Stephanie Hays, RN, has been infatuated with the handsome, well-respected Dr. Peter Granville since her days in nursing school. And now she has the good fortune of working alongside the “Great Granville” in his hospital unit. There, she spends her days longing for precious scraps of his attention, even if they’re won only by her legendary clumsiness.
Dr. Luke Carter is Granville’s senior resident—and a man who attracts women like ants to a picnic. But the only woman he wants is Stephanie, and she’s blinded by her attraction to Granville. She fails to see him through Luke’s eyes: as a cold, egocentric bully who’ll do anything to get to the top.
Determined to make Stephanie realize the unsettling truth about her idol, Luke conceives a plot to reveal Granville for who he really is. Is this the ticket to winning Stephanie’s heart at last…or will it drive her straight into Granville’s arms?
About the author
A resident of Alberta, Canada, Sheryl Leonard is a registered nurse who always aspired to be a published writer. The Real McCoy, her second book, is based on a short piece she wrote years ago and was inspired by the stories, patients, and hospital settings she has encountered during her career. Leonard’s first romance novel, Out of the Shadows, was published in 2010. Still active in the nursing field, Leonard is also an avid gardener. When the long, frigid Alberta winters hit and gardening takes a backseat, she spends her time knitting, baking, and huddling indoors with a cup of tea and a good book.
