Hi everyone, i'm looking for a historical romance about Russian prince who has an affair with a mistreated married woman. The prince also gets the woman pregnant very early on in the book.
Please help me find this book or share ideas on what you think the book might be, it's driving me crazy. Ok I read this book about 7 years ago and haven't been able to find it since. It was set in Ireland or Scotland. The main character was a woman who was in a shipwreck and lost her memory.
A local lord found her and was very suspicious of her at first, I believe that until they found out her real name they called her something like marguerite or similar. Any way her father was a laird or something like that and was fighting with the man who found her. That's really all I remember. I would love to find this book, thanks for all your help. Looking for a book I read maybe 10 years ago or less. Setting is a restaurant young girl as waitress who falls for the owner. He has some strange commitment issues because he has some deep friendship with the cook at the restaurant and when she gets sick he gets married to the cook so she won't die alone.
That is how I think I remember it. Any help would be appreciated. I'm looking for a regency romance where the hero is high status duke? I think and is a philanthropist. Some misunderstanding occurs and he indirectly leads to the heroine's destitution - after his mother and friends push him to see what's happened to her they've all see and talked with her and offered support but she's refused , he goes and is horrified to see how bad her situation is. He finds her on the ground where she fell and lost some of her belongings. She then throws up and he thinks she's pregnant I don't remember if she actually was or not.
But this is the one scene I remember. I also know the novel was part of a series. Does this sound familiar to anyone?? Hey, I'm looking for a few books. An older fantasy romance that I read like probably 10 years ago. The guy is like a demon or grim reaper named Lucien or something and the woman is named Marian.
There's a scene where she goes through like a hormonal heat phase and another where she is almost attacked by a couple of men. Sorry this is pretty vague.
A recent western romance where a drifter comes into town and stays at a boarding house and eventually falls in love with the woman who runs it. And he's hiding his past because he used to live in that town, but there was an accident or something that killed his brother and now his parents think that both he and his brother are dead. A girl meets a boy but then he is murdered by a woman who is a witch? And then over books, the girl becomes a witch and actually learns the boy was bad.
I kind of maybe remember a floral cover and maybe seasonal names. She had the gift of a green thumb. A group of teenagers are chosen to be avatars of ancient gods and are fated to battle. Ok so I've been searching for a couple of books for several years and haven't had ANY luck.
Mardi Ballou - author of fun and sizzling erotic romance
Historical romance set in the American Civil War era. Female lead runs away from home when her stepfather I think tries to get with her and when she rejects his advances, accuses her of seducing him and her mother takes his side. She ends up on a train in the middle of the night that just so happens to have a POW from the opposing side on it. They end up going through all kinds of stuff including her being kidnapped and enslaved by some crazy big guy who tries to rape her and with the help of a friend she made crazy guys daughter if I remember correctly she kills him and escapes down a river somehow meeting back up with POW train guy.
Second one is a bit more vague in my memory. If I'm not mistaken a portion of it takes place on a ship before it crashes and the couple washes up on an island that ends up being inhabited with voodoo people who make them at home in a super nice house on the beach before trying to take over the mans mind. He either fights it off or the female lead saves him. The second one might actually be a mash up of two books that I just got mixed together so no biggie if no one recognizes it, but I would be ecstatic if someone could put a name to the first one.
They get married before they even meet in person. Hello everyone! I am looking for a book I read with in the last ten years. Sorry I know that doesn't narrow it down very much. The book is about hero having to please his dying grandfather by finding a wife. He is traveling and sees a very heavily pregnant woman feeding livestock near a small cottage. He recognizes her. She goes into labor he assists her and then asks her to pretend to be his wife to please his grandfather. Ugh I wish I could remember the author.

Hello, I'm new to this but I'm looking for a book I read months ago with this plot: It's a historical romance maybe set in the 's where the heroine is either in college or finishing school. For some reason she ends up going into a brothel and the hero mistakes her for a prostitute. The heroine runs out of the brothel and the hero searches for her. He has a lot of money and has people trying to find her but he doesn't know her name.
For some reason the heroine doesn't go home for her school break and when the hero does find her he takes her to a house he had rented so he can seduce her. They end up falling in love. Any help would be great, thanks! Girl on the run. Finds work on a run down farm. The horses were neglected before she got there.
