If you enjoy a traditional historical romance, Anna Bradley is up there with the best of them! Lily is a bit of a control freak. Her parents once caused a scandal with their unapproved marriage, and since their deaths, Lily has been determined to maintain order. She dresses impeccably and appropriately for every social occasion, and has even picked out the perfect, completely scandal-less, upstanding and totally boring gentleman to marry.
After an earth-shattering kiss born of mistaken identities, Robyn and Lily are discovered, and she is effectively ruined. But even though the proper next plan would include a marriage proposal from Robyn, for some reason she is determined to come up with a plan that excludes him completely. But for some other reason, it irks him to find that Lily expects nothing from him. I loved reading about Robyn and Lily, and even better than their explosive chemistry when they do come together is watching and waiting as the two try to deny their need for each other.
Anna Bradley has made her mark on historical romance, and I eagerly await the next of the Sutherland Scandals! I received a copy of this book for an honest review. Samantha Streger, Romance Junkies. May 22, Pam rated it really liked it. This author is a joy and her book continued my love of her voice and character driven stories. The hero and heroine go through transformations that had me wanting to read even when real life interfered.
Robyn is truly a forgotten son; never in line for a title he is the fun loving rogue who does not see any problems with his lifestyle. While hiding away in a dark room he awaits a tryst with a married woman but I have been looking forward to this book since I finished A Wicket Way to Win an Earl. While hiding away in a dark room he awaits a tryst with a married woman but instead he gets a too prim virgin who also happens to be his sister in law.
Lily wants order in her life. She is looking to attract the eye of a certain lord who is as boring and reserved as she is. It is unfortunate that she gets a taste of passion while being mistaken for an eager partner, but the moment has changed her forever, even though it takes some time before she realizes it. After the scandal is revealed in the gossip papers she tries even harder to keep her life stable as is starts to spin out of control.
Lily soon becomes the bell of the ball and the scandals fade away, it is amazing how much weight her grandmother has. As she becomes more popular, Robyn is finding it hard to watch, only now realizing what she means to him. I love the Sutherland and Somerset families, in the first book we meet the Somerset sisters who are just emerging from the scandal that had their mother leaving the area and their grandmother abandoning them.
But they are back and with one sister married to a Sutherland, the others are bound to have engaging adventures of their own. His relationships with both his brother and his friends are fun loving and entertaining. Yet we see a darker side of him, one where he could never live up to his father, and stopped trying. I loved his relationship with Lily from beginning to end. They were friends originally and although they experienced the kiss of a lifetime in a dark room, they try to keep their friendship alive, but the witty banter and continually getting in trouble seemed to bring their relationship to a new level, I often had a smile on my face as I read about their antics.
Lily tried hard to be a person that would never cause a scandal; she never wanted their family name to be the cause of whispers and rumors as they were in the past. However she is having a hard time keeping herself above it all as she is continuously in the gossip column whenever she and Robyn are seen together. It is only when her grandmother comes back into her life does she rise above the scandals, but she begins to miss her friend.
As much as she tries to stay away, there is something that pulls them back together and the combustion is amazing. I did dread how often Lily turned her back on him, but that is probably just me wanting them to get together faster than the author planned. As I said in the beginning, Ms. Bradley is becoming an author who I will automatically buy, her stories are entertaining and I love the characters she has created.
Although this is the second in the series, it can easily be read as a standalone as the author keeps the reader informed. This is a fun, quick read and stories like this are the reason I keep coming back to the historical genre. Dec 10, eyes. A darkened room, mistaken identify, a lovers tryst gone awry, and the unforgiving ton! Robyn Sutherland finds the kisses he shares with another leave him unsettled. Lily Sommerset, who's not looking for an untrustworthy rake, especially her brother-in-law. She wants a beau without a blemish on his record, like the handsomely pedestrian Lord Atherton.
Lily appears to suffer from an anxiety disorder. Everything must line up and Robyn, selfish hedonist, and wickedest rake Everything must line up and Robyn, selfish hedonist, and wickedest rake in London, doesn't fit the bill, although his kisses do make her melt. Lily, the perfectionist seems to go from one scandal to another due to the actions of Robyn--all reported in the latest scandal sheet. Robyn is in the words of the elderly Lady Chase, a 'Rapscallion.
That's Lady Chase's cane punctuating her utterances with her cane. Lily is conflicted and trying to deny her feelings for many good reasons. After all how can one trust Robyn. Certainly the twists and turns in this romance have been explored before but Bradley has managed a well packaged story, even while employing some recognizable tried and true tricks. There are some delightful turns of phrase and mildly ironic statements spattered throughout that add a little zest to the mix.
Jul 19, Amanda rated it it was amazing. Where do I begin? Robyn - I can't remember when I last loved a bad boy as much as I loved him. He is wicked and he knows it. After his encounter with Lily, he attempted to carry on his life as he knew it, but his heart and body knew better. Lily is demure and all that is ladylike but for one very surprising chapter of this book. I actually paused and readjusted my entire picture of her, which meant re-reading the entire chapter. I did not see that coming! I cannot seem to write reviews as well as my thoughts play out in my mind.
However, I do know that this author, Anna Bradley, is now an auto buy for me. Her writing is fresh, lively, passionate and all that is needed for Regency romance!

