Description from

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?


This is a funny, amnesia story with heroine Cecilia convinced that Adam is her fiancé and that he is a Duke.  Told to play along with her delusion by the doctor, Adam, his brother (the real duke), and his sister-in-law all do their humorous best to help Cecilia recover her memory.

A quick read, only 100 pages, this was a delightful way to spend an evening curled up by the fire.  Obviously Cecelia had a concussion when she was in the accident so it was a bit odd that she would go out to a ball the following night.  But I’m willing to suspend some disbelief because the story was so delightful.

  1. In the end I decided just to go along with how unbelievable the whole thing was. It wasn’t supposed to be a serious story, but really, I bet most patients with a serious head injury and amnesia wish theirs was as easy to cure as this heroine’s! 🙂
