OS: Welcome to Scotty Cade here to talk about his new book!

SC:

Happy Holidays All!

New year’s Eve is again upon us and Someone to Kiss, oddly enough, covers two consecutive New Year’s Eve’s.

For Dane, New Years Eve has always been a special night and he’s always dreamt of having someone to kiss at midnight. And when he meets Carter, he hoped, finally, all his dreams were about to come true. But unfortunately life gets in the way and he’s gonna have to wait a little longer for that to happen. Without giving away too much of the story, Dane travels a lot for his job and a transfer puts he and Carter’s new relationship in jeopardy. They are at a point where it’s too new to commit, but long enough for Dane to be pretty sure he’s met Mr. Right.

But unfortunately, Carter had a very bad experience with a long distance relationship and promised he would never put himself through that heartache again. And personally I agree. I’ve been in a long distance relationship and well…it was not fun. Especially for a person like me who human interaction and human contact. Trust me…the telephone is not like the real thing, even with FaceTime. ☺ But…with that said, for some people I’m sure it works out well. Especially for those independent people who like a little solitude between their doses of interaction.

Below you can read a little excerpt, but before you do, I’d like to know your opinion on long distance relationships. Have you ever had one? Did it work out? Was it hard or easy for you?
If you do decide to post, you’ll automatically be entered into a drawing for an e-book of “Someone to Kiss.”

Thanks for spending the time with me and I wish you and yours all the goodness the New Year has to offer.

 

 

Blurb:

Dane McCormick’s job negotiating leases and building out furnished office suites takes him all over the country. He stays until the job is done—and then he moves on. As satisfying as the job is, it leaves him no place to call home and no chance to build a personal life. After arriving in Greenville, South Carolina, for a job, a severe stomach virus knocks Dane for a loop. He finds a local urgent care clinic… and a tall, dark, and handsome doctor who goes well above and beyond his duties to treat Dane. The doctor’s bedside manner makes Dane forget all about his stomach flu.

Carter Baldridge has dedicated his life to caring for others. Since graduating from medical school, he has spent all his time and energy building his urgent care business. But the morning he steps into his examining room and sees Dane McCormick on the table, he realizes it might be time to devote some attention to a part of life he has neglected. The spark is there, but so is a major obstacle in the form of Dane’s peripatetic lifestyle and a bad experience in Carter’s past. Both have to decide if the risk is worth the reward.

Excerpt

Dane sat in the waiting room of the local urgent care, or doc-in-a-box as they were often called, and waited for his turn. His hands were shaky, and he was doing his best to keep down the little bit of liquid he’d managed to consume in the last fourteen hours.
The nurse opened a door and stuck her head out. “Dane McCormick?”
Dane stood on shaky legs. “Yes. I’m here.”
“Right this way.” She held the door open for him, led him to the examination room, and closed the door behind them.
She gestured to the examination table. “Please have a seat.”
While they waited, she stuck a thermometer in his ear and then took his pulse. When the thermometer beeped, she read the results and entered them into a computer. She then slipped the blood pressure cuff around his arm and pumped it up. The tight sensation eased as she counted down. Finally, the cuff released and she slid it off.
“How long have you had this fever?” she asked.
“It started last night,” Dane explained. “Followed by nausea, chills, and vomiting. A lot of vomiting.”
“Have you been able to keep anything down at all?”
“Barely a little Sprite.”
“When is the last time you vomited?”
“In your parking lot,” Dane said cringing at the thought of hurling his guts out in front of the world. Probably only one or two passersby, in fact, but it sure felt like the world.
“Oh,” the nurse said tapping the keyboard again and then digging into a drawer and handing Dane a kidney-shaped pink bowl. “Just in case.”
He looked at the bowl oddly. It didn’t look big enough to hold a glass of water, not to mention a grown man’s— He cut off that thought abruptly.
“I know, right?” the nurse said with a knowing glance. “But it’s what they give us.”
Then she handed him something in a plastic wrapper. “Please remove your shirt and put this on. The doctor will be with you shortly.”
“Thank you,” Dane said as she left the room.
Dane unbuttoned and slipped off his shirt and replaced it with the blue paper gown. “At least it’s blue and not pink,” he said out loud as he shivered and tried to mentally settle his stomach.
Five minutes passed, and Dane was feeling worse each minute. He didn’t know how much longer he could hold out, but he certainly didn’t want to hurl in front of the doctor. He considered leaving the room and finding the nearest bathroom, but then he might miss the doctor and have to wait longer, so he stayed put, closed his eyes, and tried to think of anything other than hurling.
At the sound of the door, Dane opened his eyes and stared at the man who entered the room. For a moment, he forgot about being sick. Jesus! He’s gorgeous. The guy was near six feet in height—a couple of inches shorter than Dane’s own six-foot-two-inch frame. He had jet-black hair with one streak of silver over his right eyebrow and the brightest and kindest sapphire-blue eyes Dane had ever seen. The doctor smiled warmly, and Dane’s stomach did backflips again. This time he wasn’t sure if it was his illness or the handsome doc making his stomach flutter.Cover:

  1. Congrats on the book. I was in a long distance relationship for 5 years. it worked well but finally got to the point that we both needed someone closer.

  2. Congrats on your new book! I had a long distance relationship for several years, it was hard at times, but we ended up married. I think it helped that we had dated for 5 years before we were separated by most of the country.
