She is the great-great-granddaughter of the celebrated Cassandra Trelawney ,  who was also a Seer. It was Trelawney herself who made the prophecy concerning Lord Voldemort and the one with the power to vanquish him Voldemort took this to mean Harry Potter during her job interview with Albus Dumbledore. Professor Trelawney continued to teach well into the s , continuing her tradition of predicting the deaths of her students.
There were three generations between her and Cassandra Trelawney , who was a renowned Seer. No one in the family since Cassandra had possessed the Second Sight. Presumably purchasing or inheriting her wand at the age of eleven, Sybill attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry , which she referred to as her home. Being Sorted into Ravenclaw by at the latest, she may have been a member of the Slug Club  because of her ancestry. In her third year , Sybill would have taken Divination as one of her elective subjects in her third year , and achieved high grades in her O.
L and N. She married early, but it ended in unforeseen rupture due to Sybill's refusal to adopt the surname Higglebottom. They had no children. After graduating, Sybill drifted through the wizarding world , trying to gain employment based on her ancestry but scorning those who did not offer what she felt was the rightful treatment of a true Seer.
Sybill making the prophecy at the Hog's Head. Dumbledore agreed to give her a chance because of her ancestry. It so happened that the Death Eater Severus Snape was eavesdropping at the door, which placed Trelawney in great danger from Voldemort. Hoping to protect Sybill, Dumbledore hired her. Professor Trelawney teaching Divination at Hogwarts. As a professor, Trelawney taught in the Divination Classroom on the seventh floor of the North Tower.
Sybill made many predictions over her time at Hogwarts. Minerva McGonagall once claimed that she predicted the death of one of her students every year, none of whom had yet died. Knowing her talents pale in comparison to her colleagues,  Professor Trelawney very rarely attended meals in the Great Hall with the rest of the school, preferring to remain in her tower. She appeared to be acquainted with a certain colleague of hers, but frequently clashed with Professor McGonagall.
At some point in the — school year , Professor Trelawney locked her classroom door, with a notice saying " Do not disturb, crystal gazing ". Harry Potter , who had just joined the school, attempted to open it without realising that it was locked. During the — school year , Professor Trelawney gained Harry Potter as a student, who had only chosen to take Divination because his friend, Ronald Weasley , had. During a class on tea leaves, Trelawney saw the Grim — a well-known omen of death — in Harry Potter's cup. This visibly disturbed the class, who went rather shaken to Transfiguration with Professor McGonagall.
Trelawney inadvertently insulting Hermione Granger during one of her lessons. After Neville broke two teacups, Lavender's rabbit Binky was killed, and Hermione Granger, after being greatly insulted by Professor Trelawney, stormed out of a lesson, Lavender and Parvati Patil became great supporters of Trelawney. An impatient McGonagall stated that they would risk it.
Two hours later, both Harry and Ron bolted up from their seats, causing Trelawney to shrilly ask which one of them got up first. McGonagall dryly joked that unless there was a mad axe-man waiting in the Entrance Hall to slaughter the first person he saw, it made little difference.

However, Ron was accompanied by Scabbers at the time, who unbeknownst to all was actually Peter Pettigrew , thus meaning that thirteen dined at the table. As Dumbledore stood to welcome Trelawney, he was the first to rise from a table of thirteen, and also the first to die, meaning that Trelawney predicted the death of Dumbledore years before the event occurred. Trelawney making her second prophecy with Harry Potter as a witness. While conducting the third year exams with the Gryffindors , Professor Trelawney, while invigilating Harry Potter, entered a trance and made a prediction that the Voldemort 's servant would be freed, returning to him that night.

When she returned to normal seconds later, she could not remember anything happening. Harry later told this to Professor Dumbledore , who jokingly said that he should offer her a pay raise for making a total of two real prophecies. Professor Trelawney teaching Harry Potter and his class. The following year, the Triwizard Tournament took place at Hogwarts and Harry Potter was one of the champions. Trelawney continued to annoy him with increased predictions of his death. She guessed that Harry had lost his parents because he was born during midwinter, heralding a tragic life.
