Through some unusual circumstances, Mariah finds a man who is near death. He has washed up on the beach and appears to have been in the water for a very long time. When he is conscious and admits he has no memory of his name or his past. Mariah tells him he is her husband and his name is Adam.
In reality, the man is a wealthy duke. When friends find him, after sharing their stories of the past brings very few reminders for Adam, he is basically still an amnesiac.
Adam is told that the accident which created the ship sinking and his being thrown into the sea was no accident. Someone created the explosion on purpose.
Mariah and Adam are interesting characters. They both had childhoods which were anything but normal. Mariah lived a life of wandering around the country with her gambler father. Adam was emotionally abused because his father was married to an Indian woman and that made Adam different from what the English public were willing to accept. Both of them are intelligent people who share a strong sense of empathy for their fellow creatures.
Adam is a very heroic hero.
The secondary characters add a great deal to the story. Adam's friends are willing to do nearly anything to protect him. Each of them are colorful and are introduced in a manner that makes me believe they will appear in the Lost Lords series. They convince Adam to return to London to move back into his life and responsibilities. Even very minor characters are created to add texture to the fabric of the story.
The plot starts out wonderfully. I am a fan of Ms Putney's writings. This is a well developed story, but it becomes too busy toward the end. Some of the events are improbable even for a romance novel. There is mystery, there are attempts at murder and all in all a great deal of action.
I like this book, and I am well aware that I will fall under Ms Putney's spell with her next book that I read.
The heroine finds the hero floating near the shore and hauls him in. He has lost his mistress memory, and as she is being pestered by a suspicious fellow, she claims the hero is her husband. She keeps the hero at arm's length saying they need to get to know each other again, though not in the biblical sense - yet.
In the meantime the hero's buddies are trying to find the hero's body. They understood he was killed in an explosion. Once they find him it is time to get him back to London and his responsibilities -- he is a duke after all.
But the couple has fallen in love, even though the heroine confessed that they weren't married and told him he whole story. She has led a rather ramshackle life -- her father was a card player. The hero insists they are engaged and has her go to London with him.
Well- meaning and not so well-meaning relatives show up, and some attempts are made on the couple's lives.
