Doctor D’s Orderly Affair


 Title: Doctor D’s Orderly Affair
Series: Doctors of Eastport General
Author: C. A. King 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 



Add on Goodreads

COVER 


BLURB 

Doctors of Eastport General is a brand-new Contemporary Romance series. Get ready for all the naughty nurses, dirty doctors, and patient shenanigans that take place in Eastport General.

Every hospital had at least one—a Dr. D—or the equivalent thereof. The thread which strung them into the same category was their absolute flawlessness. Gender varied from place to place, but at Eastport General the physician in question was a man:

Dr. Desmond Danielson had all the tools necessary for an evening of pure pleasure…

The suave demeanour.

The pearly white smile.

The full head of hair, nary a strand out of place. Not even a tornado could best his style.

He played sports.

He saved lives.

He won trophies and awards.

He was well-read, well-established, and in any clothes other than a medical coat with a stethoscope draped around his neck instead of a scarf, he would have appeared too young for the job. No one even truly knew his age. No one cared.

Everyone loved him. And, of course, he was hotter than the tropics on a blustery afternoon during the peak of summer.

There was only one problem: all that perfection only lasted for one night.

BLURB

I would forever be grateful that Silas Huxley, Damon Brooks, and Jude Vanderbilt saved me from my own broken darkness.

They were there to catch me–as friends, and now as roommates and lovers. Three enigmatic, brutal gods who would do anything for me–even kill.

Because someone connected to Silas is planning our demise–someone with a past that doesn’t want to be found.

Despite this, I know the guys will keep me safe. After all, I belong to them now.

I’m confident the four of us can withstand anything.

Until Jude disappears.

And I’ll rot in hell before I let anyone hurt him.

Welcome to the dark side of Savage Ink, motherf*ckers.

Savage Gods (Savage Hearts Book Two) is a spinoff of the Ruthless Royals duet, which does not have to be read first. It is a full-length enemies-to-lovers/bully reverse harem romance, and while it doesn’t end with a true cliffhanger, there will be unanswered questions. It is advised to read the series in order.

EXCERPT

My eyes scan the wall of crosses–the wall everyone sees first thing when they walk into this house. “Why doesn’t Silas take those down?” I ask, crossing my arms.
Jude walks over to the wall and takes one of them off, holding it in his hand. The edges are smooth and long, though the other crosses are all different shapes and sizes. He holds the cross out to me.
“He hasn’t changed a single thing since we moved in two years ago. I think he’s scared of disturbing the spirits,” Jude finishes, chuckling. “Here. Maybe if we take one down at a time, he won’t notice.”
I shake my head. “I don’t want it.”
He tilts his head slightly and walks over to me, pinning me against the wall as he brushes the long end of the cross down my chest slowly.
“Don’t you?”
My chest rises and falls as the smooth edge runs lower, sending shivers down my spine as it teases the sensitive skin between my ribs, and then my belly button, before snagging in the waistband of my pants. He maneuvers it lower, underneath my pants, and I inhale sharply.
“Jude,” I warn, my breathing rapid now as I crane my neck over his shoulder. I don’t see Silas or Damon.
He doesn’t answer my plea. Instead, he works the button of my pants and unzips them, pulling them low enough to give him access.
“This won’t do,” he murmurs, scooping me up and carrying me to the foyer table. Brushing everything onto the ground, I gasp as he sets me down and pulls my pants off completely. Clicking his tongue, he takes a step back. “Red panties today.”
I swallow my words. My skin is on fire, and I eye the way his hands smoothly grip the cross. He can’t. He wouldn’t–
“Spread your legs, Lennon.”
A thrill shoots through me, electrifying me and sending a gush of wetness to the space between my legs. My clit throbs as I scoot back and place my hands behind me, leaning back slightly. My nipples are taught against my t-shirt, and the fabric brushes against them as I wait for Jude to do whatever depraved thing he’s going to do, whether or not I like it. I spread my legs, and he groans so low I think I feel him more than hear him.
“That’s right, princess,” he growls. Moving closer, he takes the cross and runs it up the inside of my left calf.
Slowly.
So torturously slowly.
“Jude–”
“Do you want me to stop?” he asks, moving it higher. It’s cold, but I’m hot, so it feels amazing against my flushed skin. My whole body convulses as the cool metal hits the inside of my thigh. Goosebumps erupt along my skin.
“No,” I whisper, my voice pleading. I look down, analyzing the black cross. The long part is round, smooth, and thick–shaped like a pipe, except it tapers off slightly at the bottom. It’s made of some kind of metal, so I know it’ll be cold. My eyes flick back up to his fiery irises, and I spread my legs wider in answer.
Jude runs the cross higher, pulling my panties down my legs and discarding them to the side. I hiss as he uses the cross to do slow circles in the area between my thigh and pussy, taunting me.
I move my hands forward and clutch the edge of the table tightly as he spreads my lips with the edge of the cross, playing with them until I drop my head back. Bucking my hips, I wait for him to insert the giant rod.
“What shall I do with this cross?” Jude asks, antagonizing me.

