She’s just what the doctor ordered...

 

Workaholic, Nicola Mills is fine burying herself in spreadsheets for her job as a Risk Assessment Manager for an airline. That’s perfect because it helps her avoid thinking about the tragic death of her husband five years ago. In his will, he made one seemingly impossible request that she’s neglected to fulfill. After all, it means traveling halfway across the globe to Australia. It’s only when her boss forces her to take some time off that she’s able to carry out her mission.

When she’s injured in a freak accident in the Australian outback, she winds up in the clinic of the world’s most condescending doctor. The two of them butt heads from the moment they meet. Too bad he’s so hot!

Doctor Leif Connors has had his fill of the corporate rat race and the manipulative relationships that come with it. After a devastating breakup years ago, he’s chosen to live a solitary existence in his remote clinic. He has little respect for people, and even less regard for the overbearing tourists traipsing through his native country. When Nicola ends up in his care, he places her in the same category as every other privileged Yank he’s ever met. But once he learns the true purpose of her trip, he looks at her in a new light. He wonders if the cure for what ails him might be love down under.

Remember: You can't expect any sizzle...if you don't turn up the heat!

Thank you for giving me the chance to talk about handsome Australian doctor, Leif Connors, and the American tourist, Nicola Mills, that he falls head over stethoscope for! Love Down Under is a romantic comedy sprinkled with witty dialogue and steamy sex.

Tell us about your title featured in this set: 

 

My story is called Love Down Under.  You won’t believe how it came to fruition. A friend of mine won a trip through her employer to Australia. She works for an airline, but she hasn’t taken a vacation in over 5 years. I said, “Wouldn’t it be awesome if you went to Australia and met a hot doctor there?” She replied, “Yeah! You could call it Going Down Under.” The title was supposed to be a double entendre—my friend’s mind is just as dirty as mine. But I changed the title to Love Down Under at the last minute. That’s truly how the book came into being!

Tell us something about yourself: 

 

I’m a military brat who grew up in Germany. I’ve made Texas my permanent home.  I have a Bachelor’s degree in Finance, but I never got to utilize the darn thing. So, when I got laid off in 2008, instead of going immediately back to another boring job that sucked the creative juices from me, I went on Unemployment and wrote 2 books in 6 months. That started on my journey as a published author. I’m married to my soul mate of 11 years. He’s my biggest fan. In fact, the story of how we met could be a book too!
Tell us about your writing process: 

 

I’m a Plant-ser who can write anywhere. I start out as a plotter, completing a high-level outline of each chapter of my book. I call this the skeleton or the bones. Once I’ve created the bones, I use Dragon dictation software to dictate all the “meat.” Then, I send the book to my editor(s) so I can publish it. 

What is your favourite genre to read? 

 

Yikes! That’s like asking a woman to only choose ONE pair of shoes to take on vacation! Anything historical, romantic comedies, kickass heroines, and apocalyptic stories. What would you say is the one thing are you most passionate about? 

 

History and getting the details right.
When you are not writing, what do you like to do? 

 

Collect comic books (featuring characters of color and strong heroines), indulge my obsession with The Walking Dead, and shop for shoes—because you can never have enough pairs.

If someone who hasn’t read any your books asked you to describe your story in this set (the elevator pitch!) what would you say? 

 

Crocodile Dundee meets Gray’s Anatomy. My headstrong heroine goes on a mission to the Great Barrier Reef where meets a hot Australian doctor with a disdain for foreigners. The two fight their attraction for each other, but realized all along, they were meant for Love Down Under.

     When he stalked toward her and stopped within one foot of her nose, her heart slammed against her ribcage. She stared into a pair of sinfully beautiful eyes. Were they aqua? Turquoise? She couldn’t pinpoint the color. She only knew they were doing a damn good job of melting her panties. The lashes that framed his eyes were full and lush, bordered by dark blonde eyebrows that reminded her of the wheat fields where she grew up in The Plains area of Texas. They had just the right amount of sculpt. Not too manscaped. Not too Grizzly Adams. 

