Book Awards, Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels

The RoNAs 2017! by Kate Hardy

A couple of weeks ago, I was thrilled to attend the Romantic Novelists’ Association annual awards do. It was especially lovely because I’m good friends with everyone who was shortlisted for the RoNA Rose award, and I was really looking forward to catching up with everyone. Louisa Heaton was up for her first nomination, Scarlet Wilson for her fifth, and me for my seventh (OK, so I’m greedy…). And it was FAB.

Sadly, Louisa went down with a nasty bug the day before the awards (and we missed her so much!).

They say that a picture tells a thousand words, so I’m telling most of our day by pictures.

Firstly we had lunch with the editors at the Corinthia. Anticlockwise from me – that’s editor Bryony Green, Christy McKellen, editor Linda Fildew, Virginia Heath, editor Sheila Hodgson, Scarlet Wilson, and editor Megan Haslam.

Then we had some pink fizzy in Scarlet’s room and dressed up before heading to the Gladstone Library at One Whitehall Place. (It’s pretty much opposite the London Eye.)

Look at the amazing staircase!

And our shortlisted books were on show.

And then it was time for the official photographs. (LTR Scarlet, Christy, me, Virginia.)

And then we waited nervously at the table next to our editors…

Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels, Holiday Celebrations

Introducing Charlotte Ellis

charlotte-ellis-bio-imageHello everyone!

I’m Charlotte the new Editorial Assistant for the Harlequin/Mills and Boon Medical Romance team. And seeing as I’ve been here at True Love towers for a couple of months I thought it was high time I introduced myself—but bear with me, writing about yourself is a lot harder than I first thought! Although as we’re on the countdown to Christmas and the Medical Romance Christmas line-up is in full swing I think it best to start there.

I’ve always been one of those people that was adamant Christmas celebrations should be saved until December and in our house the smooth melodies of Michael Bublé’s Christmas album and whimsical sound of ‘Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ (my favourite Christmas song) are not normally heard before December 1st. But recently I’ve realised how very wrong I was! Working at Harlequin/Mills and Boon you get the holiday season in abundance and I’m loving it! Not only do I get to work with the wonderful and real-life Medical Romance authors and our editorial team but the fact that our gorgeous doctor heroes start appearing in Christmas books from October means I can certainly see the benefits of the extended holiday season.

But that’s just one more thing to love about Christmas. For me the real magic of Christmas isn’t just the day itself but those few weeks in the run up to the special day and the anticipation that builds as each and every single chocolate is released from its little advent calendar prison!

So here are some of my favourite parts:

  1. The cold weather! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean actually being out in it! Being a netballer, I have had to endure the wind, rain and snow willingly on occasion, but I do not normally enjoy having to brave the elements. There is, however, a wonderfully magical appeal to curling up on the sofa with a mug of tea and the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy (though it’s not the same since the loss of McDreamy) and watching as the weather wages war outside.
  1. Family get-togethers. I love spending time with my family and Christmas for me is really an excuse to do just that. Our adaption of Radio 4’s ‘Desert Island Disc’s’ into a family Christmas event has become an annual favourite.
  1. Christmas trees. Is there anything more wonderful than the smell of a Christmas tree?!
  1. The lights! Everything is lit up like, dare I say it, a Christmas tree, giving everything a beautiful glow and making the journey home from work much more festive.
  1. The chance to read a good book (or ten!). With the extra time off at Christmas the chance to read a good Christmassy book has finally arrived. And mixing it with a little romance makes it all the more magical. Indeed Medical Romance is stuffed full of Christmas crackers this year. From a wonderful Christmas duet by Emily Forbes and Amy Andrews, released in October, to a full on Christmas line up in November and December, including a gorgeous four-book seasonal linked miniseries set in maternity from Tina Beckett, Kate Hardy, Susannne Hampton and Scarlet Wilson and fabulous festive stories from Alison Roberts, Annie, O Neil, Janice Lynn, Amy Ruttan, Carol Marinelli, Sue MacKay, Susan Carlisle and Louisa Heaton. I can’t wait!

I’d love to hear from you so leave me a comment below (and tell me all about what makes your Christmas so special!)

Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels

Finding a new hero….

It’s that time again.  I’m just about to start a new book.  This will be a Christmas one for next year and I’m frantically searching for my latest hero.

I always have a few personal favourites in the back of my head.

gorgeous-doug

George has always been a personal favourite, particularly the scene where he was all wet rescuing a child from a storm drain…

patrick_dempsey_transformers3

But then I’m a bit partial to Patrick too.  Shame on you Shonda Rhimes.   Grey’s will never be the same again.

picard

Most of you will know I like a bit of sci-fi too.  Captain Picard will always be the best starship Captain.  He might be lacking in hair, but he definitely makes up for it in ethics and an absolute sense of rightness.  I particularly loved him as a Borg…..

 

zachary-quinto1

Then there is the new Spock.  I LOVE Zachary Quinto.  The hair is definitely questionable, as is the eyebrows, but the characterisation is spot on.

Finally there’s a new boy in town.

chris-pratt

I was very partial to Chris Pratt in Jurassic World.  So much to love.  (We won’t discuss the girl in the white suit!)

But I’m still no closer.   I’m starting this book on 1 November, so I guess that still gives me a few days to research my hero.  Doesn’t it ladies??

I”m also on a book fest at the moment.  I have two releases, one medical and one romance so take your pick!

Christmas in the Boss’s Castle got me my 25 book pin from Harlequin this year and that might make it my favourite!

Finally I went a little crazy the other day. Flo Nichol one of the Mills and Boon eds tweeted a picture of some vintage coasters with Mills and Boon book covers  on them. I have hunted everywhere but couldn’t find a set. So I made a set of my own.

My teenage son is wise beyond his years. He took one look when they arrived and said “yeah nice, but we won’t actually be allowed to use them, will we?”

You know Elliott, you might be right!
