Ok this is not supposed to be creepy or like incest or anything, but I read a dianne palmer book where the step siter and the son fell in love and I have to say, I really enjoyed this theme. I hope that you have some reccomendations for me! Oh btw, I like historical and contemporary... but I'm willing to try pnr if it seems good! Thanks

Try JUST ONE OF THE GUYS by Kristen Higgens. Despite the chick-lit packaging, this is a terrific, witty, deeply emotional read about a guy who is basically adopted into a large, boisterous family. Naturally, little sister carries a torch for him as they grow up. I normally don't like 1st person POV, but this book is worth it.

I recently read an older romance novel with this theme. Summer's End by Kathleen
Gilles Siedel (sp?).
Its about an older couple who have 5 grown children between them, who marry, then invite all the adult children to a summer lake house to get to know each other.
The romance is about the older son of the women, and the youngest daughter of the man, who fall in love, and the other siblings are not happy about it at all!!
It does have a HEA. I enjoyed the book.

Try Picture Perfect by Evangeline Anderson - step brother & step sister
Not sure, but you might also be interested in The Punishment of Nicholette by Evangeline Anderson - Uncle/Guardian & ward (no blood relation) - think this can be found at Loose ID

Thank you guys for the books, I'm still looking for more! N. Pacheco, it was Heartless by Diana Palmer and what I perceived from another thread is that a lot of her books fit this. Unfortunantely i'd still like to find a better writer that appeals to me, but with the same theme!

Seduce Me at Sunrise (The Hathaways, Book 2) fits this. H was taken in/adopted by the h's family.

Don't know if this will qualifiy or not. LindaHoward has one with cousins - Roanna Davenport and Web Tallant. It is AFTER THE TWILIGHT. They are raised together (by her grandmother) after her parents are killed. He first marries her other cousin. She is murdered and he is suspected by part of the family and the town. I won't go any further because of spoilers. It is an older one of her books.

Truly Madly Yours by Rachel Gibson has this theme with the H being the bastard son of the h's step-father.

Linda S. Peter - I think the book you're thinking of is Shades of Twilight by Linda Howard?

There are 4 books in this series by Dorothy Garlock, but the one that fits this description is the 3rd in the series called River of Tomorrow. She writes very sweet romances. They are pretty chaste, not spicy or anything, but when I started reading romance again I looked up her books because I remembered this one specifically. I loved the whole step-brother step sister-theme. They were raised together but they are both adopted.

This is one of my favorite story lines as well :

- Taboo: Olivia Rupprecht
- Together always : Dallas Schulze

Thanks. I have already ready Led Astray. And I just ordered Shades of Twilight. And Truly madly yours sounds really good. I'm not really a big fan of Garlock, but ill try it. Taboo and Together Always also sound really good! If any one knows of any more I'm looking forward to read them!

River of Tomorrow by Dorothy Garlock. The H and h are both foster children and grew up as brother and sister. This book is part of a series and it's necessary to read the other books because many references are made to them; The villain in this book is the villain in the first book in the series.

I just reread "The Guardian" by Joan Wolf, and still love it. Written in 1st person POV. They are step-siblings who grew up together.

Try FORBIDDEN FIRE by Charlotte Lamb. Old HP but very, very good. Older man falls in love with his younger step-sister.

What about the Harper Connelly series by Charlaine Harris? Those are more mystery, but the romance is definitely there. Step-siblings who fall in love, and not in a creepy way, either. Harris does an excellent job of showing you how the relationship develops - it's not wham! true love! - it's more gradual and gives you a sense of the issues both siblings have.

Hmm, this book has been in TBR pile for ages. I think I ought to give it a try now :)
