A Christmas Proposal
Dr. Oliver Hay-Smythe seemed to have met a modern-day Cinderella! Ever since Bertha's father had remarried, the kindhearted woman had been put upon by her family. She appeared to live in her stepsister's shadow, stuck doing the housework and wearing hand-me-downs! The doctor was about to change all that. In fact, he was about to change Bertha's entire world.
Some people might think Emily Seymour was a bit prim and proper. But she preferred to think of herself as sensible; she was a staff nurse, after all. Unfortunately, all the good sense in the world couldn't stop her from falling in love with Professor Renier Jurres-Romeijn, though he barely seemed to notice her. He was too busy making plans for a winter wedding. But who was his intended bride?
