REVIEW COMMENTS  

Goodreads… Gwessie Tee’s Reviews: Reunited With Her Army Doc (Five Stars): It was amazing. Utterly fantastic read, definitely love this book and looking forward to reading the next one too. I won't give spoilers what I will say is that this awesome read has everything you can want as well as a little mystery, I utterly adore this story and the characters and glad there will be more.

Saved by Doctor Dreamy by Dianne Drake: What an enjoyable, fast-paced read Ms. Drake has penned in this story about a heroine wanting to become more independent, a hero running from his past and where the plot kept me entertained from start to finish due to the medical challenges these two face, their back stories and their growing relationship...Overall, Ms. Drake has penned a really good read in this book where the chemistry was wonderful, the main characters illustrate really well that opposites do attract, and the ending was gratifying.”

The Nurse and the Single Dad By Dianne Drake: This was my first time reading a “Harlequin Medical Romance”, which I really enjoyed, given my years of working in healthcare and hospitals specifically. I will definitely look for others...” ~ Sara @HarlequinJunkie

“As always Dianne never fails to deliver and prove without a shadow of doubt there is hope after tragedy, even if you are not looking for it, and love is always the best medicine, thank you for a truly touching story.” ~ Gwessie Tee

What a sweet romance...I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading more of Ms. Drakes’ work.

I recently discovered her, and enjoy her tremendously.
- Found on Smart Bitches Trashy Books

For a medical romance this story has more than enough action and drama to hold anyone’s interest, and the romance is only a small portion of its appeal.

Reviewed on the Mills & Boon website:

Firefighter With A Frozen Heart - An excellent story written with emotional depth and understanding.

Engrossing and probably Mrs Drake's best yet.
- Ten out of ten

P.S. You’re a Daddy: This is a story of the love for a sister and family. Funny and loving, laughed, cried and waited for the happy ever after. Good read!

 A Child to Heal Their Hearts: “To be honest a book set in a holiday camp for recovering sick children didn't sound an appealing subject and I'm also not particularly keen when children form a large part of the plot. However Mrs Drake has written so compellingly about this that I was able to forget my prejudices. Reid is an engaging and dedicated hero while enigmatic at first, Keera's emotions were portrayed realistically and sympathetically. There were unexpected turns in the plot and I ended up thoroughly enjoying this book. Nine out of ten"

Can you believe it’s 2018 already? It seems like yesterday we were all anticipating the turning of a new century. I remember my grandmother talking about the turning of a century, as well. Only, her century was 1900. What’s amazing to me is that my grandmothers, my mother and I have spanned three different centuries. That’s a lot of years on this earth.

For me what’s interesting are the stories I’ve heard about life during the various decades of the women in my life. One grandmother was a Suffragette. She marched, she picketed, and she was a firm believer that women had the right to do anything they wanted. When she won the right to vote in a national election, in 1920, she never missed voting until her death in 1982. My other grandmother had the most amazing stories of going on vacation in the early 1900s, in a covered wagon. Her family would travel from Arkansas to Oklahoma, which wasn’t yet a state, and be flanked by Native Americans as they traveled. That’s some really fascinating Wild West History, and my grandmother was in the middle of it. Then there was my mother, who was involved in the effort to make munitions during World War II. She was just a girl, still in high school, but every day, after school, she’d report to the munitions factory to do her part for the war effort.

I come from some strong women, which is why I like to write strong women in my books. I saw that strength reflected in my own life and that was my influence. There was never a time when I ever thought of women as being the weaker sex, or that they weren’t qualified or capable of doing whatever they wanted, and that is what I love to portray in my books. It’s what I’ve always loved to read, as well. Some of my favorite strong women in literature: Elizabeth Darcy (Pride and Prejudice); Anna Karenina (Anna Karenina); Jane Eyre (Jane Eyre); Jo March (Little Women); Hester Prynne (The Scarlet Letter); Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables);Tess Durbeyfield (Tess of the d'Urbervilles); Nancy Drew (Nancy Drew series); Scout Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird); Miss Havisham (Great Expectations); Scarlett O’Hara (Gone with the Wind); Elnora Comstock (The Girl of the Limberlost).

Reading these books, with these wonderful characters, was one of the main reasons I wanted to write. They showed me things I’d never see on my own, took me places I could only dream of and, most of all, they opened up for me a quality of character and passion I didn’t know existed. Add those qualities to the qualities I saw in the romantic heroines I discovered when I started reading romance novels (Yes, Harlequin and Mills and Boon) and that’s where my dream began. I took some detours to get there, including being a professional musician for a while, then a critical care nurse, then a journalist, but the day I saw my first romance novel published, I knew I was where I was supposed to be…writing those strong women I’d always loved.

If you haven’t read a romance novel in a while—romance in any of its many manifestations—now’s a great time to come back. Or, to start, if you’ve never read one. Invest a few hours, be surprised, walk away with a good feeling. And please, take a look at my books while you’re investing those hours. If you like medicine and drama mixed into your romance, I’ll do my best to come up with some blood pressure spikes, a few galloping heartbeats and a happily-ever-after that won’t disappoint.

Wishing you health & happiness.