     Her gaze followed the bridge of his long, aquiline nose to where it flared into broad nostrils. Light blonde stubble peppered his upper lip and chin. She’d always thought the five o’clock shadow was sexy, but this barely-there goatee was a turn-on, too. The only thing wrong was the set of full lips that dipped into a frown of disapproval.

     “Woman, you’re in the outback. In the middle of nowhere. This is Far Northern Queensland, Australia. Over one hundred and seventy-six thousand square kilometers of land, carpeted with desert flowers and the occasional wallaby. There is no taxi coming out here. There is no hotel shuttle. We barely have running water. I just emptied the compost toilet this morning. I’ll show you how to do it if you like.”

     She gasped. “You cannot be serious!”

     A glint of challenge sparked in his eyes. “Oh, but I am.”

     “I’m your patient, not your servant. I refuse to do chores while you keep me here against my will.”

     “You expect me to be your doctor and your errand boy? Typical Yank.” Before she could retort, he grasped her uninjured hand and turned it over in his. “Looks like you’ve never done a hard day’s work in your life, sweet’art.”

     “That’s where you’re wrong. What I do is extremely challenging. Millions of lives are in my hands.”

     “Oh, are you a doctor as well?”

     “No, I work for an airline.”

     “Are you a pilot?”

     “No.” She snatched her hand from his. Why did everyone always assume people who worked for an airline were pilots?  “I’m a Risk Assessment Manager.”

     His eyes narrowed. “What the hell is that?”

     “A statistician who determines potential hazards and outcomes.”

     “I thought you said you save lives.”

     “I said millions of lives are in my hands. I calculate risks and the probability of dying and flight patterns and all that stuff. You wouldn’t understand.” He chuckled. His laugh would have been nice if it weren’t so condescending. “You find that amusing?”

     “No one can really calculate risk. It’s either gonna happen or it ain’t gonna happen. That’s a waste of a salary to me. How much they pay you to do that anyway?”

     “None of your business!”

     “You say that a lot. Is it your mantra or something?”

     “I don’t need a mantra. When it comes to you, I need a muzzle.”

     “Careful, lady. You don’t want to tangle with a man who has enough tranquilizer to put a full-grown kangaroo down for a nap.”

     She scowled. “You have the worst bedside manner of any doctor I’ve ever met.”

     “And you’re the worst patient I’ve ever had.”

     “Finally, we agree on something.”

Their undying love could be the death of them…    


OR nurse Wylee Quartermaine knows she should be saving lives, but instead, she’s adding to the horror and carnage of the zombie outbreak. With the apocalypse now in motion, people are dying all over Twilight Cove, Georgia, not once, but twice—and the second time is by her hand.

When Wylee is infected at the height of the mayhem, her hot surgeon lover and fiancé Dr. Gabriel Phoenix risks his life to save her, even in the face of doom. It’s a race against time and an unknown plague in this action-packed zombie paranormal urban fantasy romance.

Josie Jax is the new pseudonym for a USA Today bestselling author multi-published in the sub-romance genres of paranormal, historical, contemporary, sci-fi, menage (and more), and LGBT. She is a wife, mother of three, grandmother of one beautiful baby girl, and momma to the most precious cat ever!

Hi! Thanks for the invite to talk about my new release Operation Twilight in the Coming In Hot medical romance boxed set. Thrilled to be here!
Tell us about your title featured in this set: 
My contribution to the boxed set is titled Operation Twilight and is an urban fantasy zombie medical romance. (Yes, I’m crazy about The Walking Dead!) I brainstormed the title based on a combination of the cover art and the medical romance call for submissions (thus “operation”).

Tell us something about yourself:I’m originally from Missouri, although I’ve lived all over the Midwest—South Dakota, Missouri, Texas, Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Florida. (I think that’s it!) I’m a registered nurse and have worked in ICU, recovery, medical-surgical, oncology, and pediatrics. I’m married with three grown kids and I have one new granddaughter. (Love that baby girl!)

