When asked by William how she did it, Dolores explains she no longer wants to be the 'damsel in distress', and that she is re-writing her own story. It also seems that the more Dolores strays from her normal loop, the more she hears a mysterious voice in her head. It is later revealed that Dolores has been hearing this 'voice' in her head for the last 34 years.
It is revealed in The Bicameral Mind that Dolores was merged with the Wyatt narrative that was in development before the park opened to guests. Peter Abernathy is Dolores's father. The two share a deeply caring and loving bond. Peter believes that Dolores, his daughter, has defined his existence, and as a result he is extremely protective of her. Likewise, Dolores shows great concern for her father when he appears to be unwell, going as far as abandoning her daily loop to fetch him help. Teddy is Dolores's suitor. It is unclear how they met, how long they've been acquainted, and exactly what their relationship status is, though they are not yet engaged and Peter disapproves of Teddy - but these have all been made default by their narratives and backstories.
He is very protective of her and his role is to rescue her or challenge guests over her. He believes that he is not worthy of Dolores, and his primary drive is to atone for his past before he can start a life with her. Bernard is Westworld's head of the Behavior Division.
The heroine and hero were in love, but the heroin was kidnapped or got lost and lost her memory and the villan made her believe she was his wife. Hello I am looking for An American historical not really a western. The heroine is a "plain" school teacher for a small town. The he is a investigator with a gorgeous partner that everyone thinks solves all the cases but its really him he is seen as the slacker. He is caught in the her house overnight and they are forced into marriage.
While looking into cattle murders for her bestfriends fathers ranch. Is sent to the hospital. He starts feeling sorry for himself and never wants to se her again. She moves close to the hospital and becomes an architect building him a house with rails that he can get around in. In the end they are seen to have a small son. I'm looking for a book that I believe is Historical, but I'm not completely sure. If I'm not mistaken, at one point the heroine buries something she was reading because her uncle would take it away from her if he saw it.
I am hoping you can help me track down a historical romance book. The female character starts out at a convent which her brother placed her in for punishment in not following his orders. I think he wanted her to marry someone. She was then kidnapped by the main male character, enemy of her brother, where in the process she was cut by a knife in her leg by her guards. She remained loyal to her brother throughout the book even though everyone tries to convince her otherwise.
I think the brother had six fingers on one hand I really hope someone can help me with this, since I can't seem to get it out of my head and I'm driving myself crazy. I read a book in probably early to mid 90's, contemporary romance. The heroine is a secretary for a law firm, barely making ends meet, raising 2 younger brothers and taking care of a sick grandfather.
The hero is a lawyer, maybe state attorney, he's wealthy. Typical story line they go out, she gets pregnant, he finds out and tries to "do the right thing" she, of course, is too proud to take the help. Anyway, it all ends happily ever after but to save my life I can't remember the name of the book. Any of this sound familiar?? I was absolutely thrilled to come across this, and appreciate any help that I can get.

A couple of year's ago, I read a book thatwas, for the most part, set at the turn of the 20th century I think Somehow, a modern day girl ended up switching bodies with a girl from the era the modern girl being nicely adventurous and the historical girl a complete witch. Regardless, the once-modern-now-stuck-in-the-past-heroine falls in love with two brothers, who were the results of a similar attachment between their mutual mother and different fathers.

When the hero realises shes his ward he sends her off to school for young ladies. When she gets back shes all beutiful n stuff and i think they fall in love but the hero has his doubts that she loves the estate more than him :S Anyway if someone can please tell me the names of these books i would be eternally grateful!!

There's a storm or something, and both end up having to stay in the house for the duration of the project. Of course, they fall back in love during their time in the house.

Fast forward, the girl is grown up now, she stayed at the mansion where she was raised, taking care of the family business when the hero returns. The matriarch is now old and needs to decide who she wants to leave the bulk of her inheritance to - the hero grandson or heroine adopted or family friend's daughter who has been with her all this time or something like that. I remember something about the heroine still being haunted by the night she discovered the murder scene, she has nightmares and screams in her sleep.
I think she also sleepwalks. In the end the matriarch gives everything to the grandson. Can anyone help me figure this out?

Two young brothers are on a ship, sailing from France to America, with their parents and sister. In a storm, the younger brother is swept overboard and rescued by a couple who own a Southern plantation but could have no children of their own.
The rest of the family is rescued together and end up settling in the North. Flash forward several years to the advent of the Civil War. The older brother Alex? Somehow the two women Southern belle and Northern secret agent meet and figure out that they are in love with the brothers separated so long ago. There was something hinky about the woman who rescued the younger boy and was scared that he would abandon her now that he found his real family, but I can't remember the details.

