Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels

Welcome Author Ann McIntosh

by Susan Carlisle

I have the honor of introducing Ann McIntosh. She is our latest Medical author. I asked her to share a little about herself. Please welcome her with a hardy hello!

I discovered Medical Romance when:

I didn’t discover Medical romances so much as always knew they existed, since my mother was an avid Mills & Boon reader from before I was born. As I got older, and started getting interested in her collection, I often found myself reading books with medical settings. Betty Neels was a huge favorite of my Mum’s. 

I wrote my first story when: 

I *started* my first story when I was about seven years old. I had watched an old, black-and-white movie about a Privateer and a noblewoman, set in the Caribbean, and was completely horrified and disappointed when, in the end, the hero sailed off, leaving the heroine behind. As far as I was concerned, there should have been a happy ending, and I set out to rewrite the storyline to achieve that. I never finished it, but I think back on that story as sowing the seeds of my future romance writing career. 

Where do you live? 

I live in Melbourne, Florida (not to be confused with the one Down Under.) It’s on Florida’s Space Coast, but I find the easiest way to describe it is, about an hour and a half south-east from Disney World. 

My best trait is: 

Hmmm…that’s a hard question. I’d say perhaps my interest in and empathy with people, which often leads me to be able to see multiple sides of most arguments. 

My worst trait is: 

Gosh, maybe the fact that, as I’ve aged, my nonsense meter has gotten smaller, so my tolerance for drama is pretty low. However, my husband would probably say my worst trait is how completely focused I get when I’m writing, which means he sometimes realizes he’s been talking to himself for five minutes LOL! 

Five things on your bucket list:

  • Lots of travel
  • Getting fit (but I’m laughing as I write this, as not only am I sloth-like but I also LOVE food and drinking beer!)
  • Upping my writing game, so I’m making a living from it
  • Getting a degree, as I didn’t have the opportunity when I was younger and I love learning!
  • Taking a pottery course. I do a lot of crafting and this is the one area I’ve always wanted to explore.

 

Ann’s book is out on September 1. Be sure and give her a read.

TNPM3,2

She’s expecting a baby…but not to meet her Mr. Right!

After leaving her cheating ex, nurse Nychelle Cory decided to have the baby she’s always wanted through IVF. As she’s determined to raise her child alone, she must ignore her inconvenient attraction to gorgeous colleague Dr. David Warmington. Especially as David has his own reasons for not wanting a family. But could Nychelle’s long-awaited miracle help heal them both?

  2. Welcome Ann! (runs to hug my Debut sister) I love the Melbourne, FL area. Went on vacation there years ago and vowed that if I ever moved to FL, that’s the area I’d choose. So pretty! I’m reading The Nurse’s Pregnancy Miracle right now and LOVE it! ❤
