Her past was behind her...or so she'd thought.

Bethany Acton has come a long way from the day she was an abused child-bride of a dissolute jet setter. Now divorced and single, she writes for a lifestyles magazine, lives out of her motor home, and answers only to her boss-when he can find her. She has overcome her horrendous past and taken control of her own life. But when Jonathan Merritt, a rising star in wildlife photography, enters her world, she learns that control is a tenuous thing.

His past was despicable, but it hasn't affected his future...until now.

Jonathan knows he has met the woman with whom he wants to spend his future, but first he must admit his role in her past. Afraid the truth will turn her against him, he tries to gain her trust and affection before confessing. But the longer he hesitates, the harder it becomes to tell her. Can Jonathan gain enough of her love and trust for her to forgive what he did-or will his past indiscretions destroy his only chance for happiness?

This is a very well written story about a young woman that was abused by her now ex-husband and how she takes control of her life. She meets a man that turns her world upside down but can she let him into her world or will she shut him out? I highly recommend this book and any other books by this author.

This is a fantastic romance novel! Bethany Acton is a very strong character. She is a survivor. She is feisty and independent. Having made a new life as a journalist, she wasn't expecting her life to change all over again. Jonathan Merritt is arrogant, egotistical and downright irresistible! He also has a very loving heart, which he tries to hide under his gruff exterior, but shows through his photographs.  These characters are very similar in that they have both got skeletons in their closets. They are also protecting their fragile hearts. This is a very hard review to do without spoilers! Therefore, to avoid temptation, I will say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I have read many romances over the years, but this book was very well written, and I could "see" the scenes as they unfolded. I completely enjoyed the "slow seduction", but the bedroom scenes were extremely HOT. Although not too explicit, the heat had me fanning myself! Told from both Bethany and Jonathan's points of view, this story is full of warmth and wit. The epilogue had me chuckling! Mona Karel has written a fantastic romance that made me laugh and cry. I would definitely consider reading more of her books in the future. Due to the scenes of a sensual nature, I do not recommend this for younger readers. However, I recommend this book if you love romance novels. - Lynn Worton

Teach Me to Forget by Mona Karel is a story about forgiving and overcoming one's wounded past, with the story taking place primarily between a journalist and a wildlife photographer, in the context of a romance. The plot of the novel is very good and the story is strong, with the characters often taking on a life of their own. However, the dialog between characters needs to be more flowing and elaborated, while an adequate introduction to the story is missing. Given my understanding that this novel is a sequel to Karel's My Killer My Love, Teach Me to Forget would have benefited from a prologue for those readers who, like me, had not read the previous novel. A contents page is also missing, which does not facilitate returning to chapters at one's pleasure. Overall, Teach Me to Forget was a fairly good novel which can become great, with some needed technical changes
