    One thought on “Tempestuous April”

    1. This one just didn't work for me at all. Surprisingly, I found the whole book to be rather flat. I didn't care for the interaction between H/h and the hero was not likable. I believe this is one of Betty's earlier endeavors. Suffice it to say, she certainly improved when it came to creating swoon worthy heroes. The whole premise of the book is that both fall in love at first sight. I guess I believe in "lust" at first sight, but not "love" at first sight. Chemistry is certainly a necessary eleme [...]

Of the fated kind where their eyes meet and somehow they know. HOwever it takes a little while for them to get things together and Friso is an acknowledged flirt with several girls on a string.Just when it all seems to be coming together, trouble is made by Sieske' [...]

    6. First published as "Nurse Harriet Goes to Holland" Harriet had met the man of her dreams, the one she'd always imagined herself marrying. But Dr. Friso Eijsinck was very attractive, and he seemed to be surrounded by pretty girls. Harriet began to feel that, as far as Friso was concerned, she was only one of many. What she didn't know was that Friso had met his dream wife, and he was going to make sure that he married her.Sweet and entertaining.
