Assaulted a week before a high-profile drug trafficking trial, assistant district attorney Madison Callahan narrowly escapes death…but suffers amnesia. Now, when she can’t recall the identity of her attacker, everyone is suspect—except the handsome policeman who saved her. Officer Noah Sinclair will do anything to bring the mob-connected drug trafficker to justice, including providing personal protection to Madison—the sister of the partner he nearly got killed. But helping her regain her memory may end their unlikely alliance because once she remembers him, Noah might be the last man she’ll want to rely on. As the trial looms and with the assailant dead set on ensuring that Madison doesn’t survive to see Christmas, it’ll take everything Noah’s got to keep Madison alive.
With such a crazy title and such a pretty cover, how could I resist?!
Harlequin’s Love Inspired Suspense line puts out short, fast-paced romantic suspense books with no sex and a little bit of praying every now and again. They make for good, quick reads, and the Christian aspect is negligible, so I cope.
Christmas Amnesia – of course – deals with “Romance Novel Amnesia”, which bears little resemblance to the real condition but makes for a good plot. It’s not a trope many authors are using anymore, but I’ll put up with it in a category romance.
The pace is fast and the action constant, which is something I really appreciate about these books, and also something that sometimes gets lost in longer romantic suspense reads.
I also liked that the heroine was smart and had a well-established career. There are a lot of pregnant damsels in these books, and this was a nice change.
A solid, quick read with plenty of tropes category romance readers favour.
