The back cover of the book is yellow, with little pictures of
cherries on it. The book probably would have been published from
2004 - 2008, and I believe it was a single book, not a series.
The plot follows a woman who is considered to be overweight. I
believe that her first name may start with an "M". She
has low self esteem. Somehow she ends up living with this rich,
attractive man. He buys her a lot of designer clothes and helps
her learn to have pride in herself. I believe the woman does not
have a good relationship with her father and at one point in the
novel he comes and they argue.

I read a book in the mid to late 90's about a girl who i think
was of persian descent. I think she was royalty and had been kidnapped
by a man whose benefactor had led him to believe the girl's father
was responsible for his family's death. I always thought it was
written by Barbara Taylor bradford but i cant seem to find it
in any of her books.
in the story he later realizes they are in love and can't go
through with what his benefactor wants. please help.

It's about man getting revenge for his sister because he found
out that her husband cheated on her with another woman. The man
hires the girl (I think she was a model) for a shoot with the
jewelry he designed (I'm not sure about this. I think he owned
it or something.) Then he starts to fall for her even if he didn't
really want to. He finds out near the end that the woman was drugged
by his brother-in-law and that the other man took advantage of
her. There was a scene where the hero slaps her because he think
she was lying.

I have been searching for a romantic novel which I read almost
5 years back. In the book both the man & woman are writers.
He writes mystery/thriller novels and she writes romantic novels.
They fell in love and got married but they separated because she
thought he had cheated on her.
Now after 18 months he is back and wants her to help him gain
custody of his niece who is in australia and orphaned after his
sisters death. To do this the bring the child back and need to
stay together as a couple in order for him to gain custody. While
doing this the man gets her as well after convincing her of his
fidelity and love. The man's surname was a French sounding one
starting with Beau probably.
I guess the story was set in England.

I am looking for a contemporary novel.. the heroines dad forces
them to marry, and i don't remember much but i know that the hero
leaves because the heroine didn't see him cry on their wedding
night because she wears contact lenses. i don't remember much,
but at the end she says' you never cry' to him, and he realises
that she hadn't seen him crying on their wedding night.. he thinks
before that that she is cold and unfeeling so he is rather nasty
to her. And yes, she didn't see him cry because she wasn't wearing
her contacts. They don't consummate the marriage on the wedding
night, I think..i think its a hp novel

I think it was from Mills and Boon/Harlequin. The story is about
a woman who was married and became pregnant. Her husband kicks
her out saying that she was unfaithful with, I think, a cousin
or brother. She goes away and give birth to twin boys. The story
jumps ahead a couple of years. The wife takes the boys to the
beach where one of the twins cut their arm. She rushes the child
to the doctor who realizes that the child looks like the husband.
He says the child need blood and that hers is not good enough
asking about the father. She fetches the other twin. The doctor
shows the husband a photo and he comes looking for them.

It's a Mills and Boon where the heroine goes for a short holiday,
I think in Spain to visit her friend. The hero was or supposedly
is the lover of the heroine's friend. When the hero meets the
heroine, he starts hitting on her even though the heroine thinks
he is in a relationship with her friend.The heroine refuses to
get involved with the hero because her friend has told her that
she is pregnant with the hero's baby and plans to make him marry
her. But the hero is persistent and takes the heroine to meet
his mother who does not like or approve of the heroine's friend
love affair with her son.

I read this book 7 or 8 years back. It is a Mills & Boons
book. The story starts with the heroine heading to Scotland in
her car. She is a journalist or some writer for a magazine. She
lives with two other girls. They all work together and each of
them have to get different stories for the magazine. So they all
go to different places and the heroine has to come to Scotland.
She sees the hero on her way walking with the cows or something
and assumes him to be some farm boy. She asks him the way and
he asks her to follow him. After she reaches her destination she
finds that he is the owner or something. She had to come to Scotland
to get to learn about some very precious jewel or stone that has
been in the hero's family for generations. They both fall in love,
though it is revealed only at the end. Although I think the hero
asks her to be with him forever in Scotland but she refuses. Eventually
she accepts his proposal.

I am looking for the title of a book that I had as an excerpt
from another book (a Joann Ross book possibly?). The heroine owned
a shop that she inherited from her grandmother who was supposedly
a fortune teller. It took place in Lousisiana in a bayou town.
I can not remember much about the hero but I want to say that
the was an old flame that came back into town. I believe there
was a suspense element to it.

The hero is half native American, with unusual green eyes. The
heroine is a shy academic with tumbling locks, who is new to town.
He meets her on the street as shes walking with their mutual
female friend, and he is struck almost dumb by her. I remember
an early scene he tracks her down to her friends
house and when she opens the door her hair is held up in a loose
knot by her pencil. When he pulls the pencil out, her hair comes
tumbling down. Her makes a strong play for her, but she is almost
frightened by the strength of his attraction. I think he begins
to help her with her research.
He likens to her a princess hes never met anyone
like her before and then he realizes that she is completely innocent.
And its his turn to be frightened by the desire
an incident in which they both visit a bar, she is verbally harassed
by a drunk native American who happens to be one of his relatives.
The hero decides that he can never be good enough for her. He
cant escape the legacy of his dysfunctional family. Despite
the fact that our heroine now wants to sleep with him, and is
in love with him, he refuses to take her innocence. He only changes
his mind when she goes out to dinner with another man.
Amidst all this might be a murder/ revenge plot because there
is a fantastic scene in which they come under attack and the heroine
is knocked unconscious. (Is he a cop?) The hero sweeps her up
into his arms (swoon) and rushes with her to hospital with blood
everywhere. He doesnt even know that hes been shot
because hes so concerned with the heroine
he feels guilty all over again. I think it was a shorter book,
like a Silhouette.

I'm looking for a book I read about 4-5 years ago. It's either
a Harlequin or Silouette. It about a woman ( I think her name
is Sarah) who moves from New York and moves to Wyoming or Montana-
to marry a rancher that has to marry and produce an heir to inherit
the ranch. His Grandmother was a famous artist and she had died
and left a will stating that if he could not marry and produce
a legitimit heir her ranch would become a commune for artists.
He already has a teenage son from a high school relationship that
he didn't know he had, I think the son's name is Shell Whitefeather.
The woman (Sarah) doesn't tell the rancher that the reason she
needed a change of pace from the city was because stress had caused
her to have a TIA (small stroke). Oh, his son Shell has his girlfriend
pregnant and he want to marry her but she wants to become a famous
artist in New York and doesn't want to stay in the small town.

I can't remember the book maybe from 90ies. The hero is missing
and presumed dead - I don't remember, but I think in some South
American country. Anyway, after 5 years or so his wife is about
to marry his brother who helped her and her son during the rough
times. Hate it!!! Then suddenly the hero is back home and the
wedding is off. But things don't go smoothly, they feel like strangers,
he can't sleep with her and the boy doesn't remember him. I remember
the scene when the boy had an injury and they're in hospital and
the boy is screaming to his father to go away and that he wants
his uncle...the hero breaks up and cries.
