Is there a book you read ages ago and loved, but canâ€™t remember the title and are dying to find it?
Great! Me too!
Today, in our first installment of Long Lost Loves, I will ask (No, beg!) you to dig deep into your memory banks and help a girlfriend out.
I read this novel as a young teen. It was my second single title romance. (The first was Shanna, but I read this one in the same weekend and am feeling nostalgic for it.)
Hereâ€™s what I know:
The cover had a swarthy dark-haired hero who looked more like a dirty thug than a hero.
The girl had white-blonde hair and (as I recall) iridescent green eye shadow. And her head was kinda hanging upside down while in his embrace (like we were looking down at her).
(Not that you could see it in the cover-art, but I recall she had green eyesâ€¦because I remember thinking, â€œWhy on earth would a green-eyed girl wear green eye shadow?â€ Browns, oranges, and bronzes to make greens popâ€¦anything but green, really. Duh!)
He often called her angel. They didnâ€™t know each otherâ€™s true identities.
Their â€œcute-meetâ€ involved him finding her sleeping nude on a beach. He took advantage of the situation, of course. And she, a virgin (of course) thought she was dreaming until it was too late. (Ah, the good old daysâ€¦)
I believe he was a pirate, but also a lord/spy working for the crown or something. She was a lady, but, of course, he presumed she was anything but.
Thatâ€™s all I remember.
