The grammar was so bad throughout this book. Entire sentences were just gibberish. I briefly thought that maybe the book was written originally in another language, and then poorly translated to English. I had to read and reread sections multiple times to try to understand what the author might have been trying to convey, and still had to guess at times or just gave up and skipped it.
I was so disappointed, as I recently started following this author. She seriously needs to hire a professional editor or few. If all the errors were fixed this could be a 4 star book. The only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 is because the characters are somewhat relatable, and the storyline is interesting. I stuck with it, and struggled through the awful writing, so I could find out how the story ended but I wanted to chuck my phone across the room a few times because the writing was so frustrating. Do yourself a favor and skip this one! What a great start for Staci Stallings' new series.
I love how she expresses the emotions, the feelings, the struggles and the passion of her characters. Paige and Nelson are high school students who are individually struggling with finding their place in life. The truly amazing thing is, as I was reading this book, I could see my own child who just graduated from high school, struggling with the exact same feelings and issues as Paige. It really helped to understand what she was experiencing.
I look forward to continuing this story with the next book to the series!!! The storyline was beautifully crafted and told. The characters felt real and vulnerable. They grew and developed throughout the story. I really loved the moments of raw honesty and vulnerability that Paige and especially Nelson showed. It is a story of young love- yet, the feelings and emotions shown are v deep. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves good clean honest romance writing. Nelson is the Student Council President, an amazing musician, a super hard worker, and is adored by his fellow students.
Unfortunately, primarily due to his standing at home, he has minimal self-confidence but has learned how to put on a great act. Paige, along with numerous others secretly adores Nelson and has her own shortage of self-confidence. When they eventually spend more time together the two are a Godsend to each other and help each other build their self-confidence enormously.
He was British though. Her father finds out and sends her to a convent where she gives birth to a daughter that she names Emma. A few years pass and she somehow ends up in England and becomes the governess? The hero had thought that she abandoned their child this whole time so he hates the heroine for her actions but they end up making up by the end of the book I think she might be blind??? I clearly remember that she was a French aristocrat though but she becomes broke after the French revolution.
I really really hope someone recognizes this book I am almost convinced that I've just imagined the whole thing. Glad to find you all and looking forward to recommendations and help.

Marriage of Convenience between I think a Campbell woman and a rebellious highland clan.
The eldest daughter was to marry the man, but she fainted at the alter, so the younger daughter married him. The man she married was the only remaining son on the clan laird, who was a scarred, womanizing, jerkface. The woman stood out for being practical and smart; before marrying she demanded concessions like having soldiers periodically check on her to make she is ok.
This has ramifications later because the English officer who checks on her becomes a friend, and she uses him to save her husband. The woman ended up in the highlands at the castle, made friends with the old cook and her young maid, but lived separate from her husband who was sleeping with his father's redheaded mistress, Fiona? Eventually, they go to a highland wedding, the husband gets sucked into Bonnie Prince Charles' rebellion, and the wife returns to her father's estate.

