Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels

Falling in Love… with Slovenia

Can you believe May is almost over? And I don’t just mean Theresa (poor thing, could anyone do that job though, really?) It was a month packed with travels, but the place I’ve been most excited to tell people about is Slovenia. I think I might base a book in Slovenia next. Here’s why.

FOOD & WINE TO DIE FOR

Slovenia has no less than 24 gastronomic areas, and three wine-growing areas. And Ljubljana (the colorful capital) has some of the best food I’ve ever eaten! If you’re headed over, check out the tour by Ljubljana Yum. We munched, chewed, sipped, slurped and giggled our way through 3.5 hours of unbelievably good cuisine and wine with our local guide. We got the lowdown on the city’s history too, so our PacMan style guzzling route doubled as an historic tour. Bonus!

In a romance novel… a bold British wine-merchant gets a tip about the perfect Slovenian blend. But to swill, pour or sell it (and reap the rewards) he must first get past Katja Kovač, heiress to the country’s biggest wine estate. Too bad her daughter is as headstrong as her.

YOU CAN’T BEAT LAKE BLED

Fog clings to mountain peaks, and silver clouds cast reflections in the eye-poppingly pretty Lake Bled. Just an hour and a half from Ljubljana by car, Lake Bled is Slovenia’s most popular tourist haunts, but don’t let that put you off. It was definitely one of my favorite stops. We took a boat to the tiny church in the middle of the lake’s island, where the bell is said to grant wishes!

In a romance novel… Destined for an arranged marriage to a man she doesn’t love, tourist/successful lawyer Melissa (?) makes a wish in a tiny island church. But what happens when the bell brings three very different men, each with the potential to be perfect?

WEIRD STREET ART

Metelkova is the coolest part of town… if you enjoy the feeling of being judged by an army of skin-less bone gremlins, or an oversized spider. This autonomous social and cultural centre in the city centre of Ljubljana is basically a bunch of squats/art spaces covered in graffiti, and it makes for some seriously fun selfie-taking.

In a romance novel…an anonymous, impoverished artist works his talents to the max, creating heartfelt sculptures by night. Who is he? Why does he paint tears on all his women? One snooping reporter vows to locate and reveal him… but what happens when they fall in love?

I love when my travels get the creative juices flowing. Where have YOU been lately, that you’re set on writing more about?

Spread the love, everyone. And happy travels! x

Welcome New Medical Romance Author, Becky Wicks! (And Announcing a Giveaway)

We’re thrilled to welcome new Medical Romance Author, Becky Wicks!  Becky is an author and freelance copywriter, who had various travel and romance novels published before joining her fellow romantics on the Mills and Boon team.  Her first Harlequin romance ‘Tempted by her Hot-Shot Doc‘ is out in February!

We’d also like to announce our Valentine’s Giveaway.  You can find the entry page here, and there will be a link in the sidebar until the 13th February.  But first, over to Becky…

Becky WicksI discovered Medical Romance when:

This was waaaaay back… but maybe after I discovered Mills & Boon in general. I used to read my gran’s as a kid and I have memories of her wielding a can of whipped cream and threatening to spray my books if I didn’t stop reading! Medical Romance came later, perhaps after gaining an indelible appreciation for George Clooney in ER. He changed a lot of lives, that man. And not just on-screen.

I wrote my first story when:

First ever story? Hmmm, that was probably at age 7 or 8. I used to fill huge notepads with stories written in pencil, usually by torchlight in my bed at night. Lots featured talking animals… I even wrote about an orphaned tadpole once (don’t ask). I think I always had a weird imagination; Roald Dahl and Enid Blyton were my inspiration! The romance writing really started later. I did a lot of travel writing first, worked my way around the world as a freelancer before getting signed by HarperCollins to write three travel memoirs. In 2013 I started self-publishing YA and adult romance on Amazon and never looked back.

Where do you live?

I’ve been lucky enough to live in a lot of places since my early 20s (NYC, London, Dubai, Australia), but my traveling brought me to Amsterdam in August 2016 and this is the first place I’ve been in a long time that truly feels like home. I might even get a cat (gasp). I’m British and I grew up in the South Holland District of Lincolnshire, a place that’s also surrounded by tulips. Maybe my subconscious finds a comfort in flowers?!  

My best trait is:

I guess I go with the flow most of the time. My friends would probably say I’m pretty happy and positive in general. Last year a friend pointed me towards an app called Insight Timer, which has been truly instrumental in helping me take time out each day to recharge my batteries. Ironically, it’s a big app that kind of drains my iPhone battery at the same time, but oh well.

My worst trait is:

I’m easily distracted… oh, can you hold that thought, I have to check Facebook….

Five things on your bucket list:

  • Write a New York Times bestseller and meet Oprah Winfrey
  • Marry the man who makes me laugh and gives me butterflies
  • Learn to ski (I’ve only tried snowboarding, and that was in Dubai, of all places!)
  • Buy a house with room in the yard for a ‘writing shed’, or a mansion. OK, let’s just go with the mansion
  • Start a podcast for writers and readers

My first Medical Romance, Tempted by Her Hot-Shot Doc, will be released to retailers (including Amazon, on February 22. The single digital edition will be released to the M&B website on February 01. You can now pre-order the UK version from Amazon.co.uk.
