  • Sure. It was my Mom's favorite as a teen/twenty-something and she passed it on to me when I was "old enough". It's a bit smutty, but not pornographic.

    It's "A Rose In Winter" by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss. It's about a girl whose Dad, in desperate need for money to cover gambling debts, sells her on the block to the highest bidder. She's purchased by a deformed Lord who terrifies her.
    And that's all I'm sayin.

    Although I'm lovin' the book I'm reading right now, "Anna Karenina" by Leo Tolstoy. It's a Russian novel about a woman who enters into an affair. Well, it's MUCH more complicated than that, and there are at least a dozen other characters, but she's the main one.

  • I tend to be a person who re-reads the same book over and over again.... I always come back to "the hot zone", "small sacrifices" and anything by dave pelzer

  • My favorites: Flowers in the Attic...If I explain any of it, it will blow the story. LOL

    Flowers for Algernon: About a mentally slow man and how he received a surgery to make him "normal" in intelligence.

    The Handmaiden's tale: Set in the future, yet, it's like olden times...craziness.

  • the Twilight Series, it is THE best romance novel ever! you have to let yourself get into it without out thinking it's a teenie-bopper book, it has very adult situations. when you read it, it's like so passionate. why can't all men be so...AMAZING/DREAMY! my dh is awesome, but i'm definately a team edward!
