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.

Our 1,000th Blog Post!

It doesn’t seem ten minutes, since we were talking about names and sorting through images for our blog.  After weeks of preparation, Love is the Best Medicine went live in February 2012. 

Since then we’ve posted 999 blogs (this is the magic 1,000th) and written over half a million words (577,805, if anyone’s counting).  And we’ve posted so many photos that we almost broke the site at one point! 

We can’t thank you enough for being with us on this journey, we’ve had thousands of comments and countless views, and each one of them is important to us.  Those views have come from 170 different countries, and so what better way to celebrate our 1,000th post than to ask our authors to send a postcard from places they’ve visited in their books.

Excerpts, Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels

The Amazing Adventures of Two Annies, A Dog and a Tennis Ball

I guess we’re all getting used to video conferencing these days.  How not enough light can make you look as if you’re speaking from a dungeon, and too much light can turn you into a shadow puppet.  The very lovely Annie O’Neil and I put all of our skills to good use the other day when we were asked to do a Facebook Live chat with Vic Britton, the Commissioning Editor for Mills and Boon.  Did we have an amazing time?  Yes, we did! 

We had a few hiccups, of course, because that’s what live chats are for 🙂  Those of you who wear varifocal glasses will recognise my rather faraway look in the first few frames, which comes from trying to find the right part of the lens to read something on my screen.  Annie had a special guest with her – Skye the border collie – who almost caused a disaster by sitting on her computer cable.  When my connection dropped suddenly, Vic and Annie valiantly kept going until the internet fairies flew to my rescue.  Oh, and if you want to know about the tennis ball, you’ll have to watch the video… 

 

A huge thank you to the ladies at Mills and Boon, who invited us and made this possible, and to Vic who was our wonderful host.  And, of course, wild appreciation for Annie O’Neil who is always a star in any given situation.

To round off Annie’s and my trip to Dolphin Cove, I’ll end with a short excerpt.  Drew has been recovering from injuries sustained in a car accident, but is keen to get back to work.  He’s taken his new puppy Phoenix to scout out the Veterinary Centre, early one morning, before anyone’s due to arrive for work…

***

The deserted reception area smelled of wax polish and hope. The consulting rooms were still the same, one of them filled with a mass of photographs of Ellie’s canine patients, and another with a more restrained set of framed photographs that belonged to Lucas. Drew’s was…empty. Neat and tidy, without a speck of dust. Drew smiled. It was ready and waiting for him.

‘Drew! What the blazes are you doing here?’

Ellie’s tone generally became firmer, in proportion to the size and momentum of the animal she was dealing with. This must be the one she reserved for charging rhinos.

Drew did the only thing possible and let go of Phoenix’s lead. When he turned, he saw the puppy barrelling along the corridor, the lead trailing behind her, and Ellie fell to her knees, scooping Phoenix up into her arms. Worked every time.

Or… Every time apart from this one.

‘Come on. What are you doing here?’ Ellie stood to face him, trying not to smile as the puppy licked her neck.

‘I could ask you the same question. Shouldn’t you and Lucas be staring into each other’s eyes over your cornflakes? You are technically still on your honeymoon, even if you are at work.

Ellie flushed slightly, presumably at the mention of Lucas’s eyes. ‘You do know what you’re doing, don’t you? Deflecting one question with another. It so happens that I didn’t have cornflakes for breakfast, and Lucas isn’t here. He’s doing the school run this morning.’

‘So you’re letting him in gently to the joys of parenthood.’ Drew grinned. He imagined that the other parents at the school gate were more of a challenge to Lucas than the whole six years he’d spent as TV’s favourite vet.

‘He said that yesterday was a bit like running a gauntlet of meerkats.’ Ellie shrugged. ‘He doesn’t mind, really.’

‘He loves it. You know that.’

Ellie nodded, smiling. She’d been in love with Lucas ever since the three of them had studied together at veterinary school. Lucas had left to become a celebrity vet, and Ellie had returned to Cornwall, where she and Drew had set up in practice together in Dolphin Cove. When Ellie and Lucas’s son, Mav, had been born, he had been so like his father, and a constant reminder that something was missing in all their lives.

