About the Author

After developing my creative skills and raising two children, they had the audacity to grow up. Bursting with enthusiasm and with no one to shower it on, I discovered fiction writing. The story of my heart came kicking and screaming out of my head in 2000. I had a choice to either write it down or go loopy. I think a little of both happened, because in 2001 I entered the world of romance writing, and what an intriguing journey it has been. Through writer's groups, national and local conferences, and extension courses to hone my craft, I've discovered the most wonderful group of supportive people, and first class friends. I consider it a blessing.

I think my husband thought I was having an on-line affair when I first started spending hours and hours before my computer, typing away. But when he realized that I was pursuing my dream of writing a romance novel, he offered his support. So of course, he was the first one to know when I got "the call" from across the pond on November 8th 2005 at 7:30 a.m. Harlequin Mills&Boon wanted to buy one of my books!

As a registered nurse for over twenty years, it made sense to write medical romance. I love to write about the world of medicine, and the potential for finding love amidst hospital drama, stress, and sometimes grief. My other passion is writing Lady Lit. (I simply love to read about older heroines, you know, the ones closer to my age.)

When I'm not writing or working three days a week as a Registered Nurse, I love to read, take day trips with my hubby, or better yet, vacation. I also like to see movies and eat out-Italian and Mexican restaurants are my favorites. For exercise, I take power walks with my Rhodesian Ridgeback, Rogan. I find brisk walking helps stimulate my imagination, and I've often solved writing dilemmas or come up with new ideas for books while walking my dog. Sometimes I think he's my muse.

I can't tell you how happy I am to be a part of the great big genre of romance literature. In a world that oftentimes gives us little encouragement, romance stories always end with hope. And as I've learned throughout my life, hope is the candle that guides us through the long and lonely nights.

His Pregnant Sleeping Beauty by Lynne Marshall’s is book six in The Hollywood Hills Clinic series. I loved Joseph and Carey from the opening scenes. Joseph is fearless as he takes on Carey’s attackers. He doesn’t know Carey from Adam but he becomes her protector and I absolutely loved that characteristic from the start. Carey is apprehensive and doesn’t want to rely on him as she settles into her new life. Can they overcome their pasts for a chance at a happily ever after? Lynne Marshall has a way that draws the readers into her emotionally charged books. She never disappoints. I highly recommend His Pregnant Sleeping Beauty. I’d like to disclose that I received a copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Author Lynne Marshall has once again created two memorable characters: a paramedic hero who has suffered the worst betrayal and a young unwed mother who has been abused both physically and emotionally by her baby's father. Nurse Carey Spencer runs away from her abusive lover when he offers her the money to abort their baby and soon becomes a victim again when she is mugged. Paramedic Joseph Matthews rescues her and then becomes her protector when he discovers that this beautiful woman who has been left in a coma is also pregnant. He stays by her side as she recovers and then continues to offer support even though her pregnancy reminds him of his ex-wife's betrayal and revives the hurt of learning he will never father his own child. Carey is immediately drawn to this amazing hero but Joseph is very hesitant to let her into his heart. This is a sweet story that allows us to witness the growth of trust and love between two people who have experienced deep hurts. 'His Pregnant Sleeping Beauty' gives us a glimpse of past hurts and betrayals; the reality of abusive relationships; the fear of allowing yourself to trust again and the glimmer of hope that true love is always attainable. This a book that you will remember! I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Emotionally stirring, sensually mesmerizing and beautifully written, His Pregnant Sleeping Beauty by Lynne Marshall will keep you engrossed until the end. This is a story that will pull at your heartstrings. The tension between Joseph Joe Matthews and Carey Spencer is evident on the page as their past haunts their present day life. They recreate their past pain every chance they get. I cannot give away much of the plot without baring the essence of this intensely consuming story. But I will say this: would you be willing to put your trust in a stranger if you’ve been abused and been hurt by loved ones in your past? Keep this question in mind if you think about giving this story a try. Because, this is what His Pregnant Sleeping Beauty is about—putting yourself out there even though you want to hide away in your shell. Highly Recommended 5 Stars

Sometimes, it so happens that when a person is not made for you, things will go wrong. However you may want them to be otherwise. The same is true for Joseph and Carey. Joseph married a woman but she was not the one meant for him. Carey was having a baby with a man but he was not the one meant for her. Meeting in strenuous conditions, Joseph's could not help but feel responsible for Carey and her baby and she starts depending on him to be there for her and the baby. A very sweet story where even thought the hero wants to be all macho and always be there to save his woman, he makes sure that she knows self-defense because that is how life is. He can't be always there. A book that I will be picking up again. Soon.

His Pregnant Sleeping Beauty by Lynne Marshall Paramedic Joseph Matthews is at the right spot at the right time. He notices a woman that has just gotten off the bus being attacked for her bag and something possibly worse. Joseph goes to rescue her and gets slices in the process by her would be assailant. He does not manage to stop the theft of her bag but he does rescue the female. Joseph is a divorced man and he has bitterness thanks to his memories. However he vows to be there for the female who has now been left in a coma. Carey Spencer has her own story to tell and she was for sure in the wrong place at the wrong time. She is pregnant and running away from the baby’s father and now has no identity other than Jane Doe and Joseph calls her the Sleeping Beauty. When she came to she immediately asked if her baby was okay and when she got the word that yes the baby was fine she had tears in her eyes and also so did Joseph. Lynne Marshall is a wonderful author who can capture you from the start of the book and right up until the last word is written. This showed there are bad people and good people; there are people that should never be a dad and some that should be. It is a wonderful story and deserves more than 5 stars.

Lynne Marshall has done it again! His Pregnant Sleeping Beauty is another winner. It is part of The Hollywood Hills Clinic series. The book revolves around Joe the paramedic and Carey, a pregnant patient he rescues at the begining of the book. Of course the are the usual twists and turns along the way. But will Joe win Carey's heart in the end?

Lynne Marshall has a way with words that wraps you up in the life of her characters and takes you along for the ride with them as they travel the ups and downs of life and happily ever after! Carey Spencer finds herself vulnerable, pregnant and alone in the beginning of this story, and almost immediately walks right into danger! Paramedic Joseph Matthews is at the right place at the right time to come to Carey's aid and get her medical treatment as soon as possible. He sits by her bedside just waiting for this beautiful woman to open her eyes and tell him she's okay. Though his life has been in an upheaval due to his ex-wife's betrayal, he's not the type of man that can turn his back on a woman in need, so he offers Carey all the help she needs to get settled back on her feet after she wakes up. Neither Carey nor Joe can ignore the attraction they feel for each other. They try to fight it, but it just won't go away. Can this wayward woman be the answer to healing Joe's heart? And will this good-hearted paramedic show Carey that there are men out there that you can truly trust?
