Summary from the publisher:

His Secrets Can Destroy Her

From the moment Josie laid eyes on sexy, mysterious Shane Dean, she was in love. Their desire ignited a passionate affair, and within weeks, Shane had slipped a ring on her finger. It seemed her every fantasy was coming true . . . until her new husband disappeared without a trace. Now, two years and one broken heart later, Josie is shocked when the hospital calls: Shane has been found . . . at a crime scene with no memory of how he got there.

Her Love Can Save Him

Shane can't remember the blue-eyed angel at his bedside-or who he even is-but he knows something isn't right. His hearing is razor sharp, his physical strength incredible, and the urge to protect Josie overwhelming. For powerful enemies are hunting him, and Josie is the key to discovering why. As Shane struggles to unravel his past, dangerous new truths come to light. Can he protect the only woman he's ever loved? And can Josie trust a man she thought she knew-one who carries such a deadly secret?

My Musings:

FORGOTTEN SINS opens with a brief, heartbreaking scene of four young boys who are virtual prisoners in a sort of military camp.  At risk of great punishment, they sneak off at night to watch television and see what they can of the real world beyond their borders.  This is their first exposure to families and mothers.  They note that mothers look so “soft” and wonder why there are none in their lives.  They also decide that they are a family.

Shane was one of those boys, and it’s now twenty years later.  He wakes up injured in a hospital, with no memory of what happened, or even of his life.  It appears he was attacked and may have been the one who killed his assailants.  The authorities contact his wife, Josie, and she comes to the hospital.  Shane doesn’t remember her at all, but he likes what he sees.  Josie, however, has not seen her husband for two years since he deserted her and is in the process of filing for divorce.

Josie never stopped loving Shane. She was aware he is in some secret military-like organization, and goes off on missions, but he never gave her any details.  Two years ago he told her he would be back, but he never contacted her or returned.  Tired of that kind of life, she decided to end the marriage and get on with her life without Shane.  Now, because of his injuries, he needs her, and she agrees, though stating it’s only temporary.

Josie had a soft heart, and I liked her very much, although it was annoying when she had her  moments of doing stupid things in the face of danger.  Shane was to die for.  He is pure alpha, and as his memory returns, we learn his reasons for not returning to Josie.  He’s bound and determined to protect her now, and is torn between whether she’s safer with him or without him.  This whole book was fast paced and riveting.  We received some clues and bits and pieces of the story of these four boys, but all the answers will come in the upcoming three books of the Sin series.  I can’t wait to read them!

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
