Catherine is looking for a book she read years ago – and I want to know where this cart full of books is, because I have a few dozen to donate!
I got the first romance novel I ever read from the hospital library cart when I was 8 or 9 and hospitalized for asthma for a couple of days. It was some 70s type book, probably a Harlequin or a Silhouette, with a dark-haired woman in a filmy white nightgown standing on the cover with the hero.
The plot involved the rich hero nearly running her down with his car, deciding to “apologize” by marrying her on his deathbed so she can inherit his money, and then inexplicably recovering.
Why he didn't just tell his lawyers to cut her a nice check for her inconvenience I have no idea. Maybe he didn't have a lawyer.
The hero's glamorous ex girlfriend was lurking around a bit and I don't think there was much sex, if there was any at all.
Evil ex! Rich man without good legal advice! A PERFECT STORM! Do you recall this book?
