It's a great book especially if you like suspense. I definitely enjoyed the series because, I like suspense and, trying to figure out what will happen next. Gordon Korman really makes the characters come alive and, he draws you in with great action and mysteries. If you like suspense, mystery, and an action packed book, I think that you'll like the Kidnapped series because, it has all of that and more. View 1 comment. This book was okay Also I didn't like the fact that the adults were too stupid and Meg was smarter. It makes sense for Meg to be kind of smarter and able to handle the situation better than other kids of her age cause of what she and her brother faced before.
However, for criminologists, their parents are too stupid and I hate how they won't take Aiden's hunches seriously.. Also it doesn't really make sense why the kidnappers targete This book was okay Also it doesn't really make sense why the kidnappers targeted the Falconers. If all they wanted was a ransom, they could have targeted anyone else right? And they should be aware that Meg and Aiden are kind of tougher than other kids of their age, so why would they just make it harder for themselves?
Jul 31, Jill rated it liked it Shelves: ra-shortlist. Aiden just wants life to go back to normal, but everything has changed. Because of the pacing, this is a great quick read, and might be a good recommendation for reluctant readers—especially those who enjoy action movies. This book is thrilling without being scary, which makes it a great read for a variety of tastes. It might also appeal to fans of survival stories, as Meg tries several ways to escape her captors and leave clues for her brother, which creates a survival-story vibe.

As with the first Falconer series, it's a high-tension quick read. The kids are clever and resourceful. I especially enjoyed the introduction of Richie, Aiden's best friend, whom he's having trouble relating to in his post-fugitive life.
On to book two! May 15, Wes Flease rated it it was amazing. Personal Response: I think this book was good because it was very realistic. This book could be shocking or scary for some people because an eleven year old girl was abducted. The book had lots of action in it which makes me want to keep reading.
I also liked how they went back and forth from two different points in the book. It made it so you were always taking in new information. Recommendation: I would recommend this to anyone ninth grade and up because its a little more serious. Or people who Personal Response: I think this book was good because it was very realistic. Or people who have an interest in action.
Also people who like to be surprised by what happens next. Plot summary: Meg is not an average 11 year old girl. Her parents were put in jail and she was on the run with her brother for months on end, all to find out they were framed. The family is still hated by lots of people. Meg and her brother are on there way home from school when Meg is captured and her brother is left to find her. The police and her brother have to find Meg before it's too late. Feb 17, Kimberly Larreta rated it really liked it. This book is about this girl who got kidnapped while going home with her brother.
While they were walking a van pulled up and they snatched Meg the girl away from her brother but they were all wearing animal masks and they took her far away. Days later her brother is still searching and the kidnappers were sending her family that they wanted 2 million dollars. But then Meg realizes that her search was very far away. I would recommend this book to people who like mystery books. Jan 04, Amy Angel rated it really liked it. This book was about a girl her name is Meg.

Meg and her brother Aiden where walking home from school. When hey where walking there way to there house a van pulls up and pulls Meg inside the van. Aiden started to run but he couldn't get closer to the van. Aiden never give up on his sister. I would recommend this book to the people who like drama.
Sep 22, Andrea Medina rated it really liked it. The book was about Meg being kidnapped and her brother,Aiden Never gave up to find her. This book was very sad and it seemed like it was really happening in real life. I would recommend this book to all the kids who have been kidnapped. Sep 01, Emily rated it really liked it Shelves: middle-grade. Talk about an edge-of-your seat series! Book 1 starts the action off with a quick reflection on the lives of the Falconer family post-On The Run apparently a preceding series also by Gordon Korman.
Only a couple of minutes in, and the action is ON in trademark GK style. I've read the Dive, Everest, and Island trilogies, and this one is more in line with the action of Island, but with less disgusting crises, though still quite high in suspense. Meg is kidnapped early on in the story, and t Wow! Meg is kidnapped early on in the story, and the book switches POVs between Meg and Aiden, her brother.
This book along with book 2 ends with a cliffhanger, making me really glad that I borrowed all 3 at the same time! I HAD to keep reading to find out what was going to happen. These books are leveled as early 5th grade, and that's also the age I would recommend. The series as a whole contains some violent incidences, but they are not graphic.
Dec 18, Sophie Gootter rated it liked it. John and Louise Falconer were doctors until one day they were sentenced to life in prison because they were accused of helping foreign terrorists. The Falconer family was now extremely well known and hated by the whole nation, including the children.
