I'm looking for an older book from the 90's and you guys are always such great help! I'm thinking it was maybe one of those Harlequin Superromance. It was set in Texas. The h and H split up years earlier and she left town. For some reason, she left behind the child she had with the H, as well. I think it was a girl, maybe? Curiosity about her child drives her back in town years later. they have all sorts of angst and confusion and then she packs up to leave again and she walks back into the bedroom because she forgets something and sees him there on the bed holding her nightgown to his face and crying. She is shocked because she thought he hated her. This is the only vivid scene that I remember. Any help is greatly appreciated!

it might be A Mother's Homecoming (Harlequin American Romance) by tanya michaels.

@bep, that's not it, but thanks so much for replying! The one i'm thinking of was way older and I don't think the mother had a drinking problem. also, I'm positive it was in Texas. Does anyone else out there think they might know?? Thanks in advance

There is one were she fakes her death and maybe another one that the h was a ballet dancer and left to pursue career. I think the mother-in-law paid her to leave or told everyone she was dead? I saw it on the HP threads I believe. Try your hand on that thread.

@DArnold, thanks for the reply, those don't sound quite right. what is the HP thread? is it listed under the Romance Forum as well?

That book is Lost Love but it doesn't fit this OP.

The only Harlequin I can think of that has the hero crying over a nightgown after the heroine leaves is Witch's Harvest by Sara Craven, but it does not have any of the other aspects you asked for.

@Gabriela, I own Witch's Harvest, so I know it's not that one, although I had forgotten about that nightgown scene in WH! I will have to re-read that one soon! I don't think this one was a Harlequin Presents, seens like it was one of the bigger ones, like the Superromance or one of those. I can't even remember the circumstances over why the h left in the first place, but I do remember that she comes back into town and someone tells the H that they see her, maybe at a bar? He thens goes and finds her at the local motel and tells her not to disrupt their lives, but then agrees to let her see the child. HHMM its driving me crazy!Thanks so much though!

@DArnold, I've only just realized that HP thread is for Harlequin Presents (duh!), but I'm still having trouble searching for different threads within forums. Do you have to know the forum to search that way? Where is the exact place that you can see all of the forums? The ones that I can see are kind of hit and miss.

The HP thread is a thread on the Romance Forum.
HP Discussion. Good, Bad and inbetween. It's a pretty active thread and usually if you have a harlequin question someone there can help.

It wasn't my request, but this was the book that I thought of when I read the OP. I have been wanting to re-read it for quite some time (it was one of the first romance novels I ever read, back in jr. high). So glad you provided the title, as I had thought it was Nora Roberts or Diana Palmer (who I read quite a bit of back then). Looking forward to finding a copy!
