Valerie Bowman is a go to author for me. I love this author's mind and the tales she weaves are gripping and entertaining. THE UNFORGETTABLE HERO, a novella in the Playful Brides series is no exception to Ms. Bowman's lively repertoire of romance.
Miss Cecilia Harcourt has been her younger sister's caregiver since their parents untimely passing. They both are under the thumb of their unlikeable Aunt and Uncle, who have plans for Cecilia to marry their disagreeable son, Percy. An aspiring author, Cecilia plans to be an independant woman and take her sister out of their uncle's clutches by selling her novel. But Cecilia's plans go awry when she is almost run over by an out of control carriage. She is saved from her demise by handsome Lieutenant Adam Hunt, who quickly takes over and takes the unconcious woman to the safety of his family home.
Younger son, Adam Hunt has been away in service to the crown, but when his brother sees him discharged from the military and hopefully out of danger's way, Adam is disgruntled and eager to find his own way without his brother the duke's influence. Saving the mysterious woman in effect puts a stop to his plans, when the confused lady awakens and believes he is someone he is not. When the doctor tells him and his family to play along with her convoluted tales of her identity, the mystery thickens. What is he supposed to do with this woman who believes that Adam is her betrothed? Discovering "Lady Magnolia's" true identity is a very interesting path that should not be missed.
