Are celebrities really like you and me under their trappings of glamour, wealth, and chauffered [sic] limousines? Red-haired Cathy Lewis, a skilled and devoted young private-duty nurse, was about to find out. She had accepted a position with New York’s Acme Celebrity Service, an exclusive agency that supplied the rich and the famous with personnel in every category, including nursing. And Cathy’s first assignment was to be a live-in nurse in the palatial hotel suite of famous movie star Roland Keating! The dark and handsome Roland was recuperating from open-heart surgery, and it was to be Cathy’s job not only to administer his medications but also to keep his presence in New York, and his condition, a secret.
When her services to Roland Keathing [sic] were abruptly terminated after an encounter with a press photographer, Cathy was assigned to care for a suicidal theater star and then a crusty old ex-diplomat whose house guest was a Middle-Eastern prince with hemophilia. As Cathy soon learned, Prince Akbar was the target of terrorists, who kept the mansion under constant surveillance.
Prince Akbar’s Secret Service man, Bob Baird, was obviously falling in love with Cathy. But she couldn’t get the special blood-stirring magic of Roland Keating out of her head or her heart. Did she have a chance with him? Cathy was to discover the answer to this and much more as she struggled to fulfill her duties as a celebrity nurse.
MINKS, MONEY, AND MURDER!
Steffanie Malden’s husband hadn’t been dead twenty-four hours when she showed up in Perry Mason’s office. Her diamonds sparkled, but there were no tears in her beautiful eyes.
According to her story, Dr. Malden had taken at least $100,000 in cash from fees and hidden it away in the love-nest apartment he kept for his nurse. The income tax people had been investigating but so far had no proof. She wanted Mason to settle the estate — including the taxes — and do whatever he thought best for her interests.
Mason should never have accepted her as a client. But she was out of his office before he fully realized what she really wanted him to do was lift that $100,000, hold it until things settled down and then split it with her. That [words obscured] taxes.
Perry Mason was a sucker, then. But it was a lot worse when Steffanie Malden was — ARRESTED FOR MURDER!

Bonnie Schuyler let herself be talked into joining the Candy Stripers. As a junior aide at the Medical Center, she lightened the heavy work load each regular nurse had.

One day she met David, a technician who was interested in a hospital career. Somehow he made her feel rather special and very grown-up.
Fiona loved nursing…but alas, it was not a job that seemed likely to bring her the money she needed to save her beloved family from disaster.
