☘Katie☘ | 36 comments I'd like to nominate:

Man of My Dreams (Sherring Cross, #1) by Johanna Lindsey

and

Loving a Lost Lord (Lost Lords #1) by Mary Jo Putney

Mariana | 2227 comments I second Man of My Dreams (Sherring Cross, #1) and nominate Thief of Hearts by Teresa Medeiros.

Jan (jan130) | 1766 comments I nominate Joanna Bourne's The Forbidden Rose. Chronologically, this is the first in her terrific Spymasters series. Set in French Revolution times in France, it's a really good read. Sexy H, great, fast-moving plot, mistaken identities, adventure. This book opened my eyes to the possibilities of spy-themed HRs, which formerly I had never liked.
The Forbidden Rose (Spymasters, #3) by Joanna Bourne

My second nomination is Lisa Kleypas' lovely book, Love in the Afternoon. It's the final book in the Hathaways series, but I believe could be read as a standalone. Beatrix writes to Christopher who is away at war, pretending to be their friend Prudence, because Prudence has lost interest in writing back to Christopher, and Beatrix feels sorry for him. When Christopher comes home, it becomes clear to him that Prudence did not write those beautiful, emotional letters that meant so much to him. But who did write them????? And how can Beatrix reveal her identity?
Love in the Afternoon (The Hathaways, #5) by Lisa Kleypas

Although I've read both of these books, it was only once, and I'd be happy to reread either.

Thief of Hearts sounds like a good one too! :)

Both would be rereads for me too but I would gladly do it. Two of my favorite books in HR :)

I nominate My Lady, My Lord which has a forced identity switch in an unusual way. I guess I have been interested in reading Katharine Ashe lately so hence where I am pulling my nominations from lately. She has some spy themed books that would also work, but this is a fun twist on the trope.

I want to read that one too.

Missy | 847 comments Confessions of an Improper Bride (Donovan Sisters, #1) by Jennifer Haymore Confessions of an Improper Bride by Jennifer Haymore.

After the Abduction (Swanlea Spinsters, #3) by Sabrina Jeffries After the Abduction by Sabrina Jeffries. This is book 3 in the series. It looks like book 1 also has a hidden identity trope if anyone wants to nominate it.

Melissa | 231 comments I nominate The Devil To Pay by Liz Carlyle and St. Raven by Jo Beverley.

Love in the afternoon is one of my absolutely favorites by Kleypas! I so want a re-read now

Jultri | 393 comments My Lady Thief - Excellent enemies to lovers trope where the heroine hides a secret or two. Beautifully written, with fleshed our protagonists and an equal blend of humour and angst.

I was going to nominate Karen Ranney's "Till Next We Meet" but it's too angsty and heart-heavy and we need something lighter after April's BOTM.

Therefore my second nomination goes to Noble Cause: A Novel of Love and War for something different. Sweeping Civil War saga which revolves around Andrea Evans aka Sinclair, the dare-devil Union scout, and her antagonist, legendary Captain Hunter of the Confederate army who swears to capture this evasive Yankee 'youth' and bring 'him' to justice. Gorgeous writing, intelligent and often humorous dialogue, and spirited characters.


message 17: by Rose (new)

Rose Vane | 9 comments I nominate Christina Dodd's Rules of Engagement in the Governess Brides series. In the book the heroine disguises herself as a dowdy governess in the household of a cynical earl who's adopted an orphan just in order to look respectable. The book is wonderfully humorous, and the secondary characters fit nicely in the picture - especially the earl's wickedly funny grandfather.

Jan (jan130) | 1766 comments It's great to see all these nominations popping up. Quite a few I haven't read that I'm going to have a look at now.


Midniteillusion (Desiree) (midniteillusion) | 101 comments I'd love to read more Lisa Kleypas and her books Somewhere I'll Find You Somewhere I'll Find You (Capital Theatre, #1) by Lisa Kleypas fits.

Beast Beast by Judith Ivory by Judith Ivory has been on my TBR list for awhile too.

Beast [bookcover:Beast|113087..."


The Lord Next Door or The Duke in Disguise by Gayle Callen


message 21: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca | 4 comments I would like to nominate When Passion Rules by Johanna Lindsey
The heroine finds out she's actually a princess and goes to claim her birthright. They believe she's an imposter and treat her as such.