However, Harry told her he was born in July. Unbeknownst to Harry, who was the final horcrux, Voldemort was born in December. Once, Rita Skeeter , in the form of a beetle, eavesdropped upon Harry during Trelawney's lesson when Harry had a crisis caused by his scar. Trelawney was very excited and pressed Harry to tell her what had happened, saying that she had experience in these matters and that the clairvoyant vibrations of her room could allow him to see further than he had ever seen before.
Unfortunately for Trelawney, Harry refused. At the end of the year, Trelawney learned about the death of Cedric Diggory and the return of Voldemort. The Second Wizarding War had begun. Early on in the — school year , Dolores Umbridge was made Hogwarts High Inquisitor by Ministry edict, and appeared in Trelawney's classroom with a clipboard, making notes.
Trelawney saw this as an intrusion, and was most upset and angered by it. Umbridge asked Trelawney to justify her teaching techniques and required a prediction from her. Trelawney at first was indignant, and haughtily claimed that the Inner Eye did not See upon command. Unimpressed, Umbridge made to leave. Panicked, Trelawney attempted to persuade Umbridge that she could suddenly see great danger in her future, but the High Inquisitor remained unmoved -- whether Trelawney had actually seen Umbridge in danger in the forest at the end of the year or whether she just made it up based on the Defence Against the Dark Arts curse is unknown.
Umbridge later put Professor Trelawney on probation , which greatly distressed and insulted her. She became uncharacteristically brisk and started drinking a large amount of cooking sherry , which she hid in the Room of Requirement.

Umbridge would stalk Trelawney during every one of her lectures, interrupting her increasingly hysterical talks with difficult questions regarding Heptomology and Ornithomancy , insisting that Sybill predict students' answers before they gave it to her, and demanding she demonstrate her skills at the crystal ball , tea leaves and rune stone in turn. Umbridge states that she saw no improvement in Trelawney's performance to the point that she could not predict tomorrow's weather. Umbridge presenting Trelawney's Order of Dismissal.
Eventually, Trelawney was dismissed by Umbridge, who almost threw her bodily from the castle, gleefully relishing the fact that Trelawney was in paroxysms of grief over her dismissal. Before she could be chased off the premises, Dumbledore came to her aid and insisted that she stay at Hogwarts, as Umbridge had no authority to banish her from the school grounds. This was partially to protect Trelawney from Voldemort who would target her for making the prediction concerning Harry and himself.
Trelawney was replaced by the centaur Firenze , appointed by Dumbledore, much to Umbridge's shock and fury; she hated both the fact that Firenze was what she called a "half-breed" and that Dumbledore appointed someone without consulting her despite Educational Decree Number Twenty-Two does not let her deny such an action. She was finally reinstated to her teaching position after Umbridge was suspended. This meant that, since Dumbledore could not ask him to return to the herd that tried to kill him, she would have to share classes with Professor Firenze, a fact she was not pleased with.
That year, Trelawney and Firenze divided the students between them by year. Trelawney taught the fifth  and sixth years. She continued to drink due to her humiliation of working with a "horse". She hid her cooking sherry in the Room of Requirement. At Horace Slughorn 's Christmas party, Trelawney was morosely drunk. She spent the night listening to Luna Lovegood 's speeches on the "Rotfang Conspiracy" and that Rufus Scrimgeour was a vampire. She seemed rather interested. Their meeting was cut short when Harry Potter arrived for one of his private lessons with the Headmaster.
Later, Trelawney attempted to enter the Room of Requirement, but was thrown out by Draco Malfoy , who apparently used Peruvian Instant Darkness Powder to conceal his identity. Harry Potter found her sprawled on the floor and helped her up. He encouraged her to accompany him to Dumbledore's office to tell the Headmaster what had happened to her.
