Who do you like to read?  

Susan Elizabeth Philips & Lynne Marshall
There's no secret that I love to read Susan Elizabeth Phillips for contemporary romance, because she blends humor and emotion so beautifully with her stories and characters.  I also like to read Linda Howard for Romantic Suspense, Nora Roberts for just about anything she endeavors to write, Jodi Thomas for Sweet Texas tales, and LaVyrle Spencer for classic U.S. historical romance. For a change from romance, I thoroughly enjoy reading Louise Penny novels. She is a Canadian who writes literary Suspense.





What’s your favorite place to read?  

I have a special chair in my living room where I sit each morning with a cup of coffee, and with Milo on my lap while I read.  In the evenings, I find myself returning to that chair for another hour or two, if the book is particularly good.  


What are some of your reading pet peeves? 

I am always hesitant to answer this kind of question, since I might get called on the carpet for the exact same reason from some unhappy reader down the line. However, since you asked, I am not a huge fan of arrogant alpha male heroes.  The strong silent type only goes so far before I say, lady, just walk away.  I am also not a fan of heroes who talk dirty to heroines right off, like the only thing in the world they're looking for is a bedmate.  That is so not my kind of hero. At. All.


Tell us a little about your book...

HER BABY, HIS LOVE, is a very different story from my usual books. In this story, I explore a redemptive hero, who has really changed his life, and put him together with a lost young lady who hasn't figured out what is best for herself yet.  She judges him unfairly for a mistake in his past, and he figures--once she discovers the consequences of her most recent romance and tells Joe the truth--Taylor isn't the right girl for him.  The problem is they can't forget each other, just because their circumstances  aren't convenient. 
I loved writing this story where friendship leads the way to romance, and the hero provides the true love that the heroine deserves for her and her future baby.  This story probably should have been a bigger book (the way I originally wrote it) but I am happy to share this story as a total change from my usual books, by reaching out to new readers and hopefully hanging on to my core readers at the same time. Fingers crossed!

  2. Congrtulations Lynne. It seems you have found what you are 'meant' to do. And I so agree with you about arrogant alphas. Walk away. Quickly.

    1. Hi Elephant's Child! When I look back over my life the signs of being a writer were there, but I ignored them...until I couldn't any more.

      I see we've already bonded on the arrogant dudes. :)

    1. They walk a fine line, and many writers do a fabulous job of it. Jane Porter being one. She knows her alphas

  5. That chair looks so comfy I could happily sink into right now.

    I absolutely agree about heroes who start right in on the bedroom talk, instant turn off as far as I’m concerned.

    I really enjoyed this spotlight spot thank you Nas and Lynne

    1. Hi Barbara! So happy you dropped by, and the only thing I need for my favorite reading chair is an ottoman, but then they'd never get me out of that chair!

  6. Sounds like a wonderful book, Lynne. And I love your reading chair. What a great idea to show that picture.

  7. Hi Jacqui - Thanks for reading the blog. When Nas sent the questions, I thought it only made sense to show the chair, and if you zoom in, I put a pile of favorite author books on the cushion. ;)

  8. Lynne, it sounds to me like you've enjoyed the best of two worlds... medicine and writing. I'm glad you were able to transition so successfully from one terrific career into another. I have a feeling your medical romances might ring a little more "true" than some I've read, which definitely makes me want to read them.

    Your new book sounds good, too. "Different" is good, and being willing to expand outside your usual writing comfort zone is even better. :) Good luck with it!

  9. Hi Susan!
    thank you for reading the blog. I do feel blessed to have had two careers, both being challenging and requiring personal growth.
    The comfort zone this time is a bit in reverse. I've always written romance at the sensual level, and with this book I close the door. I'm ready to write at a lower heat level! lol

    1. Sandra - thank you for reading the blog. I'd never planned on having two careers, the writing one was pure icing on the cake, as we say.

  16. 24 novels is quite a lot of novels to have under your belt! And being able to combine romance and medicine is not always easy. She should feel so proud!
