I'm going to the book store this weekend and was wanting to see if anyone knows any books with these storylines.
*Plus Size woman getting the guy
*Revenge (dating someone to get back at them for something or get info.)
*Woman falls in love with teacher ( I'm talking about when she is in college. Or In high school, but she is like a senior and there close to the same age. Or She has a crush on him in high school and years later they start dating)
*Fighting books (Books like Lori Foster's fighters books.)
*Maid falls in love with her client (The woman is hired to clean his house and cook for him)
*Poor woman/man falls in love with rich woman/man
Susan Donovan's He Loves Lucy comes to mind for the Plus Size woman, but she looses the weight for him, which puts in right in the realm of fiction. It was cute book.

I second "Bet Me" for the plus size - it was one of my favorites ever!
For rich/poor, Lisa Kleypas also wrote Sugar Daddy - it is first in a series of so far 3, but it is a good series!
I vote for Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie for the Plus Size story too. I just finished it and loved it!
Also just finished The Penniless Bride by Nicola Cornick (Poor Woman/Rich Man). I liked it too.
Reading now... Deceived by Nicola Cornick (Revenge story). It's good so far...
