    should be book 11 in the Tenacious Trents series

    The Forgotten Marquess is book one in The Other Trents series by Jane Charles. I can’t give it more than a 3 star rating and here’s why. I have never read her previous series called The Tenacious Trents. Since I’ve not read any of the Trent books I found myself completely lost through most of the beginning of the book - the first 9 or so chapters I was floundering. Why not just make this book 11 in the Tenacious Trent series? I think labeling this book first in a series implies that the reader doesn’t need knowledge of previous stories or characters. If this book is meant to begin a new series then I shouldn’t have to go back and read anything else prior to this story. I finally threw in the towel at chapter 19 out of 34. I will probably go back and read The Tenacious Trents series when I have more time. Charles is a good author. I have read Her Muse, Lord Patrick and loved it. I was given a copy of this book.

    Well Worth the Read!

    I felt sorry for Tristan through the first half of the book. He loved his wife and never wanted to give up on her being dead, always having hope! Then when she did come back and didn't know him, he had to make her fall in love with him all over again! Elaina seemed at times more of a spoiled brat. Berating Tristan for things she had written about in her journals while trying to recover her memory. With her outbursts and temper during their marriage and courtship, she would have been a perfect hot tempered Sicilian. I did like how it was tied in that she had a deep fear of returning to her home, the reasons weren't exactly what I expected while reading the book! Her brothers seemed a mite over-protective, but I loved how Lucien threw caution to the winds at times! I can't wait for their stories! Thank you for the advanced copy, this is well worth the read!

    Reviving the old flame

    How a man will get back his wife’s love when she does not know who he is... At the beginning of the book I was assailed by a myriad of feelings, angst, sadness, anxiety, frustration, angst at Elaina for causing so much pain, sadness for Tristan and what he went through, anxiety for will they find each other in time, frustration at everyone around her tiptoeing like walking on eggs and many much more sentiments. The basis of the plot brought to my mind a book I read not so long ago, both husbands remarried but when in Mrs Bree Wolf, the second bride was a victim, and I felt sorry for her, here I confess I didn’t even pitied her, she was the artisan of her own doom until I understood she was too a casualty of Society’s expectations. At first, I thought the challenge would come from the repudiated wife’s side. But how wrong I was, it is a story with no vilain, only a man who tries to win back the wife who has forgotten him. Thus begins Tristan’s wooing of his returned wife. It was a beautiful tale of love from all sides, and the strength of the mind. Tristan is a wonderful man, he subjects himself to begin all over again his courtship because he can’t imagine a life without Elaina being part of it. At time, it was fun but also sad and painful when he fears she might lost to him. Elaine has a long way ahead as she learns who she has been, the life she has lived prior to her disappearance, but also who is the man she married, how she came to care for him. I immersed in their story, sucked by this dramatic tale where the memory or its lack hold back a love to flourish, where good intentions can do more harm than perhaps being blunt. As my first read by Mrs Jane Charles I was gladly surprised by her talent to bring to life flawed characters, they acted like normal peoples, they make mistake, they ask for forgiveness, I felt like i was in the same room with them, a spectator of a fragment of their life unfolding in front of me. 5 stars I was granted by the author an advance copy, I already preordered my own. Here is my true and unbiased opinion.

    A Second Chance at Love

    An extremely enchanting story of a second chance romance that nearly did not happen. I loved reading this story. It grabbed my attention from the very beginning. There was an argument, tempers tested, defiance felt, an orchestrated escape. The heroine, Elaina and her two toddler children went to France against her husband (our hero) Tristan's command she not go during war time. A storm came devoured the ship, she survived but had no memory of who she was or where she was coming from or going to. The one thing she was sure of was her first name, Elaina. I found Elaina's character to be strong willed with complex emotions and feelings. She is kind and loving, appreciated those around her and accepted her limited housekeeping skills. She realized what she was good at and helped as often as needed. After three years of not remembering, she decided to move on with her life and marry. At a dinner party at her betrothed turned her world upside down. Her real husband's brother was there, recognized her, reintroduced himself, filled her in with what he remembered that fateful night of the storm aboard the ship. But he was careful not to tell her too much for it may overwhelm her. It did not jog her memory. She felt nothing, nada. She decided to go back to England with him. When she arrived she did not recognize her husband. But when she arrived at her childhood home things started coming back to her. Her four brothers made it more difficult treating her like she was finest china that would break on a whim. They too were holding back telling her anything, even their names. I could identify with her how frustrating that would have been. Over time she gained nothing more from being there. Although Tristan had spent as much time with her as she allowed, he was determined that if she never remembered their life together that they would start anew. He would court her again and woo her. They had their ups and downs but deep in her heart she felt something special for Tristan. When the decision to take her home where she and Tristan lived, she became anxious and fearful. Tristan and all her brothers overrode her not wanting to go. She had a difficult time being there. In the first hours of being there for some reason were traumatic. She ran to the beach with Tristan hot on her heels. A storm was brewing, lightning struck she was wading in the water when all of a sudden she realized why she did not want to remember and she broke down and cried. Tristan pulled her out of the water as the sea was becoming rough and would have taken her down with the currents. Now Tristan's character was amazingly patient with her. Although from time to time she frustrated him. But that was one of the reasons he loved about her. They did argue from time to time because he was withholding information from her and she knew it. She was tired of the hovering of him and her brothers. Tristan became her confidant while at her childhood home. But now at their home, while pursuing her on the beach, he was as gentle as rain. For she was going through a shock of remembering something so awful so terrible she wished she would die. Tristan proved to her over and over again how he loved her and she saw the evidence of it after they returned to the house and she realized how he never gave up on her while she was lost. He lived believing that one day she would return and now she had. This book takes a good look at dealing with people with amnesia. The hit or miss recommendations that Elaina's brother the doctor was putting on her and the entire family. I felt for Elaina. It was easy to identify with her struggles to remember and her frustrations. I could even identify with her anger and despair. Tristan had excellent control over his thin patience with Elaina's brothers. But always, always never lost his patience with her. He was amazing. The love he had for Elaina jumped off the page and his struggle to temper his emotional and physical attachment to her was not easy to keep at bay. One could not help but feel the warmth of his love for Elaina, the depth of his love for her and the willingness to do whatever it took to make her his again. But he knew it had to grow otherwise who knew what the consequences would be. Elaina and Tristan's characters were well written, realistic and their personalities were well developed. The reading itself was 99% spelling and pronoun error free with excellent proof editing. An extremely satisfying read. There is never a dull moment and if you are like me, will want to read it straight through. It was that good. I highly recommend it and look forward to Jane Charles next book. I received an Advanced Readers Copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
