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?
