He lives in a castle with his mother and sister -- and they have a daughter she doesn't remember either. Eventually it turns out to be a case of mistaken identity. Too bad no one else recognizes my first one! It sounds interesting. I just added it to the Romantic Times Book Sleuth discussion thread, though. Winnie, I don't see a post that you found your book 21 yet.
Could it be Love's Charade by Jane Feather? Oh, this is so exciting! The book I'm looking for is a totally trashy romance my cousin and I read for the sex scenes when we were younger. It involved this guy who was a teacher or a professor and had bright red hair. Anyway, he had sex with a bunch of girls, and they all came back to this reunion with batches of redhaired children It was cheesy, but I remember it so vividly and wish I could find it again!
Anybody recognize it? No sorry. But welcome to the group superblondgirl! Jenson, According to the people on the Romantic Times Message Boards, my book 2 up there is Fantasy by Lori Foster , which they say was originally published as part of a series romance and then repubed after she got famous. I've got it bookmooched now, but I haven't received it yet, so I'll let you know when I get it in. Ireland, I have Foster's Fantasy, but I didn't recognize it from the bits you remembered. Here's the blurb from the back cover: Security consultant Sebastian Sinclair agrees to be sold at a bachelor auction.
Being bought is one thing, now he's about to be given away as a gift for some lucky birthday girl. Brandi really means it when she says "Oh, you shouldn't have" to her sister's outrageous birthday gift, a five-day dream vacation to a lovers' retreat. Lover included. What's she going to do in paradise with the sexy stranger Sebastrian Sinclair? Brandi soon discovers she can do whatever she wants. I remember this one now. If you like Fantasy, and you haven't read the other Visitation books, you should. They are all fabulous!
I hope someone can tell me what this book is. I read it years ago, from the library, and could never figure out what the book was after I sent it back. I don't know names either. All I remember was that the lady was going on vacation in either scotland or england. She was staying in a type of lodge or log cabin. There was something magical that appeared, some type of God or Faery. They fell in love. It was forbidden for him to love someone, so he was sent back to no-where land before a council to get his fate judged.
She went home and balled her eyes out. She told her sister or someone close to her about him, and the person was convinced that it was all a dream, that she had from the plot of a book she was reading. She convinced herself of that too. Then months later he moves in across the street from her, and thats the end of the book. I keep thinking that he begged the councel to send him back as a person so they could have a life together.
BUT I have a very active imagination, so I don't know if that was in there or if I just dreamed it up myself when the book was done with.
Thanks :D. The Secret Life of Bryan was one of my faves of the visitation series.

I'll have to check out fantasy, it sounds good. Ireland, it will be interesting to see if they got the right book. CrazyDaisyLou - It kind of sounds like a short story I read in Man of My Dreams which was an anthology except the ending it much, much different. In this short story the heroine is a librarian who discovers her former lover at a solstace celebration. He left her because he had been taken by the fairies and was the consort of the fairy queen. It's probably not the same one but I thought I'd mention it.
It does sound like a very good story, hope you figure out what it is. There is a Johanna Lindsey with a plot like this. The heroine is named Rosalind or something like that and is a medieval history professor. She collects swords and bought one that was cursed and brought forth Thor, a Viking warrior. They fall in love and travel through time, and the only way to break the curse is if she voluntarily gives him the sword back, which she does to free him, but it send them back to their respective times.
Her brother and best friend both tell her she's been sick and it's been a dream or some such thing and at the end Thor does appear in her time as a modern man, having appealed to Odin in Valhalla to give him a second chance at life. I think it was called Until Forever or something like that.
Her name is Roseleen, but other than that you are on the mark gracer. It is called Until Forever. I don't usually read contemporaries, but I remember reading one when I was younger that I would like to find again. It was written in the 80s and followed the romantic lives of music prodigies who meet at school as teenagers. It followed them into adulthood and was an old school 80s epic. The main character is a virtuoso girl who is considerably younger than the others who has a serious case of unrequited love for the big man on campus.
He de-flowers her an expression one never uses outside of a romance novel and then walks out on her.

They wind up getting together years later and she of course has only ever had sex once with him as a teenager because who knows. They also have a male friend who is involved in some weird bi-threesome plot where he refers to some sex act as being as romantic as "changing a light bulb. Thanks so much Gracer and LucyMaude.
I hope this is it, it sounds like it is. I'm surprised I don't have it, considering I've collected 25 Johanna Lindsey novels so far. But I'm 25, and it's been at least 9 years since I read it, and I didn't even actually own any books back then. I am SO going out tomorrow to look for it.
Remember Me there are 3 of them. I am still looking for the book in message Here is the description from bn.

