Will a fake relationship turn into a forever romance? Find out in Juliette Hyland’s latest Harlequin Medical Romance, the first story in the Neonatal Nurses duet!
A picture is worth a thousand words…What about a viral video?
When Dr. Benedict saves an infant on the Washington Metro, the treatment he performs with nurse Penny becomes the talk of the town—and social media! Not least because the world thinks they’re a couple… While a real relationship is a no-go zone for divorced Benedict, prolonging their “faux-mance” is the perfect way to raise vital hospital funds. But the longer their ruse goes on, the more real it feels!

Book 1: A Nurse to Claim His Heart by Juliette Hyland
Book 2: Neonatal Doc on Her Doorstep by Scarlet Wilson
A Nurse to Claim his Heart is an uplifting and intense medical romance that I really enjoyed. I love that this is set in a Neo-Natal ICU, and the love these characters have for these fragile infants is inspiring.
Dr. Benedict is an attending physician in the level four neonatal intensive care unit at Wald Children’s hospital. Besides his very busy work as a physician, Dr. Benedict is working hard at raising money for a high-risk maternity unit at the hospital. He’s not interested in relationships and just wants to fund the life-saving medical unit.
Penny is a neonatal nurse who works in the same NICU unit as Dr. Benedict. She works there with her twin sister, Alice. Penny left Wald Children’s Hospital three years ago to move to Ohio with her fiance. But she returned a year ago, minus the engagement ring.
When Benedict and Penny save a child on the subway, the video goes viral. Benedict decides to use the video to help raise funds for the hospital, but everyone thinks he and Penny are a couple because of how well they worked together to save the baby. So, he decides to ask Penny to be his fake girlfriend just long enough to use their fame to raise funds for the new hospital unit. But, will their fake relationship lead to real feelings?
I sure enjoyed this fast-paced medical romance. Both Penny and Benedict are hard-working medical professionals, who bond over their shared love of saving these tiny babies. They both have good reasons to not get involved, and yet, they can’t help their feelings for each other. I also enjoyed all the medical information in the story. And how babies are saved in the NICU, and what it’s like to work there.

Very nice review, Wendy!
Ooh, you made this book sound good!
I have a young relative whose life was saved by the NICU. I will be forever grateful to those nurses, doctors, and other medical professionals who made it possible for him to go home to his family and have such a great chance at living to adulthood.
It’s also cool to see an interracial couple in a story that doesn’t sound like it’s going to make a big deal of that at all. That’s a very refreshing change from how some romance novels used to approach such things.
I’m so happy for your young relative. The book talks about how many more babies are saved these days compared to the past. Yes the interracial couple was good to see, and they didn’t make a big deal of it at all.
This sounds good & different to any romances I have read before 💕
Thank you, Jenny. It was pretty good. I’m enjoying all the medical information too.
I don’t think I ever read a medical romance. Great review!
I don’t read many, but I enjoy the medical information.
This sounds like a lovely story! And a good premise for a fake-relationship trope! Wonderful review, Wendy!
Thank you, Jolene! It was a good one.
This sounds like such a sweet read! I’m happy it was a fast-paced romance with great characters and medical information, especially in that setting. Thank you for sharing your lovely review!
Thank you! It was very good!
I don’t think I’ve ever ventured into a medical romance. With the NICU setting, it should be good!
Thank you, Linda. It was very good, and the author was very careful about a compassionate view of the NICU.
Fabulous review Wendy! Glad you enjoyed!🤩💞📚
Thank you, Kaceey!
I like the sound of this book, Wendy. I’m sure working in a NICU is heartbreaking, but this sounds uplifting. Excellent review, Wendy.
Thank you, Carla. It seems like they save so many more babies than they lose, so it was very uplifting
This sounds so heartwarming. Excellent review!
Thank you, Tessa. It is very heartwarming.
This sounds sweet and cute and hard if any of the fragile newborns die. 🙁
Thank you, Jenni! No newborn deaths in this book!
This sounds like a charming read Wendy. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, Jodie. Charming is a great word for this book!
Yes, this was better than I expected. Glad to see you enjoyed it too.

Seems like there could be some upsetting scenes, but the story sounds good. I enjoyed your review.
