I'm looking for a Mills and boon book i read years ago. I think it was published in the 80's.
The cover was blue, couple in a pool: guy with brown hair wearing black truncks, woman wearing a blue swimming costum? with long dark hair.
The lead girl got out of an abusive marriage, I think the ex died. I think she was away visiting family or friends and meets guy, I think his name was Alec? They have sex near the end of the book but she then leaves upset about something. The hero later comes after and gets her to tell him about her marriage, and then they live happily ever after.
Help please.
PS - also looking for anyother books where girl gets out of bad realtionship and learns to love again.

Don't recognise the mills and boon book but another you may enjoy is new - Peace of Time by Rosalind Rendle. Has had good reviews and matches your PS comment. I enjoyed it.

Could it be by Yvonne Whittal? I recall the cover, but not the title. Check out fantasticfiction.com, which has covers and blurb.

I can recommend Heartbreaker by Charlotte Lamb for your PS.

Hope this helps.

Check out the Amazon forum called "Mills and boon book (1980's?) help please" which has a very good track record of finding books like yours. It has a lot of followers and seems to get quick results as well (or has when I've been asking for help!)
I'm sure ROROBLU'S MUM uses it.

The story is a think they are step-brother and step-sister, his dad married her mum, think either the dad or mum died or maybe they both died.

Help please.

I'm looking for a mills and boons book, probably late 90's early 00's. The hero was part of a SWAT or hostage negotiator team and the female lead was a journalist / reporter who got in his way at the very start of the book. They were then kidnapped after a party, thrown in the back of a trunk and taken to an island where they escaped from the bad guys, one of which turned out to be her father who may or may not have been responsible for his fathers death. She was scared of small dark places and they escaped using her red dress as a flag. I can't remember names and I know the plot sounds bizarre but this book has been stuck in my head for awhile now and it is really annoying me that I can't find it or remember the title. Can anyone help me please?

I need help finding a book I've read in the 80's. The plot is:
First Chapter : She is on a plane, escaping from México with her baby boy. She fears that the family of her latest husband catch her baby.
Her in-laws don't know she run out of the hacienda with the child. She arrives at USA, lives in a flat n New York or Chicago, hides the baby, try to survive and is always looking for private investigators or police wanting her son... This is what I remember... She has help from a "special heroe"... This book was a long book, more than 200 pages, I think it could be Mills and Boon, Harlequin, Sillhouette or Worldwide Library, because of the setting USA. In my head there's a idea that the cover was dark blue, an image of a big city at night, with a woman and a man. Love to know the title and the author. I'm searching this book for many years love to discover the title and author. Thanks, Carla

Hi everyone. I am looking for an old Mills and Boon story (80s/90s) that had a pink cover. The h was a bit of a plain jane who is infatuated with a famous actor and rides her bike over to his residence (they've rented a place for filming?) to catch a glimpse of him. She ends up falling from her bike and the grumpy man who comes out to help her (he's with the film crew but can't recall if he was the director?) ends up as the guy she eventually falls in love with. He also tries to help her with a make-over to catch the actor's interest.

Couple of other scenes I recall is when the actor can't keep his hands off her when he sees the h in her new swimsuit much to the chagrin of the H.

Also when the h, H and an actress from said film (who happens to be genuinely in love with the actor) sits down at dinner and when carving the chicken, blood spurts out! The H subsequently fires the cook and h saves the day by zipping up something nice to eat.

Hi, I am looking for 2 Mills and Boon books. Im not sure on the year they came out.

Book 1 - Has a blue cover. It has a man and woman on the front. He is topless and she is pregnant and wearing a green nightie and they are sat on a bed. She is an author and owns a bnb with her mum i think it is, they own a parrot. They have split up and then he turns up looking for her and she finds out that he also writes books. She writes adult ones and he gets her to act out what she writes?

Book 2 - Has a blue cover. I think it has a woman on the front in a blue suit but not sure. She is a widow. Her husband was a doctor/surgeon i think and cheated alot. When he died he left her with her debt and the guys brother feels he should look after her and the baby. It then comes out that he is the father or the baby not the husband?

Any help would be appreciated, thank you
