Semi-warning:  some in content racy sexual scenes


Can you ever really forget your love?

Okay all ready, we know I don’t really mix with straight romance; however, I can still be objective.  “Twice In One Lifetime” is a pretty decent romantic read…for me.  For all you romance readers I think you’ll love it.


Ms Otto’s story starts with a bang…literally.  Struan Cassidy knows the blonde woman at the other table is his missing wife, the wife who ran out on him and their son two years ago.  What he doesn’t know is she has no memory of him or their life.  That night long ago someone tried raping her and while running scared she lost their unborn child.


Now, back home will Rachel remember her husband and son and the man who attacked her or will she run again.


Yes, very harlequin-like.  Yes, very much not my normal mix.  However, I enjoyed Ms. Otto’s clear and precise writing.  I even liked the powerful semi-overbearing Straun Cassidy.  I even let out a cry when Rachel faced her forgotten son for the first time.  And, I couldn’t read fast enough to discover if I had guessed Rachel’s attacker correctly…I did sorta, but Ms Otto did throw me off, so I guess I didn’t really guess correctly (dang).


I did skim over the racier parts, skimmed really quickly.  However, if you like those bits you’ll love “Twice In One Lifetime.”