The hero is a sheriff I think, who wants to seize the neglected horses. That's all I can remember. Hi everyone. I actually just joined this site in hopes that one of you could help me with my search for a book that I read as a sample at the back of a novella in The story is around a woman who is either trained because she is an assassin or a hunter.
She does kill people either way! Her name is a play on Little Red Riding Hood. Possibly Red, Ruby, Scarlet, Hood, etc. The story takes place quite a long time ago I'm assuming in the s. The only detail that I really remember is that the main character has to go to a village to save some werewolves that are locked in a cage. I'm sorry if this isn't a lot of information to go off of but I hope to be hearing from someone soon.
Hi All, a long shot -novel possibly published early to late 90s or very early Story set s French Revolution. Early in the story she saves a handsome man from drowning, takes him back to the tavern and nurses him back to health. Think he'd injured his leg or bump on the head - shipwreak or someone tried to kill him can't recall that part. She's very fiesty and opinionated and he's a tall dark muscular stand offish snob who only wants to get to France to save his "brother? Here's what I remember about the book I'm searching for: 1.
Set in modern day and is part of an anthology though I think a couple of the other stories were historical 2. A wealthy heiress is in danger and needs to stay safe until she reaches a certain age or gets married, whatever happens first. The heiress has an uncle that is kind of silly and nice, but will benefit the most if she dies. The heiress is extremely close to her grandfather, who is actually her step-grandfather, and it is really him who is trying to have her killed. It could possibly be a part of a Christmas anthology.
I'm not sure. I know it takes place during the winter, and it's possible they made their agreement to get married at a fund-raiser party during Christmas. Can someone help me find a book please? I read it about 10 years ago. It was paperback with a green cover, maybe with a tree on it. It's a romance novel. The story switches between the present and the past. Somewhere at the start the woman goes to meet a guy on a boat. I think that triggers the love story in the past.
I can't remember how the book ends. It's not much to go on but hopefully someone can help me. I am trying to find a romance novel that I read a few years ago but I have no idea how old it was. The main character was trying to prove to her overbearing brother's that she was not flighty or silly and was serious about her new profession as an interior decorator. Her brothers--who along with their best friend--were contractors. Their business is in trouble because they sunk all of their money into a golf course and it seems like someone was trying to sabotage them.
But they say she can decorate the model home I think it was the model. They ask the best friend main guy to watch out for their sister. The best friend thinks the main character can do it but he tries to stay away from her because he is attracted to her and doesn't want to get involved. He thinks he owes her brothers since he came from the wrong side of the track. Of course they get together. I remember the main character has a jerk of an ex boyfriend.
The main character's parents are dead. It's just her and her brothers and the parents have some "secrets" none of them want to tell each other about. The main guy also says she can decorate his home--which he is building on the golf course. I know there is a second in the series with one of the brother's and the main female from this one's best friend.
I just cannot remember the name or author! I think he pretends to try and steal her purse or something and she pulls a shotgun on him. He asks her to help him find his sister who we later find out has been kidnapped and sold as a sex slave to someone in the Middle East. They end up going undercover and she intentionally gets kidnapped from a casino I think.
The hero flies to where the slave auction will be taking place it's their plan for him to buy her and they see each other again after a week or so. She gets taken up to the auction block, nude, and the hero is stunned by how beautiful she is.. Almost misses out on buying her.. Craziness ensues, they locate the sister, make contact with her, kidnap her back and make a mad dash to a waiting plane which flies them back to the states.. I cannot remember what happens next but of course in the end they live happily ever after If anyone can give me any ideas as to the title or author I would be ever so greatful!
Thank you!! Please help - I'm trying to remember a book about an actress Jennifer? I think she has a child a little girl called Krista?

I do not remember the author nor the characters name unfortunately. Here is some of the big details from the story. A The hero is a lord I am not sure if he was a duke, Earl etc B The hero was previously married to an unfaithful wife who supposedly killed herself but we later find out that she was killed by her lover whose baby she was carrying.
C Beginning novel we see The hero asking the heroine's grandparent for their daughter's hand in marriageWhich he automatically just assumes that the girl will accept because he is her last option to marry. D But the girl refuses his proposal without accepting her condition which is for him not to share her bed for either 6 or 3 months I for got exactly how much. I believe she gave him 3 conditions total. E And the heroine is already in love with the hero because he was nice to her a few years back and asked her to dance at a ball. F the heroine's sister died suicide I believe So there is this gentleman's ring the heroine ALWAYS carries around The hero also owns the same ring and is part of the same club of the sister's boyfriend-the man the sister killed herself for.
