Cover Reveal - - Beyond Just Us

PJ, here. I am so excited for the upcoming (May 19) release of the final book in Kimberly Kincaid's Remington Medical contemporary romance series. I'm loving the sexy, sassy, and deeply emotional stories in this series and have been looking forward to Tess's book from the beginning. And how fitting that this series centers around health care professionals. These people are my heroes!

Remington’s most cynical doctor is about to get upended by two little words:
I do.

Tess Michaleson runs her ER like she runs her life—
no pretenses, no exceptions.
As a single mother, she can’t afford anything less.
As a woman who’s been burned by love?
She can’t believe in anything more.  
Her son and her job are the center of her world.
That’s all Tess needs.

Until Declan Riley falls into her arms…

His tattoos and his Irish accent are enough to melt her panties
His diagnosis? That’s enough to break her heart.
But Tess can help him get the care he needs…

All she has to do is marry him.

Declan knows he should keep Tess at arm’s length.

What they have is temporary. Necessary.

And he knows from experience just
how dangerous getting close can be.

But the longer he’s around the smart, sexy doctor and her son,
the more Declan realizes
close isn’t enough.

He wants Tess. He wants it all.

Even if he has to do the one thing he swore he never would to have her.



 “Ah, I do love wedding duty,” the judge said, not batting so much as a single lash at the fact that both Tess and Declan were clad in jeans and T-shirts or that one of their “witnesses” was still in diapers. “I’m Judge Esposito, and I’ll be presiding today. Shall we get started?”

“Yes, please,” Tess said. They went through a couple of legalities to establish that she and Declan were both who they claimed to be and that they had witnesses who were who they claimed to be.

Then Judge Esposito threw out a whammy. “Tess. Declan. You may join hands as you recite your vows.”

Oh, hell. She had just watched Charlie and Parker get (re) married. How had she forgotten this part?

Thankfully, Declan covered her hesitation by smoothly scooping up both of her hands. His fingers closed around hers with the perfect amount of pressure to let her know he was there, steady, but not so much that he overpowered her. It put her oddly at ease, and before Tess knew it, Judge Esposito was on to the ceremony. The words were boilerplate, and Tess had, of course, heard them before at her own failed wedding, not to mention a dozen more for family and friends. They got through the intention part easily enough, needing only to say “I do” when called upon. Tess even managed to repeat the judge’s words about richer or poorer and sickness and health, then slide the ring Connor had given her onto Declan’s finger, without much fanfare from her heart. She was a doctor. Sickness and health were the whole point.

But then it was Declan’s turn, and her heart delivered a completely unexpected bitch-slap before galloping through her chest.

“I, Declan, take you, Tess, to be my wife. To have and to hold”—he slid his right hand from her left to cup her chin in illustration, and making Charlie and Harlow and Tess’s traitorous lady bits sigh in unison. This is an act to make things look genuine. The words don’t really apply to you, she reminded herself sternly, meeting his gaze head-on as he continued with the script—“in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer”—Declan’s thumb swept over her cheek. God, he was really selling it—“and I promise my love to you. With this ring, I thee wed.”

He slipped the ring he’d chosen onto her finger, gathering her hands in his again as Judge Esposito took the lead.

“Love is the reason you’re here today, and it should be the core of your marriage.”

Tess’s pulse sped up. Speaking of words that didn’t apply. Still, this had to look legit, so she kept her expression steady, and—whew—Declan did the same.

“But it also will take trust,” Judge Esposito continued. “To know in your hearts you want the best for each other. It will take dedication, to stay open to one another; to learn and to grow together even when it’s not always so easy to do.”

The thump of her heartbeat pressed faster against her ears. “It will take faith, to be willing to go forward to tomorrow, never really knowing what tomorrow will bring. In addition, it will take commitment, to hold true to the journey you both now pledge to share together. Tess and Declan.” The judge smiled so warmly that for a tiny, split second, Tess felt a ribbon of warmth uncurl in her chest, too.

“In so much as the two of you have agreed to live together in matrimony, have promised your love for each other by these vows, I now declare you to be husband and wife.” Judge Esposito’s smile grew even bigger as he added,

“You may now kiss the bride.”

  2. I work for the city of Cedar Rapids and yesterday was my first day off. My time has just started my time off. I'll read and watch some television or movies. Going to be mostly reading to catch up. Love Kimberly Kincaid. Have some of this. series on my TBR but have not read. Gonna have to read. Looks amazing.
    Have a few family members that work on health care but work for Speciality Doctors so dont deal to much with sick people mostly foot and ankle clinic. And OBGYN

  3. Pretty much any reading is great for an escape and mood lifter for me these days. (Of course no dystopian books right now) We cannot do enough to thank our medical professionals especially now! My mother was a nurse and I have several close friends in the medical field.

  4. I haven't read them all but enjoyed the ones I have. Frankly, I read a bit of everything but to take my mind off recent difficulties, I have needed something completely different from reality so have been reading Milla Vane's A Heart of Blood and Ashes.

  5. I am not familiar with the Remington Medical series. I have read a few medical romances and enjoyed the. This one intrigues me. You gave a good hook, just enough information and enough left out to make it something I really want to read.
    No one in our family is in the medical profession. I did learn the other day that our new daughter-in-law is some sort of nurse, but I have not really had much of an opportunity to get to know her. With the current situation, we may not see her for quite a while.
    For someone who has not accomplished much of anything in the two weeks we have been in self-isolation, I have done very little reading. I picked up a very thin Harlequin the other day that was written in 1972. It too me days to finish it. Oh, my, have things changed in the intervening years. The book would never get published today. So many issues. I have several current books lined up to read. I just need to decide whether I want historical, contemporary, suspense, oparanormal, or something light. If I start one, I can guarantee I will get nothing done around the house.
    Stay safe and healthy.

  6. My DIL is a NICU nurse at a major metropolitan hospital


  7. This is a new to me author as well as a new to me series. You have made me feel a number of emotions in the author's description of the wedding ceremony. It is evident she is quite good at what she does.

    I do not have any medical professionals in my family. But, I loved the idea that in England their medical pros were applauded the other day. That is what so many people who are giving of their skills right now deserve.

    I am having a difficult time finding any books which do it for me right now.

    Thank you for this introduction and the excerpt. May everyone stay safe.

  8. I love Kimberly's books but have not started this series yet. I am a Home Health Nurse and my sister is a Medical Technologist. I am trying to read rom coms now.

  9. No I have not read any of her books yet. I am reading Roxanne St. Claire's Dog Father series right now. My cousin is a nurse and yesterday she had the first day off in over a week. Be safe out there everyone.

  10. I love this series, and am so looking forward to Tess and Declan's book! I'm currently reading a ton of stuff off my TBR, although I'm also rereading favorites by Erin Nicholas and Julie James, which really comfort me! No need to include me!
