April # H 1
The book I am looking for is a historical/fantasy novel. It is
a single book and the last time I read it was in the early to mid
'90s. All the details I can remember from it is that the main character
is a young woman who uses a dragon to con money from villages that
are attacked by the dragon. When she is hired by the villagers she
pretends to fight and slay the dragon until one day a monk uses
himself as the virgin sacrifice to catch the dragon.

I read the first page of a historical romance but wasn't able to
continue and can't stop thinking about it. I think it was set in
medieval time period. The main character had two different colored
eyes. She has sisters. I think she was a witch or a healer of some
sort. The cover of the book had a castle on it.

I read this book from a library about 10-12 years on an airplane.
Not the usual historical novel but Iwas hooked for the whole trip.
It's about a woman that lives in a village with her cat , she is
fear by everyone because she might be a witch. She probably is one
and she is then kicked out. Not sure if she had a grandmother. Is
a period book but not sure which.
The book dwells a lot on magic, good and bad. I think that she
falls in love with a man who turns into a tiger, lion... something
like that. First time Iever heard of the term "familiars".
I'm sure if maybe she also turns.

I am looking for another series that takes place in the Lord and
Ladies time in England. It involves members of a family marrying...
The book in the series is the one about the oldest brother (I believe),
that already has a wife, but they are estranged. The other books
in the series always allude to the separation.
April # H 5
It starts out with the Heroine being jilted at the alter by either
the Hero's brother or cousin. The family of the hero, I believe
have a lot of scandal attached to their name and instead of facing
more scandal, the hero just marries the girl.
I can't remember much else except that the Heroine ends up drawing
a picture of the Hero in a scandalous way (either naked or something
else) which somehow ends up in the scandal sheets. This is the first
book of a series, I just can't remember which one and I'm fairly
certain this book has been asked about sometime in the last few
April # H 6
I read an historical romance during the early-to-mid nineties.
The red-haired, violet-eyed (I believe British) heroine, Selena,
was seventeen at the beginning of the book. While searching for
her brother, she meets a much older ship's captain. They have a
passionate encounter after which he sails off. Selena's life takes
a dramatic and at times violent turn (she is assaulted in one of
the chapters). She gives birth to the captain's son and marries
a cruel French lieutenant. After many difficult years, in the end
Selena and the captain reunite. They meet accidentally on his ship
when their little boy brings the captain to Selena. The captain
realizes the little boy is his son and asks Selena for forgiveness.

The main girl is a noblewoman. She thinks her sister wants to marry
a man who is after her money. Her sister was planning to elope with
that guy so the main girl dresses up as a servant to go outside
to stop her sister. When trying to find her sister, she is abducted
by the main guy. She was drugged to have the urge to have intercourse
with him. After the drug wears off, she told him that she was going
to tell on him. To prevent that he took her with him on a ship back
to his home. He tried to seduce her to have sex with him but she
denied him so he drugged her again. In the end she is pregnant and
has a son but she leaves him and goes back home. He doesn't know
that she was pregnant and looks for her every where. Later on he
finds out that she went back home. Her sister does marry that guy
that she eloped with but he is actually rich and loves her sister.
The main girl takes her son, I think to the park and the main guy
comes and says he wants to speak to her but she doesn't want to
speak to him. And then the baby starts to cry, that is when he knew
he had a son.

All Iremember is that it is a Regency with a lot of star ratings.Hero
and heroine had a past and they loved each a lot. Hero belongs to
upper class who intended to marry heroine but due to some misunderstandings
they are seperated. Hero does not know that heroine is pregnant
by him and she has miscarriage. After many years heroine's father(
who works for hero or something) ask hero to marry his daughter
as his dying wish. Hero does not know its the heroine he agreed
to marry.Eventually they marry and the misunderstanding is resolved.
There is another woman who wants to marry hero and she tries to
create problems between hero and heroine. The cover of the book
is very simple with heroine modestly dressed.

I am looking for a historical romance novel that I read about 7-10
years ago. The opening scene had a brother and sister (twins) with
distinctive eyes watching an approaching knight and his band who
were to take control of the castle from a tree. The sister attacks
and wounds the knight but later stitches up his leg as she is the
healer in the castle. The twin brother is part of a rebel group
in the forest and at some point the sister tries to join him. One
of the plot twists was that their mother is related to the King
and they find this out from a birthmark on the girl's leg. The twin
brother in the end is really horrible and tries to sell his sister
to someone but the knight rescues her in the end.

What I remember is: The heroine is living in the country with a
false name (Miss...something). The hero is her husband and he is
a lord. They have been married for years but I think she ran away
from him for some reason and has been in hiding. No one else knows
of their marriage.
In the scene the heroine was going to a meeting/tea with another
lady in the village and her husband is there. All through the meeting
she is worrying that he will reveal her true identity to the lady.
He sort of alludes to it and teases her. But he doesn't. Then we
see the hero leaving the lady's house with one of his friends/brother
(He came with his friend or brother. I cant remember which) I remember
the friend (wanted to) flirted with his wife and outside the house
the hero telling him not to flirt with his wife again. The hero
is going to bring his wife back or win her over. Something about
living like/ pretending to be a bachelor when he was actually married...in
the book I read the excerpt in, I think the other London mothers
were trying to get him to marry to their daughters. I'm not sure
why they got married or the reason for the heroine to flee from
March # H 4
I am looking for a historical romance that includes an older woman
or spinster. I know that the hero is an aristocrat (possibly an
older brother of one of her friends). I think the plot has something
to do with her wanting to experience sex. I believe he volunteers
to teach her in making love. They go to his estate that only has
2 servants for like a month and fall in love there but go separate
ways after. At some point they get back together and possibly there
was a pregnancy. It is not Suddenly You.
