He seemed to be everywhere

It amazed Lucy how regularly Mr. der Linssen, the handsome Dutch doctor who taught one of her nursing classes, kept turning up in her life. She would bump into him at the hospital, at her home and even in Holland when she went on vacation. If only he knew she existed! But that wasn't likely, Lucy thought, since far prettier girls were obviously

4 Stars ~ Lucy's first meeting with the Professor is one that both would remember always. After a busy night shift on the Children's Ward, she'd been required to attend the Professor's lecture before getting any sleep, so sitting in the front row, his calm and pleasant voice like a lullaby, Lucy fell asleep. And when the Professor called upon her to answer a question about his lecture, Lucy opened her brilliant green eyes that sparkled and told the truth, that she had been sleeping. Lucy's the y ...more

I'm a Betty Neels fan. I love her distinctly English period (mid-20th century)romances. Since Betty Neels married a Dutch doctor and was a nurse, I suppose no one should be surprised that ONCE AGAIN her heroine is a nurse and the hero is --you guessed it--a Dutch doctor (a nice successful and rich one too). The richest kind--as in the old coffee commercial. I'm not one for writing or reading many stories with alpha male heroes, which are Betty's favorite. But I do often write Waif heroines. This ...more

I first read this book in April 1979 but the system is not accepting the date. I guess it was much to long ago, however I have read all of Betty Neels books. She's my favorite Harlequin author.

Why couldn't the hero just tell her he lived her when he proposed?

Sweet story of plain but beautiful inside Lucy meeting Fraam when she falls asleep in his lecture. They are antagonistic towards each other in typical Neel's fashion but there is rather more drama and adventure as well as insight into Lucy's insecurities. Fraam makes for a good RDD hero and Lucy is wonderful.

So long since I’ve read a Betty Neel, but it’s still exactly what I expected. It’s the usual young nurse and Dutch surgeon pairing, with tropes a-plenty, but sometimes you just want a comfort read.

A reminder of how stupid romance novels can be. At 75%, I mark this book as read.

HE SEEMED TO BE EVERYWHERE

It amazed Lucy how regularly Mr. der Linssen, the handsome Dutch doctor who taught one of her nursing classes, kept turning up in her life. She would bump into him at the hospital, at her home and even in Holland when she went on vacation. If only he knew she existed! But that wasn't likely, Lucy thought, since far prettier girls were obviously his for the asking….

I really liked this one. It was a little different than what I was expecting. When they locked her in the hotel room because she couldn't pay the bill...I literally laughed out loud. Hahaha. This is fluffy romance at it's best.
Nell
A lovely cosy read leaving you longing for a slap up tea and a handsome rich dutch surgeon.

Betty Neels was born on September 15, 1910 in Devon to a family with firm roots in the civil service.

She was sent away to boarding school, and then went on to train as a nurse, gaining her SRN and SCM, that is, State Registered Nurse and State Cert ...more
