S-HaBO-Day: Curious Goings On in the Wagon

Help a Bitch Out!E is looking for a historical she read back in the 90's that contains some … memorable wagon action. 

I'm looking for a historical romance that was written in the early to mid-90's, during the height of romances “Indian” captive phase.

The book was about a woman who was, of course, a captive and lived with her captors for a period of time. During this time she gets pregnant. She may have been rescued, her and her child and she was either married off to the hero or something along those lines. The hero is half Native and if I'm not wrong in the military.

There's a scene that sticks out in my mind because it was quite…different. (Or at least it was to a 16 year old who was sneaking and reading romance during her AP English classes) The hero, heroine and baby are traveling to the hero's family home (I think) in a wagon and the heroine is breastfeeding. I think she was shy or worried about breast feeding and her body's reaction or something like that. Well one thing leads to another, the next thing we know the hero is under her skirts and we discover he's a very cunning linguist. WHILE she's breast feeding.

I'm almost half convinced the premise is something my sixteen year old mind made up, but I'm really hoping it wasn't. Sound familiar to anyone?

I can't help thinking it would have been even MORE BETTER if they'd been on horseback at the time, but that's probably a different book. Do you recall this book?

    Wow. That’s a scene I’ve never read before. I’m interested in this now; just for that breastfeeding scene. It sounds like it has to be read to be believed.

    I know Victoria Thompson’s Winds of Promise has a heroine who was captured by Comanche Indians and has a half-Comanche baby right before the hero (who is a rancher) marries her. I haven’t read it so I can’t say for sure, esp about that very different sex scene

    So… Who was driving the wagon?

    Hmmm…. Would I sound completely vanilla if I said that I’m creeped out by the idea? Those were two very compartmentalized parts of my corporeal life—and I think I like it that way….

    OH MY GOD I HAVE READ THIS BOOK! It was a favorite of mine at the time, though the breastfeeding while sexing squicked me. I could have sworn it was Georgina Gentry, but when I looked her up on Amazon, I didn’t see it. So, I guess we have her ruled out? I think the heroine’s name was Sarah. So I have been absolutely no help, except to say that no one was driving the wagon, Pam. They were letting the horses rest.

    @Elle – Dear Elle,

    I love you. And I am almost sure you are right. You rock so very hardcore. Thank you so very much. Once again, you rock.

    A grateful Emma Petersen

    @Jennifer Armintrout – Oh my glob, I am so glad I’m not the only one who read this book. I thought my over active teenage (and slightly pervy) brain made it up.

    @Christine Alexander – I think Elle’s right, I think it was Victoria Thompson’s Winds of Promise and I’m *really* hoping it’s available on Kindle.

    @Ellielu – No, not at all. I think it’s a very specific “fetish” that appeals to certain people.

    @Smart Bitches – Huzzah! Thanks for helping a bitch out ladies! Seriously, you rooooock! (p.s. I’ve always thought heroes & heroines having sex on a horse’s back was rather inconsiderate. They totally disregard the poor innocent bystander horse’s feelings. How would they feel if they were minding their own business, someone just came and started having sex on them. Okay, depending on the hero/heroine they may like it, but that doesn’t mean that the horse does.)

    @Pam G – From what I remember, he had stopped the wagon.

    I now have the country song “Sin Wagon” stuck in my head.

    “and we discover he’s a very cunning linguist” Haha! Well – that goes without saying. He IS a romance hero, correct?

    That is one badass old school cover! The colors. The shiny letters. The one-legged heroine in a trashy Indian halloween costume humping the hero. The rancher hero in track pants with a saber. There’s even “fiery passion”. Add in lactating wagon sex and how can this be anything but a winner?

    @SusannaG – LOL I’m sorry?

    @Beccah W. – Definitely!

    @Liz H- I ordered a copy. I have no idea when it will get here. I haven’t been this excited about ordering a book in a while.
