I love books where the heroine comes very close to death, and the hero...
....Loses it and realizes his mistakes.
....Brakes down in a public way.
....thinks she's really dead for a minute or two.

Anny ideas for me. Also when the heroine is close to death because of the hero, she jumps in front of a bullet, or hero makes heroine upset and she gets into an accident...Ect.

Where Dreams Begin by Lisa Kleypas
Zachary Bronson has built an empire of wealth and power -- now he needed a wife to help secure his position in society...and warm his bed in private.But not just any woman will do for a man whom all of London knows is not a gentleman. Then he unexpectedly swept Lady Holly Taylor into his arms for an unasked for -- but very alluring -- kiss, and suddenly he knew he had found a woman whose fierce passions matched his own.

Lady Holly Taylor was beautiful, generous, and, as a widow, destined to spend her life playing by society's rules, even when they went against her bolder instincts. But Zachary's kiss had aroused her, and though the shocking offer he made didn't include marriage, she was compelled to risk everything and follow him to the place where dreams begin.

Jennifer Ashley did this a couple of times in her Mackenzie books. Was it Mackenzie? Hold on. Yeah, Mackenzie brothers

Thanks for including the author's name. There 3 or 4 authors who have Mackenzie series.

There sure are a lot of Mackenzie family books! In general I've lost my taste for highlanders but these struck a chord

Three Wishes the H breaks down in a courtroom?? i believe when he learns the h was officially dead for 2 min while giving birth to their child

Games of the Heart (The 'Burg Series) by Kristen Ashley. The h takes three in the chest and the H is holding her hand as they arrive at the hospital, begging her not to let him go. She let's go when her heart stops as they arrive and he has to wait for several hours to learn she survived. Very intense scene.

Seduction of a Highland Lass (The McCabe Trilogy Book 2) by Maya Banks. The h takes an arrow meant for the H. The aftermath is very moving in the way the H cares for her when he thinks she is most likely to die. I bawled, it was so good. In my top 10 favourite historicals.

I see thatThe More I see You is a time travel book which I usually HATE but this one looks really good. Can I get a spoiler though?

Does she get to stay with him in his time? I hate it when the heroine is transported back and then meets a guy in her time period that looks just like her hero from the past .... I don't wanna bother if that's the case.

B.C Wheeler, Its one of my favorite books. Lynn Kurland writes wonderful time travels. The h is a modern gal who is transported back in time. Towards the end of the book she does go back to to her time, accidentally, but does find a way to get back to the H. Her arrival back in time with all of the goodies she packed (chocolate, books, photos and so on) is so sweet. It has a great HEA.
I hate to give too much away. I've read all of Lynn Kurland's time travel books and love them all. None of her h's or H's find a look alike in their own time. Give her a try.

Thanks Banana Boat!! I will give it a try :)

Lawman (Hqn Romance) by Diana Palmer. Treats h rotten, so bad the town turns on him. Turns out she is not only pregnant by him, but has a dangerous heart condition and nearly dies.

Amazon Lily-The title sounds cheesy, but it's a great story. :-)

I would second Seduction of a Highland Lass. I balled my eyes out. It was so good. A few others would be The Duke Next Door by Celeste Bradley, Game of Scandal by Kathryn Smith and Rules of Engagement by Christina Dodd. I probably have read more but these are all I can think of.

there is a great scene in the "Up in the Air Series" - R.K Lilley
the h gets shot in the head by her mad abusive father in her back garden. the H is to late to protect her. finding her in the garden not breathing he believes she is dead for a few minutes.
the intense way in which it was written from the POV of the H really got to me. i remember feeling physically ill reading threw this scene.
