Synopsis:

A CHOICE BETWEEN REDEMPTION AND LOVE

In secret, Julie Fitz marries to protect her herself and her fortune from her unscrupulous uncle. After exchanging Gretna vows with a blackguard in order to avoid her uncle’s even less savory plans for her, Julie returns to the pleasent life she’s built for herself as companion to lovable old Lady Griselda.

But then the unpredictable spinster takes in a man who can’t remember anything including the accident that claimed his memory. The clues suggest that “Christopher,” as he names himself, is most likely a gentleman, so why hasn’t his disappearence been reported in the newspapers? Surely, someone as dear, as intelligent, and as handsome as he would be missed!

Certain people know very well who “Christopher” really is, but they aren’t telling. And Julie is too distracted with other matters to harbor suspicions.

She must stop Lady Griselda from using a ridiculous Gypsy charm to decide who she should wed. The old dear has invited a dozen of her most ardent admirers for a house party, and Julie has her hands full trying to steer Lady Griselda in the right direction during the house party, while managing an entire houseful of aging servants at the same time.

Chris admires Julie’s kindness, compassion, and capability, and as he recovers, he helps her as best he can. He’s falling in love. Yet he knows he must discover who he really is before he can pursue her. Especially since he begins to suspect that he’s not worthy of anyone’s heart or hand—especially Julie’s.

    a charming tale!

    amnesia is one of my favorite plotlines, and it's easy to do wrong, but this story handled the subject well. I did have a hard time believing that this story could end as well as it did, in such a neat bow, but that's what romances are for, I guess! I will be buying the others in the series!

    Villain Becomes a Hero... A villain becomes a hero??? Yes, yes, yes!!!

    The hero of this book was the most despicable villain in Melynda Beth Andrews's last book. I didnt think the author could pull it off. But she does! This hero is wonderful. The author introduces a cast of unique and highly lovable characters here. I hope she writes more using them.

    A heartwarming story

    I loved this story of love and redemption. The main characters were great and I loved all the secondary, older characters. What a fun book this was to read.
