Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Roderick Gideon Tremayne, the recently appointed Duke of Wentworth, never expected to find himself in New York City, tracking down a mysterious map important to his late mother. And he certainly never expected to be injured, only to wake up with no memory of who he is. But when he sees the fiery-haired beauty who's taken it upon herself to rescue him, suddenly his memory is the last thing on his mind.

Georgia Milton, the young head of New York's notorious Forty Thieves, feels responsible for the man who was trying to save her bag from a thief. But she's not prepared for the fierce passion he ignites within her. When his memory begins to return, her whole world is threatened, and Roderick must choose between the life he forgot and the life he never knew existed.…

Review:

"What begins as a straightforward retelling of The Prince and the Pauper becomes a mishmash of bewildering strands that never really get woven together. Georgia Milton, a young and pretty widow, lives in the notorious Five Points neighborhood in 1830 New York City. The sassy laundress is under the protection of the notorious Forty Thieves and dreams of moving out west. Then she meets Roderick Gideon Tremayne, the duke of Wentworth. When he loses his memory after being hit by an omnibus, he thinks he's Robinson Crusoe. Georgia takes care of him while the doctor tries to find Tremayne's family, and as she teaches him how to live as a poor person, they fall in love. Despite having amnesia, Roderick remembers certain things about being wealthy, and his bewildered reaction to Georgia's desperate conditions is the only high point of this meandering, overcomplicated romance.

New York City 1830


Georgia Milton may be the head of the forty thieves but she is known for being very forthright with everyone that she deals with even when she would be better off not saying anything at all. When another thief steals her bag a man that she doesn’t know comes to her rescue. Now Georgia feels responsible and is determined to help heal and get better so that he can get on with his life. What she never expects is the passion they share or the truth about Roderick.

Roderick Gideon Tremayne tries to help Georgia out when her bag is stolen unfortunately by helping her out he ends up getting hurt and forgetting who he is and anything about his former life. Now he is finding out more about life than he ever knew and seeing things in a completely different way than he has ever seen them before.

Roderick and Georgia are falling for each other but will what they have found together be able to withstand the truth of Roderick’s life when he remembers who he is and the fact that he his father is a Duke. Roderick is going to have to decide just what means the most to him. The love he has found with Georgia or his life that was ruled by society. Now they will find out just what they are made of and what is most important to each other and to themselves.



This is a wonderful twist on the Prince and the Pauper. The story makes 1830 New York City come to life for the reader and gives them a wonderful glimpse into what life was like for the people that had to work for everything they had in life. It also gives the reader a glimpse of what those same people might dream about for a better life. The characters are very human and the reader is completely able to relate to them even though the time period is completely different. This one that is worth getting and will have the reader eagerly turning the pages just to see what the character will be up to next.
