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

It liked it. I did feel like Carys was very insecure and that the Amnesia didn't quite add up. I think if it was explained better in the beginning it would have been easier to... Read morePublished on February 4, 2014 by Amazon Customer
