Thank you to Anna Bowling of Buried Under Romance for mentioning me in her post this Saturday, The Appeal of Medical Romance:

The Mammoth Book of ER Romance hits readers hard and fast with an abundance of tales where time is of the essence in love as well as medical care, and no wonder that it’s a winning combination. Stakes are never higher than when a loved one’s life is on the line, and there’s an immediate trust a patient and their family must put in the doctors, nurses, paramedics and technicians whose job it is to keep the grim reaper away and remain calm while doing so.

There is a commonality in the medical world; we are, after all, all the same beneath the skin, and anyone who’s been in a major hospital, even to walk through the halls, will know that the medical world is diverse. Readers looking for characters from different walks of life may well want to give medical romance a try. Alina Adams, herself a Soviet immigrant, infuses her Jewish Russian-American heroine and Russian hero with some of her own heritage. Dyann Davis gets real with the romance between African American nurse, Heaven, who is Christian and Pakistani physician, Hamid, who is Muslim, in Let’s Get It On.
