Oh god, you are actually asking for my entire Kindle collection. I can't wait to get some new recommendations and I'll go search my library.

Law Man (Dream Man) by Kristen Ashley. h has a 1-10 rating system of people and sees the H as at least an 8 (maybe higher) while thinking of herself (to begin with) as a 2.

This is a book involving BDSM which I'm reading now, not for everyone. Rite of First Claim (Diablo Blanco Club) by Qwillia Rain. h was abused physically and emotionally by drunk father.

Do you like paranormal romances? Unholy Ghosts (Downside Ghosts) is the first book in the Downside Ghosts series. The heroine is Chess and she was horribly abused in her childhood and is convinced that she is a bad person. The central romance takes a while to develop - so don't start unless you want to read more than one book!

i think this is more urban fantasy (same characters over the series arc, than HEA in one book correct)

Now that you mention it, I do believe I may have purchased the first book in the urban fantasy section of Borders (back in the day:)) The HEA is ever evolving with this character. Every book sees a little more happiness and a little more emotional growth.

I finished The Farmer's Wife (Contemporary Romance) (The Luchetti Brothers) the other day. I believe it fits. Six years ago the h left the H and went through a tough time and doesn't believe she deserves his love or a second chance.

***** SPOILERS *****

SPOILERS- DON'T READ IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW!

I think it is a very different story, at least from what I'm used to reading. The H/h were high school sweethearts, he is a farmer to the core and she just wants out. She winds up pregnant but they don't tell anybody. Then when she miscarries they disappear. The H still wants to marry her and begs her to marry him anyway, she runs away in the middle of the night. Fast forward six (IIRC) years later and the h is coming home for the first time. She is a successful paralegal. (If you can't tell I'm very wordy with spoilers lol- sorry) There is a side story about her parents- longtime married so they don't communicate so well, plus her dad just had a heart attack and her mom is menopausal. (I really enjoyed their story) She isn't very close to her mom and basically wanted to be the exact opposite of her mom (her mom is a farmer's wife, stay at home mom, six kids etc. so she is an independent, single, careerwoman. This is part of why she left). Everything is not hunky dory with this family, there is resentment and anger at the heroine. For some reason she goes to the H's farm and surprises him. He ends up falling off of the roof and breaking both wrists. Somehow she is volunteered to be his helper. This H wasn't very alpha (therefore not really my cuppa) but they keep hinting at something happening in the past. Basically what had happened was she gets pregnant and really doesn't want the baby, or to be stuck in their small town. I'm pretty sure the book says she wished the baby away every day until she miscarried and then she felt so guilty. Then when the H still wanted to marry her she felt trapped so she ran. Then to deal with the guilt of the miscarriage and guilt of leaving the H she drank, and when she drank she slept with strange men. It never said a number but it sounded like a lot. The This is one of the only books I've read that the heroine moved on (again not my cuppa but I know alot of y'all look for books where that happens)

Thanks for the spoilers Nicky (even though I wasn't the one to ask) I just moved it up my tbr pile. It's lendable if anyone wants to borrow it.

Another Kristen Ashley with this theme is Rock Chick Redemption and, to a lesser extent, Rock Chick Rescue