BLURB

I came to Hawaii to get answers about my sister’s death.

But that all changes when I meet her.

Beautiful. Charming. Haunted.

And the last thing I need in my life.

But that doesn’t mean I can stay away from her, a powerful force pulling me toward her when all rationale tells me to keep my distance.

So we make an agreement.

One week. No names. No falling in love.

It’s the perfect plan.

Until a shocking revelation shakes my foundation to its core, leaving me to question everything I thought I knew about her.

I knew this temptation was a disaster waiting to happen.
I didn’t realize it would be so devastating.

EXCERPT

“And how about my beautiful wife?” Nick turned to me, expression shifting.

Less loving. More…dangerous.

“Would you like to see what I brought back for you?” His lips curved up in the corner, eyes flaming with something sinister and dark. But it was gone in a heartbeat, making me question my sanity, as always seemed to be the case.

I nodded subtly.

He stepped toward me, gripping my hip in a possessive hold. I sucked in a shaky breath at the contact. He leaned closer, eyes darkening.

“How do you ask?”

My pulse kicked up. Most other couples would think this a fun game. A play on dominant versus submissive. But nothing about the way Nick held me felt playful. It felt…threatening.

“Please, Nick,” I said, partly begging for him to let me go. Partly begging for whatever it was he brought me, even though a voice in my head told me I shouldn’t want anything to do with it.

Pushing down the trepidation swimming in my stomach, I swallowed hard, brightening my expression as I forced out a charming smile.

“Can I please see what you’ve brought me? You always spoil us.”

He crushed his lips to mine. I moaned, playing the part of his affectionate, loving wife, even though everything about this felt…wrong.

But I had no proof. He’d never hit me. Never hurt me. In fact, he did everything to give me my dreams at the expense of his own.

“Because you’re my Hera,” he murmured against my lips. “My goddess. My queen. My immortal beloved.” He trailed kisses along my jawline before pressing his mouth back to mine.

When he finally pulled away, much to my relief, he kept his eyes trained on mine. Reaching into the inside pocket of his tweed jacket, he removed a long, gold chain, a tulip dangling from the end, the bulb a pear-shaped opal. The gold appeared tarnished and worn. This definitely wasn’t something he’d found at the corner jewelry store.

“When I saw this, I knew there was only one neck on this planet it would look good on.” He stepped behind me, brushing my long, blonde waves off my shoulders.

I remained frozen as he secured the piece. It was delicate, weighing mere ounces. But it felt so heavy around my neck, suffocating and cutting off my air.

I had no reason to think this was anything but a generous gift from a doting husband.

But, somehow, I knew there was more to it.

That he simply didn’t walk into an antique store and purchase this.

That there was something incredibly malevolent about how he came to be the owner of this necklace.

I wanted it off me. Wanted nothing to do with it.

But I didn’t have a choice.

With Nick, I never had a choice.

