Love is Blind by Lynsay Sands

Love is Blind by Lynsay Sands (her website is so out of date I'm not even going to link to it)

He’s been warned that Lady Clarissa Crambray is dangerous. Stomping on toes and burning piffles, the chestnut-haired beauty is clearly a force with which to be reckoned. But for Adrian Montfort, Earl of Mowbray, this is just the challenge he needs. He can handle one woman and her “unfortunate past.” Can any woman handle him?

Lady Clarissa Crambray wants a husband, but maybe not as much as her stepmother wants one for her. Doffing her spectacles might make a girl prettier, but how will she see? Yet, as all other suitors seem to shy away in terror, there comes a man to lead her to the dance floor. A dark, handsome blur of a man.

Oh, this was a delightful book. It's sweet and funny and cute and even rather hot in places. Clarissa's stepmother thinks that the spectacles Clarissa needs will harm her chances of a match, and so takes them away. After a number of mishaps, Clarissa has been relegated to a chair at events. No dancing, no eating, just sit and look demure.

What I liked best about this book is that Clarissa and Adrian are definitely meant for each other.

*sigh* I just found the book to be so sweet. But since my face hurts and I want to go to bed, I'm going to end this little piece. But really, go get the book. It's a good one. And I even like the cover. It's pretty.

I've never tried her but this sounds like the perfect book to start with! I'm also adding it to the TBB pile.

It's really cute. She can't see worth squat without her glasses, and he's been scarred by an accident. It's become fashionable for the women to become overly dramatic about the scar, so he's really sensitive about it. But she can't see it (or so he thinks). I just really liked their romance.

I still don't want to read this but at least the cover is (marginally) better than what they were first showing. I like that it's kinda out of focus, much like I suspect the world is for her without her glasses.
