The hero is poor nobility and must marry for money. He visits the uncle's estate with his two friends to court the cousin. She gets pregnant.

I'm new to posts like these so bare with me. I've been trying to find the name of this book for a long time now and it's driving me crazy. Please help me. I don't remember much of the plot of the story or the names of the characters 'coz I read this book a while back.
What I do remember though is that this book is kinda on the adult romance genre. The story starts where a beautiful virgin young woman daughter of a man of power - probably a politician gets raped by a fat, short and old diplomat not really sure if he's a diplomat but he scares the girl by saying she can't tell anyone 'coz he has immunity in that country.
After being raped she is kidnapped by the same diplomat but she gets saved by a man love interest 1 but then she gets caught again by the diplomat and after some time saved by another man love interest 2. She then gets abducted by tribal people and she was deemed to be "the one" deity or something maiden or sun goddess because of her beauty.
Love interests 1 and 2 joins this ritual and 2 wins and they escape from the tribal people. Going back to civilization she gets confronted by the two love interests to choose between them who she loves most. She chooses love interest 1 but near the end she realizes, she loves love interest 2 more so she leaves 1 for 2 and they live happily ever after. I forgot most of the scenes and it was a thick book so there were a lot of scenes I forgot I wanna read them again but I just can't remember details that will lead me to the book.

It's a regency romance novel. He takes her to his country home, and she gets along with his staff. Possibly something about her organizing his library. She gets pregnant, but hides it from him. He takes her back to London, and she continues to hide the pregnancy from him she's miserable in the carriage ride to town -- I think because she's trying to be the perfect ton wife.
Her morning sickness gets so bad that she avoids callers; and then she's still so tired in the afternoon, that she cleverly avoids social calls and stays home to be well enough to go out for evening events tells Lady A that she'll be at Lady B's musical, tells Lady B she'll be elsewhere, etc. When her husband realizes that he is in love with her, he tries to track her down in the afternoon, going from point A to B to C, etc.
They both profess their love, he takes her back to the country, and everything ends well. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!! Hi guys I'm new here! I need help finding this book.

Hero needs to marry and produce an heir to secure estate. Her father is getting remarried to a shrew. It seems like both threads are active now! I'm a noobie, but here goes Medieval setting, published in late 90's or early 's I think --Two or three related books--one has a heroine named Judith, she marries beneath her somewhat, to a fairly impoverished noble family.
Her husband had mistresses he called by days of the week and she burned up their bed so he knew she wouldn't put up with it. The family's name had falcon in it, I think. Another related one same author, some shared characters was about the impoverished knight's little sister, named Zerah or something similar, who had always dressed as a boy and learned to fight like a knight. She is bested in a fight or something, and the other knight knows at once she is a woman though no one else, even her sister in law from the other book, don't know.
I hope someone knows these! This is so amazing, how some people know all of them! I had actually accidentally posted in another thread, and someone answered anyway, people are nice :. I need help finding the title of this book! Hopefully someone could help me - you all seem to have excellent memories. Its a fairly recent book I believe.

The real story is that the bf tried to have sex with the h, fed up with the spoiled nature of the sister, believing that the kind and sweet nature of the h was more his speed, but she denied him.
The bf goes off in a rage and promptly breaks up with the sister, spouting about how much better a person the h is than her, alluding that they had had sex. The sister runs to her brother, the H telling him how awful her friend, the h, is for sleeping with her bf. He tells her off, yelling about how they took her in and were kind to her, all the while she was a cheating backstabber, etc. Realizing that she had just been kidding herself and would never be good enough for the H, she leaves for a teaching job in Texas?
Things quickly fall apart between the H and his sister, especially as she realizes that the was probably wrong and took her anger out on the wrong person. The sister grows up and decides to become a nurse. Meanwhile the h is teaching in Texas where she is stabbed accidentally by a street kid when she gets in the middle of a fight. The H and the sister fly to her aide and bring her back to the ranch against her will. During her recuperation thats when the h and the H make up.
Hoping someone can help me out with this. I read a book as a teenager it might have been either a young adult or a general romance book about a girl who goes out west dressed as a boy. Unfortunately, I don't remember many details from it -- I think it had a mostly white cover with drawn characters in brown tones. It was probably from the early s, although it could have been the late s as well.
It might have been a series book Harlequin, or something similar. The girl is traveling with a group, and she of course likes one of the guys, who might have been the guide possibly on the Oregon Trail. He only realizes she is a girl when he's helping her up some obstacle, like a hill, and his arm grazes her chest. I read the beginning at the library as a kid and never finished it, but it stuck with me, as you can see! Thanks for any leads. I'm struggling to find the name of this book..
This guy had an operation during which he tied his tubes ergo he can't have children. Then he enters a shop one day, a few years later and happens to look at her screensaver and find an image of a child that looks almost alike to him when he was a child I keep getting confused with storylines similar to this one.
Please Help!!!! Look for the name and author of a romance i read over 10 years ago and it was an older book then, i'm thinking Romance story that the woman of the book was a reporter and while trying to get an interview with someone she gets bitten by a dog.