The couple was in jail for 14 months until they were proven innocent because they were framed. During the time the Falconer parents were in jail, their two kids were in a juvenile detention center until they escaped. Aidan and Meg were now fugitives and were on the run for eight weeks. Eventually the entire Falconer family was reunited and tried to live a normal life though they were still hated by millions. Overview: The family tried to lead normal lives but it was especially difficult for Aidan and Meg.
The most significant detail is that the Falconers are disliked by the majority of the people in the nation. They had lost all their friends due to the incident and they often found themselves alone. Surely things should be getting easier by now. Were he and Meg doomed to be outcasts and misfits forever? Luckily, Aidan still had one friend by the name of Richie.
One day, while the kids were walking home from school, a white van drove up to them and out came three people in masks. They suddenly took a handkerchief, put it over Megs nose and mouth and she passed out. The handkerchief had chloroform on it. They put Meg in the back of their van and drove away. Aidan chased the van trying to rescue his sister but it was too late. Meg was taken to a part of town where there is tons of abandoned factories and her kidnappers take her into one and thats where she is kept.
Meg attempts to escape from her kidnappers a total of three times. This could be a way of foreshadowing what might happen in the next book. Had Meg just signed her own death warrant? You also read about how the rest of the Falconers are doing while Meg is missing. Because the Falconer family is so well known by the public, there is constantly press outside their home.
Chapter Layout and Narration: Every other chapter in the book is from Megs perspective and what shes going through while being kidnapped along with the different ways she tries to escape and send out clues to the public from captivity. How the family is feeling, what the FBI is doing about it, and different leads they get to find Meg. This book is narrated in first and third person. The Ending: This book is part of a two part series which I did not realize until I was finished with the book and it left off on a cliffhanger. This is the first book in the series. If you want to know whether or not Meg gets rescued from her kidnappers you would have to read the second book as well.
The second book leaves off where this first one ends. The book finishes off with a very exciting and nerve-racking adventure where the kidnappers send an e-mail to the Falconers telling them that they need Aidan to meet them at a specific phone booth with 2 million dollars in cash and then they will give Meg back to them. The FBI gets the money needed and Aidan goes to the phone booth. The kidnappers lead him all over town until eventually he get to a giant parade where the kidnappers try and take the money and Aidan ends up in the hospital.
Meg is still in captivity and the huge attempt at rescuing her was a failure. My Personal Opinion: This book is very easy to read and follow. I still think it was one of Janet Dailey's State books, but it might have been the one about Utah. Land Of Enchantment was set in New Mexico. Katybear, Check out this page, which lists books that touch on the Robin Hood legend and characters.
Many of those listed are romances. The story opens on Elyse overseeing the wedding preparation of her cousin female. During the ceremony she slips away to the bridal chambers to make sure every thing is everything where she is kidnapped by Max and his cronies.
Any suggestions to the title and author would be really appreciated, I am longing to re-read this story. Dainty, that sounds an awful lot like Jude Devereaux 's Velvet Angel. The hero's name was Miles, though, and the heroine's was Elizabeth. He kidnapped her by mistake in a rolled up carpet. I read it not too long ago. They end up in the north wintering over in a castle and getting involved with some bad guys from the hansiatic league. I was thinking it was set in the Elizabethan era, though. It's one of Woodiwiss' best, in my opinion. Wasn't the heroine in that one also rolled up in a carpet?
Thanks a million, katybear. You guys are the best. But Knight in Shining Armor is awesome! Dainty - Glad to help! I'm not nearly as well-read romance-wise as most of the people here, so I confess I was absurdly excited when I recognized the book! Don't you just love those tried n true plot devices? I got three books that I need help finding one is driving me "bonkers" 'cause I didn't like it the first time around, but message 21 sounds like it and I thought I knew the name, and the more I try to remember ahh I don't remember the author.
He's a utter bastard, but considering that his little daughter screams evertime he comes near her that would make anyone mad at the world. They met on a ship, the hero having a hard time comforting his travel-worn daughter, and the heroine who happen to be a spy for her side is carrying some priceless porcelain doll which she kindly lends the child. Somehow losses sight of them in the crowd and has to track down the guy, the child and the doll, because the doll has a secret compartment with vital info need by her side.
