Publisher Description

To escape a forced marriage to her loathsome, social-climbing cousin, Cecelia Harcourt banks on selling a romantic novel. But when she's hit by a coach on the way home from meeting a potential publisher and loses her memory, the accident leads to an encounter with a fascinating man. . . who she’s convinced is the hero of her novel.

Due to his brother's influence, Lieutenant Adam Hunt finds himself honorably discharged from the army. Adam intends to make his way in the world without the help of a war-hero duke, brother or no. He finds his plans for independence sidetracked by a chance encounter with a lady whose memory has gone. She believes he's a hero. Can Adam become the man he was meant to be and fill that lofty role?

Sticky Love ,

She did it again!

Once again Valerie Bowman writes a fantastic book with incredible characters and a unique story line. The only fault you can find in it is that it ended too soon.

disappointed in the overall unfinished, first draft feel of the novella

Cecilia is looking for an out, not wanting to follow the plan for her marriage, she’s determined to sell her romance to a publisher, and thus be in a position to support herself. Adam was in the army until his brother, The Duke, used his influence to get him discharged. Wanting to make his own way without ties to the gentry, he now has to find his own path to independence.

While the intentions of the couple were clearly defined early on, the development of the characters did not come to fruition, and as a result the story felt unfinished. The meeting between Cecilia and Adam – her being in an accident and losing her memory, didn’t fit in a novella – the elements related to her memory loss were either over or under played, resulting in an unfinished feel.

I liked Adam, even as I felt I didn’t know him well at all: his intentions were obviously honorable and his attempts to move forward contrasted with the obligations he felt for Cecilia, even as those elements never quite felt completely fleshed out. While I can’t say that I hated the story, I was disappointed in the overall unfinished, first draft feel of the novella. There could, and should have been more development for this story, as none of the many elements contained in the pages ever got a fair shake at full development.

I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
