This HaBO is from Amy, who is looking for (what sounds like) an older contemporary, possibly category, romance:
There isn’t very much that I remember of this book but it was one of the first romances that I read and I kept it hidden under my bed.
The hero and heroine meet at a party at his house, and have sex in his basement where he makes jewelry. The hero’s mother is a B movie actress.
That’s pretty much all I remember! Any guesses? Thank you!
I feel like a jewelry-making hero is rather distinct!
