Stranger in her bed

Capri recognized the handsome man in front of her as her husband. She knew his name was Rolfe, but other than that he was a complete stranger to her. In fact, she could remember nothing at all about her life, prior to waking up in the hospital bed. Perhaps all she needed was to get home to New Zealand and her memory would return.

It didn't, despite some s

4 1/2 Stars ~ The book cover synopsis gives a very good summary of the plot for this wonderful romance by Ms. Clair. I adore amnesia stories and when they are as well written as this one, it's an experience of delight of a special treat.

The heroine wakes in the hospital as Capri with her stranger husband, Rolfe, at her bedside. His face is familiar but everything else of her life has been erased. She senses a deep conflict in her husband, and wonders what sort of marriage they had had. Rolfe is

**spoiler alert**

I dint quite expect to like this one at all but it was not so bad actually. Long lost twin sisters, amnesia, sister swap n sloppy seconds doesn’t sound like a recipe for a happy reading. But I surprised myself by first deciding to read it and then liking it. The plot becomes quite apparent early on but what keeps you hooked is wondering how things are going to be resolved and whether the H’s love for the h would be believable.

The wife, after a fight with the H, had left for Aus

I bought this book from the treasury line ages ago and forgot about it! I have liked the few books I have read from this author so I thought I would give this one a go.

I have noticed that a lot of the Presents from the 90s are the amnesia trope. Yes ok, they are clichéd and a bit weak as believable stories, but I admit that I quite like them!

This one was enjoyable, very much so. The author captured my interest with a wonderfully played out story with glimpses into a very troubled past relation

SPOILER ALERT!!!!

Before her amnesia, the heroine was known as a slutty, selfish, desperate and lazy wife, so it was totally obvious that this was a case of mistaken identity

And it became apparent that this had to be a twin situation, so the only mystery was how it all happened

It got to be pretty interesting, but if I were the heroine, I would never ever be able to be with the hero because it's just icky for to the dude to go from loving one twin to the other and go from being married to each of

My favorite usage of the amnesia trope is as a reset button. Protagonist (usually the heroine—I don’t think I’ve read one about a hero) was insufferable and awful and selfish person that everyone hated. She wakes up in a hospital bed and doesn’t know who she is and a man claiming to be her husband is there and he’s super-cold to her and thinks she’s faking and says something like, “I tire of these games, Claudette. If I find out you’re faking this, I’ll strangle you to death.” The heroine leaves ...more

A good read.
Capri survives a train accident only to have amnesia. Her husband Rolfe takes her home, she slowly starts to realize something is wrong with their marriage. She hopes to remember and Rolfe hopes to forget. Both are drawn to each other by a undeniable passion. Once her memory comes back it will expose a secret that could destroy their love.
I think the author did a wonderful job working in the helpless passion that they feel along with the heartache and frustration of her amnesia.
