He worked for father-in-law. The man's wife was a paralytic, and at the end of the book, she leaves the husband for her nurse? If anybody could remember the title, I would appreciate. It has been bothering me about remembering the title. Hi Guys, I am new to this group, and I was hoping to get some help finding a book i read around It is basically about a temporary housekeeper or a helper who is 8 months pregnant, and you later find out that she is a virgin.

The owner of the house who is a businessman, ends up falling in love with her. I think in the scene that she tells the hero that she is a virgin is where she is getting made fun off by local boys, as she is young and seen as easy because she winds up pregnant. She is actually a surrogate for her sister and her husband, but both die in an accident leaving her alone.

To take care of herself and the child, she gets this temp job. I believe she is Italian. He also helps her give birth to the child in his house, which i think is a girl. The last scene is of them getting married, and she is walking down the aisle, looking at the baby and thinking about everything. I have been trying to recall this book for a long time but as it is one of the first ones I read, I don't remember more about it. I have looked through many book lists and themed lists to find it including all romance writers, romancewiki, and fictiondb.

I would really appreciate any help i get. I think the heroine has never been rich, and I am positive the setting is in the U. But thanks anyways. Let me know if any others come to your mind. Maybe this one? Myles Wellington still grieved over the loss of his young wife, but when he learned that her sister, Faith, was carrying his child, he felt the stirrings of life inside he'd believed he'd never feel again!

Faith had secretly agreed to help her sister give her husband this last gift, but she had her own reasons for wanting this child, wanting to give Myles something no one else could. She'd loved him for so long, had been so alone - until Myles insisted she live with him How could she share the same house with the man whose touch set her soul on fire, yet how could she resist grabbing at the chance fate had given her to have the only man she'd ever loved?. Myles wanted this child, but he was shocked to discover he wanted Faith even more. Exulting in the intense desires she aroused in him to protect, to possess, Myles struggled to break free of the past.

Could they put to rest their memories of the woman they'd both loved and build a future together? Sounds like the kind of plots they have. It could be presents, romance, or american romance. I just came across a special edition silhouette called An abundance of babies by Marie Ferrarella but it isnt the one, which is very similar! I am almost starting to feel like the book doesnt exist. Any of you feel that way while looking for a book? I was searching through vintageromances. You said you read the book in the early 's so I've only been looking for books in that time frame, but could it also have been published in the 's?

Also, is there anything you remember about the cover, such as color maybe? It is possible it was published in the late 90s. I was thinking the cover had yellow and blue on it Pregnant female butler 8-months along. The book summary doesn't mention surrogacy, but the term did show up two times when I searched for that term in Google Books. XD The heroine is a surrogate for her aunt and uncle though. This is it!!! Yea I had a feeling the summary wouldn't mention surrogacy, but I was wrong about the sister and husband.

Thank you so much! Once i saw the cover, I realized I have seen it before. Let me know if you need help finding a book, I'll be sure to return the favour. Hi guys i'am so glad to have found this place I have been looking for this Victorian romance about the hero being engaged since he was young by his father.

He falls in love with his newfound bride and so does she. But she tries to be more of a lady and so his best friend teaches her how to act in society while our hero is on a trip The sister in law is in a wheel chair and is trying to get rid of the heroine and also there are snipets of their past lives Sorry if it sounds confusing but I' ve been looking for this book forever! My name is Florecer and I am a new member of this group.

First let me answer the question of Nyah99, the post number 84 about the last novel: the description sounds like "The Shocking Lord Standon" by Louise Allen, and is part of the Revenhurst Saga. Here a leave the book description. He cannot honorably deny them, but he won't be forced into marriage. Encountering a respectable governess in scandalizing circumstances, Gareth demands her help—to make him entirely ineligible.

He educates the buttoned-up Miss Jessica Gifford in the courtesan's arts. But Gareth hasn't bargained on such an ardent, clever pupil—or on his passionate response to her! He wanted to cause a stir—it seems they are about to brew a scandal! The list the list in the correct order is: 1. Ravenhurst 6. Hurst 7.

