Beijing Doll
I think that this book was challenged because it explores sexuality very openly from a culture that is quite conservative.

CoversGirl, Australia
Lady Chatterley's Lover
The sex, obviously. But also because the heroine had the temerity to have an affair with a mere servant. (Can't go upsetting the class system, now can we?)