On the way, she started talking about the day she was hired. When Trelawney mentioned that the eavesdropper had been Severus Snape , Harry left her standing in the corridor and ran off to confront Dumbledore with this information. She stated that she missed having Harry in her classes, and though he was never much of a Seer, he was a "wonderful Object. During the — school year, Voldemort had taken over Hogwarts and made Snape headmaster. Cast members dialog is dumbed-down in sooooo many movies not this one you'd think you were watching Men-Child and Women-Child behavior.
People drink wine and sodas. A hot toddy can be extremely festive! Christmas movies can be really stupid and schmaltzy and most of them I can't stand. I ended up looking for something to watch this afternoon and came across this movie and decided to give it a try.
This was very well done. Yes, you have some typical things going on that many feel good happy-ending type movies have in common, but this is one of the ones to not miss. Great cast all-around with great casting nods especially to the actor who played the king and the actor who portrayed his executive assistant. Even though you see many similar things in the story line that can be found in other similar films, this one was a bit more complex and well rounded and just overall, well done. I enjoyed this very much and will probably watch again.
Loved it!!! IndyJudy 22 December I think the acting in this movie is the best I have seen. There have been a few Hallmark Christmas movies on TV this season that have been just painful to watch - no chemistry between actors and bad acting. This was a refreshing change. Worth the time! Sure, the story line is familiar She is hired to be a governess for his high-spirited daughter at their European home and the attraction between the two starts.
Of course, there is a Christmas Eve Ball and he asks the governess to attend. She looks absolutely gorgeous in a borrowed gown and the king can't take his eyes off of her. A "happily ever after" ending comes with the king professing his love for her. Every girl's dream is to have a prince or king sweep her off her feet Disney has sold us on this story line over the years, haven't they? Irishchatter 7 November I really liked watching Danica McKellar's character from being a maid to becoming a princess.
I liked her quirkiness and the fact, she stole the king's daughters heart by spending time with her as a governess. Ellie Botterill as the little princess, was absolutely adorable and so pretty like, I could definitely see her big in the future somewhat. She really is a great little star! Alexandra Evans was a good actress too with playing the "future queen" hopeful. She would be even pretty as the queen too but as you know with fairy tales, they go for the pretty ones to be left out and shouldn't be married to the "ultimate king".
This is a good Christmas movie, its even a good excuse to kill time by watching it. This is one of the better Hallmark holiday season movies. The cast is quite good. Danica McKellar plays a hotel maid. It's good she isn't too glamorously beautiful so she can be believable. After being fired she is hired as a governess for some minor European royal family.
She wins over the bratty princess she has to govern and the King's heart as well. The supporting cast is quite good especially the British cast. Doesn't look too fake royalty like some other similar Hallmark movies. The actress who plays the countess he is matched to is quite pretty and good too at acting jealous. The way things work out at the end romantically is quite logical without being too annoying.
Less annoying than the usual Hallmark Christmas movie. One they can replay next year. Some of the other reviews are talking about how similar it is to other movies but let me tell you. I cried my eyes out, so beware! It was an amazing movie! Definitely my new favorite so to say at the least I highly recommend this movie!
It is a great movie to watch with family or even just your significant other. This is the first Christmas hallmark that I've watched that I have actually fell in love with and cried so much with. I believe the creators chose the perfect people for all the roles as well. I do hope there is a second movie to this that can explore not only the main characters lives but as for the help as well. I would love to explain that, but I don't want to spoil this movie for anyone :. We've all seen this film a million times, most notably, "The Sound of Music.
It's the kind of thing you'd watch if your parents were in the room rather than, say, Boardwalk Empire. She takes a job in Europe as a governess to a king's daughter and moves into the castle. The king is played by MI-5's Rupert Penry-Jones, actually kind of a big actor to be in a film like this. Nevertheless, as soon as we see his handsome face and hear that accent, we know what's going to happen.