Now is my turn to have a question. I am looking for a book whose name and author I can not remember. The plot was somthing like this: two sisters twins are abducted by a bandit. This man promises to free one of the sisters if the other promises to stay with him. One of them grants the motion and gradually discovers that the villain has a noble heart. I read the description when I was looking for other books to read, but never wrote down the data of this book to read next.

If any of you could tell me the name of the book or author, I am very grateful for your help. Okay, I read this book several years ago, and can't remember what the title or author is. Its a Regency romance. The main female lives in the slums of England. I don't really remember who the hero was, he was an earl or something i think, and he takes her in and makes her over. But near the end of the book I think they have a fight and she returns to the slums just as a cholera outbreak hits. She has a prostitute friend who dies and because she then catches cholera as well, she loses the baby she was pregnant with.

I don't know the book and really want to read it again. She is English but she grew up in the Paris slums. The Earl seeks her out for revenge complicated plot and then agrees to marry her back in England. They have a short lived blissful time but then have a big disagreement she learns the truth about him and she goes back to Paris and the slums. There is a cholera epidemic there after she leaves him in England. I think she did lose a baby, but I can't remember for sure.

It was a really good book. He has a scarred face and this is the last of a trilogy of brothers. Is this it? Woohoo, a success story! Yay for a happy ending! I never know these, which is weird because I've read so many romances. Hi,I m looking for a harlequin I read many many years ago. The heroine is english and visits her cousin who lives in a farm in France i think with her husband. The heroine also helps out in the farm. Her cousin tries to ruin everything she does around the farm -remember an incident where the heroine cooks soup for the farm workers and the cousin drops soap in it on purpose to ruin it.

The farm owner who is her cousin's brother in law is very prejudiced against her. I want to read it again! Can't believe it really! I ve been looking for this book for so long and you just found it right away! I ve got another one but I am afraid that's much harder to find since I remember so little of it It's all thanks to the person who runs the Vintage Romances website. She breaks each book down by keywords and I use that to help me look for your book.

I'm afraid the other book you are looking for is much harder since there isn't a lot of information to set it apart from any other medical romance, but I will try.

Hi everyone I was wondering if you can help me figure out the title of this book I read a little over a year ago It has to do with a wealthy girl who runs away from home to find herself in the streets. She becomes friends with a group or a "gang" of pickpockets. I distinctly remember that most of them were good kids expect for one of them who I believe was named Jack? I'm not quite so sure. There was also a character which was a small boy who grew fond of this girl.

She would read to them every night. She also fell in love with the leader of the "gang". The mean boy Jack tried to force himself on her and was shunned from the group. Jack teams up with an evil man who is the leader of a rival pickpocket gang and they try to take them out. By this time the girls older brother finds her and takes her back to her rich lifestyle.

Can anyone help me? Theres also a sequel to that book. It is set later when the girl is a young lady and she meets again with the kid she fell in love with and they have an affair and blah blah you know the rest haha. Also there's a book really similar to If You Deceive by Kresley Cole same time period I believe except: -Theres a poor girl who works at a bar and she meets this handsome lord. Anyways something happens that she goes back to where she lived neighborhood and gets herself really sick.

The lord comes to find her and her prostitute friend tells him that she died and was in this building where they keep the bodies. He finds her on the table and she was bleeding she had lost the babe and she recuperates and they live happily ever after I also believe he was extremely rich and he left his rather luxurious home to live downtown paris or another setting because something happened In any case, that's what I've been looking into.

Most of them seem to be doctor-nurse romances, but I couldn't find a nurse-patient book that fits your description. It's harder with older books because sometimes there isn't a description available, the description is short, or the description is vague. Would you like to do search on your own? Starlight genie - thank you so much for your help, I will try this website you mentioned!

