Toni Blake's Tempt Me Tonight, which is up for a RITA this year, features a hero and heroine who were high school sweethearts. I love this book.

Sophia Nash's The Kiss features a hero and heroine who have known one another since childhood. Very good story.

I love childhood sweethearts h/h's too. Off the top of my head 2 really good historicals....The Kissing Gate by Fiona Carr (20 years later after being childhood sweethearts) and The Wish Club by Stella Cameron..another really fun book. I liked the Toni Blake mentioned too. I know there are more. I will think on it and report back later. Also...cheri, who posts here likes childhood sweethearts too. So...cheri...think of more. You always have good suggestions! Smile Good Luck cpeachy.

Stephanie Laurens, A Secret Love.

In one delightful scene, Gabriel and Alathea (aged 30 and 29) are spatting. Chillingworth listens for a while and then comments, "You know each other," to which Alathea replies, "From birth."

I just read one like this that was quite nice, Susan Wiggs' "Summer By the Sea." It's set in a small beach community in Rhode Island and features recipes for italian classics as the heroine is a restauranteur.

Another is very well known amongst the romance community, Deborah Smith's "A Place to Call Home." Generally, it's seen as a very good book, but people tend to like the first part more than the second. It's set in the South and has that vibe of the southern novel.

So many books ,so little time

The husband will not be happy Rolling Eyes thank god my timing is perfect ,you can't anger a pregnant wife mwahahahahahah

For those who like me love this theme there is :

The Last Good Man,Kathleen Eagle ,is quite good .
Return to Oak Valley ,Shirlee Busbee ,quite good too but AAR did not like it (D+)
And my all time favorite Into the fire ,Anne Stuart ,i know a lot of poeple do not like it but for me it is the ultimate comfort read

This post reminded me of another Susan Wiggs book with childhood sweethearts, Summer at Willow Lake. I read it a few months ago - quite good!

Hrrmmm I'm not sure if this was mentioned yet, but Pamela Clare's "Unlawful Contact" has a similar theme.

The Hero and Heroine go to the same high school, she a dork and he the town's bad boy. They're attracted to each other and one night she gave him her virginity. He left town, and years later they see each other again (through some incident I do not want to spoil) and sparks fly. Its romantic suspense, but the love story is very good and their romance very hot Very Happy