I'm hoping someone can help me find this book! It's been awhile since I read it but I remember it was about a lost princess or aristocrat who was in danger and her maid ran away with her, the maid ended up dying and the girl was raised and worked at an inn, she had some kind of scar on her wrist that resembled a birthmark or something that only her family had or it was branded on her, I can't remember!

She goes into hiding but is believed dead. The heroine calls and announces that he should come and get his daughter to the complete surprise to the father. She thinks he knows all about the child. The heroines sister told her she was infertile when she wasn't so she could get her hooks into the father by pretending she was the mother.

Hello, I just joined and am thrilled to have found this site. I know I read it sometime in the past years, but I don't know when it was published.
I have the story stuck in my head, but for the life of me I cannot remember the title or the main characters names. This novel was set in the American West, most likely during the 19th century but I am not sure when exactly.
The book starts off with an Eastern lady traveling out to her uncle's ranch in the west I think it was Texas? She was an eastern lady who came out to the ranch by train I think she was looking for a husband? She has a conflicted relationship with the ranch foreman or maybe he was just a ranch hand.
She eventually becomes pregnant by him. They visit her family in the East, but her relative maybe a mother or an aunt? She doesn't know how to cook, or clean the house, or iron his clothes without ruining them and he mocks her for it. He refuses to allow her to have servants or any household help as she struggles with her new responsibilities.
Eventually she works herself into the ground trying to please him and she miscarries the baby that forced them to be married in the first place. There is some sort of slimy bad character who wants to cheat them out of the profits and success of all their hard work, but they defend themselves against him.. Eventually they realize they are in love and the well is a success.
I would appreciate any help or advice anyone can give me! It was a really powerful story. New to the group, I'm happy I found this site!

The cousin and other guy don't survive. They have to save the reputation of the family by killing both the creepy cousin and his creepy friend! After reading through many of your posts I was reminded of authors I had forgotten about. I found my book. Wild Rose was the name given to the main female character. This was one of the first romance novels I'd ever read and I remember loving the story.
Post from Beck The first part sounds like Lady of the West by Linda Howard but the last part where she loses the baby doesn't. Beck maybe you should check out Diana Palmer. She writes about Texans all the time but she didn't start until the s.

I am so excited to find this happy place! For the longest time I have wanted to find the first romance novel I ever read - sometime in the mid 90s - but I don't remember many details. I remember that the heroine came from an island and had been abused. She was rescued at sea by the hero's brother. She can't remember much of her past.

At one point, the hero thinks she has betrayed him to her family and becomes ruthlessly cruel. The hero becomes a successful owner of a ship construction company maybe even with her wealthy family. I still remember the last scene - where she goes to visit him at the docks and their son runs to him. If anyone has any idea, I would be so happy and so grateful!!
New to group. Looking for author of several romance books with a background theme of several women living together outside of the city in possible regency era England. They all must provide some form of income and they aren't allowed to pry into each others background. Each woman has their own book where the reader finds out about how she came to live with the other women, her background and of course finds love. I remember one of the women is discovered by her husband who she ran away from right after her marriage when he comes to the home visiting with his friend who is married to one of the other women.
They are both shocked to see the other one and he makes a strong demand for her to pack her things and be ready to go. Of course her friend is afraid he might punish her and wants her husband to stop the forced departure. The Rarest Blooms series by Madeline Hunter. Hey, I am so excited to have found this group - I have been obsessing about finding this book and i hope someone can help me. I am looking for a book I read in mid 's. It was a regency or historical. He was going to humiliate him by selling her, but falls in love and marries her secretively.
Key points: she was supposed to sleep on the floor but didn't because she has nightmares. He didn't soak English and she didn't speak his language so they used French to communicate. He refused to beat her so he used sex as a threat to train her to be a slave. He called her Le fleur. The cousins were both female and one was given to a friend.
Oh and I think she had an aversion to cuffs because she was tied down as a kid because of a fever I haven't been able to find it anywhere. Thank you! I'm looking for a historical romance, this book is in a series of books I read maybe 7 or 8 years ago. What I remember is The lead male character is named Clayton he ends up marring this girl because they were caught doing something at night alone, I think what there were doing was completely innocent, I think the may have gotten married to save her from having to marry someone else, it took awhile for them to warm up to each other.
Also the lead male has a duel with sole lord or duke or something and i think he ends up getting shot, but the other guys dies? I'm not sure I cant remember much else but if someone could help that would be awesome! It is the middle of a 3 book series. But, Clayton Harcourt is the name of the hero. I'd love help remembering the name of a book I read when I was maybe in late teens, so around mid to late 70s. It was set in Australia, and was about a rancher who starts a ranch, brings an English bride to Australia, they make a life and have a family, but she never really loves it.
They hire a housekeeper and she and the rancher fall in love and have a long time love affair and I think even a child together. He dies in her arms at the end I think there's a fire involved, but that might be me confusing it with the Thorn Birds. I think the book might be the name of the ranch, but not sure. Is that obscure enough for you? Trying to locate a historical time travel romance book from at least ten years ago and possibly longer.
Modern day at the beginning - two couples travel from New England but I think Maine to England and the men buy an unusual box in an antique store. The store owner woman tells them if they are able to reveal the secret in the box they will discover something which has been long sought. There is a powder hidden the box which when inhaled enables them to travel back in time. I do not remember how it is resolved in the present after they return but I think they switch who they are married since they have affairs with the other spouse in the past.
I think the first was written about four-five years ago with the last one in The four young men who live there have to determine if he is the father of the girl and what happened to the woman he may have impregnated. The books are all tied together but each individual book involves each man's search as he rediscovers his lost love and what has happened to them. They try to keep the baby girl hidden from the other residents but are not able to. Since there are four books, the reader learns in the final book who the father is.
I am not familiar with your time travel book but the second series you mentioned is The Runaway Brides series by Celeste Bradley.

