Lost in Your Arms is loosely connected to the Governess Brides series (The organisation helps Enid MacLean, the heroin to find her latest position as a nurse companiion) but this book can deffinatly stand on its on. Enid has been married for nine years to a scoundral who seduced her at seventeen, then abandoned her three months later to fend for herself, and pay off the debts he had accumulated. Now, nine years later she is summoned to take care of her husband after he has been injured by a bomb blast in the Crimea. (This book is set during the Victorian era) So, relucctantly, she leaves her charge behind, an elderly, somewhat cantankerous lady, and goes off to nurse her husband back to health.
MacLean though, isn't quite the way she remembered him. He wakes up with amnesia, that he only slowly recoves from. He doesn't like to think that he was a gambler, or that he abandoned his wife. This MacLean is also quite definately attracted to his wife, a feeling which his wife against her better judgement and her own memories, shares. When a fire is started in the cottage which Enid and MacLean are using until he is back up on his feet, forces them to leave, they must try to dodge the people who are trying to kill him.
This is quite an intruiging novel, with a fast moving plot line, and wonderful characters. Enid's distrust of men in general provides an almost insurmountable barrier for MacLean to climb over. Deffinately worth your time.
