Diana Douglas: Apollo Nurse
November 1970 was the publication of Diana Douglas's book, Apollo Nurse, from Signet. Rena Drummond is attracted to the handsome astronaut who saved her from a shark in the surf a few days earlier! Can she compete against a beautiful socialite for his affections?
Allan Kass creates a great cover for this book! We see the rocket launch, our astronaut, and our nurse! The purple and orange colors are vibrant and the cover is a typical style for the time.
This book came out during the heyday of the Apollo flights and, I'm sure, was very popular! This is the first of many nurse romances by Diana Douglas that I have to post since Allan Kass illustrated many of her books! Enjoy and don't forget to click on the picture to enlarge!
