Help Find this book? Does anyone know?
« on: April 11, 2012, 02:29 AM »

I have read this book as a teen, some 15 years ago, and for the love of God, can't remember the name of the book or the names of the characters. It's always stayed in my memory as that was my first romantic novel and something I want to read just to relive those days. I would hide under the table to read such books, as the covers were scandalizing and of the fear of being caught reading them.

I am not sure of the entire plot, but  I recall is this passionate lovemaking scene penned by the author, about the actress tying the hero to the bed, and entering his chambers to give him a wash, and how; he has already undone the ropes tied, but does not disclose this. The actress, thinks that as he is tied, and to teach him, a lesson starts making love with him, but what starts as a plan to teach him a lesson ends up being a total ravishment  of the heroine. If I am not mistaken this was either to do with being kidnapped and asked to work on the ship by the hero to earn her passageway, or it was to do with taking revenge. 

It's been years now, and I have tried searching it through different web search but unfortunately, am unable to trace or get the name of the book, and I am really keen on reading it once again.

I would really appreciate, if anyone could help with the title of this book.

Thank you.

{edit} Book title is: Captive of My Desire by Johanna Lindsey

Hey Liexo,

Thanks for your prompt response. Just that I am desperate, and its irks me that I can't recall the names of the characters nor the title of the book. As its the first ever romance novel i read, I am anxious to lay my hands of it. But, I also know i am shooting in the air :)

You never know. You might be lucky.  8) 8)
I'm new around here but I have noticed that the members new lots of things about authors and books, it's actually quite amazing.
As for myself, I had a few books that I could have shared, but my computer broke down two months ago and everything's got lost.  :'(    It's not as frustrating as looking for a book you don't recall a lot about, but it's still very annoying. >:(
Good luck with that book of yours.  ;)

It's really awesome to know, how people here know so much about books, authors. I had posted this query on another thread, and someone replied. The book name is captive of my desire by Johanna Lindsey.  I am so looking forward to reading it again.

What kind of books do you prefer reading? I have a library of pdfs and if you send me the name of author or books you are looking for, I am happy to share, If I have those in my library.

Told you, they're just great !

I read everything that comes near me, except biographies, sports and politics.
Right now I' looking for C.E.Murphy's Walker Papers #6. I found the other ones, but didn't come across that one yet.
I Have some of Johanna Lindsey's books at home, but the paper ones. I liked her series about the Malory Family. I thought it was great so I got some more books from her here.
I don't really know the authors, usually when I buy a book, i just read the summary plot...   ::)

I checked and realized that I have the book you were talking about, but I don't recall this scene. Oooops. Yeah, that's a good book.
