This HaBO comes from Malca, who is hoping to find this extremely steamy historical romance: Well, when I was a teenager, my mom took a book away from me and now that I’m in my 30s, I’m curious to finish it! It was a historical romance – I want to say Zebra, but I’m not sure – and it was set in the Regency, but it was not published as a Regency romance. It was a thicker book. I think the spine was white. Unfortunately the only thing I remember is the scene that caused the book to be taken away: the villain does something kinky with his female minion where he ties a rope into a series of knots, shoves them inside her, and then penetrates her repeatedly as she scoots backwards up the stairs. It seems like it should be a fairly unique scene. Though I don’t remember the plot, I do remember enjoying the book up until that point, and I’d really like to give it another try if I can find it! It will have been published pre-2007 I think. I’d guess in the 90s or early 2000s. Well that certainly is something.

This HaBO request is from Robin, who is looking for this contemporary romance: This has been driving me crazy. It’s an older book, maybe a series book. It’s about a woman who grew up with an abusive father. Now she owns a woman run advertising company and works mostly with women clients. A man hires the firm and wants her to handle an account. Then he wants to date her. He is persistent until he breaks through and begins to discover the past events that affect her. I want to say it’s old Barbara Delinsky or Sandra Brown. Ring any bells?

Last month, Sarah post some great bookish items and jewelry from her Etsy wishlist. I immediately sent her a message about how vastly different our wishlist items are.