I think the guy was also a spy for his side too. She did find them and had to pose as a nanny for hire so that she can steal the doll back before its secrets are discovered. The Duke is dead and his brother plots to do away with the new born heiress and assume the title. The dying duchess is aware of the plot and after the delivery of her daughter she details the plot in a letter which she places in the spine of her bible and on her the last of her dying strength she takes the newborn, warms the family seal and brands the child on her "butt".
Child escape death as the henceman kind of a Finnegan character the villain used decided to raise the child as his own so one day he can claim the title thru the child. She's raised as a pickpocket and on her first time out she gets caught by the hero who likens her appearance to one of their ilk. Hi Everyone!
Actually found the title right one, silly me and the author of book 1. It's called Loving Julia by Karen Robards which was suggested to me on talk forum at www. I usually like time travel stories too. It appears to be a book that generates a lot of divided opinion. A lot of people really like it, but an equal number seem to hate it. I'm looking for two books: 1 is a gothic romance, and I only remember a few details. First, it was by an author I wasn't familiar with, and had a black cover with no people on it. I know that the hero accused the heroine of being a witch, which she denied, but after they slept together, he made note that she had two "witches marks" that were birthmarks above her pubic line.
Also, she was clueless about sex, and asked the hero what "fellate me" meant because she overheard another man say it to a woman I remember he had to teach her all about sex, and she was so afraid of it, that he tied himself up for her so she wouldn't have to fear being overpowered. I remember she wore a jean skirt with buttons all the way to the floor, and they had sex on a kitchen table. Thanks, Ireland. Now if I could only get relief from the 3RD.
This one I found on another site and it sounds so good, I would like to read it Ring any bells? Message 43 O. I know this is kind of late but I just read your 3 as part of my search - I am still looking for the book above in post I see you found it. Hi Winnie, Whisper to Me of Love isn't your book of 21? I could have sworn that your book was solved in another thread Anyho, here's an overview for Whisper to Me of Love by Shirlee Busbee A whisper of Passion She was a raven-haired waif from the streets of london - a wild innocent to be rescued A spirited beauty she would captivate Royce Manchester's jaded heart-while resisting the smoldering desire she felt for her virile protector.

A whisper of Danger In Royce's glittering world of money and privilege, young Morgana discovered the shocking sercret of her true identity- entangling the wealthy American planter in a deadly skein of aristocratic family intrugue. But grave evil would only feed the flames of love that knew no bounds and glorious rapture that would not be denied. Hope you find your story. She's supposed to be watching this one guy and there is a scene with him where he is giving her a massage with oil etc.
I got it at this used book sale these old ladies in my neighborhood had in their garage but after i read my grandma took and i never saw it again. Here's another one. This book is called something like Second Chance or something to that effect. It's about this deaf woman a scientist who dies getting hit by a car while crossing a street after work. She goes to a "heaven" like place where this apparent angel tells her she wasn't supposed to die so she gets another chance.
She ends up in the pass in the body of this woman who was in a coma maybe? It ends happily ever after with her wining back the husbands love And one more kind of similar to the last one. Starts out with this car crash scene. Woman in car crash hits her head apparently and can't remember anything of who she is. Her husband finds her but she doesn't recognize him and passes out and into a coma.
She wakes has no idea about anything, doesn't even recognize her own face. She goes home and the reader gradually finds out that she was not a nice person but since she can't remember She lives in a huge house with her husband and these apparently French siblings who work for her and her husband. Anyways she kind of starts to remember, makes up with her husband Who does end of rescuing her. So there are my vague summaries of books i read at one type and can't remember. I've been looking for these forever it seems like cuz they were really good Help!
Do you all know about Byron? The last one sounds a little like a Theresa Charles book which was published as both Dark Legacy and Happy now I go, neither of which touchstone. I love this book. I don't think it's that one since I remember it being more contemporary then that It was republished in the 80s, but it was very much set in WW2.
Although since it was written during WW2 orignally the "feel" is more contemporary. Sort of. But the French part is not it. A woman wakes up in the hospital in France after a car crash. She has amnesia and doesn't recognize the man who claims to be her husband. He lives in a castle with his mother and sister -- and they have a daughter she doesn't remember either.
Eventually it turns out to be a case of mistaken identity. Too bad no one else recognizes my first one! It sounds interesting. I just added it to the Romantic Times Book Sleuth discussion thread, though. Winnie, I don't see a post that you found your book 21 yet. Could it be Love's Charade by Jane Feather? Oh, this is so exciting!
