Kitschy Paperbacks About Nurses In Love
February 9, 2003 9:25 AM   Subscribe

Playing Doctors And Nurses Often Requires Loving Patients. Not to mention a high level of kitsch-resistance. Here's a delightful collection of nurse-obsessed penny-dreadfuls from the engaging Tiny Pinneapple weblog, complete with covers and zippy, erotocally charged made-to-order blurbs: "It was fortunate that Portugal had always held a strong attraction for Nigel Baxter, for otherwise she might not have agreed to her uncle Evan's request that she give up her vacation plans in order to take on a case there. Evan Baxter was one of David Wycherly's doctors, and since Mr. Wycherly had suffered a leg fracture while vacationing at his home in Estoril, Dr. Baxter felt that Nigel could care for him and at the same time fulfill her wish to see Portugal."

Erotocally, of course, conforms to the new Jamie's ortographical standard. ;)

"Surgery is no life for a woman." Ann Kenyon had heard that sentence since her childhood, but she'd struggled toward her goal with determination, concentrating only on her work, too busy to think of men . . . And now, an able and respected surgeon, she was learning for the first time in her life what it meant to be a woman. To be in love, to be in doubt, to fight the turmoil of emotion that rose within her, clouding her mind even as she held a scalpel in her hands."

This is PRECISELY why I refuse to have women operate on me.

And thank you Miguel, for this post gives me a chance to ask a question that has long troubled me: what exactly is a Hot Nurse Job?
