Marie says:

"I don't remember anything at all except that the hero made fun of the heroine for wanting a poetry spouting beau after her by making love to her while saying povocative quotes. I remember specifically :
“Licence my roving hands, and let them go
Before, behind, between, above, below.” by John Donne"




I hope you can help identify this book.


Thank you very much.


Jenny

Okay, I've found two options for you:

In Jennifer Crusie's Crazy for You, Nick was an English major and used poetry to woo the ladies. He uses the Donne poem quote while making love to the heroine, Quinn.

Another one that uses the poem is Libertine's Kiss by Judith James. Haven't read that one, but in Google Books it looks like the hero is quoting the poem to the heroine while he makes love to the heroine.

Yep. Sadly there were no male English majors during MY undergrad career who could quote Donne like that!
