S-HaBo-Day: He Calls Them All “Meg”

Comic! Eyebrows! Help a Bitch Out! This email comes from Laura Hunsaker, who seeks an old category romance: 

Ok so I read this book back in the early 90s and I don't remember the title or author.

It was either a Harlequin or Silhouette and the heroine's name was Meg. She was a maid in this lord's house and I remember a scene where she fought off the advances of a guest with a fire place poker.

It turned out she was Lady Meg. A stipulation of her inheritance was she work as a maid for 6 months, without divulging her station so she could better appreciate Those who depended on her.

At the end, the hero is drunk and miserable, banging prostitutes and calling them Meg. Then he sees her and tells her not to pretend to be a lady-she could get in trouble. Then her secret is revealed and they live happily ever after.

Nothing more romantic than banging prostitues and using his lost love's name. I'm telling you, do not mistreat the Magic Hoo-Hah, for that way lies complete batshit insanity. Do you remember this book?

    I think you’re looking for “Lady Megan’s Masquerade” by Cindy Holbrook.

    Hope I was right.

    They also used the “smitten with her, so imagining her when banging prostitutes” in the Black Lace novel DARKER THAN LOVE.  It’s that weird mix of knowing she’s the one but still not giving up the several in the meantime.  I’m glad it appears so infrequently.

    I love HaBo days.  I enjoy reading the comments as much as trying to remember if I’ve read the book.  Half the time I pick up a book from one of the guesses.  Thanks for my first laugh on a Saturday.

    It is Lady Megan’s Masquerade by Cindy Holbrook. It’s a Zebra Regency Romance, from 1989. It’s one of my favorite books, one of those I will never get rid of.

    It was a Zebra? I may pick this up. The Zebras from that time were always full of hot crazy WTF action.