She easily can pass for someone in her twenties. She gives a lovely performance. Penry-Jones is always good and does the dignified, formal kingly bit very well. This is an enjoyable movie to be taken just as it is, sweet and romantic. Christmas-Reviewer 8 November Well this film is another Hallmark Movie that steel an idea from theatrical releases. This one happens to steel from "Maid in Manhattan" and "Sound of Music". In this film a young woman is a maid in hotel when she and her sister get fired from. Before you know she is "Spotted" by a Royal House Manager and she is finds herself a governess to a bratty Princess.
I saw her in another Christmas Theme film last year called "Love at the Christmas Table" and that is a better film but this one is still worth watching. This is family safe. It has a Fairy Tale Vibe to it and the film makes you root for true love. On Hallmark Channel. Watch and enjoy! Whilst it is a stereotypical Christmas film it is an archetypal example of what a Christmas film should be.
Anyone sitting down with their notepads out analyzing a film like this is just a Scrooge. It doesn't need to be over-thought, it is a Hallmark production which follows a strict guideline as to what a feel-good Hallmark production has to be family. To criticize Danica McKellar in the lead-role seems an odd thing to do. You know what to expect from a family film. Any other actor would have had to act the part in exactly the same way. There isn't room in the role or in the movie as a whole to be experimenting with method-acting or "what's my motivation?
As well as an actor, Danica is a mathematician or the other-way- around?
She chooses roles that won't clash with her scholastic career too adversely and must balance these two very different careers. The interaction between herself and the young lead comes from a genuine place. Being so bound to a past role when a child is the bane of all actors - the character she is eternally manacled to is an anagram of "epic inner woo". Danica is epic as an example of how to avoid finding too much of your inner woo and going of the rails when vulnerable and young.
She survived early-fame, looks even more attractive now and can wryly smile to herself that she has the credentials to play a part like this without any fear of any dented Porsches coming back to haunt her.

All help is appreciated! I've been trying to think of the title and author of this book for months.
I've gone through lists of books by authors I usually read but can't figure it out. The book was 4 stories in one. It was based around two sets of sisters that are cousins. Each story is for each sister. The first story starts with one set of sisters coming west to live after the civil war. The older sister's husband died in the war.
The late husbands best friend comes to live with them and of course the two fall in love and marry. The second story has the cousins, another set of sisters coming to live with them.

The older sister of this set ends up falling for the sheriff and they marry. The next story is the younger sister of the first set of sisters. She marries the rich guy in town after she lost a bet to him in a horse race. This guy was originally interested in the older cousin, but he was only interested in him because of his money.

I can't remember this title, or author!
Published late 80s, early 90s. Setting: Scotland, s, the year leading to the second Jacobite rebellion, and right after. Marriage of Convenience between I think a Campbell woman and a rebellious highland clan. The eldest daughter was to marry the man, but she fainted at the alter, so the younger daughter married him. The man she married was the only remaining son on the clan laird, who was a scarred, womanizing, jerkface.
The woman stood out for being practical and smart; before marrying she demanded concessions like having soldiers periodically check on her to make she is ok. This has ramifications later because the English officer who checks on her becomes a friend, and she uses him to save her husband. The woman ended up in the highlands at the castle, made friends with the old cook and her young maid, but lived separate from her husband who was sleeping with his father's redheaded mistress, Fiona?
Eventually, they go to a highland wedding, the husband gets sucked into Bonnie Prince Charles' rebellion, and the wife returns to her father's estate. At that wedding the h beloved cousin is killed by the H's father. Eventually the rebellion fails, the wife finds the husband, her father captures him, he is sentenced to hang, and she uses Rob Roy I think? They sail to America. Not a lot of sex, and a lot of historical detail, in the book.
There are a lot of secondary plot points. I honestly remember almost everything except the name and title. Cover, I think, was a castle in the distance, blue sky, green hills. I'm looking for a book that I do not know the title or author to. I know it was published before The heroine travels to the Yukon, I think looking for her father I believe. He works in the gold fields in Dawson City. If I'm not mistaken she ends up marrying his younger partner or something like that.
