Can a headstrong beauty ever learn to love the rake she despises?
Helena Fitzhugh understands perfectly well that she would be ruined should her secret love affair be discovered. But when a rendezvous goes wrong and she is about to be caught in the act, it is only with the greatest reluctance that she accepts help from David Hillsborough, Viscount Hastings, and announces that they have eloped.
Helena has despised David since they were children - the notorious rake has tormented her all her life. David, on the other hand, has always loved Helena. His pride, however, will never let him admit the secrets of his heart.
A carriage accident the day after their 'elopement', however, robs Helena of her memory. The slate is wiped clean. At last David dares to bare his love and she finds him both fascinating and desirable. But what will happen when her memory returns and she realizes she has fallen for a man she has sworn never to trust?

English is Sherry's second language - she has come a long way from the days when she made her laborious way through Rosemary Roger's SWEET SAVAGE LOVE with an English-Chinese dictionary. She enjoys digging down to the emotional core of stories. And when she is not writing, she thinks about the zen and zaniness of her profession, plays computer games with her sons, and reads as many fabulous books as she can find.