But now Lucas was back. Ellie had never loved anyone else, and Drew was happy for them both.

‘You still haven’t answered my question.’

He hadn’t counted on springing this on Ellie today, but since she’d asked, he may as well grasp the nettle. ‘Why don’t we go and sit down in my office.’

‘I’m really getting worried now. You’re trying to butter me up by sitting down, aren’t you?’

Drew chuckled. ‘Yep. And I don’t want Phoenix running around here until she’s had her second set of vaccinations.’

He let Ellie tuck his hand into the crook of her elbow, but Drew was careful not to lean on her as they walked. He’d leaned on Ellie far too much already and he appreciated her support, but it had to stop. Leaning on the people around him was beginning to weaken him.

Ellie plumped herself down into a chair, keeping Phoenix on her lap for more cuddles, and Lucas lowered himself into the seat behind his desk. The surface looked as if it had been polished every day while he’d been away.

‘I’m coming back to work, Ellie.’

Ellie’s eyebrows shot up, but she took a moment to moderate her reaction. ‘We weren’t expecting you till the end of the month. Are you sure you’re well enough? What does your physiotherapist say?’

‘She says that if I think I can manage it I should give it a try, just for a couple of days a week for starters. She told me to take things slowly and stop if anything gets too much.’

Relief showed in Ellie’s eyes. ‘That…doesn’t sound so bad.’

‘You know I’ve been going crazy at home, Ells. I really need this and I’m going to need your support. I know you and Lucas can do with a helping hand here.’

‘Yes, we could.’ Ellie’s gaze softened suddenly. ‘Lucas isn’t replacing you, Drew. You know that’s never going to happen.’

It might. The complex animal surgery Drew excelled at took stamina and strength, and no amount of concentrating on the positive could tell him for sure that he’d ever be able to do that again. But he still had a lot to give, and if anyone was going to replace him, he wanted it to be Lucas. And if anyone was going to replace cool Uncle Drew in Mav’s affections, he wanted that to be Lucas too.

But the late-night fears about being of no more use to anyone were just paranoia. They weren’t what Ellie needed to hear from him at the moment.

‘You’re not the only one who’s pleased to see Lucas back, you know. We were all friends, and I’ve missed him too.’

‘You never said…’

Drew rolled his eyes. ‘Of course I didn’t, not while you were missing him on a completely different level. And being remarkably tight-lipped about it.’

Ellie heaved a sigh. ‘Okay. You have my support, just as long as you don’t overdo things. If you do, I won’t hesitate to escort you off the premises.’

‘It’s a deal.’

‘I suppose…the accounts need signing off.’ Ellie shot him a mischievous look. No doubt it had crossed her mind that checking them through involved sitting down.

‘I can do that.’ Drew called her bluff. ‘Although I haven’t forgotten that it’s your turn this year. Or maybe we should give them to Lucas, since he’s our newest partner in the practice.’

Ellie didn’t take the bait. ‘We’ll both owe you one, then. Mrs Cartwright’s coming in this morning, with Tabatha…’

‘Okay. You take Tabatha, and I’ll take Mrs Cartwright.’ It was well known that whenever Mrs Cartwright made an appointment for someone to look at her cat, she really wanted to sit in the waiting room and chat for an hour. The vets at the Dolphin Cove Clinic always made sure that she got a cup of tea and that someone was available to listen to her.

‘You’re a darling.’ Ellie frowned. ‘I suppose you’re not allowed to drink welcome-back champagne…?’

‘At eight in the morning, and with painkillers, probably not. We’ll do that another time.’

‘Welcome-back coffee, then? Your mug’s in your top drawer….’ Ellie gave Phoenix one last hug and got to her feet.

‘You go and get on. I’ll make the coffee.’ Drew opened the drawer of his desk, finding pens and his coffee mug stacked neatly inside. He was going to have to do something about all this tidiness.

‘All right.’ Ellie planted her hands on his desk, leaning over to kiss his cheek. ‘I’m so glad you’re back, Drew.’

