Excerpt, THE INNOCENT’S FORGOTTEN WEDDING by Lynne Graham
Early the following morning, alarm bells rang and lights flashed from the machinery by the bed.
The woman came awake and went into panic, eyes focusing on an unfamiliar room and then on the ar-
rival of two nurses, their faces both concerned and excited at the same time. She clawed at the breath-
ing tube in her throat because she couldn’t speak and the women tried to both restrain and soothe her,
telling her over and over again that the doc-tor was coming, everything would be all right and that there
was nothing to worry about. She thought they were crazy. Her body wouldn’t move. She could only
move one hand and her arm felt as if it didn’t belong to her. How could she possibly have nothing to
worry about? Why were they talking nonsense? Did they think she was stupid?
The panic kept on clawing at her, even after the doctor arrived and the breathing tube was re-
moved. He kept on asking her questions, questions she couldn’t answer until she couldn’t hide from the
truth any longer. She didn’t know who she was. What was her name? She didn’t know why she was lying
in a hospital bed. She didn’t have a last memory to offer because her mind was a blank, a complete
blank. It was a ridiculous relief to receive an approving nod when she evidently got the name of the
Prime Minister right and contrived to name colours correctly.
‘What happened to me?’ she whispered brokenly, her breath rasping. ‘Have I been ill?’
‘You were in an accident.’ The doctor paused there, exchanging a glance with the staff surround-
ing the bed.
‘What’s my name?’ she asked shakily.
‘Your name is Brooke… Brooke Tassini.’ The name meant absolutely nothing to her, didn’t even
sound slightly familiar.
‘Your husband will be here very soon.’ Brooke’s eyes widened to their fullest extent in shock. ‘I
have a husband?’
For some reason, the nurses smiled. ‘Oh, yes, you have a husband.’
‘A very handsome husband,’ one of the women added.
Brooke stared down at her bare wedding fin-ger. She was married. Oh, my goodness, she was
married. Did she have children? she asked. No…no children as far as they knew, they said, and a tinge of
relief threaded through the panic she was only just holding at bay. Then she felt guilty about that sense
of relief. She liked children, didn’t she? But it was scary enough to have a husband she didn’t
remember—it would be simply appalling if she had contrived to forget her children as well.
Would I recommend it? Yes
Will I read more by this author? Yes
First off I want to thank Harlequin for the invite to read and review it , its the first time I've read anything by this author and i finished it in a day and half , couldn't stop reading once I started it because it remind me some what of the old harlequin romance that my grandmother use to read and the ones that got me into read romance. Another thing I loved about the story was it made you wounder ( at least it did me) which of the women actually made it from the car crash.So if you love books like this pick up a copy and read it for yourself.Another i want to say is thanks to NetGalley for aslso letting me read it .
