This HaBO request comes from Caroline, who is looking for this historical romance series: So I’ve been searching for this novel/series and haven’t been able to turn anything up on my own. Here’s everything (and I mean everything!) I remember about the book(s): It’s a historical romance trilogy about three sisters. I think one of them might be named Kate, and there’s one whose nickname is something like Syn or Cyn. S/Cyn is the wild one of the three, and her book’s hero is named Harry or something that starts with an H—but his nickname is “Danger,” so they’re “sin and danger” (get it?). I remember almost nothing about the plot except that at the end S/Cyn has left the city to live alone in a house on a hill, and Harry manages to find out where she’s gone and goes to dramatically confess his love for her. After he does so, she reveals that she’s pregnant. I read it back in the 2000s, and unfortunately I can’t remember anything about the other two books in the trilogy. I know it’s not much but I’m dying to figure out what these books are! The Cyn/Syn nickname feels very familiar.

No, you don’t have your days wrong and you aren’t hallucinating! Because we get so many HaBO requests, we’ll be running them periodically on Saturdays. We didn’t think you’d mind more HaBOs. This HaBO is from Suzanne who is looking for a Regency (or otherwise historically set) romance: Short haired, willowy heroine – why is it that the silly facts stick in my head? Anyhoo – I’m looking for a Regency type romance novel. The heroine is sort of boyish-looking – short hair, flat chest, etc. She falls in love with the hero and they marry. Somewhere along the way the hero “dies.” She is distressed and mourns him deeply. His friends take care of her and after some time – 2 years perhaps? – encourage her to find someone new. During that time, though, her short hair has grown long and luxurious and her curves have filled out. She gives in to the peer pressure and allows the advances of another guy. They are in her bedroom and she changes her mind. At the same time, her long lost love reappears. He’s furious to find her with someone else, which of course ruins any tenderness she felt at seeing…
