Length: 59,480 words
Dr. Paul Johnston can’t get a set of dark, somber eyes out of his head, and the timing couldn’t be worse.
The last thing he needs is to fall for a patient. Not now, when he’s been put on paid leave pending review of a formal complaint. One that most likely accuses him of sexual harrassment or impropriety of some kind. It’s possible he let his newfound freedom as a divorced, out-of-the-closet gay man go to his head, but he’s certain — mostly — he didn’t do anything wrong. Now, he’s struggling to handle the reality that his job is in danger and the only guy he wants should be off-limits.
Zane Kavanaugh is floundering, and there’s only one man who soothes the storm inside him.
Reeling from an assault that landed him in the hospital and the painful estrangement from his family since coming out, Zane is trying to get his feet under him and find his independence. He moves in with a roommate and searches for a job, all while recovering from a fractured arm and cracked ribs. None of that hurts as much as the emotional damage he’s suffered. When he connects with Dr. Paul Johnston outside of the ER, he’s drawn to the man’s calm, collected manner. It doesn’t hurt that Paul’s lack of experience with men is sexy as hell, and so are his over-the-top responses when Zane gets his lips on him.
There’s no right time to fall in love.
Paul is afraid to start a relationship, and Zane can only handle so much more rejection. Will these two find their perfect moment, or will they realize you can’t choose when and how you fall in love? If Paul can’t take a risk, he may have to choose: the career he loves or the first man to capture his heart.
Bedside Manner is Book 1 of the Hearts & Health series. This is a spin-off series from the book Heart Trouble and includes characters from that novel, but it can be read as a standalone.
Paul was shaking under his hands, every inch of his body trembling while little broken sounds continued to wind up Zane. They kissed for a long time, so long Zane lost track of time. He just explored Paul’s mouth, trying not to suffocate under the eager tongue pushing farther and farther past his lips.
At last, he had to break away or risk suffocating. They both breathed heavily, staring at one another in shock.
Paul lifted two trembling fingers to his lips. He looked so much like a surprised maiden in some kind of romantic tale Zane had to suppress a laugh.
“You’re shaking,” he said, the hoarseness of his own voice surprising him.
A flush of pink colored Paul’s cheeks. “Sorry.”
“Don’t apologize,” Zane said, leaning forward to kiss that splotch of red on his cheek. “It’s sexy.”
Paul started to shake his head no, and Zane moved to his neck, kissing and licking at salty skin. He used his free hand to tug Paul’s polo loose from his pants so he could touch the doctor’s warm skin. His fingers ghosted over Paul’s abdomen, pausing to toy with the hair there.
The trembling intensified.
He traced a finger along the waistband of Paul’s shorts. “Do you want my mouth on you?” he whispered.
“Fuck,” Paul gasped harshly.
His hips jolted forward, and Zane felt the man’s hard cock press against his arm before Paul pulled back.
“Oh yeah, you do.”
