I'm trying to remember a book.....it's probably a 1980's bodice ripper - can anyone help?

This is very obscure

It's set in south/southern America might be part of a series....not really sure

Heroine - spoilt maybe?
Hero - rough & ready apparently - deceiving heroine

Travelling somewhere, stopping at hero's home where his family are - twin sisters one looks like him but lives away the other and all the other siblings do not look like hero

Hero/heroine may/maynot be married

This is silly no-one will ever get what book it is - but I am trying so hard to put it out my mind but it is tormenting me

Set in the past 1700/1800

Twins had odd names

It sounds like a Danielle Steel, I've only read a couple and none of them seem any different from those two. Sure it wasn't a Mills & Boon!?

someone once posted a link to a website where you can search for books whose names you cant remember...

KatyMac Sun 12-Oct-08 21:16:27

Not not Danielle Steel (read tonnes of them)

Def not M&B (ditto - plus it was a thick book)

It's someone like Shirlee Busbee or Kathleen Woodiwiss or someone

here it is
{feels chuffed with self}

was it Meet Me Under The Ombu Tree by Santa Montefiore?
Bit later than 80's though

KatyMac Sun 12-Oct-08 21:31:36

That doesn't ring a bell

It was def 80's

Isabel Allende - The House Of the Spirits? 1982

It sounds like Kathleen Woodiwiss - she wrote those kind of books. The heroine alway said things like, "twas hard to believe my own father would not believe me thus..."

Jude Deveraux? Or Judith McNaught? They always write stories about heroes with huge families?

Maybe - I'll have a read (of them all) until I find it

I have a feeling it might be Shanna if it is Woodiwiss

did you try the website on the thread i linked to?

KatyMac Mon 13-Oct-08 20:56:48

blush no

I took the book I thought it was into the bath with me & it is the right one.....and not nearly as good as I remembered sad

Never mind

Thanks everyone