I was wondering if you could help me figure out what book this is it has be bugging me for ever not being able to figure it out! I remember very little about the book. I can't remember the title, author or even the character's names since its been a while since I read it The children aren't her own. The kids were given up by their parents, because they were poor. Everyone is under the impression that the husband is kind by taking in these poor kids, but in reality he abuses them.

I think he might've even been a pedophile? No one knows his secret except the heroine. But she escapes with these children and tries to go back and save the rest of them. I don't quite remember how she meets the hero of the story, but I think he's titled as well and he tries to help out the heroine by formulating a plan since her husband is well-known. Random facts I remember about from this book is that the heroine was also abused by her husband and I think punished by being put in a cage? Hope that made sense Thanks in advance! Hello all new here as well. I know a knight inherits land but when he gets there its been razed.

The cover was all reds with a girl leaning backwards in a beautiful gown with a man holding her i think but i might be blending stories Thank you! Hi klkeefe, I think I read something like that not to long ago though it wasn't medieval but more Regency. But it rings a bell. Not sure if I'm not mixing up two books though. It sounds a little like Fairest of them All by Theresa Medeiros, but I don't think the plot points all match up. The heroine is a beauty in disguise, but I don't remember the land being razed. I have been searching for a contemporary romance novel for years.

The heroine thinks she is dating a guy but he is an FBI agent? I believe she is a secretary and it looks as if her boss is involved in baby smuggling or some other type of illegal activity. She is taken down to the police station, in front of everyone at work I believe and the young brash agent along with his older much more mature partner question her for hours. The brash agent even scares her by mentioning having to go into witness protection. They are apparently holding her long enough so they can install a wire tap in her house.

When she meets up with him the hero who wants revenge against this man kidnaps her and gets shot in the process. I think the guy was going to kill her after she gave him the information. They hole up in a hotel for a while, he is a widower and his ex-wife was a supermodel? Remember her having to wear some of her clothing and then they made out on the balcony but he gets distracted when he sees the magazine she was reading which has the dead wives face on it.

They fall in love and get together for the first time while out dancing one night. I also believe she is a red head and is described as making a transition as the story goes on gaining confident and not appearing as mousy in looks anymore. Sorry for the long post guys, this book has been driving me crazy! Hi everyone. I think it was a Harlequin romance but I'm not positive. Here is what it's about: The book starts in the past when the main female character's father had just died. Her best friend's brother - whom she had a crush on as a child - asks her to marry him as a friend and move away - I think to the middle east, maybe Dubai?

Anyway, the female character was a librarian at home but when they move away, he is busy working in the construction business, so she begins writing. She becomes a very popular crime writer while they are away - unbeknownst to him. Then his father has a heart attack and they must come home - I'm thinking about 3 yrs later. While back home they must act like an actual couple - so they have to sleep in the same room and of course things begin to change.

While home he is asked to take over his father's company, and he also finds out about her writing accomplishments - and of course they start to have a relationship. Does this sound familiar to anyone??? Hope someone can help! I'm hoping someone will be able to help me find a book that I read in the late 80's or early 90's The male was wrongly sent to serve out a sentence in the penal colony. There is a ship with a mate named Toby. Female is Elyse I think. The story progresses with bits and pieces of past lives of the man and woman and how they are trying to find their way to each other.

Part of the story is about white roses and red roses and what they stand for. Either stained glass or paintings in the manor house sparks a memory for Elyse. It was a great book I read as a teenager. My mom cleaned out my hoards of romance novels years ago. I have tried searching on-line.

It's tough not remembering the title,author or even the characters names. Does this sound familiar to anyone???? Later as an adult he meets up with his childhood friend, who is the heroine of the book. Hello, another new member : I am so glad I found this! It is a regency romance and the heroine for some reason disguises herself as a footman? He goes to extremes to keep her safe, even almost killing her because a fire breaks out while she is locked in her room. He becomes very close to the heroine and has a strange attraction to her strange because he doesn't know she is female and he is a known skirt chaser.

