LAST TIME MARRIAGE COST HER HER HAPPINESS. THIS TIME LOVE COULD COST HER MORE.« less
I thought that this book was good. It has passion and some suspense within. The main female character is strong and admirable. The male character is domineering but becomes tame when he finds love. This story is from the late 1800's and is set in England and Scotland.
Tale of a Scot and his english wife reunited. Sort of. He has amnesia and it's actually his cousin's wife. Good read though. Have to love those Scots! He's an endearing hero. Enjoyed this one, I hadn't read this author in awhile.
The premise of this entire story, that a woman cannot recognize her husband, former lover was just not very believable. It would have been easier to believe her thinking that he's someone else the entire time, than her husband.
Book 5 of her Governess series, this is as amusing and engaging a tale of romance and intrigue as any Dodd has penned. Eight years ago, Enid MacLean was abandoned by her wastrel of a husband after 3 months of marriage. Now she is told they have found him, but he is dying and it is her duty to care for him. Against her will she goes, but finds herself mired in political intrigue when she is told her husband was spying for England and wounded in an explosion. He has lost his memory, and they need her to help him recover it for the information he possesses. Caring for him she realizes he has changed over the years and she unwillingly becomes attracted to him again. Dodd's strength is in her humor and characters, and this story is no exception. What I did find disappointing was the attempt at an outrageous and extravagant climax to the story, because while the book's buildup was entertaining enough, the resolution left much to be desired in its absurdity and attempt at a gimmick to make it different from the standard of the genre.
