Sally writes in with a HaBO PERFECT for Crazysauce day!
I’ve held back on this for a long time because I’m embarrassed by my memory, but I’m getting that desperate. I’m looking for the very first romance novel I ever read, which opened the floodgates to at least a thousand more books read over the past 30 years. The details in my mind are so very sketchy and my internet searches have come up with zip, so I’m hoping the resourceful readers of SBTB can help me out.
The book was a historical (smuggled from my mothers box of historical paperbacks). Since I was prolly 12 or 13 at the time the book could’ve been written anytime in the 70s—and that was a LONG time ago, I know.
I’m 99% certain the title had ‘rapture’ in it, like Love’s Enduring Rapture, et al.
I’m about 80% certain the heroine had long black hair
There was some kind of ship, tho I’m not sure about the pirate meme.
What is 100% emblazoned in my mind even at my advanced age is a scene where a man is looking through a spyglass and sees a woman’s vajayjay glistening in the sun.
And that’s all it took to hook me for a lifetime for romance readers.
Does anyone remember this book??
One always remembers the first time… one read about a glistening hoohaw in EXTREME CLOSE UP. Someone recall this gleaming wonderment?