I also really remember that her gender is revealed during a fencing match between the two of them. One other thing was that during a dinner, she was sitting next to him after being revealed as a woman and he took advantage of the fact she was wearing pants if you get my drift? Maybe she was pretending to be another nobleman? I really wish I could remember more! I'd appreciate it if anyone can think of any books this could possibly be : Linden. She's disguised as a nobleman, not a footman, but I really think this is it! I know it's something that I have read. Absolutely Duchess By Night.

Hi there. New to this group and plagued with title of book i read in the late 80's early 90's. Set in California I believe Heroine called Mel finds she has improbably only a few months of fertility left to her. Sets out to seduce someone, fails and then asks her brother's best friend also her best friend who lives nearby. He finally accepts the challenge and things get going to make her pregnant.

This was quite a witty story. Finally she has twins and marries the guy. Sorry forget the guys name but the jerk of a brother was Donny. Maybe The Stud by Barbara Delinsky. It was something like that but I'm not sure about the brother and twins. No that does not sound right. Sorry but the title is just ticking away under my consciousness and I am sure I will recognise it I'm looking for a book I read back in the late 80's.

I think it was on a plantation in the carribean or Bermuda. The heroine and hero were in love, but the heroin was kidnapped or got lost and lost her memory and the villan made her believe she was his wife. Hello I am looking for An American historical not really a western. The heroine is a "plain" school teacher for a small town. The he is a investigator with a gorgeous partner that everyone thinks solves all the cases but its really him he is seen as the slacker. He is caught in the her house overnight and they are forced into marriage.

While looking into cattle murders for her bestfriends fathers ranch. Is sent to the hospital. He starts feeling sorry for himself and never wants to se her again. She moves close to the hospital and becomes an architect building him a house with rails that he can get around in. In the end they are seen to have a small son. I'm looking for a book that I believe is Historical, but I'm not completely sure. If I'm not mistaken, at one point the heroine buries something she was reading because her uncle would take it away from her if he saw it.

I am hoping you can help me track down a historical romance book. The female character starts out at a convent which her brother placed her in for punishment in not following his orders. I think he wanted her to marry someone. She was then kidnapped by the main male character, enemy of her brother, where in the process she was cut by a knife in her leg by her guards. She remained loyal to her brother throughout the book even though everyone tries to convince her otherwise.

I think the brother had six fingers on one hand I really hope someone can help me with this, since I can't seem to get it out of my head and I'm driving myself crazy. I read a book in probably early to mid 90's, contemporary romance. The heroine is a secretary for a law firm, barely making ends meet, raising 2 younger brothers and taking care of a sick grandfather. The hero is a lawyer, maybe state attorney, he's wealthy.

Typical story line they go out, she gets pregnant, he finds out and tries to "do the right thing" she, of course, is too proud to take the help. Anyway, it all ends happily ever after but to save my life I can't remember the name of the book. Any of this sound familiar?? I was absolutely thrilled to come across this, and appreciate any help that I can get.

A couple of year's ago, I read a book thatwas, for the most part, set at the turn of the 20th century I think Somehow, a modern day girl ended up switching bodies with a girl from the era the modern girl being nicely adventurous and the historical girl a complete witch. Regardless, the once-modern-now-stuck-in-the-past-heroine falls in love with two brothers, who were the results of a similar attachment between their mutual mother and different fathers.

If any of you remember such a novel, I would greatly appreciate some direction! Thanks a bunch! Is that it? Z Mar 30, , pm. There are these 2 historical romance novels that i cant remember the name of and its driving me crazy!! The 1st one is about the hero marrying a pickpocket off the streets of london just to get back at his father and then dumps her there. I think he was drunk or something and she tries to rob him and his friend and he catches her and forces her to marry her.

