Help A Bitch Out

HaBO: Two for One

Reader Tibbles writes:

I’m looking for two books given to me several years ago in a box of books from a friend’s older lady neighbor.  When my hubby and I moved a bunch of my books ended up wet and molded and got thrown out while I wasn’t around to write down fav titles.

The book starts in England with the female being in business or something (Historical).  She ends up sleeping with the hero because he catches her at something she isn’t supposed to do.  She ends up sick wherever he took her and he and she have sex before he realizes its not just an excuse.  They go their separate ways and then end up meeting up at a party some time later.  Their one day of “pleasure” has resulted in pregnancy.  He forces a marriage and they move to America.  Someone comes back and attempts to blackmail her.  At first I had thought it was the Flame and the Flower (Woodiwiss) but when I bought that book, it turned out not to be.  Help!

The second book starts in somewhere like Maryland during the revolutionary war.  The h lead female is nicknamed Cottontop because of her hair.  The hero marries her to save her or something.  Hero is later thought dead while she is moved to New York.  Ends up with another guy.  Hero comes back alive.  They end up in Cuba or somewhere like that at one point.  Hope it’s enough facts for someone to help!

You get TWO, that’s TWO Habo’s for the price of one! And as usual, first person to guess one or the other within the first 1 or 2 comments receives Smart Bitch Title, guaranteed to cut through a tomato and never, ever get dull.

    The first seems like an old Catherine Coulter novel, Evening Star

    I don’t have any ideas about the second, though. Hope this helps!

    Yay!  Finally!  I know one!  I’m pretty sure the first of those two is Catherine Coulter’s “Sweet Surrender”.  I loved that book as a teenager.

    Looks like Sweet Surrender and Evening Star are the same book under different titles.

    I know I’ve read the one w/ Cottontop, but I can’t remember the title.  Argh!  Now you’ve got me wanting to know what it’s called too…

    (looking64 seems fitting, lol)

    Seriously neither of those books can be ‘Fires of Paradise’ by Brenda Joyce.  I’ve read that particular book four or five times, so no, definitely not.

    Thanks.  The one is definitely Evening Star.  I read it when it was Sweet Surrender.  Still looking for the other though!
