Overview

A notorious baron aims to prove himself to a proper lady, whose lack of sight does not impair her better sense...

When a cruel prank leaves the blind Olivia Blake ripe for humiliation on a ballroom dance floor, she is rescued...by an infamous rake. Soon she is seduced by the charm of Adrian Calwell, the scandal-chased Baron of Norbury, who is much more than he seems.

Adrian's only goal in rescuing Olivia was to thwart another man's heartless trick. But Olivia proves to be well worth it, and Adrian is impressed by the unusual young lady. Unfortunately, his reputation as a scoundrel sets the Blake family against him.

He is forbidden to court her, but when rumors threaten Olivia's own reputation, Adrian takes matters into his own hands. It will take all of Adrian's ingenuity and all of Olivia's daring to find the truth and prevent a scandal at dawn.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - L Sims
A really charming short story of a rake who comes to the rescue of a blind girl, after a nasty prank by a cruel man, at a ball... I really enjoyed this short story. I have read many historical romances, but this was different featuring a heroine who is blind. Both lead characters were very nicely portrayed, I liked the side characters of Emma and Adrian's friend Robert Griffin.

If you like a nice and easy romantic read this fits the bill IMO.

    3.5 stars. Love is Blind is a cute, clean Regency romance novell

    3.5 stars. Love is Blind is a cute, clean Regency romance novella. The characters are likeable and the story moves along quickly. I was thrown by the multiple points of view (especially in such a short book) and shifts of point of view mid-scene, as well as some of the language, which didn't keep me "in period." Overall, Love is Blind is a good clean read for fans of Regency romance. fyi: I recieved a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Love is Blind by Elizabeth Cole Adrian Calwell has rescued Olivi

    Love is Blind by Elizabeth Cole
    Adrian Calwell has rescued Olivia Blake after another man at the ball has abandoned her. Olivia is blind and needs assistance in most things but allows him to lead her out of the ball after the dance.
    When asked he informs her of the steps as she holds his arm.
    Her cousin Emily helps by telling her what others are wearing and how good looking they are as she guides her around after Adrian has left her with her cousin.
    You can't even imagine how useful it is when being blind in not only being offered an arm but told how many steps and how far away they are.
    Problem is he will never get close again because he is a rake and has ruined many other females reputations. When she goes for a ride with him when the others are out she confides in him that Emily has turned down offers of marriage so
    she can stay close by to her. Other outings occur till her mother and uncle find out then the girls are not allowed out at all. Next they go to the public gardens and secretly meet him and he tells her he's determined to find ways to keep meeting her.
    He sends daily gifts of flowers. Her uncle intervenes and meet with Adrian also to find out what his plan is...
    Adrian finds out who's spreading the ugly rumors and will duel with him at dawn....
    I especially liked this one because of my blindness.
