This is my Romantic Suspense and this snippet features my heroine, who left for dead, has no memory of the trauma--or who she is.
"Remember your name and everything else should fall back in place." Her head pounded and her chest felt tight. Physical excursion brought on a coughing spell and she wondered if crawling across the room might not have been a better course of action.
All of her discomfort receded into the background when she found herself standing in front of the bathroom mirror.
She was staring at a woman's reflection. She touched the cold glass with her fingertips, as if the contact could trigger a forgotten memory.
Surely, the tall, thin woman sporting a nasty purple bruise on the side of her face had a name.
She ran her trembling fingers through her shoulder-length dark read hair and traced the cut above her left eyebrow.
Funny, she never imagined she'd be so attractive. She swallowed and did a second take.
How could this possibly be real?
If this was really happening to her, she'd be short and average looking; that was how fate was, fickle and capricious.
Instead, she found the woman before her possessed an almost hypnotic beauty, intense and alluring. Was it also they type of beauty that kept women at arms' distance? She glanced at the bruise that marked her cheek and jaw. But what about the men?
Did her looks bring out the best or worst in the men she encountered in life, or had a jealous boyfriend been the one who injured her?
She looked into the green eyes shadowed with fatigue, and her entire being filled with sorrow and hopelessness. Something terrible had happened, but she was terrified that the perpetrator would come back and hurt her again. Or maybe, this next time, he'd succeed in killing her.
