It was written in either the 1980s or early 1990s. The plot revolved
around a heroine who agreed to be impregnated by the hero's ill
(and dying?) brother. The brother though, is too unwell, to go through
with the act and the hero comes in and has sex with her, so she
is pregnant with his child instead.
I seem to remember it taking place on a tropical island and it may
have otherwise been set in Australia.

It is a contemporary (I believe it might have been a mills&boon
etc). It begins with the woman accidentally driving down a one way
road and crashing into a very expensive car. Once insurance info
is exchanged (during which she told him it was her birthday and
she broke up with her boyfriend) they go their separate ways. She
then goes to see him at his office as her insurance won't pay, he
is some rich high powered guy and they are kidnapped while in the
parking garage. They escape and have to walk through snow and she
nearly gets hypothermia. In the end I believe she finds out she's
She is also a artist/painter and she has a quirk where she cannot

I am not sure how old the book is. Read it a few years ago, but
got it at a used book store. It takes place in current time. The
heroine goes on a vacation on a beach I believe and is on a jet
ski and hits the hero, blinding him. He had previously warned her
to be more careful on the water. She ends up taking care of him
and he is unaware that she is the one who blinded him. When he finally
regains his sight he realizes who she is and gets mad at her. She
leaves and he goes after her. I think she was originally living
with a friend or at a friends place that had a parrot. When he went
to that place the heroine was gone and the friend was there and
talked to him.

I read it maybe a couple of years ago. When the woman was young
( maybe 18 or 19) she married but wasn't really ready. I believe
her husband was a cop. I know she came from money and was spoiled
and was very selfish in the marriage. She got pregnant but miscarried
when she accidently fell while riding a horse. Her husband thought
she did it on purpose and divorced her. Years later she matures
and tries to win him back.

I read a book about 5 years ago, it revolved around a kidnap plot.
I believe it's based in italy, a woman (fair haired) was hired by
a wealthy buisness man to tutor his unruly teenage daughter, he
also has a son soon to inherit and take over when he retires. Upon
the tutors arrival his son becomes infatued, she dosent feel the
same way and often laughs off any attempts he makes towards her.
Their father (the wealthy business man) had already arranged for
his son to marry another wealthy solciate and to join both families,
but after seeing his sons behaviour towards his daughters new tutor
he plots to have her kidnapped. The tutor and her student went to
a museum or gallery one day, upon exiting or arriving a black limosine
pulls up and it becomes clear that she and her student are in danger.
She tries to struggle and fight for their freedom when one of her
captors suddenly loses patience and punches her, before succumbing
to unconciousness another man catches her and punches the guy who
hurt her, then all went dark. Next she found herself awake in the
limo held against a hard chest. Her breathing stilled and he knew
she was awake, (I cannot remember the exact discussion but she felt
aroused near him) the tutor and her student were kept in the same
room and the tutor tried eveything to calm her student down while
trying to figure out why they were here. Still confused as to why
they want her she demands to see who's in charge only to discover
its the man she's unwillingly attracted to, she asks to write to
her stepfather who has some money and he agrees. Its not long before
they are on the move and the tension between them intensifies, they
have sex and she falls deeper for him. I remember a boat and an
opportunity where she could escape and she took it and fled to the
man who hired her to teach his daughter. She learns the truth and
is confronted with many emotions, she realises she's in love and
her captor feels the same way.

In the early 1990s I read a romance novel (maybe Silhouette Desire?
I remember a red cover) The book was about a woman traveling through
Europe. She meets a man and he pursues her. He is very romantic
and helps her live out her romantic dreams while traveling through
Europe. She talks about the fact that she left her husband behind
in America because he was not there for her and neglected her, etc.
and she did not feel loved. This man she meets is the "perfect"
man in her mind. She finally has to return to the states and at
the end of the story you find out the "perfect" man is
actually her husband who pursued her to show her that she was wrong
and that he did love her and they have a happy ending.
