Overview

Claire Wilson's life was never more promising. She has boyfriend and a budding career as a nature photographer...until an accident robs her sight.
Now with no boyfriend, no career, Claire has chosen to shut the world out. Holed up in her little cottage, she is more than content to let life pass her by. Her dreams for tomorrow were stolen from her along with her vision.

Charming, single father, Jackson Akers has been paid in full for a landscaping job and he intends to see it through to the end - no matter how rude and irritated his new client is. When he learns of Claire's blindness, his creative mind kicks into high gear. She may want to live in seclusion, but he's hoping to change her mind.

Will Claire appreciate the heavily scented flowers and plants, the trickling waterfalls, and the textured paths Jackson has made for her? Claire has shut out the world, but has Jackson found a way in?

Read an Excerpt

Claire banged her toe on the coffee table. Again. "Ouch, ouch, ouch!" Pain shot through her foot.

Why hadn't she moved that blasted thing from the middle of the floor? Weeks had passed since the accident, and she still ran into things. She hated being so incompetent, so vulnerable. Actually, she hated life and the hand she'd been dealt, but what could she do? Complaining and self-pity wouldn't change the fact.

She was blind. Every time the thought crossed her mind, her throat seized.

Had her mind not been preoccupied with the new, Mr. Smooth-Talking Landscaper and this useless project, she could've focused on maneuvering through her living room.

Claire flopped down onto her cushy sofa and propped her bare feet on the squatty table. She couldn't wait for Amy's promised visit. She had a thing or two to say to her friend. Oh, the girl meant well. At one time in her life, Claire had been sweet like that. Then fate smacked her in the face and she had taken on a whole new outlook on life.

This was a nice, 184-page novella to soak in when you have little free time. I absolutely loved the sweet romance that I read in these pages. It was a nice twist that the protagonist was blind, and I loved not being able to rely on if the guy was hot or not (which he so was!). I also loved the fact that it's sex-free. It's hard to find good romance books that do not have a sex scene, and this one is one of those. The love was sweet and pure, which I loved. Bennett is a fantastic author (I've read several of her books) and I look forward to more! The only reason this book did not get a five-star review was because it seemed a bit too fast paced. Novellas are supposed to be shorter than novels (obviously!) so I understand why, but in the end, it was what made me not give this book a five-star review. I would still recommend this for anyone who has a little bit of free time and want a nice, sweet love story.
