After the darkness of a dungeon in India, artist Josiah Hastings found that years of imprisonment left his eyesight weak and failing.

My Thoughts: Oh Renee! A going-blind hero? I've been craving one (is that bad? odd? not normal?) since reading Teresa Medeiros' Yours Until Dawn! I know this book will be smashing! And not just because the housekeeper's named after moi ;) I am currently re-beginning Ecstasy Wears Emeralds after my grandmother 'borrowed' it while I was in the middle of it. But this author has the goods. I knew 3 chapters in she was good and I can't wait to revisit Emeralds, catch up with Rubies and Sapphires, and then ATTACK Pearls ...all while eagerly awaiting Opals ;) And if any of you are wondering what the hell I am talking about, just check out Renee Bernard and get back to me ;)

Until Next Week<3...


  1. Awesome series. She writes great characters and the way the backstory is spread out over the course of all the books is divine.

    I just love seeing these tortured heros overcoming all they have been through to find love.

  2. I have not read this series! But my curiosity is peaked now.....will have to start on them!

  3. I found Renee's books when she was a debut author years ago, loved them! But I haven't read her newest ones (last year or so). I have no excuse for it either. They are on my list, though!

    And this one may just move up my list a bit more--I'm always looking for a good romance where either the hero or heroine are blind (or nearly so). I think the reason I search for them is with my poor vision, I can totally relate. It's nice to know that perhaps I can get my HEA too. :) Now I just need to find the perfect hero....

  4. I have not read this book but I totally get what you are saying about the Teresa Medeiros book. I've been looking for a hero like that too. I loved that book and I loved the Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie but those are the only two books I'd ever discovered with a "different" sort of hero. Thanks for the recommendation.

  5. Hi,

    I just found your blog. I completely understand your addiction to romance books. I have been reading them since I was 19 years old.

    Love and Hugs,
