Okay, here it goes...

Back in the early 90's I fell in love with a romance novel, but I cannot remember the title or the author.  It went something like this..

She was an accountant who loved to go to antique shops and estate sales on weekends.  She "purchaed" a bachlor for a charity-auction thingy and they spent their date sailing.  He had a cold and was loaded up on cold medicine, mixed with the free champagne and he was a bit out of it when the auction was closed.  Her boss wanted her to go to the auction-thingy because he was nervous about being bid on.  He was bid on by a woman and developed a nice relationship with her (I vaguely remember something about an aquarium he purchased for her.)  It was a modern day story, not historica.  I am almost positive it was published by Avon, but I am not sure.   I know it wasn't Harlequin or Silhouette.  It had a blue front cover of her on a sail boat, wearing a black and white striped top. 

If anyone is familiar with this book, or better yet HAS this book on their bookshelf, PLEASE let me know.  I would love to read this book again.  Also, if anyone has an idea about who may have published this novel, I would be grateful for any suggestions.

Purchasing him sounds familiar, but I can't remember what the name of the book was.  I've read BUNCHES of Zebra, Harlequin, and Silhouette romance books.  Did you ever read Zebra Pirate Romances? I read one once upon a time that was really good where her dad was a captain and she wound up with a guy who her dad had kidnapped.  Anyway, that book was a really good one...and I'm rambling! LOL!  I wish you luck though finding your book!  I know what it's like to go searching for a book so I wish you the best! :)
