I have no idea what book I'm looking for, when I read it or anything. I *think* it is a contemporary set novel. The only thing I remember for sure is a particular scene:

The h & H are having sex and he hurts her. He gets a little distraught because the heroine is in pain and he didn't take enough time to "ready" her.

The heroine remarks that she was a virgin and pain sometimes happens, to which he replies something like "___ (1st wife) didn't have a problem and she was a virgin and very responsive" and the heroine says to him "I guarantee ____ hadn't been a virgin for a while before she met you."

I think the hero was very inexperienced when he met ____ and she got pregnant, but I think it was with another guy's baby and she tricked the hero into marrying her by swearing she had been a virgin when they had sex, so he married her. I don't think the h & H were dating or anything when the story began, but she had a big crush.

Also, I think he had some big plans for college and such and they moved away. I don't remember what happened to the first wife - but I think she ran off and left the kid and divorced him, then he moved back home and reconnected with the heroine.

Thanks for any help!!

ETA: I'm almost 100% certain that this was a contemporary, possibly an erotica.

Hmm, the bit about the first woman tricking the hero reminds me of the film Circle of Friends, but I haven't read the novel it's based on, so I don't know if I'm even close.

Sounds kind of like NOT ANOTHER BAD DATE by Rachel Gibson.

Hero started dating heroine in college, while on a break from his previous girlfriend. Has to break up with heroine because girlfriend comes up pregnant. They reunite years later after the girlfriend turned wife dies. Though I'm pretty sure heroine is not a virgin when they sleep together again years later after the wife dies.

Thanks for the suggestions, but it is neither of these. I've never read Circle of Friends or anything by Rachel Gibson.

I've read this scene in ... some book.. several times over the years and I'm sure its a historical by a popular author. I was thinking maybe Julie Garwood (Rebellious Desire) or Liz Carlyle (Beauty Like the Knight) or one of the Julia Quinns. I haven't found it yet, but its driving me crazy and I'll eventually find it or remember.

Its just a matter of recalling all those books in which the new husband's previous wife was a ho.

Could it be something by Diana Palmer? I don't have any specific book in mind, but it sounds like some of the story lines I've read in her books before.

I know it isn't Garwood or Carlyle. The more I think about it the more I am convinced it is a contemporary novel.

I know some of Diana Palmer's have similar situations, but I know the love scenes in this book and some of the language was more explicit than her.

Thanks for the suggestions though.

Try Joan Johnstone's contemporary Blackthorne and Creed series. I stopped reading them some tome ago, but I recall a similar storyline running through them.

Thanks for the suggestions, but it isn't by those authors either - I already checked.

I took the liberty of posting your book search on Amazon's Romance message board.

Link: http://www.amazon.com/forum/romance/ref=cm_cd_tfp_ef_tft_tp?_encoding=UTF8&cdForum=FxM42D5QN2YZ1D&cdThread=Tx1UUAEISLLURHS

I know I read it too but I cannot place it despite going through my books.


Hopefully someone will recognize it.

Readers on Amazon's Romance message board suggest two historicals:

Autumn Lover by Elizabeth Lowell
The Velvet Promise by Jude Deveraux

Maybe Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase.


Sorry, I am not at home to check.


Happy reading if this is it.