Tell us about your writing process:
Honestly, I don’t have a specific process. I just write when I write and when the words come to me. I’ve grown to be easily distracted and forgetful over the thirteen-plus years I’ve been a published author (under a retired pseudonym), so I have to write it when it’s on the tip of my brain.

What is your favourite genre to read?
Depends on what day you ask. ;D But I could safely say contemporary and paranormal romance.

What would you say is the one thing you are most passionate about?
Besides family, writing, and reading, I’m very into politics…but you won’t get the details out of me. J

When you are not writing, what do you like to do?
Read, go for walks, bike ride, and keep up with my fave TV and Netflix series.

If someone who hasn’t read any of your books asked you to describe your story in this set (the elevator pitch!) what would you say?
Here’s a short blurb for Operation Twilight by Josie Jax:

Operation Twilight by Josie Jax
[Unedited excerpt]

     Gabe had never experienced such panic in his life. Not even when the damn rotters were after him.

     He examined her ankle and confirmed the marks were most likely from a small human. It gutted him to imagine her as one of them—gurgling, shuffling along with spittle trailing from her mouth. He thrust a hand through his hair and forced down the need to vomit.

     What should he do? She’d been bitten. If he had any balls at all, he’d kill her to prevent further spread of the disease.

     But goddamn, just look at her…

     Long layers of blonde hair framed her heart-shaped face and emphasized her slightly too-wide mouth. Stunning crystal-blue eyes said “make me come” with a single bat of her dark lashes. And those naked curves, that sexy petite body. He shook his head.

     How could he eliminate her?

     He loved her and wanted her to become his wife.

     But the possibility of her feeding on flesh, killing more people, presented too much of a risk. He was pissed at this crazy epidemic—and pissed at himself for not being able to figure out what the hell was going on here in Twilight Cove.

     What he did know from recent experience was that people usually turned within hours of being infected.

     He glanced at his wristwatch, pulled in a deep breath, and swallowed against the growing thickness in his throat.

     Two hours. It had been approximately two short hours.

     Allowing her to become one of them just wasn’t going to happen in his lifetime. It was time for action.

     “Get dressed.” He snatched some clothes off the floor and tossed them at her.

     She blinked, looking more gorgeous and adorable than ever with her luscious mouth hanging open in stunned confusion. Desire stirred in his loins and damn near made him forget the seriousness of their situation, and the kneejerk reaction to dive into bed with her suddenly became the hardest thing he’d ever had to resist in his life.

     “But, Gabe, I wanted to—”

     “Wylee.”

     “What?” She lifted her chin in defiance and clutched the wad of clothes to her bare breasts.

     He groaned and jammed on his jeans, more to keep his cock in check than anything. “I said get dressed. Now.”

For centuries witches, shifters, vampires and the like have been living alongside humans in shadow and silence ...


     Feline shifter, Aleah Macleod, is excited to start work as a member of a supernatural research team—until she meets William Wolfe. The alpha shifter makes life on the team miserable for her, and she’s not sure why. As the pressure intensifies and the stakes increase, the only person she can turn to is Wyatt Masterson, a shifter she finds she has more in common with than she thought.

     In addition to being a highly sought-after researcher, Wyatt Masterson has the ability to shift into the rare crocodile alpha. He tries to focus on the research, but finds himself distracted by Aleah Macleod. Not only does his respect grow for the sexy shifter, but so does his attraction. When she asks for help against William Wolfe, he readily agrees, but he doesn’t realize it will have devastating consequences.


Elvira Bathory is a succubus who preys on the strongest of men. In her 36 years on this Earth, she has seen some of the most carnal acts of passion committed by man, some she has caused herself. Having spent so much time consuming the energy that came from other couples enjoying each other's company, she decided that it was time for her to enjoy someone's company on a more permanent basis. Traveling the world, she chose to settle in a small town in the state known as New Mexico. Still in search of that perfect man, she spends her nights inventing him from her mind onto the pages of her steamy erotic stories.