Winniekuhl, I think I have solved the mystery of I knew it sounded familiar, I just had a hard time coming up with the name. It is Birdie by Taylor Ryan. It is a Harlequin Historical published in Actually, a copy is being sold on ebay right now if you want to look at it. I probably shouldn't be so confident. After all I could be wrong. But I hope I'm not. Let me know if I got it.
Thanks megkrahl, I read the desciption and it is not it. Thanks for trying! Hi Winnie, i thought it might be The Rogue and the Hellion by Connie Mason as she is a highwayman, but found out to be a girl, he takes her back to teach her a lesson but she turns out to be a lady! But then i realised it wasn't published until , might have been re-released, but i thought it was worth a mention just incase Hope you find what yr looking for!
Her flirtatious sister, Daphne, is engaged to a man who will only inherit if he is married by a certain date. Daphne elopes, leaving behind a note and her wedding dress. Sophie shows up at the altar, but Alex, the bridegroom, recognizes her for who she is. They agree to marry to allow him to inherit and her to save face for her sister.
It does sound familiar, but I am at a loss as well. The names of the sisters are different, but the plot sounds very similar. In the Bradley story, the sisters are twins. Could be it. I found a description: Lovely Sophia Forest was a very intellectual young lady for the year in Regency England--quite different from her beautiful and flighty sister, Daphne. All London was agog when Sophia rather than Daphne wed the dashing Earl of Gresham, whose scorn for bookish females was well-known. The marriage was intended as a business arrangement only--to preserve the Earl's fortune and give Sophia financial independence.
But what was Sophia to do when she found herself enamoured of her husband, though too proud to admit it? Sophia needed all her wit and womanly wiles in a game of pretense and passion, to make the man she loved, love her. We'll see if it's the right one. It's original copyright date was Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me find the names of two books I read some years ago.
I believe they were published around always before August I believe they are from British authors. They are both romances. One has a yellow cover with little cakes or cupcakes - I don't recall on them. She shares her house with some friends. The book is really funny. The other one has a light blue cover and I don't remember the story that well.

I do know that in the end, the guy gives the girl a unique rose that he himself well, his company I guess created by matching 2 types of roses. In this last one, I just remembered that in the beginning, the girl is trying some clothes in a shop and afraid of a bee runs topless through the shop and bumps into the guy. Well, I know it's not much, but if anyone could help, I'd be very grateful. Thank you very much. I love that you guys have this section. New here, so please bear with me. I also think she had a girlfriend who runs a local bookshop. I know it isn't much to go on, but every time I think I may be remembering more of the story I start to think I'm combining two stories into one.
It's driving me batty. Nyah99 -- yellow cover with possible cupcakes reminds me of He Loves Lucy by Susan Donovan , but I'm not sure that's your book. This one takes place in Miami? The heroine has a goal to lose weight for publicity with the hero being her trainer. Not one of the Bridgertons I'll dig around a bit and see if I can come up with a title.
Thank you so much both of you. Thank you again. Thank you for your help. I've just found the name of the other book. First of all, its cover is not blue, but white. Aviddiva- Thanks. It could be Amanda Quick, though I still can't seem to place it. And it seems like she has several with trading places type themes. I'll keep digging thru her stuff and see, though I appreciate you still looking as well.
The Duke's grandfather corresponds with the heroine and carries on the courtship. Grandpa dies and when grandson comes back from the war, he finds out he is engaged to her. Grandson goes to confront her, she thinks he is the new footman she has hired and the story then continues.
It's pretty funny actually. Hope this helps. In that book, the hero is disguised as the heroine's butler. He is a spy and the powers that be believe that her deceased husband had something of importance he was a spy too. There is also a Julia Quinn where the hero shows up and pretends to be her estate manager or something similar. She's the impoverished daughter of an earl or something similar who is working as a paid companion to a crotchety old lady who's nephew is a Marquis posing as her estate manager to get to the bottom of who is blackmailing her.
Very funny and entertaining! Thanks guys. Oddly, I have missed all of those and will now be reading those to see if maybe I've just lost my entire peas sized brain and maybe DID actually read one of those. Hopefully it'll come to me soon as it's still tickling the back of my mind constantly. Very sad I tell you. Thanks again! I'm pretty sure its a historical romance but all i remember is that the hero if the book is sold at an auction. He is bought by a woman for her daughter.
I don't remember the name or the author of the book. I have a vague memory of one like that as well, but can't quite place it. I need some help with a book title too, It's a historical romance and the lady poses as a highwayman to take cre of the estate. The lady also posed as an ugly crone on the night their supposed meeting. Not quite sure this fits the bill but My Lady Notorius by Jo Beverley has a highwayman heroine with a cruel father and brother. She is trying to protect her widowed sister and baby who the father is trying to marry off to some awful man.
Knight to the Rescue by Miranda Lee
The book is part of the Malloren series and takes place in Georgian England. The one you describe sounds familiar too but so far it's escaping me! Hi everyone! Here goes nothing I'm looking for a book that's been bugging me for about a month now. I don't know the title or author or character names. I think the "hero" is from a well-known, well-off family. I know the "heroine" is from a poor family. She has red hair.
I'm not sure if she has an older brother or dad. I remember the first chapter or so clearly, but not sure if the rest when they're older is correct or from another story. More filters. Sort order.

