You Only Love Twice by Elizabeth Thornton

Bestselling author Elizabeth Thornton triumphs with this thrilling blend of sensuous historical romance and heart-stopping suspense.
For three years she’s been a mystery even to herself—a young woman who awoke in a London convent bereft of her memory. But now Jessica Hayword knows her name, her birthplace, and one other thing: By some terrifying twist of fate, she has the power to read another’s thoughts—the thoughts of a man who has killed and will kill again.

Convinced that she must unmask the murderer before it’s too late, Jessica goes home to Hawkshill Manor—and discovers that no one is happy about her return, especially the dangerously handsome earl Lucas Wilde. What kind of girl was she, Jessica wonders, to have earned such scorn? And whose murder is it that continues to haunt her? The deeper Jessica digs, the more scandalous details are revealed. Yet even as the clues point to Lucas as the killer, Jessica can’t keep herself away from his embrace. And now all she can do is pray that the man she’s falling in love with isn’t the man whose deadly voice she hears in her dreams.

I am not particularly fond of heavy suspense, action and/or mystery in my romance books. I prefer internal conflicts with lots of heart soaring twists. I prefer goose bumps alerts and heart squeezer twist. However, despite that personal preferences, from time to time, I do give historical-romance-mystery or those kinds of book a try because I've read quite a few in the past that have stirred up my emotions and I have actually enjoyed the overall story. I am happy to say that LOVE ONLY TWICE is one of those few novels. This is my first novel of Elizabeth Thornton and I am much interested to read more of her works. I like the complexity of the plot. There were many twist... few internal and lots of external ones which were all intriguing. I specially liked the way Ms. Thornton describe and portrayed her characters. Each and every one of them, even those extra-passing-characters were properly executed. Jessica is my favorite overall. Her character was represented beautifully, I think. I read books with heroine who lost their memories but this is the only book that have actually made me ache and feel for the heroine. I understood her confusions. I admire her strength, her courage and her determination. Must be awful not knowing who you are, where you come from and what's enstore for your future. Lucas is likable but not my favorite in this book. He is straight-forward, sexy, loving, honorable and patient. Their love story was alright. Some excitement, some passion and desires, few heart soaring moments and a little laugh here and there... But I couldn't say their's is FULL of love. I think the action-mystery overshadowed a tiny bit of their relationship development or perhaps it's just me and my preferences? The minimal inconsistencies in this book such as their language didn't bother me at all. Yes, I noticed it but it's not overly much as to distract me. Once again, I didn't think it's fair for me to rate this book less than 4 stars mainly because of my self preferences... Afterall, Love Only Twice is an exciting and an enjoyable read. It really all goes down to a matter of taste and preferences. If you like heavy action-mystery-suspense in your romance reading, then this book if definitely the one for u. For those who are picky and prefer more lovey-dovey scenes... hmmm, I do urge you to try this book anyway, who knows you might like it just as I have or perhaps even more...