His name is Logan not sure if its his first or last name, It might have been O'shea or that could have been the girls last name. I think she also ended up leaving him and going back down to Dawson. There was also I think a Mountie that was vaing for her affections as well. I just remember his name being Logan. I have been looking for this book forever and have been trying to locate it with no such luck.
They end up in Scotland, at her birth father's. It doesn't sound perfect, but the kidnapped h helps heal the H's little sister who was raped by h's stepbrother or something. Part of a series, though. Hi, I have being trying to rememeber the name of a book. The basic synopsis is that a florist is dropping off flowers at her brother and his new wife's house only to find her sister in law flirting with a man. The man wants revenge on the family because of something her father did so he decides to break up the marriage.
The sister in law is young, bored, her husband is always away and she is feeling neglected. No doubt she would be easily seduced. To protect or brothers marriage she suggests the man use her for revenge instead. He agrees and says they should get married. The woman is in a relationship with a man and breaks it off to marry the virtual stranger.
They get married, with the women wearing jeans to her wedding. After the wedding the groom finds out that the father disaproves of the daughter and it is no big deal that he married her. They all in love etc etc with him building her a greenhouse and buying her a car I think there was a line in there, like "you're the typre of man who'd by his child a train set and then end up playing with it yourself.
I think there was something in there about her always wearing clothes with flowers on them. The sister in law gets jealous. There is a jealous scene where the groom thinks his new wife is getting lunch with an ex. There is a happy resolution. It is a contemporary novel written in the last years, it may have been a country setting, I think there was a mention of a cowboy hat. Hello I'm looking for a book that I read years ago. I'm pretty sure that it was written in the 80s or early 90s.
It's a Regency romance book. It's a bout a young redheaded girl who becomes the ward of an English Lord. I think he's of Spanish or Italian descent. He hates that he is attracted to her because he's older than her. He hates that she has beautiful red hair and makes her wear hats anytime she's outdoors.
She's very feisty and sometimes immature because of her age. I think someone tries to kidnap her. But he thinks that she ran away and when he finds her it's pouring down rain they make love and he doesn't realize, because of the rain and all her skirts, that she's bleeding to death because she's been cut on her leg. She gets pregnant, they get married, and she has a baby boy.
I can't remember why but she ends up leaving him and he doesn't know where she's at. When he finds her she's a governess, they get back together. She leaves him again this time for his best friend and she's pregnant. He finds out where she's at and kidnaps her. She ends up giving birth to their little girl on the ship. And after that I really can't remember anything else. Thank you ;. I'm so glad I have found this site. I have found many books to add to my "to read" list. I have read a book some years back.
This is what I remember about it. The hero is a cowboy -in texas, perhaps? The son had interfered with mail even then -I think it was the late s, but don't hold me to it- it was a crime and the boy roughly aged 8 has admitted to it. If I remember correctly, he said the that he liked the picture the heroine of the story sent; his father had no idea of it.
The heroine is a woman with a small boy. He is approximately the same age as the hero's son. The boys don't get along at first, but as the story unfolds they practicaly become inseparable. The hero's son admits near the end of the story that he was jealous of the other boy because the heroine's son had a mother who wanted to protect him.
See, the story begins in front of store -feed store, maybe- and if I remembert it right, the woman was concerned about her son getting her. The heroine is from Ireland and is on the run. The man, and later his family, accused her of kindapping to separate her from her son. And she saw the ad for a teacher as a chance for escape as far west as possible. The offer I think included the room and board. Anyway, the matter came before a judge and that is how our heroine came to live on the ranch and became a teacher to his son.
Thanks for you help! I am desperately trying to find a book I believe I read in the mid to late 90s not totally sure. It would most likely be Harlequin or Silhouette. It is about a man who is after the person who killed his wife and twin daughters in a car bombing. Then a few months later she discovered she is pregnant. She has three identical triplet boys and she tries to find the man she spend the night with but with no luck. Then she runs into to him like three or four years later.
