It took me so long to write this review that I forgot about it. However, I really need to be a good girl so I’m going back and doing my reviewing duties!!!!

The characters

At the beginning of this book, we have Georgia and “Robinson”. Robinson is not really Robinson, he is in fact Roderick Gideon Tremayne, heir to the Duke of Wentworth. However, at the beginning of the book, Robinson is suffering amnesia due to a head injury so he does not remember his name, his identity or much of anything except characters from books he‘s enjoyed and loved (I‘m guessing if I got bonked in the head, I‘d probably end up living out some of my favorite books as well). Georgia, a widower from the rough streets of New York, takes in Robinson/Roderick, feeling guilt for the way he acquired his injury.

I loved Georgia and Robinson. I am going to call Roderick his amnesia given name because when he was Robinson, he was such a likeable character. He was so innocent-like but also protective and such a gentleman to not only Georgia but to all the women in the neighborhood. Georgia was sassy, strong, and had a heart of gold. She was very protective and would not let anyone take advantage of the people she cared about.

The story

The story involved the interactions between Georgia and Robinson, and once Robinson became Roderick, between Georgia and Roderick. It involved how the differences in class, country and culture can cause misunderstandings, bitterness, and anger.

Once Roderick was Roderick, I didn’t think the book was as good. It became just another historical I-don’t-belong-to-your-class type of story. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t as good. I still enjoyed the characters but felt let down overall. I didn’t know how the author could have made it better, I just wanted it different. It does have your happy ending, I just wanted a different happy ending.

3.5 out of 5 stars.

Vinaya Haha, it's crazy how many romance novels use the amnesia thing as a plot device! I'm in a very list-making mood today, so when I saw your status, I was totally like, I should make a list of my favorite amnesia-driven romances! But the sad part is, I can remember the plotlines almost perfectly, but all the book titles are escaping me! :(

Maybe it's a touch of amnesia making you forget!. ;)
