Dearest Mary Jane
"Would you like me for a brother-in-law, Mary Jane?" She wouldn't like him for a brother-in-law - she would like him for a husband! But why should she suddenly discover this now of all times, sitting opposite him, being cross-examined as though she were in a witness-box . . . and fighting an urge to fling her arms around his neck and tell him that she loved him? "Yes, oh yes, that would be delightful."
When the vicar's daughter met the surgeon, Florence Napier thought Alexander Fitzgibbon a cold, humorless man. The eminent surgeon had hired her as the new nurse for his private practice, but he didn't seem to like her. Nor was Florence at all sure she liked him. Still, she had to admit he was a dedicated doctor, generous with his skills and considerate toward his patients. Slowly Florence began to notice that many of Alexander Fitzgibbon's actions contradicted his aloof demeanor, revealing a man whowas as attractive inside as out. So it shouldn't have been a surprise when she realized, one day, that she'd fallen in love with him.
