Book #4 in Harley Street series

London Eye At Night


Glamour, intensity, desire—the lives and loves of London’s hottest team of surgeons!



American Surgeon in London by Lynne Marshall

I can’t help being biased about this book, since I wrote it.  I was blessed with a great story in the Mills & Boon continuity bible, and immediately fell in love with both Mitchell and Grace.  In case you’re wondering why I’ve posted a picture of the London Eye, let’s just say because it plays a significant role in this book.

Here’s a picture of what the characters looked like in the continuity notes and in my imagination.

They’re a bit different from the book cover, aren’t they?





To paraphrase Forrest Gump’s comment about chocolate, but ascribing it to the publisher’s art department – you just never know what you’re going to get.


Don’t get me wrong, though, I love this book cover.  It paints the perfect story for Mitchell and Grace’s romance.  Here’s the back cover blurb:

Daring to live again…?

Plastic surgeon Mitchell Cooper used to have it all.  But when his life collapsed, he and his little daughter Mia moved to London to rebuild their lives – and Mitchell sealed off his damaged heart. Yet after one star-studded night with fellow surgeon Grace Turner, Mitchell finds himself daring to live again! Only Grace is hiding painful secrets of her own…

Harley Street author boiler room exclusive:

I don’t know what I would have done without the tremendous help of Londoner author Annie Claydon of book # six- The Enigmatic Surgeon due out June 1st.  Anytime I had a question about London, she was first to step up with directions or suggestions.  Whether it be a U.S. diner styled restaurant that served waffles, or a playground within walking distance from the London Eye.  Boom, Annie sent along maps and pictures and helped me feel like I was actually there in London, again.  I also needed an upscale bar within a ten minute stroll from the Eye, and Annie sent a link to a new bar in the Royal Festival Hall called the Skylon Bar.  Though I never mentioned that bar by name, I refer to a new bar with a 1950s look and feel where Mitchell and Grace share a drink and a light supper.  I believe we call the retro 1950s style Mid Century Modern in the U.S.  Annie’s incredibly helpful e-mails helped make my book feel authentic.  For someone who hadn’t visited London since 2005, this was hugely appreciated.  Thank you, Annie!

  1. Hi Lynne, it was such a privilege to work with you and the other authors on the 200 Harley Street continuity, and such fun to see some of the places in my home town through your eyes! I just love your cover, and yes, it paints a wonderful portrait of Grace and Mitchell – (the umbrella’s a nice touch for this rainy Easter Sunday 🙂 ).

    • Annie! I’m so glad you discovered this blog. I look forward to spotlighting your book next month after I do Kate Hardy’s. Love your book cover, BTW.

      Ditto on the privilege to work with you.

    I love that cover, and the closeness and protection of the umbrella is fabulous. I’m looking forward to reading this story!

  3. Robena – as soon as I get the US copies (which seems to be extra hard this time around) I will give you one. 🙂

    I worked on this book at your house last June when we had the writing retreat, remember?
