SOMETIMES, WHAT THE MIND CAN'T REMEMBER. . .
Awakening in a hospital, Jarred Bryant has no recollection of the plane crash that nearly killed him. At first, all that remains familiar is the beautiful woman at his bedside: Kelsey-his soon to be ex-wife. Then come the fleeting, fragmented visions-terrifying visions that hint at a conspiracy involving those closest to Jarred. Are they shards of a paranoid imagination. . .or true memories of a hunted man?
. . .THE HEART REFUSES TO FORGET
Struggling to grasp the shadowy images that flutter just beyond his consciousness, Jared clings to a marriage that feels hopelessly shattered. Yet, mingling with the anger and regret in Kelsey's eyes, he glimpses a faint glimmer of passion that even the looming divorce hasn't extinguished. When a harrowing near-miss convinces Jarred that both their lives really are in danger, he knows he must somehow win back the trust of the woman he loved so passionately-and seems to have betrayed-in his still-elusive past. . .

THIS STORY WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER IF THE AUTHOR SIMPLIFIED THE STORY BY CUTTING OUT SOME OF THE RAMBLING WITH TOO MANY SIDE ISSUES. IT IS STILL WORTH READING WITH SOME GOOD CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT.
In Seattle¿s Bryant Park Hospital, Jarred Bryant begins to regain consciousness after lying in a coma for a few days. Jared was injured when his Portland-bound small plane crashed into the Columbia River. His passenger Chance Rowden died in the accident. When he awakens, Jarred realizes his memory is shot to hell, but he immediately recognizes his wife Kelsey. However, he is stunned to learn they are estranged as she moved out of their house three years ago. Jarred cannot remember the accident. The police inform him tat it was sabotage because someone tampered with the fuel line. Jarred¿s half-brother tells him that a company insider has revealed their bids so that their main rival has won all the construction jobs. Will feels it is Kelsey who works for the competitor. In spite of Will¿s theory, all Jarred wants is Kelsey back in his life and will do anything to regain Kelsey¿s trust because he wants his wife at his side forever. Ill he let Will¿s doubts spoil his chance to win back the woman he loves. NOT WITHOUT YOU is an entertaining relationship romantic intrigue that will furnish pleasure to fans of contemporary drama. The story line¿s uses of amnesia might be a trite cliché but the trick works due to the dysfunctional relationships between several of the key charcaters. The suspense elements have several angles to them that adds tension to the plot. The lead couple is insecure and not trusting of one another which led to their previous problems and leaves readers wondering throughout the whole story whether this time around they will make it. Janelle Taylor writes an interesting romantic suspense novel that shows why she is one of the romance genre¿s most popular romance readers. Harriet Klausner
