Medical romance authors are so grateful for our dedicated readers and we know there are many of you that devour all the books as they come out and often email us to let us know how much you loved a particular book. We love our super readers for your support and joy in what we produce and we think you’re all super stars!
So, we decided it was time that we featured a few of you guys and let you speak about medical romance and what it means to you. Every now and then we’ll be featuring one of our super readers on the blog and letting them take over for a day to spread some fairy dust and tell everyone just how much they adore medicals.
Our first super-reader is Gwessie. Thank you so much Gwessie and take it away….
14 years ago I had a fall quite a nasty one, but my specific doctor failed me. Years later we found the damage to be 3 fractured now crumbling vertabre (literally top middle and bottom in situation )a bulging disc and arthritis at the base. for the last few years after having my son I’ve had bad back pain which is now constant and my options I’ve been told are ‘trying to help pain management’. Also 2 and a half years ago I fell ill with Strep A septacemia. They keep telling me I’m too young for this to have happened to me being just 38, but knowing that its going to get worse and that I’m already at the point where I now have to swallow my pride and use a wheelchair is quite a lot to get your head around.
Even before I had all this I was a reader but read when I could, now I read constantly unless I’m on facebook or twitter interacting with authors I adore and fellow readers. Reading Medical Romance which I am addicted too and subscribe also with Mills and Boon to receive, literally helps keep me sane. At times as you can imagine being in constant pain can bring you down. I am able to completely immerse myself in the beautiful stories ( I hoard them and reread them very often ) from many of the wonderful authors included in this group ( I’ll not start naming favourites, as I think they are all equally amazing they may have the same genre but every story is different and for that I think every one of you have a truly special gift you share with us all and I adore all of you for it).
I have also learned many of which have actually worked or know those who have worked in the medical field totally know their stuff yes. I read their Bios 😉
There are many reasons I love Medical Romance and definitely consider it as a therapy to myself or even meditation. I focus on the story I am reading and it helps me to not dwell on dark thoughts. What helps also is knowing that even though the couple in the story may go through abject hell to get to their happy ending they always do. It has to be the highlight of reading the whole book I cannot read anything without a happy ending, it gives me hope that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how we get there we get to have our happy ever after.
Many of the stories have a lot of humour in them theres nothing more soothing and uplifting than reading a book with humour romance and seeing the Medico’s in the stories get their life’s rewards for giving so much to their patients. For me specifically I adore this genre more than I can say also a kind of homage to those who saved me and still treat me today. The stories written yes at times make us laugh, cry, giggle even at times get a little stressed at wanting to bang their heads together, but knowing they come through it and their journey has a positive outcome is very well worth it. I very much recommend Medical Romance and Love IS the Best Medicine Always
Thank you all truly
