My Amazon review - I have read other books by Stuart that I really liked - "Glass Houses" is a particular favorite - but this one was too dark for me. I like Stuart's writing style, and the first third or so of the book is wonderful. It is about how Danny and Katharine first fell in love, and I really did believe that he loved her. Which is what made me dislike the rest of the story. I was nearly as distraught as Katharine to realize that the man who supposedly loved her so much was able to make himself forget her completely for a decade, to the point that he no longer even recognized her. That's not only unbelievable to me, it is also unromantic. Mac was able to convince Katharine that he had re-fallen for her, but Stuart didn't convince me. I will avoid any more of her books that have a time gap/reunion theme, because this was not a fun read for me.

Katharine is a girl with the perfect job, the perfect features, the perfect perfectionist - who is engaged to the perfect man, and if all this is a little boring - well, that's exactly the way she wants it. Her heart was broken once before, ten years ago, and she never wants to go through that experience again - and if a little lack of excitement is the price to pay, so be it. Except that the man she once thought dead is suddenly very much alive ... and he seems to have totally forgotten her existence. Suddenly, Katharine's heretofore drab but predictable life is turned upside down, and she suddenly realizes that while she doesn't like the twist her life just took, it's also impossible to go back, to the way she was before all this happened. She can't anymore turn back into predictable, punctual, hard-working, boring Katharine.

Published in 1991; an early Anne Stuart. A bad boy and a very good girl as only she can write it.
