I have tried the Romance readers forum without success so I'm broadening my request.

Several years ago I read a Historical Romance that started out with a young woman falling through a thatch roof and getting stuck.A knight was arriving that had been granted her lands from the king.  I don't remember anything else about it.  Has anyone out there read this book?

What was the publication date (at leaswst what decade)? I'm assuming this was set in England? Can you remember if the author was male or female?

Was it any of Catherine Coutler's books like Fire Song or Warrior Song, Earth Song?

A Knight in Shing Armor or The Taming by Jude Deveraux?

Defy Not the Heart by Johanna Lindsey?

I wish I could remeber the name of this book. I've read it as well. It seems like the heroine was a red head. The man she fell in love with had an enemy that stalked him and the heroine ended up killing the enemy. Or maybe all the storylines are beginnning to cross in my mind. I'll keep thinking.

What's the setting? When (decade) was it published? Theme?  Plot?  Was the author male or female? I can't search anymore without more information.

April  Thanks for the suggestions I looked them all up and Coulters Earth Song is a possible. 

Melodie have you remembered anything else??  Has anyone read Coulters Earth Song to confirm before I order it. 

Thank you both for trying.  I assume female author, England or Scotland,  but other then that I remember her stuck in the roof.

I am going to say late nineties for publication.

Sounds like something Kathleen Woodiwiss might have written.  Sorry I'm not more help.  Good luck!

Hi!

 

If you go Amazon.com, you can read a section of Earth Song to make sure it is the book you are looking for.  Here is the link for you

Good luck in finding your book!

I don't think I've ever read Earth Song so I don't think that's it. I have read all of Woodweiss but that was a long time ago. I'll keep trying to remeber more.

I really want to thank all of you for your help in trying to find this book!

Earth Song was a NO but a good try!

I'm glad you have at least read it Melodie - I was beginning to think I imagined it!

Melodie, do you think Hellion by Betrice Small could be it?

It sounds possible but thought you might remember the names as you seem to remember more of the plot than I do.
