This request comes from Aurora, who remembers a few things about a book, and these things are all… well, just read on:
On the library shelves between Judith Krantz and Anne McCaffrey lies a historical romance set in Scotland. The hero and heroine were childhood enemies of a fierce and devilish nature, so horrible that the youthful feud culminated in her tying a jar of bees? wasps? to his family jewels (which supposedly results in his sterility, but I think he does end up having a baby with the heroine.)
The heroine comes back to the homeplace and of course they fall in angsty soulmate love. There was a lurid inside cover, but I can't for the life of me recall their names or anything else…
Wow. She'd have to do some serious groveling for that one. Anyone recall this book?
