The list author says: "These are my favorite themes in harlequin and harlequin like books. I'm an avid collector and I'm continually seeking for more to add to my collection. I had some hits and I won't really bother with the misses. These are my favorites so far."
"It's a quintessential step sib romance that is a must read. One of my very favorites from Lynne Graham. They have a good amount of tension and a right amount of sparks. Their parents married twice and they found themselves at opposite stance in both situation. To solve the problem, he whisks her off to his private villa and poof they couldn't escape their mutual attraction."
"I just recently picked up this book. It's hot! She's adopted into his home and she's a little older. I really liked how much you get to see how much he is in love with her and he waited. When she suddenly cracks, he refused to back down and let her ignore it. The tension is above and beyond. I just had to add it to this list."
"This one was a surprise. She actually has a good head on her shoulders. She is a contradiction between reason and naivety. She loves him but she is not one to put up with his indecisiveness. She is a great character to read."
"She's adopted into his family. It's a bit different, but it's still a memorable book. It's a good balance of bubbly and intense. He was unsure of how she felt, so he found a catalyst to set the ball rolling."
"It's a fun read. It has the right amount of tension and sparks. The verbal sparing was adequate and the plot was great. There this misunderstanding that they have to resolve. She needed him to relinquish control of her inheritance, but he had more plans for her. She had no option but to dance to his tune."
"He is adopted to her family. There's a lot of play with haunting emotions. She had to have his permission to liquidate some assets of her deceased father. He thought she was finally ready to face their music."
"He is also adopted into her family and like Passionate enemy there's a lot of play with emotions. It's a thin line between hatred and love. She had make amends and try to rebuild the relationship between her parents and him."
"Tension!! need I say more?They had shared great passion when she was young and naive. He felt guilty so he pushes her away. Then she left to find her independence but she eventually had to come home and face the music."
"It's a bit slow, but it delivers. He was a lot older than her and heads the family. They were butting heads because of their shared half-sibling's affair with an older woman. He slowly but sweetly veers their relationship to a passionate one."
"They are step-siblings and it's a tug of war. It's centers over the question of how much can you sacrifice for love. He was her knight and to save the damsel he set her free. Tragedy sends her home to where she belongs but can't seem to manage to fit in."
"They are cousins. It's also a heavy play in emotions and a little suspense. The plot is meaty. She was product of a very messy affair. Out of curiosity she tried to be close to the father she had lost, but his nephew was determined to uncover her secrets."
"They are distant cousins. They had meet during her younger years. She is a wine consultant and had to visit his exclusive chateau. He blackmails her in pretending to be engage despite the fact that she was also engage to another guy. There's this misunderstanding that resolves to a happy ending. Love does conquer all, in this book."
"She is a rebel and I love the interactions the main characters have with each other. She is his family's pet, everyone's favorite. Her family has worked under his and she's has grown up with his younger siblings. He left to give her time to grow up, but he finds that she needed him to do so."
"He is her father's business partner who takes care of her after her father dies. He wanted to marry her as soon as but she was a little immature to really know how trust him. It makes perfect sense! She was young. It has lots of firework and a great verbal dialogue."
"One of my favorites. Their family is close neighbors and business associates. He is the older brother-like character falls in love with her. The plot is really great and the characters are enjoyable. She is strong and independent and he is a force to reckon with."
"He is the head of her step dads family. He gave her this unicorn to stop her from crying when she was sad. He said he will help her get her heart's desire when she decides to return it to him. He does give her it to her. A really good book."
"He is a cousin by marriage. He fell in love with her and waited patiently for her. She avoided her family because she wasn't ready to face him. It's very sweet how he shows her how much he loves her with just the little things."
"She is his ward. Something happens and she moves away. Then she returns to find that he hid a lot of things from her. It's a full read and it's a tad bit heavy. He is bitter but he doesn't deny he loves her. It's a lot of hurt and making up which is always fun."
"Their family is close. He is her best friend's older brother, who kept tabs on her over the years. They were always bickering then he found a way to convince her to be on the same side. They become a team, and their lies end up tying them closely together."
"I like the way that she thinks. The tandem between the two characters is very much alive. He is her cousin of sorts. They grew up competing with each other for the control of their grandfather's land. It's great how their whole family and of course the man himself plots to get them together. The tug of war is on her part, but he just tugs her to him."
"She grew up in his family home where everyone was enchanted with her as a child. Her mom was vindictive and bitter so she severed all ties with the family and alienated her from all their love. He is like her step uncle, who is very enamored with her. It's a light drama that pulls on your heartstrings."
