When the Marquis of Amberley's coach is waylaid by highwaymen and his coachman shot, he is forced to take shelter at the first house he finds and is subsequently trapped there for a week by a severe snow storm.
Oakleigh Manor is the home of Rosalind Vernon who lives alone but for her devoted servants and an ill-natured parrot, cut off from the outside world by the tragic result of a childhood accident. But Rosalind is brave and bright and totally devoid of self-pity - and it is these qualities which, as the snow continues to fall, touch the Marquis's heart.
On his return to London, the Marquis persuades Rosalind's brother, Philip, to bring her to town for a taste of society, despite her handicap.
But the course of Amberley's courtship is far from smooth. Philip Vernon actively dislikes him; Rosalind appears to be falling under the spell of the suave Duke of Rockliffe; and worst of all, Amberley in haunted by a dark and terrible secret that, if revealed, may cause him to lose Rosalind forever.

    Couldn't put it down!

    From the first chapter I couldn't stop reading this book. It is very well written, the hero and heroine have a wonderful, gentle chemistry between them, and if you can forgive some of the weaker plot points (there were a few, but not many), you will love this one as much as I did. I was intrigued by the idea of a blind heroine and thought it was handled very well. I loved how our hero brought out her confidence. I am a huge fan of quality period romance novels, like the kind I get from Georgette Heyer, and Stella Riley blew me away. I will definitely read more of her work.
