3.5 starsI just wanted to read a light romance. This book actually took me by surprise. I would not say that the romance in this is anything great.In fact the romance is just Meh. But the overall story is quiet good. Cassie is blind and broke and spends last of her money on getting herself treated. She has something called as hysterical blindness.I did not know that there is something known as hysterical blindness and I actually read about it online after reading this book. Cassie's portrayal is [...]

Rating 4.25 starsOMG!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 go [...]

Re Lion of Darkness - If your favorite films include Magnificent Obsession or TCM's Greatest Classic Film Collection: Legends - Bette Davis (Now, Voyager / Dark Victory / Old Acquaintance / Jezebel) then you will like this book. It has the same grand but arty style as many of those Irene Dunne and Bette Davis films of the 1940's and early 1950's. Our story starts with our 25 year old blind h, she has what is now called a "conversion disorder", in other words she is blind but there is no physical [...]

Setting: New YorkBeautiful doctor falls in love with beautiful hysterically blind girl as they try to unlock the trauma that is preventing her sight.If you can get over the discomfort of the violation of the doctor-patient relationship when the heroine had already led a singularly insular life which was already a form of abuse, then this was an enjoyable melodrama that reminded me of a 1940s Woman's Film. A whiff of THE SEVENTH VEIL mixed in with MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION, perhaps.Points for some he [...]

I'm glad I got a rec from a friend for this book because the first time I tried to read it I gave up on the second page. But when I got past that first thing that annoyed me I liked it. The heroine was sweet but naive. The hero was bowled over by her and had a hard time with that whole don't be kissing on your patients thing. I would have been happier if the book had taken place over a longer time period than a week though. I had a hard time believing that the heroine knew what love was much le [...]

A mesmerizing read about a young woman's decision to re-enter the world of the sighted having lived most of her life in seclusion after a horrible accident leaves her blinded as a small child. I found that I enjoyed reading more about how she coped with her blindness than the love angle. I didn't care much for the hero.I found his hatred of the blind unforgiving. His methods for treatment were beyond barbaric. However, the author did an incredible job of letting the reader see the world through [...]

4.25.(5 star on re-read). An absolute beauty of a tale. *Sigh* One of my most fave HQNS books everrrrrrrrrrr!Melinda Cross is one of my most fave authors. She's just so understanding of human emotions and her characters are to die for. I'm going promote her books: Read 'What's Right' and 'Pulse of the heartland' (both my absolute personal favorites!)

okay, so i started reading this book because two of my friends were really excited about this, and then I found outOH MY GOD! is this book amazing or what!It is so different from the other Harlequins I've read so far, and is so well written that I was a bit sad when it ended. Also, I would have really liked some sort of epilogue, but maybe that's because, I've gotten so used to them. It's not like the ending wasn't perfect, because it totally was.Cassie is one of the best Harlequin heroines that [...]

This was a well-written, character-driven story by Melinda Cross. The characterizations of the heroine and hero, Cassie and Wyatt, were vividly drawn. They seemed so real to me and because I sympathized with their plights, I was rooting for them to find heir HEA. Cassie, before she can carve out a happy, independent life for herself and possibly reverse her "hysterical blindness", has to face an emotionally traumatic event in her past that caused this condition. Wyatt, the psychiatrist responsib [...]

Cassie had hysterical blindness after an accident that claimed the life of her beloved mother. Unfortunately, she had a very protected rich father who prevented her ever attempt afterwards to communicate with the outer world and her only life was lived among servants till she became 25 years of age and her father dies. Then, she decides it was up time she faced the real world. Therefore, she enrolls to Windrows institute where blind people such as herself are taught to face realities. It was the [...]

Argumento:Después de la muerte de su padre, Cassie se armó de valor para marcharse de su hogar, donde había sido, a la vez, protegida e infeliz.

Al notable doctor Wyatt Field, quien había ayudado a infinidad de pacientes a aprender a vivir con su ceguera, lo confundía Cassie. Al contrario de ella, él no alcanzaba a comprender por qué le exigía lo que casi era imposible. Por otra parte, intentaba negar la fue [...]

first of all, I read this when I was like fourteen fifteen. my sister borrowed it from our local library and I thought hey let me try it out. and I LOVED IT. I loved how naive and clueless the heroine could be! especially since I knew nothing more than she did when I first read it haha.I'm gonna re read and give a better review when its a bit more fresh in my mind.

One of the better Harlequins I've read. I really liked this one and wish there had been an epilogue. The poor hero, having to be cruel to be kind to the heroine. Very well written.
