Hi everyone! I’m Amy and I’m really excited to be at Literary Lagniappe talking about my debut release from Harlequin Medicals, Safe in His Hands which just released at the beginning of September.
I entered this story into a Medical Fast Track in 2010. Well, I only entered the synopsis and one chapter. It was a lot of revisions and requests and WAITING. It finally sold in January 2013 and I was over the moon excited.
When I write I have to listen to music. It’s just a given in, I have to have that background in my head to hear myself clearly. I know that doesn’t make sense, but that’s how I operate. It’s worked for me since 2007. 😉
Anyways, through all those revisions of the medical (which was originally titled City Surgeon, Wilderness Doctor …I know, craptacular title) I listened to one soundtrack. Adele’s album 21 in particular the songs Someone Like You and Set Fire to the Rain.
Safe in His Hands is a lover’s reunited theme. I believe there can be a second chance at love, if the people are willing to work together and make it happen.
People are fallible and make mistakes, so what if you could change the worst mistake of your life and make it right?
At least the hopeless romantic in me believes this.
Dare she place her heart in his care?
Dr. Charlotte James will do anything to save her best friend’s unborn baby—even turn to her ex-fiancé, Dr. Quinn Devlyn! Their relationship ended badly after the loss of their own little miracle, and while Charlotte trusts the hotshot neonatal surgeon’s amazing ability, she doesn’t trust the man who buries his emotions in work….
A career-threatening injury has left Quinn at a crossroads in his life. But, working with Charlotte again in the snowbound beauty of her isolated community practice, he realizes he’s been given a second chance to prove that both the baby and Charlotte’s fragile heart will be safe in his hands….
