Jill asks for your help in finding this old skool romance:
This is driving me nuts!! I cannot remember the title or characters names,
here is the plot…kind of. A girl maybe 17-18 years old is living in a
brothel( I can’t remember why she there). She is something of a maid.
She’s told that if she doesn’t start “working” like the other girls,
she’s gotta go. An older man comes in looking for a “girl” for his
grandson that is returning from sea (I think), he see’s this maid and picks
her, she thinks she’s going to be a governess for a child, unbeknown to her
that she’s been “bought” for a night.
She is taken to a mansion and shown
to “her” room. Sometime in the night the grown grandson shows up, finds a
girl in his room, rapes her and falls asleep. He wakes up the next morning
and realizes she was a virgin. I don’t remember if he keeps her there with
him or she goes back to the brothel, but I do remember her brother at some
point shows up, as it turns out he is old friends with the rapist, raises
hell and the poor girl and asshole marry. I think she becomes pregnant and I
remember Lord Byron had a cameo it this book. I think the guy in this book
is titled , maybe an heir to a duke?
Please help!! I read this book 15 years ago and would love to read it again.
I have searched the net and used book stores for 5 years now, with no luck
I am going to go out on a limb and guess that the cover might possible feature hot pink. Or teal. Or both! Anyone recognize this one?
