This HaBO request is from Jillian, who is looking for this historical romance:
Here is what I know:
(I was a teen when I read this book so most of what I remember is about the sex)
– It is a historical romance that I read in the early 2000s, but based on the content and style my guess is it was published in the 80s or early 90s.
– The two main locations I remember are the Hero’s ship (I believe a merchant ship) and a sheikh’s palace where his harem is kept.
– The hero is a boat captain or pirate that gave me major Viking vibes but he could just be tall and have long blonde hair.
– The hero has a dick so large that sex workers refuse to sleep with him.
– The heroine is a virgin and someone of noble birth.
– I may be confusing this with another book, but I believe the hero kidnaps the heroine in retaliation for something her father did to the hero’s family.
– The heroine is either sold or given or kidnapped at some point after being with the hero on his ship and ends up part of a sheikh’s harem.
– She never has sex with the sheikh and I think we rarely if ever see him but she does learn a lot about sex and her body from the other women in the harem.
– Once the heroine is back with the hero on his ship (he may have rescued her or maybe she escaped the harem?) she decides she wants to sleep with the hero, but his dick is so large that he doesn’t want to hurt her. But now she has her new found sexual knowledge and a set of ornate dildos in increasing sizes. The hero and heroine have a lot of everything but penetration sex till she is ready to handle him.
– In the end I believe the hero has a change of heart and returns the heroine to her home and she chooses him, but I’m not sure if I’ve got the wrong book with this ending.
Wow wow wow wow.
