Description from amazon.com:

Laura Fairleigh needs a husband. If she is to keep a roof over her siblings’ heads, the prim rector’s daughter must wed by her twenty-first birthday. When she finds a mysterious stranger with the face of an angel and the body of Adonis unconscious in the forest and with no memory of his name or his past, she decides to claim him for her own. Little does she know that her fallen angel is really the devil in disguise.

Sterling Harlow, the notorious rakehell known as the “Devil of Devonbrooke,” awakens to the enchanting kiss of a lovely young woman who informs him he is her long-lost betrothed. With her sun-kissed cheeks and smattering of freckles, she looks every inch the innocent, but her curves possess a woman’s allure. When she assures him he is the perfect gentleman, he wonders if he’s lost his wits as well as his memory. He would have sworn he was not a man to be satisfied with mere kisses—especially from lips as sweet and luscious as Laura’s.As he attempts to uncover the truth before their wedding night, A Kiss To Remember ignites a passion neither of them will ever be able to forget….

**

An older Medeiros offering this was a good read with a few reservations.  I did enjoy the amnesia plot.  I thought it well done and rather believable.  The motives of the two protagonists were entirely understandable and delivered with Teresa Medeiros’ well crafted prose.  It got to be a bit over the top after the marriage and the yourng sister’s, Lottie, efforts at murder were not at all cute or funny.  She should have been locked up.  But that aside we are presented with a scrumptious hero, and a heroine who is taking advantage of a possibility dropped in her lap, or rather, in her forest.  She awakens the hero with a kiss that seals his fate.  How deliciously romantic!

Now for more deliciousness nothing beats a kiss , sound on please:

  1. I have to admit that I haven’t read Teresa Medeiros’s earlier books. I have some recommended ones on my wish list. My love of her books started from reading Yours Until Dawn a few years ago.
