Aloha to Nina Rowan's A DREAM OF DESIRE

Today is Towel Day. Science fiction fans will understand the significance. Perhaps James Forester - the hero from Nina Rowan's A DREAM OF DESIRE - packed a towel for his travels to far flung places around the world ... while Talia found other endeavours to keep her mind off him:


For most her life, Lady Talia Hall has been dreaming of the day James Forester will take her in his arms and kiss her with unrestrained passion. Tired of waiting, Talia decides to take drastic measures to make James see her as more than his best friend's little sister. But her bold plan goes awry when the scoundrel informs her that he is leaving London-and her-for a life of adventure traveling the world. Crushed, Talia throws herself into her reform work and vows never again to let her foolish heart get the better of her.

But even halfway across the world, James can't stop thinking of the beautiful Talia, her bold declaration . . . or her brazen kiss. And when James learns that Talia's reform work has thrown her into the path of danger and scandal, nothing can keep him from returning to London. But a broken heart is not easily put back together, and old habits die hard. Talia and James must learn that trusting in true love is the greatest adventure of all...


Originally from California, Nina Rowan holds a PhD in Art History from McGill University, Montreal, with a specialization in 19th century French and Russian art. A librarian-at-heart, she also has an MA in Library and Information Sciences. Nina lives in Wisconsin with her atmospheric scientist husband and two children.

A special towel for today's celebration


  1. I'm going to have to look up Towel Day!!!!

  2. Never heard of towel day. So many things I do not know.

    1. Aloha, Debby! I didn't know what it was until I looked it up, too. My husband knew immediately what it was ... but he also reads science fiction. I'll share the answer new week with the Weekly Winners!

  3. Yea for Forever Romance! Hope all of you are having a grand Memorial Day Weekend. We are. Lazy lazy lazy. Reading reading reading. Eating eating eating. :-) I did take long walk with my Yorkie, however, while it was still cool. And I learned something new: Towel Day! Love to learn new things.

  4. I read the first book in this series and it was good. Now I have to read the other two.

  5. Nina is a new author for me. I also have never heard of towel day, but am off to look it up.
