Darwen and his friends, Rik and Alexandra, must journey to Costa Rica to save the world from a giant tentacled creature that leaves destruction in its wake. This time, old allies can't be trusted, and the danger runs deeper than Darwen could have ever imagined. The problem with doors is that they open both ways.

Island of Shadows Set in post-war Britain, this gripping novel is steeped in atmosphere and adventure - think Enid Blyton for older readers with lashings of creepiness in place of cream buns and ginger beer. Struggling to write a new novel, Millicent insists they head to the remote Scottish island of Inchtinn to find inspiration. When Noah encounters an otherworldly cave-dwelling girl, a sinister real-life mystery unfolds as Millicent struggles with her fictional Adventurers story.
Indeed, tensions between mother and son run high throughout, and are powerfully addressed in the thrilling final sequences when Noah must face his greatest fears. First published in , this cult classic has been reissued for a new generation of ghost-hunters. Ghost stories are as old as recorded history and exist all over the world; described in this book are haunting spirits, screaming skulls, phantom ships, demon dogs, white ladies, gallows ghosts and many more.
The trip turns out to be more exciting and more dangerous even than Sofia had expected, but it does enable her to make new friends, new decisions about her life, and to spread her own wings as diplomat and dealmaker. This can be read as a stand-alone but the series is an excellent one, clever, funny and with some great characters.

As I vaguely recall, the cover had flower petals and a mouth on it, if that helps. Sorry, I think I initially posted this in the wrong place: I'm trying to find a series of books involving a black-haired catholic heroine marrying an autocratic hero.
The setting is coastal, historical US. Their book involves the heroine having twins, a hurricane, and hiding on an island near the family plantation. I remember two other books in the series although I think that there were more. One of the twin daughters wants to join a convent, but the father is outraged and sends her to marry a distant relative in Brazil. She ends up married to an invalid and is involved with the invalid's brother.

Hello, everyone, I'm a newbie to this group and website but I've also been trying to find a romance novel I read when I was a teenager. I think it was published in the late 80's or early 90's. I don't remember either the title or author but somewhat the premise. I'm so sorry if it's sketchy but here goes: the book is a historical romance novel that takes place in either Oregon or Washington in the late 19th century.

In fact no one at the castle is happy about the H's presence -I think I remember the h has been running the castle by herself for a while now-though I may be getting that from another book. I read this book years ago. I really hope someone can help! I seem to run across that book everytime I try to search for this book!
The heroine was a nurse in the civil war and was a year later down on her luck. She answers an add for a wife and meets the man she thinks she will be marrying. Turns out to not be him, but his brother, whom she instantly dislikes. Hope this helps, but I have seen quite a few books with a discription close to this. There are some websites that allow you to search by historical era or location. Good Luck!

Can't think of the title. Years ago I started reading this book and got interrupted and was never able to finish it. It's been driving me nuts through the years! I believe it was a Harlequin. The woman is a surgeon who was working too hard and I believe collapsed and was forced to take a vacation. She is staying in this house and the next door neighbor's dog comes over.
She is mistaken for a teenager and is hired by her neighbor as a housekeeper or assistant? She pretends to be a teenager and the neighbor is conflicted because he is attracted to her. It was not a harlequin romance. The hero was an actor. He comes to the Heroine's grandmother's island to shoot a pirate film. The heroine works in the perfume industry. She calls her boss "Madame".
Her sister lives on the island and makes glass designs.