The heroine wants to go to London so that she can investigate her sister's murder. Basically the sister's suicide and the ex's wife suicide are related to this guy that the hero is acquainted with and absolutely despisesHe was one of his ex wife's MANY lovers. For dark and enigmatic Julian, Earl of Ravenwood, was a man with a legendary temper and a first wife whose mysterious death would not be forgotten. Some said the beautiful Lady Ravenwood had drowned herself in the black, murky waters of Ravenwood Pond. Others whispered of foul play and the devil's wrath.
Now country-bred Sophy Dorring is about to become Ravenwood's new bride. Drawn to his masculine strength and the glitter of desire that burned in his emerald eyes, the tawny-haired lass had her own reasons for agreeing to a marriage of convenience. One was vengeance, and in its pursuit she would entangle Julian in a blackmail plot, a duel at dawn, and a dangerous masquerade. The other reason was dearer to her heart, but just as wild a quest: Sophy Dorring intended to teach the devil to love again.
Ravenwood was the damn name that for the life of me I could not think of. And how on earth did I forget my favorite character's name; Sophy.. I am looking for book I think was published in the 80's. I read it 12 years ago, but it was my moms who had had it for a while. It was set in the Victorian era I think, the main characters had separate rooms. I only remember the beginning. The girl was running from something and ends up climbing through the window of an inn and falling asleep on the bed.
The man has purchased the room for the night. When he enters he thinks she is a gift from someone he was talking with while having his dinner. She allows him to touch her because she thinks she is dreaming. They are discovered before much happens, but he is told he must marry her and agrees. Beyond that the only other thing I remember is he has a nickname that came from his battle experience and he has a sister or sister in law that is a main supporting character of the story. And if I remember correctly he gambles I think the title had midnight in it, but I'm not sure of that.
Hello one and all, I have been looking for a book for the past 3 months and cannot find it whatsoever. It's a historical romance about a girl who went unwillingly with her friend to a witch like woman's house to get a talisman for her friend to catch this Duke or count of her dreams. Now the witch lady tells the unwilling friend to place her finger on the talisman an she pricks her finger on it.
Then the witch or sorceress gives instructions to the willing friend. But the willing friend doesn't want to hold it an tells the unwilling friend to give it to her at some ball they were both supposed to attend. When the willing friend sees the man she wants she runs off to freshen up. While the unwilling friend walks to the balcony to get fresh air. The guy sees her go alone, follows her an sees her take the talisman out and is instantly curious he wants to see it closely but she tries to hide it again, they struggle with it an both of them touch it resulting in her losing her virginity that night.
I also remember him being from another land because he has a mishap with her pernounciation of salt in his language. If anyone has any clue please help. Google and Amazon are giving me runaround! The book starts with the heroine throwing clothes and other items out the hotel window because she thought her friend ripped her off.
She was working on a history textbook and had just gotten a deal that she thought he hijacked he didn't. In the meanwhile, the heroine drives to her new job arriving a few days early and in the rain where she falls for her boss. He owns some sort of training facility that teaches medieval fighting and such and she's employed to teach them about the history and assist in weapons preparation. This book should be contemporary romance. I also remember that at one point the heroine almost drove through the hero's wooden gates because they were locked and she wanted to leave hastily.
Any information is appreciated as I read it in and have been looking for it since. Looking for a romance novel that it is set in the U. A man puts out an ad looking for a woman not sure if he was searching for a bride who has had at least one child proof that she is not barren as he wishes to sire an heir. I think this ad was placed in New York. The woman he chooses deceives him into thinking that she is a widow and he believes her little sister is actually her daughter.
The ad promised lots of money and she and her sister were in desperate need. Once they get on a train to head west to his ranch in Wyoming or some such state, he finds out in his privately owned car his new lady was not experienced as he had thought.
I do remember that the train had to stop for buffalo or bison crossing. I'm looking for a book a read a long time ago. I believe it is a Harlequin romance. It's about this girl and her neighbor who appears to be a womanizer. I think he volunteers to give her dating pointers or something, but she doesn't think he can concentrate on just one woman.
