Welcoming Emma Marnell, from the Medical Romance Editorial Team

Emma photoHello everyone!

I’m Emma, the new Editorial Assistant for the Harlequin Medical Romance team.

As I have just started with the team, I thought I would share some fun facts about myself with you. I have been living in the UK for over two years now, however, I am originally from Galway, Ireland – a beautiful part of the world where I encourage you all to visit, at least once! I have also lived in New York prior to my move to the UK.

Since moving to the UK, I have completed an MA in Publishing Media from Oxford Brookes University. During my time there, I met some wonderful authors and lecturers and gained an enormous amount of knowledge about the book industry and of what it takes to take a book from an idea into the hands of a reader.

I am a huge Grey’s Anatomy fan, and this naturally translates into the books I choose to read. Over this past year, especially, I have found myself turning to books to escape the world we are currently living in. Just some of the ones I’ve enjoyed include, getting caught up in the drama of the ER at Seattle General Hospital, in Falling for the Secret Prince by Alison Roberts or getting whisked away to the Isle of Bourtree, off the coast of Scotland, in Annie O’Neil’s latest novel, Christmas Under the Northern Lights. I feel we all need a little bit of magic in our lives, particularly this year, and what better way to experience that magic than diving into a new Harlequin Medical Romance.

We have an exciting line up of books to continue with that magic in 2021, so keep your eyes peeled! I would love to hear about some of your favourite books/places to escape to, leave me a comment below.

What to Watch – and Read! – Next: Hospital Playlist

Hello! It’s Hannah, here. I’m the Assistant Editor, for the Harlequin Medical Romance team. It’s great to be back, on Love is the Best Medicine. I can’t wait, today, to wax lyrical about my favourite topic: K-Dramas (a.k.a. Korean dramas)! Or, more specifically, the Medical K-Drama you have to add to your to-watch list…

What’s the Medical K-Drama I have to watch, I hear you ask? Drum roll, please! It’s time to talk all things Hospital Playlist!

OK, time for a quick plot run-down! Hospital Playlist tells the story of doctors and nurses working at Yulje Medical Center. It focuses on five doctors who have been friends since they entered medical school in 1999.

Jam-packed with high-stakes drama, tear-jerking emotion and stay-with-you relationships, Hospital Playlist has it all. What’s more? It’s filled with every trope that a Harlequin Medical Romance fan could wish for!

Trope #1? Meet single dad Ik-joon! Lead character, Ik-joon’s relationship with his son, Woo-joo melts my heart… We have, at Harlequin Medical Romance, a single dad of our own, to melt your heart: Carter, the hero of The Single Dad’s Holiday Wish by Susan Carlisle.

medicalnov1

Trope #2? This is a spoiler-free zone. So, I hope I’m not giving anything away, by saying that Ik-Joon and Song-hwa’s slooow-burn, will-they won’t-they romance had me on tenterhooks! If you’re looking for a second chance romance, just like Ik-Joon and Song-hwa’s, then It Started with a Winter Kiss by Tina Beckett and A Reunion, a Wedding, a Family by Amy Ruttan are for you!

medicalnov4    medicalnov6

Trope #3? My favourite part about Medical Dramas, full stop, is watching a team work – and bond –together. I just loved watching the doctors and nurses, at Yulje Medical Center, interact and grow closer! If you’re fascinated, by the way a hospital team works, then the Royal Christmas at Seattle General miniseries will be a treat. Featuring Falling for the Secret Prince by Alison Roberts, Neurosurgeon’s Christmas to Remember by Traci Douglass, The Bodyguard’s Christmas Proposal by Charlotte Hawkes and The Princess’s Christmas Baby, Royal Christmas at Seattle General is the perfect festive read!

y404  y404-1  y404-2  y404-3

With word that Season 2 of Hospital Playlist will begin filming, this year, it’s the perfect time to fall in love with Season 1. If you do watch, or read any of my recommendations, I’d love to hear what you think!

In the meantime… Happy watching and reading!

With love,

Hannah
