The Bourne Matrimonial Agency has one rule: Never fall in love with the client. A simple thing to remember… unless you’re a matchmaker with amnesia.
The Duke of Rydstrom requires a wife. Preferably one with a large fortune and a complete lack of curiosity. The last thing he needs is a meddling matchmaker determined to dig up his dark family secrets.
All Jacinda wants is to find a bride for a duke. How hard could that be? He’s handsome, enigmatic… and hiding something. She’s sure of it. Determined to discover what it is, she travels to his crumbling cliffside estate. Yet, by the time she washes up on his beach, she can no longer remember who she is, or why the duke is so familiar to her. All she knows is that his kisses are unforgettable—and she intends to use every skill she can to discover what’s in his heart . . .
When Miss Bourne can’t remember what brought her to his ancestral home, Rydstrom intends to keep it that way. Yet as the days pass, his true challenge will be safeguarding his secret while resisting this woman who—confound it all—may well be his perfect match.

Review of How to Forget a Duke
Review (4.5 Stars): How to Forget a Duke was a delightfully charming twist on the classic tale of Emma but with a little Bourne Identity to spice things up. Jacinda Bourne is a matchmaker determined to find a wife for The Duke of Rydstrom but she must figure out what the Duke is hiding before she can find the right woman for him. When her investigation leads to his crumbling estate and an accident causes her to wash up ashore with no memory of her identity, things start to get very interesting. Rydstrom will do whatever it takes to prevent Jacinda from remembering why she went to his crumbling estate in the first place but this causes sparks to fly as they spend more time with one another. Is Jacinda the woman that he has been looking for all along? Only time will tell but Jacinda gets closer to regaining her memory with every passing day.
I loved How to Forget a Duke because these characters were so amusing when they were around each other. Jacinda was a great heroine, who was determined to find out why Rydstrom really needed a wife and what secrets he was trying to hide from her. She was fun, smart and so very spunky when it came to verbally sparring with the Duke. I loved their chemistry and the amnesia aspect to the story was absolutely entertaining. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series and I’m adding Ms. Lorret to my preorder list.
