Comfort Djan is the heroine I’ve been waiting for.
Heartbreaking loss has left her scarred and with deep-seated fears that make night-time the enemy, but as a former army reservist, and a medical doctor, Comfort is cool, calm, and committed.
Until she encounters Commander Akin Solarin.
From humble beginnings, Akin’s commitment to his job and his love for the sea come before everything, until he meets Comfort.
When Comfort and Akin are forced to work together, the gruff military man takes quiet pride in her strength but knows it masks pain he wishes he could release her from.
While Comfort Djan sees herself as nothing special and struggles with survivor’s guilt, others can’t help but see her intelligence and confidence in her abilities. There are those who immediately discount and underestimate her… and yes, objectify her, but she takes it all in stride, undeterred from her job. She’s not snippy, sassy, or whiny, but angering her is not something anyone should do.
Although Akin positions himself as Comfort’s protector, he soon comes to realize she doesn’t need saving, she needs forgiveness… from herself. Determined to protect her from the dangers of his job and the merciless pirates of the sea, no one saw the danger closest to them.
I loved everything about Healing His Medic. Two people with high emotional walls, see in each other what they hide from the world. The growing relationship between Comfort and Akin isn’t a battle of the sexes or even of wills… they’re each their own worst enemy battling with self, afraid to believe they can have it all.
The story weaves its way to a great ending full of compromise and partnership all for love.
I’ve read several books by this author over the last few years and enjoyed their African settings and cultural flare, but this one is different (and my favorite)—she’s gone to the next level with the slow build and suspense. This is another of those reads I volunteered to review an ARC… and purchased the book before I reached the end.

The premise is that Comfort, a British MSF doctor of Ghanaian origin, is assigned to be the emergency relief physician on board a pirate-hunting ship on the coast of West Africa, after their regular doctor is injured. Akin, a commander on a Joint West African Naval ship, is assigned responsibility for her safety especially as she’s the only woman on the ship. With a devastating tragedy in her past, being the only woman on the ship is the least of Comfort’s problems especially with her growing attraction to Akin. Akin on the other hand is married to the sea and has a failed marriage behind him to prove it, but for the first time begins to wonder what if.
This was a really enjoyable read. I know very little about the navy or the military in general so plausibility was fine for me. I find nothing romantic in piracy so I was happy that the plot centered on a ship that was fighting this scourge. I loved the characters and what they meant to each other, I liked that the plot was kind of gentle. I liked that Comfort was a competent and strong and great at her job even as she tackled grief, I liked Akin’s super relatable back story, and I appreciated that bit of suspense at the end and the epilogue. This is one of my favourites I’ve read from this author and I recommend it if you’re looking for a gentle military read.
