What is the title of your book?
The Doctor's Deception
Where did the idea for the book come from?
I am an intensive care nurse with a background in cardiovascular open heart surgery recovery. Sometimes, a heart surgeon can be frustrating for a nurse. I took every one I worked with over the years and wrapped him up in a nice hawt package! More importantly, he had to be redeemable by the end of the story!
What genre does your book fall under?
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
It is published through Evernight Publishing
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Roughly three months. It was a fun story to write and mostly wrote itself.
Give a one sentence synopsis of your novel:
A stubborn heart surgeon is about to lose everything he's worked for and in order to attain his goal must tell a little white lie to the one ICU nurse who shows him the true meaning of teamwork and love.
What other works would you compare your story to?
I haven't read anything like it~but since I work in the medical field, I don't read medical romances. It's funner to write them! LOL
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
It was finally time to do something in my life that I wanted to always do, which was write.
What else might peak the reader's interest?
If you love shows like Greys Anatomy and ER, then you will enjoy my books which are based on what happens in a hospital setting. I describe actual treatments and standards of care that we use daily. I love romantic comedy and that is what I write. If you love to laugh and have an obsession with chocolate, then you will enjoy The Doctor's Deception.
Hard-headed, straight-laced Dr Stone Lassiter is one heart surgeon about to lose everything he's worked his entire career for. He is locked in a battle of wills against the nurses of the surgical intensive care unit of Deerborne County General. At first, the new doctor was definitely drool-worthy. Sexy or not, the nurses have had enough! Their secret weapon? Unsuspecting SICU nurse, Faith Daniels, a cool green-eyed blond that turns Dr Lassiter's head every time she's near. Poor Faith has the "worst luck" in drawing the short straw and is forced to work with Dr Lassiter repeatedly. Will the nurses' plan to have Dr Lassiter fall in love with one of their own work in softening him toward the nursing staff? Or will the little white lie Stone tells Faith to enlist her aid to obtain his goal destroy the fragile bond of love that has developed between them?
