Unusual assignments were nothing new to Grace Vincent, R.N. Yet few were as strange — or exciting — as her nursing stint with a movie company shooting a science-fiction epic on a desert. To Grace, the world of the Hollywood actors and crew seemed as awesome as the distant planet in the film, and she felt like a mere mortal among gods. But the movie people all became her fans when she defied the stubborn director in order to save the life of a stuntman. Even Cliff Mercer, the director himself, became her admirer once he’d simmered down. That was how their romance began. But something warned Grace she could never keep the interest of a man like Cliff, always surrounded by the country’s most beautiful, fascinating women.
