I'm looking for historical or contemporary where the hero sends the heroine away due to anger or misunderstanding. They get back together, of course, but there is drama along the way. :)

there is one, but I can't remember the title. Maybe someone else does..
The heroine's father is rich, but as he is not by birth part of the high society (and not accepted by them) he intends to marry his daughter to someone who is.

The problem is, she is left on the altar..her bridegroom to be doesn't show up. While "grieving" because of him, the brother of her former fiance shows up and is angry blaming her that she and her father made a plot.

In fact, the father wants him (brother of fiance) to marry her.. he does, but sends her away next day after consuming the marriage.

She was a shy and unsecure girl, but there where she was sent helped her become a more confident person.
She happens to be kidnapped to france..he goes to rescue her and so on.
The kidnapper doesn't want to harm her... in fact, he likes her very much. Hero was jealos because he thought there was something between them going on:P

a nice read, hero was a little mean, but not a jerk. I give the book 4/5 :) maybe someone can tell you the title..;)

addition: hero was sorry for what he did. and his brother (who was heroine's fiance) had a gambling problem. because he got money from heroine's father, he agreed to marry the heroine. Hero's father died relative young and tis is the reason his little brother was spoiled.

sorry for my english

Pretty sure that's Rosemary Rogers' Bride for a Night (Hqn).

I really liked that one, though technically, he didn't send her away, he dumped her at the family estate and took off.

Barely a Lady (The Drake's Rakes series) , which I did not like. The heroine a doormat and the H an idiot.

Dani D was this a great read?

Not Dani --

It's decent enough but short at 67 pages (plus it's also $2.99 which is something to consider given the length). It reads like a harlequin romance.

I wish the author had made it longer and with a bit more groveling. Price was way too much for what it was.

Kate Barley says:
I actually liked it's Harlequin like writing but your're right -- it's too short for the price. The author has another book that's $3.99 for over 250 pages. Go figure.

Thanks tealadytoo!! I didn't realize that some of Rodgers' stuff was available on Kindle now. I've never read any of her books, but I've seen her mentioned a lot on here. I have been wanting to try this author. I think I will start with this book.

tealadytoo says:
She's been around a long time and her style varies a lot. Her older books are classic melodramatic bodice rippers. Not my cup of tea but prime examples of that style.

Bride for a Night is more recent and the H is not such a jerk, though he has his moments. I quite liked it.

Banished by Barbara McMahon is pretty good.
Husband is truly awful and wife suffers horribly, but it all works out.
(I got this as a kindle book, but it is no longer offered that way!)

The Golden Swan by Phyllis Warrady is on the edge
of this category. The H caused a scandal (slept with a married woman leading to divorce--
quite serious in the 19th century) and his father forced him to marry the h. She is really
very good and he leaves her and "forgets" her and when he comes back, he can't find her.
He doesn't grovel enough, but it is a pretty good story.

Lily definitely! He accuses her of shooting his brother. Very angsty.

A Scandalous Wife (Scandalous Series, BOOK 1) by Ava Stone

As the head of his family, Robert Beckford, the Earl of Masten, was accustomed to dealing with various problems his siblings had caused of one sort or another. However he wasn't prepared when his cad of brother ruined and then abandoned a young lady. To right the wrong, Robert married the girl himself; but his chivalry only went so far. He didn't want a wife, and most certainly not a scandalous one. So after repeating his vows, he sent her packing, off to a secluded estate and expected her to stay put.

After years of mistreatment at the hands of her family, Lydia was prepared to be an accommodating wife; but her rigid and unforgiving husband asked too much of her. After languishing for years in her opulent prison, Lydia leaves her country estate for the glamour and excitement of London-and unfortunately her husband's path.

Dream Fever - He sends her away more than once in fact, much drama, but the one towards the end is the best.

Hi Rutile Blue, Could you please lend me Banished? Sounds like a great book.

Many thanks in advance.

In Lady Hathaway's House Party the hero has left the heroine and is staying separately when they meet accidentally at a party.
In The Book of Scandal (Scandalous 1) the hero and heroine are estranged.
There are a couple of more old regencies that have this theme. Will look through my books and get back with more names.
