Amy Huff | 11 comments I hope I posted my query properly. I read this book within the last 5 or 10 years, I think. (So many books, so little time!). Heroine was considered a bad woman, though not sure if society knew of divorce. Her exhusband was sexually abusive...held orgies, I think... That is where the statue came in? He wanted her to do things with the statue?
The hero is connected with h's brother. Wanted revenge and decided to take it out on h? Hero realizes h has been living in shame due to circumstances.

Serendi I Googled some relevant terms and turned up this page: http://www.jobev.com/reghist.html
which has a whole bunch of Jo Beverley novels described. One has a statue, another a sexually abusive dead husband, several orgies, revenge, various brothers... any chance there's a book that combines them all?

Ruzza | 302 comments The first thing that came into mind was Jo Beverley's Forbidden.

Ahh just saw that you said it's probably not one of her books. Sorry.
I don't know....It sounds really familiar. I just can't place it.

Amy Huff | 11 comments Thank you anyway. Still drives me crazy, trying to remember because the H had some very good dialogue.
