When it came to handling emergencies at the Dynamics Manufacturing Company, Nurse Cindy Nielsen was a top-notch professional. But when it came to running her own life, she was a disaster. After she lost her boyfriend Bruce to another woman, she fell in love with her boss, Dr. Kevin Bellinger, though she knew he was engaged to a rich, beautiful girl. Meanwhile, handsome Vance Wagner, one of Dynamics’ top engineers, tried to win Cindy’s heart — in vain. And by the time she began to have second thoughts about Vance, he too seemed interested in another woman.
Would Cindy never learn to appreciate a man — unless he belonged to someone else?
Hilary wondered which was the real John Kirkall–the ambitious, apparently unfeeling surgeon who plagued her during working hours, or the hesitant man who showed occasional signs of having a heart.
Not that she was ever likely to find out. She knew that her place in his esteem had hit rock bottom.

Dr. Kirkall also showed occasional signs of wearing mascara.
And you just know those two in the background are going to be nothing but trouble.
Sister Lesley Heswell should have found only hapiness when she became engaged to Ivor Bentley, the Surgeon whose patience and skill she had long admired. But she had made a bitter enemy, and the help and support of true friends were needed before all her problems were solved.
Was Nurse Abby being forced into the wrong kind of love?
Each day at the hospital was filled with excitement, eagerness. For Nurse Abby was in love with her work — and with Dr. Dane McElvy. together they would wait for the end of his internship.
But someone, rich and powerful, had decided to change the course of their love. Now Abby found herself fighting for happiness.
Gretchen Bemis was a little plump by some standards, but she was the kind of girl who usually set her own standards, and if she wanted to be noticed by a man — even in a baggy nurse’s uniform — she usually was. In fact, among the internes [sic] at Sibert Memorial Hospital she was affectionately known as “Bemis de Milo.”
Not all of Gretchen’s friends in the hospital were like her. Not the delicate Rosemary Joplin, who resented her stepmother because her face always looked as though her feet hurt, and because she was not charmingly helpless like the playmate-mother who had died when Rosemary was fourteen. Not Nelle Gibson, whose square figure and dun-colored hair had made her decide that, not being beautiful, she’d better be bright.
This is the story of senior year at nursing school, when Gretchen and her friends, realizing that they were now adult human beings, began to come to grips with their problems. It was an exciting time for them, and most of all, perhaps, for Gretchen. For her wish was granted in a way that was as unexpected as it was delightful, and graduation day brought to her more than the stiff organdy graduate cap, so like a cupcake, that was the prize for all her hard work.
