Richard and Annie were in love since they were children but shortly after their wedding tragedy strikes and he dies in a terrible accident. But his soul doesn't actually die, only his memories. He's taken over to an alternate universe and turned into the best "White Knight" and has dedicated his life to banishing the world of evil. His next and most important battle is to save an unborn child who has the power to change the world.
Ren (as he's now called) has fought evil for centuries but only eight months has passed on earth. Annie, alone and eight months pregnant, has been attempting to hide her grief for the sake of her family and has been sort of sleepwalking through life waiting for Richard to come back to her. One stormy night her dreams come true when he arrives just in time to save her life. But although this man looks, speaks, and acts just like her husband he insists his name is Ren and that he is only there to protect her unborn child from evil. Annie refuses to believe this and insists that he has just lost his memory. And eventually bits and pieces of Ren's previous life with Annie do come back to him and he falls in love with her all over again but because of vows he's taken to the "Light Side" he can't stay and refuses to break her shattered heart again. So he doesn't reveal that he's her Richard and tries to concentrate on keeping her and their baby safe.
This is a moving paranormal love story with a standard plot of good versus evil. Although the heroine's grief is heart-breaking and the couple's rediscovery of their lost love is touching and done very well the paranormal plot was extremely predictable and the villain was obvious from the beginning. Annie's Hero is a very good book but I've read others by her that are far more original.
