I like to unwind by reading an occasional romance novel, when I’m not surrounded by mountains of work. Sometimes, if I really like a book, I can read it twice, usually several years apart though. About five years ago, my mother-in-law loaned me a book and I loved it, but I can’t for the life of me remember the name. She is deceased now and most of her things are either gone or put away. I got most of her books, but that one was not in her collection. I remember a little about the story line. A man was in Paris, in bed with a woman when his friends interrupted and told him that someone had arrived. They left quickly. He was making plans to have revenge on an evil man, not sure what country but I think England, who years before had his wife killed. The previous man was framed for the crime….I believe he had been a schoolteacher who had tried to help the woman and child. In the end, the father tries to auction the child, now a woman, to the highest bidder. The man wanting revenge crashes the wedding and marries her, I believe. I hope that is correct. I may have gotten more than one book crossed. Can you tell me a title or an author, and perhaps some similar books?
Oh, and I seem to remember a pet tiger in there somewhere.
I have a few books that connect me to someone who isn’t living any more – I hope someone can connect Delilah with this book. Any ideas?