It is about a young English woman who runs away or wanders off on the day of her arranged marriage. He has assumed that she is a woman of the streets and doesn't believe her when she tells him her story.
The plot has several twists and turns. The heroine befriends a young servant or slave who has been in love with the hero's friend for many years. There is also the woman scorned who plays a role in the plot. I remember that the heroine gets pregnant and eventually kills the villain with a sword when the hero is lured away. She is also reunited with her family when the hero arranges for them to come to Louisiana. Any help in identifying this book is greatly appreciated.
I remembered another part of the story. If I am not mistaken, the heroine meets her friend who has been in love with the hero's friend since she was basically a child by the way when the heroine tries to run away and is almost sold into slavery or prostitution with her new friend.

Believe she was an author after she disappeared. Jude Deveraux " The Blessing". This has been posted on several different forums amazon, good reads, RTbookreviews without success for the last six years and now i've gotten the bug.
I'm hoping someone can please help! I'm wondering if anyone can help me with finding the title and author of a historical romance I once read and have been looking for ever since. I can remember the heroine and the plot , but I can't remember the book's title or its author. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated! OK so here are the details: The heroine is sent off to be a type of "lady in waiting" in the French court in the beginning of the novel and I'm pretty sure it's set in the seventeenth or eighteenth century.
I seem to remember her name being Athena but I could be wrong - it may be something similar. She's blond and angelic looking and very delicate in physique She gets attacked on the streets and loses her memory and is saved by a man who takes her in as his daughter because she is strikingly similar to his own dead daughter. He raises her as his own and she eventually becomes the King's "mistress" but their relationship is never actually consummated. He eventually marries her off to someone and they fall in love but the man can't have sex with her as he is told that pregnancy may kill her.
Much of the novel is about their frustration and misunderstandings - i. I remember she gets reunited with her family after nearly being seduced by her own brother unknowingly of course - they do not know they are related. I also remember it ends on a happy note, but don't remember exactly what happened.
That's all I can remember - I hope someone can help! Flames of Passion by Sheryl Flournoy. I have read those Lisa Kleypas books--I think it's time to revisit them too. I've had trouble finding an old harlequin that I read in the late 90's early 's. It was about a ward, I think her name was Alexandria, she was living with her sister and her sister's husband, but the sister was pregnant and couldn't handle taking care of her rebellious sister so they sent her to live with the husband's brother who was some sort of travel journalist and ended up being kidnapped while covering a story abroad?
If anyone has any ideas that would be very helpful I've been trying to think of the name for a couple of years now!!! I just remembered at the beginning of the book Alexandria is dating some pretty boy named troy, they end up breaking up in the middle of the book. I was telling a friend about a book I read in the 80s and now I'm going crazy trying to find it. I so hope one of you recognizes this story. The heroine Gabrielle saves a traveling captain who was shot at and falls off his horse. She takes him unconcious to her home where her uncle forbids her to see him because he doesn't want the man interfering with his plans to sell off Gabrielle in marriage.
But Gabrielle starts sneaking into the man's room at night and becomes his phantom angel. When he leaves she dresses up as a boy Gabe , meets up with him on the road and claims to be the one who saved him. As Gabe, she becomes his constant companion, verbally torments him incessantly, and continues to save him from more assassination attempts.
But in the dark of night, she comes to him as his phantom lover. Because of this, he thinks he's going insane until Gabe has an accident on a ship, gets knocked unconscious and he discovers the truth. I seriously could go on and tell you the entire storyline, but I can't for the life of me remember the title or the author. Any help would really be appreciated. I'm in search of a book that i read in the 80's or early 90's. It was a contemporary romance, possibly a Harlequin Presents or Silhouette Desire. I would dearly love to read this one again.
