Book Description

New contemporary romance by the author of the bestselling romance "Always"

When Delanie Carlyle wakes in the hospital after a car accident, she discovers she cannot remember the past month of her life…and to her dismay, she’s newly pregnant. With no husband or lover in her life, she must take care of her child alone and then an elderly friend dies and she must deal with the complications presented by a large, unexpected inheritance.

Eighteen months later, Mitchell Riese meets again the woman who has stolen half his inheritance. Delanie knew who Mitchell was when she fell into conversation with the dark, handsome tycoon at a cocktail party celebrating the re-opening of his grandfather’s historic resort. She has supervised the restoration of the massive turn-of-the-century hotel and, in the process, has earned the fond affection of the irascible, elderly Donovan Riese.

Mischievously, Delanie parries Mitchell’s attempts to learn her name. But somewhere between the casual conversation and the sparkling champagne, she falls instantaneously, head-over-heels in love with Donovan Riese’s sexy grandson. After a night of glorious passion, she wakes and slips away from his bed, still awash in the glow of finally having found her soul mate.

At breakfast later that morning, Delanie waits with teasing expectancy when Donovan introduces her to his grandson, Mitchell. When the man she thought was her hero viciously attacks her for supposedly taking advantage of his grandfather, Delanie runs away, only to crash her car in her distress and wake up...having forgotten with whom she made a baby.

Editorial Reviews


"Wow is all I can really say...I guess the complexity of the book and the hmmmm factor made me fall in love. The author kept me wanting to turn the page and find out what would happen next. Yes, there were parts that were predictable but the rest..was just interesting. I will be reading more of the authors books. I love the characters in the book and I also wish that I could read more about the Cedar's. Is there a long lost family member or someone who we can learn about. Can we see Jenna's story? I just absolutely loved this book!"~5 Star Amazon Review by Iforgot2tellya

From the Author

Long before I started writing romance, I was a romance reader. I grew up reading Anne Stuart and Jayne Ann Krentz and enjoyed be drawn into the adventures and the challenges facing brave heroines and bold heroes as they find love.

While I love rereading old favorites, I particularly enjoy exploring books by new and newly-discovered romance authors, too. I love the work of Kristan Higgins, Jill Shalvis, Meg Cabot and Rachel Gibson and they provided me with lot of inspiration when I was a novice romance writer.

These days there doesn't seem to be enough time to read, write and work my full time job as a psychotherapist, but I am trying! Currently, I am writing a romantic series about three brothers who run an architectural salvage company.

And in the mean time, I found a new cover for my book Race The Darkness, an intense, sexy story of Kinkade Holbert who races motorcycles like dying doesn't scare him.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh... December 2, 2011

This book did not do it for me. The hero seemed like a judgemental sleaze ball with a "my way or the highway" lean. He made assumptions about the heroine without consulting anyone or even common sense, everything like that should have been verifiable. And he's supposed to be a successful business man? And the heroine is a doormat to let him off the hook like that once she figures it all out. Left me shaking my head.

1.0 out of 5 stars Predictable and characters were terrible December 9, 2011

I know romance writers want to give us a happy ending but do they have to give us the SAME old romance story time and again? I can't recommend this. Woman falls in love at first sight. She never even gave the man her name & she's supposed to be in love. Seriously? The reunite 18 months later. She has amnesia. He detests her because he believes she is a money hungry schemer who has stolen his inheritance and was his grandfather's mistress. They spend the next several months falling for each other.

Now here is where I have a problem. The author says the male lead distrusts all women. His mother sold him to his father so he doesn't think women can be trusted and feels all women are only interested in money. Every thought he has is how to manipulate the situation so he can get what he wants. Even when he appears to be comforting the female lead over the death of her father he's secretly thinking about how to use the information to his advantage. He distrusts all women and he constantly feels the female lead is lying to him. He thinks she is trying to get money out of him or get something from him. Even the female lead says he is "unlovable." The author does not give him any redeeming qualities unless you consider being good looking and a good lover redeeming qualities. I don't feel those qualities kept him from being a horrible human being.

So I didn't WANT the female lead to be with this man. At the end of the book he suddenly realized he'd been wrong about her and wanted to turn his life around? No. The author established that the father damaged this character. His first girlfriend damaged him. He's been bitter and angry his whole life. I'm sorry to be a realist but it doesn't happen this way.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time June 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoy reading independent authors because discovering a really good new author is such a great surprise. When I read independent authors, sometimes I find grammatical mistakes, spelling errors, word choice problems. All of those are very fixable and if I really like the story, the characters, the chemistry, I'll shoot the author an e-mail and tell him/her about it so they can fix it. I won't do that with this book.

Forgotten Father by Carol Rose has an interesting premise, but I disliked this book intensely, mostly because the hero is a misogynistic a$$hole. I read the book on my iPhone and there were so many times I wanted to throw my phone up against the wall when I read Mitchell talk about how all women are money-grubbing whores. The author had the good sense to not actually use that word in the text, but it's strongly suggested on more than one occasion. I'm getting mad again just writing about it. He had no redeeming qualities whatsoever and did not deserve the heroine at all. I grumbled "idiot" to myself about him as I read it probably 30 times.

Delanie wasn't the best heroine either. She was just OK. I recognize the author was attempting to make her a multi-faceted character, but she came off as a bit like a person who has multiple personality disorder might be portrayed. It seemed incongruous that she was a smooth-talking situation smoother and then not be able to verbally defend herself. The resolution was too-pat and too fast. I realize people can have aha! moments and change, but given the depth of Mitchell's hatred of women, it was not well-done at all.

I should also add that one of my least favorite storylines is The Misunderstanding.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid escapism romance December 24, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The basis of this romance is rather interesting. Delanie Carlyle falls in love with Mitchell Riese, the grandson of her client, Donovan Riese. They have a night of passion without Delanie telling Mitchell who she is. The next day, Delanie finds out that Mitchell had come to the reception to denounce this gold digger who had gotten her hooks into his grandfather, and he rejects her horribly. She has an extreme dissociative episode and has an accident, losing about 6-8 weeks worth of her memory. Only problem is, she's pregnant and can't remember how it happened.

The romance is quite good, but the why's and how's are somewhat unsatisfactory. First of all, I have a problem with how completely Delanie could decide that Mitchell is "the one" and construct all of these fantasies of their future together in an instant. Then, for her to forget him so completely that it allows months of day-to-day interaction before her memories return. It makes an intriguing story, but is also indicative of a person with a highly fragile mental state. What'll happen when they have their first fight? And I fully expected there to be another employee who was embezzling and had made it look like Delanie was guilty. How could a successful businessman not add up all of the receipts and understand that all of the expenses were legitimate?

A good tale, but a few logic holes that bothered me personally. Most people probably would overlook these things.
