This the most endearing book I have read because it's so funny, touching and believable. The hero is a blind man and the heroine is destitute yet it's just hilarious. Izzy's father is a famous author but his death leaves her penniless. Luckily her godfather leaves her an inheritance - a run down castle inhabited by an angry Duke. Ransom is bitter after losing his sight in a duel. He tries to get rid of Izzy but she is determined to stay at the castle.
One of best things about this book is the witty dialogue between Izzy and Ransom as they wrestle for the upper hand. As the story progresses their intriguing personal stories are revealed, layer by layer. Livening up the story is an uninvited entourage - fans of books written by Izzy's father, dressed in costumes and everything. Like real fans they are both fanatical and sweet. There is lots to like in this very enjoyable read. It's a six star novel.
