Keep the tissues handy for these:
A Kiss to Remember

Saving Grace

Binding Arbitration, A Chick Lit/Contemporary Romance Novel
Pushing the Limits (Harlequin Teen)
Collision Course

just a few that come to mind instantly. Pushing the Limits is a little more expensive than I would normally spend but it is money worth spending to me. Very touching book.

I really liked Second Chances by Lauren Dane. It stays on my desktop whenever I need a break from tstl, doormaty heroine. I liked it because...


the h dumps the H when he has sex with another woman. They were just at the very beginning of their relationship, but the h was just coming off a divorce where she had found her husband (now ex-husband) smexing another woman. After dumping the cheating H, she ends up meeting the brother of her friend and actually falls in love with him and marries him. Like, REALLY falls in love with the OM. She's not thinking of the the H when she's with the OM, even though he's still around. It really annoys me when the h is with a great OM and she's thinking of the cheating btard H. Anyway, Zach, the OM, is amazing. I actually wouldn't have minded if the author hadn't done what she'd done (no, the OM didn't end up as crazy psycho or jerk like other books), and the h and OM had stayed together.

Yes I have borrowed some books in the past. I live in Europe - I can borrow but I cannot LEND which is a pity because I have a load of books on kindle. But I really should stay off these forums!

i wish Judith McNaught would go on Kindle because I am not going back to buying paperback and hardbacks. She only has one book on kindle and a lot of her stuff looks really good.