Shes actually suppose to be an aristrocat who got kidnapped when she was young. I remember then the heros father teaching her how to be a lady and then launching her into society and shes all beautiful and witty and successful. The hero falls for her without realising shes his wife and i remember how she kept visiting the streets to feed some orphans or something and the hero meets her there again asking for a divorce or something along the lines :S The 2nd book is about this girl who runs her own estate and shes yound an spirited and loves her home more than anything.

I remember in the book she travels to his house disguised as a boy and tried to kill him with a knife so that she can have her estate back. I think her name was "kit" in the book. When the hero realises shes his ward he sends her off to school for young ladies. When she gets back shes all beutiful n stuff and i think they fall in love but the hero has his doubts that she loves the estate more than him :S Anyway if someone can please tell me the names of these books i would be eternally grateful!!

Z Mar 31, , am. Sorry it's kind of fuzzy. I have been trying to remember the name of this book for a little while. I read it a few years ago. It is a historical romance set in England and this girl is forced to marry a man from close to or in Scotland I think. I know that on their way to his home after they are married they have to stop at this fort where she is almost raped. She hates it where he lives but somehow learns to love him. I can't remember why but she ends up leaving and going back to her parents house towards the end of the book.

She finds out after she gets there that shes pregnant. The man shows back up to get her right as she goes into labor in the garden. That is all I remember and I hope someone can help me figure out what this book is. I know I have the book somewhere but in moving three times in two years it is missing and I can't have my husband help me look if we don't know what to look for.

Thanks so much. There's a storm or something, and both end up having to stay in the house for the duration of the project. Of course, they fall back in love during their time in the house. I think there was also something about their unborn babies casting a spell to make them fall in love - it might have been part of a matchmaking babies series. Sounds weird, but it was a really good book!

If anyone knows the title or the name of the series, please let me know :. I'm looking for a book I read years ago. It's a western historical romance. All I remember about the plot was that she's a red head that is indentured to a horrible individual. Afterward a group of men from their tribe show up and she falls for one of them.

I forget exactly what he is in the tribe, but I think he may have been some sort of medicine man or other well respected man in the tribe. Anyway, if it sounds familiar please let me know. It wasn't new, but I forget when it was published. Hello All! I am looking for a book I read at least 10 years ago.

I believe it was set in Victorian times and involved a young woman that stows away on a ship, but she is dressed as a boy so she is the servant to the male character. I think when they arrive at the mainland, she does something with the theater or is a singer. Anyway, as the story progresses, she ends up pregnant wich is unknown to her love interest, and she saves a small child from a burning pile of leaves which then causes her to have a miscarriage.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? Hi guys! I read the first few chapters of this book a few months ago and cannot remember the title or author and it's driving me nuts! Anyway i believe it's a historical romance set in old England sometime. And it's about a young lady who is poor and lives with her father on a rich man's property. She used to play with the masters son whe they were children but they grew apart and she sees him again now that they are older and they don't get along. She gets in some trouble money wise I think and he offers to help.

She makes a deal with him that once a week or something he gets to do whatever he wants with her for an increasing amount of time. So it starts with like 60 seconds and goes to 2 minutes and so on. That's all I remember.. I'm dying to read the rest! I'm just going to jump right in It's a contemporary romance She then is questioned at the police station and the hero, who she had strong feelings for, basically abandons her and leaves town. I remember the funeral scene where the heroine, no longer a suspect, tries to hold the hero's hand but he wouldn't let her.

Fast forward, the girl is grown up now, she stayed at the mansion where she was raised, taking care of the family business when the hero returns. The matriarch is now old and needs to decide who she wants to leave the bulk of her inheritance to - the hero grandson or heroine adopted or family friend's daughter who has been with her all this time or something like that. I remember something about the heroine still being haunted by the night she discovered the murder scene, she has nightmares and screams in her sleep. I think she also sleepwalks.

In the end the matriarch gives everything to the grandson. Can anyone help me figure this out? I know my description isn't very good but hopefully it will trigger someone's memory. Please help! Its a historical romance set during WW2. Consummation was a rape scene! They got a son,Luis. Both had lovers outside marriage and apparently the hero was spying on the Germans This book had many themes. At the end the hero's family was killed off one by one by his best friend,Armand who was also a German spy and also the heroine's lover?!

