I am thrilled to share the first review of The Nurse's Not-So-Secret Scandal, available on the Mills and Boon website (under medical romance) as of March 1st. On store shelves in the UK and Aus/NZ in April. The review is up on Goodreads, but you can read it here:

Marcus, Wendy – The Nurse’s Not So Secret Scandal, M&B APR12 ****
This is one hot book and it is sure to please the readers that enjoy hot, spicy reads and a ripping fast pace. Marcus is an author that takes on challenges. She has created a heroine with a troubled childhood—her heroine’s back-story includes a troubling past. This subject is dark enough it could be a turn-off to some readers, however she mixes in a resilient young woman that has learned to live life to its fullest. Her hero has a different but still troubling back-story, but she has created another survivor in him. The sparks start flying from the first time they meet.
Marcus creates an impossible to set down story with compelling characters, who are sometimes hard to like and yet I found myself in equal parts cheering for them and wanting to smack them upside the head. If you prefer sweet reads you will not find it between the covers of her book. But if you want something truly different from most of the HM&B medicals, this is the book for you. Marcus is one of the few gifted authors who use humor in the writing. Not everyone can pull off the funny, snarky tone she can use to great effect—especially when the subject matter needs something to lighten up what could otherwise be a dark subject. This is a book I could not put down--in fact, I read way too late in order to finish the story before bed. Well done.
From the back cover: Between family nightmares and a series of lousy guys, nurse Roxie Morano’s life is like a disaster zone. But enigmatic (and gorgeous) new colleague Ryan “Fig” Figelstein is ignoring her hazard warnings – instead, he’s signaling his attraction! Now Roxie’s bulletproof heart is at risk...but dare she dream Fig will stick around when he discovers all her secrets?
