I won the e-book version of Love Comes Blindly by Phyllis Campbell by commenting on her post at Emily Bryan's Blog.
If love isn’t blind to past indiscretions, can absence truly make the heart grow fonder?
Lord Gregory Fielding has been wounded when he travels to Scotland to find the next big story for his London newspaper. Now blinded, he relies on the soft, comforting touch of one of the nurses at St. Mary’s Abbey. He thinks she’s a novice, but that doesn’t stop him from wanting to make her sigh in passion.
Madeline O’Neil cannot believe her misfortune. The man she had almost married three years ago is back in her life. Gregg doesn’t know who she is and she doesn’t dare tell him. Not until she makes him like the new Madeline. But as each day passes and her heart grows fonder, she fears he’ll hate her for certain once his eyesight returns. Especially when he discovers the secret she’s been keeping from him for three years…
And Ms. Campbell was so generous, she gave me the the book that comes before Love Comes Blindly. The H/H are only minor characters in Vows of Deception but she felt that I would enjoy reading Love Comes Blindly so much more if I read Vows of Deception first.

I am hoping that this week brings several other books that I am waiting on. Then again, they can take their time getting here so I can read the ones sitting on my dresser.