The heroine gets shot at the end and recovers while they run away from France. Dainty C on 47 I realize that it has been a long time since you posted this, but I think the book you are looking for is Shanna by Kathleen Woodiwiss. I sure hope that someone can help me with this one - it's been tickling the back of my mind for years!! This is a really old one, probably from or so. Two young brothers are on a ship, sailing from France to America, with their parents and sister.

In a storm, the younger brother is swept overboard and rescued by a couple who own a Southern plantation but could have no children of their own. The rest of the family is rescued together and end up settling in the North. Flash forward several years to the advent of the Civil War. The older brother Alex? Somehow the two women Southern belle and Northern secret agent meet and figure out that they are in love with the brothers separated so long ago. There was something hinky about the woman who rescued the younger boy and was scared that he would abandon her now that he found his real family, but I can't remember the details.

In any event, everyone lives happily ever after. I remember the book so fondly, but I have not a clue as to the title or the author. Dainty C from 47 Did you ever find your third book? Finally found it on another site. Hi all! I'm hoping someone can help me find this book! It's been awhile since I read it but I remember it was about a lost princess or aristocrat who was in danger and her maid ran away with her, the maid ended up dying and the girl was raised and worked at an inn, she had some kind of scar on her wrist that resembled a birthmark or something that only her family had or it was branded on her, I can't remember!

It's so frustrating! I can't remember names, I think the male character may be scarred and the castle or palace or whatever has "raven" in it, maybe. I know it sounds similar to "Once a Princess" but this is a different book. Please and thank you! I've just joined.

10 Rules in marriage (Audio)

Hello all! I am looking for a romance book that has the heroine as a blond model who was adopted and has a spoilt sister the natural child of the parents that talks her into using a condom filled with sperm to get pregnant from her sisters boyfriend as a surragate. The sister and the weak but funloving brother of the hero go off for a dirty weekend and have a car accident which kills the brother but not the spoilt sister. She goes into hiding but is believed dead. The heroine calls and announces that he should come and get his daughter to the complete surprise to the father.

She thinks he knows all about the child. The heroines sister told her she was infertile when she wasn't so she could get her hooks into the father by pretending she was the mother. The heroine and the hero marry and the sister shows up again but I can't remember the rest. Anyone know this book? It's driving me crazy!

I have another one set in medieval times and the hero is hated by his father because when he was born it killed his mother during childbirth. The father names his son Cane. The son is forced into a marriage with a blond girl who was destined for the church. When her brother is killed she has to give up the church and marry for her father to have heirs.

I may be mixing two books together but hopefully not. Hello, I just joined and am thrilled to have found this site. I know I read it sometime in the past years, but I don't know when it was published. I have the story stuck in my head, but for the life of me I cannot remember the title or the main characters names. This novel was set in the American West, most likely during the 19th century but I am not sure when exactly. The book starts off with an Eastern lady traveling out to her uncle's ranch in the west I think it was Texas? She was an eastern lady who came out to the ranch by train I think she was looking for a husband?

She has a conflicted relationship with the ranch foreman or maybe he was just a ranch hand. She eventually becomes pregnant by him. They visit her family in the East, but her relative maybe a mother or an aunt? She doesn't know how to cook, or clean the house, or iron his clothes without ruining them and he mocks her for it. He refuses to allow her to have servants or any household help as she struggles with her new responsibilities. Eventually she works herself into the ground trying to please him and she miscarries the baby that forced them to be married in the first place.

There is some sort of slimy bad character who wants to cheat them out of the profits and success of all their hard work, but they defend themselves against him.. Eventually they realize they are in love and the well is a success. I would appreciate any help or advice anyone can give me! It was a really powerful story. New to the group, I'm happy I found this site! I'm looking for the name and author of a book I read in the 's. I don't have a lot of details but I recall it was about a woman named Rose who fell in love with a highwayman.

