This Old Thing? Doctor Arnold's Ambition

Doctor Arnold's Ambition was a library book sale purchase. As soon as I saw it, I had to have it. It's an old, old school Harlequin romance. The funny thing is it was 50 cents new in 1968 and I paid 50 cents used for it in 2010. That darn inflation!

Anyway isn't it a beaut? Love her old fashioned nurse's hat and the Beav's Dad hanging out behind her. Sooooo sexy! Oh Doctor Arnold! You scamp!

BookBlips: vote it up!


  1. That cover is great! It's been a long time since I've seen a Harlequin that old. Thanks for a blast from the past!

  2. Hmmm, I think she looks a slutty for buttoned-up Arnold.

  3. Very cool -- who'd have thought that a Harlequin romance would hold its value :-)

  4. Is she REALLY a nurse, or is that just some sort of saucy costume? :D I can't wait to read your review of this. Old romances are either really really good or downright awful.

  5. Kay- It was the oldest one in the box. Probably someone was cleaning our their closet.

    Jill- Yes, Arnold is a little stiff and not in a good way.

    Suzanne- I know, right?

    Stephanie- hehe, you never know. It will be fun seeing if it's good or awful, I think.

  6. That is such a deliciously funny, iconic cover! I would have snatched it, too. Funny about the price.

  7. Bookfool- 50 cents was probably a lot then.

  8. what a classic! The cover is like an old movie poster.

    I wonder if you'll find what you expect in the storyline.
