Priscilla Hamilton's life changed forever the night she found the naked man on her front steps. Beaten and feverish, the man was obviously in need of help. When he came to, unable to remember even his own name, she knew this could be the adventure she was waiting to live and not just write about.

Named John Wolfe by the fiercely independent woman who helped nurse him back to health, and by her strange father who spends more time in his study with his experiments than with his family, he struggles to remember his life. As the pieces of the puzzle begin falling in place, John finds himself attracted to his rescuer, but will that all change when he finds out who he is?

Humor is abundant in this captivating story. Candace Camp's quirky characters, innovative situations, and wonderful dialogue make this book a must read. SENSUAL (Sept., 408 pp., $5.99)

When a naked man lands on her doorstep begging for help, Priscilla takes him in and cares for him.  He doesn't know his name.  He doesn't know how he was injured.  The only thing he is sure of is he had been kidnapped and held in a shed in the woods.  Priscilla names him John.  Together they try to discover John's true identity and find out who wants him out of the picture.

This is a very predictable historical romance.  The plot was a little slow and there were no surprises.  My rating:  2.5 Stars.
