, feeble Spanish, and medical supplies won’t help her deal with
her new feelings for Felipe—her best friend’s older brother, who’s much hotter
than she remembers, and who also happens to be the doctor in charge of the
trip.
Gawking “volun-tourists” may keep
his family’s medical clinic afloat, but Dr. Felipe Gutierrez doesn’t have to
like them. Or the way they make snap judgments about his practice and the
people he cares for. But when his old crush, Annie, shows up to volunteer, her
killer curves and kind smile fan the embers of a flame Felipe didn’t realize
he’d been carrying. A flame that makes him question all his preconceived
notions.
As ideas and cultures clash, Annie
and Felipe must decide how far outside their comfort zones they are willing to
go—both for their work and for one another.
Excerpt-Banner

The girl strained and cried out, and it took everything Annie had to keep her upright. Felipe and the midwife swapped positions with every contraction, taking turns at easing the infant into the world. But with every push, Felipe’s face darkened and the midwife’s voice grew shriller as she half cried, half encouraged her daughter.

Annie had no idea how long it had been since they’d arrived in this dim hut, but every second that passed with those arms and legs dangling outside the womb made her heart ache.

In a rare moment between contractions, Felipe and the midwife began arguing. They pointed and stomped and shook their hands as the words flew between them.

Angela sagged in Annie’s arms, pale and sweaty.

“What’s going on?” Annie asked.

For a moment, the arguing stopped and they both stared silently at Annie.

The girl’s mother pointed and nodded at her, shrieking in Spanish, but Annie didn’t understand a word of it.

Felipe held up a hand. “We are having some trouble delivering the baby’s head.”

The midwife yelled and pointed again, and before Annie could ask what she was saying, the woman stood and nudged her out of the way with her rotund mid-section. She looped her arms through Angela’s and took the girl’s weight.

Annie stumbled, her muscles too tired to change position. She squeaked to something that resembled standing, but her back refused to straighten. Felipe looked at her, eyes flashing with fear.

“We need you to deliver the baby,” he said.