Title: Ranger Danger
Author: L.A. Wayward
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: February 11, 2022


BLURB

You’re mine now

His raw words bring me to my knees
Making me beg for the freedom I crave
He found me alone in the woods
Brought me to his self-imposed prison to wait out the storm, locking us together in a forbidden embrace

To play with
To own
To mark as his

Releasing me from my dirty cage
He wants everything
All my firsts, staking claims for any man who dares to question him
His past still haunts his dreams, and I’m just the girl to release his demons

Can this Alpha, this lone older wolf, turn out to be my salvation?
The one to get my dark, twisted thoughts?
Yes, he takes what he wants, but will he ask me to stay once he finds out the reason why I’m here?

This Ranger is Danger personified
The only question is:
Will he fight for me, or let me go when the storm ends?

EXCERPT

“Trust me when I say I’m the wolf in the woods I warned you about,” he grounds out.
“I wasn’t insinuating,” I whisper. “I saw the picture of you in your uniform and thought—”
“You thought I had honor? You thought I wouldn’t take what I want when it’s being offered to me in such a pretty package.” His voice is hard with an edge, while he runs a single finger down my leg.
A shiver goes through me as wetness builds between my thighs. Without thinking, I open my knees a little, his eyes following each movement. What I would give to have his hands trail up and down my legs and slip between the waistline of my pants so he can feel how wet he makes me. How turned on I am knowing he could easily overpower and fuck me.
His eyes slip over my body, and the corner of his mouth twitches. I shudder because it isn’t a kind smile, it’s something entirely different.
I swallow hard when reality hits me. I’m alone in a stranger’s cabin, snowed in for days. Fear and excitement take hold of me, my stomach doing a little backflip.
He can do anything to me.
Anything he wants, and I would let him if he asked.

ROMANCING THE SHERIFF
BY MIA BRODY

Who meets the world’s hottest sheriff while wiping their rear with poison ivy? Me, that’s who.

Zoey

I’m Zoey. A romance writer, geeky girl, and hot mess extraordinaire. I’ve never met a situation I couldn’t make more awkward or a man I couldn’t embarrass myself in front of.

Case in point, I was relieving myself in the bushes after a really long trek up the mountain. Only to accuse the hot sheriff who stops to help of spying on me.

But Brock isn’t like everyone else. He looks at me and sees something he likes. Still, this thing between us is too good to be true, right? After all, I write fairytales. I don’t live them.

Brock

Zoey isn’t the typical tourist I meet. She’s young, adorkable, and so damn sweet. Definitely too sweet for the dirty things I have in mind when I see that cute derrière.

She’s just passing through which means this can only be a vacation getaway romance. Except that doesn’t sit right with me.

Before she leaves, I plan to show this beautiful novelist that I want to star in the love story of her life. Will she let me be her prince charming this Valentine’s Day?

ROMANCING THE SILVER FOX
BY KHLOE SUMMERS

Clover
It’s a small tavern, they only sell IPA, and there’s a view of the mountains that I can’t get enough of. It was supposed to be the perfect spot to unwind. And I think it would’ve been, if the big, bearded man on the opposite side of the bar would stop staring at me. God, he’s twice my age. Still, he looks pretty sexy holding that guitar, strumming along with the band on stage. I should say hi after this set. No, I should avoid eye contact at all cost. Actually, maybe I’ll give him one flirty grin and see what happens. I’m on vacation after all.

Atlas
She’s too young for me to be ogling over. I know that right away, but I can’t help myself. She’s got a dramatic look about her that says she has a story to tell and I want to know every syllable of it. That said, I’m sure she won’t even give me the time of day. My buddies tell me all the time I’m about as gruff as they come. I blame that on the work I do. My day to day life results in a less than eloquent conversations. Still, there’s something drawing me toward her and smooth talking or not, I can’t let this one get away.

ROMANCING THE QUARTERBACK

A curvy gal plus quarterback steamy instalove short.

Mina
All I want to do is spend some time with my girlfriends on our valentines getaway, not go toe-to-toe with the burly, cover model worthy guy who’s staying in the room next door. And when I find out he’s a pro football player, that lands him firmly in the swipe left category.