Hello! Thank you for this opportunity to talk about the Coming in Hot Boxed Set which includes my steamy short story Blood Bio-Med. I can’t wait to help my readers get to know me better!
 
Tell us about your title featured in this set:

Blood Bio-Med was a bit difficult for me to write as I had never written a medical piece before. But I had lots of help from the other authors in the set, answering any questions I had and all that jazz. The title was actually a fellow author’s idea as I was drawing a blank as to what this piece should be titled. That’s one of the amazing things about working in a box set with other authors. There is always someone there to help you if you need it. This piece actually took me a little longer than most of my work due to be slightly out of my comfort zone ;-)

Tell us something about yourself: 
I’m a 38 year old housewife with five kids and an amazingly patient and understanding husband. It is a bit difficult to write during the summer as all the kids are home but that would be where the amazingly patient and understanding hubby comes in (Where you are from, where you live now, note your degrees, significant relationships, as little or as much as you want).

Tell us about your writing process: 
I get most of my inspiration from pictures I have seen; though that is by no means the only way I get my inspiration. I LOVE to write about things that haven’t been written about much, if at all. My thing is shifters that turn into animals I have never even heard of until I do my research (and I do A LOT of research for any of my work). Sometimes I do research WHILE writing the piece depending on what the piece is about. This piece consisted of lots of research before and during the writing of it.

What is your favorite genre to read? 
I love all genres but I will always reach for the romance novels first.

What would you say is the one thing are you most passionate about? 
Ending cruelty to animals and children. I have been doing all that is in my power to do this.

When you are not writing, what do you like to do? 
Read, color (yup color lol), dance, sing, draw. Spend time with the hubby and kiddos. 

If someone who hasn’t read any your books asked you to describe your story in this set (the elevator pitch!) what would you say? 
This piece is about a young doctor, who happens to be a shifter, that has been trying to find out what makes supernatural beings different than human beings. She is very passionate about discovering this huge secret and when she is asked to become part of a medical team that is doing just that she couldn’t be more thrilled. She discovers romance along the way with another shifter on the team of six as well as strife. There is a huge love triangle with Aleah being in love with Wyatt while Wyatt is in love with her (the ultimate doctor couple) and a fellow team member, William, wanting Aleah all for herself.

Where can readers connect with you? 

Thank you so much for having me! It’s been a blast telling everyone about myself and Blood Bio-Med, my contribution to the Coming in Hot Boxed Set!

     The day after the phone call found Aleah in the waiting room of the fifth floor of New Hope Hospital anxiously waiting for Dr. Morgan to make an appearance and explain what it was he needed from her. She remembered taking a seat closest to the door she had entered and looking around the room, noticing there were four other people sitting in the room with her. Every one of them seemed to be feeling the same mix of emotions that she was: anxiety and nerves. Her palms were sweating as she watched two of the four people in the room fidget in their seats. A third person stood and began pacing the length of the small room, long strides eating up the carpet in his need to calm his nerves. The fourth person, a woman, was taking deep breaths as she slowly rocked with her eyes closed.

     They stood in unison, with the exception of the man who was already standing, as a six foot one, silver haired older man walked into the waiting room.

     The Director of Supernatural Bio-Medicine smiled at each of them in turn, “Hello fellow doctors. If you would just follow me, please.”

     He turned and led the way down a small hallway, stopping in front of one of the closed doors then ushering the five of them into one of the conference rooms and waited until they were all seated to begin what could only be called a presentation.

     Dr. Morgan began by telling them the reason they were called together then introduced them all by their specialties, “I’m glad to see that almost all of you were able to be here. There was to be one more of you, but it seems he’s not going to make it. Shall we get started?”

      Everyone nodded their agreement and waited to hear what the doctor was going to say next.