‘Don’t get sloppy on me Ells…’ Drew could feel a lump forming in his throat.

‘Tough guy, eh?’ Ellie shot him a speculative look.

‘Not really. I just don’t want you to get me started.’

‘That might not be such a bad idea, Drew. You’ve always been there for me, and now Lucas and I both want to be there for you.’

‘You are. And I appreciate it.’ He just didn’t want to talk about it. ‘White no sugar?’

Ellie rolled her eyes. ‘That’s right. Glad to see you haven’t forgotten.’

When Ellie left, he took a moment to soak in the feeling. He was here, sitting behind his desk, and already had a few things to do with his day. Looking at the accounts, making the coffee and chatting to Mrs Cartwright might not be quite at the cutting edge of veterinary practice, but it was a start.

Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels

Guest bloggers, Ellie Stone and Drew Trevelyan

We’d like to introduce you to the Vets of Dolphin Cove, Ellie Stone and Drew Trevelyan.  Their stories feature in a new duo, Ellie is the heroine of ‘The Vet’s Secret Son’, by Annie O’Neil and Drew is the hero of ‘Healing the Vet’s Heart’, by Annie Claydon.  But since Ellie and Drew have been friends since childhood, we thought we’d let them introduce each other to you.

Drew Trevelyan

Let me introduce you to Ellie Stone.  Also known as Ells to her friends, Mum to her son Mav, and…  on second thoughts I won’t mention the nickname I gave her when we were both kids.  Ellie’s got a very vivid imagination when it comes to pay-back.

Ellie’s an all-round great person, and I’m proud to call her my best friend.  We’ve known each other since before we could walk and some of my first memories are of playing on the beach at Dolphin Cove with Ellie.  Our first taste of beer was sneaked out of the pump at her Dad’s pub, The Hungry Pelican, and our first teenage attempt at changing the world was to persuade my Mum to drive us into town so we could attend a rally to protect Cornwall’s sea-life. We shared a love of animals and going to the same Veterinary School in London, was an obvious first step on the ladder of our careers.  

During our university years, I fell in and out of love on a pretty regular basis, but Ellie found her one true love.  She and Lucas were made for each other, and when he left her the circumstances were enough to make anyone crumble.  Not Ellie, though, she’s made of sterner stuff.  She picked herself up and announced that she and I were going to make our childhood dream a reality.  Establishing a veterinary practice in Cornwall, in our home village of Dolphin Cove.

We worked hard and made a success of the practice, and now we have a brand new building, along with an Innovation Centre and a wildlife sanctuary.  We’ve had our ups and downs, raising a child on her own has been tough for Ellie, but she’s done a great job with Mav.  And she’s always been there for me, too.  I couldn’t have made it through the last two years without her.

And… the question that everyone always asks.  Ellie’s gorgeous, we get each other’s jokes, and her son calls me his cool Uncle Drew.  We’ve stuck together through thick and thin, and we love each other.  Hasn’t there ever been just a hint of romance?

I’m almost embarrassed to say it, but… No.

The truth, although Ellie would never admit it to you, is that she’s still in love with Lucas.  I’ve had my share of love and loss too, but I’ve never seen Ellie in that way.  She’s my best friend, and like a sister to me. 

Apart from that one time…  But a gentleman doesn’t tell.  If you want to know about that, you’ll have to ask Ellie.

Ellie Stone

Drew Treveleyn? *shakes head* Where do I begin? The day I was born? The day after? We’ve pretty much been friends since then. Or near enough. Our parents used to park our pushchairs next to one another on the quay out front of my parent’s pub at Dolphin Cove and I would say our mutual love of animals started then, too. That’s what happens when you’re battling seagulls and passing dogs and cats for your summer ice creams.

I could tell you more than a few stories about him, but we’d probably better focus on the ones that don’t embarrass him too much. Like the time he triaged a seagull’s leg with a pair of ice lolly sticks. Or the time he carried a dog who’d been hit by a car three miles to the next village (there wasn’t a veterinarian’s at Dolphin Cove then) even though it weighed practically as much as he did (he was a string bean for quite a while before he developed into the strong, sea-loving, muscular veterinarian you see before you today). And that was because my parents were working and his were fighting (pretty normal back in the day before they got a divorce which I would say was a good thing, but as their kid, it obviously wasn’t very nice which was why we hung out at ours more often than his, but really we were usually wandering all around the countryside trying to find animals to fix). 

