They say she's Cynthia Dempsey fiancée of media mogul Will Taylor But try as she might she can't recall their high society life or the man sitting by her hospital bed Though. I like the storyline with the amnesia and mistaken identitybut I did not liked the reaction of the hero upon finding out the truth about the heroine that she was not his fianceI wanted emotionremorse from him that would satisfy me that he realised his error of judgement but there was very little of ithe was mean and angry and would not listen to her explanationsthat really ruined the book for me and knocked 3 stars Heroine was kind and selfless and he just threw her out on the street without a care for her well being without any money and identity papers And then the end was too convincing for him just turn up and all is forgiven It does not work like that in my book Safe gang SafeNo OWsome drama with OM but he was the lover of a dead fiance of the Hero so nothing to do with heroineno mentioning of their sexual experiences apart from hero being with his fiance
