About eight or so
years ago, a friend of mine got a romance novel from the library and told me
all about it. I don’t remember the title, all I remember was that it
involved a girl thief or pickpocket who tries to steal from a lord, gets
caught by him, and he makes a deal with her where she pretends to be his
fiance or something (not sure why…I want to say to make his family stop
bothering him to marry or something…). I remember the cover was pink
(along with about 90% of romance novels) and that when I opened the book,
there was a picture of the girl in a pretty pink ball gown (with a guy of
course). I also remember reading a scene from the book where they are at a
ball and the two characters are out on a balcony at the ball argueing about
something she said while pretending to be his fiance and there is lots of
tension. I have been looking for this book everywhere I can ever since my
friend read it. Unfortunately my friend does not remember what book this was
and since it was from the library, I have no idea of knowning how old it is.
I do know it was not published before 2000. If you know of any book that
might fit this plot, I would greatly appreciate it. I don’t mind if it
takes you a while to get back to me (since I’ve already been looking for
years). Hopefully this rings a bell.
Danielle is like me, in that she totally remembers the cover. I remember things like that, plus where certain words or scenes appear on a page. But aside from all that – anyone remember this book?
