So it seems if you’re in this biz long enough and have built up enough of a backlist sooner or later they’ll start to get re-issued (especially now digital is king!) as “classics”. I’m not sure if that means they’re ageless or I’m just getting old but, anyway, it’s happening with some of my medical titles next week and I thought I’d tell you a little about them.

The Outback Doctor’s Surprise Bride.

TODBSThis is my wind-in-his-hair, foot-loose-and-fancy-free, motorbike doc – delicious!

Blurb – Locum doctor James Remington never stays in one place for long. But the warmth of the people in this welcoming Outback community is starting to make it feel like home—and so is nurse Helen Franklin. James has found it easy to win over the locals in Skye, but Helen proves to be much more of a challenge.
Helen’s protected her heart for so long that she doesn’t know if she’s ready to open it up to this charming but temporary doctor. All James knows is that Helen makes him want something he’s never wanted before—a home and family. Buy Link: Amazon

An Unexpected Proposal. 

AUP

Featuring a buttoned-up GP and a laid-back naturopath this clash of traditional vs modern medicine is epic!

Blurb – GP Madeline Harrington makes it very clear to her new neighbour, Dr. Marcus Hunt, that she doesn’t like his approach to medicine, doesn’t like his laid-back attitude—doesn’t like him!
But as Marcus’s healing touch gradually wins her over, Madeline realizes that she might have misjudged this very brilliant, very gorgeous doctor.
Passion soon deepens into love. But when Marcus’s ex-wife turns up with an earth-shattering revelation, Marcus faces the greatest challenge of all—gaining Madeline’s trust, and convincing her to become his bride.

The Surgeon’s Meant-To-Be Bride. 

TSMTBBThis is perhaps my fav of the three and was, for a long time, my fav of all my books. The entire book takes place over the course of one day – every chapter represents an hour – as the clock counts down on the last 24 hours of a medical aid tour and possibly the end of a marriage. Set in war-torn Africa it’s a confronting and emotional read (even if I do say so myself!).

Blurb – Nurse Harriet Remy and her surgeon husband, Guillaume, thought they had the perfect marriage. They loved working for an overseas medical-aid service and children were never part of their plan—until Harriet’s fertility came under threat and her subsequent desire for a baby came between them.
After a year apart, they’re together on their final assignment. Gill still adores his wife and for him the assignment becomes more than work, it becomes a mission to save his marriage.

And this time he’s prepared to do whatever it takes to keep his bride by his side—forever.

I was really hoping they might have sparkly new covers but alas, it appears that won’t be the case. Their release date is March 15th.

I also have two classic medical novellas that have been out as e-books for a while now but, as they have butt-ugly, non-covers, they haven’t gained anyone’s attention which is a shame cos both of them hold a special place in my heart.

In The Billionaire Claims His Wife I take a mega rich, supremely arrogant, hot-doc, strike him down with the flu-from-hell and put him (buck naked) at the mercy of his ex-wife. Buy: Amazon and in Their Baby Bond the emotional issue of surrogacy and is explored. Buy: Amazon

I hope you’ll give these “classics” a try!

    I couldn’t tell you since I’ve been reading romances for about 4-5 years and I don’t believe none is older than 2000. And how old is older ?

  2. denise

    I used to read my mom’s all the time, so they always seem “familiar” and “homey.”

  3. marcyshuler

    As long as I know it’s a “classic” title when I buy it I’m fine with the old-fashioned feel to the story. That’s part of what makes it interesting.

  4. Cari White

    I like to read classic romances… They remind of those days…. Pre-internet, pre- cell phones, pre-computers…. They used typewriters!

  5. DJ Sakata

    I am bored by the regency and classical style, I like contemporary and independent women, and little spice in the romance

  6. Kai W.

    I do read classic romance. They are the kind of romance that woo the heroine and give me that nice fuzzy feeling inside.

  7. Amy Andrews

    Thanks everyone for the great comments.

    I think they’re only calling them “classics” so people know they’re re-releases. They’re all only about 6 -8 years old so I doubt you’ll find too much that’s old-fashioned in them 🙂

  8. Teresa Williams

    I love to read the classics mainly because I really don’t need to read and reread the erotica, and they seem to make the fantasy escape more real, by being in a simpler, more pure place in time.

  9. Diana Huffer

    The classic romances are OK once in a while — a nice break from the other genres I read, i.e., paranormal, sci-fi, horror, etc.

  10. BARBARA S

    as love as the story flows good, is logical and not all over the place, and has a HEA, I am good!!

  11. Christine L.

    I do like to mix up my genres and don’t mind re-releases from within the past decade (in other words, contemporaries that were published recently enough that they won’t seem dated).
