Nightshift in the ER is a beast, and as a nurse with several years under my belt in that warped and twisted world, I know how to survive. My most important rule just after 'never touch anything that is wet and isn't your own without gloves' is 'don't play with the doctors.' I have never broken that rule, but I've never been tempted like I am when Dr. Hutchison joins the nightshift.
My first night in the ER and I get off to on the wrong foot with the beautiful, brown-eyed nurse, Libby. Despite a rough start, the attraction between us is undeniable. When she and I find ourselves alone, that attraction boils over. I can't keep my hands off her, and when she offers to finish what we've started, I gladly take her up on the offer. I never imagined the pleasure that was in store for me.
Enjoy this short erotic story, perfect for an afternoon read with its insta-lust, naughty nurse, and debauching doctor. The doctor is most definitely in - in more ways than one!

Can Micheil go through with the plans he swore to his father and clan he’d put into motion? Or will Seana be a casualty of a war she had no say in?
