This was longer than most stories I have read by Betty, but it was enjoyable and I did get quite a chuckle from time to time. This was definitely written during Betty's amazon, beautiful and brash heroine phase. (Which I definitely prefer over the mousy, timid phase).

"Sausage rolls?" He eyed her shapely person thoughtfully. "an insufficient diet for one of your build, Florence. "

Ok, so he wasn't exactly the most subtle of heroes, but he actually grew on me. He certainly brought
This book got me straight away and I havent been able to put it down, I had mixed feelings about the H Alexander but Florence I did like, she was fiery as she was described in the book and in this one she wasn't a plain Jane which makes me think if she was perhaps Alexander might have softened towards her lol. Alexander did eventually grow on me but just like Florence when you began to like him he would do a big turn around and you would begin to dislike him again.
I liked how Florence stood up t

She's done it again! Betty Neels holds us in her hands and gives us what we need--characters who are what we secretly yearn to be. She never preaches but we absorb the fact that we are stronger than we thought. When we finish her stories, we sigh and think, 'I can do better'.

A Easy Read

Not a lot going on, but as always with Betty Neels, interesting details. Doctor not so very attractive, at least to me.

I love anything by Betty Neels. Her writing is predictable and her characters are frighteningly similar, and yet I can't get enough. I'm always drawn to sweet, sappy romances that shouldn't-be, and I can count on Betty Neels to deliver whenever I'm in the mood. Romantic Encounter is the first Betty Neels book I read, and I just finished it for the second time. Just as cute the second time around!

Florence is Alexander's new nurse. Trying to understand the complex doctor is very difficult for Florence.

An excellent story.
