Julianne MacLean does it again with her newest historical, When a Stranger Loves Me. Set in 1875 on the Jersey shore, Lady Chelsea Campion is taking one of her many daily walks along the shore when she comes upon a naked man lying unconscious on the beach. Determining that there must have been a shipwreck, Chelsea summons help and nurses the man back to health while living a life of exile on the lone shore. Upon awakening, Blake remembers nothing and is susceptible to the charms of Chelsea and her family. He doesn't realize that he is being made a stud for her own personal reasons.

Chelsea's brother and sister-in-law cannot conceive and so concoct an outrageous plan. However, like all mislaid plans, they go awry with regretful conclusions. Blake's memory comes back gradually with surprising outcomes, albeit a predictable and somewhat boring ending.

All in all, MacLean has penned another unforgettable romance, although as she continues to write these wonderful stories I am hoping she will engage the reader more and not make the plots too dull like past authoresses I have known and loved.
