Mistake She Made by Linda Style

Time heals all wounds—Tori Amhearst knows this firsthand. Ever since that awful event all those years ago, she's made the most of her life, her career. But the moment she discovers that the man she put behind bars is innocent, she knows she has to make it right. And how could she not? Thanks to her, Lincoln Crusoe has nothing. Not even his memory.

Now memory controls both their lives. Tori can't forget and Lincoln can't remember. While she knows she's got to tell him the truth, every part of her resists. She never expected to love him and doesn't want to lose him. Because the truth won't set her free—it'll just send him running.

In Arizona Artist Tori Amhearst is stunned when DNA proved Linc Crusoe is not the man who raped her. She is appalled as her testimony put him behind bars where he stayed for a decade. To make matters worse, just before he is to be freed, he is badly injured in a prison assault that rushed him to Scottsdale Trauma Center for emergency treatment; when he regains consciousness from the medically induced coma, he suffers from amnesia. His only visitor is Tori who feels strongly she owes him for her wrongful accusation. He fails to recognize her so she explains she is a friend from college. As she falls in love with him, she knows she owes him the truth, but fears once aware of who she is he will rightfully end their relationship. She also knows he probably will regain his memory or someone will recognize her and tell him who she is. THE MISTAKE SHE MADE is a fabulous romance starring a heroine who knows she cannot take back her error but wants to do whatever she can to make it easier on her victim. Linc is simplified by his condition, but the tormented Tori more than makes up for it with her anguish. The story line has a neat twist involving what really happened and a condemnation of states quick to convict with while ignoring DNA evidence as is Linc's case (until another criminal offered additional information). Fans will relish this second chance at life between the accuser and the accused. Harriet Klausner

Review by Sharlet Liebel © 2009 Hope, Trust, forgiveness - characteristics of lovers in a growing relationship. What if emotions are tainted with guilt, regret, and remorse by new partners? Such is the Harlequin story by Linda Style, THE MISTAKE SHE MADE, nominated by Romantic Times for the Best SuperRomance of the Year! Tragedy happens almost as soon as vindication in prison for a crime that Linc Crusoe never committed. Impossible as it seems, Linc spends years in a tinderbox prison where hoods take-up residence and murder their cellmates. Daily journals of his innocence are ripped away by Snake who instigates and lands treacherous punches with the guard watching. Instead of freedom, Crusoe is traumatized and when he finally becomes conscious his memory is gone. A lovely blond-haired Tori Amhearst appears to be his sole visitor in the hospital as he comes out of his coma. Tori has learned that Linc Crusoe's DNA tests prove him innocent against evidence gathered at his trial where he was convicted of her rape 10-years ago. The news is unbearable because she identified him as her assailant. How can she forgive herself and the mistake she made? Linc becomes attached to Tori as she continues her hospital visits. Soon, they learn he might be released. But without friends or money this presents both a problem and need for a solution. Tori offers to help him get started; after all, he's in a wheelchair and can't work. He's reluctant. Prideful. Finally, Tori sets-up a convoluted temporary plan to help Linc. It might work and Tori, as yet, had not told Linc about their connection. This causes her total anxiety. There is mystery and a secret past between Tori and Lincoln Crusoe that was interrupted during their high school days. In fact, Tori's best friend Serena and she share other secrets that will develop into new suspense. Tori and Linc's new attraction becomes new love for both. Delicate, gentle, and romantic scenes touch a deep yearning for this couple so that readers feel the passion of their romance during an unexpected outing. As luck would have it, Linc is picked-up for a crime linked to a different investigation. Lincoln Crusoe is again in jail. This is so alarming because he has an alibi. He's been with Tori. However, it is all too soon that Linc learns of Tori's cover-up and a break-up ensues. New fears for Tori emerge to destroy her peace since the real rapist is still loose. Prepare for the twists and turns that develop in an emotionally charged ending.
