I’ve written about authors who write for the Harlequin American Romance line and so I have recently won a contest where I won two autographed books by one of my favorite Harlequin American Romance authors. I love to read the Harlequin American Romance line of books and Kara Lennox is one of the authors that I love reading from that line of books. I love her books even though I’ve only be able to read and buy a couple of her most recent releases. I picked out two of her older out of print novels because they sounded interesting and I’ve never had the opportunity to read them.
Today I’ll be reviewing The Forgotten Cowboy the first autographed book I picked out by Kara Lennox. I picked it out because the blurb on her website really captured my attention and once I started reading it I knew I made the right choice. The heroine Willow Marsden has recently been in a near fatal car accident that gives her a form of amnesia that prevents her from recognizing faces. That is a very hard thing for Willow because she is only a few weeks from going of to medical school and her amnesia for remembering faces is not something she wants right now because it can ruin her chances at becoming a doctor. Now her former high school boyfriend Cal Chandler comes back into her life and she can’t even remember his face even though she figures out that the new man in her life is Cal.
They have a very rocky relationship and even though they separated from each other on very bad terms they haven’t stopped loving each other. I loved reading this novel because it is a bit different from her newer novels and it shows me how Kara has grown as a writer in a very positive way. Some of the books are probably out of print except for her most recent release, so you’ll probably going to have to search used book stores if you want to find the books in this series. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
THE FORGOTTEN COWBOY $ 4.99 (250 Pages)
After a near-fatal car accident, Willow Marsden discovers she has a form of amnesia that prevents her from recognizing faces, including those of friends, family—even her own. Adding to her shock is that the new man in her life is none other than her former high school boyfriend, Cal Chandler, whom she blames for derailing her young dreams….
But soon they find themselves wrapped up in each other’s lives again and Willow’s heart has trouble remember all the reasons she and Cal split in the first place. Because their new—and more mature—relationship is giving them a second chance at a once-in-a-lifetime love.
