Diana Douglas: Ski Lodge Nurse
Ski Lodge Nurse was published by Signet in February 1970. Ria Madden has been a nurse at the Hurricane Valley Ski Lodge and thinks it's the perfect job! This year, however, is different with a famous skiier and a hovering doctor both paying her attention.
Allan Kass illustrates this cover with our nurse, a skiier, and a dangerous man holding a rifle! Our skiier wears reflective ski wear and our nurse is in her uniform. I like the contrast of the white snow and the blue-green of the trees behind.
I believe that these themed nurse romances were quite popular in their day.
