Format: Mass Market Paperback
At 24, Sarah finally gets her first season in London. Although she has had a marriage agreement with a neighbor since childhood, she finds herself with many suitors. She comes to care particularly for Ashley "Hawkes" Castleford, but it seems he only cares about her in a friendly way, while his cousin Stewart courts her more ardently.
One of the hallmarks of this book is that the blind heroine is *not* a tortured, self-pitying soul who must be saved from herself. She is for the most part happy, having been without sight since childhood. The descriptions of how she senses people, and the scenes of friends and suitors helping her to "see" and reading to her are marvelous.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The book opens with Hawkes, the main male character, catching his paid mistress having an affair with his friend. Rather than displaying arrogant male pride (which is more typically how most authors would present this situation), Hawkes is just simply hurt by his friend's betrayal. Not so much by his mistress' betrayal, but his friend's. I really liked that.

In fact, I really liked how Hawkes was portrayed during the entire novel. Not your typical swaggering rake, but rather very openly sensitive and honorable in the true sense of the word.

When I learned that Sarah, the female lead, is blind, my hopes for the novel soared. I have read so many regencies and have found that the majority are the same, with stereotypical characters with stereotypical flaws in stereotypical situations. Not so with this book. There was nothing stereotypical about it. The characters, even the secondary ones, were beautifully presented and extremely likeable (except the villain of course). Both Hawkes and Sarah were portrayed with strengths and weaknesses.

The connection that the lead characters felt with each other was believable. I get annoyed with books where suddenly 2 people fall in love and you have no idea why one or neither did anything particularly love-worthy. In this book, you understand the gradual pull. Sarah is blind and she compensates for that lack with other senses which are heightened--her sense of smell, touch, even her ability to imagine and visualize. And it's like the author, knowing that sight is irrelevant, uses her words to conjure up emotions that are so powerful, so well-described that they are almost tangible.

I really couldn't put down this book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
What a delightful read. All the characters were so well written. You are drawn into their lives effortlessly. You feel the love, frustration and tension in everyone. You feel the love of family in the bonds between the three related men, Beauty (Stewart), Beast (Ashley) and his ward (Nate). It was fun to hear the story of where the men got the names from.

And the romance...indescribable! Sarah was a truly remarkable woman. There is a secret ... revealed early in the book but not on the cover description which I won't divulge.

A remarkable book that I will read over and over. Should be reprinted!
