A woman without a past...

After a tragic accident left her with no memory, Kate Alexander struggled to fit in with a husband and world that didn't feel right. She's had no reason to question what friends and family have told her, not until her husband is suddenly killed and she finds a photo of a young girl in his office. A girl who can't be anyone but a daughter Kate didn't know she had.

A man desperate for a reason to live...

Ryan Harrison lost his wife in a plane crash five years ago. To cope with the pain of her loss, he dedicated himself to his job and to raising their daughter. Now a successful pharmaceutical executive, Ryan has everything a man could want--money, fame and power--but he'd give it all up in a heartbeat for just one more day with the woman he still loves.

Two lives about to converge.

As Kate begins to dig into a past she doesn't remember, evidence leads her to San Francisco and puts her on the path toward Ryan, a man who sees in her the woman he loved and lost. Kate feels a draw to Ryan, one she can't explain, but is that feeling enough to convince her this is where she's supposed to be? As Ryan and Kate search for answers, they uncover lies long buried, a passion hotter than either expected and a danger that threatens...even now...when the second chance they've both been searching for is finally within reach.

An Incredible Story!  I couldn't put it down! I grabbed this books when it was FREE and then I went out and bought the paperback because I loved it that much! Wait For Me, a romantic suspense drama, written by Elisabeth Naughton, is one of the best novels I have read in a long time.   It has a lot of twists, turns, deception and drama on every page, a lot of romance, and just enough sexy moments to keep the story rolling.  I enjoyed every second I spent reading this story.   Kate Alexander leads a good life with a decent man and a loving, 4 year old son.  Although she can’t put her finger on it, she always  feels something is just not right.  Brain damage from a car accident has left her with no memory so she chalks her strange feelings to this.  She depends on her husband, Jake, to fill in the blanks and keep her tuned in to life.  But when he dies in a plane crash, she realizes she has to fill in the blanks now on her own.  Going through Jake’s papers, she finds information that doesn’t make sense, photos that seem familiar but not quite and decides to delve further into her past to see what she can find out.   But Kate never expects to find out what she does and this sends her on a roller coaster ride she never expected to be on.  She finds people she never knew were in her life and realizes she is in the middle of a pharmaceutical coverup that has destroyed many people’s  lives.  Will it now destroy her life?  Will she be able to fit her life back together again?    Not until the very last page do we get an answer  to these questions.  Definitely a big 5 stars and I hope a second book will be coming soon

A memory loss story with several twists and turns that keeps you turning the pages as fast as you can. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was recommended to me by several friends, and for some reason I just kept putting it off. The stress of losing her memory added to the stress of losing her husband, only to find out that she actually has a living husband AND daughter. A lesser woman would have caved under the intense pressure. I fell in love immediately with her and her family. I loved how Ryan tried to give in to her need to be Kate, but his need for her to be Annie, so he blended their name and called her Katie. I enjoyed the banter between Kate's brother and Ryan, and the secondary romance between the brother and Simone was fun as well. The children were written perfectly, I could actually picture Julia rolling her eyes. A wonderfully refreshing romance. A must read in my mind.

Good story all 657 pages for 99 cents! WOW! This book was so enjoyable so much twist and turns some mystery and humour with Mitch and Simone. The romance and passion between Ryan and Kate was so encouraging.

I found the main character's "issues" and concerns annoying and the premise a bit of a stretch.

This story holds your attention and keeps you on the edge of knowing the truth but not quite being able to figure it all out. Couldn't hardly put the book down. Will be looking for more books from this author for sure.

I read this book two years ago and loved it. This second time around, loved it even more. There is something special about Naughton's novels that makes them stand out among other books in the genre. She writes superbly, the story always has a solid plot, and she builds complete characters that fit the story like a glove. The romance is full of passion and sincerity and it is very relatable. These are truly heros and heroines and their love stories are always genuine and never exaggerated. She knows how to cratf tasteful sex scenes that complement the story rather than making the story about sex and only sex, as it is becoming the trend in most erotica romance books. A terrific read. I cannot recommend it enough.

Worth to purchase. It is a movie in a book. Drama, love so on.

Engrossing contemporary romance, suspense drama. Complicated, Gripping, emotional and tension building plot. Sparks fly between the two main characters- a beautiful, lntelligent, wife with a wry sense of humor who cannot remember her husband and an angry, smouldering, sexy husband who is heartrenderingly afraid to lose her again. Array of characters also come fully alive. Quality of story telling way above the usual.

Quite the romantic mystery. Strong characters. I caught the little hint early on, and a few story lines lacked detail, but it was a good read for the main characters. Could have left Mitch for book two, and provided more about the parents and police. That many bodies across states and countries! Where were the authorities?

Interesting premise, but looses momentum early on. Oh, well.

A very good read, just wish the intimate parts had a more erotic edge to it like the rest of the storyline did.

This was an enjoyable read. There were a few twists and turns throughout the book which made you want to keep reading. Give it a try.

This is erotica disguised as "suspense" --and it isn't good as either. The author is stuck on the same phrases so much you can predict them. This book might make a good drinking game (take a shot each time you read "eyes slid shut" and you'll be drunk in no time), but as a novel you should pass.

I am normally not a romance novel reader but the authors style of writing and her abilities to draw you in kept this in my hands 24/7, could not put it down! She seems to have a way to paint the picture while leaving you nail biting until the next page. Great writer and the story line, although simple, was extremely compelling and I'd say a must read!
