Book was Solved. The title of the book Passion's Slave by Kay McMahon. Thank you to everyone for all your comments and suggestions.
I have been reading historical romance novels for over 25 years, and I feel the novels that were published in the 1980's and early 1990's were much better than today's historical romance novels. I think the characters were more stronger, and the plot lines were better.
I am looking for a particular novel that I read in the 1980's and I would greatly appreciate it if anyone can provide me with the title and author of the book. The plot of the novel is about a servant/slave that is working on a plantation and the hero is the plantation owner and one day he either knocks her down, says something unkind or something like that, but whatever it is that he does angers her so much that she turns around and hits him (socks him good) not knowing that he is the owner of the plantation, and she does this in front of the other workers. Of course the plantation owner becomes enraged and has to save face so he mulls over her punishment and decides to have her stripped (top part only) naked and whipped in front of everyone. Of course, he is so enamored of her beauty and spirit, and he feels bad about having her whipped that he decides to move her to the house to work as a maid. In one scene, she is cleaning his room and he walks in on her and proceeds to have his way with her against her wishes. He does this several times troughout the novel. I wish I could remember more about the plot but I can't put hopefully, I've given enough information to spark a memory in someone about the title and author of this story.
Also, I'm looking for recommendations of other novels written in the 1980's and early 1990's. I have ready so many novels during that time but I can't remember a lot of the titles only plot lines. All of my books were passed down to other family members to read never to be seen or read by me again. (I did learn my lesson about giving books to family members, I just don't give them the ones I really love anymore because I never get them back), and like everyone else, I do like to reread the books I love.
Lately, I have been disappointed in the historical romance novels that are written today. I feel that they are very predictable and typical and I haven't read anything that I have really liked that has been published this year, I've just been incredibly disappointed. I find myself now shopping for books in used bookstores, thrift stores, and online looking for books written during the 1980's and early 90's.
I am very thankful to anyone that can provide any information on the novel and give me any book recommendations.
