The Flame And The Flower – Kathleen Woodiwiss

TheFlameAndTheFlowerThis is the original bodice-ripper; the book that birthed a genre.  Brandon takes Heather’s innocence and marries her when she gets pregnant, although neither of them is happy about the situation.  Starting married life as virtual strangers, they must contend with their rocky relationship, an insanely jealous fiancée, extortion and ultimately, murder.  Whew.  I don’t read romance as much as I used to, although I do have a few favorite authors I continue to follow, but homage must be paid to the woman who started it all and I’m not afraid to say so!