It's an old harlequin romance novel i believe 's in which the hero and heroine fall in love but unfortunately before anything can come out of it the hero's adopted father asks him to return home to marry his daughter who does not have long to live.
Suffice it to say the hero's wife dies after two years and leaves him with a daughter. The hero immediately hops on a plane to go back to the heroine however the plane crashes and the hero receives terrible burns and has to undergo plastic surgery. When the hero is finally reunited with the heroine who is an author or publisher she tells him she has a three year old son. The hero wants to be with her but doesn't know how to tell her about his situation. The hero's father- in- law meets him and the heroine learns about everything and runs away telling the hero she wants nothing to do with him.
The hero's daughter's name is Anna and I think the hero also had a mole on his back that was removed during his operation.

The heroine is a romance novelist Ok, please please please help me!! The novel was set originally in London, not sure exact time frame but I would say s. The heroine was redheaded I think, and very slim, like, not curvy at all.
She was from a plantation island in the Caribbean and her father ran the plantation, I think he dies and she is sent to London to live with someone, maybe a distant old cousin or aunt. The aunt wants her to hook up with her nephew, very distant relations. The heroine can't take control of her plantation without a husband, in her father's will I think. She hates London, doesn't fit in, isn't 'girly' enough and is always cold, hating the climate.
The 'hero' has some issues of his own, and for some reason agrees to marry her and go back with her, but he is super pissy about it. He is a jerk, he verbally abuses her and when she is almost raped by a crew member on the ship back to the island, he rescues her but then blames her for it as she is so manly she spends time in pants on the boat and such. Eventually, they make it to the island, there is big struggle there as the plantation has issues. I think there is a neighboring plantation owner, a woman who is competition and i think the 'hero' has an affair with her even. There is also an evil pirate in the mix, who eventually kidnaps the hero just as the couple are starting to get along.
The pirate is Hispanic and has an African concubine, I vividly remember a scene where they are making love and then he gives her a ruby and diamond necklace.
Pretty sure the heroine eventually actually rescues him. It was my mother's book and I read it when I was fairly young way to mess with a girl's head at a young age, but I digress , I am thinking I read it mid 90s Hi all, So I really need some help finding a book that my friend was telling me about. So she ended up taking charge. They are attacked by an army, Saxon I think, and the army offers to have a duel between their leader and someone from the kingdom, to avoid unnecessary bloodshed. So the heroine dresses as a knight and goes out to fight him.
The army laughs because she is so small, but they don't realize she is a woman. So they fight and he wins, naturally, but during or after the fight her helmet is knocked off and they realize she's a woman. So they take over the kingdom and he makes her his servant but she hates him. And she hides everynight somewhere that only she knows or something.
If you have any ideas that would be great!! Gonna try again and hopefully I will remember before someone can answer like last time!! I know there is more to it but that much I can remember.

That is because traditional conceptions of marriage and the family may wreak havoc on the approximately 16, binational couples in which the foreign partner is Asian. APAs who clamor for family-friendly immigration policies but temper their advocacy with tradition create a risk of deportation for thousands of gay and lesbian Asian immigrants with whom they should seek to build coalitions.
Advocating a traditional view of family unity thus endangers the immigration status of tens of thousands of Asian gays and lesbians, undermining claims to family unification the APA community has long valued.

Bombarded by the ideal image of beauty, thanks to GQ and the plethora of other "fashion guides," I hated the way I looked, I hated my hair, my nose, my eyes, and my skin.
