NEW RELEASE and GIVEAWAY
(Forever Book 3)
by Deanna Roy
Forever Sheltered is the third book in Deanna Roy's Forever series. Also available: Forever Innocent and Forever Loved (only $0.99).
Tina would rather sew up her girl parts with dental floss than go on a second date with a man. She's been dumped enough to know not to get attached.
So how DOES she end up half-naked in Surgical Suite B with Dr. Darion?
Dr. Darion has a lot to hide. His baby sister is the only family he has left, and he’s not leaving her treatment to some incompetent hack. But now he’s breaking every hospital rule imaginable. He lied about his sister so he can manage her care, and now he’s banging the art therapy teacher between patient rounds like a fraternity boy at a keg party.
But Dr. Darion and Tina have one thing going for them – a fierce passion for each other that just might obliterate all their doubts, and solve all their problems.
Forever Sheltered includes many favorite characters from Forever Innocent and Forever Loved, as well as the much-anticipated wedding of Gavin and Corabelle. It is a standalone HEA that does not require reading any other parts of the Forever series.
The voice that came from the door was like an icy blast. “Do you have any more personal questions that are completely out of line for your relationship with my patient?”
I whipped around. Dr. Darion stood in the door, glowering like a gargoyle.
“I—I was just asking about a song Cynthia performed for me yesterday.”
His eyes narrowed. I wondered what I possibly saw in him before, because now he was clearly the biggest jerk in the universe.
He snatched my arm and dragged me from the room.
I tried to wrench free as he moved us down the hall. “What is going ON with you?” I asked.
“Hush,” he said.
We turned down a narrow corridor, and he buzzed us through a door with his ID. I had never been in this part of the hospital and tried to figure out where we were. The back side of ICU, maybe.
He shouldered open a door marked Surgical Suite B. The room was dim and empty. Boxes were stacked along one wall, and it had an unused smell to it, stuffy and antiseptic. A pair of gurneys were pushed together next to a line of cabinets.
“What is this about?” I asked, jerking my arm out of his grasp.
“Why were you in Cynthia’s room asking questions?”
“Why are you dragging me through the hospital like a lunatic?”
We were only inches apart, me defiantly on my toes to try to eliminate the advantage of his height.
“You have no business questioning my patients or their family.”
Oh, I wanted to punch him. My hand curled into a fist. “You are an awful man, Darion Marks.”
His Adam’s apple bobbed up, then down, like he had swallowed something nasty. “I’m sorry I dragged you down here,” he said.
I shoved at his chest. “Sorry? You just embarrassed the hell out of me! No telling who saw that.”
I pushed him again. I was really in a fury. “Are you TRYING to get me fired?”
The contact between us sparked, like a match being lit. I forgot why I was mad. He was so freaking close. He wore cologne, just a hint of it. He smelled like heaven. My heart sped up. Crap.
I tried to think how to get out of this. I needed to just walk away. We were alone in a dark room.
Shoot. I could already tell my body was getting ahead of my head. It was calculating distance. Seeing how far I could push this man. How close I could get.
Remembering how long it had been since my last tryst with anybody.
I would have to do the one-and-done with Dr. Darion after all.
I leaned in, just to see what he would do.
WHEW! See what happens in Surgical Suite B in Forever Sheltered by USA Today bestselling author Deanna Roy.
Wow, I thought this book was amazing. I loved everything about this book, from the characters, storyline, and the backstories. There was enough drama, steam and romance to keep the readers wanting more. I loved the connection between Tina and Darion, I loved that I got the alternating point of views for both of them. They both were unique in their own way. I loved that amount of love and sacrifice that Darion had went through for his sister. This book was funny at times were I laughed out loud. Moments where I would almost tear up. There is so much to love about this book and I highly recommend you readers put this on your TBR list and bump it to the top you are not going to want to miss this book. This book would be rated higher than 5 stars if it were possible.
Character Interview With Dr Darion Marks
Dr Darion can be found in Forever Sheltered by USA Today bestselling author Deanna Roy. Today we’re going to learn more about Dr Darion Marks, a pediatric oncologist in San Diego who sometimes finds himself examining his new love in Surgical Suite B, when he’s not fixing her torn panties with duct tape.
So Darion, why a doctor?
It’s called parental pressure. No pre-med, no money for college. But I like it. It was a good call. I hate it when parents are right.
What’s the best part of your job?
Watching kids with cancer walk out of the hospital in remission. I’m still hoping we’ll get my little sister there. We’re working hard.
So tell me about Surgical Suite B.
(Coughs.) It’s an unused room –
You know what I’m talking about.
Some … things have happened there. Tina and I have sort of, well, broken it in, you might say.
What’s the best thing about Tina?
You mean other than her willingness to meet me in Surgical Suite B?
You started it.
Okay, okay. What’s one thing about her you would never change?
It’s an odd answer, I know, but her sadness. It connects her to her art. It’s the pulse point of her life. She lives life fully, even carrying that grief around. I admire her for that.
Learn more about this hot doctor and his new love, Tina, in Forever Sheltered.