Palmer
Winning the championship game should have made me the happiest man alive. Instead, I’m hiding out at a mountain lodge trying to keep a low profile and trading verbal barbs with the curvy gal in the room next door. When we get stuck in a snowstorm together, every part of me wants to give into the temptation to kiss her senseless. She’s gotten under my skin, and after one night, I know I need to make her mine.

ROMANCING THE MOUNTAIN MAN 
BY KAT BAXTER

Paige
There was really no way for me to know that the helpful woman from the sheriff’s office who gave me a camping permit was sending me to camp on her brother’s land in a misguided attempt at matchmaking. Or that he’d be so annoyed when he found me setting up my tent. The barrel-chested, plaid wearing, bearded giant growls and scowls more than he smiles and talks. Still, the whole grumpy mountain man thing is really working for me and all my lady bits.

Camden
I want to think the curvaceous romance author setting up a tent in my backyard is a lunatic. Instead I can’t stop fantasizing about sneaking into that tent to keep her warm. The military left me too scarred–inside and out–to have anything to offer a woman as sweet as Paige. It doesn’t make me not want her though. When the snow comes and she really does need some warmth, I’m ready to give her my body. Come morning I’ll realize she’s already stolen my heart.

ROMANCING THE BILLIONAIRE
BY FERN FRASER

 A dare, a lie and a vacation fling that just might lead to a forever kind of love 

Emmy
I might be young and idealistic, but I set goals in life. One of which–being a successful romance author–I’m already living. While at a writer’s retreat with my besties, I drink too much Champagne and let my secret slip. I may write about dirty things but have no real life experience. My friend suggests a solution and the smoking hot mountain resort groundskeeper seems like the perfect candidate to help solve my ‘V-card ‘problem.’

Grif
I have more money than I know what to do with, and giving it away makes me happy. I’m tired of people judging me by the number of zeroes in my bank account. Being burned one too many times leaves me feeling guarded and private.

I own Big Bear Lodge mountain resort, and when a sweet and way-too-young-for-me guest assumes I work here, I don’t correct her. After one heated night spent in each other’s arms, we both want more. I won’t let any other man have her, but in order to claim her, I have to come clean. She values honesty above all things and we started with a lie. Will she accept me when she finds out who I really am?

Cassia Murphy
I’m used to getting fan mail from readers.
I am not used to being told off by bossy cowboys.
But that’s exactly what Cord Decker does when he emails me.
According to him, I know nothing about the cowboys I write.
I’ll never admit it to him, but he’s right.
Which is exactly why I suggest his hometown for the annual Galentine’s retreat.
I can’t strangle him in real life.
But no one ever said I can’t make him sweat in my next book.
I just have to keep him from figuring out who I really am…
And keep from falling for him and his gruff ways.
Easy peasy, right?
Ha. I’m in way over my head.

Cord Decker
I don’t know what prompted me to email Cassia Murphy.
But I can’t keep the curvy blonde author out of my head.
I never expected to find her running for her life from one of my bulls.
Didn’t expect to fall hard for her smart mouth either.
She thinks I don’t know who she is.
She’s wrong.
This sassy little romance author is mine.
I plan to teach her everything she needs to know about cowboys…
In bed and out of it.

When this older cowboy rescues a hot mess author from a crazy bull, she learns a whole lot more than she anticipated. If growly cowboys, sassy heroines, and laugh-out-loud comedy make your heart pitter-patter, you’ll love Cord and Cassia’s steamy-sweet story!

Olivia Holland doesn’t believe in astrology, Tarot, smudging, or aura cleanses. She might change her mind about manifesting. Does it count if she’s fake engaged to the man of her dreams? Even though he’s been her best friend for years, Liv doesn’t know how to communicate on a deeper level with Ollie. When she discovers that their baby making pact is a success, she has two choices. Either crack his secret code or walk away to let him live his best life. Unfortunately, their friends and family keep complicating an already complex task. What Liv needs is a little help from Cupid. She’s going to learn a love language that has no words.