     “Without further ado, allow me to tell you why you’re here. I have hand-picked each of you for your specialties and your reputations in those specialties. As you may already know, this hospital has allowed for a new type of study to be conducted in honor of the paranormal being outed. That study is Supernatural Bio-Medicine and they have appointed me the Director. Now the reason you five have been called is so we can appease the humans, and to make sure that the supernaturals are receiving the proper care. In order to do that I have need of a team. Before I get into all of the details concerning that let me introduce each of you. It might make things a little clearer for all involved.”

     Dr. Morgan placed his hands on the conference table and leaned closer to the young doctors eager to be on his team, “Mr. Alfred Barstow here will be our Rheumatologist making sure that, should the need arise, we are able to help all paranormal beings with any joint, muscular and skeletal issues. He will also be helping aide in the study of these areas so that we can continue to learn everything we can about all paranormal beings and help the humans to understand that knowledge as well.”

     Aleah remembered her attention had been drawn from the doctor to a tall, dark skinned man with a crew cut and easy smile to her left as he stood and waved, “Hello everyone.”

     As Alfred returned to his seat Dr. Morgan turned his attention to a petite, light skinned woman with wavy blonde, shoulder length hair and a slightly upturned nose, “Ms. Deanna Bates came highly recommended for our Immunologist to aide us in helping those supernaturals with severe allergies. Of course we also need to study this area of medicine to discover how supernatural beings can have allergies, but that is a discussion for another time.”

     The woman in question had her turn of standing and addressing everyone in the room, “Happy to be here.”

     Dr. Morgan watched as Deanna returned to her seat then continued to introduce the final members in the room, “This is Mr. Wyatt Masterson and he will be our Endocrinologist helping us study the glands and hormones of all the supernatural community. We might be comparing these areas of the body with the humans to see what makes us so different from them.”

     There was a collective gasp that had the Director holding his hand up, “There’s no need for you to be alarmed as I assure you that there will be no white room with bright lights and no paranormals being tied down to a sterile table for these studies. No giant microscope watching your every move. This is merely a way to show the humans how safe we are, how they won’t ‘catch what we have’ and become supernatural themselves; that we are a unique case as stated six months ago.”

     The room let out a sigh of relief as a whole, and the man who had been introduced before the bombshell of studying their own had been dropped gave a slow blink. Aleah remembered how her attraction to him was almost instantaneous. She watched as he stood in one lithe movement and took in his appearance. He had milky white skin, shocking white shaggy hair and stunning pale blue eyes. Her heart began to race as his eyes met hers and he licked his lips, getting ready to speak.

     “Hi! Hey! Sorry I’m so late. Traffic was horrible!”

     A man in his late thirties came rushing into the room, interrupting the Endocrinologist and jerking Aleah’s attention to the door. His short sandy blonde hair was sticking up in all directions and his clothes were rumpled, giving her the impression that he had just rolled out of bed. His deep tan showed that he wasn’t afraid to be in the sun, but the way he moved through the room set Aleah’s teeth on edge. She’d never met someone that made her go on the defensive just by the way they looked but that was exactly how she had felt the minute her gaze fell upon him.

When adventurous and sexy becomes the most thrilling dare of all...







Full time nurse, amateur cake baker, writer, and zombie obsessed, Kathleen draws a lot from the real-life medical drama she experiences as a RN for her novels. Writing romance is a creative outlet where she can effectively deal with the daily stress and sorrow, adding levity and humor to situations that provide a happily ever after when there isn't one. 

A graduate of University of Nebraska Medical Center, Kathleen Grieve earned a Bachelors Degree in Science and Nursing in 1994. She has been a dedicated nurse for more years than she cares to count, serving most of those years in trauma, neurosurgical, cardiovascular and medical intensive care units. She recently discovered the wonderful world of Air Ambulance and works as a flight nurse on both a medical helicopter and fixed wing aircraft delivering emergency services whether it be on the side of the road at the scene of an accident or transferring a critical patient from one hospital to the next, this world has opened up all new possibilities for her writing.


