Gavin Jenkins, a brilliant young doctor with roots in poor, rural Kentucky, saves Baltimore heiress Cleo Talbot from unnecessary surgery after an incorrect diagnosis. The couple’s passionate attraction leads to marriage, and Cleo’s elite social and political connections propel Gavin to prominence. His patient list extends from the dressing rooms of world-famous artists to the heights of international society and, finally, to the inner sanctums of the White House itself.

When the richest man in the world, Nicky Kiskalesi, sets his eyes on billions of dollars of Egyptian oil, he must first topple a government. Nicky seeks Gavin’s help, a fateful decision that leads from the waterfront slums of Izmir to secret KGB assassinations and the corrupt thrones of the Middle East, as the fate of the world’s energy supply–and Gavin’s own life–hang in the balance.

HOOKED, set in the mid-20th century, is based on the real-life “youth doctors” of the 1960s and takes place in New York and Washington, a remote fishing village on the Turkish Riviera, Sweden, Vienna, Cairo and aboard Lydia, the world’s most beautiful yacht.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

The characters are fascinating, the story riveting, the settings fabulous. I want to go everywhere the book went including a voyage on that incredible yacht. I felt the same way other Amazon reviewers did. I couldn’t put it down.


Hooked is a powerful novel populated by larger than life men and woman who use the world as their playground. Great characters and fast moving. From start to finish I wasn’t able to put it down except to recharge the iPad.


Political intrigue and, a fight to the death for mid-Eastern oil that goes all the way from a millionaire’s yacht to the White House. If you love a fast-moving story with lots of plot twists, you’ll love HOOKED. I did.


The Harris’s keep us guessing as each development gives way to a new twist or an unexpected path. This is a fast-pace thriller that won’t let up until the final page.


Grabbed me at the first paragraph. Easy and fast read. Dr. Gavin is quite a compelling and egotistical figure and really reminds me of some NYC doctors 🙂 Now I want to read their other books!!

About The Author

Ruth Harris is a million-copy New York Times and Amazon bestselling author and a Romantic Times award winner for “best contemporary.” Ruth’s emotional, entertaining fiction has topped Amazon’s prestigious Movers and Shakers list and her highly praised novels have sold millions of copies in hard cover, paperback and ebook editions, been translated into 19 languages, sold in 30 countries, and were prominent selections of leading book clubs including the Literary Guild and the Book Of The Month Club. In their e-book editions, Ruth’s novels have been featured on Ereader News Today, Pixel of Ink and Kindle Nation Daily.

Ruth writes about strong, savvy, witty women who struggle to succeed and, when sometimes they don’t get what they want, they find something even better along the way. Critics have compared Ruth to Nora Ephron and Joan Didion and called her books “brilliant,” “steamy,” “stylishly written,” “richly plotted,” “first-class entertainment” and “a sure thing.”

With her husband, Michael, Ruth indulges her wild side and writes bestselling thrillers with vivid characters, international backgrounds and compelling plots. Their thrillers have made numerous appearances in the top 3 of Kindle’s prestigious Movers & Shakers list; in the Top 100 in the Kindle Store; Hooked has appeared continually on three Medical bestseller lists since its publication; #1 and #2 on two different Political bestseller lists; #14 on the Thrillers bestseller list.

Publisher’s Weekly called Ruth’s and Michael’s thrillers “Slick and sexy [with] all the sure elements of a big seller written by pros who know how to tell a story.” Readers have raved, calling their books “awesome,” “gripping,” “chilling,” “a must-read,” and “a real page-turner.”

It’s no surprise Ruth is a writer. Her Mom was an RN who had a trove of big-city hospital stories–some funny, some sad, some touching–and loved telling them. Her Dad loved words and language–Ruth still has his collection of dictionaries–and he is remembered by those who knew him as “always reading.” Ruth’s paternal grandfather was noted for his extensive library and both her parents were avid readers: her Mom loved popular fiction and her Dad bought four or five newspapers every day and subscribed to what seemed to be every magazine published–from Life and Look to BusinessWeek and Organic Gardening.

As a girl, Ruth wanted to be a professional ice skater. In her teens, she wanted to be a lawyer–a summer job in a law office cured her! After college, she got a beginner’s job in publishing and her career path–first as an editor and then as a writer–was set.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Ruth & Michael Harris and ENT appreciate it.
