April New Releases

Happy April! March seemed to go by in a blur. I feel like I was sucker punched and missed it, but I didn’t. I think April might go by just as fast and I figured out why, deadlines. Yep, that was my problem in March and now April.

Of course, deadlines do bring about new books, so that’s a positive spin!

And here are some brand new books that were once an author’s DREADED deadline. 😉

Also, we’re celebrating a MILESTONE this month with Marion Lennox’s amazing 125th book! Congratulations!

Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels

Backlist bounty by Amy Andrews

One of the best things about being a Harlequin author is how often they re-invigorate your backlist. Not every reader gets every book of yours when they’re out and this gives everyone a second chance or new readers their first taste.

It’s especially great when they’re released as part of an anthology and grouped around a particular theme – like paremedics, or babies or midwives etc etc. This lets readers shop and buy according to the tropes/themes that they love and hopefully they’ll also find a new author or three 🙂

I’m lucky to currently be paired with the fabuous Marion Lennox and Meredith Webber in a Christmas anthology that’s out here on shelf at the moment. I just love the sunny Aussie cover!

xmasHarl

Its also available digitally.

Here are the three books included for anyone interested.

************************************************************************************

From Christmas To Forever – Marion Lennox

Heiress Dr Pollyanna Hargreaves has been wrapped in cotton wool all her life, now she’s determined to strike out on her own! But she never expected to get stuck with handsome GP Dr Hugo Denver for Christmas. He’s meant to have left on holiday with his adorable niece already – not be tempting her at every turn!

Forced to work together Hugo’s icy exterior soon begins to thaw. And it’s not long before Polly realises that she’s falling for him…and little Ruby too!

Swept Away By The Seductive Stranger – Amy Andrews

Nurse Felicity Mitchell’s train journey of a lifetime was even more unforgettable when she met Callum Hollingsworth. Neither were looking for temptation, but that didn’t stop them from sharing one hot, wild night!

Except when they disembark they learn that what happened on the train won’t stay on the train. Because the gorgeous stranger is Flick’s new boss…and it’s increasingly difficult to keep their chemistry under control, and leave it at just one night!

The Temptation Test – Meredith Webber

When Jena arrived in Kareela, three weeks before Christmas, she had one goal: to convince her boss to put her on his new TV survival series. But first she had to survive primitive accommodation, filming a documentary about Kareela’s bush hospital, and the ever-so-tempting Dr Noah Blacklock.

A relationship was no part of her agenda and, as a man still technically engaged, it wasn’t part of Noah’s, either. But oh, Jena was so beautiful. They failed the Temptation Test repeatedly, but neither was going to turn a wonderful affair into something altogether more memorable!

*************************************************************************************

Tell me, have you ever found an author you’ve gone on to love/glom from an anthology?

PS – I have another Xmas book out at the moment on shelf in the US and digitally everywhere. Its a romcom not a medical but if you love a good festive read, you can’t go wrong!

Book Awards, Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels

Exciting News! RITA Finalists

Colour us thrilled!  The RITA Finalists this year have included two Medical Romances, and no less than four Medical Romance authors.

Warmest congratulations to Amy Andrews (who is a double finalist!!), Scarlet Wilson, Avril Tremayne and Marion Lennox.  We’ve asked authors to say a few words, and included details of their books.

Medical Romance

Amy Andrews – ‘A Christmas Miracle’

I’m super thrilled to be a RITA double finalist. It’s been my dream and goal to one day final in this prestigious award and I can’t believe when it finally happened (I’ve been entering for 12 years!) two of my books finalled! I’ve been floating since I got the email and expect to float all the way to Denver. At least it will save me an airfare 🙂

I’m extra excited to see 2 medicals final in the awards. If one of them wins it’ll be the first medical ever to have won the RITA so fingers crossed for both Scarlet and I!

Scarlet Wilson – ‘The Doctor and The Princess’

Getting the call about the Rita was a little unusual.  I knew it was Rita call day and I’d emailed a few friends that morning to wish them luck.  I still work full time and was just about to start chairing at meeting at 2pm when my phone rang.  My first surprise was that I had a signal – the place where the meeting is held is notorious for no cell phone coverage.  The next surprise was the New York flashing up on my screen.  Since I don’t know anyone who stays there my stomach gave a little flip and I just smiled at my colleagues and said, “Sorry, I have to get this.”  So, they all listened while I got my Rita call from Damon Suede.  I’ve been nominated before but what makes it so special this time is that it’s one of my medical books that is a finalist.  We all adore our line, but it isn’t as popular in the US, so I’m delighted that five RWA members have read it, and thought it worthy to final.  I’m even happier to have Amy Andrews waving the medical flag beside me.  Go Medicals!  Who knows, my next med might be set in Denver!!

Other Titles by Medical Romance Authors

Avril Tremayne – ‘The Dating Game’

What chaos there was a the house the morning I found out I was a finalist in the RITAs.  I’d missed a call at five o’clock in the morning (I am not an early riser believe me) and I was checking my emails at a more dignified nine o’clock-is when I saw the news.  Screaming ensued, right at the time a delivery man was at the door handing something over to my husband and I’m sure he wondered if I was being held captive upstairs and tortured.  And there was thereafter much rejoicing – in fact, there still is!

What makes it especially exciting for me with The Dating Game (Long Contemporary Romance) is that it’s my favourite story.  I was so ecstatic with it when it was finished (and that is never, ever the case for me) the wait to see if it would be published was excruciating.  I told my editor it was the best thing I’d written, but I know we’re not always the best judges of our work, so to have this honour in company with so many brilliant authors makes me feel I do know what I’m doing after all.

The Dating Game_FINALYou need to learn the rules fast!

Sarah’s brother Adam has been educating her best friend Lane in the arts of the Kama Sutra for weeks, all in the pursuit of Lane’s real target, David Bennet. So when Sarah finds herself alone with David at an exhibition, weeping over her own terrible dating history, they strike up a conversation. A budding artist, he wants to paint her, so she agrees in return for a guarantee that he’ll find her a relationship that can last more than three weeks (her rather dismal personal best).

She reassures herself that she isn’t betraying Lane. After all, Sarah wants marriage and 2.4 kids, and David has made it more than clear he will never want that. Plus he’s going to sleep with Lane any day now. Isn’t he?
