Another Treasury book and another classic trope - marriage of convenience - and one that is done very well by Jacqueline Baird.

There is a lot of reality to this story, such as the heroine regretting her mistake of sleeping with her ex and the difficulties two people face learning to live with one another, and that makes this an enjoyable book to read.

The heroine is nicely independent as well as a but prickly - for the most part I liked her.

The star of the show here though is the hero... right fo

A marriage of Jacqueline Baird. She certainly has a way of letting you know just how the hero feels. I was a little disconcerted on this one, because the bickering, and misunderstandings seemed to go on and on...Too much was getting rehashed.

Love this type of romance where the hero falls in love first and falls hard. It's a keeping it in the family romance where the h is the "baby mama" of the hero's brother.

hmm... ceritanya agak pendek ya? kalo lebih panjang lg lebih bagus
Not a fan of the amnesia plot and hero's raising the son of his brother.
Thisis a book by Jacqueline Baird to AVOID for me :S She is one of my favorite romance authors and I LOVE many books by her, but this book doesn't work for me.
There is a disgusting bed scene between the heroine, hero's brother and the hero :/ the dialogue in that scene is :S
The heroine sleep with hero's brother then, she loses the memory then she thinks/believes she has always been in love with the hero!! :S

I HATE that plo
Fairly decent unrequited love/amnesia story.

Saat amnesia, Josie menganggap kasih sayang yang diterima dari suaminya sangat wajar. Tanpa mengetahui bahwa sebenarnya pernikahan mereka saat hanya rekayasa karena ayah dari anaknya yang sebenarnya telah meninggal. Namun Conan, suami Josie, yang juga adik kandung dari ayah anak yang dikandungnya, ternyata benar-benar mencintai Josie. Dan akhirnya mereka berusaha untuk menjadikan pernikahan mereka pernikahan yang sesungguhnya.
