Dorothy Cole: Nurse at the Fair
Nurse at the Fair was published by Signet in February 1973 for author Dorothy Cole. This is the only book I have by her illustrated by Allan Kass and one of the first "nurse" romances listed in this blog!
This story is about Merilee Maxwell who is secretly engaged to Dr. Kendall Ryder, but is attracted to new patient, tv star Tex Howard! Who is the right man for her?
Allan Kass shows our couple near a fairground in a pensive moment. She wears a nurses cap and holds a clipboard while the hadsome doctor wears a steathscope around his neck. I'm not sure what the horses and jockeys have to do with the cover, but it looks like a race! It's definitely a departure from Kass's regency covers and I really like it!
