Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels

Writing the Category Romance!

I am currently writing my 25th book for Mills and Boon Medicals, which is amazing to me, because I never thought I’d be able to come up with idea for more than three of them!

But it’s amazing how the mind works and how the looming contract deadlines make you come up with something!

But, I’ve been working on something else just lately, which I’m quite proud of and that’s a course I developed with RNA Learning, entitled Writing The Category Romance.

I’m running it twice. The first time in June and again in November.

I’ve always wanted to run a course to help aspiring romance writers and I decided to take the leap after remembering how I felt as an aspiring romance writer. I used to feel so lost. The information I wanted, I couldn’t find. The people I wanted to ask (current writers of category romance) I didn’t actually know. Not in real life. There were one or two that I’d begun to follow online, but I felt hesitant about contacting them out of the blue and asking them a heap of questions!

So, I thought I’d give some writers the opportunity to work with an actual writer of category romance and weekly have a Zoom with them all, so that they can take full advantage and ask me anything they want to know. I’ll also set them a weekly assignment, getting them to focus on character, goals, motivations and conflict (and the difference between internal and external conflict), backstory (and how to use it effectively), frontstory, emotions and sex scenes, settings, theme and how to write a synopsis.

I’m really looking forward to it! I used to teach GCSE English to Post 16+ students and have always enjoyed teaching adults, so I think it’s going to be great.

Places are filling fast, so if it’s the kind of thing you’re interested in, then check it out here.

My next book, due out in July is Their Marriage Worth Fighting For, Book 3 of the Night Shift in Barcelona Quartet!

Will an unexpected chance to work side by side save an estranged couple’s marriage? Find out in Louisa Heaton’s emotional reunion romance, the third book in the Night Shift in Barcelona series!

A chance to mend their marriage……for good?

After experiencing three devastating miscarriages, midwife Grace and neonatal surgeon Diego find their marriage hanging by a thread. But on one summer night at Santa Aelina University Hospital, they are forced to work together on a challenging case. Now, with nowhere to hide, they must finally confront their heartbreak… Can they also rediscover the joy and love that made their marriage so special?
