First-term Sheriff is torn between duty and love when sexy Chief of Surgery is accused of medical malpractice and homicide.
Sheriff Kyle Monroe and Dr. Tess Sweeny are a couple, problem is no one knows. She has insisted on that since Kyle’s had been her patient and his twin brother Troy is Chief of Staff at the hospital. Troy doesn’t like her very much, not personally or professionally. She was hired by the board of directors as Chief of Surgery, before he was appointed.
Car accidents happen quickly and the results can be devastating for parents, in this case the news is bad for one set of parents and good for the other. In this case 2 prominent families are involved and the doctor has a not so pleasant history with one of them. Here is the scene that had me up in arms routing for the doctor.
A hand clasped down hard on her shoulder and wheeled her around. Preston Lloyd had followed her from the room and now glared at her, his jaw flexing and relaxing. “Excuse us, Sheriff. Tess and I need to have a private conversation,” he said and jerked Tess off to one side.
“I want to know why you killed my son. Did you think it would be the perfect revenge? The perfect way to get back at me? Did you? Did you? It was just a car accident. There’s no way my son could have died from it.” His voice vibrated with rage. His hands were rolled into tight fists at his side.
“That’s enough, Lloyd.” Kyle said, stepping between them.
“You bitch.” He leaned toward Tess, pointing his finger in her face. “I’ll have your license, Tess. I’ll personally see to it that you never kill another person.”
“Preston, I—” Her heart thumped painfully against her chest. Diamond Lakes was a small town with a tight medical community. Preston had enough political clout to ruin her career if he so chose.
“I said that’s enough.” Kyle pressed his hand on Lloyd’s chest to hold him away from Tess. All he was missing was the suit of armor.
She shouldn’t be relieved to have Kyle protecting her. She should be strong enough to stand up for herself. But she was so tired, so heartbroken, so fragile right now. A single word could reduce her to tears. When she laid her hand on Kyle’s back, the muscles were tense and strained.
Preston shoved Kyle’s shoulder to dislodge his restraining hand. “You stay out of this, Monroe— if you want to keep your job as sheriff. I can make your reelection campaign fizzle before it starts.” He glared at Tess over Kyle’s shoulder. “This is between me and this lying, vindictive murderer. She killed my son.”
Kyle placed his hand on Preston’s shoulder and squeezed. Preston flinched. “That’s more than enough. Dr. Sweeney isn’t to blame. I’m sorry for your loss, Preston. You need to go see to your wife.”
Preston jerked his shoulder out of Kyle’s grasp. “This isn’t over, Tess. Not by a long shot. I’ll be contacting the head of hospital, the chairman of the board, and the president of the Texas Medical Society and filing a complaint about you with each of them. I promise you, I will find a way to ruin your life like you ruined mine tonight.” He stormed away, slamming the surgery waiting room door against the wall.