Oliver Cucinelli does not count keeping secrets among his strongest skills. He’s never been good at lying, but he’s painfully familiar with the phrase “fake it ‘til you make it.” He didn’t plan on a fake engagement to the love of his life as a way to win her over, but he’s not going to waste this opportunity to research exactly, specifically, categorically how Liv defines love. Communication is key. Unfortunately for Ollie, communication is also not his strongest skill. To complicate matters, Liv is acting strange. How can he learn the deepest desires of a woman whose personality seems to change every hour? Language is hard, so he’s going to let his heart do all the talking.

EXCERPT

I’m not sure if I believe in heaven or hell. I definitely don’t subscribe to my mom’s latest devotion to Tarot readings. She pulled a nine of Pentacles for me yesterday. Whatever the heck a pentacle is. It’s supposed to represent a period of peacefulness and satisfaction after working hard to achieve a lifetime goal. I hate to break it to her, but I feel anything but satisfied in my current life circumstances.
I wish I could be more like my best friend, Oliver, who orders his life around the rules of logic. My New Year’s resolution is to abandon the brash nature of following my heart and listen to my brain instead. It’s not going great so far. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’m screwed—not at all literally. If there is a place of eternal damnation for bad behavior, then I’m doomed.
No spiritual being would be this turned on at 7am in the morning while sitting on a barstool at a kitchen island in someone else’s house. Especially not after proposing a vow of celibacy to a man with a voracious sexual appetite.
In my defense, no mortal woman would be unaffected by the sight I’m being treated to at such an ungodly hour of the morning. If I have to be awake, then at least I don’t hate what I’m staring at—a fine, shirtless man moving around in his kitchen like he does every day. The muscles in his back ripple as he reaches for a glass in the cupboard. The flannel pajama pants that are already slung low on his waist sink a little lower when he bends to retrieve a fresh carton of juice from the back of the refrigerator.
He gives me a delicious view of his profile when he turns to pour his drink. I tilt my head to the side, studying the ridges and planes of his sculpted body. That V though. Mmmmmm. Good stuff. My gaze sinks a little lower to where a very defined bulge greets me.
“Good morning! You haven’t taken a ride on me in a while. Interested in smashing the deal you so recently brokered?”
“Yes, sir,” I whisper. Smashing sounds amazing right now.
“Did you say something?” Ollie asks.
My cheeks heat as I snap my gaze to my best friend’s face. “Uh, just talking to my coffee.”
He raises a single eyebrow behind his glasses. God, the man makes glasses look so sexy. “Since when do you talk to your coffee?”
“Since forever.” It’s not a lie. I just usually have my wits about me enough not to do it when anyone else can potentially overhear me.
Ollie takes a seat on the stool beside me. He gazes at my mug of liquid happiness with a furrowed brow. “What do you say to it?”
“Mmm, you feel so good sliding down the back of my throat. I love your warmth, your flavor. I get such a rush every time I drink you that I never waste a single drop.” I lick my lips for emphasis.
Ollie wiggles on his seat. That defined bulge hiding in his flannel pants grows a little more defined. “I had no idea you loved coffee so much.”
“I do,” I confirm, taking another sip.

AUTHOR BIO


Kata Čuić lives in Pittsburgh, PA with her husband and three teens. No one told her life was gonna be this way. She holds a degree in Linguistics with a minor in Religious Studies from the University of Pittsburgh. Her plans of becoming a pediatric neurosurgeon were foiled by OChem 1. Fortunately, she’d been making up stories in her head since the days of her imaginary friend, Choosy. Putting pen to paper, er…fingers to the keyboard…came surprisingly naturally after her aforementioned teens decided it was time for them to cut their respective cords.

Kata writes everything from angst-filled YA series to standalone rom-coms and has been known to dabble in a bit of paranormal on the free stories section of her website. She believes nice guys shouldn’t have to finish last (except in the bedroom where she prefers an alpha between the sheets but a gentleman in the streets), and that the surest way to a woman’s heart is through laughter and food.
