Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels

Guest blog – Fiona McArthur

Thanks so much for welcoming me back and huge congrats to the RITA finalists. Super dooper great news.

In my news I’m lucky enough to have two books out this month with two different publishers and I’d love to share them over here on LITBM. I think both have beautiful covers and the stories still warm my heart.

HEALED BY THE MIDWIFE’S KISS is the my second book in the Midwives of Lighthouse Bay Series and my 35th Medical Romance for Harlequin Mills and Boon.

Finn, my single dad doctor, has the cutest baby daughter in Piper and I just love, love, love the way they interact with each other. Then again, widowed midwife Catrina does too, though with a pang for what she’s believes she’s never going to have. Catrina is my Lighthouse Bay midwife, the one who lives in the second cottage on the hill overlooking the gorgeous beach, and I love this book, love these people and love Lighthouse Bay. It was so good to drop in there and catch up with previous characters and I hope you enjoy your visit because there’s more romantic Lighthouse Bay books coming next year.

HEALED BY THE MIDWIFE’S KISS is available now.

My second book this month is out as a paperback in April but the ebook is out now on all platforms.

Mothers Day_FCAMOTHERS’ DAY has a long history with medical romance, some may remember my second ever book for HM&B way back in 2002 which I have the rights back to now. I’ve always wanted to delve into the lives of those secondary characters of Jacinta and Noni’s Aunt Win as well as watch Noni drag Iain into the real world of families. Thankfully, Penguin Random House in Australia loved the idea and here we have a great big, juicy book, full of strong women. I’m so proud of it and can’t wait to share.

MOTHERS’ DAY celebrates mums and those who aren’t really your mum but mother you anyway. And of course this is Jacinta’s pregnancy journey so if you know someone who’s having a baby there are so many really fun antenatal scenes during the classes in the book. I’m sure they’d love it too.

MOTHERS’ DAY is available as an ebook, now.

When I had my four under four boys, and was working two days a week as a midwife, my next door neighbour mothered me when my mum was working. She’d sneak to my washing line and fold all my clothes, or take the boys next door and tell me to just read a book for an hour. You can guess what I read. Yep. Medical romance. She was wonderful. We all know someone who mothers you, it could be your awesome mum, a big sister or someone else, and you are so very thankful for them. I’d love to hear about your special mothering person or someone you mother because you understand. Mum’s are awesome.

Warmest wishes for a safe and joyful Easter.

A Drum Roll Tattoo, by Fiona McArthur

Christmas 2014.

That’s how long since I’ve had a new book out in Medical Romance. My last two Lyrebird Lake books in the series were my last publication with Harlequin Mills and Boon. I’ve been playing over at Penguin with my contemporary fiction books and a non-fiction midwifery anthology…

Until now. 🙂

A MONTH TO MARRY THE MIDWIFE

Ta da! I’m so excited to be back and I promise it won’t be so long until the next instalment.

Door opens. In steps Ellie and Sam.

I’ve given you the Australian cover version because it’s my first cover with a tattoo on my hero. I can’t believe Sam didn’t tell me he had one.

I’ve only just found out, and as a mother of five sons and no tattoos, he’s the first one of my children to do that. It was a ‘blink’ moment but I think it suits him. I may have to write a short story to find out when it arrived. What do you think of a doctor with a tattoo?

So…I’ve started a whole new series set in Lighthouse Bay and would love you to visit this small hospital perched on the edge of the cliff, far northern NSW. Come meet my midwives, babies, and sexy new (mysteriously tattooed) doctors with blue, blue ocean, white sand and my quirky little town called Lighthouse Bay.

Like a glass of champagne this book bubbled up and put a zing in my day that made me smile. And made me remember how much I enjoyed the immersion of being in a love story in a medical romance novel. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Speaking of Lighthouses – next week I’m staying in one.

Technically, it’s the Head Lightkeeper’s Cottage, but we’ll be sipping champagne in the dark, our backs against the white tower, watching the beams flash out over the ocean and listening to the waves a long way below. For three days of writing and long nights of desultory conversation, with my dear writing friends Bronwyn Jameson and Elle Findlay, I’ll be cooking up adventures in Lighthouse Bay. It’s a very special place. Just ask Amy Andrews. Jealous Amy? 🙂

Falling for the midwife

Midwife Ellie Swift has devoted herself to beautiful Lighthouse Bay’s tiny hospital. After a painful divorce, she’s vowed never to get involved with another man—but then the sexy new locum obstetrician walks through the door!

Despite his own damaged heart, Sam Southwell is captivated by Ellie’s warmth and compassion. She’s a woman who deserves the fairytale! It won’t be easy to change her mind but Sam’s never walked away from a challenge…

Have you got any tattoo tales? Surprises. Ones of your own. I need inspiration for that short story I need to write. 🙂

Happy reading and see you next time xx Fi
