Format: Mass Market Paperback
Alessandro feels drawn to Carys when he sees her photo in a brochure, although he doesn't remember their affair due to amnesia following an accident. When he discovers Carys has had his child, he strong-arms her into marrying him by threatening to get sole custody. Carys is a well developed character, but Alessandro is the typical Harlequin alpha male. His background story and motivations are clichéd: A past betrayal causes him to distrust Carys's loyalty. The reasons for Carys's problems in the relationship are more unique and interesting.

Despite the stock hero, the novel is enjoyable because the couple works out their issues in a (more or less) believable manner, and the wedding night sex scene is spicy. The novel is not without its bad lines, though--my favorite being, "Her skin tasted clean and sweet, like spring flowers made of flesh."

[SPOILER] I have a small problem with the plot: The author never explains why Alessandro didn't get any of the messages Carys left on his private number or the emails she sent regarding the baby. But this is a minor omission, and I think Harlequin fans will find the book quite satisfying.

A somewhat familiar story line, but told well. The hero has lost part of his memory, but is irresistably drawn to an ordinary girl snapped in a hotel brochure. He flies half way around the world to find this girl and discovers that he is also the father of a baby boy. As the story continues to unfold, he is disturbed to learn that their previous relationship had been closer than he had ever expected to have with anyone, or that he could believe his cynical self capable of. The heroine also has her own strengths and gets stronger as the story progresses.

This hero does almost everything right, and always acts with honour. A real keeper.

Wow! Great, great book!!! Alessandro and Carys were made for each other. A tragedy kept them apart and misunderstandings marred their reunion, but at the end of the day love triumphed. Annie West dealt sympathetically with the disability of dyslexia. I like it when a heroine isn't perfect. Our hero wasn't perfect either but also dealt with problems. His stemmed from trauma in his childhood. Apart they were both special people but together they were dynamite!! Read this book...you won't regret it!

Wow. I think I must have read a different book than the other reviewers.

The one I read was a very typical HP, with a Secret Baby/Amnesia plot - pages & pages of internal dialogue, amnesia that's only pertinent to the romance (in every other way, the hero has completely recovered and is Rich, Gorgeous, Arrogant, Successful...), a secret baby due to Misunderstandings, misunderstandings created by a Scheming Liar who both protagonists trust implicitly (but not each other).

In particular, I read a book with a different heroine. The one in my book was insecure and lacked self-esteem. She didn't think she was smart enough to fit in with her family, thin or pretty enough to keep the hero, or sophisticated enough to be part of his world. Definitely not a strong, confident woman. Spoiler: Not even strong enough to hire a lawyer to help her comprehend a pre-nup: she was too afraid someone would find out she was dyslexic. Why is that something to be ashamed of? It absolutely isn't.

The only thing that stood out in a good way for me was that a significant portion of the story is written from the Hero's perspective.

The book was mediocre, tedious but not unpleasant. Like slightly stale, plain white bread. I wish I hadn't spent the money or time on it, but oh well. 2.5 stars.

This was an a emotional, and endearing, heart tugging story. Alessandro was in a car wreck, and now suffers short term memory loss, or better known as amnesia. There are parts of his life that is like a black hole. He comes across a brochure, and has the strong feeling he knows the lady in one of the pictures. He is hoping she can help him fill in some of the missing parts of his lost memories. He travels to Australia.

Carys was Alessandro's lovers. He sent her away, and she hasn't heard anything from him since. She left his estate pregnant, and he had claimed the child she carried couldn't be his. Now she is a single mom, working long hours, and doing all she can do to support her little boy. She is so shocked to see Alessandro. Before he told her about the memory loss, he asked where the father was of her son. That earned him a slap across the face. So many emotions bubbling up from both Heroine, and Hero. Once he told her about his accident, and lack of memory, she did fill in some of the blank spaces in his lost memory. There was lack of trust on both parts, and they had to work together to earn each other's trust. The chemistry on the other hand still burned between the two like a wild fire.

Alessandro never regained his memory, but didn't feel lost anymore. He loved being a father, and he loved Carys. Sweet story.

Without a doubt one of the finest Harlequins I have ever read and there have been many thru the years. Heroine was a class act...beautiful, strong, courageous, and didn't take crap from others. Hero was a caring and protective man not to mention respectful of the heroine. Characters did not argue incessantly but worked together towards a sweet ending.
