HaBO Time! When you can remember bits and pieces of a scene, but not the author or title, we're here to help. Because, well, the Bitchery pretty much knows everything. Today's request is from M, who writes:
Firstly,I'd like to say I love your site and I apologize for any mistakes I make. Bear with me, English is not my first language.
This is the first time I contact you and I really hope you can help me!
I read a book a while ago but I can't remember the title or the author and it's driving me crazy! I remember that the heroes were adversaries. She is an English widow who was married to a much older man that was her mentor in the business world, but never was intimate with him so she was still a virgin.
He was Greek and,of course, very rich. Physically she is blonde(at some point she was described as a golden statue,if i remember correctly) and he was dark haired. I don't remember how or why but they decide to marry. She tries to buy a white wedding dress in Paris but he goes behind her back and changes her order because he thinks that a widow should not wear white at her wedding.
They marry on a Greek island that was either his or the place where he was born. She goes along with the wedding dress change because she has no other option,but is very dissapointed. After the reception he gets drunk and consumates the marriage.
After so many dissapointments,she goes to the beach in the morning to think but to reach it she has to take a dangerous trail. She falls and is trapped uder some rocks but gets rescued and is later recovered to a hospital. He regrets his treatment of her but she wants nothing to do with him. His mother comes to see her and convinces her to forgive him. That's it! Thank you for any help you might give me!
I hope this book is called “The Hero Groveled LIKE DAMN FOR HOURS.” But I bet it's not. Do you recognize this book?
