From Romantic Alice, who lost a wonderful book featuring very sound medical advice:
I read this about 10 years ago, but it was probably older than that as I got
it in a give away bin. It got donated on accident and I can’t find out what
It takes place in “the West.” I don’t remember the exactly location or
the hero/ heroines name. Our hero and heroine find themselves having to
share ownership of a building- I think because the original owner sold it to
both of them, but I don’t quite remember. He opens a sporting good shop in
his half of the store and she opens an academy for young ladies to learn
The scene I remember the most though is when she takes over running the
store for a day because he’s fishing or something, and she mistakes a jock
strap/athletic cup for an elbow supporter for when men go out hunting. She
wears said jock strap all day long on her elbow to demonstrate it for all
the customers. They are of course embarrassed and she sells them to everyone
and is enormously pleased with herself. When the hero comes back he tells
her the truth, she is mortified, he comforts her, and they have sex on the
counter of his store.
It was a really great book, and I’d really like to figure out what it is
because it’s been bothering me for awhile. Thanks for any help.
This is so going to be my costume on Halloween. I hope no one tries to tell me what my elbow brace is really for. Anyone recognize this book? And where would we be without romance to assist us with troublesome medical problems?