I can't remember how it ends, but I know they have the same last name. Carpenter and Carpenter. Any tidbits would be appreciated. I'm looking for a book I read ears ago. Woman wakes up next to a stranger with a new face because he wants to get his wifes family off his back over his wifes disappearance. The mother is crazy about removing every hair from her body and her brother knows it's not the real wife because the woman is too nice. Turns out she is an illegitimate child of the mother. I just joined because I've been wracking my brain, and slogging through the internet, but I cannot remember what this book was.
What I remember: 1 I think it was either Victorian or regency. Lords and ladies and corsets and whatnot. I think there may have been some themes of control or dominance, but it wasn't over the top. Just joined group.
62 Books Guaranteed To Make You Sweat
Looking to see if anyone can help me find the title or author for a book I read about 20 years ago. It's been going around in my head for days and is driving me a little crazy.
Futuristic Earth where there is timed showers and sidewalk excaltors. A woman is deported from Earth for going to a "gov't rebellion" meeting 1 time to a colony established on another planet. She is transported on a spaceship where she is told she will have to marry as soon as she lands or become a lover of one of the male settlers for housing.
On the spaceship, she learns some self-defense from the one guy she interacts with a lot. As they land on the planet, she picks the guy she spent most of her time with to marry even though she doesn't know he can turn her down since he was the first born on this planet and it gives him certain privileges.
They marry one the first day she is on the planet and then he takes her home. Please let me know if anyone can think of the title or even author. Hi everyone! Just joined the group and am hoping someone can help me! I must have read this book around 15 years ago, so it's at least as old as that, if not more. It's set in "the olden days". The heroine lives in a cabin the forest, I think with her father and maybe an aunt-type person? She's quite young, very headstrong and gets into trouble a lot. One night I think she is trying to run away and comes across a man in the bushes - I can't really remember why he is there he may be a thief.
Anyway, she convinces him to let her go with him wherever he is going - I think he eventually agrees to take her as far as a city. On the way they get ambushed; she is sold to a house where she becomes a slave I remember something about her cleaning the house, I think the person she works for is a doctor of some description.
The hero is working in the mines. Something happens which allows her to escape, she also rescues the hero and they escape into the mountains. He is badly injured so she nurses him back to health and they fall in love. Whilst they're on the mountain he teaches her to fish. He takes her back home and promises that he will come back for her. The hero does come back for her and it's happily ever after! I'm looking for a Harlequin from the 's.
I only recall the vaguest of details The hero is a military pilot and the story is about a son he didn't know existed, I think, there's definitely a young son in the story. The hero really likes Walt Whitman. I am looking for a historical romance, I believe set in America. There are a group of four brothers that work the farm during the day and taken to highway robbery at night in order make ends meet.
There is a girl working for them I think in the house and she discovers their secret. She and the oldest brother have developed a relationship and are in love. She begins riding out with them, against their wishes and they become quite sucessful. One night things go wrong, her love has been shot and she thinks he is dying, she gets captured and is blackmailed to remain with her captor to protect the brothers from prosecution. Hero and Heronie meet and of course things heat up when she refuses to leave with him. Please help if you can, I hope I am remembering this correctly, but it was in the mid-nineties when I read it!
It might have even been a part of a series, with this being the first book. Hey, I'm looking for a contemporary romance that I read about five maybe six years ago. I don't have the best recollection of the names in the book the only thing I can really remember are a few scenes from the book. The main scene I remember is that the book starts out with the heroine who is really shy being afraid of her mom's boyfriend because he's a creepy drunk.
One night I don't think her mom is there so the heroine locks her door so he doesn't get into her room. The boyfriend starts to knock on her door and instead of waiting around for him to do something the heroine sneaks out the window. She then runs over to the hero's house and she ends up losing her virginity to him.
They were both young and they both cared for each other. I think they somehow got separated at some point and don't see each other until later on in life when they are a tad bit older. Yet, I'm not entirely certain of this or how they got separated. I just know that the girl never did suffer any abuse from her mom's boyfriend and that there is a happily ever after between the hero and heroine. I did read this on my kindle when I had one so I don't know if there is a hard copy or not of this book.
Any suggestions would be great please. I'm looking for a romance novel, I usually read Nora Roberts, Judith McNaught, Johnana Lindsey and others like them but can't remember who wrote this book.

Fantasy, contemporary, historical, paranormal, you name it, and forbidden love exists. Here are a few of my faves:. Add to Bag. Keely McDonald lives as an outsider to her own clan, betrayed by those she loved most. He is betrothed to another of her clan, and she is an outcast—but their forbidden love cannot be stopped.
