Anyone, anyone?

Guys, I’m trying to remember the title of a book I read years ago and for the life of me I can’t locate this book anywhere.

These are the very sketchy and highly questionable details that I remember:

Hero: I think last name Lazlo, but it could’ve been anything from Rodriguez to Potter. His family owned either a jewelry store or a big company that manufactured something (glass?). He met the heroine at a party in his house (or his parents?).

Heroine: Her father worked for the hero’s father but had embezzled money from them or something so hero forced her to marry him to save her father from going to jail.

Other stuff: At some point they go to Venice (I think he cheats on her there?). There’s a skinny doctor the heroine wanted to marry. Heroine’s mother was blind (deaf?)? I think hero forces himself on heroine at some point.

Don’t look so confused; this sounds convoluted and strange to me too LOL.

Trollop, is it romance? Historical fiction? I don't think I've read such a book :)

Actually, I'm trying to get stuff together for Harlot's xmas present. I am sure that's a book she'll love *g*

It's a contemporary or er historical cause it was from the 70's-80's LOL Dunno it was an old little book.

He cheats on her? What a cad!

Sorry I have no darn clue... for good reason, methinks. :)

But to Trollop and Harlot: you guys ought to give the book "The Secret History of the Pink Carnation" a try. I read it and really enjoyed it. (Just a suggestion in case you guys are running out of things to read... heaven forbid..)

Pink Carnation? I bought that book because the cover was pretty. Now I gag each time I see it. Scarlet Pimpernel? What a laugh!

Thats easy. Just go back to serial romances section around 80s, and I am sure you'll find quite a few books like that being sold.

I'm laughing at how ridiculous this plot is. A cheater and a rapist? Sounds like a bodice-ripper romance crossed with Judith Krantz to me.