Did we ever fancy each other? (falls about laughing)

No. 

Erm.  Maybe once we thought we did. For about three seconds. We were teenagers and thought we knew absolutely everything there was to know about everything, but obviously we were hormone-addled idiots who knew absolutely nothing about anything other than the fact that we were best friends. It was summer, the beach was perfectly lit by moonlight and we were buzzing from the excitement of both of us getting into the Royal Veterinary College in London and, possibly, a pint or two from my parent’s pub…and we never, ever discussed it again because then I met Lucas. 

And enough said about that. 

Drew’s romantic life hasn’t been that much better than my own, to be fair. He had a proper rough run when his fiancée…well…he’d better tell you about that because he went through the wringer bigtime and suffice it to say, it’s been an uphill battle for someone who seriously does not deserve it. 

Anyway, I’m risking getting waaaay too sentimental here and that is not how we roll. Long story short, a girl couldn’t ask for a better best friend than Drew. He plays boardgames, can swim like a dolphin, knows exactly what type of ice cream to bring over after we’ve had a tough day at the clinic and is the absolute best cool Uncle to my boy, Maverick, ever.

Ellie and Drew’s books will be published in September. Any questions for them?

Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels

A Mills and Boon puppy isn’t just for Christmas…

…it’s for all year round! Because here at True Love Towers we’ve been working on our Christmas titles since the Summer. But it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in the heights of romantic real estate. And, though we may not quite have the decorations up, there’s no pink Christmas trees topped with our very own hot heroes (yet!), with the office secret Santa organised and the Christmas lunch all booked, we thought it would be a great time to delve into our 2019 festive offerings. And let’s just say, this year we’re obsessed with our furry, four-legged friends!

Across November and December, we’re treating you to some wonderfully festive Medical Romances with the added bonus of adorable dogs and puppies to steal your hearts and fill you with warm, fluffy feelings too! While, of course, it’s still all about our fabulous medical heroes and heroines finding love at Christmas, this year we also get to see the lovable companions who help bring them together (or cheekily get under their feet ;)). But which ones will be on your Christmas list this year…

 

In November and December:

Puppy Name: Dougal
Where you can find him:
Pups that Make Miracles, including books by Susan Carlisle, Annie Claydon, Annie O’Neil and Karin Baine
Pawrents: Too many to name!

Say hello to Dougal! You get to see this fabulously mischievous pup in not one but four stories this Christmas. As a recurring character of the Pups that Make Miracles series this young canine is in the business of causing chaos and igniting romance magic (repeatedly!) as he helps the medical professionals of Heatherglen Castle Clinic find their happy-ever-afters!

In December:

Puppy name: Pirate
Where you can find him:
Single Dad in Her Stocking by Alison Roberts
Adoptive pawrents:
Max Cunningham and Emma Moretti

Named for the jet-black spot covering his eye and ear, Pirate is wily by name and wily by nature. He’s taken an instant like to doctor Emma and is determined to keep hot-shot consultant Max on his toes. And he won’t rest until his pawrents have found an everlasting bond this holiday season…

Puppy name: Boy
Where you can find him:
A Puppy and a Christmas Proposal by Louisa George
Pawrents:
Alex Norton and Beth Masters

You can’t not instantly fall in love with adorable little lost puppy Boy. And he won’t be lost for long! He’s about to find his forever home with gorgeous doc Alex and fabulous vet Beth – first he just has to convince them that a future together is worth fighting to overcome their shared past for.

 

Add to this all the wonderful, therapeutic joy and healing the many doggy characters we meet in the other stories across November and December bring and this Christmas is set to be a truly Puptastic wonderland!

And we’d love to hear from you! Who are the four-legged friends that you’ll be snuggling up with by the fire this Christmas?

Merry Christmas!
