He never forgave his mother for letting him go and refused to read any of the hundreds of letters she sent him until her death.
Laura was his mother’s ward and could never understand how could a man be so cold as to blame his mother for what happened and never have given her a chance to explain herself.
When she learns that he is coming to claim her home and to send her and her siblings to the workhouse she decides to take fate in her own hands.
In fairytale style, when Laura asks God for a man to love and cherish (and to allow her to inherit her home according to her guardian’s will) she finds a man unconscious in the woods and decided to claim him for her own.
I was not a huge fan of this specific part of the plot (I wish the author had made do without the amnesia and the lies), but it had a fun flair, and it did not disrupt too much the good story beneath.
Laura receives a letter from Sterling Harlow, the "Devil of Devonbrooke", who tells her that he's going to cast her and her sisters out of his home after his mother dies and will find someone for Laura to marry. Laura is worried that he will send her sisters to the workhouse, so when she finds a man on the side of the rode who lost his memory from a head injury, she decides to lie and tell him that he's her fiance, because if Laura gets married before her 21st birthday she will inherit the house and her sisters will be safe. The man she found on the side of the street, though, turns out to be Sterling, and he goes along with whatever Laura tells him for awhile but as they spend more time together he begins to care for her. If and when he gets his memory back, will he be able to forgive Laura's deception?
I recently picked up one of Teresa Medeiros's novels and fell in love with her stories and writing style, and now I seem to be purchasing every one of her books that I can find. A Kiss To Remember is a take on the popular memory loss storyline, but she does it in a way that makes the story unique and exciting to read. I loved Laura and Sterling together and enjoyed seeing them fall in love, and I also enjoyed seeing the consequences that Laura had to deal with from lying to Sterling.
I would recommend A Kiss To Remember to anyone looking for a well-written historical romance novel with a memory loss theme.
It wasn`t just the two main characters who turned silly. The children turned into something that was probably meant as comedy relief but was anything but. And the cook and her husband ended up as sort-of part of the family - not very likely in the time period this book takes place in.
And this is another problem with the book and something that adds to the silliness. They all walked and talked like they lived today. A young girl of 8 (?) was allowed to stay up and attend a ball. Yeah right! And the husband dances with his wife all evening. Uh huh.
It was really too bad because the beginning of this book had promise. Unfortunately it seems the author wanted to give readers everything she thinks readers want - but none of it fit this story.
I picked up Whisper of Roses and have been a fan ever since. As of late, she has turned her attention to faerytale. Face it, the little girl in all of us weened on Prince Charming will enjoy these fresh look at old tales.
She revisits Sleeping Beauty, but in this big girls tales, it's Prince Baby who is sleeping or more to the case Duke Baby.
Laura Fairleigh an orphan, was raised by a kind benefactress (aka Faery Godmother) who leaves her Arden Manor when she dies.
Only one problem, in order to hang on to the Manor she must marry before she hits that kiss of death the Big 21st Birthday. She only has three weeks, so she prays for a man to be sent to her to save her from losing the house - and her prayers are answered - sort of.
The man who comes, is the one she fears most (though she does not know this). He is Sterling Harlow, a roguish estranged son of Laura's benefactress known as the Devil Duke of Devonbrooke. He has come to kick the gooddigger out of "his" home and reclaim it, but he suffers a fall from a horse and is knocked out.
Laura is getting desperate at this point, so when her kiss awakens him, she convinces him they are betrothed, hoping she can get him to the alter before the three weeks are up.
It's a sweet and sexy tale that is just the perfect bedtime story for all grown up lasses!!

The book is split into two parts, and unlike other memory lost stories it doesn't focus completely on the main hero losing his memory and become stupidly unbelievable. Rather the story flows and develops, with the characters evolving and compromising throughout.
You should buy this book, particularly if you like authors such as Julia Quinn and Eloisa James as I believe it is a similar style and sense of humour which, for me is a must have in books. I have found a new author, and will definitely be buying her books in the future!
