Meri86 I am searching for an harlequin novel that i Can't remember the name. The story is about a woman who works in a company which is going to be taken over by the hero. She took a loan from the business without saying it to her ex boss to help her sick mother. The hero has fallen in love with her on the first sight, but when he discovered the missing money he fired her and later asks her to marry him if she doesn't want to go to prison. She became pregnant with his baby but still he doesn't trust her. I think the story is set in america. Please can anyone remember is name!?!?!?

She tells him the truth that her father forced her to leave the fiance but does not believe her and in the end when they clean the shelf of her father, he comes across a newspaper clipping and he comes to know that he had misjudged her, but she runs and comes under the wheels of a car.

Blue_sky1 I am looking for a harlequin romance book published in the 1990s. The setting is a ranch in Montana or Texas. The heroine come to work in the ranch as a young girl. She falls in love with the owners son, but the hero ignores her. When the owner dies, he leaves the ranch to her and the son, on the condition that they have to marry each other. The hero resists it, but he finally figures out he loves her when her horse gets tangle in the wire fence and she almost dies. He even wants to shoot the horse to save her.

TAMMY S Looking for a book i do believe was a harlequin presents(but not 100% sure). It would have been in the 90's time frame. It was greek hero whom believes his lover, who works for him has betrayed him, he is extremely cruel and she runs off and hides and of course has his child (a daughter). He searches for her and finds her when the daughter is four years old. He is sitting in a car watching her and I do believe that is when he first sees his daughter. The heroine sees him she is terrified, which he was searching for her still out of revenge for what he thinks she did. I remember it was a very heart wrenching story but would like to read again. I just cannot remember name or author of book, anyone have any ideas?

Booklovinglady Wow, some of these authors were already writing 40 years ago, when I was a teenager...! Anne Mather to name just one; I just loved her Leopard in the Snow. Here in the Netherlands we had 'Bouquet Reeks' (published by Harlequin) and I, and my schoolmates with me, used to devour the four books published each month :-) I think 'Bouquet Reeks' still exist, by the way.

Have your tried What's the Name of That Book??? yet?


message 24: by Susan (new)

Susan Cook The plot, he seduces and marries her in a hurry. Yet as soon as they are married he locks her up and tells her it was all revenge for a car accident where he thinks she was driving that killed someone he loved. Anyone know the name of this book? Not positive if it was Harlequin or Silhouette romance but it was not blaze, desire, temptation, or super romance etc. It might have been one of the first presents... I know I am aging myself there lol.
