What Lies Beneath - Andrea Laurence (HD #2152 - Apr 2012)

They say she's Cynthia Dempsey, fiancee of media mogul Will Taylor. But try as she might, she can't recall their high-society life or the man sitting by her hospital bed. Though her body certainly remembers him. Even as she senses the distance between them, the electricity when they touch is undeniable.

Will can hardly believe Cynthia's transformation. Gone is the ice queen who betrayed him, and in her place is a woman who seems genuine and warm. But can he risk his heart again, not knowing what might happen when her memory returns?

Excellent book.  This wasn't the usual amnesia story, as this combined amnesia and mistaken identity.  I liked the way that Will stood by her, even though they had called off the engagement right before the plane crash.  I think it said a lot about how good a person he was.  That being said, he was also very cautious about the apparent change in her personality, since he had been betrayed by her before.  Meanwhile, Cynthia was trying to remember the things that everyone was telling her, but none of it felt right.  When she realized that her old life didn't fit anymore, she followed Will's advice and looked for something that did. I loved seeing her as she made her "new" life work for her.  As the weeks went on, they got to know each other all over again and the feelings grew stronger.  When the mix-up came out, Will thought she had known all along and said some really harsh things.  After he had a chance to cool down, I really liked the way he made things right.  There were some very emotional moments in this book that made it one of the best I've read.
