Thank you

There's a special title listing for that. Have you seen it?

Some books not on the list:

On a Wicked Dawn and On a Wild Night by Stephanie Laurens

Love Is in the Heir by Kathryn Caskie (The most memorable thing about that book is the title, though.)

Three Nights With a Scoundrel by Tessa Dare

Elizabeth Rolls' "Unexpected Bride" is about twins, one of whom is blind and substitutes for the other in marriage. I thought it was pretty good.

"The Wrong Bride" by Susanna Carr has another twin who takes her sister's place at the wedding - it's very amusing! [It's a little hard to find.]

I like books like that - I'll have to try Dick's suggestion! Smile

I am trying to remember the name of the book, but the plot went something like this: A recently widowed vicar's wife takes care of a man after he has an accident racing his carriage. She has a young son I believe. He thinks he ought to marry her because she is about to be ousted from her home by the new vicar. But when they get to the church, he signs his twin brother's name to the marriage register instead of his own. Anyone else recall this book?

Would that one be Caroline Linden's What A Gentleman Wants? I thought it sounded familiar but in scanning my book reading notes, all I wrote was "Duke's brother married her using Duke's name".

I second the Stephanie Laurens novels, On A Wicked Dawn and On A Wild Night. Although, they aren't really stand-alones. The twins are cousins to the protective heroes in the 6 previous books who are always watching out for them and driving away any eligible men who show an interest in them.

In these books, you find out what happens with the twins within one book:
Ravished and Seduced by Virginia Henley
A Matter of Temptation by Lorraine Heath.

In these books, each twin has their own story:
The Husband Trap and The Wife Trap by Tracy Anne Warren
Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake and Ten Ways to Be Adored When Landing a Lord by Sarah MacLean.

I also really liked Stephanie Laurens On a Wicked Dawn and On a Wild Night. They are the first books that I read by her. They got me hooked on her.

Nothing But Trouble by Rachel Gibson. The heroine is an identical twin and there's also a small secondary romance for her sister. This is part of a series, you don't need to have read the rest to understand what's going on especially with the main romance but it helps with the secondary romance.

I forgot about that one. Who did Chelsea's twin get involved with? I'm drawing a blank there.
