Help A Bitch Out

HaBO: In the BED?!

Belinda is looking for this book. The description makes me want to wash the sheets!

A long time ago I read a book that I’m dying to find. I was told by my
chatter group that you know all!!!! Ok, not quite, but if anyone could help
me it would be you.

I believe it was an old Silhouette Intimate Moments.

This was a long time ago so I can’t remember names but: He was an Indian
Lawyer sent to prison for something and broke out because his grandfather
was dying. He broke into a woman’s house, tied her to him so she couldn’t
get away, got in bed and then relieved himself while she slept. He took her
with him, got stopped by a roadblock (which she helped him get thru) and got
to his grandfathers before he died. He was grieving and she went to him and,
well, you know. He went back to prison, she was pregnant, her mom is a
snobby bitch, he comes back and is standing at the door when he hears the
baby cry. (this is the part that gets me) He goes to the crib, takes his
diaper off and holds the baby up and says “A son.”

I can’t seem to find it (might help if I knew the names) I would like to
have it for my little library. I’d appreciate it if anyone could help.

I don’t know that I’d be all hero-yay! on a dude who relieved himself after tying himself to me and then getting in my bed. Anyone remember this book?

    Could this be it?

    HONOR BOUND, by Erin St. Claire

    http://www.amazon.com/Honor-Bound-Silhouette-Intimate-Moments/dp/0373071442

    I haven’t read it but the description/notes in the reviews sound like what you mentioned:

    Kidnapped by Lucas Greywolf, an escaped Navajo convict, Aislin finds both terror and romance during their desperate flight across Arizona to the Navajo reservation.

    (The reviews note that he escaped from prion because of his dying grandfather, that he was a lawyer, etc.)

    Okay maybe it’s because it’s early & I haven’t had enough coffee, but are we talking relieved himself biblically or, um… digestively? Wash the sheets indeed.
    And I will swear I’ve read this but then I read a lot of escaped from prison, snatched a girl & went on the lam stuff back in the day.

    Yep, it’s Honor Bound (and yep, in the biblical sense…)

    Yep, it was Honor Bound (a SIM) alright. I read this way, way back in the day. Erin St. Clair was a pseudonym for Sandra Brown. Some of her other St. Clair SIMs have been re-released. You can find them on Books on Board.

    I’ve read this! More than once. It’s definitely Honor Bound. I don’t remember him relieving himself (ha) but there is one scene in which he demands a handjob.

    Erin St. Claire is a pseudonym for Sandra Brown. I loved all of her old-school categories.

    Now that I think about it, I’m pretty sure that the sheets had an embarrassing damp spot. She was in her underwear, he hadn’t been near a woman in years, it was an accident/wet dream kind of thing.

    I was right, I did read “Honor Bound” back in the good old Erin St.Clair days. Wouldn’t surprise me to find it’s in one of the storage boxes under my bed.

    I remember reading this book and the part that really sent it over the top into crazy land for me is when he shows up the heroine’s house after getting out of prison (the second time not the time he escaped.)
    Everyone thinks he had probably raped the heroine when he abducted her before (he didn’t it was consentual) and when he shows up at her house unannounced and sees she had his son, he blackmails her into moving with him to the reservation (with the child) by saying he will get custody and take the son! Yeah right! How stupid was the heroine? I remember thinking “Is this a joke??” The court would TOTALLY give full custody to him and take the baby from it’s mother. He is after all a former escaped convict who abducted her. That is absolutely what the average judge would do! Oh but he is a “lawyer” so presumably he knows all those sneaky lawyer tricks that defy logic and the law.

    Biblically vs. digestively?  I think I’ve figured it out, but in the original article I thought “our hero peed the bed????”  Darn it, now I’ll have “he relieved himself, in the Biblical sense” running through my mind.

    I haven’t read the book, but Christine brought up the question of who would get custody… I don’t know how it would work in a situation like the one in this book, but in real life, foster care, it’s a MESS.  Tribal law supercedes regular law.  And the tribe can choose who a child of the tribe lives with.  Messy.  (Of course that’s a case where neither biological parent is able to care for the child.)

    OMG!  I got this in a pile of books from a friend’s deceased aunt and just read it.  (It is definitely going in the “give away”stack)

    The author’s name is Sandra Brown on my copy.

    Greywolf did not “Relieve himself while she slept” in any deliberate sense – he had wet dream because this was first woman he had been near in years. And she didn’t find out about it until he throws it in her face the next day that he isn’t desperate to screw her because he had relief overnight.  Still squicky, but not *quite* as bad.

    And yeah – They had consensual sex later, after Grandpa dies and before the cops show up, that accounted for the pregnancy.

    Don’t feel alone, Carin. I, also, first thought it meant the hero just couldn’t get to the bathroom in time.

    Actually, Honour Bound is a very good book, dealing with some serious and difficult issues.  I have re-read it more than once since I originally bought it around 1990 (it was published in 1986, but the UK edition came out a few years later).
    It’s funny what people remember from stories;  I had forgotten about the incident when he originally kidnapped her.

    lol squicky

    I was going to ask the biblical vs digestive question, too. Thanks for clearing that up.

    Actually, I’ve had friends lose custody and/or be unable to move out of the area because the tribal council decided custody. So it is a legit concern even if the dad is not a lawyer.

    I remember this book, too. It wasn’t so bad back then. I’ll have to see if I can find it and take another look.

    OMG I actually own this one. It wasn’t on my TBR list but seeing this I thought this can’t be any more wack then her Hawk O’Toole’s Hostage book and seeing I had nothing better to do…I decided to see. I’m on chapter 9 now and I have to admit I have not been able to put it down. That’s what I love about HaBO I find all kinds of books filled with Craziness to read. :D

    got in bed and then relieved himself while she slept

    My first thought – well, that’s what you get for tying yourself up to somebody in the first place!

    And I think I’m going to use ‘biblical relief’ – I love it!

    Even under these circumstances- where he had abducted her and it could easily be thought of by many as the child of a rape when the father (which he would have to prove first off) was an escaped convict? Also the mother had never lived on the reservation or had any kind of real relationship with the father. I cannot imagine a tribal council having that kind of control over someone not even a part of their community but again I know little to nothing about the laws relating to that body it so I may be wrong.

    Ew. Thank you for clearing the “relieved himself” point…my immediate thought was OMG HE PEED THE BED? lol.

    And, yes, these smart bitches do know everything.

    The mother is not the person they have legal jurisdiction over, but the child.  And, yes!, they absolutely can and do take children away from the better non-native american parent pretty regularly.  I have a friend whose daughter recently died as a result.  He got a girl pregnant.  She left him before their daughter was born.  He had never lived on the reservation, and neither did she until he started wanting their daughter.  Despite the fact that she was living with a man previously convicted of domestic violence, did drugs, and had no job, he was STILL having to fight her for his daughter and was loosing.  Unfortunately, the man she was living with slammed the little girl’s head into the floor repeatedly, then waited a day to take her to the hospital.

    I read this in the original Erin St. Clair and then years later I saw the Sandra Brown re-release and picked it up because it sounded like the book it I had read so many years before.

    My favorite scene is when the sheriff shows up in the bar they stop at and he kisses her for a long, long time as a way to hide his face until the sheriff leaves.
