I have been searching for examples of romance novels published in the past twenty years with the heroine and another woman competing for the hero's love. This was a staple of romance novels published in earlier decades, but the only romance triangles that I can identify in current fiction involve two men and a woman - as in Lisa Kleypas' Sugar Daddy or Jennifer Haymore's A Hint of Wicked.

Can anyone suggest examples of love triangles involving the hero, the heroine and another woman? I'm interested in both contemporary and historical romances. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Emily Giffin: Something Borrowed (on the Chick-lit end of Romance)
Laurey Bright: A Perfect Marriage

Both involve infidelity - in the first it's the heroine who's the "other" woman.

I second Something Borrowed. It's funny because I was going to suggest Giffen's new one, Heart of the Matter. I haven't actually read it yet, but the summary sounds like what you want. Besides, I know I'll love it (her books are always great) so I feel ok about reccomending something I haven't read.

Reviewer Aus says:
Rescue Me: A Novel - Christy Reece
The hero is engaged when he finds the heroine. The heroine is his childhood friend who went missing years ago.

Shades of Twilight - Linda Howard
The hero, the heroine and the other woman grew up in the same house. The hero married the other woman - who was very nasty to the heroine.

Her Best Friend (Harlequin Super Romance) - Sarah Mayberry
The hero is getting divorced and he's thinking about getting together with the heroine. His ex shows up in town wanting another chance.

I also have to recommend Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin. I absolutely love that book. And Heart of the Matter fits , although I haven't read it yet. If you like historical I just finished reading Silver Lining by Maggie Osborne, it was quite good and it fits what you are looking for.

"Winter's Edge" by Anne Stuart. The hero marries the heroine, but another woman, under the guise of friendship, does everything in her power to ensure that the marriage will fail.

What Mattered Most is amazing! I read it in a few hours and re-read it often!
Also just finished Ethan (Long, Tall Texans) which was good.
Second 'Just the Way you are' by Barbara Feethy

These I haven't read yet but have been suggested a few times on other threads discussing the same theme:
Texas! Chase: A Novel by Sandra Brown(Contemporary)
The Spider Prince (Desert Princes of Jikkar) by Rebecca Goings
Anything for You (Harlequin Blaze) by Sarah Mayberry (Contemp)
More Than One Night (Harlequin Super Romance) By Sarah Mayberry (Contemp)
Magnolia by Diana Palmer
Almost Heaven by Judith Mcnaught (Think it's historical)
Paradise also Judith Mcnaught (Historical?)

Texas Chase, The Spider Prince, and What Mattered Most were really good, IMO. Very angsty!

Posted on May 19, 2012 6:16:44 PM PDT
I love Texas! Chase but I'm not sure it fits.. He's still in love with his late wife but there aren't any OW or potential OW in the book. I'd still recommend it though..

Posted on May 19, 2012 6:26:52 PM PDT
Maybe a triangle with regard to his memories and feelings for his dead wife? She is just not physically present. The Spider Prince is the same, his wife died and he is still in love with her. Also the Marriage Bed by Stephanie Mittman, same premise with dead wife. Also in The Spider Prince and The Marriage Bed, the Heros were involved with or supposed to marry the h and they dumped them and chose the OW (wife) over h. After the wives die, they finally get together with h and fall in love.

I'm with you Nicky, I loved Texas Chase and the others I mentioned. They are all on my favorite's list.

Book Lover #1.. I'm glad you pointed out The Marriage Bed (I know I've said before it's one of my favs :)) But I totally forgot about them sorta being together and then him meeting and marrying the first wife..

ETA-- Would you mind giving spoilers for The Spider Prince? It sounds like just what I've been looking for lately.
