His Very Special Nurse by Margaret McDonagh

Title: His Very Special Nurse

Author: Margaret McDonagh

Line: Mills and Boon Medical Romance

Release month: June 2007

The S-Factor:Sweet

The bachelor doctor’s bride

Devastatingly handsome, dark and brooding, and with a slight Scottish burr to his deep, sexy voice… Nurse Alex Patterson cannot help but be drawn to her new boss. But her instincts tell her there is pain behind his blue eyes and her nature tells her she must help him.

Dr Kyle Sinclair hasn’t so much as looked at a woman since his marriage fell apart, but he is immediately attracted to this warm, caring nurse. Could she be the one to heal Kyle’s heart and help him to love again?

His Very Special Nurse is the latest moving Medical Romance by up and coming M&B star Margaret McDonagh. Set in a remote Scottish village, His Very Special Nurse is a poignant story about love and loss that will have you reaching for the tissues.

Dr Kyle Sinclair hasn’t looked at another woman – or thought about one - ever since his marriage to his childhood sweetheart fell apart. But the arrival of new nurse Alexandra Patterson to the practice has caused the rekindling of feelings he had thought long buried and despite his better judgement, he finds himself falling head over heels in love with the new practice nurse.

Alexandra is also finding herself attracted to the brooding doctor despite his taciturn manner and even though she has been warned by a colleague not to go near him, she finds herself unable to resist him. But will Kyle let her get close? Or will he let the shadows of the past weigh in on his future with Alexandra?

Margaret McDonagh is an outstanding storyteller whose Medical romances are in a class of their own. Well-written, intensely dramatic and highly emotional, His Very Special Nurse is a spellbinding romance that will captivate you from the very first page. If you’ve not read Margaret McDonagh’s Medical Romances, then rush to the bookshop and get His Very Special Nurse. You will certainly not regret it!

Reunited: Marriage in a Million - Liz Fielding

Title: Reunited: Marriage in a Million

Author: Liz Fielding

Line: Romance

The S-Factor: Sweet


Trophy bride to wife for life...

Popular TV presenter Belle is married to gorgeous billionaire Ivo, and lives in a beautiful Belgravia mansion. But beneath the veneer of her perfect life is the truth of their marriage of convenience.

Belle knows that workaholic Ivo prefers their family of two, but somewhere along the way she fell deeply in love with her husband, and can’t help wishing for a baby to make their family complete. Now they must find it within themselves to share the secrets they’ve never trusted each other to tell, and make their marriage one in a million again.


Reunited: Marriage in a Million is the first of a trilogy sharing the journeys of three heroines as they confide in each other – secrets that they’ve previously held close to their hearts and that nobody in the world knows.

Liz Fielding takes us with her on Belle’s emotion-packed journey of discovery and we’re in for a bumpy ride. We accompany Belle as she makes the momentous decision to be true to herself.

This is a story filled with glamour and everything that comes with being a popular icon in the world of television and the wife of a successful billionaire. Liz Fielding strips away the glossy exterior that the public knows, and gives us an emotional insight into Belle and Ivo’s real lives.

Reunited: Marriage in a Million is a story that contains everything we’ve come to expect from Liz Fielding – the veteran of romance fiction. Her well-honed expertise is apparent at each and every perfectly-plotted twist and turn of this story.

When you pick up any Liz Fielding novel, you’re guaranteed a well-written, altogether moving experience and Reunited: Marriage in a Million is no exception.

Breakfast at Giovanni's - Kate Hardy

Title: Breakfast at Giovanni's

Author: Kate Hardy

Line: Modern Extra

Release month: July 2007

The S-Factor: Sizzling


Her new Italian boss is the sexiest man alive!

Having just been fired, Francesca has three immediate requirements: a coffee, an extremely calorific pastry and a new job. Stopping off at her favourite cafe, Giovanni's she manages to pick up all three!

Fran's new job working for darkly handsome Giovanni Mazetti is fantastic - except she soon discovers it comes with a tantalising caveat: pretending to be his adoring girlfriend! It's all to get Gio's interfering grandmother off his back, not to mention his parents, sisters, aunts... It's a tough life, but someone's got to kiss the oh-so-sexy Gio, and it might as well be her...if only it could be for real! But when the kisses start happening in private, Fran discovers that breakfast at Giovanni's has a whole new meaning...

This is Kate Hardy's 25th publication for Mills & Boon and Kate couldn't have celebrated better than with sexy Giovanni - he is HOT!

Francesca is a warm, loveable heroine, and just what Giovanni needs. His large Italian family fall in love with Fran from the moment they meet her, and Fran reciprocates the feelings.

Kate Hardy delivers everything her faithful readers have come to expect - a well researched story, a very sexy hero who is deserving of the lovely heroine, and secondary characters who don't take over the story yet are integral to the plot.

This is a gorgeous story that touches the reader on all levels - it's humorous, romantic, and emotional. A delicious read on all counts.

The Sicilian's Red-Hot Revenge by Kate Walker

Title: The Sicilian's Red-Hot Revenge

Author: Kate Walker

Line: Modern/Presents

Release month: UK - June 07 USA - July 07

The S-Factor: Sizzling!


Emily Lawton never expected to see him again. But somehow Vito Corsentino has tracked her down! The fiery, brooding Sicilian wants Emily. This time he’ll take her and he’ll be the one to discard her when it’s over!But quiet Emily has one last shock in store for Vito… She’s having his baby and if he finds out he’ll want more than revenge!


This is Kate's 50th book and oh what a book! It's a very powerful and passionate love story with another of Kate's "hot" Italian men and this time it's Vito!
THE SICILIAN’S RED-HOT REVENGE exemplifies a Harlequin Presents book at its very best! Vito is drop dead gorgeous, spirited, stubborn at times, and very passionate. And when he's angry, well watch out!As you learned in Sicilian Husband, Blackmailed Bride, Guido has a brother Vito and they are in business together. For years they worked non-stop and promised each other on their 30th birthday they would take a year off and this is Vito's year. As he comes from a shipbuilding family, his passion is carving; so he rents a flat near the shore in England. In this same book, you also learn that at a wedding a woman faints and of course this is one introduction in meeting Emily.
On one very particular day Vito is out walking and sees a beautiful Englishwoman on the beach and is immediately captivated by her and while watching her from afar, he realizes she is in danger of drowning in the ocean and he comes to her rescue. Their attraction is immediate and Vito insists that Emily accompany him back to his flat to get warmed up and out of her wet clothes. After a short kiss on the beach, Emily realizes she is in trouble, but in the end goes home with Vito.Of course, any hot blooded Italian who is so desperately attracted to a woman like Emily...not just her simple beauty but her spirit and the passion he sees in her eyes can't control himself. Once they come together all is lost for them both.
However, the tables are turned when Vito retrieves Emily's personal belongings and answers her cell. There he finds out that she is married and anger doesn't even describe his emotions. Emily flees back home and Vito returns to Italy. One evening while dining with his brother and sister in-law he learns that at the wedding his brother broke up there was a woman who fainted and her name was Emily Lawton. Vito is shocked and reacts quickly, flying to England and to Emily.
Vito and Emily's reuniting was very painful for me to read. It so depicts how miscommunication or lack of it can destroy a relationship. Honesty finally prevails, a lesson we can all learn and their passion, longing and yearning will take your breath away.
Congratulations to Kate Walker on this 50th book. However, I would personally like to say, thank you to Kate for the wonderful hours of reading you have personally provided this reader and please keep those books coming! Perhaps we can find another Corsentino sibling out there so we can see how Vito and Guido are doing?
