The Patient Nurse:
Dr. Ramon Cortero's patient, Nurse Noreen Kensington, has a serious case of heartache. Maybe the only remedy is a dose of old-fashioned tenderloving care from the seductive doctor! But Ramon's stormy history with Noreen made him the one man she didn't want rescuing her now that she was ill.
When truths about the past are revealed, Ramon is determined to make things right with the woman who's haunted his dreams for so long. But will this patient doctor be able to mend Noreen's broken heart before it's too late?
This was a "classic" Diana Palmer-style romance. The tension ran rampant throughout the pages and by the end I was swooning at the romance. The characters were typical of Diana's writing, the girl is young and innocent, had hard pressed to pay her bills. While the man is rich and handsome, and after being hurt in some way in the past, takes his temper out on the heroine. But she just keeps coming back for more because she loves him. What I enjoyed about this one was that Noreen was intelligent, if unworldly, even though she had the tendency to let everyone walk all over her. Ramon is your typical alpha male with a little bit of chauvinistic characteristics thrown in, it bothered me that he felt he wanted to control Noreen's future friendships--allowing only female companionship. But all-in-all this was a great romantic read that made my heart flutter for the characters.
