Unexpected Love...Review

About the book:
Nurse Lorenna Fields is drawn to a blind patient searching for his past. But as his memories return, will there be a place for her in his future?

Lorenna Fields has always taken her job at Chicago's Mercy Hospital seriously, determined never to become personally involved with her patients. But when a mysterious man with eyes like onyx is admitted after a shipwreck on Lake Michigan, she develops a connection with him that she can’t deny.

Slowly her patient regains consciousness, but to Renna’s dismay he has lost both his sight and his memory. Dubbed "Mr. Blackeyes" by her, the two build a strong, trusting friendship as they search for clues to his past. But part of her dreads the day of his recovery, convinced that his memories will take him away from her and his regained sight will reveal a secret about herself that Renna has been trying hard to hide.

Renna is a fantastic character.  Strong willed, capable and beautiful, she is burdened by the very noticeable birthmark on her face.  Believing that no man will love her because of it, she dedicates her life to nursing.  "Mr. Blackeyes" is the blind amnesiac she falls in love with.  As he regains his sight, Renna's fear is that her face will turn him away.

"Mr. Blackeyes" is the rogue turned believer, who wishes to change his ways as he remembers and regrets his past actions.  Can he convince Renna that his love is real and that she is the woman he wants by his side.

There was a teaser for this book at the end of Uncertain Heart  which made me anxious for its release.   I was so curious about Captain Sinclair and what happened to him and I wasn't disappointed.  I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and read it in an evening.

This is the third book in the Seasons of Redemption series by Andrea Boeshaar.  While it can stand alone, it's a far richer story if you've read the first two books.  A terrific story and one that I can wholeheartedly recommend.

Thanks to Anita Silva at Strang Communications and First Wildcard for the opportunity to review this book.  You can learn more about Andrea Boeshaar here.  You can read the first chapter here. You can purchase your own copy here.

Read 12/10
