Desire without passion, nominally (3)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'nominally' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I cannot tell whether it can be defined by this definition.
'desire without passion' is the wordplay.
'without' is a deletion indicator.
'passion' becomes 'ire' (I've seen this before).
'desire' with 'ire' taken out is 'DES'.
Can you help me to learn more?
