3.75 stars...maybe 4? Can't decide...

So I decided to pick this one up because I was in desperate need of a HR fix. I got it! I really enjoyed this story and its characters. MacLean and Enid were great characters.

I love how funny and strong Enid was. She's been through so much and had to keep her guard up. She is called to care for her dying husband who abandoned her and was just pure mean.

Her husband seems to have had a full personality swap and is a gentle yet authoritative warrior. His love

Model cover mirip Chelsea Olivia ???

Pilih edisi yang ini karena covernya bagus dan belum ada edisi terjemahannya di GR, tapi selain itu pertama kali baca sekitar 1/4 jalan cerita, kok mirip dengan salah satu novel (view spoiler) well... tapi gak apa2 aku tetep suka dan kasih bintang 5.

Suka karena :
1. Alur cerita pas, no slow spot.
2. Karakter hero & heroin kuat, walaupun heroin sempat pesimis.
3. Sensualitas, gak usah dipertanyakan lagi, hot.

There are lots of eye opening things in this book. I had no idea that the severely wound and sick were treated so poorly. I have to wonder when keeping the sickroom clean and bright and fresh came to be the standard instead of the exception. I had also had not thought about how one fed those that were unconscious and unable to drink. I will have to search for when IV’s came into practice. I am sure that was the turning point for saving people that died from being unable to eat or drink. There is ...more

Another interesting and awesome book by Christina Dodd! As usual, she didn't fail in keeping me so totally engrossed until I forgot to have my dinner.

Enid is really such an endearing and compelling character. I admire how she is still able to stay strong through her short miserable marriage with Stephen Maclean. And how she still held her head high after the nine years separation with her late husband. She picks up a nursing trait during their separation and before she knew it, she is working a

This was a very enjoyable read, well on its way to 4 stars, until the very end. Which makes reviewing the book for perspective readers difficult, but I'll do my best to explain my experience without spoilers.

Enid hasn't seen her husband in over 8 years, not since he abandoned her because she was a chain around his neck, when all of a sudden she receives word that he has been nearly mortally wounded and needs her help. She goes to him, somewhat reluctantly, but the nurse in her takes over when s

Caregiver who's been estranged from gambler & wastrel husband for 8 yrs is asked to help her injured & scarred husband recuperate from bomb explosion. She cautiously agrees and is clear about her goal of going back to her work once he recuperates. But she finds herself surprisingly drawn to this changed husband who's suffering from amnesia but still in danger from the bomb culprit.

As usual, reading Dodd's book was a pleasure. I was emotionally pulled into the characters & romance ri

Third time through. The Governess Bride series is a good one. Romance, intrigue (spies), strong characters, and this one complete with a gorgeous man wearing a kilt. The identify of the traitors from the previous story (In My Wildest Dreams) are revealed but not caught in this episode. This is a story of amnesia and it is one of my favorites of that sub-genre because even though Enid eventually realizes the man she's been nursing back to health is not her husband she keeps the fact from him to a ...more

2.5. Eh,nothing really special about this book. I liked the characters fine, but the plot was a bit boring for me.

Very entertaining. I would have given it another star but i felt this plot has been done too many times.
Genieve Ong
I never thought a book with a promising plot would stab and betray me! You know like a fool you feel so excited, giddy and wonderful then suddenly you want to cry because of the deception you have felt? That's how I feel right now, I wasted time reading until page 90 the story is too good and you wanted to take a peek at the middle and then you realize some things wrong? Curious and a bit of need of clarification from an unwelcome, undesirable suspicion you peek at the last chapter and Poop, you ...more

Ecco, dopo la delusione del quarto, finalmente la Dodd è ritornata alla grande, con un romanzo avvincente, con due personaggi graffianti e con grandi scene di passione.

Già l’inizio è promettente, con la Governante di turno che racconta bugie su bugie sul suo lontano matrimonio a un gruppetto di cameriere ingenue e sognatrici. Poi la Governante è riportata alla realtà, perché chiamata a curare un corpo fasciato e sfigurato che dovrebbe corrispondere proprio a quel lontano marito perduto… Da qui è

This is one of my fave Christina Dodd books. She really excels in historical romance and I prefer her writing style in these novels than in her contemporary ones. The story is timeless, I read this the second time around and still found myself anticipating what happens next, enjoying Enid and MacLean's banter, and their passionate love scenes. The plot is well thought of, the added mystery is a classic touch and the results are surprising indeed. I loved everything about this book, the character ...more

Excellent book. I loved both characters they were so well written. The story flowed along very well and never stalled. The H was an alpha male but he knew when to be gentle and kind and show his emotions. The h was tormented by a past but she didnt dwell on it and it didnt make her weak. All the secondary characters were wonderful as well. I loved Kiernan's mother, Lady Bess, she was a hoot!

This book was fantastic. I opened it to see what it is about, and realized from the very first page that I already have read it, but I couldn't stop and ended reading it again.

The story is so hooking, so compelling and funny. There are surprises at each corner, there is romance and love, enough to make it cute but not too sweet your teeth fall.

It's fast, it has a lot of action and is like a river that goes on and on with turns and falls and then there is a beautiful cascade and then more river a

Enid MacLean is finally at peace with herself and her life when her husband, the man she hoped never to lay eyes on again, is wounded in an explosion and she has to nurse him back to health.

Unfortunately, he's forgotten everything. Grateful for his wife's presence, he reaches out to her, seducing her anew, rekindling her love... and his.

Despite her reservations, Enid give in to the temptation, but things are seldom what they seem.


Another wonderful historical romance by Christina Dodd. At first

This book has all the plot devices I usually hate....amnesia, estranged spouses, a main character who is an invalid for part of the book, an orphaned main character, and there are a couple more. However, all of these devices are woven together into a great story. I found it witty, with a strong hero and heroine, and a strong "supporting cast". While the story was rich and entertaining, it was also a quick read. It gets four stars because I was very satisfied with the ending, and how the hero &am ...more

Once again, I was so disappointed with how poor the translation was. True, it was not censored, but it was awfully confusing. I couldn't bear reading it any longer, and even if I was, it would ended up me disliking the book even though it should be the poor translation was to blame. Hence, I gave up reading the translation, and would read the english version instead. Just not sure when, since I have other books on my hand.

I loved "Lost in Your Arms". Overall, Christina Dodd always creates strong characters with sharp tongues. And this is not just a historical romance, there is also a mystery. This book has the second chance theme with a twist, though predictable, quite delicious. The romantic scenes were very intense and there is no doubt as to the existence of sparks between the couple.
The only criticism I have to make is in relation to the end, the last few pages. Personally I didn't like that much. But otherw

I have gotten to the point where I try to recognize in each of Ms. Dodd's historicals where her inspiration came from, but this one slipped by me. I don't recognize any of the characters or any of the plot. Although it unfortunately uses the much-abused amnesia plot device, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The timing was exquisite and Enid MacLean a wonderfully depicted character. I found very little to fault - except that, given the times and her character, I think Enid would have succeeded in f ...more

this one the best books ive read from this author, the twist in the middle about the identity of the main charecter stunned me .. i actually re-read the chapter twice before droving in deeper into the book wanting to find out more .. i was really happy when i found out the truth about the "real" husband in the end .. made me not hate him as much as i did in the beginning of the book

dont miss this one .. you will not regret it
