Jane Converse: Society Nurse
Society Nurse was published in October 1975 and nurse Nina Bateman takes a private nursing case to care for a young heiress, Cindy, whose mother has Dr. Mark Danover in sight for her daughter! Can Nina compete with an heiress?
Allan Kass illustrates our cover with our heroine in front and the heiress and her wealth in the background. We see the handsome doctor nearby along with a Mercedes Benz and a beautiful house! One interesting fact is that Allan worked for the auto dealers and spent many years drawing cars for ads!
Nurse romances were very popular in the 1960's and 70's. They were the modern or current day version of romances along with gothic romances. Historical romances, like Barbara Cartland's, were also very popular during this time.