Sometimes men are clueless. Robyn is both all the Time! He literally cares about no one. He's always disappointing his mother, brother, and sisters.

Our girl Lily was put through the emotional ringer, but she handled it with aplomb. Robyn was charming and fun, and it was nice to see him drop his rakish ways because he wanted to be a better person for Lily. Oct 05, Coral rated it really liked it.

She thinks she knows her own mind and the reader almost believes she does. Until Robyn enters the picture. Good grief someone get me a fan. And poor unsuspecting Lily is caught in the cross hairs. Robyn was meaning to meet another, instead he meets her and his reputation is so horrible that just being in the same room with him is enough to ruin her.
But the end goal is to get people to believe they are together so that in the end when they break things off—the scandal is averted. But what happens when he starts falling for her? Suddenly every man pales in comparison to Robyn. And for good reason. I loved his character. This good readers, is a story about both characters saving each other and relying on one another and I devoured it.
If you are looking for a tightly written, and beautifully cast story—look no further. Aug 16, Nessa rated it really liked it. They really did feel platonic to me until the author crossed that line with an opening, passionate kiss in chapter one. Of course, in this book the author reveals the true Robyn where he starts to get back a little of what he's lost in his youth Like everyone else I do believe him to be not just a degenerate but never one to keep his word or responsible.
And Robyn prefers it that way UNTIL he starts seeing Lily as a desirable woman instead of a sister in law, and one who was untouchable at that. Robyn struggles between being in lust and proper at the same time. It challenges him to actually do the right thing, down to acting petulant at times though comical.
The way he treats Lily is sweet and like a hot blooded man in love. Yes, he has his faults but its not like he didn't wake up and made up for them. After the death of her parents she suffered a setback that worried Delia endlessly until they met the Sutherlands. This will be her chance to enjoy a London Season but it all went horribly wrong the moment she was caught alone with Robyn by a jealous harpy.
Needless to say, one scandal led to another and soon Lily is terribly confused about the passion Robyn stirs inside her. Was his affection real or was she just another body to him? Unlike Delia, Lily has a much diminished spirit though sometimes it shines through. I think she is also a little bit OCD.

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. Nov 16, , 4: I think the heroine has never been rich, and I am positive the setting is in the U.
Let me know if any others come to your mind. 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 Nov 18, , 6: Pregnant female butler 8-months along.

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. 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.
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 P Crossing my fingers that someone recognizes this novel! Feb 13, , 1: 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! 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. 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. Feb 19, , 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: She's disguised as a nobleman, not a footman, but I really think this is it! I think you are right. I know it's something that I have read. Absolutely Duchess By Night.
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.

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! Z Mar 30, , 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, , 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.
I think this is one of Julie Garwood's books, but I can't remember which one. 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. 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? 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. Its a historical romance set during WW2. Consummation was a rape scene! They got a son,Luis.

See a Problem?
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. 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!

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! Apr 23, , 8: 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?