He hates that she has beautiful red hair and makes her wear hats anytime she's outdoors. She's very feisty and sometimes immature because of her age. I think someone tries to kidnap her. But he thinks that she ran away and when he finds her it's pouring down rain they make love and he doesn't realize, because of the rain and all her skirts, that she's bleeding to death because she's been cut on her leg.
She gets pregnant, they get married, and she has a baby boy. I can't remember why but she ends up leaving him and he doesn't know where she's at. When he finds her she's a governess, they get back together. She leaves him again this time for his best friend and she's pregnant.
He finds out where she's at and kidnaps her. She ends up giving birth to their little girl on the ship. And after that I really can't remember anything else. Thank you ;. I'm so glad I have found this site. I have found many books to add to my "to read" list. I have read a book some years back. This is what I remember about it. The hero is a cowboy -in texas, perhaps? The son had interfered with mail even then -I think it was the late s, but don't hold me to it- it was a crime and the boy roughly aged 8 has admitted to it.
If I remember correctly, he said the that he liked the picture the heroine of the story sent; his father had no idea of it. The heroine is a woman with a small boy. He is approximately the same age as the hero's son. The boys don't get along at first, but as the story unfolds they practicaly become inseparable.
The hero's son admits near the end of the story that he was jealous of the other boy because the heroine's son had a mother who wanted to protect him. See, the story begins in front of store -feed store, maybe- and if I remembert it right, the woman was concerned about her son getting her. The heroine is from Ireland and is on the run. The man, and later his family, accused her of kindapping to separate her from her son.
And she saw the ad for a teacher as a chance for escape as far west as possible. The offer I think included the room and board. Anyway, the matter came before a judge and that is how our heroine came to live on the ranch and became a teacher to his son. Thanks for you help! I am desperately trying to find a book I believe I read in the mid to late 90s not totally sure. It would most likely be Harlequin or Silhouette. It is about a man who is after the person who killed his wife and twin daughters in a car bombing.
Then a few months later she discovered she is pregnant. She has three identical triplet boys and she tries to find the man she spend the night with but with no luck. Then she runs into to him like three or four years later. I think at this point the triplet boys are around three years old and he then protects her and his sons because the man she had been dating for the last six months is the one who initially killed his wife and twin daughters.
I think the triplets names were Ryan, Sean and unsure of the other one. If anyone one remembers this I would greatly appreciate it. I loved this book and would love to read it again.

Very hippy. I remember the part where she, I think, bets him that her swimsuits are better and she can make the models look better in the shoot than he can. He makes her wear one of her own suits and realizes that she is the one he was looking for and when he asks why she never said anything she tells him that she already knows who he is.

Hi everyone, I would appreciate the help if anyone knows of a book that I've been searching for a few years now. What I remember is that she has been betrothed already. She's really good with her bow and arrow. When the hero meets her to marry her, she's being attacked at her house in the woods as he meets her.
She believes she's in love with a friend she's known since childhood. But she starts to be really attracted to her hero. She freaks out of how attracted she's becoming of him so she convinces her twin sister to say that she's feeling ill in her bedroom and she escapes in either a rug or trunk I vaguely remember and then goes on horse back to her childhood friends house.
Without realizing that's she's being followed and she's the one who's been the target this whole time. Sorry I wrote a super long post. Thanks Kate Hi, I've been looking for a particular historical romance for weeks now. I read it at least 6 or 7 years ago, maybe more. It is similar to 'Flowers from the Storm' by Laura Kinsale in that the Hero is struck down by something that makes everyone believe he has become an imbecile.
I think he might be a Duke or an Earl? It is set in England maybe regency or just before. There is something about all the other family members dying or being killed by the French? I'd be most grateful if anyone knows what this book is. I'm new to librarything and I'm really hoping someone will recognize a book from a very brief description because I can't remember more than the basics of the plot really. Years ago I read a romantic mystery about a cold, cruel twin who convinces her twin sister to take her place.
The cold, cruel twin is in a very unhappy marriage and has a daughter who she doesn't seem to care about at all. The nice twin goes along with her plan for some reason and falls for the husband and the little girl. The husband at first is baffled by her new, kind behavior because he was used to her gold digging, heartless twin and unaware she had a twin. Eventually he starts to fall for the new twin still thinking its his wife. Sorry, that's all I can remember.

This is in reply to post 66 cmboyd This sounds familiar to a Sandra Brown novel I read some time ago. However, in the book the heroine was not a twin but a look-alike and she took the evil look-alike's place after a plane crash.
I don't know if this could be it The first I do believe is a Harlequin or Silhouette. The heroine arrives from the country to net a husband. She has her old nanny and a younger sister who is very beautiful, but has intellectual disabilities. At some point, someone tries to kidnap her sister. The heroine eventually gets married to a reformed rake who is ashamed of his past. The second book is actually the first part of a trilogy. It was also an historical set in England.
All I remember is that there were three sisters who somehow became separated and they belonged to a theatrical family. The third is more recent and is the first of a trilogy of three sisters. Also an historical, the sisters are fashionistas and set up their shop in London. This story is about the oldest sister who has a daughter. There is a fire started by a rival that burns down their shop and they move into the love interests home. If so, you might be interested in knowing that the third book in the series is due out this month.
