Reputed to be a menace to polite society, Lady Clarissa Crambray was indeed a danger to herself and others.  In just one season, she has stepped on toes, set wigs afire and had even gone so far as to burn a gentleman’s piffle.  Most everyone avoids the accident-prone Lady Clarissa.  Adrian Montfort, Earl of Mowbray and veteran of the Napoleonic Wars, finds himself drawn to Lady Clarissa.  Despite her ‘unfortunate past’ and her alarming tendency to burn piffles, Adrian desires to learn more of the lovely Lady Clarissa.

Lady Clarissa’s stepmother is determined to see her wed.  While Lady Clarissa would like to marry, she would also like to see.  According to her stepmother, men aren’t attracted to girls in spectacles so her stepmother destroys Lady Clarissa’s.  Instead of attracting more suitors without her spectacles, gentlemen flee in fear whenever the clumsy Lady Clarissa is about.  One man, Adrian Montfort, Earl of Mowbray, is not daunted by Lady Clarissa’s reputation for mishaps and asks her to dance.  Although Lady Clarissa cannot clearly see the Earl of Mowbray, she knows he is handsome and an amazing dancer.

When a book ends and it leaves me with a happy sigh and a grin on my face, I know I have read a really good book.  Lynsay Sands’ Love is Blind is a really good book!  Truly, how could you not adore a book that successfully combines burning piffles and romance?  Not only did Love is Blind tickle my funny bone, it satisfied my romantic soul.   Love is Blind is charmingly romantic and a wonderfully engaging read!