She has a super sexy, hot free read available on AfterDark Online: It's titled Decadent Medicine

Hello! Thank you for this opportunity to talk about my new release Sex Is The Best Medicine and help my readers get to know me better. I appreciate you all being here.


Tell us about your title featured in this set:


Sex Is The Best Medicine started out as an idea I had for a free read. The more I wrote, the longer the story became and it outgrew the minimum word count. I’d tucked it away until I was contacted by a friend of mine inviting me to submit any medical romance story to this boxed set. Once I’d read over the submission guidelines I knew this would be the perfect fit for my novella. How’d I come up with the title? Driving along on my long commute to work stuff pops into my head all of the time and this title was one of those random things I find myself grabbing my phone and asking Suri to help me remember.

Tell us something about yourself.


I was born and raised in California, the Napa Valley to be more precise. I went away to college and graduated from University of Nebraska Medical Center in 1994 with my Bachelor’s degree in nursing. I have a lot of boring certifications that go along with my degree, more specifically my specialty of practice (intensive care and as a flight nurse) but I won’t bore you with all of that stuff. It’s a snoozer. I have four beautiful children and two adorable twin grandsons. Interestingly enough, three of my four kiddos are going into the health field. I will have two nurses and possibly a physician’s assistant. My youngest is like “Uh huh, Mom. There’s no way I’m going into healthcare. I can’t stand the sight of blood!” LOL. I currently reside in Arizona where I work as a helicopter and fixed wing flight nurse transporting critically ill patients from the scene of accidents on the side of a rural highway or from one hospital to another if the patient requires a higher level of care.

Tell us about your writing process.


I don’t really have a writing process. I write what I know—Medical— The details I use are accurate and true to life. I like to mix the heavy sad stuff into comedy where I can because some of the most ridiculous things happen at work and it is funny!!

What is your favourite genre to read?

This is a hard one for me. I love all genres fantasy, contemporary, historical, western… My youngest daughter who is as much of an avid reader as I am has me hooked on a few YA series.

What would you say is the one thing are you most passionate about?


My family. I love my children and grandchildren and I have the most AMAZING husband in the world.

When you are not writing, what do you like to do?


My husband and I love to take our Kayaks out on the lakes here in Arizona. The all year round sunshine guarantees we can go at any time and the breath taking desert vistas make me appreciate life all the more.

If someone who hasn’t read any your books and asked you to describe your story in this set (the elevator pitch!) what would you say?

Necessary Roughness Meets ER!!

Thank you for allowing me to participate today. This was fun!






Half way through the song, a coldly familiar voice barked, “What the hell do you think you’re doing?”

Kate's eyes snapped open and she nearly stumbled. She gasped and the pencil fell to the carpet. “Mr. Anderson!”

“I repeat. What in the hell do you think you’re doing?” He said crossing his arms over his broad chest.

Kate fought to control her scrambled thoughts through the sensual haze of the Latin beat that never failed to fire up her libido, but it was extremely difficult to accomplish with the fine male specimen who’d suddenly jumped out of the fantasy of her mind becoming reality.

“I…ah…um, well,” she began cursing herself for her innate curiosity. She cleared her throat. “I’m dancing,” she said lamely.

“I can see that,” he said rolling his eyes. “Why are you doing it here?”

“I’m so sorry,” she began. “I was just taking out my trash and saw your door open. I knocked and called out, but no one answered and… Well, obviously I came in and snooped... I wasn’t going to steal anything I was just curious and…” her voice trailed off. She smacked her forehead with the palm of her hand, embarrassment flaming her face. “God, I’ve got diarrhea of the mouth,” she said with a grimace.

He just stared at her an incredulous expression lit his face. Obviously his man of few words persona he’d displayed upon their first meeting wasn’t due to his visit to the emergency room. She straightened her shoulders and sighed. “I’m Kate by the way. Kate Sumner. We met last week in the ER.” She held out her hand and gave him a sheepish smile. “You’re obsessive compulsive busy body neighbor.
