Dallas was afraid to let herself dream!

Dallas Drew was the youngest and prettiest nurse at the hospital, and certainly the most inexperienced. Naturally, when the glamorous and popular Dr. Martin Loring became a patient there, she wasn't allowed to take a hand in nursing him.

So it came as a considerable surprise when he picked Dallas to supervise his convalescence at his

Maybe I just had too high of an expectation for this book, but I didn't get that feel good, happy, sigh kind of moment when I finished it. In fact, I was hoping he would end up with evil OW. They so deserved each other. This was a case where the heroine "could have" and "should have" done better for herself. His actions were truly unforgivable.

I guess because she was young and naive, she fell for him, But honestly, I see a life of misery for her.

Also, the plot was confusing. He has a sister-in

Oh. Dear. God. I love Ida Crowe (Susan Barrie, in this case). She is now my new favourite author. At the rate I'm going, I'm going to have a whole handful of favourite authors now.

This book was so sweet and angsty and extremely well written. I enjoyed it so much, I wish I could have the joy of reading it all over again without knowing how it's going to end. It kept you on your toes throughout the entire book, you never knew what was going to happen. In the middle you think everything is resolved

Out of my lot of 24 vintage Harlequins, this one has been my most delicious. Doctor/nurse things in a manor on the moors, shall I even continue? I liked the appearance of Hot Rival Joanna, and you all know I love big fancy British houses. I died when for lunch they had fish with Hollandaise sauce, I mean really.

Though my favorite, this had the world's most confusing plot hole. Okay, so the doctor had the same last name as his sister-in-law? But they weren't related and she was a widow? I don't.

Love these old school romances between the innocent young nurse and the distinguishd older consultant at her hospital. When Dr Martin Loring is in an accident, he is nursed at the hospital where he is a consultant and Dallas Drew is the nurse who sits with him those first two nights when he is unconscious. Once he is conscious of course he is too important for a little student nurse to wait on so she doesn't see him again until he's almost ready to leave.

However he's organised that she be the nu
