Review my very first Mills & Boon Medical Romance

I actually wrote one... a Mills & Boon! I remember reading my gran's Mills & Boon books all those years ago and wishing I could slip inside one of those hot pink covers and meet my Mr Right for real. Turns out I haven't yet, so I'm writing him into reality myself. This time it's a hot, sexy American doc, stuck in the Amazon jungle with a woman he can't resist, and a secret. Here are all the covers... 2...Read More

A few seconds later I got a photo from him. There was the drink - a giant margarita the size of...Read More
