Mpumie86 (doingitforthereads) | 13 comments Hi there!!

So I read this book more than fourteen years ago. I had just discovered historical romance (the bodice ripper kind!!) and I fell in live with this book. It had a dark cover and not much on it I think but I cannot be too sure. I checked it out of the library and after returning it could never find it.

this is what i remeber about it. A girl was abducted ( or a prize???) by/to a high ranking member of court. He took her and married her and then moved her to adipilated castle. he would go to court to report to the king and as time went on she was allowed to also come and spend time with the ladies in waitin and queen. In one scene the woman are speaking about how tiresome it is to have sexual relations with thier husbands and she complains that it is because her husband is so thorough in his lovemaking he bites her everywhere!! ( Yes she was an innocent as they would say in those times and did not realize that her complaint was not valid to the discussion.

he was ste dstandard cold and stand offish to her most of the time unless they were making love and as time went on they fell in love. i know its not much but i hope someone could recognize it and help.

Mpumie86, what's the time period and country (e.g., England, Scotland, France)? Was the king's court in London?

Can you tell us more about the heroine - aristocratic/rich/poor, family/friends, why was she selected, skills/interests/bluestocking, personality, etc.?

We don't close a thread once a book is found, but we do move it to Solved and shelve the book. Associating a book with the thread helps anyone in the future looking for the same book.
