Sorry so vague, but it's been a long time since I read it.
Some other random things: I think she had her first "tub" bath and compared it to bathing in the Thames. Winnie: wish I could help ya, but I don't know the book you're looking for. I read it when I was a teen so it was from sometime before about 1996. The heroine has a brother (I think maybe he's the one who ends up becoming friar tuck).I got three books that I need help finding (one is driving me "bonkers" 'cause I didn't like it the first time around, but message #21 sounds like it and I thought I knew the name, and the more I try to remember ahh...)1ST: The title of the book is JEWEL. It's a "My Fair Lady" sort of plot, with the heroine: Julia/Jewel rising from the bowels of the poor to the high living of the aristocracy and her hero (Sebastian) being her "I've got time on my hands to turn a tramp into a lady" guide.He's a utter bastard, but considering that his little daughter screams evertime he comes near her that would make anyone mad at the world.I've read many HP's, but that one doesn't sound familiar sorry, Morphidae.I'm also looking for a Harlequin Presents circa '89-93.The secretary overhears dulcie in a high-end boutique talking smack, and she leaves Fosythe.Meanwhile, stevie is working on the secty's car but he wasn't finished with the brakes, and she takes it, and gets into a car accident. : DSugeidy HI Suge,sorry I checked my books between '89-95. I've googled and did everything I could think of CC and came up blank. Sugeidy Finding old books is hard work, especially with a monthly series like Harlequin. I don't know the details of the site (which does involve a monetary transaction), but at least you can get the titles and release dates/years that they came out. Something about the hero saving the heroine and her newborn baby who are stranded in the snow? In the beginning the heroine is a highwayman dressed as a boy and is in charge of a group of orphaned boys. Wendy So I watched that show "Robin Hood" on BBC last night and it reminded me of a book I read back in college.I also remember her walking on the servant/valet's back that had given him severe pain for years and fixing it. I think the age difference was about 12-15 years between h/h. It sounds like a good read, though, so I'll be watching this thread to see what you find out. The hero (who is a knight of some sort) and the heroine travel across country with her brother and some other people as a group.I have posted about this book on several sites and am pretty sure this is NOT a Jane Feather book. They're going to save some girl I think maybe, who turns out to be blind (?I "borrowed" a book trilogy from my Grandpa (who loved to read romance novels!He can't see well enough now) about 15 years ago that took place in the American colonies and some islands in the Gulf of Mexico that were used by pirates. Katybear, Check out this page, which lists books that touch on the Robin Hood legend and characters. I have posted this message in several threads, so bear with me if I seem tedious, but I'm desperate, Does anyone recognize this story: I need help finding this book that I read in 1998/9.
