Heart and the City by Cecilia Fyre / #Interview #BlogTour @rararesources @CeciliaFyre




Love Medicine series book 1

British doctor Lea Holm has come to New York to work in her chosen field of emergency medicine. She loves her new life in this exciting city and can’t wait to get started with her research project. The last thing she needs are distractions.

But then she meets famous actor Ricco Como in her building – a distraction if ever there was one. He’s gorgeous and sweet, and there’s an immediate connection between them. Lea tries to resist temptation, but when he comes to her for help dealing with his steadily worsening migraine she can’t turn away from his plight.

As Ricco’s health takes a turn for the worse, their lives become more and more entwined. But can their growing attraction withstand the strain of his ill health, and can he let Lea be more than just his doctor?

The series is set in New York City and was written before COVID-19. It makes no reference to recent events.




– When and where do you prefer to write?

I used to write by hand first, so I could do it wherever I was. Now, though, as I’ve become more proficient at it, I write directly into Word, so I need to be at my desk. I like it when it’s quiet where I write.

– Do you have a certain ritual?

I write best in the morning, so I tend to get up early and write before work, when the world is still asleep.

– Is there a drink of some food that keeps you company while you write?

Coffee! I’m not awake until I had to cups, so that’s always on my desk first thing. Also, I like plotting while eating chocolate. I tell myself it feeds the inspiration.

– What is your favourite book?

A recent favourite is Longbourn, Jo Baker. Great retelling of an Austen classic.

– Do you consider writing a different genre in the future?

I’m already on my third genre. This pen name is new, I was doing something else before. I love reading all sorts, and as I become more confident I add more genres to my possible future endeavours.

– Do you sometimes base your characters on people you know?

Not a whole character, but certain backgrounds or traits, yes.

– Do you take a notebook everywhere in order to write down ideas that pop up?

Always! I need a waterproof one for the shower though. That’s where I have my best ideas.

– Which genre do you not like at all?

No such thing. I’ve read some of everything, but real favourites are historical and mysteries.

– If you had the chance to co-write a book. Whom would it be with?

She’s sadly dead now, but Ursula LeGuin would’ve been a dream come true.

– If you should travel to a foreign country to do research, which one would you chose and why?

I’ve always wanted to visit Thailand, and I have a few favourite authors who have written books set there, so that would probably be one.

About the author

Cecilia Fyre is the pen name of a romance author trying out something new.

She likes sunny, crisp autumn days. Cups of hot cocoa with little marshmallows floating on top. The roaring of the sea. Laughing until your face hurts. The silence when you curl up with a good book. Her stories are about people. Some of them are strange, some think they’re boring. They all have secrets, they’re all scared sometimes. Cecilia writes about life, about love. About how hard it is to do it right. Usually, there’s a happy ending, or at least there might be one, someday. But life’s not all sunshine and roses, and that’s why Cecilia tells her stories.

In the real world, Cecilia lives in England.