The book I'm looking for is a totally trashy romance my cousin and I read for the sex scenes when we were younger. It involved this guy who was a teacher or a professor and had bright red hair. Anyway, he had sex with a bunch of girls, and they all came back to this reunion with batches of redhaired children It was cheesy, but I remember it so vividly and wish I could find it again! Anybody recognize it? No sorry. But welcome to the group superblondgirl! Jenson, According to the people on the Romantic Times Message Boards, my book 2 up there is Fantasy by Lori Foster , which they say was originally published as part of a series romance and then repubed after she got famous.
I've got it bookmooched now, but I haven't received it yet, so I'll let you know when I get it in. Ireland, I have Foster's Fantasy, but I didn't recognize it from the bits you remembered. Here's the blurb from the back cover: Security consultant Sebastian Sinclair agrees to be sold at a bachelor auction. Being bought is one thing, now he's about to be given away as a gift for some lucky birthday girl.
But one look at Brandi Sommers and Sebastian can't wait to be unwrapped. Brandi really means it when she says "Oh, you shouldn't have" to her sister's outrageous birthday gift, a five-day dream vacation to a lovers' retreat. Lover included. What's she going to do in paradise with the sexy stranger Sebastrian Sinclair?

Brandi soon discovers she can do whatever she wants. I remember this one now. If you like Fantasy, and you haven't read the other Visitation books, you should. They are all fabulous! I hope someone can tell me what this book is. I read it years ago, from the library, and could never figure out what the book was after I sent it back. I don't know names either. All I remember was that the lady was going on vacation in either scotland or england.
She was staying in a type of lodge or log cabin. There was something magical that appeared, some type of God or Faery. They fell in love. It was forbidden for him to love someone, so he was sent back to no-where land before a council to get his fate judged. She went home and balled her eyes out.
She told her sister or someone close to her about him, and the person was convinced that it was all a dream, that she had from the plot of a book she was reading. She convinced herself of that too. Then months later he moves in across the street from her, and thats the end of the book. I keep thinking that he begged the councel to send him back as a person so they could have a life together. BUT I have a very active imagination, so I don't know if that was in there or if I just dreamed it up myself when the book was done with.
Thanks :D. The Secret Life of Bryan was one of my faves of the visitation series.

I'll have to check out fantasy, it sounds good. Ireland, it will be interesting to see if they got the right book. CrazyDaisyLou - It kind of sounds like a short story I read in Man of My Dreams which was an anthology except the ending it much, much different. In this short story the heroine is a librarian who discovers her former lover at a solstace celebration. He left her because he had been taken by the fairies and was the consort of the fairy queen. It's probably not the same one but I thought I'd mention it. It does sound like a very good story, hope you figure out what it is.
There is a Johanna Lindsey with a plot like this. The heroine is named Rosalind or something like that and is a medieval history professor. She collects swords and bought one that was cursed and brought forth Thor, a Viking warrior. They fall in love and travel through time, and the only way to break the curse is if she voluntarily gives him the sword back, which she does to free him, but it send them back to their respective times.
Her brother and best friend both tell her she's been sick and it's been a dream or some such thing and at the end Thor does appear in her time as a modern man, having appealed to Odin in Valhalla to give him a second chance at life. I think it was called Until Forever or something like that. Her name is Roseleen, but other than that you are on the mark gracer.
It is called Until Forever. I don't usually read contemporaries, but I remember reading one when I was younger that I would like to find again. It was written in the 80s and followed the romantic lives of music prodigies who meet at school as teenagers. It followed them into adulthood and was an old school 80s epic.
The main character is a virtuoso girl who is considerably younger than the others who has a serious case of unrequited love for the big man on campus. He de-flowers her an expression one never uses outside of a romance novel and then walks out on her. They wind up getting together years later and she of course has only ever had sex once with him as a teenager because who knows. They also have a male friend who is involved in some weird bi-threesome plot where he refers to some sex act as being as romantic as "changing a light bulb.
Thanks so much Gracer and LucyMaude. I hope this is it, it sounds like it is. I'm surprised I don't have it, considering I've collected 25 Johanna Lindsey novels so far. But I'm 25, and it's been at least 9 years since I read it, and I didn't even actually own any books back then. I am SO going out tomorrow to look for it. Remember Me there are 3 of them. I am still looking for the book in message Here is the description from bn.

Hi Winnie, i thought it might be The Rogue and the Hellion by Connie Mason as she is a highwayman, but found out to be a girl, he takes her back to teach her a lesson but she turns out to be a lady!
