"One day I'm going to touch you in a thousand different ways and show you how to touch me," he said. And he did.

Struggling with a tormented past, undergraduate Olivia Winter once led a practical but isolated life. Then she met Professor Dean West, a brilliant scholar of medieval history who melted Liv's inhibitions and taught her the meaning of both love and erotic pleasure. But after three years of a blissful, lusty marriage, Liv and Dean now face a crisis that threatens everything they believe about each other. And when dark secrets and temptations rise to the surface, the fallout might break them apart forever.

For Throwback Thursday this week we are featuring Arouse by Nina Lane. This book was published nearly two years ago. However, I’m just now getting around to reading it. I’m an idiot for waiting so long…LOL. 


Holy crap, what a cliffhanger! I REALLY enjoyed this book though. The book starts off kinda slow, but it turns into something wonderful – a 5 STAR read!!!

The writing is incredibly romantic, I connected with all the characters right away, and I might even go as far as to say that Arouse was PERFECT! Usually flashbacks in books annoy me because they take me out of the moment when all I want is for the story to move forward. But, ya know what? I LOVED the flashbacks in this book. Loved, loved, loved everything about this story. I should have started this series sooner. Stupid me.

So, you know this is a romance novel. Duh. I just can’t stress enough just how romantic this book is. Dean and Olivia love each other deeply. It’s in their blood and their bones and their entire beings. To be able to witness that as a reader is so very special. Arouse is a special, wonderful, loving, moving book that is the perfect read for the holidays.

The SPIRAL OF BLISS series is complete:
