From Patricia comes this absolute cacophony of WTFery:
Okay just for clarification I read this when I worked at a convent nursing
home. It’s one of those old school brick sized romance novels where she’s
a beautiful upstairs maid who gets raped by her boss who then claims she
stole his wife’s necklace to have her deported to Colonial America and sold
as an indentured servant.
Two guys get into a bidding war over her but she
ends up going to tall, dark and extremely cranky. Who then lets her seduce
him before selling her off to the other bidder in a moment of tragic
angstyness. Other guy is of course madly in love with her but sets her up as
a courtesan in New Orleans in his gambling house.
But, in town on business, tall dark and cranky finds her and decides he
wants her back because he’s *gasp* secretly pining for her. The good guy
who’s really a pimp ends up dying in a duel over her and she ends up with
the first asshat and together they decide to go back to England because the
American Revolution is just bad. Bad! Super bad!
This sucker is so bad it’s good for the bathtub reading or post anesthesia.
Or if you’re a retired nun. Any ideas? Anyone?
WOW. Just…WOW. Anyone remember this book?
