I read this book many years ago and I always thought it was called Lion's Lady by Julie Garwood. I just read the description for that book and realized it wasn't the one I thought. My memories are kind of vague but I do recall the hero met the heroine...fell in love... and brought her back to his home. I think she was raised by Indians and he brought her back to. I believe, England. I know that doesn't help at all but there is one part that I thought was laugh out loud funny (very unusual for me) and I am hoping someone will recognize it. The hero is standing inside while she is outside hiding from all his guests at what I think is their wedding. The hero's friend asks him "So which one is your bride?". The hero replies, "The one eating the leaf."

Sound familiar to anyone? ::Sigh:: I know, it's hopeless.

 

Edited because it's late and I can't think straight.

I read a book with a similar plot, though I don't remember that scene, so it might not be the same. It was Linda Lael Miller, I think? I'll see if I can find it.

Well, googling isn't helping. It's probably not the same book, because I don't think he was in love with her.

It could be her. I think it was a popular author. What is the website that you can put in a scenario and it will give you book choices?

You might could try Fiction DB.

Your first instinct was right - it is Lyon's Lady by Garwood.  She was raised by Indians but they met in England.

The actual passage (page 210-211 - yes I looked it up on Amazon) is:

"Sir, which one is Princess Christina?"

"The blond headed one."

"Which blond headed one?"

"The one eating the shrubs."

Thanks so much, Kerry. The description I read didn't sound at all like it. I still love that passage. While I am posting, does anyone have this on their bookshelf?  I'm going to order it anyway, so I'd love to get it from someone here.

Yes, I remember that scene from Lyon's Lady, one of my favorite Garwoods.  Can't help you Willa, haven't read many of her books.
