ONE OF LIBRARY JOURNAL'S BEST ROMANCES OF THE YEAR

In this new masterpiece of historical romance from the acclaimed, USA Today bestselling Sherry Thomas,
a headstrong beauty is rescued by the notorious rake she has always despised...

Helena Fitzhugh understands perfectly well that she would be ruined should her secret love affair be discovered. So when a rendezvous goes wrong and she is about to be caught in the act, it is with the greatest reluctance that she accepts help from David Hillsborough, Viscount Hastings, and elopes with him to save her reputation. Helena has despised David since they were children—the notorious rake has tormented her all her life. David, on the other hand, has always loved Helena, but his pride will never let him admit the secrets of his heart.
A carriage accident the day after their elopement, however, robs Helena of her memory—the slate is wiped clean. At last David dares to reveal his love, and she finds him both fascinating and desirable. But what will happen when her memory returns and she realizes she has fallen for a man she has sworn never to trust?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The final installment in Thomas's Fitzhugh trilogy (after Ravishing the Heiress) provides a sizzling series conclusion as romance ignites between an independent businesswoman and a nobleman. Helena Fitzhugh, sister of an earl, is a college-educated 19th-century English-woman who owns a publishing company. David Hillsborough, Viscount Hastings, has loved Helena since their childhood; he proves it by interrupting a tryst between Helena and her lover, Andrew Martin, right before Martin's wife shows up, but Helena is none too pleased that the rescue involves Hastings kissing her just as the door bursts open. Hastings's suggestion of a rushed marriage is derailed when Helena is hit by a carriage and suffers amnesia, but he relishes the chance to convince her of his love before she remembers that she hates him and his acerbic wisecracks. Helena's self-possessed intelligence makes her a standout heroine, and Thomas has an exquisite ability to transport the reader into the outstanding story. Agent: Kristin Nelson, Nelson Literary Agency. (Oct.)
Library Journal
Hopelessly enamored of a married man, publisher Helena Fitzhugh has successfully hidden their affair—until a vicious gossip (the sister-in-law of the man in the equation) lays a trap for the pair that backfires with unintended consequences for everyone concerned. A quick-thinking rescue saves Helena's reputation but plunges her into a faux marriage with her childhood nemesis, David Hillsborough, Viscount Hastings. When a carriage accident robs Helena of her memory, the story takes an unexpected but ultimately rewarding turn. VERDICT Characters who rise from the pages, sensuality that takes readers to a delectable, erotic edge, and lush, mesmerizing language give the classic amnesia plot refreshing new life and result in another off-the-charts winner for Thomas. The hero's "smutty love letter," The Bride of Larkspear, plays a central role in this romance and is available in its entirety as an ebook. Thomas (Ravishing the Heiress) lives in Austin, TX.

    I can perhaps understand the negative comments if this book were

    I can perhaps understand the negative comments if this book were read only as a standalone.   I read the books in the trilogy about the Great Beauty and her younger brother and sister one after the other: Beguiling the Beauty, Ravishing the Heiress and then Tempting the Bride.  By the time I reached this, the third book, the basis of the relationship between Helena and Hastings was understandable and their situation both humorous and heartfelt.   In fact, in each book, the author gives insight into the characters and the stories have more emotional depth than the typical historical romance.  I found the trilogy to be exceptional, with each subsequent book building on the foundation established in the others.  I loved them all, and Sherry Thomas is one of my "must read" authors.

    Not that great or even good

    I really enjoyed two of the other books in the series, so i bought this one thinking the author would weave her magical plots, and boy was i disappointed. First off, there is nothing likeable about Helena. What a stupid woman for constantly pursuing a married man. I coukd not get past that. There was nothing believeable about her change in character to warrant the ending, either. And because she was so stupid and self righteous, i could not believe why Hastings loved her...other than being obessed (bordering on stalking).
    So, i would say save your money, and do not buy this book.
    They cant all be five stars!

    Oh my! I was dying to read Helena and David's story the moment I read their first encounter. So fiery and naughty! The book did not disappoint even with taking a turn I didn't see coming. A wonderful story of hope, and second changes and a whole a lot of passion. Loved it!

    Not a worthwhile read

    Sorry. The characters had no charm nor redeeming qualities
    Not particularly entertaining or memorable. Plodding storyline. Don't bother.

    Definitely NOT "a masterpiece of historical romance"! A long, boring story told in a pedantic prose.
    Dont waste your time and money!

    Do yourself a favor and read this book!

    I read this book in one sitting with my heart in my throat. The characters were beautiful, and flawed. This is a poignant love story.
