There’s a historical book written in the 80’s I think that I used to love and I don’t remember the name of the author or the title, but the plot line kind of went like this…An English lady somehow gets taken into a harem (No this isn’t the Sky O’Malley series or any by Beatrice Small), and she’s rescued by a mysterious guy with an Arabic sounding name, and he seduces her, yada yada, but it turns out to be an English Earl who was actually an ambassador. Actually, she might have been in India now that I think about it. And she might have been the daughter of a diplomat who’s father died while they were in India and this guy rescues her (the Earl) and he takes her back to England, and they get married. I think someone wants her dead because they thought she died in India because they stand to inherit her fortune. But this Earl she married is cunning and he saves her. And I clearly remember at the end of the book she gives birth to twins, a girl and a boy. The little girl she names Maryam. I think the boy twin was named Peter or it could have been the Earl’s name that was Peter. I do remember that name being mention in the book. I think it was a dark cover, maybe black or dark blue, but I’m pretty sure it was black. I really would like to find this book and put in my keeper stack because I really liked it.
Isn’t it sad that I remember little details like that, but can’t think of the name of the book. If anyone can tell me what that story is or who that author is, I’d really really appreciate it.
