Far from being brokenhearted when her long-standing and rather dull engagement to Tony came to an end, Prudence welcomed it as an opportunity to break out of her comfortable shell, to make a new and exciting life for herself. So the job that Benedict van Vinke offered—acting as his secretary and looking after his little daughter—had come just at the right time. It would also give Prudence a chance to visit Holland. But would she have such an exciting life, after all, if she accepted Benedict's cold-blooded proposal?
SECOND THOUGHTS It was love at first sight for Britannia Smith when she met Professor Jake Luitingh van Thien. She even shamelessly followed him to Holland, hoping to see more of him. Britannia succeeded and to her joy, he proposed! But just when all seemed perfect, she met Madeleine de Venz. Madeleine was right for Jake, in every way, and Britannia became utterly convinced that to go ahead with their wedding might ruin Jake's life.
Matilda had every quality that turned a man's head, but she had remained heart-whole and fancy-free despite a number of offers. Then she met eminent surgeon James Scott-Thurlow and fell in love at first sight. But James clearly did not feel the same way. How could he when he was already engaged to the glamorous Rhoda?
How could he be so handsome…and yet so cold? Ward Sister Josephine Dowling was heartbroken over the end of her engagement, but how could she marry a man she didn't really love? What she didn't expect, though, was to have to cope with her tears and the arrogant attitude of the brilliant Dr. Julius van Tacx. He seemed to make a habit of finding her just when she was feeling—and looking—her worst. And when he was at his most handsome….
WAS SHE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME? Cressida had lost her parents and badly needed a new focus. So going to Holland to help an elderly Dutch doctor with a book he was writing, giving up her own nursing job for a while, seemed ideal. Her new employer had two partners. One was elderly and friendly, like himself, while the other was younger and…not quite so friendly. Giles van der Tiele always seemed to be snubbing Cressida, putting her in her place. But when he wanted to, he could be extremely charming—too much so for her peace of mind!
Her family had to come first To keep her small family together, Isobel Barrington managed to make ends meet-just!-by doing private nursing jobs. Her mother had only a small pension and her younger brother had to be educated somehow. Isobel really shouldn't have had time to fall in love with Dr. Thomas Winters-but she did anyway. Unfortunately, he wasn't likely to be interested in her when the lovely Ella Stokes was around, so Isobel ought to try to forget him. Easier said than done!
"Your personal life is of no interest to me." Renowned consultant Alexander Fitzgibbon had made it clear from the start that their relationship was to remain strictly professional. Yet Florence couldn't help but wonder what lay behind his cool, efficient exterior. If only she could break down the barrier and reach the man behind it....
"A rather dull girl…with no looks to speak of." Doctor Charles Trescombe's opinion of his niece's governess was far from complimentary. Cordelia knew she was plain. She also knew what good manners were, and the high-and-mighty doctor didn't have any! But there was magic in Vienna that could transform even the most unlikely people. Much to her dismay, Cordelia fell in love with him anyway. And Charles soon discovered that quiet and unassuming ways had a knack for stealing a man's heart—without him even realizing it.
Would it really be a convenient marriage? Lucas van de Weijnen didn't ask Octavia to marry him—he told her. Octavia's father had just died and she wasn't in any state of mind to make a rational decision. Besides, Lucas wasn't a man to take no for an answer. But after the wedding, Octavia found herself falling under the spell of a man—her husband! And though they had both promised to love each other for the rest of their lives, she had no idea how Lucas felt about her.
Working for Professor Sam Gervis was difficult enough, even if you weren't falling in love with him...which Polly was. Luckily she was realistic about the situation. Sam was engaged to the lovely Deirdre. And besides, he would never look twice at anyone as quiet and mousy as Polly. So she decided, sensibly, to get away and take up a new career nursing children. But she soon discovered that Sam was not an easy man to escape!
