International Nurses and Midwife’s Day

International Nurses and Midwives Day Blog Post:

Our jobs are particularly wonderful when we get to celebrate important medical professions such as nursing and midwifery. These occupations impact people’s lives day in and day out and are some of the most important jobs in the world. This month, for International Nurses Day and the International Day of the Midwife, we think it’s a wonderful time for this hard work and recognition to be celebrated. Join us in these celebrations by delving into some uplifting nurse and midwife reads from Mills & Boon/Harlequin.

Taking a Chance on the Best Man by Fiona McArthur

Former midwife Isabel is always the bridesmaid, never the bride. Yet, she doesn’t count on best man, Dr Domenico bursting into her life! Years ago, Isabel firmly shut the door to love. Now, Dom is starting to break down her barriers… and his ability to see the real her has Isabel asking if she is ready to risk it all on their unexpected connection?

The Midwife’s Miracle Twins by Caroline Anderson

Midwife Georgie loves her job. But believing she’ll never hold her own baby makes life on the maternity ward bittersweet. So, whilst the arrival of gorgeous obstetrician, Dan, is an unwanted distraction …it’s exactly the distraction she needs. Until a difficult delivery has them finding comfort in each other’s arms – and Georgie discovers the incredible consequences of their night!

A Nurse to Claim His Heart by Juliette Hyland. This is the first book in the Neonatal Nurses duet.

When Dr Benedict saves an infant, the treatment he performs with nurse Penny becomes a social media sensation! Not least because the world thinks they’re a couple… Whilst a real relationship is a no-go zone for divorced Benedict, prolonging their ‘fauxmance’ is the perfect way to raise vital hospital funds.  Except, the longer it continues, the more real it feels…

Neonatal Doc on Her Doorstep by Scarlet Wilson. The second book in the Neonatal Nurses duet.

Alice needs a housemate – stat! So, the nurse reluctantly agrees to give Dr Douglas a place to stay. It’s clear that whilst Dougie may have started a new life in Washington, he didn’t leave the ghosts of his past behind…just as Alice can’t hide from hers. Still, he’s as irresistible as he is infuriating! Is she falling for the doctor in the room next door?

Lastly, in May, we have the release of the Portland Midwives duet with The Doctor She Should Resist by Amy Ruttan 

Midwife Hazel is not looking for a relationship. So, why is she so drawn to Dr Caleb? Especially when he’s from the hospital that delayed the opening of her birthing centre. The enigmatic surgeon knows just how to push all her buttons…and sparks soon fly in every direction! But with Hazel’s heart already damaged, can she believe Caleb will heal it?

And The Midwife from His Past by Julie Danvers

When Dr Eliot is called to an emergency, he’s stunned to find ex-fiancée and midwife Bria in the operating room. He’s no longer plagued by the financial worries of his childhood. But his intense attraction to Bria? That’s exactly the same! And when Eliot discovers what was really behind their break-up, acting on that attraction is all he can think about…We hope you will join us in celebrating all of the Nurses and Midwives around the world!

What do you love in a Medical Romance?

Hello!

I’m Hannah, the new Editorial Assistant for the Harlequin Medical Romance team. Though, I’m not completely new to the Harlequin family… I have, for the past two years, been part of the wonderful Harlequin Presents team!

I’ve been spending my first few weeks on the team, immersing myself in all things Medical Romance. One day I’m reading a story set in ER, the next in a small, village practice – what’s not to love! So, I thought, for my first blog post here, that would be a good place to start. Telling you, the lovely Love is the Best Medicine readers what I love about Medical Romance stories…

A Royal Love Story…

It’s no secret in the office that I’m a big fan of the royal family. If I went on Mastermind, the royal family would 100% be my specialist subject! And, I love nothing more, in Medical Romance than a royal love story. Imagine turning up for your first day at work, and finding out that the Head of Paediatrics is also a Prince – or Princess!

An Army Doc…

My flatmate and I love the TV series Our Girl. So, it’s no surprise that I’m also partial to an Army Doc. It’s also a great opportunity, as a reader, to find yourself in an unconventional medical setting! I love widening my Medical Romance horizons…

The Medical Romance I Would Love to Read…

I’m going to start by saying that yes, this is absolutely the result of binge-watching every episode of Bondi Rescue… But, I would love to read a Medical Romance that focuses on the romance of a lifeguard and a medic! I have, as you can probably tell, been thinking about this potential story – my inbox is always open, current or aspiring authors! – and I can just imagine a lifeguard hero (or heroine!) meeting, just after a rescue, a paramedic or doctor on the beach. Cue their love story! If anybody has watched Bondi Rescue, I’d love to hear from you! Who’s your favourite lifeguard? I think mine is Harrison – though I do have a soft spot for Harries… He is, after all, the ultimate playboy who finds, in the right woman, the life he’s always wanted.

I’d love to hear what you love in a Medical Romance!

Hannah
