Janice Lynn Readers Group

Okay, it has been brought to my attention that my Readers group isn't working correctly. I actually had problems with it when my website was redone that has since been corrected. What I didnt' realize was ALL my emails have been bouncing. Duh! I feel like such a ditz--no comment from my friends, please. So, I'm working on this trying to see what the problem is. I *think* it's where we moved last year and lots of my info--mainly my internet provider--changed. Anyway, I want to issue a huge apology to all who have tried adding to my readers group and gotten NO response. The emails were bouncing and very simply I never got them...I guess I just thought I was unloved. :( Or was so busy I didn't notice. Oops.

The problem is being worked on and once done I am going to do several give-aways so stick around please! :)

The Heart Surgeon's Secret Son-released today!

I'm so excited!! My second Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical comes out today in the US!!! Woo hoo!!!!!! The easiest place to purchase your copy is at under the Harlequin Medical section. Here's the info!!

I enjoyed writing my first Medical, but I've always loved the hero in The Heart Surgeon's Secret Son soooo much. Be sure to let me know what you think of Daniel. :)

The Heart Surgeon's Secret Son
by Janice Lynn

She had to tell him her secret…

Nurse Kimberly Brookes has postponed her week-long training session with leading heart surgeon Daniel Travis once already. Even though she feels like running for the hills, she can't put it off any longer—she has to go into Theatre and face the man she once loved with all her heart…

Daniel is now even sexier than he was all those years ago—success, confidence and maturity have made him irresistible. But, as the week wears on, Kimberly feels the pressure of her renewed feelings for Daniel and of her untold secret—he is the father of her son…
