... dreaming of a hero!

Returning from a disappointing meeting with a publisher Cecelia Harcourt is knocked over by a carriage and falls unconscious. Lieutenant Adam Hunt, recently discharged from the army,  lends her his assistance. The problem is that Cecelia has lost her memory and she views Adam as the hero from her novel. (It's Adam's brother, the Duke of Claringdon who is the hero and who is pulling strings that Adam doesn't want him to.)
Cecelia unwittingly takes on the identity of the lead woman in her novel, and gives herself a name that the Hunt's don't recognize as part of the ton. In the interests of Cecilia's healing, under the doctor's advice the family buy into her story, which leads to a whole new set of problems and mysteries.
A fast paced, fun novella. Suspend reality (like Cecelia does) and this is an endearing read.
