Classic & Old School > Old Bodice Ripper - Read in High School

This is driving me crazy. I am trying to remember the name of an old romance novel where the heroine chooses to marry the one man her parents don't like (I believe his name was William). He ends up raping her on their wedding night then takes her away to his home. On the way, there is a ship wreck or pirates attack and she ends up stranded on an island with the hero. She somehow makes it back to her husband's home but is pregnant with the hero's child. Her husband rapes and tortures her and when the baby is born, he tells her it died. One of the servants eventually brings the baby to her and helps her escape through a swamp(?). I can't remember anything about the book after that.

Can anyone please help? THANKS!