The Rose sticks in my mind as a moniker she was given after being with the highwayman for awhile but not sure about that. Does this ring a bell with anyone? Thanks Much! The Toll-Gate is about a very tall woman living with her dying grandfather who's heir, a creepy cousin who with another creep are staying at her grandfathers. They have robbed a convoy of newly minted money with a new stamp, that they can't spend until the currency officially comes out.

Into this comes an a very large officer or former officer who likes adventure who stops at the toll-gate and finds a boy alone because his father has not returned to the toll-gate. His father is later found dead and a highwayman stops there occasionally to court the heroines governess or chaperone. The hero Jack I believe, falls for the granddaughter on sight. The get married at the grandfathers deathbed and the highwayman gets the reward for finding the gold.

The cousin and other guy don't survive. They have to save the reputation of the family by killing both the creepy cousin and his creepy friend! After reading through many of your posts I was reminded of authors I had forgotten about. I found my book. Wild Rose was the name given to the main female character. This was one of the first romance novels I'd ever read and I remember loving the story.

Post from Beck The first part sounds like Lady of the West by Linda Howard but the last part where she loses the baby doesn't. Beck maybe you should check out Diana Palmer. She writes about Texans all the time but she didn't start until the s. Ooh I am so glad I found this group! This is one of my favorite romance books but I can't remember the name. The heroine has beautiful long, red hair and she has amnesia. The hero claims her as his wife I think he's lying for some reason but she doesn't remember anything about herself..

The hero has a Native American best friend who is in love with a beautiful Native American girl who the hero saves from death. I think the mom's name might be Bertha. This is killing me! Hello, I am looking for the title of a book. It is the story an historic romance in the American West I think, she needs to marry and have a son to inherit her father's ranch well he died and that is stipulated in his will , so she marry a man that she freed from jail not sure about that , she was pregnant but miscarried because of a rival who poisoned her In the end she managed to keep the ranch as the will said she had to be expecting a boy, not to have a living child.

I am so excited to find this happy place! For the longest time I have wanted to find the first romance novel I ever read - sometime in the mid 90s - but I don't remember many details. I remember that the heroine came from an island and had been abused. She was rescued at sea by the hero's brother.

She can't remember much of her past. Somehow she is related to a wealthy family I think her grandfather is still alive and her dark past keeps resurfacing especially some very creepy guy. At one point, the hero thinks she has betrayed him to her family and becomes ruthlessly cruel. The hero becomes a successful owner of a ship construction company maybe even with her wealthy family. I still remember the last scene - where she goes to visit him at the docks and their son runs to him. If anyone has any idea, I would be so happy and so grateful!! New to group.

Looking for author of several romance books with a background theme of several women living together outside of the city in possible regency era England. They all must provide some form of income and they aren't allowed to pry into each others background. Each woman has their own book where the reader finds out about how she came to live with the other women, her background and of course finds love.

I remember one of the women is discovered by her husband who she ran away from right after her marriage when he comes to the home visiting with his friend who is married to one of the other women. They are both shocked to see the other one and he makes a strong demand for her to pack her things and be ready to go.

Of course her friend is afraid he might punish her and wants her husband to stop the forced departure. The Rarest Blooms series by Madeline Hunter. Hey, I am so excited to have found this group - I have been obsessing about finding this book and i hope someone can help me. I am looking for a book I read in mid 's. It was a regency or historical. He was going to humiliate him by selling her, but falls in love and marries her secretively. Key points: she was supposed to sleep on the floor but didn't because she has nightmares. He didn't soak English and she didn't speak his language so they used French to communicate.

He refused to beat her so he used sex as a threat to train her to be a slave. He called her Le fleur. The cousins were both female and one was given to a friend. Oh and I think she had an aversion to cuffs because she was tied down as a kid because of a fever I haven't been able to find it anywhere. Thank you! I'm looking for a historical romance, this book is in a series of books I read maybe 7 or 8 years ago.

