Help A Bitch Out

HaBO: Bees and the Family Jewels

Help a Bitch OutThis 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…

Please help!

Wow. She'd have to do some serious groveling for that one. Anyone recall this book?

    Was it Arnette Lamb, Border Bride? That strikes a bell in my memory somehow.

    How did she manage to get it tied on there? “Hey, look over there.” “What? I don’t see anything. “Nope, but in the meantime, I’ve pulled your pants down (lifted your kilt?) and attached a jar of bees to your balls without you feeling a thing. Top that Houdini.”
    Someone needs to ID this book, because I need to read this.

    Captcha: numbers39- Counting the bees perhaps?

    OMG – the PW review on Amazon for Border Bride is hysterical. I might have to read a book where the heroine has “come-to-me sauce”.

    That’s got to be it, because I can’t imagine there are two books that have a girl opening a jar of wasps under a man’s toga (if there are, the second ought to be checked for plagiarism).

    Yay! I can’t remember to take my grocery list to the store, but I can remember bees in a toga in a romance novel! Though, come to think of it that would be far more memorable than yogurt, broccoli & cheez-its.

    But I didn’t remember the come-to-me sauce. (In the book or on the grocery list.)

    That’s two for two today—there must be titles! The Bitchery needs more peeresses!

    (your captcha is incredibly prescient: provide38 peeresses)

    Anyone else think of Nicholas Cage in the remake of “The Wicker Man” when they read that?
