Please welcome author Robin Gianna as she answers some questions and she has giveaways!
After completing a
degree in journalism, working in the advertising industry, then becoming a
stay-at-home mom, Robin Gianna had what she likes to call her ‘awakening’.
While on vacation, lying in the sun with a beach read, she realized she wanted
to write the romance novels she'd loved since her teens.
Robin loves pushing
her characters toward their own happily-ever-afters! When she's not writing,
Robin's life is filled with a happily messy kitchen, a needy garden, a
wonderful husband, three great kids, a drooling bulldog and one grouchy Siamese
Please tell us in one sentence why we should read your book
Dr. Off-Limits is built on two romance tropes I think are fun—friends to lovers
and teacher/student, and if you enjoy medical romance, I believe you’ll find
that part of the book interesting and enjoyable as well.
What was your favorite scene to write?
enjoyed weaving together the medical mystery involving one patient in the
book.It was fun to learn about
metabolic acidosis and its mnemonic MUDPILES, and have the heroine ultimately
figure out the patient’s problem, showing her increasing confidence as a new
doctor as the story unfolds.
What is your dream cast for the book?
Ah, this is a
hard question!I think Ryan Reynolds
would be awesome as surgeon Alec Armstrong and I can easily see Emma Stone
doing a wonderful job playing Katy.
What are you working on now?
My current work
in progress that’s nearing ‘The End’ is a book I’ve set near Delphi,
Greece.It features an archaeologist
heroine and doctor hero. The heroine is
determined to honor her late parents by finishing the archaeological dig they
began before their deaths on Mt. Parnassus.But that becomes a challenge when a mysterious illness strikes several
members of the team. The hero wants her to play it safe by shutting down the
dig until they figure out why some people are getting sick, and isn’t at all
happy that the heroine is being obstinate about that!
Tell us a little about your book...
I set this book
in San Diego, which is a place I love to visit.I’d planned on more beach/water scenes because it’s so much a part of
the place, but ran out of space to put in much of ithat!I enjoyed learning about a number of things
in the process of writing the medical scenes, and hope readers find them as
interesting as I did.As for the story,
I honestly think the blurb sums it up nicely!
Flirting with the forbidden...
For intern Dr. Katy Pappas, seeing delectable surgeon Alec
Armstrong again is sweet torture! He might have rejected her after their sinfully
delicious kiss years before, but he still sets her pulse racing!
Alec is captivated by gorgeous, grown-up Katy. But as his best
friend’s sister, a colleague and his student, Katy is definitely off-limits!
He’s made the mistake of mixing business with pleasure before, and he won’t
risk Katy’s career. Yet can he resist the oh-so-wrong when it feels