I think at this point the triplet boys are around three years old and he then protects her and his sons because the man she had been dating for the last six months is the one who initially killed his wife and twin daughters. I think the triplets names were Ryan, Sean and unsure of the other one. If anyone one remembers this I would greatly appreciate it. I loved this book and would love to read it again. I scanned through the last post but not these ones yet. So if someone has already asked about this book just point me in the right direction please.
I mostly remember scenes ant he plot and I think it was a Harlequin. But it was about a guy, who used to be a surfer I think and now he works for or owns a magazine and is doing a photo shoot of the new swim line. Back when he was still surfing he met a girl had an amazing night with her but was so drunk he only remembers the tattoo on her back and not her face. She owns a shop now that sells organic fiber? Very hippy. I remember the part where she, I think, bets him that her swimsuits are better and she can make the models look better in the shoot than he can.
He makes her wear one of her own suits and realizes that she is the one he was looking for and when he asks why she never said anything she tells him that she already knows who he is.

It may also have the word raven or midnight or dark angel in it.. Hi everyone, I would appreciate the help if anyone knows of a book that I've been searching for a few years now. What I remember is that she has been betrothed already. She's really good with her bow and arrow. When the hero meets her to marry her, she's being attacked at her house in the woods as he meets her.
She believes she's in love with a friend she's known since childhood. But she starts to be really attracted to her hero. She freaks out of how attracted she's becoming of him so she convinces her twin sister to say that she's feeling ill in her bedroom and she escapes in either a rug or trunk I vaguely remember and then goes on horse back to her childhood friends house. Without realizing that's she's being followed and she's the one who's been the target this whole time.
Sorry I wrote a super long post. Thanks Kate Hi, I've been looking for a particular historical romance for weeks now. I read it at least 6 or 7 years ago, maybe more. It is similar to 'Flowers from the Storm' by Laura Kinsale in that the Hero is struck down by something that makes everyone believe he has become an imbecile. I think he might be a Duke or an Earl? It is set in England maybe regency or just before. There is something about all the other family members dying or being killed by the French?
I'd be most grateful if anyone knows what this book is. I'm new to librarything and I'm really hoping someone will recognize a book from a very brief description because I can't remember more than the basics of the plot really. Years ago I read a romantic mystery about a cold, cruel twin who convinces her twin sister to take her place.
The cold, cruel twin is in a very unhappy marriage and has a daughter who she doesn't seem to care about at all. The nice twin goes along with her plan for some reason and falls for the husband and the little girl. The husband at first is baffled by her new, kind behavior because he was used to her gold digging, heartless twin and unaware she had a twin. Eventually he starts to fall for the new twin still thinking its his wife. Sorry, that's all I can remember.
I know its not very specific. If you can think of any plots that fit, please let me know! That's it!!!!! I'm so happy I could cry! Thank you Anna :. Check out the old thread "name that book" Allright gals and? Something like temptation or scandal I think this is the most likely please please help.

I'm looking for a Harlequin, probably for the 80s or 90s. It's about two brothers and one woman. The brother the woman is married to dies. The other brother comes back into her life. Turns out the brother she was married to was gay. That's all I can remember. Hi, I am looking for a romance book I believe it may be from the 80's or 90's. It was about a tree sprite or nymph who awoke from a long sleep to a man coming to this very old house in the winter. They end up meeting and falling in love.
I cannot remember the name of the book because it has been so long since I read it. I think the title may have had the word rose in it, but I'm not positive. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!! Or possibly Fires of Winter by same author? I'm going crazy trying to find this book. I think its a harlequin superromance from the 90's.
It's about a lady who is pregnant, there are two little kids involved and a surly rancher. It takes place in either montana, north dakota or colorado. The cover has a lady in a blue dress and she's pregnant. Please help!!! I've read both of those books and they're not the one I'm looking for. Thank you, though. Please HELP!

I don't remember the name or the author, but I remember that its about a woman who walks in on her husband and he's having a threesome with his secretary and another man. She feels horrible because he was horrible to her and made her feel horrible about herself I think he called her fat, etc. I don't remember what happens after this but eventually she meets this like super hot rich entrepreneur guy, who's like in computer technology or something and she ends up living with him for a bit and they fall in love.
