Romances featuring a doctor and nurse falling in love was particularly popular in the 1950s. In 1953, Harlequin entered the world of Medical Romance or Doctor/Nurse Romance when they began publishing American author Lucy Agnes Hancock. Over the next decade, romance fiction, particularly of the Doctor/Nurse style comprised a larger portion of the fiction mix.