What I remember is The lead male character is named Clayton he ends up marring this girl because they were caught doing something at night alone, I think what there were doing was completely innocent, I think the may have gotten married to save her from having to marry someone else, it took awhile for them to warm up to each other. Also the lead male has a duel with sole lord or duke or something and i think he ends up getting shot, but the other guys dies?

I'm not sure I cant remember much else but if someone could help that would be awesome! It is the middle of a 3 book series. But, Clayton Harcourt is the name of the hero. I'd love help remembering the name of a book I read when I was maybe in late teens, so around mid to late 70s. It was set in Australia, and was about a rancher who starts a ranch, brings an English bride to Australia, they make a life and have a family, but she never really loves it. They hire a housekeeper and she and the rancher fall in love and have a long time love affair and I think even a child together. He dies in her arms at the end I think there's a fire involved, but that might be me confusing it with the Thorn Birds.

I think the book might be the name of the ranch, but not sure. Is that obscure enough for you? Trying to locate a historical time travel romance book from at least ten years ago and possibly longer. Modern day at the beginning - two couples travel from New England but I think Maine to England and the men buy an unusual box in an antique store.

The store owner woman tells them if they are able to reveal the secret in the box they will discover something which has been long sought. There is a powder hidden the box which when inhaled enables them to travel back in time. I do not remember how it is resolved in the present after they return but I think they switch who they are married since they have affairs with the other spouse in the past.

I think the first was written about four-five years ago with the last one in The four young men who live there have to determine if he is the father of the girl and what happened to the woman he may have impregnated. The books are all tied together but each individual book involves each man's search as he rediscovers his lost love and what has happened to them. They try to keep the baby girl hidden from the other residents but are not able to. Since there are four books, the reader learns in the final book who the father is.

I am not familiar with your time travel book but the second series you mentioned is The Runaway Brides series by Celeste Bradley. I believe the series starts with Devil in My Bed. Thank you very much mamalaz. Looks like there are only three titles in this series. Shows you what happens to your memory. I am a librarian so I know what it is like to solve book puzzles when the customer does not have all the details straight like a three year old child and not a baby Hope someone is able to come up with the first book at some point.

When I retired, my reading list document containing all the titles, authors and synopsis for each book I had read for the past two years did not save correctly onto my flash drive. Of course, I did not find that out until after my work computer had been reconfigured. Since I read a book about every three days, that was a lot of carefully saved information and details lost. It sounds like one of Kate Moning's Highlander books which I read years ago obviously.

I am trying to remember the title of a book that I read 15 or 20 years ago. It is about a young English woman who runs away or wanders off on the day of her arranged marriage. He has assumed that she is a woman of the streets and doesn't believe her when she tells him her story. The plot has several twists and turns. The heroine befriends a young servant or slave who has been in love with the hero's friend for many years. There is also the woman scorned who plays a role in the plot.

I remember that the heroine gets pregnant and eventually kills the villain with a sword when the hero is lured away. She is also reunited with her family when the hero arranges for them to come to Louisiana. Any help in identifying this book is greatly appreciated.

I remembered another part of the story. If I am not mistaken, the heroine meets her friend who has been in love with the hero's friend since she was basically a child by the way when the heroine tries to run away and is almost sold into slavery or prostitution with her new friend.

I have a Name this Book question. Zebra Historical, I believe, The book started with a sad note. A son, I think, died very young. The heroine is very distraught, she lost a lot of weight and marriage failed. Time passed, she snapped out of her depression and tries to win back her stray husband. I am hoping I could get help with this I remembered reading this many years ago and the story stuck It has a shiny silver cover.

Heroine has red hair in the cover. I would greatly appreciate any help. Is there a website that I can search?? Here's another name this book. Published in the 90's. It's about two families united in marriage. The main character is accused of murdering his brother and sister-in-law very sure the sister-in-law's name is Debra.
