Philippa Gregory has Wideacre - which is actually about a rather twisted brother and sister. ew.

Heidi Betts wrote a Silhouette Desire called "Fortune's Forbidden Woman", and they were step-siblings. A few year's back there was another SD (or maybe a Harlequin Blaze) where I think the H's name is Wolfe. The h ends up needing his help (grudgingly) with $$ for her business. I think it's a restaurant.

I was wondering how often this trope was used...I have a WIP which features a novel within the novel about the development (and bad end) of the relationship of a stepbrother and sister (in their teens) and I wrote the protagonist's editor as quite aghast at her choosing to write about the subject. Maybe it's not so shocking then?

I think it is shocking, but the taboo part of it makes it a little delicious... :)

Heartbreaker isnt a step-brother/step-sister book but more like a guardian/ward (the h lived with the H until she was a teenager then moved in with his sister so there wouldnt be gossip)

But Diana Palmer has several...
Desperado- they are "foster" siblings
Heartless (Hqn)- step-brother/step-sister
Her Kind Of Hero: The Last Mercenary\Matt Caldwell: Texas Tycoon- The first book has step-brother/step-sister
Man Of Ice (Man Of The Month, Celebration 1000) (Silhouette Desire)

I think there might be a couple more but those popped in my head..

"Taboo" by Olivia Rupprecht is an oldie but a goodie

I know T.L Haddix already mentioned the "Harper Connelly" series by Charlaine Harris, but I wanted to 2nd it. I remember on an earlier thread quite a few people were creeped out by the whole "step" issue but it doesnt bother me, no relation by blood. Anyway, its a very good series.

Honest Illusions by Nora Roberts. Roxanne's father takes in Luke Callahan when they are both children. He never formally adopts him, but considers him his son.

I loved Honest Illusions. I read it after it was recommended by this group and was glad I did. It kept me entertained the entire time I read it, so much so I read it in a day.

SPOILERS. The store begins with Luke, an abused 12-year-old boy. He ran away from home and stole to survive. He is at a carnival and is caught by Max who sees him pick pocketing. Max takes Luke into his house and shows him how to be a magician. Roxanne is Max's daughter, who is four years younger then Luke when the story starts. As Luke and Roxanne grow into adults at some point they become sexually aware of each other. The sexual energy between Luke and Roxy becomes intense. There is a lot of build up to when they finally make love. The book has other things happen that are unexpected which helped keep things interesting. Of course, there is a good ending!

I forgot to mention Forbidden Fire by Charlotte Lamb, one of my favorites. SPOILERS It is not PC as the h, Louise, was too young when she and H, Daniel, her stepbrother, get married. Also, he raised her. There is a decent amount of sexual tension and jealously. Intense kissing and when they later made love it is brief. Typical late 1970's and early 1980's.

It's been years since I read it, but Honest Illusions was, as I recall, one of the best Nora Roberts books. I'll second it.

The Harper Connelly thing - it was a little weird for me, to be honest, because (and I don't think this is a spoiler but just in case- Spoiler!) Harper and Tolliver had gone around the country for years introducing themselves as brother and sister. There was a little bit of the squick factor there for me because of that, but it is a decent series. I just wish she hadn't had them so adamant in the earlier books about their sibling relationship.

Another book similar to Taboo by Olivia Rupprecht (very good book) is Meant for Each Other by Rebecca Winters. Both have older heroine's. I wish there were more like this
