I’m searching for the title and author of a book I read about ten years ago as a teen. My mother and I were discussing romance novels recently and both recalled this one but it has either been lost or trashed. As far as I remember, it would have been published in the early / mid nineties, likely as a Harlequin or Silhouette title. The book starts out with the heroine kidnapped and being held in some isolated cabin…. somewhere. Enter hero who has been sent by her family to rescue her. He may have been a hero of the clichéd Native American tracker kind, but not sure. He rescues her and they then start the journey away from wherever she has been held (if I recall correctly, a very remote, rural and I *think* snow-covered location) back to her family home.
I realize that this description is not all that detailed right now, so I offer up the very few random details I DO remember: at some point in the journey, they stopped at a diner and ate burgers. And apple pie. Also, once back at heroine’s family home, they get frisky in the stables (or barn?) and heroine’s brother walks in on them (the relationship was kept secret from her family). The threat to heroine and her family does not end once she has been rescued – I recall some ongoing mystery / suspense once back with her family. So yeah, this bitch would appreciate any help / hints / suggestions you smart bitches can come up with based on my very flimsy description… would love to find this again for my mother so we can reminisce.
I love that she and her mom are comparing notes on romance. Anyone else share a love of the genre with their parental unit? I love books as bonding items.
