Sara Blayne turns her formidable storytelling talents to yet another Powell sibling in A NOBLE HEART (4). This time the action swirls about William, eldest son and heir to the earl of Bancroft. Wounded in a duel and carried off to a remote cottage by one of his seconds, he awakes with no memory of who he is or how he came to be injured. All he knows is that the lovely face he first sees is the one he wishes to see for the rest of his life. Can he convince his hostess that his feelings are true? Although a better balance between narrative and dialogue would have been icing on the cake, Ms. Blayne surrounds her immensely appealing couple with an exciting plot and irresistible romance.
