Please help with the title of this book! I believe it was one of a series and this one was about one of four English sisters and very funny. The story is told from the perspective of the sister who is getting married to an engineer and she is embarrassed to be thinking to herself that he has rescued her from a crazy life with her family. I remember that she and her mother rode the Tube under the Thames - which she found very exciting and her mother found terrifying.
Before the wedding, the sisters and their mother go to some ritzy restaurant for tea but discover they have almost no money but the mother deals with the head waiter with honesty and class. One of the married sisters is wealthy and arranged it but never pays for anything. Once married, they take a honeymoon cruise to Australia where the husband has taken a job for a year or so. One of the bride's younger sisters is also on the ship relocating to Australia - either to work or live with another relative.

The bride and the sister are sitting in deck chairs behind the husband and his friend and the bride observes her sister just gazing adoringly at the back of the guy's head. That's all I remember but always wanted to read the other books by this author - whoever she is. I remember the cover was solid red with the only the title on it.
Forgive me if I do this wrong, I am new at this.
I read a book about a year or so ago unfortunately, I cannot remember if it is one I got at the library or what. I cannot remember the title or author and can only remember a couple of scenes. I want to say it was in an anthology but I am not sure. Here Goes: It starts off with the heroine sneaking into a guy's house to return something or maybe retrieve something as a favor to a friend.
Her friend is the mistress of the guy who owns the house. She is caught by a different guy hero who is staying there I believe he is the guy's brother or something and I believe she convinces him that she is the mistress because he was drunk.

Next, she runs into him and is introduced to him at a party. He recognizes her and she recognizes him and they end up in a discussion and kissing in a dark room. She is daring and willful. I have been trying to figure out this book for over a year now. He is now a famous businessman. He came to buy a product. The heroine also wants to buy that product. She is known as a ruthless CEO and her career depends on that product.
The hero is the heroine's sister's friend. They meet at the sister's engagement. When the hero was here he used to be a rouge. The heroine always had a crush on him.
So when she was in college she created such a situation that they had to spend the night in a hut and she had previously planned that she'll lose her virginity to him. Later like always the hero plans not to call her but when she doesn't call he does. He calls for a week she never picks up. He thinks she ditched him because he is poor and she doesn't pick up because she knows he'll break her heart This thought drives him to the top. I can't remember the name but it's kind of bugging me right now.
I posted in the other thread a while back but did not get a response so I thought I would try again. I read this book years ago it was about a French heroine she's living in France and she happens to meet the hero by chance they spend a night together and she finds out that she is pregnant. The hero has already left at this point I think he was in the military?
He was British though. Her father finds out and sends her to a convent where she gives birth to a daughter that she names Emma. A few years pass and she somehow ends up in England and becomes the governess? The hero had thought that she abandoned their child this whole time so he hates the heroine for her actions but they end up making up by the end of the book I think she might be blind??? I clearly remember that she was a French aristocrat though but she becomes broke after the French revolution. I really really hope someone recognizes this book I am almost convinced that I've just imagined the whole thing.
Glad to find you all and looking forward to recommendations and help.

Unknown title and author. Book published before I believe it was set in Scotland. He may have plotted with her brother to sleep with her in order to get he pregnant and pass the child off as his son's. If anyone could help, I'd greatly appreciate it.

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.
