Hi!
I'm searching for a book and hoping someone may recognize this plot:
  • h and H were childhood sweethearts, but H had to go away for university (I think it was UChicago)
  • H didn't have a lot of money but would come back when he could by bus to see the h
  • H and h get into a fight. He comes back to try to make up with h and sees h with another guy (it may have been a misunderstanding, I can't remember) so H goes back to Chicago and hooks up with his study buddy
  • H marries study buddy when she gets pregnant (I think they lose the child)
  • Present day H is eventually divorced and has a successful career in Chicago (I think as an architect or engineer)
  • H comes back to town (which he rarely does) to see his last remaining relative there (I think it was his uncle)
  • h and H start to fall in love again

Hi everyone!

I'm looking for an old original fiction, not a published book but a story published on either WordPress, Blogspot or Wattpad. The name of it was The Matchmaker's Promise if I remember correctly. I believe it was placed in Victorian times and centers around a young woman from a small village who goes to her village matchmaker to be married. The matchmaker finds a husband for her who she does not meet until her wedding day. It turns out that her husband is the village outcast that everyone believes to be some kind of wicked. Since the young woman is already married to him when she and everyone else realize who he is she is stuck being married to him. The matchmaker gives her advice of "You will be happy if..." But the woman is not able to hear the rest of the message. She goes to live with her now husband who is kind of cruel and distant and odd. There's a part in the story where the woman finds some roses hidden in a part of the house and cuts them to place at the dinner table. When her husband sees the roses he gets infuriated and ends up throwing a glass at her I think. Later she finds out that her husband is the son of the matchmaker who is a witch and he is a wizard of some kind and uses a tea made from special roses to lessen some of his magical symptoms. They start to fall in love when the villagers abduct her and attack the home of her husband to kill him but he escapes. She discovers she's pregnant while he is away and is planning to escape if he does not come for her. I think he goes to rescue her eventually and they move away to raise their child in peace. Hopefully someone recognizes this old story and has a copy of it since I'm dying to read it again. Any help is appreciated!

Sounds familiar but I can't place it  :(

I'm hoping someone will recognize the plot of this medieval romance:

The heroine fell in love with the illegitimate son of the LORD of the castle (the lord of the castle is the HERO).  She falls pregnant and has a daughter, but her lover abandons her and she has to work at the castle in some kind of menial capacity.  The lord of the castle returns to his castle and he and the heroine fall in love and begin an affair.  The hero has a legitimate adult son who is opposed to his relationship to the heroine. Despite all opposition, the hero becomes so obsessed with the heroine that he marries her despite the difference in their social station, their age difference and the fact that she was previously involved with his illegitimate son.  The illegitimate son is murdered and the heroine is framed and accused of the murder.  The hero takes the blame and he is tried for the murder and sentenced to death.

I think it’s Lord of the Keep by Ann Lawrence. It was really good.

There's another book I'm looking for, and this time it's contemporary romance

The HERO is a policeman (but possibly a fireman I can't remember) who was married to a woman that he deeply loved and considered to be the love of his life.  They were happily married for many years until the wife had an accident or some kind of mental illness that changed her entire personality and she became very hateful towards there hero.  He was so devoted to her that despite the horrible way she treated him, he faithfully stayed in the marriage clinging to the hope that she would go back to being the woman she used to be.  Time passed and the marriage became intolerable, and the story opens years later when the hero meets the heroine who works at a restaurant and they slowly become involved with each other.  The wife finds out about them and she is not jealous or cares that he is seeing someone else but she's evil and tries to destroy their relationship.  The book is super angsty, and there's loads of drama.  It was also a really painful read, so I never finished it and there's lots of details missing from my description.  There's also a sequel to this novel and the wife is the heroine in that book.  I'm really hoping someone recognizes the plot as I always regretted not finishing this novel.

Hoping someone can help me remember the title of this book...

  • FMC is the Executive at a company she inherited from her fatherr
  • MMC is her assistant (and secretly in love with her)r
  • FMC wants to buy a property (I think it was a hotel) from a reclusive millionaire, but rumor has it that recluse is old fashioned and won't
  • consider an offer from a female execr
  • FMC and MMC go to meet with him, but pretend MMC is the bossr
  • Later on, we learnt hat the MMC is actually overqualified to be FMC's assistant but when he first saw her he fell in. love and realized that she was married to her work. he took the job to get close to her and hopefully get her to open up over time and see him as a future partner


note: it think FMC was engaged/married to a gold digger before taking over the company which is also why she's so focused on work

This thread doesn’t get really any traction BUT I’m hoping and trying anyway.

#1.

College romance novel - read it on Amazon between 2014-2019.Set at the University of Iowa. heroine is a single mother of a son….maybe him name is Finn. she’s in student housing/apartment. Her ex committed suicide before her son was born. She meets the hero….the quarterback and he’s eventually drafted to the NFL and oriole before are trying to get him to not be attached to a single mother.

TL;DR -
College romance, set at University  of Iowa. single mother with son named Finn, hero the quarterback/football player for the school soon to be drafted to the NFL.

#2.

Romance novel, group of millionaire/billionaire friends, maybe 3 of them have an arrangement where they audition women to date and then rotate through them for 9 months to a year. It works because they’re all attracted to the women but not attached. One immediately falls for one of the women who he’s paired with for the year and he wants to keep and only date her and not end their contract and have her “switch” to a friend of his.

TL;DR

3 rich friends have arrangement where they pick women to contract date for a year then “swap” girlfriends until 1 falls for his contract girl and wants to break the swapping arrangement.

Could #1 be The Fadeaway (Smart Jocks #2) by Rebecca Jenshak??  Her son's name is not Finn it is Christain

I checked that one and that’s not it. It was definitely a football hero romance novel but it was mature like. No “the hottest jock in town likes me” summary type. But more of a single mother keeping her head together meets nice guy who falls for her son AND her and he happens to be a huge potential NFL player.
