Erin asks for your help with a book featuring time travel, and fake virginity loss!
I’ve been a lurker on the site for a while and have seen the
ladies of SBTB help many a bitch out. I’m hoping they can help me too. The
book I’m looking for is about 10 years old (published before 2001 for

What I remember is this.. the heroine starts off running away from her
wedding (can’t remember why), then ends up driving through the desert in
her wedding gown. She somehow ends up traveling through time back to the old
west (may have something to do with a magical person she met at a dusty
roadside stop?). Once she gets sucked through time, she staggers in the
desert for a while until she sees a lone rider, who picks her up and takes
her back to a small town, where he cuts her loose because she’s not his
problem. She somehow gets auctioned off in a whore house because she’s a
virgin. Surprise of all surprises, the lone rider ends up buying her cause
he feels bad or something. They spend the night together but don’t do
anything, so he cuts his hand and bleeds on the sheets to make it look like
they did. That’s about all I can remember, but I think at the end he comes
forward to modern times and meets her in a library where she’s reading the
story of his life thinking he’s dead – though this ending could be ripped
from another book altogether?
I really hope you can help! This is the first romance I ever read and I’m
I love that so many people can recall their first romance ever. There used to be so many time travel romances, too – anyone recall this one?
