The traditional gift for a 10th Anniversary is Tin/Aluminum, well the traditional gift. I’ll take the more modern one which is diamonds. Diamonds also happen to be my birthstone as well.
Why am I talking about a 10th Anniversary? Because May 1st saw the release of my 10th book with Harlequin Medicals.
It’s also my favourite book that I’ve written to date. Hands down, I can say that without any reservations. Perfect Rivals… was a book which stuck with me for days after I hit send. It completely gutted me.
In a good way.
I thought perhaps it was because I was overly emotional after a surgery last year, but no, that wasn’t the reason. I fell absolutely in love with Dr. Flo Chiu and Dr. Nate King. Their story, their struggles and their romance.
I also did a lot of research on organ transplant, because I had no clue. None. I even bought a Kindle version of a text book called “Transplantation at a Glance” and my agent set me up to speak with a friend of his who was going through the process of getting a kidney transplant.
There were so many things I loved about this book.
It’s just the icing on the cake that this book is also a part of the amazing Hollywood Hills miniseries. And this book was also my first time participating in a multi author continuity. I was actually terrified about being a part of it because I admire so many of the authors involved and because I didn’t want to screw the continuity up!
So I may not be getting diamonds (And by the time this posts I’ll probably be absolutely wrung out as I’m currently at a conference in Ottawa, Ontario), but I did get to write a diamond of a book!
I’m also extremely fortunate to be sitting here 10 books in. I’m so thankful for everyone who has shared this journey with me. Thank you to those who have helped me, cheered me and been there for me. I wouldn’t be here today without all this loving support.
And a big thanks to the Hollywood Hills gals Carol Marinelli, Emily Forbes, Louisa George, Lynne Marshall, Robin Gianna, Amalie Berlin and Tina Beckett for making my first continuity such a wonderful experience!
A match made in Hollywood!
When a movie star is rushed to the Hollywood Hills Clinic, Dr. Flo Chiu immediately clashes with arrogant New York doctor Nate King. But an unexpected kiss creates a media storm, and the two rivals are forced to pretend they’re the perfect couple!
Only, Flo, with a kidney transplant behind her, is determined to live life to the full, while Nate has learned the hard way never to take risks. Now they face the greatest risk of all—falling in love for real!