Contrary to the standard HB HP outing, there was a slightly lower shower count than usual-HB is minding the water conservation rules.
But we get a lot of clothes changes, some coffee and the standard HB prescribed amount of High Society events and shopping, this one takes place over the course of a week. The h and H meet when the h is at some society party and trying to evade the matchmaking attempts of the OM, his parents and HER parents. It isn't that her parents want to marry her off to anyone in particular, it is just that her mother doesn't understand any other way of life other than married socialite.
The h doesn't like the OM, he is domineering, controlling and very gropey - she has her own art gallery in partnership with a male art school friend and she doesn't care what her parents or his parents or the OM thinks -she just isn't interested. The OM is getting more demanding and grabby and in walks the H. He is also domineering, controlling and grabby - but he is super rich, super hot and Greek - plus he makes the h's toes tingle, so him grabbing her and hauling her off is okay.
The OM gets angry that a more uber Alpha guy is stealing his chosen stalking target away. Initially, the H cozens up to the h by enlisting her services as his fake girlfriend to ward off the widow of his dead BFF, who thinks the H will make a delightful second marriage target. The h is reluctant, because she doesn't tolerate just ANY rich guy grabbing her. Especially when her mother, who has a fine sense of social status and finance, keeps issuing invitations to push the H and h together.
Then the rejected OM starts getting nasty and targeting the h for his unwanted attentions. The H knows his way around super lux boardrooms and around a few back alleys, so he insists that he and the h have to be in constant close contact, he is basically her personal body guard. The h does her part to ward off his wanna be OW too and there are several little amusing social scenes complete with catty high society polite cat fight remarks.
The H decides that the escalating OM needs to be sent upon his way and he get his minions to work behind the scenes to get both the OM and his parents socially banished from Australia. Of course all this close and personal contact has led to major purple passion lurve club events between the H and h. So by the time the OM and his family are banished to Majorca and the OW finally gets it in her head that the H doesn't want his dead BFF's sloppy seconds, the h is worried that she is in love and will never see the H again - because their reasons for being together are now over.
But the H isn't letting a good thing go when he seizes it. He asks the h to stay with him and then tells her they should get married in two weeks, a day or two before Christmas, because he totally loves her. The h worries about what her mum might say, but she loves the H just as much and the h's mother is so happy about her daughter's stratospheric status marital trophy, that she gets the very tasteful wedding done in double quick time and the H and h are spending a married Happy Christmas all lurved up and together for the very sweet HEA.
This one was cute and HB did a good job of mixing it up a bit. It is very HBish tho, so be prepared for lots of fashion and high society if you choose to go on this particular HB outing.

Great premise of having h and H enter a "fake" romance to thwart both their respective psycho exes but unfortunately, the story turned out to be the blah-est ever. View all 3 comments. This was a sweet, low-angst, sexy feel-good story. Nikos swept in and took over Michelle's life. But this girl's got spunk and backbone to spare. She's even well practiced in martial arts so she does very well fending off her attacker. Most of the book sees Michelle falling in love with Nikos with no clue what his feelings are.
Is it all an act or could he be falling in love too? I really enjoyed this one. There was a lot of descriptive food, parties and clothes. It made me realize that the socia This was a sweet, low-angst, sexy feel-good story. It made me realize that the socialite lifestyle would bore me to tears. Give me a quiet evening with a good book any day. Safety view spoiler [Nikos is obviously a player, Michelle wasn't a virgin but gave no details about her sexual past except that she preferred to be selective and have feelings for her partners.
There is an OW that won't get a clue but she isn't a threat and Michelle tells her off very well. There is a jealous and delusional OM but he goes away. View 2 comments. Mar 01, Leona rated it liked it Shelves: hqn-presents. I really like Helen Bianchin. She writes a great story that grips you from the first page, her Hero's are to die for, and her stories have a little bit of a different twist.
Michelle is being stalked by an unwanted suitor Nikos sees her at a party and comes to her rescue This is definitely a case of "knight in shining armor" and the supporting cast is just wonderful. My only reason for giving it 3 stars versus 4 is I didn't like the heroine. She seemed selfis I really like Helen Bianchin. She seemed selfish, unappreciative and rather cold.
Jun 15, Reader rated it did not like it. This author has a formula that usually works for her, not all the time but often. Here the two main characters were very up their own asses IMO. I felt no empathy with this tale,the characters are all self indulgent twats.
What he asked of her was unbelievable and Michelle refused to accede to his demands. Then why, oh why, did she truly want to be everything Nikos ever wanted and so much more? Love is sometimes clothed within a game of hide and seek before flowering to its full magnificence. This is a good book to curl up with on a rainy afternoon. Jun 19, Mudpie rated it liked it. That Jeremy was a creep right from the start, even his name is usually one I associate with a weak character!
