Cedric, Viscount Sheridan
Once a womanizer.
Now a recluse.
Cedric used to be the ton’s golden boy, but the loss of his sight has left him a reclusive shell of man. His days of womanizing, horse racing and pistol shooting lost forever. But a shocking proposal from the infamous ice maiden, Anne Chessley changes everything.
Still reeling from her father’s death, Anne’s deepest wish is to avoid the hordes of fortune hunters who will soon be beating down her door. Proposing marriage to Cedric is an act of desperation that even has her agreeing to his one wicked demand.
His only stipulation: she must respond passionately and wantonly in his bed. Her agreement barely crosses her lips before he begins a sensual assault on the icy walls she's built around her heart. Yet even as they catch a glimpse of true happiness, enemies are closing in and they have to trust each other, and themselves, to ever find a happily ever after.
Warning: Contains an outwardly aloof heroine with a secretly tender heart, a once-notorious rake who isn’t quite as rusty at seduction as he feared, and a band of rogues who join together to make sure happily-ever-afters do come true.
Good storyline an interesting characters.
An Interesting Take
I quite enjoyed this story and I thought his blindness was an interesting take on a romance novel. I did feel like there were a few questions and events that were just kind of blown over, especially for how long the book was (don't want to give spoilers), but overall a nice read.
I had to stop reading. I really didn’t like the characters. The only conversation seemed to be about what he wanted to do to her and her being cold. No chemistry no substance
