Lili Porter hates the rain. Bad things happen in the rain. As a small
town social worker dedicated to protecting children, she is forced
to start over to escape her rural disaster. Determined to follow
her father’s advice—head up and chin high—Lili finds herself in a
new city, taking on a new system, this time healthcare. In doing
so, she gets something she never expected, an intimate behind-
the-scenes look at life in the hospital.
Lili learns that a surgeon’s hands have the power to heal more
than physical wounds. And a prescription for truth can cure three
years of sleep running and leave you beautifully awake.
I washed up and had just enough time to tug on a clean tank
and thong and then climbed back into bed. I heard his footsteps.
Excitement and relief washed through me. A small part of me
feared he might have changed his mind, but my insecurity
vanished the second his chiseled face appeared from the
His shirt hung open. He folded his arms across his chest and
casually leaned against the wall, studying me like the MRI images
he methodically memorized before each surgery.
“You moved?” His lips parted into a half grin, and he shook his
“You took too long.”
“You put clothes on.”
“You might need some new clothes.” I smiled.
“You’re fucking beautiful.”

About the Authors
Yep. That's an “s.” There are two of us!
We’re East coast girls separated by Long Island Sound who met
in Physician Assistant School and have been besties ever since.
We can safely say that thirteen miles of water does not get in the
way because we talk or text, no exaggeration, at least 150 times a
day. No, really, we do—about everything and nothing. Shockingly,
we never (we mean never) run out of things to say. Umm, ever.
We definitely laugh A LOT and we’re a tad sarcastic. And if we’re
being totally honest, one or two people might have, on occasion,
used our names and ‘dramatic’ in the same sentence. But it’s hard
to trust the sources since they married us.
It only took twelve years, two husbands, five kids, two dogs, and a
two-week vacation in Cape Cod later to decide the romance world
needed a splash of medicine. Write what you know.
So you can easily find us at 4 o'clock on Bank Street beach with a
glass of cold Prosecco brainstorming. And guaranteed if we bump
into you, literally, it’s only because our iPhones are glued to our
hands (totally out of our control) either writing or editing our next
novel (and yes, it is possible to do from your iPhone, we mastered
it … damn those straight quotations).
When we are not working on our book or reading the latest
angsty romance on our kindles, you basically name it and we have
it going on. Soccer, lacrosse, golf, swimming, dance, gymnastics,
football, chess, baseball, basketball, skiing, ice skating, school,
homework, and more school.
Oh yeah, did we forget to mention our careers in medicine?
Needless to say, we realized fast that something had to go, so we
opted for sleep. It’s completely overrated (yet so AMAZING) and
delirium makes everything funnier. Good thing we share a brain
and can pretty much complete each other’s sentences (definitely
weird, we know), otherwise it might have taken us two years to
write Beautifully Awake rather than one.
So that’s our story, who we are … just add AUTHORS to the list!
