I love reading and as of now that is fiction only. Love all genres except horror and for the past few years, been gorging on romance. Thrillers are my first love and add some romance to it then all the more better.
Lion Of Darkness (Harlequin Presents, No 847) - Melinda Cross Rating 4.25 stars


OMG!I loved this book, this is the second I have read by this author and I am sure I will read more. The heroine is 25 and has been sheltered all her life by her father. She lost her sight when her mother died though the doctor called it hysterical blindness she never recovered it and so her father surrounded her with servants and did not allow her to seek an outside life and because she loved her father she allowed it. Now, her father is dead and as she learns their money is gone and she finally decides to learn how to do stuff on her own and goes to a school for the blind where she meets the hero.

Now, the book could have been icky patient-doctor relationship but it was romantic. The heroine is a true innocent while the hero isn't the friendliest guy since that is the technique he uses to break through to his patients. But Cassie is different, she seems to see things that no-one does. We see her becoming self-sufficient and Wyatt fighting with all his might what he feels for her because it is wrong and there is a possibility what she is feeling is not real, since she has been so sheltered, also he can't be as tough on her as he needs to be if he lets her see what he feels for her. Ah..the dilemma and everything made the book dreamy.
