Willing to remain with him until she recovers, Lierin soon finds generous comfort in Ashton's care. Though her memories remain elusive, she and Ashton forge a relationship of deep passion and love. Then Malcolm Sinclair arrives and claims that Lierin is actually his wife Lenore, Lierin's twin sister. Lierin must admit that she has memories of Malcolm, though Ashton vows to never lose her again. Tensions flare between the men, and the growing danger seems frighteningly familiar to her. Will Lierin and Ashton be able to uncover the secrets of the past in time to secure a future together?
First published in 1983, Come Love a Stranger has remained a favorite among Woodiwiss fans for good reasons. Set in the South in the 1830s and dappled with well-formed characters, this book is fresh and entertaining on every page. Touches such as a burning madhouse, a melodramatic ex-girlfriend, and a deliciously malevolent villain make for a great read. --Nancy R.E.

Fast forward to three years and we see Ashton in a carriage on his way home to Belle Chene. Deep in thoughts, he is startled by the sound of a woman's scream. Thrown off her horse, Ashton immediately jumps out to her rescue and takes the unconscious woman to the safety of his home. But when moonlight frames her face, he is shocked for right in his very arms is the face of the woman who has haunted his dreams for the last three years - his beloved wife Lierin. Unfortunately, the woman wakes up with no memory whatsoever of her past or identity. But in his heart, Ashton knows that she is Lierin. And when fate once again threatens to tear them apart when Malcolm Sinclair turns up and claim her as his abducted wife Lenore, Ashton vows to fight for her no matter what.
What follows is a series of confusion and heartbreak for Ashton and Lierin. Although Ashton's heart tells him that the woman is his dear wife, mounting evidence seem to prove that the woman is indeed Lenore, Lierin's twin sister. For her, as much as it pains her to leave the kind and gentle stranger who has managed to convince her that she is Lierin and whom she has fallen in love with, she knows that she must uncover the truth about herself and whom she's really married to.Read more ›
Bloody Hell.. Where was the DNA testing Lab
Okay with that said I loved this book....It starts off with Ashton and Lierin on a steamer boat heading home to Mississippi from New Orleans after there marriage vows are said .. Then in the still of night pirates steal aboard the River Witch and start a ruckus Lierin is thrown over board Ashton is shot .....three years later an accident occurs and Ashton `s carriage collides with a cloaked rider Immediately Ashton is taken back .Are his eyes playing tricks on him or is it his longing for his dead beloved wife that makes him see Lierin laying in his arms?
Got to love an Amnesia plot This book is filled to the brink with mystery Is it Lierin or her twin sister Lenore? I was back and forth with this same question on every other page.
Ashton deserves a medal for his hero-ness he was a determined and devoted husband always never faltering . Lierin as well deserves a medal for her strength and sheer will to find her life again and the love that these to share is worth the fight
I just have to throw this out there Mr. Horace Titch reminded me a little bit of The Mayor of Munchkin City just the way KEW wrote him I guess but none the less funny to me
Got to love the little hussy Marelda with her fierce tongue . When Malcolm Sinclair comes into the story your first thought is "no it can't be" you don't want it to be but it is.....or is it? A lot of plot twists and turns can't go to much into detail don't want to spoil the read for anyone.
I loved the ending but would of liked to at least have another chapter into the lives of Ashton and his beloved Lierin
Anyways read the book it is worth the time
