All day today I've been racking my brain in a vain attempt to remember this one book and its title. The book was once a favorite of mine, but years ago I stuck it in a box or put it on a shelf...and now that I have this desire to read it again, I can't find it! I don't even recall what the title is. I would really like to read this book again, so I'm asking anyone who might know what this book is to help me out.
This is what I know: The book was a Silhouette. Perhaps a Special Edition or an Intimate Moments. But, I could be wrong on that. Anyway, in the beginning, the heroine has a brief affair with the hero and she winds up pregnant. For some reason which I can't recall, she leaves without telling the hero that she's pregnant. Er, or perhaps it was she didn't know at the time. Either way, she leaves and returns to the small town in which she lived. Her uncle still lives there, and although he's disappointed for the circumstances in which the heroine has returned, he nonetheless welcomes her with open arms.
Other facts I remember is that the hero's name is Justin, and the son the heroine bore has the middle name Justin as well. Also, in the beginning of the story, when they met again after some years, Justin has amnesia, and for some reason has this urge to visit the town that the heroine lives in. When he arrives, he goes into the shop or store or something like that in which the heroine is. Naturally, the heroine is shocked, but Justin, not remembering her, introduces himself, etc, etc.
Anyway, that's as much of the book as I can remember. If anyone can tell me the title and/or author of this book, I would appreciate it.
Hmmmmm, seems like I have read something like this recently, or at least put one like tihs on my shopping list from another book sleuth post somewhere. Let me see what I can find in my Byron database.
Here is the one I remember, though the hero name is different than what you remember:
Sinclair's Surprise Baby by Barbara McCauley, SD1402:
That book sort of sounds like it, but it's not the same one. I know the child in the story was a boy. In fact, last night, right before I went to bed, a couple of facts finally materialized in the brain.
I'm pretty sure the child's name was Nicholas Justin. Nicky for short. And the town that the heroine returned to was something like Haven, or Haven Springs. Other little facts jumped out at me too, like the fact that the child had long fingers, even through the baby pudginess. The hero, Justin, was also very susceptible to catching illness.
I'm going to continue my search. Maybe I'll be lucky and I'll find my copy tucked somewhere in my bedroom.
Ok.....this was the closest I can find.....if not let me know the time frame you think the book came out and the age of the son please. Thanks!
