The Unforgettable Hero | Valerie Bowman | Book Review

The Unforgettable Hero is a historical romance novella and part of Valerie Bowman’s Playful Brides series. I have previously read and reviewed two of the books in this series (The Untamed Earl and The Legendary Lord) which I enjoyed. This novella gives you a small peak into this world which I found enjoyable and easy to read.

The Unforgettable Hero focuses on Adam Hunt and Cecelia Harcourt. Cecelia has an accident and develops amnesia. She believes that she is a character from her book and that Adam is her intended. Adam and his family agree to go along with this charade until they can figure out who exactly Cecelia is and where she belongs. This leads to a combination of sweet and hilarious moments between the characters.

There is an immediate attraction between Cecelia and Adam which is complicated by the circumstances at hand. Given that this is a novella, there wasn’t as much time to explore this attraction as I would have liked. Everything moved along quickly which helped with the connections but also made it feel like I didn’t fully know these characters. As a reader who enjoys character driven stories, this was a disappointment for me. Yet, I still enjoyed the story because of it’s quick pace and slight humor.

Although the characters were not fully fleshed out, The Unforgettable Hero is easy to follow and understand. It was the perfect thing for an afternoon read that leaves you in a good mood. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical romances and is looking for a quick pick me up.