I think it takes place like in Washington, I remember fog and water Thanks! Hello Everyone - hope someone can help me. Last year I read a book and did not put it into my Excel sheet - now it is driving me nuts: Taks plase in England - - or so. Lord X's father dies I think he killed himself Money is very tight so with the help of his mother Lord X opens a gaming hell he is very good with cards No one knowes he's a "Lord" He restores the family money.
He meets a woman, falls in love - but if they marry - he then needs to become Lord X and everyone will know he has two identies. This is in reply to post 66 cmboyd This sounds familiar to a Sandra Brown novel I read some time ago. However, in the book the heroine was not a twin but a look-alike and she took the evil look-alike's place after a plane crash. I don't know if this could be it The first I do believe is a Harlequin or Silhouette. The heroine arrives from the country to net a husband. She has her old nanny and a younger sister who is very beautiful, but has intellectual disabilities.
At some point, someone tries to kidnap her sister. The heroine eventually gets married to a reformed rake who is ashamed of his past. The second book is actually the first part of a trilogy. It was also an historical set in England. All I remember is that there were three sisters who somehow became separated and they belonged to a theatrical family. The third is more recent and is the first of a trilogy of three sisters. Also an historical, the sisters are fashionistas and set up their shop in London. This story is about the oldest sister who has a daughter.
There is a fire started by a rival that burns down their shop and they move into the love interests home. If so, you might be interested in knowing that the third book in the series is due out this month. I loved it! I've been finding this book for years!!! But she went nevertheless, but ultimately she came up and went back to the shack where they made love. There was another scene where she felt someone staring at her from the woods.
Please if someone know the book title help me out!! Thank you so much! I think my hero is an Earl. Again thanks - I'll get there yet. Everyone have a Great Thanksgiving! Thank you 82ktleyed! I've being going quite mad, especially as I'd like to read the sequels.
Gonna to ask again. I'm looking for three books now. Is the heroine goes to Dawson city then to the goldfields to locate her father Hero's name is Logan I believe. She ends up marrying him and they leave to go to his claim by dog sled. She still ends up sleeping with him and gets pregnant. She then ends up being employed by the hero's wife who is also pregnant, making her dresses.
The wife discovers the other woman is pregnant and does not know its her husbands and shames the woman. The wife also ends up trying to kill her own child with a pillow but is stopped and I can't remember if they put her in a home or what but the hero ends up with the Heroine and finds out she has his baby as well. This one takes place in Australia on a sheep ranch. He is supposed to be engaged to her sister. She offers to marry him in her sister's place. Also they're father wanted the sister to marry the man so he could pay off the family's debt.

Just found out about this place, this looks great. English not my first language, so sorry for any mistakes. I read some posts from the previous thread and I recognized a couple books that I'm also looking for I think Can't remember the author, much less the title or the characters names. The 1st was posted in ' It is set in England near the Thames. In the beginning the heroine is a highwayman dressed as a boy and is in charge of a group of orphaned boys. She tries to rob a nobleman and he captures her and takes her to his home to be punished.
When they go to spank her they figure out she is a she and he decides to keep her and train her to be a lady. In the end she ends up being or looking like someone important that they were looking for all along. Some other random things: I think she had her first "tub" bath and compared it to bathing in the Thames. I believe she had long red hair. During regency time in London, somehow the heroine is passing as a servant boy in the hero house, I think that she tried to rob him, but the hero was sorry and gave her a job instead and then the hero some lord starts to have feelings for the 'boy', when he finds it's a girls instead, he makes her his mistress and in the end eventually they get married.
I think that she also was someone important who was kidnapped and got amnesic. I'm starting to feel that I'm mixing 2 stories The 2nd was posted in ' I think he was drunk or something and she tries to rob him and his friend and he catches her and forces her to marry her. Shes actually suppose to be an aristrocat who got kidnapped when she was young.
