This is Lynsay Sands at her most entertaining in a non stop mystery/romance. It’s also very funny thanks to hero Aulay’s large family who hang around commenting on his love life. When Aulay and his brother rescue Jetta from a shipwreck, she hints that her family want her dead before lapsing into unconsciousness. After Jetta finally comes around she has no memory. Besotted Aulay calls her Jetta because of her beautiful black hair. Jetta also seems besotted by Aulay. Ignoring his scarred face she assumes he is her husband because he is so caring.
Lynsay Sand’s novels always have many convenient head injuries. Highlander’s Promise may break the record. Poor Jetta has her head bashed in so many times she could be a rugby player. That said, this is a very sweet romance. Aulay is rejected by his fiancée after getting his face slashed badly, so is naturally pretty depressed when he rescues Jetta. The blossoming relationship between them is touching, and funny as Jetta tries to do wifely things to a man who is not really her husband. The mystery is good too, not an afterthought as in most HR. Jetta has brief memories but not enough to know who is she or why she is afraid of her family. The clues add up chapter by chapter until the final reveal. Recommended reading.
