    Book details

Dark Horse Manga and Harlequin Books are delighted to present a shining new line of books that marry two of the most successful phenomenon to hit bookstores - bestselling Harlequin romance fiction and female-friendly Japanese manga! These sparkling manga adaptations of Harlequin's best-selling titles are a romantic step above much of the cookie-cutter manga hitting the shelves today. A vacation fling was completely out of character for old-fashioned Carol, but her attraction to intriguing, older Marius tempted her to break her own rules. The next thing she knew, though, he'd turned up working at her hospital! Does she have what it takes to attract - much less keep the attentions of - this intimidating, sophisticated, and utterly compelling man?

Grade 10 Up London-based nurse Caroline is guileless and a little clumsy, but pure and lovable a typical manga heroine. She goes on a sightseeing trip to Amsterdam and, while there, delivers a book to a coworker's cousin, handsome and wealthy Marius. After returning to work, she begins caring for an unconscious three-year-old boy, only to find out that he is related to Marius, who is a renowned doctor called in to assist. The two fall in love and set off to live happily ever after. The book resembles traditional manga in many ways it reads right to left, the characters are stereotypically manga in orientation and expression, and the panel layouts are similar. In keeping with the romance theme, the book is illustrated and written entirely in pink ink. Romance novels and manga may at first seem incongruous, but there are actually many similarities. Scarcely believable plots, star-crossed lovers, sweet-natured heroines, and distant heroes are found frequently in both. Though purists may scoff at the melding of the forms, the book will appeal to the burgeoning population of young female manga fans.

    I bought this because I'm a huge Betty Neels fan and I was intrigued to see one of her books in comic form.I was a little disappointed. The writer changed the plot and the characterizations. The heroine became a simp and the hero was lusting after his sister in law. If you know Betty Neels you know none of her heroines are simps and her heroes only lust after the heroine, and they do that very discreetly. It isn't for nothing that Betty is known as the cleanest writer ever🙂

    If you're an avid romance reader like I am, then you should be familiar with the late author, Betty Neels. Betty Neels was most famous for her medical romances. Her heroes were almost exclusively Dutch doctors and her heroines as plain English nurses.Caroline, while visiting in Amsterdam, promised to give a book to her friend's cousin. There she meets Marius van Houben. Even though their meeting was brief, Caroline felt something for the doctor but knew nothing would come of it and in all probability, would never meet him again. Back in London, she works as a pediatric nurse and with an admittance of a special patient, Marius returned into her life. But there was Emily. How could Caroline compete with someone so sophisticated, beautiful and have a history with the doctor?I've read most of Betty Neels' books and in all honesty, you read one and kind of read them all. The books can be a bit tedious with the slow plotline and lot of inner thoughts. However, her stories are classics and makes you go back for more. And this manga only highlights why. The manga took all the best parts from the book, took out the unnecessary details and breathed new life into an outdated romance. I found the manga more enjoyable than the book. (The manga doesn't follow faithfully to the original story. But what the manga did was give a great deal more drama.) Is it the best in the harlequin manga series? Not really. But the characters were lovable and you couldn't help but feel empathy for the heroine. The dialogue were perfectly written. Overall, it's sweet with no humor. The drama was perfectly balanced. So when a scene started to lag, the next page will assuredly draw you in again. As an artist, the artwork is a little awkward for me to like, but after awhile, you don't really notice it except in a few panels. I found the style of drawing complements the heroine's young nature about love and hero's lack of understanding of love despite being in 30-40s.I think if you are a Betty Neels' fan or into a sweet romance, then I suggest the manga to you. If not, this manga might not be your cup of tea.
