I am trying to find two books that I have read and would like to read again. I cannot remember the names or authors of the books. Thank you for your help! Book #1 This book is an older book probably '80s and I believe a Harlequin book because it was just a small paperback. What I remember from the plot is the H and h were step-siblings but were not biologically related. The H seduces the h when she was a teenager but before they could have sex something happened and the parents found out. The H was he sent away or left because he knew the h was too young to be in a serious relationship. Fast forward a few years and the h contacts the H because either the father or both parents have died and there is some financial problems. The parents have two younger children I think they are teenagers. The H makes the stipulation that he will financially support the family but in exchange the h must marry him. I remember there is a scene where the H is outlining what the two children must do to get their allowance and the h protests because they have never had to do that before. The H says that is because the kids are spoiled and while the h privately agrees she still argues. The H and the h get married and go on a short honeymoon. I don't remember what happens next but I do remember at the end of the book they are getting ready to go to a wedding and through the discussion realize that they love each other. I think that they miss the wedding because they end up in bed. And that is all I remember. Book #2 This book is a Harlequin Presents book that was written in the 90s. The H meets the h when she is introduced as a fiancee to one of his employees. The H blackmails the h into spending time with him at his house (I think in Italy or Greece). While there the H and h start a relationship. Some things happen I don't remember and then that h runs away. A few weeks later the H finds her at a night club and takes her away. The h finds out that she is pregnant and the H and h get married. At the H's house the h finds an abandoned dog and takes it home. I think she named the dog Mutt. One day when the h was walking the dog during a storm she almost gets run over by a jealous ex-girlfriend of the H. She sprains/breaks her ankle and cannot walk. The dog starts barking and lets a search party know where the two are. The H picks up the h and takes her back to the house. While walking the H calls the h his love and she thinks she is hearing things because she doesn't believe that the H loves her. I think that the h was a former model and that her name was Flora and that is all I remember. Thanks for your help!

Book 1 sounds like a Diana Palmer book maybe.