But then i realised it wasn't published until , might have been re-released, but i thought it was worth a mention just incase Hope you find what yr looking for! Her flirtatious sister, Daphne, is engaged to a man who will only inherit if he is married by a certain date.
Daphne elopes, leaving behind a note and her wedding dress. Sophie shows up at the altar, but Alex, the bridegroom, recognizes her for who she is. They agree to marry to allow him to inherit and her to save face for her sister. It does sound familiar, but I am at a loss as well. The names of the sisters are different, but the plot sounds very similar.
In the Bradley story, the sisters are twins. Could be it. I found a description: Lovely Sophia Forest was a very intellectual young lady for the year in Regency England--quite different from her beautiful and flighty sister, Daphne. All London was agog when Sophia rather than Daphne wed the dashing Earl of Gresham, whose scorn for bookish females was well-known. The marriage was intended as a business arrangement only--to preserve the Earl's fortune and give Sophia financial independence. But what was Sophia to do when she found herself enamoured of her husband, though too proud to admit it?
Sophia needed all her wit and womanly wiles in a game of pretense and passion, to make the man she loved, love her. We'll see if it's the right one. It's original copyright date was Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me find the names of two books I read some years ago. I believe they were published around always before August I believe they are from British authors. They are both romances. One has a yellow cover with little cakes or cupcakes - I don't recall on them. She shares her house with some friends. The book is really funny. The other one has a light blue cover and I don't remember the story that well.
I do know that in the end, the guy gives the girl a unique rose that he himself well, his company I guess created by matching 2 types of roses. In this last one, I just remembered that in the beginning, the girl is trying some clothes in a shop and afraid of a bee runs topless through the shop and bumps into the guy. Well, I know it's not much, but if anyone could help, I'd be very grateful.
Thank you very much. I love that you guys have this section. New here, so please bear with me. I also think she had a girlfriend who runs a local bookshop. I know it isn't much to go on, but every time I think I may be remembering more of the story I start to think I'm combining two stories into one. It's driving me batty. Nyah99 -- yellow cover with possible cupcakes reminds me of He Loves Lucy by Susan Donovan , but I'm not sure that's your book. This one takes place in Miami? The heroine has a goal to lose weight for publicity with the hero being her trainer.
Not one of the Bridgertons I'll dig around a bit and see if I can come up with a title. Thank you so much both of you. Thank you again. Thank you for your help. I've just found the name of the other book. First of all, its cover is not blue, but white.
Aviddiva- Thanks. It could be Amanda Quick, though I still can't seem to place it. And it seems like she has several with trading places type themes. I'll keep digging thru her stuff and see, though I appreciate you still looking as well. The Duke's grandfather corresponds with the heroine and carries on the courtship. Grandpa dies and when grandson comes back from the war, he finds out he is engaged to her.
Grandson goes to confront her, she thinks he is the new footman she has hired and the story then continues. It's pretty funny actually. Hope this helps. In that book, the hero is disguised as the heroine's butler. He is a spy and the powers that be believe that her deceased husband had something of importance he was a spy too. There is also a Julia Quinn where the hero shows up and pretends to be her estate manager or something similar.
She's the impoverished daughter of an earl or something similar who is working as a paid companion to a crotchety old lady who's nephew is a Marquis posing as her estate manager to get to the bottom of who is blackmailing her. Very funny and entertaining! Thanks guys. Oddly, I have missed all of those and will now be reading those to see if maybe I've just lost my entire peas sized brain and maybe DID actually read one of those.
Hopefully it'll come to me soon as it's still tickling the back of my mind constantly. Very sad I tell you. Thanks again! I'm pretty sure its a historical romance but all i remember is that the hero if the book is sold at an auction. He is bought by a woman for her daughter. I don't remember the name or the author of the book. I have a vague memory of one like that as well, but can't quite place it.
I need some help with a book title too, It's a historical romance and the lady poses as a highwayman to take cre of the estate. The lady also posed as an ugly crone on the night their supposed meeting. Not quite sure this fits the bill but My Lady Notorius by Jo Beverley has a highwayman heroine with a cruel father and brother. She is trying to protect her widowed sister and baby who the father is trying to marry off to some awful man.
The book is part of the Malloren series and takes place in Georgian England. The one you describe sounds familiar too but so far it's escaping me! Hi everyone! Here goes nothing I'm looking for a book that's been bugging me for about a month now. I don't know the title or author or character names.
