I'm looking for a book, Harlequin Presents, the usual rich guy
working girl or poor girl story. In this case the girl is a land
scaper and the guy has an evil aunt. In one scenario she begs him
not to leave her to see his ex- girlfriend or something but he leaves
and she almost loses the baby.

I was wondering if you could help me find the title and author
of a Harlequin book. It's about an uptight red haired woman who
is on her way to try and stop her sister from marrying a rich man.
It was the same mistake she made and hasn't even seen her family
since following the rich man to a city far away.
She meets a rich man at the airport who asks her to watch his bag.
They have a spark but her hatred for rich men is obvious. After
arriving at their destination, she ends up boarding a ferry with
the same man and they have to share a bunk. Eventually we discover
that he is on the way to stop his brother from marrying the girl's
sister because he feels that she is just marrying him for money.
The story takes place somewhere else (like Iceland maybe?). Loved
reading about the town and the scenic descriptions were amazing!

I read a book in the late 80's, early 90's where the heroine came
from a military family. She married a military officer (who I think
was called Patrick). He went to war (Vietnam?) and went missing
in action. The heroine became very anti-military and cut herself
off from her family. The story begins when the heroine is told that
her husband is alive, has been a prisoner of war for many years
but has now been released and wants to see her. The only other thing
I remember is that Patrick played a joke when training as an officer
and wore a string of pearls under his dress uniform.

the heroine knowing that there was no hope for them since her friend
is pregnant. The friend then tells the hero in front of his mother

near the end where the friend comes to the museum wearing designer

He comes back next year (New Year"s Eve?) and tracks her down,
sees baby. Could be an early Silhouette or Candelight.

I am looking for a book, and I hope that you can help me. I believe
that the book is a Harlequin, but I could be mistaken. I cannot
remember any of the character names, and it's been several years
since I read it. The story is about a man who is the owner of a
landscaping business. While driving through a neighborhood, he almost
runs over a woman who falls and skins her knees and cannot walk
back to her home. He takes her back, and as an apology, he offers
to redo her flower beds. The woman has issues with her self confidence
(cant' remember if it's because of an ex- or what). They fall in
love and are planning to go away on a weekend. She realizes she's
pregnant and then thinks she's miscarrying, so she makes up an excuse
to not go. He comes back to overhear a message from the doctor's
office about the appointment. He thinks she's getting an abortion
and gets very angry because his ex- got an abortion without telling
him. She tells him that she thinks she's miscarried, but that she
wanted the baby. They go together to appt, find out she didn't miscarry,
that it was just physical issues she had been having. The story

This involves a surgeon or Doctor who was married to a beautiful
woman (she may have been a model) who was spoilt and selfish. The
doctor has to travel but the wife was ill but wanted to come. He
said no, so she had a cousin (the heroine) who came to stay with
her to care for her. The wife intentionally exposed herself to cold.
The heroine had a heart condition and had a mild heart attack while
the wife was exposing herself. Heroine could not care for the wife
so she died. I don't remember much else; it seem another heart attack
brought the heroine and and the doctor back together.
