When romance versus propriety...the heart always wins, but not without a chaperone, lots of gossip and possibly a scandal :)
Miss Elizabeth Armistead is betrothed to a British soldier, Duncan.
She was there, in India, when he had his accident and has been by his side during his healing.
Only he didn't heal fully, he was blinded.
But Elizabeth feels this is a blessing for she knows that he loves her for more than her beauty that he cannot even see anymore.
She is now awaiting his arrival in England where the banns will be read and the wedding will take place.
It is in London that she meets Mr. Colin Lloyd-Jones.
Colin is just getting over being betrayed and has sworn off all balls and the London season.
So he is quite brisk with Elizabeth when she shows up at his door needing help with her carriage.
But when he learns that she is already engaged he feels safe and lets his heart soften a little.
Their friendship grows as Elizabeth waits for her intended...
Now she finds herself with a decision to make...
Wait until you read the GREAT twist in the story towards the end!
So didn't see that coming!
LOVED. LOVED. LOVED. IT!
I SO HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!