I think the "hero" is from a well-known, well-off family. I know the "heroine" is from a poor family. She has red hair. I'm not sure if she has an older brother or dad. I remember the first chapter or so clearly, but not sure if the rest when they're older is correct or from another story. I think the two sisters were off to the store I think the sister was hitting on the guy Sadly, that's all I remember. I keep thinking Linda Howard, but I just don't know Thank-you for any help you guys can give. I will try my best to do the same.
Thank you again! It is! Thank-you so much! I cannot believe how I could have overlooked that! I had a feeling it might've been Linda Howard Thank-you again! Hi Suge, I tried to read all the threads and it doesn't look as if anyone had named your book, but I have the answer! It was one of the first romance novels I ever owned and one I go back to and reread every now and then!
Hi, all--I'm trying to find a certain book. It was out in paperback before probably well before that. The setting is definitely 19th century or earlier nobility, etc. I remember two main things about it: earlier on, there's a scene where the heroine is in the library with the hero moonlight, filmy nightgown, lots of sexual tension ; later, he kidnaps her and they're in an inn--very steamy sex then. If any of you can help, it would be much appreciated! Isisreads, if you reverse the order of the scenes with the library later than the inn , there are two scenes very similar to what you've described in Judith Ivory 's Untie My Heart.
It's my least favourite Ivory book but lots of other people absolutely love it. Of course, an inn and a library are kind of popular settings for historical romance, so any other details you can supply might help readers here pinpoint the book you're looking for. I'm looking for a book I read around 5 or 6 years ago so let's say for starters that I picked up at a book sale at the local library.
So it had probably been around for a while before that. The setting of the novel is I believe in a sort of system similar to 19th or 18th century England where there were still nobles around that controlled estates and whatnot. Additionally, fine carriages and at least unsophisticated firearms were around too if I remember correctly. The plot revolves around a heroine named Kate or something similar - I want to say her full name was Kathleen or Katherine or something along those lines who has gotten stuck with running the family estate because her brother, who should be in charge, is incompetent and doesn't really do anything.
At the same time she's riding around in dark clothes on a black horse, holding up stagecoaches for some odd reason. It had to do with the family honor - I want to say she was looking to catch smugglers or something along those lines? Don't remember too well. But she's holding up these coaches looking for something. Now a gentleman from somewhere else visits the estate for a bit for some reason or another and love begins to spark between him and Kate don't remember his name, sorry.
He begins to deduce that she's the highwayman in question and follows her one night when she makes a run. Things go wrong on this trip and she gets shot by a guy in the carriage but the gentleman saves her and brings her back to her home. He then covers for her in order to make sure no one else found out about her double life. Near the end of the story Kate finds that some of her brother's friends one creepy guy in particular who keeps on hitting on her are performing some criminal activity on the family land. She gets captured and the gentleman goes to save her, killing the ringleader in a duel.
So yeah sorry there aren't too many specific details but that's what I remember from the book. Hope someone can help me find it - even a couple of general titles that might fit the profile would help!

Hello from Australia — I am searching for a book — unknown title or author The other central character is the dashing pirate who attempts to seduce and control her. Cheers from Aus, Tan. I need some help to name a book. I know the book was a Harlequin Presents I want to say around or later about a married guy who was dating another younger woman.
She stops the affair and he tries to convince her not to. He worked for father-in-law. The man's wife was a paralytic, and at the end of the book, she leaves the husband for her nurse? If anybody could remember the title, I would appreciate. It has been bothering me about remembering the title. Hi Guys, I am new to this group, and I was hoping to get some help finding a book i read around It is basically about a temporary housekeeper or a helper who is 8 months pregnant, and you later find out that she is a virgin.
The owner of the house who is a businessman, ends up falling in love with her. I think in the scene that she tells the hero that she is a virgin is where she is getting made fun off by local boys, as she is young and seen as easy because she winds up pregnant. She is actually a surrogate for her sister and her husband, but both die in an accident leaving her alone. To take care of herself and the child, she gets this temp job. I believe she is Italian. He also helps her give birth to the child in his house, which i think is a girl.
The last scene is of them getting married, and she is walking down the aisle, looking at the baby and thinking about everything. I have been trying to recall this book for a long time but as it is one of the first ones I read, I don't remember more about it. I have looked through many book lists and themed lists to find it including all romance writers, romancewiki, and fictiondb. I would really appreciate any help i get. I think the heroine has never been rich, and I am positive the setting is in the U. But thanks anyways.
