This HaBO request comes from Katie, who is searching for this historical romance: The heroine is the daughter of a physician who has since died. She is very interested in medicine. The hero is, I believe, a titled Englishman with either a son or ward. The hero and heroine marry. She continues to pursue her interest in medicine even as hero forbids her to do so. At one point, while the hero is away, the heroine stays with an old doctor she knows to learn more. Hero finds her as she and the old doctor are doing an autopsy and is livid. Late in the book, the heroine saves a boy while he is choking (?) after the hero begs her to do something. Heroine winds up leaving and leaves note for the hero that apologizes for her scandalous behavior. She has nothing to apologize for!

A Princess in Theory A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole is $1.99! This is the first book in her Reluctant Royals series and this seems to be a series that just keeps getting better with its books. Many readers loved how Alyssa writes consent, agency, and all sorts of other awesome and empowering things. However, some warn that this book takes several chapters to get into the swing of things. From acclaimed author Alyssa Cole comes the tale of a city Cinderella and her Prince Charming in disguise . . .  Between grad school and multiple jobs, Naledi Smith doesn’t have time for fairy tales…or patience for the constant e-mails claiming she’s betrothed to an African prince. Sure. Right. Delete! As a former foster kid, she’s learned that the only things she can depend on are herself and the scientific method, and a silly e-mail won’t convince her otherwise. Prince Thabiso is the sole heir to the throne of Thesolo, shouldering the hopes of his parents and his people. At the top of their list? His marriage. Ever dutiful, he tracks down his missing betrothed. When Naledi mistakes the prince for a pauper, Thabiso can’t resist the chance to experience life—and love—without the burden of his…

This HaBO is from Brittani who is trying to find this contemporary romance with perhaps some suspense elements: This is one of the very first romance novels I remember ever reading and it was fairly contemporary. A female rookie cop reunites with an old crush she grew up knowing from their old neighborhood who’s now a detective. Their first meeting as adults is awkward for her since one of her first assignments was to help catch johns and she’s wearing clothes to fit that role. Somehow they get involved in a case together and have to solve a crime while revisiting some past secret that stopped them from getting together when they were young adults. Can we solve this HaBO?

B- Love Her or Lose Her by Tessa Bailey January 14, 2020 · Avon Romance Love Her or Lose Her is a contemporary romance between a married couple on the verge of divorce. Dominic and Rosie started dating in middle school and are now married adults. They have no kids or pets. Dominic finished a military deployment overseas and is working in construction. Rosie works at a department store and dreams of opening her own restaurant. Frustrated by Dominic’s failure to communicate anything to her other than lust (every Tuesday night), Rosie moves out, but Dominic will do anything to win her back, even attend marriage counseling with a hippie therapist. This book succeeds because of the warmth and empathy it extends to its characters. Armie, the therapist, is both funny and perceptive. Dominic is a type of character I don’t often read about in a romantic context, one who struggles with toxic masculinity but also has positive traits and wants to do right by his wife. He was raised by a quiet man who demonstrated that the way to show love for one’s family is to provide, so Dominic focuses on providing at the cost of communicating with Rosie…
