Here's the next “authors with heart” spotlight and prize pack from our 2016 project! I'm still catching up with a few authors from last year. In these features, you get to hear about a book and have a chance to win a prize! Each featured author helped with the 2017 Mother's Day thermal bags that were donated to two Washington state Fisher Houses—VA Puget Sound Healthcare System in Seattle and Madigan Army Medical Center at JBLM.

The talented Scarlet Wilson is in the spotlight this week with her book THE DOCTOR'S SECRET BABY! In case you don't know, Scarlet writes for Harlequin and Tule, as I do, and also Entangled. Here's what a reviewer had to say about her story:

“I am not a fan of medical dramas but Ms. Wilson changed my viewpoint with this honest and adorable story. It's hard not to fall for a sexy pilot with something to prove. Along the way I learned something from him. Don't judge, live life to the fullest and surprises are around every corner. Not only did he and Corrine learn from each other, they doled out great advice in an unforgettable way. Scarlet Wilson made me like a medical romance, not an easy feat.” —Amazon reviewer

Here's the blurb for THE DOCTOR'S SECRET BABY:

Expecting the astronaut’s baby!

Dr. Corrine Carter’s job as medical adviser heats up when daredevil Austin Mitchell joins the astronaut training programme. And it’s soon clear their chemistry is hotter than a Texas summer!

For all his cheeky self-confidence, gorgeous Austin makes this relationship-shy doctor feel out of this world. So when their sizzling fling has an unexpected consequence, does Corrine dare to dream of a home and a future with her star-bound pilot…?

An astronaut and a secret baby? This sounds like my kind of story. I was a mechanical engineering student who was so into the space program I took a class called Life in Space taught by NASA in college and had a dream job offer doing dynamic analysis on shuttle launches, but the Challenger tragedy led to a hiatus in the program and me taking a different path. All I can say is how did I miss this one of Scarlet's? What do you think?
