Dorothy Dowdell: Arctic Nurse
Arctic Nurse is a first in this collection since it's a Nurse Romance in the Candlelight Romance line. Published in June 1969, it's obviously one of Allan Kass's earlier works.
Lori Waters goes back home to Alaska, fleeing heartbreak, but who ends up becoming the new doctor, but Cliff Randolph, the man she loved and lost. Can love blossom in the frigid arctic?
Allan Kass illustrates our couple against the Alaskan mountains. They are dressed in warm jackets, but still wear the cap and uniform of their occupation. Note the totem pole right behind the hero! The image quality isn't the best, but it's a unique Kass illustration that I hope you enjoy and I'm wondering if he did others for the Candlelight line?
