historical books with First name titles

Post by vjwaatti » Mon August 20th, 2012, 6:38 pm

Hi everybody, I am new. My name is Vicki. I am rom the Upper penninsula of Michigan and YES we have long winters here! So I get in a lot of time to read. When I was a teenager (20 years ago) I remember reading a series of books (very thick paperback books) and they were historical fiction romance. Each one had a (I am pretty sure ) a woman's First name as the title. I remember one being named Nicole and it was set in prairie times in the U.S. If I could find these books again I would be so happy. I do have a kindle and can get books from free sites and amazon. But I do love holding a good book in my hand especially in the bathtub and in the winter.

Thanks all! :D Vicki W.

Hi Vicki- welcome to the forum!

If you read these when you were younger, it could be the Scholastic Sunfire series that you're thinking of. There's a list here you can check out to see if they tally up with what you remember:
