Intro: First of all, that cover is straight out of my childhood bodice ripper reading days. It’s perfect. And, yes, I am not ashamed to admit that most of my bodice ripper reading days came in my childhood.
Heroine: Delphine-Delphine was such an excellent heroine. She was smart and strong and all those good things. I loved how she helped Stephen recover even though she wasn’t sure he returned her feelings. I didn’t know whether to find that cute or creepy at first but I landed on cute.
Hero: Stephen-What is it with blind heroes lately? I’ve been inundated with them. I am not complaining. At all. He was also such a sweet hero. I loved how Lecia Cornwall portrayed his recovery. It was gut-wrenching at times.
Chemistry: These two had a case of the stubborns. I spent half the time reading this book squeezing at their adorableness and the other half wanting to bash their heads in. But I love them for it. I also really liked how Delphine was infatuated with Stephen from the start but Stephen was holding a bit of a grudge.
Conclusion: Lecia Cornwall is one of my favorite historical romance writers. She’s on my list with Lisa Kleypas and Laura Kinsale. Her books are excellent in their angst and complex emotions. This one is no different and I fangirl so hard right now.
